I just can't decide if I should go for looks or super light weight alloys for performance?
That looks nuts, I love that look!

Swapped my Matt black grills for gloss black. Should have just gloss black from the start as it looks so much better and suits my Carbon mirrors and front splitter much better but hey ho. Also order a new set of Avant Garde M359 alloys.

Took my E91 325d to my bm specialist for new front and rear discs and pads, new glow plugs, dpf regen and possibly new thermostats. Waiting to pick it up but not heard a thing yet and need it back urgently! Come on Darren.

Wow! Car sounds amazing, being worrying might need new injectors as the diesel knock coming from the engine has been doing my head in for momths now. Read every review on the net re injector knock. The specialist told me more likely to be a bad glow plug, in all honesty thought he was barking up the wrong tree. Glow plugs changed knock now gone and engine purring (yeah I know diesels don't purr). Also has the headlights changed to HID's and now I can see unbelievably far! Can recommend Hawk extreme HID, no fault errors at all.
One happy chappy.

Busy day today!

Removed and cleaned both intake and outlet Vanos solenoids. Removed and cleaned MAF sensor and removed all aluminium trim ready for dropping off at the body shop tomorrow for its painting.

Then gave it a wash and polish! Beading up nicely now!

And put a deposit down on an Abarth 500 Essesse for the wife!

Fixed my reversing bulb. Well, the car fixed it on it's own heh. Had a warning light on the dash a couple of weeks ago. Checked bulbs. All good. Checked a couple of days ago. Reversing bulb not working. Pulled it out, looks fine. Cleaned the contacts. Still not working. Start up today, no warning light and working fine. Magic I guess.
