1st time I see your car in the flesh yesterday mate and I got to say its perfection from the carbon to the smaller details with orange accents(not including that tiny brake set up you have )

Still got to come and collect that seat belt handover.
Cheers Nick. Any mini meets text me and I'll come down. Keeping your seat handover safe!

It's good that we were sharing the 'stance' pain.

Thanks Theivz! Couple of people said that but I'm still waiting for the trophies/ cash/ holidays ( delete as applicable) to come through!

Seriously though, your new rims looked the business!

Thanks boys. Kit will be for sale prior to Christmas but you'll need to be running 20s to fit the front. 19s will be ok for the rears however.

Couple of pics from the hangar outside players show a couple of weekends ago.

It is possible to get the brackets from PB like I did. I actually have the brackets for a non m3 set of rear 380mm brakes which I'm happy to let go for free to help Nick's sale

I would have taken the front brakes off you if they would fit under 19s

Didnt see the seats for sale... How much are you asking...

Have you retained the full electric functions?

Only fit under 20s I'm afraid ( fronts that is, rears fine on 19s)

Seats look to be sold already

Well Sam,....

Started to sell bits. Sold my seats , and now I'm abit gutted about this. Long story but now I may put in a pair of recaro pole positions and may hang onto the car for 6 months. Looking to achieve this..



Sold the tubi back box and primary decat, but bought an akropovic evo titanium exhaust system , the daddy of m3 exhausts ( 5k new!)





Just need tips adjusting so stick out further but got to say its an amazing system really has that super at buzz to it.

So that didn't start well then! Exhaust was the bit that re excited me about the car and made me think I might keep it.

I did however decide I'd free up some of the cash and sell some of the bits.
So the bbs are going on Tuesday as is the carbon airbox.
Needed a new filter so bought a bmc performance filter.


Put back on the old csl reps, still in 20s and actually really like them. The gloss black sets of
Colour of the bodywork.


Took the spacers of the front but now going to put 15s back on me thinks.







Must be getting old but decided I wanted my oem roundels back. Really like them now.



Bought a split armrest for 85 notes.



And a cic controller, but this dosnt work. Apparently my software to old so going to need to go back to bmw to get updated before it will work, boo!



So that about it for now. Going to sort something out about the seat. Play with the interior a bit, possible lower more but really just enjoy driving for the next 6 months, with the odd small mod here and there!
