    WTB Engine crane/hoist or recommendations

    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?
  5. 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.
