    E9X Jap interiors

    What model, all the 335s seem to be leather?
  2. Yeah I don't think the uplift from 335i to M3 would be worth the extra coin, I wouldn't call it proper special relative to the 335i...

    Strange, almost every e9x I have seen is leather. Hardly seen any cloth.

    Think of things that would not affect the mechanical operation of the car. You could actually do anything you want if you do it right.

    BMW service

    Ugh. Doing the wiper blades yourself isn't going to touch your warranty. Same with the micro filter. $150 for two bits of rubber and two minutes labour is just stupid.

    Wiper blade and micro filter cost is retarded, that's the sort of sh*t that gives european cars a bad name. Buy the blades and microfilter overseas and fit them yourself. The rest isn't too bad.

    Super tidy Audi S8

    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Ah I should have said it was the suspension air bag It went pop and gangster low. Chinese replacements are super cheap, but it would seem the quality is questionable.
  9. Nope, by my workinng it's about 1:1 at 10L/100km, petrol vs diesel when diesel includes RUC. $2.25 for petrol, $1.55 for diesel. If your diesel gets 2L/100km better then diesel is better by between 5-15% Diesel is suited to 2+ Tonne SUVs where petrol use would be over 15L/100km, a diesel can get 10 or under.
  10. N55 is as new as the N57 Our N55 535i can get down to 7L/100km on the open road and averages about 10. Agree the N57 is a little gruntier though. Not going to be a huge cost difference once RUC is added. Depending on budget the F30 328i or F10 528i with the 2.0 turbo could be an option, far newer cars than the E90, and economical. Have seen both at $20k and a few under.

    Chinese replacement air bag in the 535i blew up on the way home today. You get what you pay for I guess. I put the best of the two old ones back in to get it back on the road. Now I don't trust the other bag that is in there... The only upside is I am getting pretty fast at swapping out the bags. Battery in my M5 is also toast. Replacing sh*t for no gain is such a drag. Must be time for a Toyota or something.

    My 130i MSport 2008

    130i in urban is about 11.5L/100km. My M5 is about 18-19L on the same route. Overall it's about 9-12L/100km, which is worse than my 535i touring which gets 7-11L/100km. I'd go old 130i or newer 116i, maybe even a Nissan Leaf. Still tempted to sell my 130i. $30 grand on a povo BMW isn't an attractive idea to me. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1865293537.htm?rsqid=8ef907f50ac34f89bf04796781f19a4d

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

    How was the Auto Glym de-stinker? Noticeably less stinky? I am about to change all my cleaning product to Auto Glym after having decent success with their Ultra Deep Shine polish/wax.
