  1. Agreed, of the 50+ watchers only 4 have asked about the car. Will give her another going over and update the photos. Personally I’d rather see how the car has aged (better overall impression of how it’s been treated), but if the public wants shiny it’s what they’ll get 🙂 Thanks everyone
  2. Hi guys, have had the former family wagon listed as a classified on Trademe https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-2715447399.htm for roughly 2 months now. Had a few people make contact, only one viewing so fairly little interest this far. Asking $4750 ono, am I out of step with what these are worth nowadays or is it just a sluggish market for tourings at the moment? Pretty keen to find the old girl a loving owner, any advice is appreciated!
  3. Crank position sensor is toast. The DME won’t arm the fuel pump unless it knows where cylinder 1 is in the cycle
  4. Shameless self promotional bump & price drop 😁 Surely someone’s looking for a solid wagon!
  5. Could you be tempted with an E39 touring?
  6. 2001 530i touring for sale. 217000km, second NZ owner after the 1st privately imported from Japan. Full cooling system replacement late 2014 (including those horrible hard lines under the intake manifold) , both cam & crank sensors replaced ‘15, ABS / ASC unit overhauled around the same time. Front upper & lower control arms & brakes replaced early 2019, new viscous coupling & radiator fan not long before Xmas last year. SLS airbags replaced earlier this year, MAF replaced at the same time. Serviced at 5k intervals with Castrol edge 5w-30, all work has been done myself. Xenon headlights with the clear tail and side lamps. Two keys & an NZ fitted towbar. We live in a semi-rural area so there are the usual stone chips around the front end and a small dent in the front passenger guard which I had quoted at less than $100 to have pulled out Job got derailed by L4 and subsequent L3 restrictions and haven’t yet had the time to get it sorted out. Has been a reliable and safe family hauler, with the exception of the SLS bags all parts were replaced as preventative rather than reactive maintenance. Selling as we’ve had to go up to a 7 seat suv with the addition of our third child, and I’ve gone to an LS1 with the end goal of a 650hp cruiser. $4750 negotiable I work a rotating 12 hour shift pattern so it can take me a little while to respond sometimes. In Waiuku, 20 minutes west of Pukekohe. 021 911004
  7. Hi, needing a spare 16” to go in the 530i wagon. Ideally as close to Pukekohe as possible. Thanks
  8. Yep, new pair installed and all woes remedied. Thanks for the advice Glenn, bloody good having a chat with ya 👍
  9. Yeah, will be doing them as a pair. The drivers side definitely has a droop going on, though not as bad as the passenger side 😂
  10. Good grief, what a dog of a spot to try accessing with the wheels on!! I’d say the bag is the culprit, can see bubbles to the right in the photo. Outside of the dealers do you know of anyone that stocks them in Auckland? Have seen the seller on trademe, would prefer to collect tomorrow if at all possible. Thanks for your help Glenn
