Stock 320D is nice and quite, gets 6L/100 and handles like a boat

Slightly modded 335 drones like a mofo, gets 16L/100 but zips through the bends like its on rails

When it comes to comfort, those M3 seats in the 335 are very very comfy, but yes the 320 on those spongy stock shocks is a cushy ride

Welcome to the 320d club Socket!

I find mine nice and comfy on the daily commute too, although I bet the engine sounds pretty agricultural after the 6. I took ages to get used to it after the sound / smoothness of my old M30, although it doesn't bother me now.

First mod - manual swap it

I am trying to keep busy mucking around with the Beemer. Good time to give it a good clean and check a few things. How are you going with the coronavirus. Big fines in Victoria if you are caught out and about for no reason.

Hi Coupes, Jury still out on the helix tbh mate. Everything is installed and plumbed in, but wont be able to tell how much the helix makes, until we get a chance to tune and properly dial it in..... with covid19 that could be a while before that happens

Beautiful day in Melbs today
Took the opportunity of the nice weather to install a the new maxton design lip, I've had sitting in the shed for a few months now

Regular readers will know the last one got busted during the cruise in tassie last year
So time to put on another replacement MD lip, this time in gloss black

There is not a lot of options for the M3 rep front bumper, so I am including the link below

https://www.maxtondesign.co.uk/body-...face?search=m3

As always, pics below

Pic 1 - Pulling off the front bar again
Pic 2 - Front off
Pic 3 - Taking the opportunity to do some panel work
Pic 4 - and fix the drivers headlight
Pic 5 - Engine bay is a complete mess atm
Pic 6 - Run out of time tonight, so will have to sit like this overnight
