  1. Hi Team So i'm a new member myself and thought i'd kill two birds with one stone and introduce myself. Names Richard and i'm here to share my journey with my dream car build. Yes you read it right i am going to drop a v12 into the best shape ( my opinion ) bmw ever made. So i had purchased the v12 motor and auto box off trade me late 2015. Have also managed to find a rare 6 speed box that come out of the 850csi bmw that i had to get shipped from Britain. Treated myself to a nice New Zealand new 2000 manual 232i for my birthday earlier this year. Very nice looking with the factory 18inch mags and msport half leather seats and factory spoiler kit too. So here the build begins. over the 3day weekend i disassembled the engine to start cleaning parts for the rebuild. Had already took the heads off and sent to an engineering place to price up getting some custom cams and an ITB set up made. I also have a full new gasket set, head bolts and piston rings that will be replacing all the old stuff, a custom dry sump set up from the states as the oil pan had to be modified to fit the factory cross member. Here are a few picture of the motor in bits. feel free to pass on feed back or any advice team happy to share this build with you guys.
  2. So for the past 18 months I’ve had a 1988 E30 coupe project to replicate a Alpina B3 2.7 and have thought for a while I should create a plog.. but maybe the horse has bolted.. maybe I’ll get around to it.. But with buying my long held ambition and first M3 along with some inspirational plogs particularly by KwS and M3AN I could/should/would. So picking up the baton, in this case KwS’s old E36 M3 and with thanks to mzhu031 for selling it. So this was taken the day I brought it 4th April You know I’ve never had a white car and would’ve liked a racing white M3 but not for $38k lol. I have had silver and imho easy to keep looking clean. I like that it’s on 8.5’s all round but not convinced with the polished style 24s tbh maybe they’ll grow on me. I had it checked by a local Indie which highlighted a few issues all fixable Mechanically it’s in good shape and my early stage plan is to fix the above and tidy up the exterior and interior plus a few other enhancements in no particular order - Mount front lip - Replace rear shock mounts including reinforcement plates DONE - Replace rear shock absorbers with Bilstein B6’s (Bilstein B6 struts front, stock springs all round tbc) - Replace front tyres with Yokohama AD08Rs (matching new rears) - Screws for front valance - Front subframe reinforce and repair - Clean engine bay and detail - Service fluids engine, gearbox, lsd diff - Source 2nd hand front bumper support brackets, highbeam covers - Repair LH door card - Replace steering wheel with 3 spoke DONE - Clean interior including steam clean carpet and seats - Re-trim front seats - M3 floor mats - Check spark plugs, distributor & rotor - Respray boot lid and front valance - Replace brake rotors and pads - Replace exhaust back box Have completed a few of these in a burst of enthusiasm and posted under “what I did today” forum.
  3. I've got a silver 2000 318i with an m3 front bumper with big empty holes where the fog lights are supposed to be... Drivers side has a cover as in picture (part number 7 893 068) so would be happy to get the passenger side of this part or two new ones of a differents style. Cheers

    M3 E30

    With reluctance I am putting my E30 M3 up for sale. It required some work to be made road legal and I dont have the time or cash to commit to it. So - M3, the car that BMW perfected the art of producing a homologation special. 2.3, 1989 European specification. Type code AK05. This is a 215hp non cat variant, chassis number WBSAK050570AE40925 It started life in Germany and after about 10 years moved to UK. It was de registered and moved to Portugal where it was used as a track day car. It was imported to NZ and has only done a handful of miles in the last 9 years. Odometer 250,905 km. Still on UK plates it will need compliance to be registered in NZ This car does required some work to get it back to its M3 glory. It has the headlining and carpet removed. It is missing some interior parts in boot. There is some rust in the left inner guard and number plate lights. Non standard exhaust, missing fog lights. Otherwise it is very original, unmolested example of the best version that is not an Evo. Sits on Evo 2 16 inch wheels. No evidence of repairs except strengthening front anti roll bar mounts on chassis rails. As it is not road legal test drives are restricted. If you know what an E30 M3 is, and have $55,000, then please message me. Location south Auckland. The only swap that is of interest is cash. This is an opportunity to own a real M3 with some work, and price reflects that. Comes with some required spares such as door cards, sunroof, boot interior that have been collected over the last 9 years.
  5. Before I order a new one online, does anyone have a E36 steering wheel hub they want to sell? Preferably Momo, hub for airbag models but will take a non airbag one as well. Part number either 2008 or 2011 if Momo. I'm in Auckland but don't mind paying for shipping.
  6. Hi all, looking to buy a B12 Pro Kit for a 95 m3 3.0. Prices are a real mixed bag out there and can’t seem to land for less than $1500, and that’s defore duty if they get stopped. Anyone had any success sourcing these for cheaper, or can recommend a better combo? cheers
  7. carbon fiber bootlid for E46 coupe model BMW only. Not sedan or other. Used but in great condition. Has been used on my E46 for about a year. Great fitment also. Has UV coating. Comes with liner, clips, license plate screws, electric bootlid handle, badges, lock mechanism (latch) Needs reverse lights, key lock barrel and an E46 coupe, preferable 330ci ?? those will complete it perfectly. Paid $1300 on shipping costs alone. Comes with everything in photos. Ask for details I would much prefer pick up since the box is large. But could look into shipping costs if really needed. Pick up Hamilton or Cambridge Price for the forum $1500. Have on trademe at $1800 buy now.
  8. My cow cocky mate sold his E36 M3 and has a new spare engine he was having built for sale S5032 professionally build race motor. Brand new build completed and ready for dyno. You can’t build this for this price. Starting from the bottom and moving up • New Race Bearing and ARP bolts • Molnar Rods with Wossner 12:1 Pistons • All polished, honed and milled, all new hardware, tensioners etc • Cat Cams 285°/279° with all the right followers, shims etc • Stainless and Nitrate valves. Professionally built at an engine builder not in someone’s back shed. Plug it into a ECU and away you go. Was being set up for an endurance racing motor to run approx. 325 – 335 WHP. Depending on your headers, airbox and computer. We were getting a comfortable 298 WHP on softer cams and standard airbox and lower compression. The test of reliability is the previous engine won both north and South Island endurance classes over three years Sold as a long block with no alternator, headers, starter or airbox (the stuff people usually swap off their old engine) Evan at Speed Factor helped with the build and we have all the receipts etc. Ask any of us the questions you need to know. After $16,000. The parts alone cost this not including the block. Building up a Toyota 86, so may consider part swap for genuine Toyota racing parts. If this is too much for you, check out the S50B30 also for sale (my old race motor) – if that sells first I buy this. Give Wrighty a call on 027 452 5908 or email him creekdalefarm@gmail.com or messenger me.
  9. Howdy, I'm on the hunt for an E36 M3 in blue, yellow or white preferably. But will consider other colour combinations. Ideally looking for a '96+, 3.2L Euro spec and "low" milage.. which isn't critical based on the cars age! Service history is a must though. Let me see whats out there!
  10. Thought I'd share today's arrival, very exciting times! Karbonius CSL Air intake - Box, Snorkel. Have decided to go with carbon fiber trumpets over OEM plastic trumpets.

  11.

  12. Hi All, New to the Bimmer forum thought id give it ago, proud owner of a 2005 e46 M3 (SMG). Have owned for about 3 years (bought it when I was 19) and have loved every moment! Obsessively maintained to always be looking/running her best but did not come as it currently looks as I thought it could do better and wanted to make it my own. Fortunate enough to have full service history which was important as it’s done more km’s than most. Joined the forum to learn more about BMW’s and see/learn what others out there have done to there’s to make them better and possibly go along to some meets as iv never been to one. Future plans include CSL air intake ect, agency power headers, mid pipes. GTR vented bonnet on its way from overseas. Carbon fibre going to be pained car colour with vented grills left black.

  14. Genuine Momo steering wheel boss kit for late type E28 and E30s.

Pickup from Panmure or can post for $10 (non rural).
  15. From what I have researched, use the S50 ECU and loom, bypass EWS from the original engine and I'm good to go? If the M3 the engine came from didn't have automatic aircon should I convert to the manual version/ Delete completely? Cheers, Connor

  18. Purchased a BMW M3 for my partner and supercharged her with E46 M3 VT2-575 Supercharger System (Gen.3) - ESS Tuning The top of the line, intercooled Gen.3 S54 VT2-575 supercharger system produces 575hp and 360lb-ft of torque at 10psi of boost. A 232hp gain over stock, eclipsing the output of a Nissan GTR! Featuring the highly efficent, extremely durable and self contained Vortech V3 supercharger unit in Si trim, the supercharger is capable of producing up to 775hp. Added Blistein PSS10 Coilovers and a few other bits and bobs to her. She's a beauty!
  19. Hi all I'll be selling some interesting bits and pieces, mainly E36 Evo M3 driveline parts, and M50/52 parts, that will no longer be used.
