  3. $13.5k reserve 128KMs nice 19" aftermarket wheels aftermarket exhaust HUD no real service histroy known issues: -Sunroof occasionally does not work, (i usually just wiggle the control a bit and it goes) -Dash will say a park bulb is out and an indicator occasionally but it goes off after a short drive.

  4. Talking with a number of the Wellington guys last weekend at the Barry's garage meet, there seemed to be quite a lot of interest in a track day for people to have a go. The Constructors Car Club are running their annual track event on Saturday the 23rd of September. For anyone not going on the Whangamomona road trip, this would be a great event, with heaps of track time for a very reasonable entry fee. With permission, I've copied the event details from the organisers below: All Wellington motorsport club members are invited to this event... The Constructors club and MG club track day at Manfield, Saturday 23 September 2017, regs and entry form are now available for downloading at... CCC and MGCRR Track Day Entry and Regs.pdf This event is using the full 3km track at Manfeild and is intended as a low key opportunity for folks to try out driving on the track, learn some skills, test their car and have a rewarding day out. There will be tutorials available, slow sessions, fast sessions and one session with slalom sections coned out on the track. A second drivers briefing at lunch time is planned for drivers who only want to do the afternoon session. $90 if prepaid on-line or $100 cash on the day. Contact details for the organisers are given in the supplementary regs in the link above.
  5. 2007 E90 323i Motorsport $13K 94KMs Blue leather interior - clearly aftermarket rather than 'individual' as build sheet says "Stoff Blue Shadow/alcant./anthrazit"
  6. $12K 152KMs Looks tidy Sports suspension and DSC RED LEATHER WITH WOOD TRIM If you want to be different and you can't stand boring - then this might be a good option. I can't decide if I like this or not. I think I do but it would need a carbon wrap for the trim. What do you guys think? Bring on the opinions!
  7. price unclear (starting bid $7k) 195kms 'Sonderpolsterung' individual black and red contrast leather interior Active heated comfort seats Hi-Fi pro audio Bit of clear-coat fade Has had a bunch of important maintenance/replacement done Pictures are a bit rubbish but I like this
  8. $24K 62KMs "The PPK option increases the power output to 240kw (up 15kw from standard) and torque to 450Nm (up 50Nm), available from 1,500rpm. 0-100 times are also decreased. It also adds a nice burble to the exhaust on over-run (fantastic sound when in sport or using the paddles). The upgrade includes a software reflash to reduce lag and shift times; a second radiator; new intake; uprated cooling fan; and oil cooler. This vehicle was also optioned with the uprated BMW Performance yellow brembo big-brake kit, suspension, silver decal and badging, carbon fibre spoiler and interior trim - and coolest of all, white LED lighting pack (including halos)." Did wonder if this was John @e30ftw but TradeMe member ref appears different ... Looks like an awesome vehicle - some of the pics are very nicely done too
  9. Hi everybody! Interested in peoples' opinions around the BMW Car Club ... Is it worth belonging? Where does it have momentum? How do they organise things if they don't have anything like BimmerSport? What's the relationship between BimmerSport and the Club- is it 'competitive' or complementary? BimmerSport is a fantastic community and has increased my enjoyment of the BMW experience significantly. I don't want to do anything that works against that.... I'm asking because I'm considering joining the Club and maybe trying to kick start it again in Wellington - and I reckon there's a good complementary proposition that could get extra members flowing in both directions. BimmerSport is the open community for enthusiasts - no joining fees, no car ownership actually required - you just have to be interested BMW Car Club is a club focused on 'real life' activities and has an official BMW association. Events have rules and standards and there's some funding to do stuff. May attract some different people ... I pinged them and they'd appreciate help in getting Welly up and going again. Is this a dumb idea? Is anybody interested in doing the same thing and helping? @Olaf @skidz
  10. $4900 and 188KMs dude knows how to take some nice photos
  11. $21K 120kms Looks damned tidy!!! "I've owned for 6 years and have maintained through Powerhaus Thorndon. Preemptive maintenance completed: major servicing, replaced radiator, EDS suspension units, ECUS, power steering piping, driveshaft etc. includes original BMW handbooks, sale brochure, and two keys"
  12. 154KMs, $9K - current owner has had it since 1998! Looks like it has been looked after super well. This needs to go to a good home.Wonder if it is a member's car? Owner's name is Don.... - Engine M30 blueprinted to original spec at 145,000 miles Engine reconditioned , All components from HPC coating ( Engine cover, manifold, Oil filter housing, water-pump housing) M5 18" wheels Infinity Component Ref 5.25" 50.7 rear and front Speakers Alarm
  13. $6K 193KMs looks like it has been well serviced ... Very nice - and in the best colour methinks
  14. $9.5K - steepish for an E46 MSport? but .... NZ New, 3 owners 108KMs Leather interior Looks to be in great condition and well serviced ... and love the colour. Always better if it was a 330i but this would be a beaut daily driver.
  15. Hi all - I have a 1997 528i Touring in Oxford Green which I bought for $1,000 in 2015. I'm steadily restoring it as time and money allow. I wasn't overly handy when I started, but thanks to Google and YouTube I can now do a fair bit of maintenance myself, which is not only a lot of fun and extremely satisfying, but also makes classic BMW ownership a relatively affordable hobby. I'd be keen to meet up with anyone in the greater Wellington area or thereabouts who'd like to team up to help each other out with repairs, retro-fits or whatever. I set up a Facebook group if you want to drop in and say Hi.
  16. Hi all - having just acquired @treone's awesome E60 M5 I'm wondering about the best place to get a bonkers vehicle like this serviced. I've been a loyal customer of Driscoll Motors on Walter Street for longer than I care to remember. They're a good bunch and service all makes and models including plenty of euros (inc this M5 BTW - and some AMGs) - but a specialist they are not. By default I'll keep going there and another bonus is that they are familiar with Autosure/Vero and have made sure my policies are being used when they can/should. They have done a solid job with my E53 X5 and E60 545i - only thing that they couldn't sort was troubleshooting/replacing the iDrive on the E60 and they don't have the BMW detail module for the AutoLogic code scanner (provides some more detailed explanation of the codes). So - interested in your thoughts and recommendations - what (if anything) would I gain by switching and using somebody like Page European etc? Cheers, Pete
  17. 186kms, some display fade but tidy! Currently price is sitting at a tad over $4k... and auction closes in a week.
  18. Current owner had it for >15 years ; 184kms on the clock and for sale in Welly. Bit short on pictures but looks very nice!
  19. 194kms on it but looks to be in beautiful condition! Listing here. Very nice!
  20. About to do Auckland to Wanaka this week and back the next (hopefully with a bit more snowfall on the way!). The farthest I've driven before is just to Wellington and back. Does anyone have any tips about long driving in general but particularly catching the car ferry? Are you supposed to be there an hour beforehand to get everything sorted?
  21. Seems like a reasonable price - includes the $8K!? hard top too ... Apparently it is a 'rear' car too!
  22. Relatively unusual model and I'm sure it goes great - it just looks a bit bland :\ The Trade In Clearance place seem to often let their stock sit around for a long time rather than tweaking prices and moving it. I looked at their silver X5 SportPac before buying mine and they wouldn't sort the steering column (wouldn't move) and let the sale walk out the door pretty much. "Would you look at sorting that out?" "No." "Seeya"
  23. Looks very tidy given the 230kms and and at damned good reserve price of $5k! Got nice big 20's on it too ... At this age and kms you can still happily chuck a Vero/Autosure MBI on it too... via MTF Mt Vic. Cheap, big and grunty - but do remember the 17l/100km for urban
  24. -100kms, $26k
  25. $6k for this 2001 735i with 245kms with beige interior in pretty good nick. Quite rare to see these in black - I think it looks good - especially with the right wheels on it
