    Quick rant thread.

    I got pulled over for some education from a cop for having my rear fogs on in the E30...tbh...I didn't know I had rear fog lights 🤪 The irony was it actually was foggy, even the airport was closed 🤣
  2. I'm looking for the M-Sport front left sill cover part number: Part #: BMW-51472695661 Anyone know where @Gabe79's car went after turners??
  3. Man, be glad you don't have style 5's! This combined with a pressure washer makes really light work of the wheels https://www.detaildepot.co.nz/product/carpro-iron-x-lemon-scent-iron-filings-and-contaminants-cleaner-1l/

    @hunter both don't do anything to the beam as far as I can tell, I just like the modern look of the white light. I did see these recently though https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-12129-led-bright-white-angel-eye-bulb-upgrade-e39-e60-e63-e65-x5-x3/ Would be keen to see how much brighter they are.
  5. Yeah genuine. Yeah I thought it was abit extreme too, especially since last time he was here I showed him them and he said yeah no problem $120.
  6. Hi, Wheel Magician don't think they can fix my wheel and they believe it needs to be sandblasted and repainted. Who does more extensive wheel repair work in Wellington....or Auckland? Wheel in question: Cheers, A.

    Perfection^ 😎 That makes sense. My old one had black stitching, this new one came out of the boot of that grey M5 with the insane air intakes that was for sale recently, but it was facelift so who knows where this wheel actually came from. Best $100 i’ve spent.

    Not sure what the deal is with the different coloured stitching? Anyone know?

    2185XX km Few cosmetic things tidied up today. Bonnet resprayed It was always a little dull but it really has faded to the point it was starting to get a big rust patch in it. The Body Stable in Miramar did the work. Before: After: Seemed like a good time to put some gloss black grills in and new badge. New mirror glass: The last one I got to replace the leaking one was for the smaller mirrors, now we are back to big mirrors on both side Steering wheel: I wanted the facelift one but with the airbag recall and not what it was murky waters. I picked this up for a bargain on trademe and fitted my airbag which isn't a takata defective one. Big difference is this has no leather missing from the wheel itself and also has some nice tri colour trim. I gave it a going over with the toothbrush before installing. before: after:
  10. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2202940113 Would look great with these wheels.. .....
  11. Those off sets look alittle high to me. My Mpars for example are 18x8 et 13 and 18x9.5 et 25. Also you need to make sure the center bore is 74.1 too. PS my Mpars are still for sale 😉
