  1. Best to get an N47 powered car that’s had the timing chain job done already.

  3. I have the Hartge back boxes.
  4. Pull the lower rear seat base up and see if there’s signs of original black paint there.

    Project E39

    points to evidence of some gorilla using a BFH in the past to try and separate the Balljoint.
  6. Looking at options for getting a 200kg engine on a pallet sent to me from Napier. Any recommendations on a company to use?
  7. My M5 has 205000kms. Would these be a good replacement for the presumably tired ones on the car?

      Definitely. The stock bushings are fluid filled and leak, you know they’re toast if the steering wheel shimmy happens under braking or around 80-90km/h. The X5 bushes sharpen the steering response too.

      I don't have shimmy but I don't find the steering to be particularly sharp.  In that case I will buy them.  Where are you located?  I

    Sold.

    Arms $100 for the pair - $old. Shift Knob $old.
  9. I've been doing track days once a month at Puke and intend to until closedown.
  10. It puts a price on the post or it gets the hose.
  11. You even get fake non staggered style 65’s!
  12. I’ve got my M5 on their classic cover package and there’s no where in the policy about mileage restrictions, for 5 years now. They do low ball each year for renewal in value which is annoying and an extra $100 for a valuation to get agreed value. Had a claim on the X3 recently for Fr bumper damage and it was quite painless. While the work carried out by their choice of shop was good, I found things in the engine bay not re-installed properly. I wasn’t given a choice of which shop did the work. Have been with state, ami and tower over the years. Have only ever made 3 claims including the recent X3 one. AA hands down the best. The rest can ggf’d.
  13. Where there’s a will there’s a way.
  14. @Blackie Have you considered this?
