  1. Also, the multifunction steering came originally for cars with 6 speakers (including the 2 small ones on the A pillars). If there are no speakers on the A pillars, multifunction steering may have been installed locally.
  2. If you are looking for a 2016/2017 car, you will find only 1L F grade or Jewela cars as the tax to import a 1.3L is prohibitive. However, there are a few 2011/2012 P130 1.3L cars around.
  3. The OP wanted to know whether a delay of around 6 months can affect/damage the car. I just wanted to reassure him.
  4. The car was manufactured in November 2018, I purchased it through USS auctions with 5km on the clock in June 2019. There was some shipping delay and finally took delivery in August 2019.
  5. I don't think there will be any major issues though the situation is not ideal. This kind of delay is common when importing zero milage cars from Japan. When I imported my car, the delay was around 10 months. However, there can be some issues such as flat spots on tires.
  6. Patience. If you want a mint condition E30, you will have to wait until an enthusiast sells one. No guarantee that it will happen within the month or within the year. E30 is a great car but even the latest models are 30 years old. As for any old BMW expect repairs and waiting for parts to arrive but the availability of parts is not too bad especially for the fuel injected ones. The ones with M10 e carburettor engine maybe more difficult to maintain as mechanics who know how to maintain these are hard to find though the engine itself is bullet proof and even used in F1 in the 80's. May not be the ideal first car. More of a project car given the age and time and money required to maintain in good condition.
  7. If the car came with internal TPMS sensors, the sensor can get damaged when you use the temporary tyre repair liquid. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the sensor if this has been attempted.
  8. Not that it's too complex. It's just that sourcing parts will be difficult, people trained to work on these are rare and most of the plastic and rubber bits would have aged and deteriorated/become brittle leading to even a simple repair taking a long time due to delays in sourcing parts and finding skilled labour.
  9. Yes. You should get it replaced soon. You don't want a blowout especially at highway speeds. It's recommended to replace both tyres on an axle rather than just one tyre. What is the tread depth of the other tyre and the year of manufacture? If it's practically new you may be able to get away with just replacing the damaged one but have to be cautious when the tread depth of the old one becomes less than 3mm as the car may spin out of control in wet conditions at speed as the one with less tread depth may loose grip due to aquaplaning.
  10. Your tyres are most probably unidirectional. Just move the front tyres to the rear and rear tyres to the front at every service. Don't switch sides. This will keep the tyre wear even. Otherwise the front tyres will wear out faster. As the tyres are nearly new anyway and the replacement is also an expensive one, I guess it's best to treat them all as equal and carry on with rotation to maximize the lifespan. As the other 3 tyres are not worn much you will not notice any difference. If you are paranoid, take a look at the tires of busses vans and lorries on the road. They will have 4 different brands of varying tread depth at the 4 corners and still manage to survive most of the time!
  11. It's best to replace both tyres on an axle with a good quality cheaper brand. Similar tyres with same tread depth on each axle will not cause any issues in handling under normal circumstances unless you plan to take it to a track day! Rotate tyres as usual to get the maximum life. It's always best to change both tyres on an axle.
  12. Yes. Been there done that. Just follow the menu from steering wheel controls. There are YouTube videos to guide you.
  13. Yes, the language can be changed from the menu without any issue. There are YouTube video's as well for guidance.
  14. It's a pleasure mate. Good choice. CHR is probably the best value for the permit and a much nicer car than the regular Toyotas with a nice interior and great handling. Gives decent gas mileage too as long as you keep the revs down. Happy motoring!
