  1. $7000 with borbet type A wheels. Need to make space
  2. Took the bumpers off both e34s for a respray & put a stock bumper on in place of the ACS & actually prefer the front clearance. Probably won't have to go up driveways and speed humps on such an angle. The auto actually looks alright with no bumpers, last time my panel beater tried to flick his own white in rather than using the factory colour like i asked him to lol
  3. They are type A et20 16x7.5 square
  4. Ah I see because a while back I had the s420el in the 5 speed and it did seem better on fuel. The main reason I got the 600sel is because the trans people were quoting my friend 5k to fix the trans. When I fixed it for less than 200 in parts he was so happy he gave the car to me plus he had grown out of it. He believes all the road tests at the time showed it was by far the best sedan in the world otherwise he would have brought the Rolls. I do have to say the Merc does really eat the road & hold up well over time. He believes in time the car will be quite sought after
  5. Fair comments, is that 11\100km on the open road? I feel my 600sel uses way too much fuel that it remains parked up but am not allowed to sell it as it was a gift, not sure it would be worth much with around 380km on the clock though?
  6. It's getting me 600km to a tank combined driving but I do drive up to Te Anau on the open road a bit. When around town it's definitely using a lot less than my automatic 535i not as good as Honda accord though lol
  7. Thanks it will be a great car for someone. Would love to keep as a daily as it's surprising good on gas
  8. Selling as I have 5 cars atm & don't get a chance to drive them. 1990 built 89 NZ new BMW in alpine white with about 270km but will check exact. ACS body kit, suspension kit, strut bar, short shift, momo steering wheel, black leather m-tech electronically adjustable seats. Really good condition for age. Front bumper will be repaired by panel beaters & pained before sale as it has a few cracks, roof lining is sagging a little but besides that nothing to note besides air con needs gassed, heater fan is a bit noisy but still works. Mechanically excellent condition. Has aftermarket exhaust system, looks to be ACS also. Fully refurbished bbs rs 005 & 006 with new Bridgestone Turanza tyres. Done stuff all kms on tyre & wheel combo. Can offer without bbs & with borbet type a and kumho tyres that have also done stuff all km for less. Been through a service of all the correct fluids. Has recent reg & wof. Will try get mate around to do the air con gas. Will throw in Jim Conforti performance chip worth 250usd offers about a 43hp gain or something Want 10.5k for car with bbs 9k with borbet wheels Bring your own wheels 8k firm I think the last NZ new hd12 I saw for sale on trademe was a black one in Christchurch with similar kms with m-tech body kit for about 8k around 5 years ago? Can only imagine car will appreciate like m-tech e30s, perhaps already has. It's what is owes me so yea
  9. Yes everything is cast into the back of the faces. They are 18x8.5 et15 front & 18x9.5 et22 rear they can fit e39 also but I am using them with ACS hub locating rings (orange) I have the blue rings for e39 also.
  10. What style, are they type 2?
  11. https://m.ebay.com/itm/4PCS-70MM-Wheel-Center-Hub-Caps-Emblem-Badge-Decal-Stickers-for-BBS-Golden-Black-/112518572706 There is usually more than one person selling & offering different colours. When I ordered I got 20 I think but used 2 sets in place of old BMW ones on a few sets of 15" basket weaves & also on rs
  12. I should have mentioned the stickers are solid & about 3mm thick mine are still holding up good after two years lol
  13. Urethane on the inside. Otherwise genuine is the way to go. You could try this guy to see if he has spares Paul Ehrlich breytonm20@yahoo.com
  14. https://m.ebay.com/itm/4PCS-70MM-Wheel-Center-Hub-Caps-Emblem-Badge-Decal-Stickers-for-BBS-Golden-Black-/112518572706 I used these in silver. There were already rubber rings/spacers in my hex nuts then just stuck these on top they are lighter than the heavy bbs ones and cheaper to replace, then you don't have to worry about 64mm inside fitment. Not sure it will work on the wheels you are talking about with a home made spacer with glue though. Kind of seems budget but thats how the genuine BMW emblems were fitted before I replaced them with bbs so didn't even look into getting genuine caps
  15. Sure, finally got some lastnight
