  1. Agent75, the link for the radiator above is the same as mine. It seems to do a good job. Running water wetter and bmw blue coolant (hasn't seen a sustained thrashing around a track yet so time will tell). Andy do you know what the story is with the temp gauge? I had a heart attack when I first drove my E30 M52 as the needle skyrocketed towards the red. The needle bounces around and doesn't seem to reflect the actual temp. I've used a trustworthy Fluke Infrared Thermometer (accuracy is +/-1%) and temp measured ~90°c (88° thermostat). Also since the fan only runs intermittently on warm days (88° switch).
  2. Nope not yet.

  4. Yip left the engine 100% and am more than happy with it. Completely night and day in comparison to my M40B16 time bomb. I don't think you'd be able to get this DME to run a factory M52. I could be wrong. Best bet is to get a Siemens Ms41.0 and either get an EWSII module + transponder + key set (headache), or have the ews deleted from the DME.
  5. For the DME to run? Nothing. It doesn't have ews so it's good to go in a m50. I got it to do a obd1 + m50 manifold conversion on my M52 e30 but decided against.
  6. Yip same design but I'm sure it was bigger. I'll have to measure it.
  7. I used the radiator from a M42 because I didn't have the mounts for the ext water res plus I liked the cleanliness of the incorporate res. Got the biggest electric fan that would fit (16" from memory?) and deleted the viscous fan. People have retrofitted the M52B28 exhaust to fit. I mocked mine up and it seemed to follow the tunnel alright but would hang low and look abit off. It does contact the subframe and RHS lollipop mount. After some research I opted for 2-1 then 2.5" all the way through to a resonater then rear muffler. As it sits now, the exhaust isn't the lowest part of the car. If you're in akl you can pop in for a look at my setup.
  8. Make a project of it and restore it! Or if you decide to part out I'd be keen on the rear disk setup etc. Good luck either way.

  11. Awesome cheers for all the advice. I have a little more confidence now after reading your post NZ00Z3 but my main concern now is the fact that the car has been collected by the private buyer. I don't think I have a leg to stand on if someone apparently now has the car. Gutted but I'll follow through with the above advice. BTW NZ00Z3, going by your user name do you happen to be AF? think I might have seen your blue z3 this morning. Tidy number.
  12. Cheers for that Gabe. Definitely an auction. So basically I probably won't see the car again . I guess it's not a biggie but as you know, the feeling of winning an auction for a good price + the car you want is a good feeling. Then to be told "too late" is a tad frustrating.
  13. Hey team, thought this would be a good place to ask a question, as I'm sure there are a couple trademe pros on here. If I were to win an auction on a vehicle (reserve met, all kosher) but the owner decides they want to sell it to someone else, do I have a leg to stand on? Normally I wouldn't care and I'd just carry on the hunt for another car, but... This one ticks all the boxs and I've been looking for a year! Any comments/opinions/facts appreciated.
  14. Did you end up winning the auction?
  15. I've messaged you.
