It's via aidrian flux but it's with a modified car insurer, also cost me £80 to get a days insurance on the new one, as long as everything goes to plan pictures will be up on Sunday if it's not pitch black by the time I get home

Bought a new one!!

It's ace!! The nice policeman didn't think so though!! Got all the way from London to 5miles from home and my e46 that me and my mate went down in decided it needed fuel, pulled in to the services, got fuel and when we pulled onto the short slip road we enthusiastically accelerated onto the a road. Copper reckons we were racing and doing 96mph, I call bullshit, we both never exceeded 85 all the way from London :x

Anyway, needs a couple of minor jobs like hand brake adjusting and a bulb but I love it! Let the transformation begin!

Booked it in for a stage 2 remap on Saturday with 440injectors being added I think there 440.

Reckon it's going to be around 258 to 260 bhp

Also talking about either turbo or supercharger for the spring start at the POD

Anyone up for 1/4 mile

Redish motorsport subframe reinforcement kit.

Can't wait to start stripping it down. Although I know it's going to be painful and difficult to do on axle stands.

Changed the cam cover gasket, was going to changed the spark plugs too but bmw have decided in their infinite wisdom to use stupid fittings on the plugs, gunna order the right tool and change the plugs later.
Having worked on the N54 engine a few times now I can categorically say it's no where near as easy to work on as the M54 engine, but it does put a bigger smile on my face!

Thanks mate. Think I'll need the luck aha. It seems doable, but doable things always end up the hardest with me.

Think the issues I'll have are opening the t20 torx bolts for the prop joining diff and drive shafts. I know I don't have to take the drive shafts off and could try and lower the whole thing as one one whole unit. But I want to take everything apart and clean it all up while it's out.

Oooohh and I think I'll have issues with the exhaust flange bolts. They are always a pain.

Other than that I've done the front part of the prop before, and the trailing arms so hopefully all else should be fine.

Welding will be done by a mates mate. His work is awesome. So I trust his welds.

I'll keep everything picture logged and update it all on my cars thread

Look forward to seeing the progress and pics mate. Great to see an E46 with the dreaded subframe failure being saved too.

I was thinking of breaking it at first and buying another prefacelift to swap all my AC Schnitzer bits over, then thought whats the point, could risk cracking the rear again, sorry will crack the rear again aha. So may aswell save this one.

Ooh do tell! Glad the clubby is staying btw! :D

Not today but Saturday afternoon Jamie kindly fit one of my Christmas presents from the missus, my projector foglights. They fit and look well, just need some brighter white bulbs to match in with the HID headlights as they're the normal yellowy colour. Bulbs should be here in the next day or so, then I'll share some pics :)
