  1. So, theres a few of us here who no longer have Japanese vehicles, so, lets see what you've got! I have two VWs; a B6 TDI Passat wagon and a Bora 4Motion V6. Both cars are very cool, I love them! The Bora has a surprising amount of squirt (150kw) and handles really well (I put Bilstein B8's in it.) The Passat is less lumber-like that I thought it would be. Its still very 'soft' in how it goes about things, but thats what makes it a perfect family car. Its totally unexciting. I'll post pics soon.
  2. Hi All, This is going to be my restoration thread. It might turn into a build thread in the future if I get the car to a good place where I can start upgrading and not fixing. Last week I picked up my E90 330i with only 50,000k's on it. I'm totally in love with it but there are a number of things that need my attention. I haven't got many pics yet. The body and mechanical are immaculate. It has a solid service history from BMW and its only bits and pieces causing me grief. Here is my current list of things to fix; The seal/trim around the rear window has disintegrated The same around the windscreen also Both front door seals are falling apart The rear passenger window won't go up when put the whole way down - looks to be catching on something and triggering the anti-pinch Bluetooth not working (MULF) - i have bought a BT interface to use in the interim Headlight washers don't go the whole way in and the passenger fell out when I was looking at them the other day. I'm scared to use them in case it falls out on the road. Drivers side cup holder does not come out without some persuasion. Boot struts are gone (have already ordered new ones after almost being killed by my boot) The electric rear sunshade has broken in one of the arms. It looks like a big inflatable person when I put it up, limbs everywhere When I'm happy with those being fixed I'm going to consider; Wheels. Some M-Sport ones maybe. Mine are ok but a bit too tucked for my liking and I don't want to use spacers New sport front seats. The current seats are in great nic and do a good job but lacking a little in support. Something with iDrive. The screen is pretty nice but it does bugger all. Maybe an after market reverse cam or even a new interface or something. I believe the car was not used by passengers, or at least not regularly. The only floor mat missing from the car is the drivers one and the others look mint. The passenger seat was super hard like it hadn't been used and theres no evidence of the rear seats having much use either. This meant that the passenger seat belt was putrid with mould. It took lots of hot water, car wash and vinegar to get it looking presentable. The pics don't do it justice. It was thick enough to stop the belt bending properly.

  5. So, before I start, I'm not naive. I'm aware of the negativity surrounding used car warranties and I've been bitten by them myself in the past. But, are the tides turning? For example, AWN has some really good reviews on Product Review. We're considering a used X5. I've done lots of research, spoken to lots of people and I'm aware of the risks. I'm definitely not going into this blindly. But, when looking at one on CarSales.com.au the other day, there was an ad for Redbook used car Warranty. It was pretty well priced with the mack daddy option costing $2100 for a 3 year warranty (max claim $8k). I kinda feel like $2100 would not cover an X5 8 speed box but $8k might. Considering the reviews for AWM, maybe its worth getting one of these warranties in the event of massive failure. Granted I don't expect small breaks to be covered but gearbox, air suspension, engine, etc. having them covered in a good solid, no backing-out warranty could be worth the outlay. (Note I cannot get the AWM warranty as the car would be too old, hence the references to Redbook.) Opinions? Any first hand experiences?
