  5. Yea mate, anytime ///before 7pm haha In regards to your wheels, try see if anyone has some 10mm or 15mm spacers you could borrow, these do not require a cert. If they fit better, you can purchase a set, preferable a reputable set like Torque. Im in the process of getting one of my cars certed for adjustables and spacers, spacers that are 20mm and higher, will require a cert, possibly the 15mm too, but you'd need to check. Having owned several E39s, i have found that the offset of 20 - 10 has been best for fitment and looks, but for your dilemma, spacers may be the fastest and cheapest route. The spacers will move your offset from 35 - 25 / 20 depending on what you get
  6. I've managed to get mine pretty low. You just need to be prepared to remove the SLS if it has any. The NZ market isnt very big for the E39 Touring, but i managed to work it out for mine. Feel free to drop me a text 021 302 485 for a run down? PS i like those wheels
  7. Thanks Ray, ill make contact soon.
  8. Anyone wrecking an E39 Wagon?
  9. So after several months of waiting and collecting parts, I have now managed to install the - New Engine Mounts - New Front and Rear suspension bushes - Rear adjustable suspension mounts - New Rear brake rotors and pads Have also had the diff reconditioned and awaiting the new diff oil. Once done, I can then mount the diff to the swapped out drive shafts and hopefully start it up and take it for a test drive after bleeding the brakes and some misc wiring etc And in other good news, have managed to suss out a painter and an ex certifier to assist with some paper work etc
  10. I have a left rear door and left rear drive shaft. PM me if you're keen Cheers
  11. Diff is a 3:19 medium case. 1 210 411 C
  12. New photos of motor and box, manual conversion will come with FREE M20b20 motor
  13. Sorry, i cant see the ratio so not entirely sure. Pick up is in St Johns, will be removing diff this week
  14. I cant seem to upload any pics lately, tried from 3 platforms and different pics.
  15. I had the same issue on my E46, but i landed up sound deadening the boot, was cheaper and worked great. Also, try get some deadening above the muffler, between the heat shield and chassis. Another option would be to remove the new muffler and fill it with that metal sponge stuff you use to clean pots and pans ?
