    X5... hmmm... thoughts anyone?

    Are they really that bad Glenn? I thought one with valve stem seals done would be ok and a safer option than the later ones?

    Any recommendations before I google? Getrag 260, still functions ok, just tired.

    Gear box rebuild Wgtn

    I’ll probably get him to do the spare lsd, which is up here, but the car is in Wgtn, in one piece. Labour out and in plus shipping would make it too pricey I think.

    Isn't that yellow one the reshelled 318is coupe?

    It was in fine form when it went past?! The rest should buff out.

    You remind me more and more of Ron. “I drove one in the 90s and it was terrible and they therefore all are”. And forever will be.

    Diff bushes (not big/strong enough esp on a turbo), rear suspension bushes, front brakes (undersized), rear tyres (just destroys them), interior is touch wood, perfect so far. All is forgiven on boost, from about 1200-5000rpm.

    From my experience, considerably less than an e36. Cooling system seems to work too.

    It looks like a non turbo 6, he should have relaxed, it still would have disappeared on a 3 litre Holden.

    M3 front lip e36

    What's the best place to get one of these? The lip that goes under the front bumper, like a mini splitter? Tried FCP, Ecs and turners (who wanted 7 times the item price for shipping), anything local or worth asking at BMW? Had a look on eBay too, prices are all over the show.

    M3AN E36 M3 PLOG (Project Log)

    If you look closely at the side here, I wouldn’t say that’s a great fit either.

    Reasonably priced E30

    Good nick and well priced compared to most thats for sure, but without a manual box, just seem so slow these days.

    Another e36 - My 328 Beater

    There’s a set in good condition for a sedan at Zebra in Manukau. Just need a clean, drivers seat is out of the car though, so beat the rain (real, not m).

    Try 6/7, sometimes 7/7.

    2001 318Ci

    Unless I’m wrong, it will then become a Wof feature.
