  1. I had it at an electricians, we replaced the seized compressor but the AC still wouldn't work. Both he and Ray at HellBM said the fans themselves are notorious for failing....do you think the resistor is a possibility?
  2. Wondering if anyone can suggest where to source a replacement aircon electric fan for our 203 e39 530? Tried HellBM but not in stock. Current weather is making life difficult for the wife and our 2 year old little girl. Cheers.
  3. I'm also after a blue fuel pump if you have any....
  4. Hi Guys Not from my BMW but from our other racecar, some of you might enjoy it.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tt0rHvF24M
  5. I agre with the age thing PLUS, the e46 and on are cars that are moving rapidly away from the home mechanic. As such, while I could choose to buy an e46 m3 or later, I choose not to. So i would disagree on the ugly step child thing.. I have also now been sucked in to derailing a for sale thread further (my original point) so my bad, sorry about that!
  6. I did notice the dates and should have said I hope you "achieved"... Wonder if it sold and for what sort of money......I am impatiently waitng to see e36 m3's start to appreciate! One wouldn't think they could get much lower in price than some of the older, higher km ones have gone for lately.
  7. Are comments on the price and worthiness of the part or vehicle here in the for sale section really necessary? This guy in good faith lists his car and gets nothing but grief for it. This is not conducive to a proactive and inviting forum......having received "irregular" comments on my recent for sale listing I don't get it.... Certainly makes me think the OP, like me, would think twice about posting anything for sale but basic parts here again and that is a pity for what is overall a good forum. OP good luck with the sale, for your own (and my future) benefit, I hope you achieve top dollar for your Dakar e36 M3
  8. Wing sold. Cheers.
  9. Instead of being rude and ignorant acting like im not even here, why not just ask..... Snap your seIf. Jeez the internet, where anybody can be a dick. I paid $250 for the wing and $50 for the boot. Happy to do wing only for $250.00.
  10. Having a lot of fun with my race car lately and have decided to focus efforts on that. This leaves a couple of M3 projects not required...one being this cool LTW wing... http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1016797134&ed=true
  11. resurrecting an old thread.... Can anyone advise if this IS a straight swap or not please?
  12. well freight is going to be the killer so the more in the better. Profile cut sounds great but I know nothing about it....care to explain further? The support brackets underneath look easy to fold up, from a template.
  13. Mean we should chip in and buy one unit from them. I can make subsequent items once we have the template on my bandsaw etc.....
  14. Because unlike people who mostly operate as individuals and post on forums to try and learn collectively, they have budgets, fabricators, engineers and flow analyses software etc?
