Garage List
2009 BMW 335i  [5.00]
It's a sad state of affairs when I didn't notice those brakes in those photos over the gleaming garage and work bench.

The wheels will look sick covering those brakes as well

Edit
If you end up making offset bushes I'll take a set. I have the f30 brakes on the front with 370mm rotors and I haven't done the rears but I have m3 rear carriers. All I need is 5mm offset bushes for the front and a set of rotors and I'm M4 all round

Haha cheers, that's what I've been working on whilst my car has been in the shop for months.

Knocked up a custom workbench (6 metres wide x 0.9m deep) one side has a 1100mm high bench so my toolchest can be stored underneath and im pretty tall so it's a good work height for me, wacked some hardwood bluegum flooring on and varnished them, installed some LED DL's over the workbench, painted the walls and floor and got some new shelving in.

I'm 90% completed just got a few more bits and pieces to do, but I'm now ready for my car to come home!

Sure I'll let you know what I end up doing, and try to get a few set made up.

The work area looks excellent Shane. Excellent job with plenty of bench area which is exactly what is required when you start pulling our cars apart. It looks like your dog is even missing your car.

Yeah exactly! I'll remain disciplined to not let crap build up on the benches and keep em clear for when those DIY jobs pop up.

Haha he does kinda look sad doesn't he, probably misses pissing on the wheels the lil bastard
