Thanks everyone, I'm mobile again...a bit lighter in the pocket but happy.
The BMW I bought had shredded the alternator drive and I've had to wait for a breaker on the north island to get one down to me. I've also had both tyres replaced as the Gillette finish was no fun on the dirt roads. Tomorrow I'm heading back into the Fjordlands and the Milford Sound. I'll then be taking the 60 km dirt road to Queenstown. I can't upload photos at the moment but I'll post some when I get back.
