  1. Hi, Just from one to the other minute the dasboard light of my gearbox flicked on. I had to drive in limp mode 30km further to home. At home I was able to log in with Inpa, and Inpa told me that there was a problem with the pressure regulator solenoid valve. Normally I fix stuff myself, but at the moment I just don't have the time for it. So I brought the Z to a transmission specialist, and he had a look at it. He opened up the pan and found metal dust and swarf inside. The metal parts had shorted out the solenoid valve, hence the message on Inpa. He told me that that a overhaul would cost at least $4000 plus GST. I had to think that over... The next day my son spoke to our neighbour (BMW fanatic) who was at a local garage that morning asking for a quote for an auto to manual conversion for his E36. The garage said to him that it would cost probably around $3000. That brought me also on the same idea, why not a conversion? The garage said that the conversion of the Z cost probably a bit more. So the latest week I am browsing the net about conversions to manual. The garage who wants to do it for me rather have me sorting out the parts than him. He says that is cheaper to do. I am doubting between an E46 six speed box or an E36 5 speed. If I converse to 6 speed I can keep my LSD 4.44 and have normal rpm. Later I can go to 3.46 and have a nice cruise rpm. If I choose for a normal 5 speed, I have to change my diff to a 3.46 anyway. Any recommendations here? My garage gave me two addresses for parts. He pointed me to HellBM and SDEuropean. HellBM mailed back that they only do inhouse conversions and don't sell conversion sets. I haven't heard form SDEuropean yet (weekend) I saw some traders on tardme selling conversion sets. One trader is offering a set for $1250, which looks reasonable to me. But when I asked for a E46 six speed it is $3k for the gearbox only. What kind of prices are these 6 speed boxes. What can I expect? Are there other (reliable) sources where I can get my parts, prefered conversion sets? Any thoughts about this?
  2. Getrag 240 5-speed manual gearbox and all the trimmings for a M10. It'll fit an M30 too, but I don't advise that. I think everything you could need is included. Clutch, gearstick, linkage, clutch & brake pedals, slave and master cylinders, reservoir. At the moment it's still connected to the M10, and still full of oil. Shifted very nicely, smooth and precise, when in the car. Offering it here because you're all lovely people before putting it up on a couple of Facebook groups. $750. Collection from 45km north of Hamilton, just off SH1.

  6. Owning an E46, I saw the post at http://bimmersport.co.nz/topic/50157-diy-e46-retrofit-infrared-to-radio-frequency-remote-control/ that apparently covers my case and seems to contain all the info necessary to do the change desired. However, I myself am not prepared to do such a thing. Does anyone know someone reliable who will do that, conditions to be negotiated? The region would be AKL.
  7. Friend of mine has a 328i that is begging for a third pedal. We need all the parts to make up a full conversion kit. Located in Christchurch and willing to have items shipped.
