Yup, we like marmite ( well actually I don't but you get what I mean!)

Your paddles were still a bargain ( I only bidded to £20, so it wasn't me your were bidding against up to the price you paid)

Yes, off eBay. Mailed them direct, £37 inc postage. Surprised by the quality tbh!

To be honest i was pretty much guided by what you said but looking forward to them getting fitted. Was it not i thought it was to be fair. i was fumming you pushed the price up Jokes

Yea the pics look pretty smart to be fair, nearly gambled on it but forgot about it.

Hurry and get them seats fitted then ill meet you so i can see what they are like fitted. You can take me for a spin to if you want. The v8 is prob one of the only cars i havent been in but if you do take me out i have a feeling ill get the itch

Deal

Been sorting out a deal with Teddy at SSDD today for carbon fibre perf rear spoiler, mirrors covers, kidney grills, vorsteiner style front spoiler, side grills ( although I have 2 sets not happy with quality).

All in 1:1 weave to match roof,



Tomorrow turns to stripping brakes on the 335d as sorted a deal with Idnan on here to p ex. Means i can lower price on the 335 to help sale!

Whilst I'm not in hurry to sell the bank accounts beginning to look a bit sad

Think I may have an idea.

Think I have!
Matte grey aluminium wrap with carbon fibre ( matching!) and a few orange details. Re tint windows in lighter shade.

Interior, black with silver stitching and a combination of alcantara and carbon fibre.

Few engine mods and minor engine detailing.

Get a decent stance on the suspension.

When bank balance recovers 20" bbs ch/r , and march time ( bonus time!) a big bbk!!

Lots of other bits and pieces but you get the picture!

No worries. It's a great mod. There is no release button however. It's never caused me any issues, and is actually better if honest without.

You're telling me.

Last few days have been getting the brakes sorted on the 335d, removal, travel to Birmingham to part ex for a standard set up ( hi Idnan) and pick up of a black leather m3 interior.

With the sale of my big brake kit, a little bit if money back in the account.........

Not for long though as carbon fibre ordered and paid the deposit for the 3m matte aluminium wrap next weekend. Also paid for the Evolve remap today as had a November offer of 25% off, so paid today and will get booked in once decat pipes and miltek exhaust are on.

Car looking a bit sad.







335d will be back and ready to sell now! ( although does look stunning still and super quick)

Looking forward to the wrap mate, that alone is going to change the complete look of the car.

CH-R's are a great choice in wheel chris at cmwheels had a few sets for sale which tempted me but it was at a time when i just refurbed mine but if they were in 20's then it might of been different

Where you getting the wrap done mate?

Just a quick question regards the wrap, since you're having a grey wrap, does that have to be declared anywhere as it's a different colour to what it will say on the log book?

Don't think so as its a sticker technically. I have read some stuff on this ( and think the answer is you dont have to do anything) but to be honest it dosnt really worry me either way.
