  1. badge removal

    I soaked mine with desolve it for half hour first, then used fishing line which came with new badges to remove, then a heat gun and more desolve it to remove left over foam and adhesive. Clean and polish and good as new. You Tube vids showed all the above and caution required with heat gun. I also took heaps of pics before and took measurements to ensure correct location of new badges.
  2. Has anyone bought these? Know if they're legal in NZ? Any good? Cheers http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/exterior/auction-1392765918.htm

    Gee are that that rare? Think I saw another one on TradeMe a month or two ago (black?), but that's all I've seen. Very nice weekend toy you have there.

  5. E21, Resurrected

    Long live the E21, looks great.
  6. 545i Msport in CHC, $1 auction

    Two and half hours to go and just over 5k I would hope it would at least double, surely this a 11k plus vehicle. Think those rims look sharp on this, sure I have seen them on a couple of other e60's. Think they're these: http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/128 There's another down there with issues starting at 3k and buy now of 5k. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1340186597
  7. Would the N62 fit? http://www.manheim.co.nz/damaged-vehicles/5039946/2003-bmw-545i-sedan?referringPage=SearchResults You maybe interested in this regardless.
  8. What's worse than de-badged BMW

    I think incorrectly re badging and not doing anything about it is worse. An e39 and an e60 M5 for the price of one. The very rare 523i M5 LOL it's even on carjam that way. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1319154400.htm The 550i M5, you would think a car sales would know better. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1277147209.htm Don't think it's an M-sport badge upside down, reckon it's code for WannaCry. It started by accident in the electronics of a BMW, cos lets face it these cars all make us WannaCry at some stage.
  9. What'd you do to your BMW today?

    LOL it's disturbing I had actually seen that before, but I had forgotten it until now!! Cheers for the links, will contact Barry.
  10. What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Haha I don't know the group or song but do know your thoughts on clay barring, will definitely do it sometime. Does Barryn sell them? if so where? link? Cheers
  11. What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Yea they're 20's, I flick between changing to 18's and keeping, often. Had thought if I can find some style 135's and powder coat them gunmetal grey I would. Will see, love the current look but not the ride.
  12. What'd you do to your BMW today?

    So I finished my blackout de chrome thing. Looks ok I think. 50/50 on the grille, chrome vs gloss black, like the black but wonder if it makes it look tacky or cheap! Love the smoked out side indicators, they blend in and don't stand out like the clear ones, although the old ones were yellow and sun damaged. Black roundels look ok and quite like the black 545i. Nothing that can't be changed if I grow to dislike and return to factory if sold etc. Turtle wax tar and bug remover did a great job on bumper and mirrors and cleaned it with new foaming gun and microfibre mitts but splitting headache prevented me from even drying it let alone a polish of wax. Comes up alright with just a clean at the mo anyway. Edit: need to grow some balls and motivation to do the DIY headlight restoration and stone chip restoration also. Any tips for wheel cleaning, polishing, care etc
  13. It's nice aye, on the FaceBook site the owner offers to do a manual conversion with M5 parts.
