    1999 E39 540i M sport - 115k - immaculate

    Hi Ray, yeah they just went. I was surprised too. The guides broke and they replaced the whole lot. Ive got the parts list for what they changed. Whilst they were doing it I got rebuilt vanos gears with the upgraded seals brought in from the states. Figured that whilst the engine was pulled apart to that extent that they should be done too to save on labour costs further down the line.
  2. Hi guys, im putting the feelers out to see if there might be any interest in my E39 540i Motorsport. I bought it from a guy in Christchurch who loved and cared for it to the enth degree and spent thousands keeping it in top nick over the years he had it. I bought it from him with 99k on the clock January 2017. It now has 116k. The PPI from Christchurch BMW came back as the best example of an E39 they had seen in years. Ive recently spent 9k on new guides, chains, vanos gears with upgraded Besian Seals, oil pump etc etc (full parts list on request) all done at Winger BMW here in Wellington. Car will come with a 2 year Autosure Mechanical warranty. The car is beautiful, powerful and immaculate apart from a couple of scuffs under the front bumper. Its an M-sport but was ordered with non M-sport bumpers from BMW Japan (not sure why). Everything is stock, no modifications and everything works. The reason for selling is that i could well be taking a job in the states and would need to offload this fairly quickly. I should know in the next 2 months. If it doesn't get the price i want It'll be coming stateside with me so no low ballers. Ideally looking for 8-9k NZD

    Mechanical warranties for privately sold cars?

    Has anyone else used or dealt with autolife.co.nz before?
  13. Hi people, im trying to get some information around buying a mechanical warranty for a car that i intend to buy privately? Ive emailed Motor Plus and they said their warranties can only be bought through a dealership when buying a car from said dealership. Does anyone know if there are companies who will sell a policy to a private purchaser? Thanks in advance!
