    1999 E38 740i Facelift

    Selling my weekender, 1999 BMW 740i Sedan, NZ New, 250,000 odd kms in Titanium Silver with Black Leather. Has had timing chains, guides etc done. Currently fitted with 650i Coupe wheels, but also comes with original 16" alloys and tyres. Reasonably tidy for age, the paint is a little faded on the roof and a few scratches here and there but it is tidy for a 17 year old car. Looking for $4,000 for it.

    4pots - N46 vs N43

    Both of those engines are rubbish.. the F20 turbo is pretty good. You will be forever chasing oil leaks. and they're gutless.

    E38 750i refresh/resto log.

    Are you gonna part it out? If so, are the rear bumper and boot struts any good?

    E38 rear bumper cover

    I'm after a rear bumper cover for an E38. Its a 99 Facelift, not sure if they changed with facelift or not. The car has PDC. Cheers

    Buying E90 questions (325/330/335)

    I sold E90's brand new and was a service advisor for BMW, so I have a fair bit of experience with these.... 325i's are slow and use just as much fuel as a 330i, 330i's are great in my opinion - 335i is even better but can cost more to run/maintain/buy. You won't find a manual E90 330i easily so I'd say you're gonna have to settle for an auto. Buy an M Sport to begin with, it won't be worth the cost to fit M sport kit and suspension - plus you wont have the sport seats. All of this would set you back at least 5-6k. Definitely get a warranty, the E90 is pretty reliable, however some of the 6 cylinder engines have had issues with hydraulic lifters and running camshafts - no rhyme or reason either as alot of the ones that had trouble were NZ New cars with full service history... The auto's again are pretty reliable, but can develop oil leaks from the plastic oil pan which warps over time due to heat - this should be covered by a good mechanical insurance policy. Good luck!

    530d Sedan E60

    Selling my 530d if anyone is after one. Awesome car, well looked after and has had swirl flaps deleted. Awesome power and economy! Will take $19k for a BS member. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=765730655

    BMW 2003 E65 760i...!

    760LI's are seriously cool... Nice spec over and above both E65 V8's I've had. So smooth and powerful!! not sure I'd like to pay the fuel bills though. I'd pay the money if the right one came along.

    E36 manual conversion - CHEAP

    Yeah, I only paid $750 for the car and the auto is fine. I'd pay $1200 if someone else was going to do the conversion!!

    E36 manual conversion - CHEAP

    After a CHEAP E36 manual conversion kit to suit 318is Sedan. All the kits on trade me seem very expensive considering these cars are now worth next to nothing. Cheers

    BMW Airbag Recall

    BMW Group NZ have not released the recall notice to dealers yet, as they haven't got the complete list of vehicles affected. As soon as this is released, the dealers will be notified, along with owners. As you can imagine, this isn't a 5 minute job.

    Swirl Flap Removal

    I've just ordered the kit from PMW in the UK to remove the swirl flaps from my E60 530d. The cost was just £49.84, so a cheap alternative to a cylinder head, turbo and possibly more. I'll do a how to guide when they arrive for anyone that is interested in doing it also, but from my experience it is well worth doing for peace of mind!
