Long time no post, and not quite what i did to the car 'today'

Sold the 2015 F30 335i.

Replaced it with a 2017 F80 M3 LCI - Had to keep it Mineral Grey, of course. Car came with Adjustable coilovers & an akrapovic exhaust

... And so the spending on a new car continues


Hope you have all been well during these crazy times

You will also need a converter box to change the dumb signal to a logic signal.

Test drove the car today runs nice and smooth.

Today I cleaned the interior of my car and am going to very thoroughly clean the seat upholstery as I found some unpleasant stains. Somehow I accidentally poured coffee and forgot and I have a beige interior. So there will be something to do. Can anyone advise on a good upholstery cleaner?

Changed my spark plugs to N20 2 step colder plugs and left the gap at the factory gap of 0.031" (0.8mm) car runs great with a decent gap size the new coils seem to be doing their job!

Week 6 and still working on the sound treatment of my E92 335
Getting closer to finishing with the last layer of treatment added to the rear seat area and reinstalled the door cards, pillars and rear seats. Tight squeeze to get everything to fit. Like putting on layers of clothing and then trying to put your clothes on

Do you have the M3 water tank? The stock tank does not have the cut out that is needed for the M3 fenders to fit
