Thanks mate,
Had a small delivery the other day, not 100% happy with the alignment but this was more of a tester than anything else, I'll order another one now I know I like it

Yesterday was a good day, myself and my friend decided it was time to make it louder so we set about achieving that goal. I'll let the pictures do the talking

I must be getting old, I have decided that the new exhaust is just far to loud on cold start, its actually a little embarrassing its that loud, once warm it sounds amazing but I think I will have to try something else to satisfy my exhaust needs

So, some of you may know I have had a recent death in the family, girlfriends 28 year old brother. Heads been a little messed up but I have kind of defaulted to what I know which is taking stuff to pieces.
Started on my intake to see what state it was in, common n54 issue caused by being direct injection, fuel no longer passes over the inlet valves which effectively 'washes' them. This is their current state
Image

Image
As you can see, not great, spoken to a few garages who can walnut blast them for around £350 but they are also quite a distance from me so I will have to consider this.

In other news my big mod has arrived!!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Pretty good fit, couple of areas that need adjusting but the bodyshop can do that, I'll be speaking to them tomorrow, should look great once the grills are in place and it's all painted! Also have a splitter for it but having just been out for a quick drive I did catch 1 speed hump so I think I'll leave it off.

1M bumper looks awesome mate, I wasn't a fan til I saw it on yours! I've been looking at Barry's stuff on ebay, he does quite a few carbon fibre bits as well and he's very well priced.

P.S. sorry to hear the bad news mate, hope you're ok

Had a very unexpected bargain today, browsing eBay last night I found a coral red interior 40 miles from me at a very low price, seller sent me some pictures and made the mistake of saying he needed them gone asap as they were in the way. I made a silly low offer and to my shock he accepted, off to Leeds I went this morning to collect them, in need a proper good scrubbing as they have been in a container for a while and were very dusty and grimy. Started to swap the leather off the new seats onto my old frames as my old seat are full electric as opposed to part electric, the connections are also different underneath.
From this

To this

Hoping to have everything swapped over at the weekend.

Now brings me to a guilty pleasure...... I quite like the bonnet vents on this

So this is what £276 looks like to bmw

New coil on the left

Hopefully this will cure a slight misfire at idle that was annoying the hell out of me,
I also fitted some small missing trim clips and covers in the boot, changed the horrid marked grey plastic trim in the boot to nice clean black :D
