Today's purchase,

Picking up Tuesday,






It is said to be immaculate with white/ silver stitching which is perfect. The yellow stripe I will get changed to orange to match my theme.

Should match seats nicely.

Just need to keep an eye on eBay. Lots of bargains to be had, but you have to be a bit anul and check a lot!

The car is really taking shape Nick, can't wait to see it with all the new bits. I'm really happy with the brakes pal, think they'll look great on mine.

Gutted to sell them mate, but if I could choose a car that deserves them it's yours, and I'm happy they have gone to a good home. They will look awesome and you'll be chuffed with there capability. Good meeting you, could of chatted for hours.

Yeah I will do thanks! On the plus side, I've only just gone and ordered a BMW performance auto gear knob and BMW performance handbrake + alcantara gaitor :-) My folks are off to the US and so I thought to take advantage of the exchange rate so having them delivered to a relatives house they're staying with to bring back

Oh, and it's your fault (idnan) that steering wheels moved to top of the the thoughts.

No flashing lights but happy with the wheel!

Little progress update. The rear of my new black interior is back in and most of the interior bulbs are changed to LEDs. Look so much better with white lights. Picked up my steering wheel and it is immaculate, and also just ran down to alpina527 of cutters, who coded my seats within 20 minutes. Thanks Ian, topman.

He also advised a full firmware update may be a good move on my car as mine is apparently old so will be talking to my local indie tommmorow.

Coliovers arrived today and hopefully organised to be fitted on Thursday, and hopefully get wheel on, and if front door panels and centre console trim arrived will sort those.

Getting wrapped this weekend.

Man, never has a car on here been modified so thoroughly and quickly (to such a high standard) since Hoops was prevalent on here. I salute you sir, you're doing a bang tidy job. Very much looking forward to seeing this colour with all the carbon bits and pieces.

Me too, slightly nervous about colour change if honest. Just that fear of the unknown.

That's probably one of the nicest comments I could hope for. Appreciate it

Paid for my remap last week to take advantage of the 25% off in November. Spoke to them about my cat delete pipe (as in no cats at all)



That one ^^^^^^

My plan was to fit some sports cats to this pipe. Then to fit with the miltek. The noisier x pipe added to the quieter miltek should give a happy compromise.

But......after speaking to Idnan, he suggested just going full decat, and just re fitting the pipe every mot. Other than a bit of grief at mot time that I can live with this, seems an easier option to leave the pipe as is, save the money of the sports cats and just go for it.

So new plan is, miltek is being fitted tomorrow, depending on if time left after fitting coilovers.

Then will book remap for December some time and get the de cat fitted just before.

So power upgrades will be the carbon intake,( already fitted)



Miltek decat back box, and then a full decat, and of course the full the evolve remap, hoping 460bhp, but most importantly an improved drive.

Judging by the amount of noise that comes out of mine nick and the increased drone I think this set up may be too loud and droney if fats a word haha. Time will tell though. I set off a car alarm the other night with mine lol. I thought it was funny but the Mrs wasn't impressed. It will definitely give the most power though as there will be no restriction apart from back box
