Finally made a start on my audio. I have been leaving this due to the weather and how long it takes.

So today i tried to tackle the problem of fitting morels in E92 doors (narrow door). I used my old E90 adaptor and modified it into a sort of stepped adaptor, using a ring of 9mm mdf. This caused the speaker to stick out too much so using my trusty DA i sanded it down to around 5-6mm i think. Fits snuggly.

I used some industrial strength glue for the stepped ring and when that dries out fully tomorrow, i will fit them in. Then i'm going to top mount the morel attached to the OEM speaker grill.

Will post pics once they are in with the grill on This idea was taken from one of Technics threads.

5" would be too big I'd think Mistryn, Unless you opt for near the bottom of the sill / door panel area.. I maybe wrong but I'm sure that's what I read and came across during my research days into Audio lol.

Offtopic, where d'ya buy the M3 wheel from btw?

Yes it is possible, saw a few threads about it in the audio section ages ago. Not sure on how to do it though. My guess would be that you'd have to top mount it.

Stick your reg no,and email address into the link below,fire it off,and you'll get a quote back,which you can then order from (I've put the part no's in)

http://www.bmminiparts.com/PriceFinder.aspx
So i am thinking to get this diffuser. Are there any pics of it installed and what paint options should i go for each part? Also looking to get the aero lip, tips and boot lip soon as well.

I think coilovers will have to wait a month or two. As for the aero lip, I have found a place where i can buy the OEM one for a similar price to the SSDD one....So sorry but will probably go for OEM

Mo, the central (smaller) part of the two pieces that make up the P/diffuser is not meant to be be sprayed,and without the proper prep the paint won't take properly,and will likely peel.

I had mine colour coded (with the exception of the central part) to the car,so if I were you,I'd do the same.

Pic of mine fitted in a previous life

Thanks Ian, looks sweet! I hope you don't miss her too much.

I just cant decide between OEM or CYBA's dual CF M-TEK one. I do like the insert of the OEM one though. They are both similar in price after factoring in taxes and painting the OEM one.

Do you know of anyone who has got CYBA's M-TEK one here in the UK?

Edit: CYBAs one looks like the standard M diffuser after closer inspection

Is this one the same as you posted above: http://www.e90post.com/forums/member.php?u=26793

Yes,that's the same one as I linked to above.

It's much cheaper if you order the diffuser as two separate items,using the two part no's,as opposed to ordering it as one item.

Cyba MTec CF diffuser,on my previous 07 E92,seems like a gazillion yrs ago

Cheers for that Ian. I think the OEM one does look better, i like the gaps near the top. Just looks like there's more going on, which is good.

I've sent the request for the diffuser to bmmini (2 separate parts) and will hopefully get a similar price to what you quoted!

I have requested a primed and a painted price from bmmini, but how much do you think is reasonable?

I didn't know bmmini did painted in honesty

I paid around 150.00 to have mine sprayed,so anymore is steep,I probably got tucked up anyway

That's a good price guys I was thinking abou looking into these should I get the exhausts done and can't decide between getting the carbon centre or just the standard black one!

One with the CF centre will cost around 200 so just not sure!

I emailed bmini too so hopefully get quotes back on Monday!

But 150 sprayed is pretty dam good!

IMO, since you've gone away from CF this year, you should consider the standard black one. Your current diff has CF so would give a nice change for it to be non CF - of course your baby so you have final say but that's my tuppence

Good seeing you dude, sorry couldn't join after... we left almost shortly after you did.

You going quads or 335 style with duals?

Im sure Ian meant 150 to paint, so roughly 250 painted... If he meant 150 painted then that's excellent!

Performance diffuser from www.bmminiparts.com
51 12 2158792 Trim, diffuser HP, primed top 79.47 inc + delivery
51 12 2158793 Trim, diffuser HP, bottom 31.03 inc + delivery

Get the quote from bmminiparts,print it out,take it to your dealer,and from my experience,they'll match it,so you'll save on delivery

So 150.00 to spray + parts above comes out at = 260.00 ish.
