    Group buy, E30 sump guard

    Wondering if there was any update on this or if anyone had decided to fab their own? Had a close shave recently...

    E36 '96+ M3 suspension components (E30 5 lug swap)

    So the SRS setup isn't a one stop shop @WYZEUP? Damn, that's disappointing. These parts are obviously rare and there's 10+ people all hawking them by the looks 😂 4 lug it may have to be.

    E36 '96+ M3 suspension components (E30 5 lug swap)

    Yea to be honest I just want to have my car certified before Christmas so it looks like I'll have to deal with 4x100. I'm unsure on those SRS concept lollipops and I'm unsure how the machined hubs would go with our cert process. Definitely a compromise on brakes and wheel choice but 🤷‍♂️.

    I'm in your boat Rob! This thread has given me the motivation to finally start pushing mine through the dreaded cert process. Keep the posts coming!
  6. Yea initially. Was sent a fixed priced offer today from the seller.
  7. Just received a fixed price offer from the seller for this at the winning bid price. The conspirator in me thinks of a "mate bidding up" gone wrong? Alternatively the winner could have also pulled out. Either way, I wouldn't be willing to spend $2k on this.
  8. Long shot but thought I'd try here. The state of decent 4 lug wheels available for my E30 over the past year in NZ has driven me to consider a 5 lug swap. I'm after the front struts, LCAs and spindles from an obd2 E36 M3. Cheers!

    Fortunately the diagnosis was correct! Finally got around to changing my mates starter. Started straight away. Thanks everyone for your help.

    As long as periodic servicings stated by Autosure are caries out by a MTA assured mechanic.

    For me with my E91? Yes. But totally depends on each person. I purchased the 3 year warranty because I wasn't familiar with anything newer than an E46 at the time or repair costs if a motor/gearbox was to implode. I'm the first owner since it's import from Japan and I didn't have a clue on the reliability of the N52N or its gearbox. Older models I don't bother because their engines etc are a dime a dozen (mostly) on TM or a wreckers. Since my ownership I've had problems with misfires (replaced coils & plugs), valve cover gasket due to leaks, various suspension components due to noise and idler pulleys as they are notorious for sending N52's to an early grave. Yes I could have given Autosure a call, but wasn't worth the excess.

    They're not going to give you the stamp if you do the servicing unfortunately. As far as Autosure is concerned they're after someone reliable to protect their risk. Needs to be MTA assured. If you look through the Autosure leaflet it will explain what needs servicing when and by who.

    BMW service

    I typically do all the maintenence on my BMWs. For a couple of reasons a) gives me a chance to check the condition of other components b) cheaper c) fun and interesting if all goes to plan d) I know the work is actually being carried out aka I don't trust alot of mechanics. I also have Autosure Insurance on our newer wagon, so had to succumb to taking it in for a service to stamp the book. Found it quite pricey for the actual work being carried out and then when I got it home I found the lid of the air box not installed. Well known and recommended BMW servicing establishment too. Have been using FCP Euro to order parts. Have a good, cheap range and parts typically arrive within a week. Obviously dependent on your situation/space I'd recommend investing in some tools and DIY if the budget is tight. Find a professional on YouTube and seek advice on jobs from the wealth of knowledge on forums 👍

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Replaced the coils, spark plugs, coil sleeves, valve cover gasket (along with the valvetronic motor, sensor and SAP plate seals) on my N52. Definitely was not a fun job at all, but I guess pretty satisfying at the finish line.
