    Christchurch 2006 BMW 540i new owner

    Welcome Chris - silver E60 with Style 123s is a handsome vehicle If you have only one key recommend you pick up another and make your existing one a spare. Cost a few $$ but not as bad as some others ... They certainly make it a PITA to replace the battery!! 😕

    Go Large, no - go XL!!!

    From the WTH? department ... full marks for accessorizing 🤔, but the effort seems a tad misguided. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=1676761985 '08 LCI E60 523i that someone has gone to a lot of effort to make it look like an M5 ... "This is a fantastic unit, Leather interior, alarm, Two way hard wired camera, Hard wired radar detector, Great condition, XL wide and long body. one of a kind. Never to be repeated mags. Quad exhaust. cruise control, Electric seats, electric steering wheel adjustment....totally loaded.... "

    Heh - my brother Tony does all the ads for Mitsi - including the neat Huntaway one. Despite (or because of) the value-focuse ads, Mitsubishi NZ outperforms relative to other markets.

    ABS module repairs in Auckland

    Update - got the X5 back today with a brand new Bosch OEM control module installed via Autosure MBI. Apparently one of the relays was kaput and they can't be replaced/re-soldered individually. Arnie at Driscolls said the BMW original module cost $1800 or so!!

    Damaged my E60 530d

    @Worksie in regards to your repair costs, did you get a MBI with your E60? That can make a huge difference to your ownership costs ... (but you can still spend plenty, just a lot less ) https://www.mtf.co.nz/mtf-products.html#mechanicalBreakdownInsurance Jono is the man to talk to: Jono White 027 224 4295 jono.white@mtf.co.nz Sorry to hear about the incident with the dog very bad luck for all involved.

    E28 1987 M535i e28 on behalf

    Hmmm yes interested as E28 m535i is top of my classic list - but i wasn't planning on commencing a project! Does it have all 4 of the BBS or is one missing.....? is there mould in the interior? Might give you a shout.

    E39 530i for $15k !

    It is a very nice example but yep he needs to halve the price! +pics for posterity
  25. Hey Nick - lots of good advice from Kyu and I think you're approaching this the right way. I think people tend to fall into 3-series or 5-series 'types' and you'll have a preference one way or the other - especially after some test drives. PPI + Autosure = good plan.
