So to update, I have changed the red boost pipe. Obviously no real change and can still see some oil seepage?? I must not have tightened the jubilee clip up properly...will check.
More significant though, I have ordered a vortex style breather to see if that reduces the amount of oil passing through...I stand corrected from a few posts above where I stated whoever said it was an empty box is wrong...I have now realised that the red diaphragm is on ALL types of breathers on the "air" side. The changes are on the other side where it is in fact empty on the E90s. Hence going to a vortex insert type...
Lets see!!

On a lighter and less boring subject, I have just ordered the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit, all associated mounts and all front M3 control arms. Excited!

Finally got round to installing front spacers! Looking a little more aggressive but the tyres aren't doing it any favours. Those are next to changed out for 235 upfront and 265 at rear as opposed to 225/255.

Yes, parking sensors still work. Not sure what you mean by "verbs"? guessing it is a typo...

LOL I knew it must have been some stupid autocorrect.
But yes, beeps still work albeit have a slightly higher pitched tone which isn't as pleasant but I'm used to it now.

So... intake manifold got cleaned out today along with new gaskets/seals and replaced the swirl flap blanks (old ones looked to be leaking). Wasn't too bad of a job except for car not starting afterwards but after I got it hooked up to another car, it fired up with a cough and a big cloud of black smoke. May need a new battery....anyway, all is well and it drives much smoother now and there is an obvious difference. Hoping mpg increases too!

just this minute had my tracking done afer front springs/control arms/radius arms and drop links,,also discs and pads,,the steering wheel was very slightly pointing to the left,,if i centered it the car would go right slightly,,all fixed now from local place i go for tyre fitting etc,,had to put a bit of heat on the track rod ends then adjusted as was quite a bit out,,15 for that,,not bad and car is driving great again and that awful annoying rattle and wheel shake when braking is gone..also impressed with the zimmerman discs and yellowstuff pads,,no fade at all..
