  1. Think it was listed at 9k initially. Looks like it's price has been dropped to try and sell. Nothing nefarious there but given the kms and age it's got a few potentials for a big repair bill: Clutch, PCV, Vanos Solenoids, Coils, suspension and bushings, engine/gearbox mounts, Various Gaskets for oil leaks etc.

    Yeah, the BMW Performance shifter looks really nice, especially with aluminium trim kit. But it's quite small in hand compared to the standard shifter. Feels like a child's toy. I've gotten used to it but would definitely take a stock one over it in terms of shift feel. One of these days I'll order the zhp but I'm barely driving my car atm.
  4. I've had one of those sitting here ready to install for a couple months now, not a speed and cool one but a Turner Motorsports. Any differences with it installed? How easy was it to put in?
  5. It seems like you know most of the the faulty parts, get a bmw dealer quote on them would give you a worst case scenario. Personally unless the car was super cheap I would find another as you've got a couple of rabbit holes there, without getting into stuff like waterpump, coils and other maintenance bits that likely needs doing considering the current state of the car.

  7. I've dealt with that guy before, that's who I got my roof strip from(same car I'm pretty sure). Was a good price.
  8. Interested in the M3 lcas, tension arms and adjustment rod. Pretty reasonable price considering the work done, condition and kms. Le Mans Blue is the best colour imo
  9. Low mileage, not a lot of manuals around below 100k kms.
  10. NZ new manual is rare af
  11. Pretty common to see high mileage cars on the 130i Owners page, if it's looked after could be a good pick up.
  12. Is that a wrap? Unusual colour. Also that price 😳
  13. Was having a browse on Japanese auction listings and noticed only a couple of manuals, going for around $12k NZ ( 120k+ kms and shipped here). Autos are still priced where I remember ($6-8k and plentiful) from when I last looked a couple years back. Will keep an eye on it and see if they're becoming more scarce, thus pricier to import.
  14. OE Aero spoilers aren't available anymore from bmw and are pretty sought after. Never heard about them having issues with fitment, all the ones I've seen fitted look good 🤔
  15. Yep, though it's not mine anymore. Sold it to a family member as running 3 130i was a bit overkill. Was hoping to buy it back off them in a couple years and manual swap it but they've decided to sell it now 😢
