I know it's a pain of a job but good to get sorted and then protected.

Yeh I know , was about to do some more this morning when the Mrs says "my car is filthy" So I gave that a wash, a couple of coats of wax and a seal . Wish I had a red car!



Will do a bit more on mine tomorrow unless the kids decide their cars need cleaning

Well after spending the last few weeks looking for a replacement car , i got p1ssed off with it and decided to keep the 335 for a little longer.

Replaced the Koni suspension and Apex springs [ should be a bit more comfortable and easier to sell if i change my mind again!]



Am also considering new wheels. Inspiri ISR5

Had car in for an alignment today and the guys noticed the track rod end on the drivers side was bent, probably where I hit the lorry tyre, never noticed much of a difference to be honest :P , also had gearbox bushes replaced.

Well after just over 3 years of trouble free motoring [ yeh right, it has been a fucker at times this car and never got to the bottom of the wobble] it looks like its going, went to look at a Mini JCW today but it was being valeted so no pics.

Have enjoyed it, the power has been something else but I am now doing what I should have done 2 years ago, getting something quick but with much better ownership costs [ I do 400 miles a week in this and thats just the commute]

If everything goes to plan, it should be gone late next week, been, erm fun!

Nice replacement for sure. Shame in one way though but totally understandable decision.

Bit of both mate really, wont miss the hassle and expense of running it but will miss the power.

Getting this to 250bhp should keep me entertained and still technically a BMW

But you get a chuckable bit of kit in return these are great fun as I think I said earlier like the 335i's well known for combustion misfires, usually solved by the magic of walnut blasting, other things that crop up involve the inlet manfild and rocker cover, with this stupid crank case breather set up.

Little tit bit for you re PCV http://www.e-tuners.com/index.php?s=12&t=299with a usuful part number to boot that may help!

not that well documented but going forward prevenstions better than the cure.. enjoy Sparky

Ive just got rid of a cooper s. I hope you have better luck with yours than I had with mine. It was a bloody awful car with problem after problem.
Good fun when everything was working ok though.
