    Daily Driver opinions

    My dad borrowed my 328i coupe for a day (manual) and did well over 700kms on a tank without any effort, they are pretty economical in the country and not bad in town.

    The first-ever BMW X7.

    How much did they pay MB for the GL body, so they could stick that ridiculous grill on it?

    N52 starter - Sorted

    12.7v? Are you sure thats enough? Even a little bit off will result in no start. Isn’t 13.8 where you should be?

    Quick rant thread.

    In the last 3 weeks, I’ve watched someone run a stop sign in front of a cop car forcing them to emergency brake and another dipshit panic brake on the motorway before driving straight across the cross hatched median/exit ramp split in front of another cop car on the exit ramp, in both cases the response was nothing. i assume these are the millennial cops the older cops talk about who don’t like to get out of the car in case there’s a confrontation. I spotted someone sniffing around one of my neighbours places and called the cops, they said they would send someone out, but not a priority if they were just walking around. I pointed out he had 10 guns on site and over 2000 rounds of ammo in his gun safe, I had 3 cars and a helicopter within 2 min.

    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?

    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?

    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.
