No expenses other than fuel for November.
Cars running very nicely at the moment apart from a small oil leak from the oil stat cover plate, it would seem this gasket is unavailable to buy on its own & will require a new stat and housing

Novembers expenditure consisted of a oil service and full check over by a good local indy that came to £235.

The health check highlighted the need for new front disc's, luckily black Friday saw some good discounts on Zimmerman Drilled disc's, I couldnt have Drilled front a solid rears so I ended up purchasing for both axels at the cost of £237. That was it for maintenance.

I couldn't resist a few mods this month, so a new cold side MTC charge pipe, (basically a rebadged, generic pipe used by many a company), a Tial Q50 BOV, and a phoenix race intercooler, that little lot came to about £630.

Mine's been incredibly cash positive this month as I've sold it!

Not sure what's next as it was an unexpected sale (long story). Whatever it is, it'll probably still be a BMW.

Yeah, I've been following your build. Your 35i has seen some changes.
It will be properly quick once you get that lot done

Yeah I was quoted £2300 +vat just to buy the turbos & fitting kit from my local main dealer. The Mitsubishi turbos with fitting kits are just under £1400
Do you mind me asking where you sourced the Mitsubishi turbo's from.

Many thanks. I'm thinking along similar lines, I'll touch base with Darren Woods in Stockport for early in the new year.

I am pleasantly surprised at how much quicker the car is now, although it is more of a handful when getting on the power.
I briefly considered hybreds but am glad I didn't as mines now about at its limit with power versus grip & anything more would have needed some suspension upgrades.

Good stuff, basically I have manual 2007 335i which I've had from new. It needs a few bob spent on it now, new injectors, suspension refresh and new turbo's due to a bad waste gate rattle. Still got this far (car has 120,000 miles). Had the decision to off load the car for something newer or persist and get the issues sorted. Nothing really grabs me new car wise ( for reasonable money anyways), so have decided to upgrade. Plan is
New turbo's, not sure for OEM Mitsubishi's or MTurbo ones from ML performance for a little more outlay( £1400 as opposed to £1750)?
New index 12 injectors
New VRSF inlet, Intercooler, catless DP's
New VRSF oil catch can and RB PCV
Bilstein B12 pro kit plus H&R sway bars, M3 subframe bushes, TRV lower control arms
Get a walnut blast and top off with a JB4.
This all to be completed in one go! I'm not looking for crazy power increases just a car that I can enjoy for another 3 years without the dread of a big repair bill.
