  1. Absolute unicorn. That must be 1/1 in RHD. Individual paint as well?
  2. @Neil McCauley looks like Dravit? there's a G81 M3 in Akl the same colour and I can almost forgive the snaggle tooth front end.
  3. maybe 30% of the s-/sl- class mercedes and the supercars when I was there last month were LHD.
  4. I really don’t think there is a better immediate metric for ‘how well has this car been looked after?’ branded tyres =/= perfect maintenance but linglong ditchfinders = ‘don’t touch with bargepole’
  5. Interesting - thought I was possibly imagining but 4.5.3 is definitely worse
  6. @Neal and @Dogballs - is your retrofitted connected drive setup functioning properly currently? My car has been registered via bmw nz for connected drive services ( UK import as well, brought in while BMW were still bringing them across to the NZ service) but the app is getting worse and worse - vehicle mileage functionality no longer works, I can’t change fuel remaining units from gallons to litres and remote services work less than half the time.
  7. Within a solid kiwi male of my (not that old) 3 series awd 3.0 diesel wagon weight-wise. I can sort of understand it for ev’s because the battery is so heavy but for a generic 4 pot petrol it seems…FAT
  8. @modz Nope and neither did Oz. Maybe Singapore did?
  9. E28 M535i with seriously non standard (straight piped??) exhaust
  10. Lovely car - GLWS
  11. Alpina D4S in Tokyo. Car culture here is awesome, heaps of late model Mercedes C and E class and Volvo estates, not so many BMW’s and Audi surprisingly but gives me hope that RHD wagons will still be available even if NZ New are all SUV’s
  12. Except the last 5 k of the Remarks road would likely be the end of your front splitter 😬
  13. To a local even @Bennyboy! Be interested to hear what you think of it
  14. @KwS ironically when they're going to spend several tens of millions to remove one set of traffic lights further down SH2 (Melling) - which I am in favour of. JFC NZTA are terrible. The public service cull should've started with them So much this.
