  1. Hi I have a single one which I believe has never been used (it’s in mint condition). Not sure what it is worth. If your interested let me know!
  2. Thanks for the responses guys. I’m getting the car ready for Certification so unfortunately it’s not road legal to drive. I’ll have a yarn to my local auto sparky. cheers
  3. Hi team, Anyone know how to reset an early type E36 airbag light? It’s the type with the two Fluoro orange impact sensors in the engine bay. I have a Peake airbag scan tool but it doesn’t detect this system. Accidentally connected the battery with the steering wheel removed. Thanks, Niroy
  4. Now on trademe https://www.trademe.co.nz/2240446225 and more photos
  5. Up for sale is my E36 coupe. I have owned this thing for about 4 years and slowly modified it for a bit of fun. Modifications, specs and maintenance include: • Suspension bushes refreshed (apart from swaybars) including Meyle HD front control arm bushes, M3 offset lollypops, Ruff rear subframe bushes. Have most receipts. Done at 205530km • Vogtland Sport Suspension Kit with new mounting hardware (top hats, bumpstops, Ruff rear mounts) with a rare AC Schnitzer front brace. • ZF manual gearbox conversion (around 3000 kms ago), RHD flywheel, carbon kevlar clutch, UCC braided clutchline, replacement slave, replaced hanger bearing, guibo. First gear whines a bit but hasn’t caused any issues. • Braided brake lines (Stoptech) • Style 68 wheels 17x8.5 square (refurbished, lathed lips, acid dipped and painted), front Turner Motorsport 15mm spacers, Bridgestone Adernalin RE002 • 325i twin catless exhaust • Refreshed cooling system (previous owner @180k) Radiator, fan shroud, coupler, fan, thermostat housing) • Black leather interior, good headlining, door cards ok and has new shifter and handbrake boots. • Comes with misc bushings and seals and subframe reinforcement plates. • Known faults: has usual stone chips and a couple of scrapes, needs new front indicators, bonnet struts, bonnet/boot badges, displays tail light failure on computer despite them all working. Probably missed a heap of things, my plan was to convert it to m54b30 and the reason for it being un-certed. Poor car sits in the driveway and has only done a 960km odd since January last year. At the time of purchase it was a better price consideration then the 328i Asking $6k ono PM me for more details
  6. Hi Aaron, What is the condition of the soft door seals on the e36 coupe you are wreaking? The seal goes around the car body frame and sandwich’s between the door and the frame. Thanks Niroy
  7. Great score on the E36 and nice work mate! What scanning tool have you got there?
  8. Hi Dave, Ive done this on an M50 before, from memory: I used an engine crane. A combination of support brace and trolley jack may do it, Undo steering shaft coupler at rack end, There's a bracket on the power steering pump to sump which needs to be unbolted, Undo engine mount bolts into sub frame then sub frame bolts and lower down for clearance, Work your way around oil pan bolts (don't forget the two into the rear main seal cover), Not sure about the dipstick tube, believe there's a bolt half way up on the M50 but M52 uses a different dipstick tube (one bolt, some breather tubes and its pressed in with an o-ring). I didn't disconnect any lines for the power steering, however taking the power steering reservoir out of the bracket does help in getting the sub frame lower. Hopefully that's some help!
  9. I have a Fenix with the expansion tank built on the side. Are you after this type or the external expansion type?
  10. Yep have all the information and email trail. Even have the email which they say the wrong suspension kit was sent. I started running into a brick wall when they asked me to price shipping to send the item back and the cheapest price I could get was $400NZD. After that they didn't want a bar of me.
  11. Hi all, Update: I ended up purchasing a set of Vogtland suspension from Demontweeks. This is how the story unfolded.. Asked Demontweeks for a kit suitable for sway bar on strut application and they told me which one to order and also indicated I had to order specific strut hats and washers; Ordered kit and emailed them to confirm the right type will be sent and at the same time ordered support items from ECS Tuning; Suspension kit received and you guessed it wrong kit sent; After a series of emails and phone calls they stopped communication and refused to provide a solution to this issue. I started to process a cash back request from my bank to get my money from Demontweeks but decided I would loose out more as I already spent $300 odd with ECS Tuning in mounting items. So.. the suspension kit will fit my E36 however I need to change the front sway bar links which defeats the purpose of why I purchased a new suspension kit in the first place. Pretty frustrating and the fact that Demontweeks will get away with stuffing up an order with no repercussions! Anyway some photos to make this a happy post?
  12. I believe the pre 92 m-suspension 325i had them and the m-suspension 328i. The chassis number on real oem will tell you. I could probably wait a couple of weeks if the price is good?
  13. Hi all, Im on the hunt for an e36 25.5mm front sway bar with links to attach to control arms. You might have one lying around from a previous project. Thanks, Niroy
  14. Thanks all, PM'd him. Ill let you know what I end up with.
