  5. Thanks Pete! Hopefully it catches someones eye like it did ours
  6. My partner's E46 coupe for sale. As per the listing on TradeMe. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1289407160
  7. Not sure if related to the ignition switch assembly? Our e46 had electrical issues but it was the indicators, radio and sun visor lights playing up. Took out the ignition switch, cleaned it up and haven't had any trouble since.
  8. No pics this time round but some updates. -Wireless central locking all go. -Foglights all go. Had a few issues with relays, switches, bulbs and housings but all sussed now. Yellow halogen bulbs on order. -MTech1 steering wheel. Scored it for $25! Leather was shot though. -SS Brake Lines all installed. What a fun job, not! New brake pads and sensors too and a brake fluid bleed. -LED interior lights and put an extra light in the boot too.
  9. Slow changes unfortunately. Got the lowering springs in a while back. Jamex from the parts car. Worked the poor girl hard too. Just purchased our first home so car has been on the backburner On the positive side she gets to sleep inside now!
  10. Parts car is m20b23. But I think it has something major going on in cylinder #3. Will not fire it's getting spark and fuel alright and I suspect a head gasket. I has abs but it's a rust bucket so the rear hubs are pretty shot. Good news is it has the air con loom I needed and manual gearbox so will be attempting that in the coming weeks. Love that colour, johns coupe was the same colour too? Isabel's is as well maybe we should bring that to the next meet... I can't tell the line between a project and a showroom thread. I think a project is for the major "off the road for a while" jobs but that's only a guess!
  11. Installed remote central locking on the E30. Now I don't have to be paranoid about the replacement lock barrel disintegrating. Olaf, your wagon looks amazing. New wheels suit it very nicely too. Is that paint Orientblau?
  12. Picked up a parts car from Wellington. Manual converted 320i with an m20b23 transplant. Running one cylinder down though could be terminal for the b23. Robbing the good bits off it. Sun visors, door lock mechanism (now all my door locks and central locking work!) fog lights, 14" BBS including a spare and all centre caps!
  13. Repainted the rear valence and towbar. The black strip was starting to wear through to the base coat.
  14. It's just the tilting mechanism I believe.
  15. No idea??? I would be onto them if they were coupe seats.
  16. https://trademe.co.nz/1047933812 For those interested.
  17. Could I please reserve the F/L RHS High Beam. I will PM you too
  18. Hi All, Thought I'd make a thread to document what I'm going to be attempting to do. Have purchased a complete air con system and going to install it. It may take a while but here we go to kick things off. Added the switch just to make myself feel good about having all the bits in the garage. Installed the condenser and aux fan infront of the radiator. Waiting on some relays and wiring for the aux fan and have ordered an R134A Expansion Valve. For those of you who don't know, NZPost does a good mail redirection service from the US so you can take advantage of free US shipping.
  19. Step 1 of my air con retrofit project. This will be the easiest bit I'm sure!
  20. Ollie. I feel he is going to get a few requests!
  21. Glad the sticker did its job as intended! Only put it on the night before too.
