    FS: 1986 318i E30 Coupe

    Hi Guys, My brother is selling his 1986 318i E30 Coupe pre facelift, factory manual with sunroof. Really nice unmodified example. Trademe link below. 1986 BMW 318i E30 Coupe Zinnoberrot (Red) M10B18 Engine Factory 5-Speed Manual (With Short shift kit) BMW Bottle Top Wheels Slidetilt Sunroof E30 iS front lip E30 rear spoiler MOMO Prototipo steering wheel and Boss Kit CA TUNED Gear knob JVC Headunit https://www.mdecoder.com/decode/0735291 This E30 was manufactured on 04/11/1985 and sold new in Japan in 1986. It was then exported to NZ around 1995. The car drives very well, engine runs smooth, gearbox is tight and the car feels very planted on the road. The car has recently had some work done at P & S Auto in East Tamaki. - Power steering rack and oil replaced. - Gearbox oil replaced with Penrite Pro Gear 75W90. - Front bottom control arms replaced. - Fuel pump replaced. - Rear axles and CV boots replaced. - Accelerator pedal bushes replaced. Cons. Body is starting to show its age a little. Typical E30 dash cracking. Odometer stopped working around 2013 (before my ownership) it has only been a weekend driver in my ownership so never got around to addressing it. $6200 ONO Contact: Logan 022 1843930 Overall good condition car, very hard to come by and desirable being a pre-facelift factory manual coupe. https://www.trademe.co.nz/2154595294

    Alpina mouth and no trousers

    https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1838877275.htm?rsqid=78379e3eea794a588b2e7ea4f1045ebb I spend six months offshore and the E30 market goes this crazy? This HAS to be a pisstake.

    E46 transmission issue

    Hi there, I’m new on this forum. I have a 318i 2002. I’m having a issue in automatic transmission. When I start to drive the car after a cold start, rpm suddenly goes bit higher. Then the transmission error occurs and shifts are becoming hard. Can feel them really hard. However, once I stop the engine and restart the car, this error and hard shifts go away. Car would shift as normally. Does anyone have idea on what could be the issue? Could it be a bad MAF? No check engine light so far. And I did change the transmission fluid and filter as well. But still issue is there. Thanks in advance.
  4. Genuine Momo steering wheel boss kit for late type E28 and E30s. Should also fit E34, possible E36 etc as to my knowledge the steering wheels interchange (though this could be a case like my diff so do your own research). Model number 2006. $80. Pickup from Panmure or can post for $10 (non rural).
  5. Hello! My name is Saulo, I had moved from Brazil to Auckland almost two years ago, and in this great land, I bought my first BMW. It is a 318i (1999, E46). Really love my ride, but like all 20-years old cars, it needs some care often. That's why I've joined this forum!

    WTB: E36 M42B18 Engine Package

    Hey all, Wanting to purchase an E36 M42B18 Engine Package, preferably with all electrics and ancillaries, I could also be interested in an M44B19 engine package also but would prefer a complete M42B18. Ideally wanting to spend no more than $450 on a low mileage engine (with proof) although I'm not overly concerned on mileage. I'm not interested in any engines with a blown head gasket, previous overheating or other associated issues. Located in Napier, Hawkes Bay. Happy to pay for shipping although anywhere within 3 hour travel would be highly convenient. Contact number: 0212034089, I'm not overly active on the forums. Thanks Richard

    To Buy An E30 Or Not?

    Hi, so my friend has a 1988 318i, which is running with an m40 on automatic transmission which he is currently working on. Its done about 160xxx k's, M-Tech body kit as well. This will be my first car and I am a huge fan of the e30 chassis. I am not the biggest fan of driving an automatic, and I am interested in converting it to manual. From my understanding a getrag 240 is what is needed for the conversion, but is it worth converting it? The m40 isn't the fastest engine, and over time I would like to swap the engine into an m50b25. Would i still be able to use the getrag 240 or will I need another gear box completely for an m42 conversion? I wouldn't want to waste money converting and then needing to get ANOTHER gear box if I decided to swap the engine. Any advice would be nice as I am new to this. Cheers bros!

    E30 318i Coupe

    1990 E30 318i Coupe WOF till December 25th 2014 Rego just expired Thought I’d post this up on here before putting up on Tardme. 1.8 M40b18 Odo shows 164k’s, however it has stopped about a year and a half ago, so actual will be higher, but not by more than around 5-7k. It has the usual tappet noise but otherwise runs well. Drinks a frugal amount of oil. Had recent replacement gearbox mounts and 1 engine mount. Highlight of this car is the Genuine Alpina 16” wheels with Yokohama tyres. The fronts are alright, the rears are getting low but still above legal minimum. No centre caps, however the wheels are in great condition without curbing or scratches. The suspension has been overhauled with New King Springs [super low] and New KYB shocks. This does not sit too low on this suspension, as seen in the pics, but it does a great job of holding the car nicely and is great for the road. New bushes were installed at the time meaning it handles much better than the boat it was before. Link to the build thread here The interior is in poor to excellent condition - meaning some parts are excellent e.g. the rears seats and trim, and some are poor like the front seats - the front seats are original but have the fabric blown out, especially on the driver’s side. The rest of the interior is fine/ excellent. Dash has a few cracks. Light controls moved to roof console - airplane styles - missing trim under dash on RHS of steering wheel. The exterior has a few marks, and the area around the RHS boot needs painting. It was repaired [rust] and is still in primer/sealer photos of repair can be supplied. There is also a small patch near the aerial in the same condition. The rear bumper is cracked, however a non-damaged spare can be included. The front bumper has already been swapped over but has not been painted. The side window trim has come off on one side and needs new clips to put it back in place. This was my project car but I’ve taken a job in Sydney so no longer have the capacity to complete it. I’m not asking too much as I realise that it is in an incomplete/slightly dirty unfinished condition, however most of this work is superficial and with a bit of TLC this car could come up nicely. VERY road worthy and just passed a VTNZ WoF. Asking $1500 neg. as is. Call or text Richard 021 606 703 who is selling on my behalf so any questions about history - PM me here as he is only handling the sale/inspections.

    manual shift linkage, e30 318i

    just got a 1990 e30 318i, and has a slightly major problem with it. unable to select any of the bottom row of gears. pretty much, the linkage is too beaten up from the right shape, so does anyone have one that will fit?
  21. Hey guys, just after some leather seats for my 318i e30, 1989. It currently has just stock seats in them that are in insanely good condition but leather looks a lot sexier! If you know of anyone selling please let me know.
