  1. Agent fee 100,000 yen ($1,500 NZ) and around $1400 for shipping just check the months of sailing if heat treatment is necessary to kill stink bug add extra $ 250. Then there is GST some shipping companys arrange this and pre MAF inspection in Japan which includes road transport to the nearest compliance firm from the port. Compliance if you are able to do the strip and assemble work at the compliance shop around $220 + registration, I am not sure what the fill price of compliance is.
  2. I Like it how they have supplied a pallet with the for sale, just pity the pallet is also broken.
  3. Hi John, Yes interesting like it has fallen off the radar haven’t herd a peep about it since it sold (confirmed) just hope the new owner is in NZ and gets it out and about.
  4. Hi, Does anyone know what happened to this car did it leave the country like the last Sport Evo.
  5. They look real nice in real life and they did a good job of the leather seats, just a shame the 2.3L did not turn out to be collectable in comparison to the Sierra Cosworth or the M3. The 2.5 Evo2 is just sublime. https://mercedesheritage.com/mb-heritage/3546 http://www.autozine.org/Archive/Mercedes/classic/190E.html
  6. I would start at the battery terminals make sure they are tight. Doubt scanning will reveal anything probably the computer system will most likely not have the capability. If you manage to get it running at home and it is missing dying connect a timing light to any plug lead and watch for light going out momentarily when missing to indicate electrical problem, if it is dying out and light still steady strobe then worn out fuel pump would be my pick.
  7. Price seems to be going up, doesn’t look like any thing else has changed. The front seat bolsters have been replaced which is unusual would expect them to last 200k plus.
  8. Hi, I would like to buy the black and grey Houndstooth front door cards in mint condition for an E30 coupe. Thanks.
  9. What surprised me is the seat bolsters have been changed possibly worn out. Plenty of patina under the engine bay does not have the refreshed anything look, a jolly good clean would make a world of difference.
  10. No need to pay someone follow this video can not go wrong did mine works like new now.
  11. The last one I seen on trade me early last year was 1987 Diamantschwarz 50K straight off the boat from Japan and had standard e30 rear seat and it sold quite quick, so that would be around the minimum price would be my estimate. Seen one sold at auction in Japan recently for 42,000 usd and had xx on both front guards and bonnet indicating previous repair work, and from what I have seen of the prices 42k usd would be a good average of the auction price.
  12. Having all the original parts to return it to its original condition is where the money is, that way being L/H drive again makes it desirable to world wide market.

    Getrag rattle?

    It seems to have some sort of exhaust issue, possibly some is leaking out and not making it out of the tail pipe. as for rattle over filling with oil helps.
  14. Hi, What happened to this M3, just hope it remains in NZ.
  15. In theory converting back is not to difficult mechanically and electrics but trying to get it legally registered back on the road in l/h drive that would take some doing.
