    Un-Tuning a 335ci

    I too think the premium is for the mileage + NZ new. Have emailed the owner; apart from regular servicing, only the ABS module has been replaced. The tune was installed shortly after he got it. He bought it with just under 8kms and has done around 22kms with the tune issue free (apart from ABS). With regard to the missing iDrive - that is the ideal ‘option’ in my opinion

    I’d tend to agree with the thrashing point. A shame really, because it is a stunning car. Yeah I noticed the odometer decrease too. The classic WOF typo is annoyingly common I’ve found

    Un-Tuning a 335ci

    Yeah, I agree. Definitely wouldn't pay that much for it. Although, it is the perfect spec in my opinion. It will be a long-term car. Last car she bought is the SLK in my profile picture; bought when only 3 or 4 years old and still driving it daily.

    Yep that's it. Thoughts?

    Cheers for that. I have emailed the guy, but it seems to be a very sorted car. Ticks all the boxes. It's only got 30km
  6. Hi all, A family member of mine is looking at buying a 335ci. It has a JB4 tune on it currently, which she isn't overly interested in. Have been in a stock one before and it is plenty fast. Just wondering if anyone knows about the uninstallation process? And if there are any potential consequences of having a car that was once tuned? Would one be better off to go for a car that hasn't been tuned? I have zero knowledge when it comes to tuning so any advice is appreciated. Cheers

    Unusual F80

    Isn't that the colour that comes on a lot of the M3/4 CS's? I think it suits the shape really well

    Unusual F80

    I think it's because it's the Merino leather and not the standard leatherette? Also, it's brand new so is still nice and matte

    Where do people buy their tyres? (Wellington)

    How much did they cost you if you don't mind me asking? Thinking about getting a set of those for my E39 530i
  11. Hi there, Currently looking at options for adding an aux functionality to my 2001 E39 and the GROM units have caught my attention. I want to keep the stock head unit but am getting tired of listening to the same CDs/radio. I know to add an aux function to the standard setup requires a head unit with a build date post 09/2002, and my car being a 2001 won't have the right one. Has anyone had any experience with these GROM units? Are they compatible with a pre 09/2002 head unit? The GROM website seems to think they work with all model years, and I have emailed them to check this to which they confirmed. Also with installation, does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Here's a link to what I'm looking at: https://gromaudio.com/store/aux1_adapters/bmw_mini_98-05_auxiliary_adapter_kit_-_behind_the_radio.html Any advice is greatly appreciated. Cheers

    335i E91 “stuttering “ at 2000 rpm

    Have heard good things about Auto 38, Page European and of course Winger in Wellington. Haven't been to any of them personally, yet
  13. Just out of curiosity, did you get a PPI before you bought the car?

    Mercedes Specialist Lower North Island?

    Cheers for that, will look into him
  15. My grandmother has a 1998 SLK230 (R170), in my profile pic, with a few jobs that need doing. Issue with the hydraulics for the folding roof, remote locking and a few other bits and bobs that probably require a Merc specialist. Our family mechanic is more of a BMW man and although he'd give these things a go, we think it's probably best if we go to someone (that isn't the dealer) who knows these things. She's in Whanganui, but anyone from here to Wellington will be fine. Cheers for any recommendations
