I paid £170 I think. Matches roof weave and good quality. Not sure of rrp as part of the package but sure he would do discount for a forum member !

The wrap on that, thats fantastic. you have taken a car which was born with great proportions, and then highlighted all the accents and grooves.

I know you will miss the 35d it was a great concept and a stunning car but this. This is something you can, grab a chair sit down and admire.

Defo ask Sam to get get some High res pics. and if you guys meet up again. I wanna come down!!! lol.

Lovely

Think it may be a bit far for you Andy ( Essex ?)

Suspension drama roles on,

Went and looked myself today and see the issues.

The original shock looks to be a 10mm Ish shaft and nut!



The new shaft is approx 15mm



The kit they sent at the second attempt is the right stuff but wrong sizes as all to small, it's not big enough to go other the shaft above!



So,basically the sleeve would need to fit within the oem mount but would need to be big enough to go over the 15mm shaft. The obviously the washers would need to have a 15mm plus hole and the nuts be the appropriate size.

Bc racing are a bit Jekyll and Hyde and go from being narky to nice. They are still telling me the kit is right for an e92 and an e93 m3, but to me that's impossible as the oem shaft is much smaller than that provided, ergo it would never fit with oem parts! The 15mm shaft won't physically fit through the current oem top mount.

They have emailed the manufacturers and are trying to resolve the issue?

Whilst I got no where close to be where I wanted to be by today I did get a few things done,
Stripped a load of the interior, sprayed some panels ( the grey ones) decided it wasn't happy with the finish so wiped of and re fitted. Thinking a dye, brush method may be the way forward for the remaining grey leather.

Did fit my carbon handbrake cover and alcantara boot, although needs a bit of tweaking, happy with it.



Also fitted my weighted performance bmw knob and boot. Once again a quick fit but happy with alcantara. Knob however not as weighted as I would have liked but feels much better being lower.

Random shot,



I have pedal covers and mats with themed 'm' logo will be in place.





Happy with interior, just need to sort the grey and then will be done......I think :muttley::muttley:

I'd be surprised if the same kit that fits an e92 fits an E92 M3.

The Bilstein PSS10 kit is different from that of the M3,as are most manufacturers kits.

Axle loads vary on the Bilstein kit between E92 and E92 M3 just for starters.

Sorry, I meant fits an e92 m3 and a e93 m3. The replacement parts they sent were for a e92 standard which Clearly were never going to fit!
