  1. How much and what. Are the details of the tyres? Tried to pm you but said you can’t receive messages. Cheers.
  2. I could be interested in straight purchase of the 18”s ? cheers
  3. Welcome from a Z4 owner in Wellington. I have a 2003 3.0 manual E85, under rated car IMO. Ditching the run flats make a big difference, I guess you mean Bilstein shocks and standard springs? I have Motorsport suspension but was considering the H & R’s with koni or Bilstein shocks so interested to hear your comments. Nice looking car in white.www.z4-forum.com is a good UK site for Z4 enthusiasts.
  4. Cheers Iain and Sam. Will have a look at them. Good to meet you yesterday. Go the Hurricanes.
  5. Considering modifying the exhaust on my 3.0 Z4, any recommendations in Hutt Valley or i may have to look at wellington? Thanks
  6. WTB Lightweight wheels for 2003 Z4. Apex or BBS preferred though Schnitzer type 3 possible. 8.5” square or staggered 8.5” and 9”/9.5” no offset below 30. With or without tyres. Not much out there but thought I’d ask. Cheers
  7. Looks like intermittent confusion between miles and kilometres (UK import)
  8. NZVV do this, New Zealand Vehicle Valuations.They are in Christchurch but I sent photos and a description and they come back with a valuation. I did this for insurance with Star, They are approved valuers by Star. I was really happy with their service.google them.
  9. Thanks, we’ll see what comes on the market post lockdown and be patient. Manual is first choice and no rush, I’m not carless
  10. I guess I’m trying to sneak another car in to the household that I can have a bit of fun with under the guises of a sensible daily, trying to keep the other half happy. Once the lockdown is over I can go and drive a couple and if the auto doesn’t deliver for me then I’ll just have to be patient and wait for a manual. cheers
  11. You are right of course, could have should have looked at the one IainR bought but black isn’t my first colour choice. Looked like a nice car mind you. The only manuals for sale at the moment have done too many k’s for me or they are too expensive, ie $17 + turners in Porirua have an auto for under $8k I see
  12. Thanks for the feedback everyone. In terms of what’s on trademe at the moment the auto cars are better value, better condition for the prices asked. My preference is manual but if the gear changes are reasonably quick in the auto then I could live with it as a daily. Will drive a few once the lockdown is over.
  13. My preference is manual but at the moment you seem to be able to buy an auto in better condition and cheaper than a manual and if I hated it I could do a manual conversion. Quite keen on the n52k engine as well which makes it 2008 model onwards
  14. Thanks for that Kelvin, will get in touch afte4 the lockdown. Cheers
