  1. Was wondering if anyone has a decent set of style 72m to fit my e46? Preferably wellington/horowhenua but happy to pay shipping for a decent set. I thought I had a slow leak from the left rear, turns out the rim is cracked in 4 spots. I only really need 1 rear but I'm guessing the rest might be poked too.
  2. Beauty, thanks for the advice. I better get the wife's car all cleaned up for sale.
  3. Appreciate it. Anything in particular I should be keeping an eye on in regards to either model? I've heard horrible and great things on the 335i but know next to nothing on the 320d. In terms of long term reliability how does the f31 stack up?
  4. To cut a long story short, I'm getting rid of my wife's daily so she is going to hold on to my colorado. I'm looking at a decent touring so I still have something practical to cart the kids around. This will be my daily and I'm not to concerned about fuel costs but a bit stuck on whether to go for a bit of fun or the sensible option. https://www.trademe.co.nz/3405886674 this is possibly the fun daily option or https://www.trademe.co.nz/3371934630 as a sensible option. I know they are completely different wagons but I would love your opinion, the good, the bad, the ugly. These two cars might not be the final choices but you get the idea. Side note, the winner will be staying outside as the 330ci will never be leaving the garage 😁, I appreciate your opinion in advance.
  5. I appreciate everyone's input. I love the car but I don't think I love it enough to spend that sort of money on a manual conversion. Who knows one day the prices might go stupid like the E30 market but I feel it may be a little while away. I'll stick with the auto coupe ( until something better comes along anyway)
  6. Wow at those sort of prices I may have to give it a miss. Might be time to just enjoy it for what it is.
  7. Thank you fellas, appreciate it. I'll give Jon a call when I get a chance.
  8. I've recently sold my e30s for silly prices and decided to pick up a very tidy e46 330ci. Only downside of the car is the gearbox. My questions are, how much am I expected to pay to have it converted to manual? ( My skill set probably won't meet the criteria and I have zero spare time for this type of project) second question would be, who in the wellington region would you recommend for this conversion? Appreciate any help. Very curious at this stage.
  9. @BrentNZ sorry reviving an old thread here but very curious how this fitment went on your e30? Any rubbing or anything? What size tyres did you end up with? Do you remember where you imported them from? I've been struggling for months to find the right wheels for my coupe but this staggered fitment is what I have been looking for, just can't seem to find it anywhere.
  10. I've never considered it to be honest. Sounds like a nice ride. What would this set me back?
  11. Hi all, I have been offered to make an offer on an old e28. I have not viewed the car yet (hopefully will be seeing it next week) so I'm not sure what to expect. Putting a price on it is the bit I'm struggling with. There is only 1 535 on trade me for 14k. Any chance I could get your opinions on price for a below average condition, an average condition and an excellent condition. Keeping in mind it is only a 520. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  12. I'm liking the idea of the 130i or 335i. I will have to do a bit more research on both and hopefully come up with a suitable choice. I really appreciate all the input. If I make a decision I will let you all know.
  13. Appreciate all the comments. Definitely giving me some ideas to think about.
  14. Cheers for the reply's. I had set aside money to try buy a decent e30 coupe to turn into a fun weekend car but it's getting hard to find one in decent shape. I have almost given up on this idea but that's why I am exploring other avenues.
  15. Just as the title suggests, what bmw would you personally buy for 10k or under and why? I'm looking for something that is going to be a nice weekend car that looks great and has a good fun factor to it. I need something that is going to put a smile on my face every time I hop in it. Am I asking to much out of 10k or do I need to increase my budget? Any input is appreciated.
