Thanks I’m really pleased with these wheels. Having the B12 suspension kit and M3 LCA and tension struts fitted on Friday.
I can’t wait, it already feels like a new car after ditching the runcraps.

OK knowledgeable and helpful people! Some help please.
i have just had fitted my B12 kit and front M3 LCA's and tension struts. also i have had o/s inner and outer track rod and end relaced. I supplied top mounts for the front and had the upper and lower spring mounts replaced. I also supplied top and bottom mounts for the rear.
how long do think this would take? it was done by a indy BMW specialist.

Thanks

Hello All,

Done this over the glorious Easter weekend. Carried out a swirl flap-ectomy and changed No 1 cylinder glow plug and the control module on the back of the oil filter. Manifold wasn't gunked up at all (sorry no pics) but i decided to remove the flaps and bar anyway. Gave the inlet manifold a clean and left it to soak in some "gunk". All went according to plan, the most difficult thing i found was releasing the electrical plugs. Had to butcher a few of them but i got away with it. Surprisingly the glow plug released easy after a soaking with some "PlusGas".
Now my only error is the poxy additional water pump. I hate seeing the yellow engine light on every i turn my ignition on. Think i will probably change it anyway.
