    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    Fine line? I'd say a chasm would be more accurate.

    New record for E30 325is pricing?

    For 20k you could get an S85, installed.

    E30 330 Coupe

    Jabroni spec tyres on it.

    E60 550i Exhaust mod

    A bit pricey. I just went to my friendly pit stop and got two "sports" mufflers put in. Cost me a grand all up. Going to go get my secondary cats taken out as well.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    It's all peachy until you get to a corner. The handling ruins the car.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    The only car faster for the money was my old E55 😛

    That e60 is a bit of a deal. Unique colour combo.

    E39 M5 for 20k

    I agree it's around the right price. The other 30-40k cars are dreaming. Same as the 65k e61.

    Written off F90 M5

    Pretty much the same as the E39 weight. Tech has come a long way.

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

    Thanks for the feedback, will definitely consider for my stable. The random pads my cars came with are filthy bastards.

    Excellent interior colour, same as my 1 series. Nice overall car too, a little different to the run of the mill cars.

    Alignment shop in Auckland?

    Concur, the guys there are a good bunch. Haven't seen them in many years.
  13. OCD had a guy polish mine out. They came back almost 100% like new. Around $150 though. I'm sure theres specialists out there that do just headlights.

    How are you finding the HPS pads? I need to sort pads on all my cars. It's going to be an expensive exercise as it would be a shame to not replace the disks at the same time :S

    What car to upgrade to from 540i?

    I was keen on an isf for a while and then I sat in one. I didn't need to drive it, blergh.

    What car to upgrade to from 540i?

    Been there done that. The E55 is probably the fastest car you can buy for the money. I upgraded mine with headers, pulley and tune and it was properly crazy. Unfortunately, the handling is so bad that it compromises the whole driving experience, especially in NZ where the enjoyable roads are bumpy & twisty. It's worse than "not fun in the corners" it's totally disappointing. I now have an E60 M5, the handling of which is light years ahead. As a daily the E55 is better than the E60 M5, but then all the other cars on the list are better anyway. Petrol and servicing are still expensive too.

    Don't write off the large BMs handling. I reckon they could comfortably take an E39 in the handling dept, I know my F11 can. M5 F10 is a super capable all round car. Diesel is for those that can't afford pleasure.

    What car to upgrade to from 540i?

    Don't go with the E60 M5, or E55. Both are very old now for a car in the 40k range and wouldn't feel special enough for the $$$. I have owned both, both are very fast though. I would look at: c8 s6 Jaguar XFR W212 E63 f10 550i Possibly in that order.. The 550i can be had for cheap while the others are closer to the 50k mark. Or if you are a total wildcard, go with a Maserati Quattroporte. I'm counting down the time til I can grab a Maserati GT.

    Fair enough, I usually end up paying a guy for most of my stuff as well. No shame there.

    The seals on my M5 were the same front and rear. I ended up doing it myself, it was surprisingly easy. The hardest part was getting rid of the residue from the old seals which took about an hour. Install took about 5 mins.

    X315 XJL Jag 5.0

    That interior is superb. Black with dark wood is a great combo. Nice!

    heaps of fun for 15k!

    No denying this is a fun car to drive. It's just that the M135i is a decent amount faster/newer for a few grand more. Either choice would be good. I wish my 130i was manual, but oh well.

    My F12 650i Vert

    Nice car! Grab us a pic further out, it's hard to gauge what the big BMs look like from up close.

    You do for $25k, which is a pretty sharp price for what you get I reckon: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1590217674.htm?rsqid=b0fa5baf82c4463cb77bb23d749b0563

    Yay, my post got deleted, I'm a super star!
