  1. 203,000 KM Finally got the rubber on the rims... OEM Msport style 66 wheels courtesy of @oldskool New tires: Potenza RE003 235/45/R17 Front and S001s 255/40/R17 on the rear. New Hella fog bulbs to match the now whiter headlights. New oil level sensor Oil change + filter New OEM window washer lines and pump....I never new how crucial window washer jets were until I didn't have them!
  2. Got my MAF back from BAVREST in the states, looks as good as new. Hasn't made a huge difference as delving a little deeper I think it's my C191 plug that's causing me problems.
  3. Little update. Got new headlights, decided I wanted it to look more modern so got some LED's Before: After A smoke test revealed a failed grommet in the back of the intake manifold, hopefully that is the reason it stalls when returning to idle. A scan revealed the airbag module is faulty along with the oil level sensor. Parts are on there way... Got an OEM tow bar complete with towing module from Ray. It's in, just need to extend the loom to make it to the LCM.
  4. Hi Rob, I sent it here: @skidz said somewhere in Nelson could have done it also.....bit closer ;-)
  5. Yeah still got the sub in the boot. Yeah I love it, just need to iron out a few gremlins...
  6. Cool, glad its still in the bimmersport family. oh man......the receipts look like this thing has bleed people dry.
  7. No worries, I know how hard it is to get something posted, especially wheels....not as easy as an envelope! Thanks, can't wait to get them on.
  8. Thanks, yeah it's super worn! good spotting. I agree, anthracite headlining option is good.
  9. I recently purchased @Aphexic's E39 540i. Overall it's in pretty good condition, with a tonne of service history dating back to 2009. This thing has had some money spent on it over the years. The car has just ticked over 200,000 km's. Here's some photos of it in it's new home. Things I'm intending to do as time and money allows: OEM Msport style 66 wheels (hurry up and post them @oldskool ;-) ) New tires: Potenza RE003 235/45/R17 Front and RE050A 255/40/R17 on the rear. Bulbs: Angel eye bulbs and H7 low beam bulbs Thermostat and coolant. Has had cooling system overhaul at 180,000 but thermostat seems to be all over the shop. Chain guides and timing chain + waterpump. Thrust arm bushings - has a strong vibration around 90+ km/h MAF - randomly when stopping at an intersection or lights it stalls and today it was hunting like it had a vacuume leak but then later on it idles perfectly. Tow bar Drivers door seal new water jet hoses
  10. Unfortunately / fortunately it was more of a sprint home as I had to work the next day at 7AM. I left Glenfield around 8:30PM and got home to Wellington about 3:30AM @325_driver
  11. anyone have one from a previous purchase they no longer need? Cheers, A.
  12. Is the towbar OEM or other?
  13. Yeah...kinda hard to justify two sedans.....but the 540i will tow the boat 😜.....once I get a tow bar for it.....
  14. I got it. It's now in Wellington 😎 The drive down was worth the purchase price alone. Now......let's see how long the chain guides last 😬 Also anyone selling a set of style 65 or 66 rims? Holla, A.
  15. Thanks for the replys. Found this old thread that would be the ideal setup @hybrid:
