    Project 332i - E46 M3 Sedan

    Awesome James. The fun way of doing an M3 The electrical side of it is the most fun too!

    2005 E46 M3 CS

    I'd request some engine oil to do a test with at least, I think any high revving M car should have the oil checked for wear metal counts if you want to avoid surprises :p

    It's very nice but is it $38k nice?..

    Those decals must add at least 5k though.

    New member intro E92 M3

    Very nice! I really consider bearing service part of long term maintenance on these M cars, like doing a clutch. Not an often thing but required eventually!
  6. Oh no, leak stop :p

    2005 Z4 thoughts

    At least take one for a test drive. I found the ride to be too crunchy and the interior a bit low rent in quality. Better off with a 3 series convertible.

    Illegal to fit normal tyres after run-flat??

    With that kind of lack of knowledge, it makes me wonder if they know how to put on and balance tyres correctly!

    M TOY M3

    I quite like both wheels sets. I just wonder what the E92 rims would look like with the CSL colour. Hmmm

    These had bearing issues, since when??

    M TOY M3

    I don't think there's an E46 M3 in town that has so much owner devoted attention :p

    3 series crash tests E21-F30

    Would be good to see the older cars do a 25% overlap like the new cars need to pass. Of course that crash type is the most likely in the real world, ie on the open road. Most cars do when the whole front is making an even impact, best case scenario, but totally unrealistic in most crashes.

    Savage Geese M5 E60

    I quite like his videos. That M5 seems a bit riced up though, roof thing, black bits, crappy exhaust heat wrap... I don't think they suit white either, makes them seem like a cheaper car than they are.

    Getting the first bmw

    If your idea of a BMW is a 116i and x1 you should also consider a Toyota Corolla and Rav4, they will do the same thing but be much more reliable over the years.

    Low mileage E39 M5

    Not many cars to choose from so getting one in decent condition would be the key over mileage Registered NZ cars totals 51 1999 - 15 2000 - 10 2001 - 12 2002 - 9 2003 - 5

    Thoughts on the E87?

    I heard there is good potential if you run an S65 in one too. Economical on the highway and has good resale value.

    728i (M30) with 4-speed manual

    But you have the skills to save it. Space, time and desire is probably another matter haha

    728i (M30) with 4-speed manual

    Too far gone by the looks of it.

    Thoughts on the E87?

    Original E87 is quite a nice handsome little car, basically a 3 series hatch back. Bit cheaper with the interior materials as its a entry type BMW but very nice to drive if you get a smooth 6 cylinder model. I wouldn't bother with the 4 cylinders as you may as well get a Corrolla, Mazda 3 etc if fuel economy is high on the list. The sixes aren't that uneconomical anyway, just depends how you drive.

    Couple of Rides spotted recently :-)

    I wouldn't say I'm taking it seriously, It just seems weird to me you hate a car model so much you have to spend $1000 on a vanity plate to show your disdain for such, and had to spend money to do so. Another plate I saw was 'F VTEC' on a E30 BMW - to me it's bizarre some person needs to have a plate showing their disapproval of a particular valve system.
