  1. how much money am I allowed to spend on the new build?
  2. You should be able to get the ABS fixed approx $500. (did it on my old E39, a guy down in taupo does it. http://www.ecu.co.nz/abs) Having owned plenty of E46 in the past, there is definitely a bit more power from the 3L in a 330i but its still no rocket. If you find a nice 325 that ticks a lot of the other boxes I wouldnt discount it.
  3. I think if you get first option on a special deceased estate vehicle and its one that you actually quite like, there isnt much reason to say no unless its not financially a good option for you at the time or you need to sacrifice something else in order to get it such as number of vehicles etc.
  4. nice! whats one of these 335 lci wagons worth these days? 15-20k?

    Can I have the negative terminal disconnected for a long time while testing this? I think under 0.5A is considered normal. I have heard and read a lot of possible issues with the battery/IBS and water/moisture which is why I went and fixed up the tubing for the sunroof drain hole. Im just not sure because the battery has been replaced already and the test today came back good so there must be something else wrong with it. @aja540i any ideas?

    Had the car parked up for about 3-4 days and battery was drained and wouldnt start. Got AA to charge and test it and came back all good..? it was replaced approx 3-4 yrs/50,000kms ago by previous owner and coded to the car. before we parked it up the clock reset itself a few times and also the reverse cam stopped working. (Still doesnt work atm) any idea what i need to look at to get this sorted? Is there a way to check for battery drain? can i disconnect the neg terminal and test the fuses or something? Thanks!
  8. I also didnt see that part. No wonder its way cheaper than what it should be. Its interesting how much cheaper these write offs are taking into account the cost to buy then to fix, they still manage to turn a profit.

    Everything looks okay but the old drain tubes were definitely a bit clogged with dirt. New hoses will definitely help a lot. there is an issue with the battery or ibs or both, clock keeps dying and now reverse cam stopped working. Also managed to fix one side of the retractable blinds not operating when opening the glass hatch, the little tab was blocked by some wiring and a small box which i realised after removing the pillar trim.
  11. does @M3AN still have his super duper philips ones for sale?

  13. @adro Is that E12 the one that drives around WLG? pretty sure I saw it around the CBD on my last trip down there
  14. Thought I’d make a thread where people can post up photos of their cars if they dont want to make a whole new thread dedicated to it.
