    Thanks Kasey, it's been a great project...nice step up from the E30 too.

    Warrent time today. Took it to VTNZ as I was confident there weren't any issues. Turns out the orange film on the rear indicators had cracked off and they failed it because they were white. A quick trip to Repco and it's all sorted. 🙂
  3. Bumping this old thread. Anyone posted themselves shocks from the states to NZ, and have any issues?? Cheers, A.

    Love this. Looking forward to seeing another E30 round the eastern suburbs regularly. The BMW clubbers will also be able to tell you where your kid(s) (at least the car) is without installing a GPS 😂.

    Thanks man. Yeah I had to get a couple of new ones on the front....been sitting on these rims for a while waiting for some spare money to come round. Went for the cheaper option of hankooks @ $215 a corner. My tyre guy wasn’t very impressed that I was swapping out the 10,000km old RE003’s and S001’s for these. I’m just going to hoard them for now.

    Quick clean yesterday, and for once it didn't rain overnight so it's still clean today!

    And a couple more....I’m pretty stoked with how the 18’s look and feel.

    Yeah, could do with an update but I’m holding off as long as I can.

    A few day time pics yes, that is the baby in the baby capsule in the back seat .. @Olaf super keen to shoot photos in the future. At the moment it's pretty hard for me to lock in a time but that will change...eventually.....i hope! Thanks @qube!

    212,756 km A while back I picked up @qube's Mpars. Today I finally got around to getting them fitted and balanced.
  12. Welcome, I have a AUX cable for E39 you can have.

    Just bought an e34 540i

    I got a set of style 66’s about a year ago off the forums for $550 IRC. They were clean but had a little bit of curbing. I put a new set of potenza’s on for $1100. Have treated me well.

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Replaced front brake pad sensor on the E39, good bye check brake lines message.

    211,450km installed new lemforder control arms. Tension and thrust arms both sides. I hadn’t done this earlier due to @rusteee having already done them 30,000km earlier with Meyle HD ones (which still looked really good when I pulled them out?) But the big news is that it has cured the 100km shimmy i had. This was a lasting frustration I’ve had with this car since purchase, so I am so happy to finally have it silky smooth as it should be. I ordered the arms from FCP in two orders to avoid gst and they were on the limit @400 each side but they both came in under the radar. Since these seem to be a real consumable on the E39 I’m hoping to be able to use FCP’s lifetime warrenty should they fail in the future.
