    My 1997 318 MS 2.8L TI M52B28

    I'm building a 328ti (on a budget) and with the clutch slave recently exploding inside the bell housing, necessitating the engine out again - a turn key one is tempting lol! You should get it listed on trademe - get a lot more eyes on it. Cheers

    Where do people buy their tyres? (Wellington)

    Tyres done last weekend at Beaurepairs. Buy one get one half price, which was only a tad less than the discounted quote they originally gave me (saved a couple of extra bucks and they discounted the wheel alignment). The PS4's have transformed the car! For some reason Tony's said they wouldn't have PS4 in stock until Feb next year.

    Your old tyres or the new tyres you fitted yourself were out of balance?!? Of course your old tyres will be out of balance if they are worn. 25g is nothing.

    And limited choice in staggered sizing

    I reviewed a Tool Chief one on youtube. I've used it about half a dozen times and finding it really good. Search Blackie BMW Motorwerks. Picked it up in Lower Hutt, but sure they have an Auckland store.

    Beaurepairs is quoting 1400 for Michelin Pilots. Seems the best deal I found so far, as i believe they are very good?
  9. Starting a sister thread for the windy city. I need 4 new tyres and an alignment for my '06 130i. The sizes from memory are 215/40-18 and 245/35-18. I want to ditch the run flats and switch to a regular tyre. Quotes so far from Tony's seem to be around $1,400 for Potenza s001. Does anyone know of any options of places where I might be able to come in under a grand? Thanks

    Grand Tour Season 2

    I downloaded the first series of the grand tour. It was ok, but I wouldn't rave about it - certainly not worth paying for.
