  1. Hi All, I know this has been discussed before awhile back but i have hit a road block with my turbo manifold and wanted peoples opinion before i go and start spending $$$ So i managed to semi build myself an turbo manifold with individual runners but have run into issues on the collector end as i don't really have space for the wastegate unless i mount it on top of collector (which with my welder blowing a gas bottle, i need a new regulator + gas so that's about 350-400 i can put on that or someone else finishing my exhuast off) So check out pics attached and let me know your thoughts (Note i have a twin scroll turbo) 1. Go back to log style manifold (more space but likely wont support my power numbers i want) 2. Keep as is with bottom mount and have someone finish off the manifold 3. Keep same style but change to top mount (only issue is getting 2.5" outlet into two pipes, which i confirmed will just fit between last runner & firewall and 6/5) 4. Buy this and just get a 50mm flange installed - http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M30-T4-Turbo-Manifold-E30-E32-E34-E28-E24-E23-E9-/131806544376 5. Or go with this guys idea (pictures at top and bottom of page) and make down pipes fit - http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/showthread.php?t=285809 I am personally leaning towards options 3/4/5 but i do like option 5 as i could probably do with materials i currently have and just tac together and get someone to finish off but noticed there is no wastegate (so don't know if space is there) So let me know what you think and if need be we will do a poll and go for it + anyone know any good fabricators in manwatu/welly region as i would prefer local rather than sending the car somewhere else in the country. Note: Topcat , BMWorld and other members have been awesome so far with info and i will be representing bimmersport once this is up and running (dreams)
  2. I have a full e28 M30 manual conversion which will be available in about 4-6 weeks. Included are the following parts: E34 M30B35 Getrag 260/6 gearbox - does not have holes for the e28 sensors, the but the spaces in the casing are there, the holes just need to be drilled. Includes crossmember for mounting and mounts. E28 manual pedal box with master cylinder, bottle, clutch line. Single mass flywheel with almost new clutch. Matching driveshaft for E28 fitment. This is a full manual conversion kit for E28s, if I missed any parts in the list they will be included, or specified otherwise. This setup was in my car and running without issue. One lady owner, never thrashed. $2200 or make me an offer. I may sell parts individually depending on interest and what is offered. This will all be available in about 4-6 weeks time. More detailed photos will come around then if a sale is not confirmed. Pickup from Onehunga. Can post if buyer arranged shipping.
  3. Despite having a decent amount of spares, a good E28 in-tank fuel pump is not something I have. (I do have an E34 one, that *should* work) So I'm looking to upgrade to an OEM+ type solution as that appears to be cheaper than a standard OEM pump. Thoughts on this? https://catuned.com/walbro-fuel-pump-genuine-install-kit Or any other suggestions?
  4. Wanting to buy 885 head, intake manifold, ecu out of m20b25, centre console for e28 manual. Live in tauranga but will travel or pay postage.
  5. Looking for an e28 right front fender. rust free example preferred. in tauranga but will buy anywhere north island
  6. looking for an elusive e28 moonroof, mine is almost rusted through, If there is not one around I'm looking for the regular sunroof internals as I already have the top outer lid but no under frame etc.
  7. I've isolated the source of my disappointment. The rear (aftermarket) muffler on my 525e is, positively depressing. It sounds terrible, doesn't fit perfectly enough for me, rattles and looks less than ideal. This needs fixing. I've taken it off, and it sounds amazing without a rear muffler. However it has the occasional nasty vibration and is according to my phone, too loud. But man it sounds good (even for a lowly eta). So I'd like something that retains the character of a straight pipe, but lowers the volume and returns the touch of class a classic BMW should have. And some nice tips wouldn't go amiss either (got a swanky hartge dual to oval tip I'd like to try). I'm happy to buy individual parts and design/weld/asssemble any pipe work.
  8. I have some long overdue work to do to my trusty daily. It's a manual 525e circa 1987 in citrusblau. Not so worried about external colour matching but the interior is blue, and I'd prefer to avoid doing a wholesale interior change... then again, most of it's coming out so I'd look at it. Mechanicals are mostly all great. I need body and interior parts. Namely: Straight bonnet Rust free sunroof Drivers doorcard A good dash would be awesome but, then I'd quite like it if my hair would grow back too. #hendentures Gear lever mechanism complete. I understand that Z3 ones work? Full carpet set Headlining Tail lights Bonus points: Mesh rims would be a bonus (can't remember the type no.). Bilstein suspension Medium case LSD Drivers lights Bigger brakes that will fit and still allow a range of rims I need to 'panel and paint' the car so the bonus items may not make the budget and are less of a priority If you have a rust free, (or close to it) car with mechanical issues i.e. bad motor/box etc.. that has a nice interior I'd readily look at that. I'm in Dunedin too btw. Hit me up. Cheers, Tom
  9. Renaming this thread as I should probably discuss everything... I need to refresh all of my suspension components. I'm thinking along the lines of OEM+/M5 spec. I'm thinking of purchasing the garagistic adjustable subframe kit to install on my M535i subframe (and then install that in my 525e). Has anyone had any experience with these or similar kits? https://store.garagistic.com/bmw-performance-parts/bmw-5-series-parts/Garagistic-e38-bmw-bushings-parts/Complete-camber-toe-correction-kit
  10. So I bought my first car on the week end, but it needs a bit of work... It's a 1985 Bronzit 525e that is half way through a manual swap, it's got manual windows and sunroof but that just means less things to break (I hope). It's a bit of a mess at the moment, most of the center console is taken apart and there is no gearbox or driveshaft in it. The previous owner has done most of the electronics and put the pedal box in.
  11. So I'm at a bit of an impasse with what to do with my E28s, specifically my M535i. It's an ex-UK car. It's got surface rust in most places, a dent in the sill, wavy floors, cracked seat base and structural rust in the following places: All 4 corners of the sills, including jacking points falling off Foot wells Windscreen surrounds front and rear (including a hole in the roof in the rear wind screen seal mount) Boot seal Spare wheel well Door hinges Rear arches, including where they meet the sill Where the right sill joins the floor Tail light mounts Corners of the boot As far as I see it, I have 5 options Sell both E28s and buy something modern and troublesome, like an M3/5 Spend a lot of money with a panel beater to get it fixed. I'm guessing at least $10k and then some Re-shell it into my 525e Buy another M30 shell (not so keen on this one as most E28s are pretty rusty now) Buy another M535i Option 3, whilst it kinda breaks my heart pulling apart a fairly original 525e, I can do for next to no cost and in fact selling off the lower spec parts would pay for the cert. Plus it's still "my first car" then. (Oh and black plates FTW) A re-shell also allows me to have full creative license without feeling like a heathen. (Pfeba front lip, BBS boot spoiler, Mtech flares, worked M90 with ITBs, whatever else I feel like) Thoughts?

    1985 525e

    Time to get realistic about selling my e28. I'll update this as things come to mind. As much as it pains me, I need to sell this, as it doesn't quite fulfill what I want from a daily or a weekend car (IE. jack of all, master of none. Not sensible enough for a daily, not silly enough for a weekender). Also it should be keep original, which again doesn't fit with my OEM+ end goal for my cars. If I had the space I would keep it, but I don't so it needs to find a new loving home. I have several spare parts that I can include via negotiation (I still have another E28), including a spare getrag 260 (needs some attention, won't go into 5th) Asking $7.5k ono (fairly hard to value) Project thread here: Car jam here: https://carjam.co.nz/car/?plate=mo9445 Facts: Fresh WOF and Reg last month Converted to manual with a getrag 260 (started by PO) 162XXXKms Bronzitbeige Metallic Perlbeige interior 3.64 medium case diff rear sway bar (my understanding is 525e's didn't have them factory) Manual sunroof that works NZ New Pros: Low KM, mostly original, quite tidy Classic black plates Incredibly tidy interior for it's age, no rips or tears Hasn't left me stranded (unlike my E46 haha) Central looking works perfectly Cons: Clear coat is a bit sad in places Some scratches and dents, character if you like Rust on bonnet vents, sunroof, some on the doors (these are all "they all do that"), comparatively it's low rust Input shaft bearing (well at least that's my diagnosis) quite loud under load. ICV doesn't really work, I assume it did at one point though Needs the correct thermostat housing for the dash temp gauge plug Work done within the last 2000km: Fuel filter and some fuel line Oil filter Oil change Fresh coolant Air filter Intake elbow Tail light gaskets Transmission mounts Transmission output shaft and selector seals Redline MTL Valve adjustment New spark plugs 1 tyre Front sway bar links Battery Accessory belts (both) Rocker cover gasket (to be installed) Lower rubber shifter boot Clutch fork pivot pin Clutch Slave cylinder Heavy duty clutch Throw out bearing Pilot bearing Resurfaced single mass flywheel Various shifter bushes Ignition switch (brand new, but US model so no fancy indicator park lights, could be modded back in)

  14. Hey Bimmersporters, Looking for an e28 m30 single mass flywheel if anyone has one lying around?!.... lighter the better Also if anyone has some super cheep 16/17/18" wheels and tyres to fit an e30 that would be mint? Cheers Ace
  15. Genuine Momo steering wheel boss kit for late type E28 and E30s. Should also fit E34, possible E36 etc as to my knowledge the steering wheels interchange (though this could be a case like my diff so do your own research). Model number 2006. $80. Pickup from Panmure or can post for $10 (non rural).
  16. Early '82 E28 medium case 3.45 open diff. Won't work on anything accept 81, 82 spec E28s, so it's useless really. Not even sure why you are looking at it. Good condition, came out of running car. Internals might be useful to E30 guys. $100 or make an offer. Pick up from Onehunga.
  17. E28 tow bar, genuine BMW part. Bolt in, will need holes drilled for bolts but no cutting required. All parts are there including plug for lights. Wires will need to be spliced in. $200. Pick up from Panmure.
  18. Brand new in wrapping Febi Bilstein pair of sub frame bushes for E28, also fit E24 and E23. Was going to use for my reshell but not going ahead. $80. Pickup from Panmure or can post at buyer's expense.
  19. My e28 is soon to be getting a M30B35. As most of you will have seen, I got a donor e34 with a good M30 and manual gearbox that's done 170,000 kms which will be going in. Engine, gearbox etc came out of the e34 over the weekend. Have been collecting parts over the last couple of weeks including Mtech rear spoiler, arches, and parts to repair some damage on the front from getting hit (working with the guy's insurance to sort it). Also just installed AP springs about a week ago. The car as it is now: Some of the damage: I'm pretty rubbish at build threads but I'll do my best to update as I go for those interested. Hoping to have the swap done by the end of April.

    15x7 Style 5s 5x120

    15x7 Style 5 wheels 5x120. Set of four. All in good condition. Only three center caps. $250. Pickup from Panmure or Papakura.
  21. Before I pull my LSD diff apart to change the ring gear, does anyone have an E28/E24/E23 large case LSD diff with a ratio of 3.46 or higher that they would either sell or trade for my 3.07? May consider medium case E30 diffs depending on price. Can do cash your way, again depending on the diff. Not interested in non LSD or anything not bolt in, because I have a non bolt in solution already. Looking for an easy option. I'm in Auckland but don't mind dealing with shipping.
  22. Currently undertaking some remedial work on my E28. Which has involved taking the guards off. What is the best way to remove the goopy sealant stuff and then what do I replace it with when I reattach the guard? Also, I need to touch up the rocker panel protective coating and the rubberised underbody sealant. What should I use here (For each since I'm assuming they require different, but similar products)
  23. So i will be converting my m20 powered e28 to m30b35(from e34 92') but our mot needs abs to it so what im asking is what do i need to make abs work. My e28 will have e34 front/rear stuff so i can fit its abs sensors. I also need abs pump still but what abs pumps can i use? Do i need especially the 535 abs pump or can i use something like 525 farm(there is one locally). And something about wiring process would be nice too.
  24. Hi Team, Does anyone have a car trailer suitable for an E28 I can borrow? For free or otherwise. Braked would be preferable. Ideally from Friday 29th evening to Saturday 30th Evening. Cheers
  25. E24 chrome mirror for passenger side. Chrome is in good condition as is the glass. Little bit of surface corrosion on inside of base but won't be seen when mounted, this is normal. $150 or make me an offer. Currently pick up only from Panmure.
