    X5 4.8is - Valley Pan Leak

    no point not using the right tools. because when you use the wrong tools, screw it up, try to solve the problem, and end up buying the correct tool to put it back together again any way, why wouldnt you.

    E46 330i - Help with coolant flush.

    E46 330i - Help with coolant flush.

    take the coolant you brought at Repco back, and buy genuine BMW coolant from dealer. it is same price/L as the repco stuff so you might as well use it, and is the correct stuff for the car.

    E30 330D OMG

    i can critisie that build too, so here i go dont read on if you dont want Its not a 330D, that is a M51B25 engine not an M57B30. so its a 325td/tds. you can see it is a plastic cover on top so it looks like a M57 stupid place to mount the amplifiers, how do they dissapait heat in that tiny box? Headliner looks like its been sprayed using a paint can that is 90% empty. i bet it gets flat batteries a lot with a tiny battery like that for a diesel engine. suspension comments as per above. rest is styling which i keep to myself when it comes to others cars, because thats subjective.

    Project twin e34's

    yeah front is easy to pull off, i modified how it connected on my E34 Touring so that it was about 6 bolts to take the whole front end off (after removing bonnet) and fold it round (wiring bonnet release etc still intact). impossible to get a V12 in there with the front still on. Hammanns are such a good looking wheel in thier own right have never owned a set tho! As for that AMG supercharger. Not sure if im excited or disspointed its going on your car ha, the dissapointment is only the badge on top tho!

  11. _ethrty-Andy_


    well yes that would be an obvious exception.

    SPOTTED! The official thread

    had the compact there all race ready. And then brought a 318i auto 260km coupe, just been repainted alpine wiess the year before. so nothing special, decided it would be a project as i have always wanted to build up a white coupe. decided there was no point having two cars essentially the same under neath, and for the $8-10k or so to get the car there i decided well if the E30 ever does get put into the wall then i can buy another one and reshell again if it comes to that, but up until that point which hopefully never comes, better to do the way i have done it. also with the compact being dereg, at least with the E30 i can drive to and hopefully home from events etc. As for performance, the compact was quicker with otherwise the same setup. but thats also probably because the E30 coupe has a half cage and a full interior so thats another 100kg i guess. i havent put this car over the scales, but the compact was 1060kg with the M52, M3 brakes full tank of gas and one seat. i would say the E30 would be 1200kg maybe ?

    if its a sedan, no E36 is worth bothering with yet. coupe wagon cabby then mayyybbbeee worth picking up. would have to be well specced and have all the goodies etc.

    My New Trolley

    One of the employees at a customer of mine brought one about a month ago, less than 1000km and it was stacked by a truck going into the back of it. gutted. apparently is going to buy another, so i guess you can extrapolate they are happy with how it performed in a crash. Hybrids dont stack up economically or financially on thier own. they only start to become viable when you put a value on perception of customers of your business, or the neighbours, and also that if they didnt sell any then battery technology would not progress.

    Swann Insurance: yay or nay?

    Yep My cabby is with them, no claims, in fact i would be surprised if anyone ever has, we dont use the cars, and when we do we are extra 'specially careful with them! At the time i took the cover out it was my only car, but i prooved that i had an unlimited use company car which they were happy with. of course, now its not my only car. The X5 is insured with ASB which is pretty reasonable cost
