  1. Car is in Pukekohe if anyone wants to take a look at her..
  2. I had a lot of work done to her, new front shocks, lot of rear suspension work done, auto electrician sorted a lot of issues etc etc.. She was in a really sorry state when I bought her, apart from the engine she's pretty good now. Easy enough to drop another engine into her, even a LS and have a really cool cruiser. I would do the engine swap/conversion but my circumstances have changed and I'm off to work in Oz for a while , so don't need to start a project. She's a beautiful old girl who deserves to be saved.
  3. 1985 Mercedes W123 230 TE Station Wagon. 225, 000 miles, not kilometres AS IS WHERE IS. SPARES OR REPAIR. Gave this car to a garage to sort out a few jobs for a warrant, they did the jobs then managed to sieze the engine.. After a couple of weeks with oil down the bores etc they managed to free the engine. Unfortunately, they totalled destroyed the engine doing so... So it needs a replacement engine, Ive been talking to a guy who's got a good engine for $750. Apart from the engine issue she's got a few bits of bodywork to sort out, nothing structural, mainly around the windows and front scuttle.. This car owes me $3500, I'm not putting any more money into it. The price is $2500.

  6. Bridgestone Potenza Adrenaline Re003
  7. 235 45 17 For my E39 540 Msport.. Michelin Pilot Sport 3 Or Bridgestone Potenza Can get both for about $200 a tyre..
  8. I like the Pilot Sport 3.. M5 tyres..
  9. They look pretty good, you think they'll fit OK.?
  10. https://www.trademe.co.nz/2370584455 Wonder if these would fit...?
  11. WTB... Looking for some nice alloy wheels (and tyres) for the above vehicle.. Currently on the original M sport 17"..
  12. Looks like it's the torque converter..
  13. Had a proper full scan of the car. Now no faults recorded, however the problem is getting worse.. Blip the throttle on tickover and you hear a big gulp of air, misfire, then revs OK.. While I'm driving at a steady speed the revs keep dropping by about 200 rpm then it picks up again to the original rpms, after a few seconds the revs drop again.. If I'm accelerating this problem doesn't seem to show itself. It's now started to be a bit indecisive about gear selection, dropping a gear only to change back up almost immediately... I've had it in two garages, neither can find the fault... Do you guys have any ideas.??? Thanks.
