  1. Great news, thanks. I'm sold on the black now. I've noticed BMW tax, but the N52 engine is solid and the Haynes repair manual is good.
  2. Hey folks, Have any of you guys used one of the headliner repair guys in Sydney? The headliner in my BMW is knackered and my attempts to glue it up are not only failing but making matters worst because the glue makes the liner heavier. Looks like some places will replace foam and liner for under $200 which seems like a good deal.
  3. Yeah I dig the Impuls.
  4. Hi Ali! Welcome!
  5. Welcome! Stag looks clean! Any more pics?
  6. We don't allow editing of the posts because we've had people change the descriptions in the past to get around not sending/selling the parts as expected. What do you want changed?
  7. While I'm not usually one to be a smart arse with new members, you haven't even told us the car model/year let alone the actual headlight (high/low beam). This is a ridiculous question.
  8. Howdy and welcome! Can't help too much with where to source a donk, but I can say that its generally less than $1k to ship a car interstate (at least it used to be) so you might be pleasantly surprised at the cost. That said, getting something local will be far better for you.
  9. Thats another reason for me wanting the black, light headliners and pillars get so grubby and you wont notice on the black. Is it 3 or 5 door? My car is 4 door with a sunroof.
  10. Thanks @Steve85 I watched a bunch of videos on Youtube and have decided to give it a go myself also. I think besides getting the headliner in/out of the damn car the rest will be straight forward. I'm looking forward to giving it a go and even more looking forward to having a black interior. That said, my wife reckons having black headliner and pillars will be a bit dark and heavy in the car. What do you think? I reckon it'll look fantastic. Good idea about buying another liner. I could trim that one and then swap them.
  11. Yeah they are one of the quotes. $540.
  12. So, I could quite easily switch to black too. Then I could just plastidip my trim (handles, light surrounds etc). https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Black-Car-Roof-Lining-Headliner-Upholstery-Foam-Headlining-Fabric-1-51M-x-2-2M/222578662525?hash=item33d2b8dc7d:g:rjkAAOSwvvBapKFt
  13. Yep, I reckon I will. I'll do all pillars too. I'm just worried about it being a problem again in future. Maybe I'll just carbon wrap them.
  14. First two quotes are over $500!!!
  15. I reckon its awesome for $2k. Hopefully body, suspension and structure is ok, then you can save to drop an RB25 or RB26 into it later.
  16. It doesn't get more proper than this. Car looks amazing! I definitely think you need to add a build thread for this. Seriously gorgeous colour!
  17. Welcome Robin! What do you drive?
  18. Welcome to ! Car looks great! Any more pics?
  19. Its long overdue, I've put it off for long enough, but very soon we will be undergoing a massive update of the site to Invision 4. Invision is who we use for the forums and main components of SAU. Some addons are 3rd party (timeslips, spy, trader ratings, etc). The version of Invision we're using is no longer supported at all and the few bugs I've raised with them lately have not been fixed. I've been testing the process of upgrading on an external development server and it is very solid but also seriously time consuming with the latest test update of BASE forums functionality taking several hours. The soft date for initiating the update is this Friday at around 7pm. Things you need to know; Things will be a little different when you first log on after the update. The update is worth it with many very positive features being added. We'll be starting with a single theme initially but will be settling on a second (dark) theme in the weeks following the update. There will be hiccups! We request that you stay patient and log your bugs and problems in this thread. Supporter options (subscriptions) will be disabled from mid week (Wednesday) and will likely be the last feature to be updated (as we will be migrating subscriptions to a new system to work with Invision 4.) Ask questions in here. Thanks.
  20. I wonder why your supporter logo isn't displaying. I'll look into that. I'm trying to get the Tapatalk guys to add the functionality to hide ads for supporter users. The 'no ads' was never for the app because we didn't have this control. I did mention it in the contrib thread but thats not good enough, it should be in the shop. Either way, I'm going to disable them because they dont make much anyway. I'll dig into your issues with the Tapatalk support guys.
  21. Hey Rob, Yep, had to add more ads to the app and the site in order to try and get more funds. SAU is like a 3rd child atm, needs to be fed and has school fees. What phone are you on?
  22. @HansOrph Thanks for reminder. Picks added. Carn Rats!

  23. Come on peeps. We need a 'post your evo' thread. I love these things and would love to have one as my daily. But alas, I must live vicariously through you guys.
