A few glory shots while the cars still buttoned up. Drives wonderfully on the coilovers and new control arms.

Height is also great, looks nice IMO and I'm not struggling to get in and out of driveways or carparks, even with a full car! Guess that's the silver lining when it comes to running 19" wheels on this platform haha!

The car is driving well. Being the tinkerer that I am, she ended up on jackstands for the past couple of weeks as I wanted to sort out some more things and I'm only able to put work in sporadically with my current work/life situation.

Picked up an M3 style bootlip for the car.



I fitted the Motiv flex fuel kit and upgraded fuel lines from the fuel filter to the HPFP.



While I had the intake manifold off to tighten the aftermarket fuel line to the oem HPFP hard fuel lines, I had a look at my intake valves.




I was expecting worse, so I think they were blasted/cleaned about 30 - 40k km ago. Still not happy with it, so I guess I'm going to do a walnut blast in the near future

Next on the DIY list will be a transmission overhaul. I am currently running the xHP stage 3 flash and it is great. I was very impressed with how fast a ~10yo conventional torque converter automatic could shift. However, I recently checked my adaptation values in xHP and they weren't too flash:




Don't mind the difference between actual and average values - the averages are not a realistic indication for a car with ~130k km of wear like mine.

I don't have any significant issues with the tranny while driving, but I've noticed the shifts between 1st and 2nd are a tad harsh (not that I have WOT traction in 1st anyway). Based on my understanding, 700mbar is the line where the transmission can compensate for wear without bringing up issues that you would ordinarily perceive while driving.

I've got new fluid, a new filter, various sleeves and plan on grabbing a set of solenoids (for the mechatronics unit). I suspect the previous owners have not touched the transmission. Hopefully my plan of attack will improve those xHP values and improve shifting feel and response further.

I also have sourced a combox from an E84 X1, and a spare dash cluster from a 325i, so I will be tackling a CIC retrofit and playing around with my 335i cluster to add some interesting features in the near future.
