BMW Performance gear knob arrived today courtesy of BMW Cotswolds.
Fitted as soon as I got home.

Extremely straight forward and took 2 mins.
Unclip gaiter, pull up hard, push in new one, clip gaiter back down - job done.

Looks and feels so much better!

Unfortunately, been without my car for a week due to an issue with the FRM Module.

Seemed to have fried itself, as the windows, security, locks, lights didn't work.
No diagnostics could talk to it either so no garage local could help and I didn't feel like paying BMW £500-£700 to sort it, especially when they couldn't book me in for almost 2 weeks!

Luckily, found some genius online at CarModuleRepairs.co.uk.
Sent it off to him on Thursday, he received it on Friday and somehow managed to fix it and recode it within an hour, and sent it back for me to receive on the Saturday (yesterday).

I plugged it back in and just like magic, it worked!!

I was absolutely ecstatic. Back up and running for £150.

So if anyone has any footwell module issues, I wouldn't think twice about recommending Car Module Repairs!

Had new brake pads, discs and front right caliper fitted today.

The old caliper was completely seized, and causing all sorts of issues.

Also, having a visit from Auto Detailz tomorrow for a stage 1 correction so it should be gleaming with a lot less swirls! :D

Been a long time since I last updated this thread and a few minor changes have been made.

I’ve added the alcantara BMW Performance Handbrake gaiter.
Replaced the rubber brake lines with Goodridge braided lines.
Fitted a carbon fibre spoiler lip.
Added a K&N Air Filter.

I’m sure I’m missed something so will edit this post if I remember.

Few changes made recently.

Door handle trims and steering wheel trim wrapped in faux alcantara (wanted to see how this came out before spending more money on real alacantara).

Genuine AC Schnitzer pedals installed.

Bilstein B12 Suspension kit installed.

Had the tracking sorted today. Got a free check in 500 miles as well just to ensure everything is still as it should be.

I’m really pleased with the outcome. The car turns in so well now and handles brilliantly! Corners flat and grips a lot more than before.
Everything feels nice and sharp to react to steering input.

Also, I thought the overall ride might be a bit uncomfortable, but to be honest it feels fine to me.
Handles all the different bumps 10x better than the stock M Sport suspension (although that was probably quite worn by now)

Money 100% well spent on this kit.

Can’t wait for a few track sessions this year.
