  1. WTB: an X1 parcel tray (E84)

    Looking for a parcel tray / boot cover for my wife's 2011 X1 if anyone has one spare??
  2. Obsessive Car Detailing services - wow.

    4 months later the car still looks great too...
  3. Finally....New 335i Owner

    If you can't find any centrecaps locally, these guys are good to deal with: http://www.purems.com/Products/BBSCENTERCAPS-BBS-Center-Caps
  4. Obsessive Car Detailing services - wow.

    So I finally took the fiancee's daily driver into see Christian & team at OCD this week, given it's about to be used for a wedding car. I can't recommend them highly enough - top operators who know exactly what they're doing. If you're like me and have been thinking about using them for some time, see the images below to encourage you to book in! Christian (CSET) made it an incredibly easy task. Check them out at ocdetailing.co.nz Thanks guys.
  5. BBS Centre Caps

    From memory mine were 80mm for RC303.
  6. BBS Centre Caps

    I did a few years ago. They were great to deal with.
  7. Hi! 130i LCI

    I got Michelin Pilot Sport 3 from Grey Lynn TyreWorx for a sharp price a couple of weeks ago. I'd give them a go if you're in Auckland.
  8. MissBM V.2

    I've been looking for tyres recently too as my "Kaiser" branded tyres are similarly horrendous in the wet. Think I've settled on RE003 - especially given Bridgestone does buy 3 get 1 free for State customers.
  9. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    That would have got the car going again.... It didn't deserve that kind of attention!
  10. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    The best case was bent valves, but more likely pistons etc. The engine had lost compression.
  11. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    Agree Glenn - I've sold it to someone with the skills to rebuild the engine themselves. Wasn't worth going down the path of a second hand engine to risk it again. Sometimes you just take it as a learning and move on (and away from VW).
  12. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    Thanks mate - unfortunately no one had one...
  13. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    Ha - budget says no unfortunately. However that would be incredible!
  14. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    Skipped chain I think, lost compression. Best case = bent valves.
  15. Looking for a VW 1.4TSI engine

    I know this is unlikely... But does anyone know of a spare 1.4 TSI twin charged VW engine for sale? It's the BLG engine. Long story, as well as a long shot. Cheers guys
