  1. There was also one registered new in NZ in May 2014... currently on 8,100km.
  2. What is the rod bearing job costing you Peter? Im thinking of factoring it in my next 12 month maintenance budget...

    I dig it, big time. Nice to see someone going out on a limb like Chris Bangle, all of those Bangle busses are good lookers today just like this will be/is!
  4. They will definitely keep depreciating, probably to similar levels to E60s over the next few years as they become older and the F90 becomes a common used car. reliability on them is getting questionable particularly on early cars, I have seen quite a few major engine failures this far. Having said that, like anything as long as it has very good service history with only the correct oils used and you get a warranty (preferably BMW Premium Selection as your $10k Autosure claims limit won’t go far towards an engine rebuild) you should be good to go!
  5. How much of a difference does it really make? Did you notice a change in sound and response that would justify spending the money?
  6. As the title suggests, I am after a set of factory 20” X5 wheels. Not too fussed which style, let me know what you got!
  7. As the title suggests...
  8. As the title suggests... I'm after a rust free sunroof (colour doesn't matter) and a Tech 1 Steering wheel. Surely someone must have something kicking about!
  9. Selling my weekender, 1999 BMW 740i Sedan, NZ New, 250,000 odd kms in Titanium Silver with Black Leather. Has had timing chains, guides etc done. Currently fitted with 650i Coupe wheels, but also comes with original 16" alloys and tyres. Reasonably tidy for age, the paint is a little faded on the roof and a few scratches here and there but it is tidy for a 17 year old car. Looking for $4,000 for it.

  10. Both of those engines are rubbish.. the F20 turbo is pretty good. You will be forever chasing oil leaks. and they're gutless.
  11. Are you gonna part it out? If so, are the rear bumper and boot struts any good?
  12. I'm after a rear bumper cover for an E38. Its a 99 Facelift, not sure if they changed with facelift or not. The car has PDC. Cheers
  13. Apparently the vendor wants around $6k for it.
