I know theres a few kiwis on this site. I've started a local BMW forum at http://e30.d2g.com/forum
We are growing fairly steadily which is good.
It seems a bit easier to do things on a local forum rather than annoy these canadian boys on maxbimmer with our problems all the time
Even though it says E30 car club its open to all BMWs and people. We are based in Auckland as are the majority of our members (hey the majority of new zealand ). I basically started it also because i've found the BMWCC a bit "exclusive" and an old boys rich club.
