  1. A couple more items sold. Rest going on TM later this week if no further interest from members. Cheers and glad I could help out the couple of people who've taken parts so far.
  2. Added details of door Added subwoofer in box (custom fit to e30, but will fit other cars).
  3. sh*t! I didn't specify the correct side lights for a couple of them. Just kept typing RHS when some should have been LHS. Hopefully if you need LHS you'll still see this. Have fixed the original post.
  4. The e30 is gone and so I have a few bits and bobs I'd been saving in case I ever needed them. My hoarding tendency is your gain as these are now all for sale for peanuts. Make an offer on any of the following: Tail lights - lightly smoked. Sans seals. F/L LHS high beam F/L LHS low beam ellipsoid Pre-F/L LHS low beam 1x bumper indicator lens pair of side repeaters F/L RHS rear door (silver) - complete except for door card. good cond, no dings or rust. Pioneer ts-w306C Subwoofer in custom ported box. Box dimensions to fit e30 boot, but will fit in most cars. I have the original manual and box somewhere. Never abused - sounds as good as the day I bought it. Box is carpeted except for the back which is not visible when installed. Photos added to dropbox. F/L RHS headlight frame with high-beam unit SOLD F/L LHS foglight SOLD F/L K&N panel filter for OEM airbox SOLD All parts are used but in good condition. Photos are here Going on trademe shortly unless sold here first. I will take any offer that isn't insulting if you get in before trademe.
  5. I have a Left-hand one in good condition. No marks, chips or cracks on the lens. Sorry, don't have a pair. Make an offer I can't refuse.
  6. Hey y'all. I'm looking for a new car and I'm out of touch with what's good and what's not. I need something versatile that looks good, is reliable, has a comfortable and well-appointed interior, has ok to good performance, can handle light tow duties and costs about $20k (preferably under, but could go a little over). Nominal maximum of 100kms and 2006 or newer. So I'm considering E91's (325i or above), e83 X3's (2.5si and above), b7 and b8 A4 wagons 2.0 petrol or diesel and above, and b7 passat wagons 2.0 petrol or diesel and above (a reasonable r36 is possible at the top of my budget) Anyone here able to tell me what to look out for or avoid or had any experience with any of these? Cheers
  7. I can remember replacing the entire arm once. Wasn't expensive although that was maybe 10-12 years ago. Ask Gavin to price the whole arm as well in case it's simpler and not too expensive. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  8. Hi all I'm considering buying an e91 and there are a lot of imports with the N53 engine (325i and 330i). Wikipedia says the N53 was never sold in the Australia market due to the high sulphur content of the fuel. Our fuel is also high in sulphur. Does anyone know of any problems from imports running N53 engines on NZ fuel? Cheers
  9. Working on that. Might not be a BMW. Or it might. No rush as I still have my daily (Hilux). I've test driven a Volkswagen and an Audi and have a BMW on the list.
  10. SOLD End of an era - 10 years of ownership. Thanks to everyone from BS, especially CEHQ for all of the advice and good times over the years. And cheers to Gavin from Euro Italian for the great service providing parts to keep it on the road. To all the current and past e30 owners - it's been an honour rubbing shoulders with you. Keep up the love! Chur
  11. After ten years of ownership it's time to part ways. (Although I'm finding it hard even just to type that sentence). Seriously for sale. Genuine buyers feel free to get in touch. Trademe Auction
  12. Just not a fan of the styling. No other reason. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  13. I basically keep coming back to a 330d wagon (hens teeth in nz) or a4 3.0d quattro wagon. Was a good exercise though to see what else is out there. Now I'll just bide my time until I get rid of the e30 and the ute before I go shopping. Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  14. The Guilia? It looks awesome, but probably out of my price range. I'm looking in the 5 years old market. That v6 sounds brilliant though! Sent from my HTC_PN071 using Tapatalk
  15. I'm not really wanting a ute either. That's just what I'm coming from. I've not made any progress otherwise on a new car except the Alfa is back off the list. While we're on the subject though, I had an Amarok from new for 2 years (up until November last year) and while it didn't have the full torque of the 3.0 Hilux, it was actually a great little engine. I towed a 3 tonne trailer (max towing capacity for the Amarok) up the north side of the Brynderwyns heading south over a dozen times and it would happily pull it up there at the 80 km limit (not much in reserve though). It was great around town, and without the trailer I could get between 7 and 8 L/100km without driving particularly economically. As the vehicle was only 2 years old when I moved to the Hilux, I can't comment on long-term durability of the small capacity engine. But having put 60,000kms on it on those two years I can say it was a fantastic package and by far the best ute I've ever spent any serious time in. It performed great off-road too, it has brilliant safety features (for any car, not just a ute), it has the best interior of any ute, it was the best looking ute when it was released and still looks good despite being an old design now. I would definitely have one again. But that's just my opinion - it certainly wouldn't suit everyone and we all have our loyalties.
