Why do you have different wheels front and back?

Combination of things. Lazy being one of them.

Refurbing the rear set of DS2's and the front Style 66 tyres too worn for WOF. lol

Removed the window regulator from the rear nearside door of the 320d.

Having listed it for sale, the regulator has decided enough is enough. Several little pieces of white plastic which have broken away from the regulator, a wire that doesn't wind properly, and a window that won't close on it's own.

<sigh>

Oh well. Something else to add to the very long list of tasks completed!

And... Regulator is fitted.

Got a new one from Kerry @mosen euro parts which had a captive nut where the original had a fitted, threaded stud. Hardly an insurmountable problem.

And the window goes up and down again. :)

Made the car and the dog shiny again (and now with new ACS centre caps, after much hunting and facepalming at the price of em!)

Just a good old fashioned clean! Also whoever designed basketweaves clearly didn’t have cleaning them in mind. Hopefully Santa is bringing some mag wheel cleaner :lol:

(hoping the photo taken with iPad is acceptable size...)

Managed to lock the keys to both our cars in the boot of the 135i...right after giving it a clean. The one time I reaaaally wished it came with comfort access

pulled the side repeaters off the M5, cleaned, polished, UV sealed and replaced. One more job ticked off on the list.

Nanna’d it from Auckland to Gisborne. 3/4 tank of fuel used which worked out to be 10.4l/100km according to the obc.

After probably a couple of months of doing bugger all on it since the engine replacement, i finally tidied up a few things yesterday...

Installed some new front wheel arch liner inspection covers, a missing airduct for driver's side brakes, a small heat shield for the gearbox, and a replacement abs speed sensor that had been throwing the odd error . Followed all that up with an oil change and a couple of beers :-)

Replaced coolant in e36 328i.

Was under car last night with it sitting on two axle getting to back engine engine drain. Hear tell tale low frequency rumble and move quickly. Sure enough small earthquake hits with a joilt(3.8) as iI’m moving out from under it. Car moved a bit on stands but all good. 

Let coolant to drain and contemplated getting back under the car again for quite a while ! Added a spare wheel and trolley jack into the mix.

That's no fun. Probably take a pretty serious quake to dislodge it, but I know I'd be getting out in a hurry in the same situation! If you'd timed things better, the shake would have helped with the coolant bleed process ;-)

The fun continues :unsure:, today was mancave day on the 530 for: Upper rear suspension wishbones (right side was going to fail next WOF), new radiator (original one still in car, not happy with fit of new one, Schmiedmann claims its OE quality but the shroud not quite right, it's in though..), and exhaust bracket replaced due to breakage.  Lucky I parked the other e39 out front as an emergency trip to SCA was needed for more tools... also had to hunt high and low for a nut to fit exhaust bracket, happy to say there's a little bit of HQ Holden in the Beema...

Replaced inner front drivers door rubber seal. Old one was manky and the rubber was all torn up. New-to-me one is not manky and only ever slightly worn. Looks much better.

Spending my only week off dealing with leaking rear door foam moisture barriers and a door card that’s separated. Old car fun.

Put the 520i back together- new viscous fan hub, fan, thermostat and housing, waterpump, belts and its pulley and a few other bits. Spent a long time chasing a coolant leak- I had forgotten to put in the o-ring that seals the thermostat :rolleyes:

Gave the Titansilver 530i touring a check over, heading up to Northland tomorrow so don't want any surprises.
