    FS 2002 e10 parts NOS

    Sure is mate.
  2. I'd be more put off by the silent-auction-masquerading-as-a-classified-listing than the rust. Did the vendor go into that at all? I guess if you've been thirsting for a red 2.5 touring for ever then it could be worth the punt. I can absolutely see the appeal. @Young Thrash Driver is right, it is beautiful. Maybe easier and cheaper to make a solid car pretty though, and at least you know you get to drive it! Garage it for a couple of years and those wheels alone will be worth the asking price the way prices are going.

    Reasonably priced E30

    Absolutely love a clean prefacelift e30. https://www.trademe.co.nz/1697765736 This one has been taunting me from my watchlist for days. If I hadn't already gotten way too deep with mine...

    Sad E39

    Only thing I can think of is spiked in a pursuit, the driven on flat tyres until they tore off? Looks like it has been driven on those rims at least a bit. Have come off clean though...

    FS 2002 e10 parts NOS

    A couple of random treasures I had salted away that need to go as I slowly come to terms with never owning a 2002. Wellington based. NOS air cleaner housing. Comes with seal and bracket, all fixings/fastners. Slight marring of the paint on the top of the housing, but I imagine this is still an uncommon part to find new. To suit the later twin barrel solex carb. $250. Electronic ignition setup. Used, removed in working order from a 2002tii. Includes Crane XR700 unit, bosch coil, HT leads and distributor cap. Could be useful for other m10 setups. $100.

    Yeah it was compelling reading. I can't find the fb linked post either, but it is reproduced here.

    A very sad 2002Tii

    Yeah, I thought the same (with the proviso that I know nothing about anything). Given 30ish seems to be 'market' for the tiis I have seen go on trademe in the last couple of years, and they have been extremely tidy, there is not much to play with to stay in the envelope. Plus the incident and a re-cert in its history. Still. A roundie tii. Doesn't get any better. I wish the new owner an affordable and simple repair.

    A very sad 2002Tii

    Just over an hour left and already 11k - fun could be about to start. Have to wonder a) how much it would cost to get that straightened out, and b) what the agreed value was if the insurer decided it cheaper to write it off. I really hope it gets back on the road. As @E30 325i Rag-Top says, it looks a lovely car.

    How to remove strut nut without an impact

    Late to the party here, but is this what you need? Happy to post for you to use if so (realise it was probably more time sensitive than this would be useful for).
  11. Hey Jonny! Nice looking wee car, and great photo. More of that please!
  12. What a shame Milan! Hope you get a good result - GLWS.

    E39 or e38 comfort seats

    Ahh. The fabled contours! They sound wonderful, but rarely seen in the wild? Those sports seats are indeed wonderful. I am viewing this entirely as a temporary move. Partial, even, but I don't rate my chances of just getting a passenger seat. Yeah, saw these. Would probably be perfect (if I lived in Auckland).
