Well I have 'partially' sorted out my battery issue...

The guys @ Newcastle Auto Electrics have only just started stocking Bosch batteries, they were accidentally supplied the S3 (lower CCA and suited for early 90's cars with minimal electrics) by Bosch and since I was literally their first bosch customer they were unfamiliar with the product range.

They called Bosch and then had the S5 sent out and the guys swapped it over today for me when it arrived.



Bosch battery guide: http://www.bosch.com.au/content/lang...roch_Final.pdf

So it was $190 fitted with 3 years warranty, pretty good value imo!

So now I just have to get the new battery coded, hopefully by my friendly bmw dealer under the premium complimentary servicing package

I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for, but at the end of the day I believe in gaining the best BFYB also!

Well a few small updates.

Splurged and purchased a new bonnet badge as the original had a few small blemishes



And a set of rim badges also



Alca Blades as the existing blades are quite noisy



(the car was only serviced 3 months ago I'm at a loss how BMW didn't sieze the opportunity to replace them and charge their usual inflated bmw inflated replacement parts price)

A new set of plates (as I have to re-rego the car since I purchased it in Vic)



Picked up some BMS spacers & DCI





Ipod Y Lead ($10 HK ebay special!)

And finally a Procede V5 is in transit!



I shall purchase a set of AR DP's & LUX angel eyes from BMR Autowerkes shortly (and possibly a bmw performance SSK) & then have the car tuned

I have been awaiting for a set of used BS RF's to arrive to basically get my car passed for inspection, and am sick of waiting for them!

I have been thinking of selling the RF's off and going with a set of Goodyear asymetric 2's



http://www.goodyear.com.au/dotCMS/Ty...&from=nPerPage

http://www.jaxquickfit.com.au/blog/2...symmetric-2-2/

I have owned michelin PS & Conti Sports Contacts, and both were great tyres and these have recently taken out the motor mag tyre of the year award so they can't be too bad...

Just wondering how a 265/30 will go with 15mm spacers for clearance....

I had F1 A2 in my another car and F1 A2 is awesome...very quiet tyres and good in dry and wet !! it has good thread rating too....That will be my next set but currently still on RFT potenza re050a.

When are you gonna get them and where? I believe the prices here are crazy ! especially in 19's
