Re: BMW Show @ Santa Pod - Sunday 2nd July 2017

If any stand passes come available I would be interested in 2 for an E81 and E82.

We're going anyway and will park in the normal day parking if no passes are available.

Cheers Steve

Re: Swirl flaps cannot be replaced

The engine light will not come on as the flap control still operates with nothing to operate. You need to remove everything that Jason shows in his pictures including the 3 rod guide bushes (easily missed). I had mine done by an ex BMW mechanic locally who had done many before.

Looks good! Woulda had it in black though!
Cheers, I thought about black but everyone does it black. I have hyper silver BBS CH-R wheels so not really anything else in black on the car so i opted for white!

They refunded and I bought a primed one locally which was posted out and damaged! I then exchanged it, but in person to avoid the same situation! The spoiler h...
