In no way did I have to use the part number to look up what they were (they're juggling skittles, right?).

I get a slight misfire every now and then. Because the engine is so smooth you really notice it when it happens. It's something I really should get round to looking at.

Coming along nicely now, Adam. It's certainly had some money thrown at it.

They can be effective juggling sticks ;) the new coils are very different when you compare the old and new, the new ones fit a lot tighter as well.
Yeah some money has gone into this as it does with all the cars I own, but I don't drink and I don't smoke...and a 0% credit card helps :lol: but gunna have to calm it down a little now and pay off the credit card and start looking for a house.
Currently got my old interior on eBay and it's struggling at the minute, including all speakers, seat belt assistants I've started it at £250, very little bolster wear, reckon that's too much?

Well the money and hard working is certainly paying off.

A house? Get it all done while you can still afford it! :D

It seems more than reasonable to me. I think the main issue might be that it isn't heated (if it was I'd be trying to find the cash having it off you!)They seem to shift much more quickly. You could try putting it on E90 post as well. Stuff seems to sell quite quickly on there.

I've literally just put it on e90 post, I think the black puts some people off, most people want red or brown etc

When you say you changed the horrible grey trim in the boot to black, do you mean the plastic at where the boot lid comes down onto the boot? If so, where did you get the black version?

Well, she's gone for paint today, looking forward to getting her back all 1 colour!
On another note I think I'm about to have impending high pressure fuel pump failure, had a couple of error codes when having a spirited drive, sometimes comes in sometimes doesn't, will wait for it to get worse before doing anything, £600 for a pump and £2000 for injectors if/when they fail!!!

HPFP and injector failure is my worst fear with the E92. It's the reason why I took out an extended warranty when I got my car. Have you got one on yours? I've seen some tutorials on replacing and coding the injectors yourself which can save you quite a bit of money. You just need INPA. Hopefully it will be something less costly though.

i elected not to take out a warranty as I knew I would be modifying it, when they fail I fully inted to fix it myself and save money that way.

Nothing major to report other than ordering a new steering wheel from jack at royal steering wheels, should be here in time for fuelled :D
Also had a trip to Doncaster to pick up some genuine black window trims and black headliner.
Was fun getting it in the car for the drive home :lol:
I'll try to post some pictures when I have it fitted.
