  1. Thanks. That's a bit more than I expected for such high kms, it must have been in very good condition. The recent asking price for under 200k 1.9 manuals had been around $5k. A good idea to auction it!
  2. The PLMC prices are not really, really unrealistic... if the cars were MANUALS. I'd pay $6k for low km 1996 528i manual. I assume this fellow owns these cars as investments (no financing) if he can hold out this long... and has a no mortgage car lot.
  3. Anyone see what this sold for? I'm curious to know but for some reason TM doesn't show me. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/listing/2935915907
  4. Yes, here's another optimistic LHD seller. At least this one is Euro. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/m3/listing/2904589446
  5. That's my opinion... https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/listing/2942251621 It is a USA M... only 240hp, not 320hp... maybe if it had 10k kms on it... I recently bought a stunning Z3 2.8 manual for less than 1/5 of this... with RHD.
  6. How does one acquire the above mentioned software(s)?
  7. I have been driving an 1997 E36 318i Motorsport sedan for 10 years. It's a made in SA car and it's a fantastic car. I am the 2nd owner, the first owner brought it with him from SA. It has no modifications. I recently bought a 1995 M3 sedan and am annoyed to discover that the steering ratio is lower than my 318i. It's not a lot but enough that I noticed right away. Any ideas on why this is? The rack part numbers are different (on realoem.com). Why would they be different? Thanks.
  8. I'm not sure the photo is the best. It was provided by the PO. The PO put the OEMs on and I fully support that decision. I (we) believe for maximum resale value in the future a 'classic' car needs to be un-modified.
  9. H&R Springs for 1995 E36 M3 PRICE $275 Fitted to car June 2016. They were on the car for <20,000 kms. They were removed to fit OEM M3 springs. Will fit 1995 M3 for sure. Will fit other E36 but require large front upper seat from earlier car. See this link https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_Info/PELHR5041055.htm?pn=PEL-HR-50410-55&SVSVSI=0547&DID=62442 Photo of car is with these springs installed. PM if interested. Located Raglan/Hamilton
  10. Thank heaps! This is what I was expecting and I was hoping you'd find my post. Cheers.
  11. I appreciate your response that system is not for this car. This is a 99 with a DBW system (there is a cable, though ultimately throttle movement is controlled by a computer). It has ASC so to add CC it should be an ECU flash and finding some wires under the dash to connect switches to... I'm speculating. I saw that bmworld car but its almost 3 years ago... I've enquired anyway.
  12. Yesterday I a purchased the below Z3 from a seller on Trademe. 1999 Z3 2.8 manual etc. When the ad on was trademe someone posted in the questions a compliment for the car and that CC could be added to the car easily. Unfortunately the ad is gone and I forgot to take a copy. Anyone know who or how to do this? Thanks.
  13. I know this is old but... I'm looking for the rear console part I need to fit roll bars... I have the roll bars. Also need a set of bilsteins.
  14. BMW Ltd has kindly donated a shifter to me. Thanks! Side note... BMW dealer quoted me $354.... LOL.
  15. I've just purchased a 1995 M3 Sedan which has a 50% short shifter kit (as compared to my stock MS 318i Sedan). I don't care for it and would like to have a stock shifter in its place. Part 5 below. If you have one please contact me.
