Hey everybody! now with pictures!!

Hey everyone, been a member on here a while now but this is my first post, just been lurking really & taking some advice off other post's.

I know I will get slated but I have a 2011 320d, around a month and a half now & have fallen in love with it. car feels slow compared to my other car but at 64k it feels alot more solid than my old astra vxr which was at 38k enough said about vauxhall.. it's a "sport plus" which to me says m sport with leather (this may be me just summing it up) and i am sure others know the differences, which if someone wants to detail I would be happy to hear & learn some more about my car.

anyway since having the car I have done a couple of bits & these are very minute

some new number plates
black kidney grills
white interior lights
white sidelights to get rid of the yellow (all lights from horizon Zain is a top bloke for anyone interested)

I am looking to see how it is possible to get a twin tailpipe on the one side opposed to the oval, think the 335 has this? can anyone help or shed any light?
thanks in advance.
and that's it folks i'll get some pictures up as soon as my camera connects!











hope you like the pictures! they are a result of a massive clean from today! a good bit of winter prep, pre wash,two bucket method, Clay bar, two coats of polish (super resin & ultra deep shine), finished off with some hd wax! just need to find a decent wheel sealer if anyone has any ideas I'm open for them

All comments welcome


Shaun

Welcome to the forum mate!

Sounds like you have begun on your slippery slope

Unfortunately i cannot shed much light on the exhaust part.. but it sounds simple enough.

Happy Modding

cheers for all the reply's may not of been this forum but one I was looking at people were getting nothing but hate for having a 320d and not a 335 or even 330 so I thought I would soften the blow haha.

Yeah that slippery slope is a pain at times, my audi a4 had promise of std car but nope... air and 3sdms to start then the vxr came along & a lot of money later & aprox 300bhp later I need to save some money in fuel... so best of both now, fair amount of grunt (184bhp model) & some half decent fuel the other half can't moan :L

cheers for the link I will have a look and see what they say about mine.

Not sure that's the case on here. The only thing people seem to have against the 320d is the timing chains which are known the fail occasionally. I think this was sorted in the later models though.

if you want the 335 style exhaust that is one on each side.
or you can go for the 330 style exhaust which is 2pipes on the left side

If you go the 330 route you wont need a new diffuser and will porbably cost you around 60 for the whole thing

if you go 335. you will need to buy a new diffuser which is around 80 i think and the custom back box to have one on each side. Roughly around 250 depends where your from.

Look at my threads ive went from 330 to 335.

Thanks for the replies, it was the 330 I was more towards not the 335, however I like the idea ash has gone for with the power flow tip. If I was to go 330 route though would I just need the backbox, no other sections?

Also after a set of dark lines to for the right money. Presuming these will be plug and play? Or will these (like most other things) need coding??

you can have it however you like depending on what your going for, performance or looks, if its looks then yes you just need the back box or i think places can just chop your oval tip off these days and weld a twin tip

if performance you can get full exhaust system...not cheap

I think ive got a 330d back box lying around in good nick, no damage to tips.

Hey Shaun...good of you to join up.
Double exhaust can be done 1 of 2 ways...modify your existing back box ie chop off the tail pipe and weld on a double or change the whole back box...chop it off and weld or clamp back on a back box from a 325/330...which ever is cheapest I'd say.

i'll be honest im not to fussed about the performance as the car is quick enough for what im using it for it's not going around any tracks & have my 600 for when im wanting a speed rush :L
so the 330 seems like the better/cheaper alternative for me. the 330d box will fit straight onto the 320?? & how much do you want for it cupraraj?? drop me a message if its easier

Car looking great after your detail! I use the AG products too, always been happy with them.

I recently used Gtechniq C5 wheel sealant on my new wheels and having done a bit of cleaning today after a long trip, it seems pretty good. When you wet the wheel, the dirt does seem to literally slide off! However, there were some more stubborn black spots which I think may have been tar deposits (?) which still required some elbow grease to remove.

thank you for the comment, took a lot of elbow grease & I gave up going back to the exhaust in the end, damn black tip is a pain in the bum!

sounds like something I will have to have a look for! I have noticed that one of my wheels has a small (less than 1p) size nick near a wheel nut (guessing caught it with a socket for where it is on the wheel) which I am going to need sorting soon maybe wait and powder coat them in the near future.. will look into the sealant though!

you did yeah, sorry, I was trying to see if anyone knew about the 330d fitting direct or would more parts need changing (sorry if that is something I missed)

I have an XJ6N (not the quickest or best looking bike out there) but by far one of the most fun bikes I have had but this is my biggest so could justify that I guess..

will try to get a pic of it up soon, gone abit street fighter on it, rental braced bars, full titanium arrow system, rear hugger, braided hose's and some different pegs (pictures will follow) just a shame that the weather has started to turn thus putting an end to the bike for me!

for anyone interested this is my old vxr

hope you like
