    WTB e34 wagon

    Haha let me know if he has any 540 wagons he'd get rid of. Don't mind a bit of a project.
  2. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/bmw/listing/2902392206?bof=7HzS8hQF It's an '85 323i according to trademe and carjam but has the facelift body (taillights and bumpers) and doesn't match the original colour at all. It says it has been resprayed but can't imagine they'd put in so much work to redo the engine bay and inside the doors to me. Comes off mildly fishy to me...

    WTB e34 wagon

    Like the title says, looking to buy an e34 wagon and want to see what is out there. Preferably wide grille and v8 but I'll consider anything.
  4. I have moved to the great big country of Europe where owning cars is expensive and daily driving classics seems to be "not done". So I've come to the point where, still having 3 cars in the Homeland is maybe not the best option for me right now. So here for sale is my 1987 320i. It's manual, and coupe and is NZ new. It's got a bit of wear and tear, but then again it's a BMW from the 80s so we can't expect everything. Most notable being the sunroof (comes with a spare), shifter bushing, seats and a spot of rust near the taillights. It's for sale on trademe for $7500: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-2206179000.htm I'll say 7200 Ono for the good folks on here but any offers considered. (If you think my price is crazy and outrageous please tell me I have no idea how to price this thing. I priced it as the cheapest manual coupe but maybe that logic is wrong?) Also for sale a half decent e34 525i with the head (m20b25 head reconditioned) off for like 500 bucks, gotta get this thing outta my parents' backyard. Comes with a free bow and arrow and receipts for the head work. If anyone wants some pics of either cars just send a response so I know I've got some interest. Cheers
  5. Hey guys! Looking at buying an e34 wagon with an m50b25tu. Owner sent me a video of it with the ticking engine which seems to be the only problem. He says it's lifter tick but it seems pretty loud and to me sounds pretty close to when my mate's bluebird got the ole rodnock. Maybe I'm just imagining things, but if anyone's willing to have a listen and give me their $.02 that'd be great. https://youtu.be/cVRk5UjB0mY 964900B0-3936-4723-BD5B-52DC66575E53.MP4
  6. I'm currently still looking at suspension options for my E30 and have started looking into cheap adjustables. From Europe one can get very cheap adjustable suspension, I was just wondering what the legality was of power quality suspension set ups in cars. Does the suspension have to be made by a reputable company to be certable, like wheels, or can you just Chuck anything in there and hope it stays?
  7. Considering getting Konis for my e30, along with some H&R Races, however, just wondering if I need a cert for the konis seeing as they are adjustable. If anyone has any info it'd be much appreciated.
  8. Hey guys. My radiator is broken and I'm trying to source a replacement but apparently the pfl 320i rad is pretty uncommon and hard to find. If I want to swap to a facelift radiator what will I need? Or alternatively could I fit a 325i pfl radiator with the stock hoses and setup or will it require a different set up? Cheers
  9. Hey guys Just bought this e30. I haven't driven it yet but my dad has and he reckons there's a chance the timing could be off. He sent me this picture: And this video of the car running: He says when pulling in 4th at low rpms it makes a ticking noise. Here's an audio recording, it occurs at 1:17, 2:17, 2:21, 2:35, 2:42, 3:18, and 3:22: Anyone have any ideas?
  10. Yeah it's prefacelift. When I get back home I'll see how straight I can try and get it borrowing some of my mate's panel beating stuff but if I can find a good solid valance I might as well.
  11. Just bought an e30 but the night before I was gonna view the guy accidentally hit a lamp post while driving... Decided I'd go for it anyway since I'd been looking for so long. Anyway will need a new bumper and a new valence and maybe some other stuff depending on how bad it really is. I can't take anything apart yet because I won't pic the car up from my parents' place for another 2 weeks but it looks like all I'll need is the valance and a new bumper (and maybe that plastic bit behind there). The centre grille is still there and seems to be mostly fine.
  12. m20b25 swapped 320i, seems alright: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-1519509414.htm?rsqid=56df7921f3284c1eb6c0a558ebaa6a43
  13. Bump, would proably also take an auto, as long as 6 cyl... Anyone have a look for difference between 6 and 4 cyl?

    I love watching it. I'm surprised more people don't talk about it or that it isn't more popular to be honest. Great video and audio quality with a good host and an interesting topic. Much better than the car shows you see on TV nowadays with all the fake drama.
