I think they may be marginally cheaper from ca automotive but depends what size you want.

You can get cheap bolts from eBay but I wanted black ones with a 'nose' on the end.

Polarised bolts I bought separately. Will post some pics later in week.
Cheers for this Nick. I have no idea what sizes i need with the offsets of my wheels. I guess im best speaking with a supplier and they will advise me.

To be honest I doubt if they will be able to advise. Trial and error I'm afraid!

Just had a quick read up. It appears 75mm will take up to a 12mm spacer. 90mm you need at least a 5mm spacer for it to work.

Im thinking of an open ended bolt as i want the studs to sit proud of the bolt so it seems 90mm is best for that.

Def open ended bolts, but remember the wheel you have will alter the look. The depth if the wheel will effect the poke so to speak.

Oops !

Was awaiting stock of perf splitter replacements to arrive and teddy to organise pick up, and this happened,



Mailed teddy to tell him of the run in, more out of courtesy than anything, and I'm hoping it won't be a problem. To me the spoiler is scrap, I mean look at the fitment/ quality!?



Bit concerned when he replied he was going to get it re laquered! I certainly wouldnt of fancied buying this one ( even before the run in with my gym equipment in the garage, doh!)

Sure Teddy wouldn't have resold it. Anyway fingers crossed this dosnt make a difference to my situation. Removed it and looks better without I think?!



I will add perf splitters ( hopefully from teddy as planned!), if not 2nd hand oem.

Particularly boring update but fitted new front jacking blocks, not sure where they go but my 335d had some missing to!


Been a few weeks running odd roundels but decided on cf white / silver so fitted the matching pair. Keeps a more oem feel than the all black ones I think.


Fitted my rear m3 badge. Looking at my rear roundel think its a front! I've got so many laying around no sure which one goes where now! Anyone confirm what size a rear e92 rear roundel is?




And very pleased with my side vent badges. Was going to pull of the original ones but as I have carbon covers it was recessed. Gave me the idea of sticking over top. Really pleased as makes the covers look much better.



Had a look at my remote retractable front flip plate but think I'll get my friend to look at that one for me!


And my stud conversion and polarised nuts.



You dont actually see much of the bolts, just the tops. Studs will stick through a bit. Will wait until the bbs arrive before I fit these. Picked up 2 new 265,30 20 for the rears. Will swop the fronts of current 20s as brand new.

Retractable plate looks interesting, where did you purchase this from Nick and what's the cost? Not light, I assume!

Oh and as always, I'm drooling all over my iPad .... AGAIN!

From states. £120 iirc. Not sure what you mean by ' not light'? It doesn't weigh much if this is what you mean!

What I meant was the cost, I.e not light on the wallet.

Was that the total cost or did you get stung by customs/VAT etc? Once I've done everything I may look int this, mind if yo share the website please?

Can't recall where I got them from but search on ebay international and you'll find a number of suppliers.

Also, looking at your shortened Number plate... where oh where did you get them cut from? Still can't find a place for this.. I want to remain with legal spacing but have it shortened, mine's 6 digit.

My boot from teddy fit terribly and cost me a bomb to have correctly fitted, adjusted and painted.

Those studs and nuts look gorgeous!!! Where did you get them from mate?

Can't recall, but type short or small number plate into eBay and options come up. Either that or google. Plenty of options.

Wouldn't say avoid. Happy with all other bits and he is sorting my issue out still.

He's mailed today to say will still swop. Many wouldn't!

I think you do pay for what you get and the spoiler was cheap.

I think the rear badge may be a front one! No curve at all. Going to order a new one !

Little package arrived,



Some exceptionally rubbish pics,

Here's a rear with my stud conversion sitting about where it would with bolt on spacers.




Is t to much? It was always my plan to run more stud poke on the rears.

Front and rear shot,



With less stud poke on the front,



Just about make out what they would look like,
