  1. That’s so rough. He always came across as such a nice guy and his car was always so mint. I had a weird feeling about his name when it was released, sorry to see it was right. Sincere condolences to all of his family.

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    I'm currently running at 18l/100km for the trip above, I just want to know if it will be the same or worse to go slower..

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    Can anyone give me a truly accurate steer on V8 fuel consumption in truly urban driving? For example, I have a 9km commute populated with speed bumps and traffic lights galore with an average speed of about 26km/h. Don't tell me a diesel is better.

    Quick Questions

    Question: Are the water pump, thermostat and radiator common across M52bxx motors? Quick answer before I try and decode Realoem/bmwetk. Finally thinking about my touring.

    SPOTTED! The official thread

    A 2009 Alpina B7, Nz new apparently. And for sale? Wheels looked too big and ride height too high. Looked like a roller skate.

    Early bluetooth

    Interesting. I had an ‘04 AMG with Bt and that flatly refused to connect to an iPhone 4s.

    Yes. 6V92?
  8. 'E53 with Bluetooth and phone prep, will that work on a modern phone, eg, iPhone 7? Or is it a lot of faffing about?
  9. Agree, Daytona is my favourite, but I’d go that blue over silver or black.
  10. There was a tidy 3.0 ‘vert on TM recently. Nz new, 140kms (from memory) and had an asking of $15k. I thought that was cheap.

    E32 750i parts at Pickapart

    It comes back as an e28, but it is clearly a 750, makes you wonder about a chip shop in its past.....

    WTB: S50 starter

    Geez, this really is the car that keeps giving isn’t it? Hope it settles down soon.

    BMW M5 Alpina B10 V8 1999

    That's quite some appreciation considering I nearly imported one for $11,700 landed about 10 years ago with 80km on the clock.

    Grey Thunder - 1990 e30 316i

    I was wondering. Our e30 has a great horn, as does the 36. Picka part?

    They were and had a great sounding motor too.
