I will soon tackle the white plastic part in my headlights, couple bits for interior and new steering wheel. Bumper work & sort out my rear tailgate.
Nice! Excited to see it done :).

Front looks great. Look forward to seeing it with all wheels on.
How you finding the ride on the BC's? I had them on my previous E92 and just couldn't find settings I liked.

So far it's nice driving on a smooth bit of road but not great over humps etc. I would like it to feel a bit stiffer then it will just feel stiffer over those humps so I'm not 100 percent yet.

But on that note it feels better than the crashy msport suspension and run flat combo.

Needs a good clean again and I need to lower n/s/f a touch to equal out the height and put my spacers on the rear.

Nice to see a modded one of these. The looks don't normally do it for me but lower and blacked out looks pretty mean

Well, as you may of seen on previous page someone hit my front bumper and I need to get this sorted before Mod Nats in May so I need to get my bumper painted, I will be getting black grilles from BMW and also getting my number plate holes smoothed.

If all goes to plan!

On the way to work today car drove fine, pulled in to position to reverse in to a parking bay and I felt a bit of a jolt, went in to reverse and the same thing happened etc & a yellow cog warning light come on.

So this was a gearbox malfunction light. I also have my TPMS lights on since I changed tyres & wheels etc which I am going to have coded out. But this along with the traction control light that came on & brake fluid warning light too led me to look in the manual and linked this to a suspension system failure.

After asking a couple questions it turns out that this is due to the tracking which is being done after work today and I will be having a brake fluid change to rule this out also as this was one of the lights the flashed up.

The gearbox malfunction light disappeared after restarting the engine but I will be having it scanned by a friend on the carly app to see what shows up, if anything..

A driver slamming on brakes at a green traffic lights for no reason, causing the car in front of me to emergency brake and swerve as i was changing lanes, caused me to rear end another car!

Not best pleased as you can imagine, waiting to speak to a claims handler tomorrow from my insurance. Insurance being insurance this is going to go against me too which is a PITA!
