I am good mate, was close to get a E46 M instead lol, but i think it'll make much more sense to keep my current car.

I have got a few things wanted to do on mine, think I'll have to prioritise the list first

Hey Mob, yes mate will be sourcing some lowering springs as soon as i can. Was going to go for a full suspension setup but, commuting 400 miles a week on our **** roads doesn't sound to appealing on coilovers!
Did you sell the sub?

You'd be suprised how well the right coilovers can perform on our potridden holes. I was also thinking like you before, and wanted to stay away from coilovers due to having shitty roads. But since then i have sat in a members car which had Ohlins R&T and the damping was amazing. Felt like you were landing on pillows when going over speed bumps. Also if you go with springs/shocks you are left with one set up which you can't adjust.

Nope didn't sell the sub! I might just try and use it somehow....

Might start looking around at options then as you have sold it so well.

car looking good sparky the splitter looks ok but may not be aggressive enough but maybe if u hang on for a while u may get some free carbon fibre bits from one of the race cars when they take each other out of a race lol it may look better once u lower it, hope u get the leak sorted. the next time u wash the car spray mequires quickwax on wipe off leaves a nice shine

What are you doing in the braking department?
A tuned 335i takes a bit of stopping.
And the oem stuff is like chocolate.

Had a spare hour and changed plugs today, still getting the boost code but it does seem to be a shedload quicker on map1. No code thrown on map 1 which is odd but, did throw a 30FF at 6k rpm on map 5.

Here are the state of the plugs that came out, guess which is the new one







Will replace pressure converters on Saturday fingers crossed.

Smoothed the idle out a bit and made the car feel a lot more responsive. Will be going for the plugs idnan used next time.

Oil on threads of the plugs points to valve cover gasket leaking mate. Oh and get them boost solenoids sorted!
