    set of wheels $800 ?

    I was tempted to buy it just for the style 95s but then would have to figure out what to do with the rest of the car...

    Alcantara upholstery

    Have any of you re-done your interior with Alcantara? I know the headlining and pillars are a common one but I'm talking the slightly more unusual areas to re-trim, I saw a e38 with the boot lining done and it looked amazing. Do any of you have a source for rolls of the stuff?

    I'd be super interested to see how the gear knob turns out, want to do mine as well as its flaking and shitty.

    Besides, we're here to talk about Dave's car(s), not mine. Feck I love that colour!

    95 E38 740i

    Yeah it's not to everyone's tastes that's for sure, but I like it and that's what matters. As long as I'm looking back at it every time I walk away from it I know I'm doing ok.

    This sort of height. I have a hot hatch as a daily/fun car so I'm not too worried about performance.

    95 E38 740i

    Have thought about it for sure, I don't think they'll quite give the drop I'm after though. I know getting real low isn't a popular thing on this forum but it's what I'm after for the 7, it's just going to be a road tripper/cruiser so I'm not too worried about firmness, I've heard good things about the BC coilovers though, not too harsh apparently. I'll pop up a photo of the height I'm looking for to give you an idea

    Thanks man! Still trying to figure out which coilovers to go for, almost settled on BC but time will tell. I wish FK still made them for e38s!

    95 E38 740i

    Here's a couple from the other day. It needs de-badging, tinting and lowering but I love it. I've wanted a 7 for years so it's my baby.

    95 E38 740i

    Hot damn, I like it. I'd put some photos up of mine but I'm so ashamed of the current ride height I've just been leaving it in the garage under its car cover until I choose coil overs. Plus I can't be bothered washing it every time I go out in the Wellington weather.

    PARTING OUT 96 E38 735i

    Shieeet, 1 might be better than none though... Both of mine are gone. How much just the glass? Move to Wellington and we can start an e38 club.

    What sort of wing mirror glass does it have mate?

    WTB e38 coilovers

    As the title suggests I'm on the hunt for e38 coilovers for a 2001 728i w/ EDC Was set on FK coilovers but they no longer make them so looking where to go now, any suggestions are welcome?

    WTB e38 coilovers

    I'll pass for now, thanks though Brent. Although I can't stand to look at the gap between the tire and fender I'll just leave it under a car cover until I shell out for coilovers.

    WTB e38 coilovers

    Any of you had experience with LOWTEC coilovers?

    WTB e38 coilovers

    Mine probably have a years life left in them so are due for a re-fresh anyway, would rather go adjustables and have the freedom to raise/lower it than spend a small fortune on new shocks.

    FS: E28 M535i

    Oh sweet Jesus... It's times like this I wish male prostitution was a little more lucrative...

    WTB Style 95 wheels

    As the title suggests, after a set of style 95 wheels, even better if they have tires that'll fit on a e38 but wheels alone is fine.

    WTB Style 95 wheels

    I think I've found some with tires that'll work on my e38, thanks though. Do you have any stock springs for a 2001 e38 728i? Don't need the shocks, just the springs.

    N00b with an e39

    I can't quite remember, I took it to auto electricians and pros and none of them could find the issue. I think I was trawling through forums one day and one guy mentioned that he was having a similar issue and to check the flexi joints for frayed wires as they short out and stop the car going into sleepy time mode and drain the battery. Good luck!

    N00b with an e39

    I had a battery issue with one of my e39s once, it turned out to be frayed wires in the rubber flexi hose thing between the boot lid and the car (by the hinge). Little bit of solder and heat shrink and you're away. Just don't be dumb like me and forget to put the wrap on before you solder, I did it about 5 times, f**king idiot.

    Would that Grom kit work for an e38?

    Back in a BMW after a little break.

    Hey boys and girls, After a little gap year involving a VW and a few motorcycles, I'm finally back in a BMW. Can't stay away! I've bought myself a black on black 2001 728i. All stock for now but plenty of plans in the works including coilovers and style 95s. Speaking of, do any of you wheel hoarders have a set sitting in the back of your garage that you'd be willing to part with? Preferably down my end of the North Island but can't be too fussy. Pictures will follow after I've given it a good clean.

    Help me get back in a BMW!

    Hey guys, I know it's not a BM but I'm selling it to get back in a proper car so I figure it's ok. I'm selling my 2002 VW Golf 4 Motion VR-6 so I can buy a motorbike and a e28 I've had my eye on for a while. It goes like the clappers and is a great little car. Sounds unbelievably good, like holy bejesus *drool* kind of good. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=812621500 Check it out and pass it on, help get a brother back into a bimmer.
