Re: M2 STOLEN!

Sorry to hear about the theft. I had planned to purchase an M2 or saloon RS3 next year, but tbh I won’t bother.

Keep my 135i which has full Birds package and keep the £35k I had planned to spend. Would have been a cash buy. Will put that into mortgage or pension instead.

Re: Birds Quaife ATB diff group buy?

Yes it’s v expensive, but I’m enjoying the car more.

I just said sod it and spent £3k with them in June. Only live once. Still got eyes on an M2/Cayman next year. Although looking at house move too for a better commute location re M27/m3

Good luck

Re: Camber pin for idiots

I would say no, but a regular alignment is never a bad idea, provided a decent Hunter operator weights the car down properly. Moving the strut tops inward as far as they will go is about a 4mm movement, which gives you something like 10 to 15 minutes more neg. It won't look visually different, but ...

M333 PNC AW M235i - M27 31/7

You sir are a complete knob jockey

Seen you on there before, but boy what a complete c**k.

You sadly give BMW owners that bad rep.

People over taking traffic and you ride their bumper. Next time I hope someone brake tests you or submits dash cam footage

Re: Clutch delay valve thingy

I still haven’t done mine. I wouldn’t mind driving a car that’s had it done.

Re: Powerflex bushes

I’ll be getting subframe inserts done soon, which not sure. TBH whichever are black. Would like SuperPro, but they aren’t black.

Failing that I’d go M3 bushes.

Already got TRW M3 arms, but forget to get cancer pjns removed :(

Re: Tyre Reviews Video - Do wider tyres give you more grip? The differences between tyre widths tested and explained.

I didn't enjoy MPSS as much in the same square sizes as their narrow drainage grooves didn't cope with standing water well (this is particular to the 245/35/18 pattern SuperSport - PS4 is fine in the same size). 245mm MPSS were better in the dry, but quite prone to aquaplanning (as THE TYRANT also ...

Sidewalls are too wobbly on the AS3 for me. Put PS4 on the rears recently and they're good although on 245. Previously I had 255 yoko advan sport v105 and they felt just as good if not better (in the dry)
I’m unsure if i’ll Upsize to 255 from 245.
