pictures dont lie. thats why i asked my friend to come from work 5 mins away to come quickly with his camera phone. the camera lens's on both of my phones are scratched to hell, and i knew his phone was virtually brand new (really expensive Sony Ericson phone/walkman/cybershot all in one)

the guy i spoke to was just about to change the sign when i caught him and i took the photo of the sign i saw (hence the scotch tape sitting on top of the box haha). if id gone to get him or whatever then i wouldnt have been able to get a photo. a camera is the one thing my swiss army knife (which i use every day) doesnt have that i need lol

it says something.. im not sure. this sign was blatantly put over the top of it though. the one on the other ticketing machine had a sticker over the top of that sign saying 4 instead of 3. i was going to go in the other lane, but there was a drain hole on one side and a kerb on the other and im not scraping my wheels so i took the lane i did.

there is a difference. the sign on the box was put there by the company that owns the building. it probably has thier name on the sticker as well

Its like heaven lol performs great on the highways and its not slow for its size, its not really loud like you would imagine a v12 would be but I plan to change that, just don't know if I can mod it like the e38 dinan mods, I plan to get a e38 750il too the body looks really nice. I'd get a 750 instead of a 740 my mom's 740 is friggin slow but I just think theres something wrong with her engine it drags too much.
btw how did boot issue go? I went back to the spot I got a ticket and I saw no sign on the side of the street I parked but there was one on the other side -_- but does that even count for both sides of the street?

Sounds good. i will have to test drive when i have the dollars. M50 swap for the E30 is the first priority, unless i get presented with a good deal on an E38. at christmas time i found a Schnitzer 750iL prefacelift in black which the guy wanted to trade for a smaller BMW because he moved to australia on business, but still came back here every few weeks and needed a car. so i thought id be cheeky and ask him if he was interested in a deal with my then virtually stock car. he was, if i could get $1000 cash aswell. i was sooooo surprised, and i would have done the deal no questions asked if i had that amount of cash on hand. Schnitzer E38s you never ever see here, and the guy obviously had no idea of the value of the car. and i could always have brought another E30

i emailed the company last night, but they have not responded as yet. hopefully ill get an email tomorrow (technically today now haha its 0001). i wouldnt know about your problem sorry. it probably depends on the area

Yeah I'd swap the engines before getting an e38 I love them but I'd rather have something smaller and fast right now, I wish I had a e39 or e34 already I need somethin smaller and manual. for the Schnitzer all I can say is damn wish I would run into someone like that.
I didn't realize you were in New Zeland lol it has to be different there than here, Did you call them? I would because sometime emails take too long.
