    My new SS Commodore... in a sharp german suit

    @NZ BMW most offers vary by region, but some are available nationally to members as is the case with the MBI deal. Please note the Autosure offer is through a particular dealer, can be attached to vehicles you already own but a vehicle condition inspection will be required ; and pre-existing issues won't be covered (which seems fair!).

    This was the first thing that needed to be done on my M5 … a droopy bonnet sucks!

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    Still waiting on parts for the transmission - using the E60 M5 as daily driver but that's in at Winger today for O2 sensor and thermostat replacement to deal with stalls occurring when idling. Here's the summary of what Zane found: BMW X5 V8 Reg JHC777 236744 KMs Transmission fault : leaking oil from front of transmission. Remove exhaust , covers, drive shaft, part of suspension to enable removal of transmission. Disassemble transmission clean & check. Convertor lockup lining has broken up causing damage to front pump housing, gears & convertor neck. Clutch packs showing signs of burning. Bearings through hardening. Ouch! Total cost to me for rebuild after Autosure max claim on old high km vehicle = ~$4500 Just saw this 4.8is come up for sale not far away... tempting (I think? ) https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1836240753

    New to the Club with F10 M5

    Welcome Stephen - time to go for a classic! Both of these will be relatively rare - especially the E28 so I expect patience will be required. Hope you've had a blast with the F10 - I certainly enjoy my E60
  5. Welcome back Mike 40D must nice - lot of oomph for low MPG!

    Quite possibly - but in this case I need to work with the MBI approach, and they don't like to (or can't?) roll the dice with used parts.
