Yes skelts, I was picking up on a slight OCD theme. I mean the mods Nick does are great, he has a very good eye for detail but quite right there is no reason NOT to go for perfect. Was the blue tipped exhaust not a temp aswell. he! he!

Love the wrap colour and looking forward to the transition, I am confident it will be top class. Keep up the great work Nick.

PS asume your wife is ok with this, I collect luxury watches and mention the very word [ watch ] and my wife goes nuts. If I said I'm going to get new rims my wife would question what is wrong with the ones on the car already.

Indeed it did.
I truly liked the sound and dont know why you are changing it

Your car looks awsome Nick. If it was my car, I would drop it slightly and use a slightly different colour of wheels.
Black wheels on black car looks too aggressive.

Sorry guys, I was so busy in taking shots and could not chat much. I had a chat with Skelts (Nick) the other day and he is very helpful and nice chap.

Beautiful cars mate - but I have to ask, what do you do for a living? Footballer, trader, lottery winner - you have some serious cash to splash

Trust me it will be dropped soon. Never owned a car that hasn't been dropped. Even lowered my last range rover!! Car will be wrapped matte silver aluminium so the black wheels should then compliment

Wow Sam. Love the photos!!

Got to say a big thanks you for taking the time.

Be great if you can re shoot it in a couple of months when the make over is finished.

Only viewed them on the iPhone. Looking forward to looking at them on a better bigger screen when home and adding a sig strip ( if I can work it out!)

I wanted to know that as well, but I behaved and controlled myself by not asking Nick

In that case, they are paying you too much or your wife has no control on your earnings

Thanks Nick.
I am sure you will be able to change the signature photo.


We may arrange another event and take shots when your car is ready.

Still got. It's a bit awkward as i don't wont to let it go at the prices I'm being offered with the big brake kit. However, I've done a deal with a forum member to part ex his brakes and we should be swopping this week.

So, car will be easier to shift, eg it will be ready to drive away, and i'll be after a bit less cash. Only been for sale for 2 weeks and only put on eBay so far. No panic currently.

Minor update.

Just picked these up of a m3 cutter ( hi Nev)





Seats are immaculate. Almost to good to sit on!

And by some weird fate, just when I was thinking about coding them alpina527, king of coding and all things bmw, contacted me to buy my iPhone. So, a part ex has been struck and times being finalised.

I have also bought this, to be picked up on Thursday ( once again of a m3cutter) a low mileage (4k) black leather complete interior. So, I will swop out all the interior, plan being to sell the performance seats when done and replace with the standard black m3 seats.





Ordered a full led interior bulb set for the interior to be fitted.

Returned my orange stitched alcantara to be replaced by silver stitching.

This also arrived. Carbon fibre handbrake.



Quite a few other plans including carbon fibre, some bits covered in alcantara with silver stitching, alacantara wheel, mats with custom badge colours, and considering ditching the rear seats and adding a roll cage but will think about the one?

Loving them performance seats mate, they look the nuts. Interior is gonna look much better now although the grey doesnt look as bad as it sounds.

Im sure i see that Carbon handbrake on ebay? Was thinking of bidding for it, if you did get it from there lucky i didnt bid on the same thing again

Not sure on the roll cage but guessing its a marmite thing but who cares its your car, loving the mods mate, moving very quick
