Finally got back from work so I've got a chance to post up a couple of pics of my new car. I have to say I'm very impressed with the car! Now it's time to make myself bankrupt buying all the mods I want for the car :lol:

Thanks mate, I love the car! I've got a pretty good idea of all the mods I'm going to be doing to it. Struggling do find a rear diffuser I like though. Did you notice much difference in the performance when you remapped your car Twenny?

I noticed it even though I only actually went from 215 to 245 bhp - other than the darklines it was the best thing I've done to my car, feels much quicker and responsive.

P torque can give you up to 50bhp extra as they just de restrict the N52 130i engine.

I can show you the graphs but it's a massive increase for a n/a engine.

As for rear diffusers? there's a kerscher one that Isn't quite so aggressive as the Rieger one I and others have. Looks awesome.

I think I will have to book myself an appointment at p torque! It's gonna be a long drive there and back but it sounds like it will be worth it :D thanks twenty I will check that diffuser out!

P torque was a 6 hour round trip to Wolverhampton - err actually it was 3.5 hours there and about 2 back!!!

Here's the kerscher rear splitter -

And also the front splitter - but there's nicer (cheaper ones out there)

I just googled it and it's 5.5hrs from my house to their garage :| still I'm sure it will be worth the trip. I really like that diffuser! I'm going to get the front diffuser from eBay that you had a link for in your cars thread.

So i had some spare time today so I gave the car a polish. Came up pretty nicely, I had almost forgot how much I hated polishing cars as my last car was plasti dipped so I had'nt done it in a long time :x

Image

I decided that I was going to debadge the car as personally I think it looks cleaner. So with a very thin cable tie I managed to cut the numbers off in a cheese wire like fashion. Looks pretty good i think :D

Before
Image

After
Image

After that I thought I would give tidying up my exhaust tips a bash as they are in a pretty sorry state. I used a drill with a wire brush to buff away the dirt and corrosion but they didnt really come up how I was hoping they would. Gave them a quick spray of laquer and popped them back on. Still undecided what route i want to go down for the exhaust so they will do for now.

Image

After giving the car a bit of tlc I gave it a good thrash about the country roads and was very impressed with the handling! I was really struggling to break traction to the rear wheels which i was a little dissapointed about, they are dunlop sport runflats on the car. Ive never had dunlops on any of my previous cars but i was pretty surprised by the grip they offered. Hopefully after the remap the car will be a bit easier to persuade the rear to step out :lol:

Any way thats enough of me rambling on and boring everyone! Hopefully get my new wheels and spoiler next week so there will be more pictures to follow

Car looks great! :)

Do the exhaust tips just pull off or is there anything holding them on?
