A little winter update...

Car has just turned 10k miles - itís racking them up as itís my daily!

Couldnít be happier with it to be honest & the colour gets lots of positive attention / comments.

Itís currently in a right state as the NE has been rather cold of late & Iíve sadly not had a chance to clean it for getting on for a couple of months - unheard of for me!!

Hereís a couple of pics:







Also just purchased an item on the mods list via the eBay 20% flash sale this afternoon..... some H&R sport springs. A nice little bargain at 139 EUR delivered from Germany!



Just need to find a decent place locally to get them fitted once they arrive!

Good work utilising that eBay discount, heard about it way too late.

I couldnt stand the dirt any longer so today I braved the cold, wind and rain and got out there and cleaned it!!

Managed to get it dried off as the rain stopped about halfway through cleaning it, but now its hammering down again. Typical!

Excellent on the springs with discount code buddy. Look forward to the fitted pics.

Like you it’s hard finding time in between the bad weather to wash the cars lol.

Looking good as always.

H&R's now arrived!

Car is going in for a new Windscreen on Monday after a fight with a rather large stone before the Christmas break!

Managed to argue the point with my underwriters and they have eventually authorised genuine BMW glass - but I still have to use their approved fitter - National Windscreens.

Not too chuffed as I wanted BMW to do it, however lets hope they don't have any issues!

So where the rear view mirror is there is a sensor, it detects condensation on the screen and adjusts the vents accordingly..... it normally gets broken as it has to be stuck to the glass so i read?

i know this as mine throws a code as it doesn't work, which was probably caused by new glass in the past....


can you scan it for codes before and after? that'll be the acid test

Update time.

Car will be going for a full GTechniq detail soon - 2 stage machine polish and the Crystal Serum Ultra Black package.

In the mean time I have now bought some wheels for the build - OEM F80 437m.

Intially I am going to try them on with the OEM tyre sizes (255/35 front and 275/35 rear) but my car also will be getting lowered soon on the H&R springs that I bought, so at that point I will have to change the tyres as they will will no doubt rub once lowered!

Once the springs are on I'll probably go for either 225/40 front and 255/35 rear OR 235/40 front and 265/35 rear.

Another quick update.

Opted for 4 new tyres on the 437mís. Went with 245/35 & 265/35 Michelin Pilot Super Sports, also needed new valve stems after the previous owner of the wheels had been using metal valve caps on metal valve stems!

Wheels & tyres will be going on the car on Tuesday - canít wait!

Got my 437m's on this morning.

Awful pictures as they were taken just as it was about to start snowing & the car is filthy!







The fronts do poke slightly so its going to need the H&R springs I have sat here on ASAP and maybe some increased camber to tuck them.

No rubbing with this wheel & tyre combo though, so thats good news!

Had a photoshop done to see the 437's in all black - have to say I am liking the look!

Thoughts?



Also had a little tweak done to show some lowering:

I'm liking that James. Still looks OEM but a little different
