I have a little update

Popped down to my friends fab shop today to get a price on an exhaust Image not bad pricing really for what I wanted! Had a little walk around his e30 while I was there. Thought as it was inside I’d give it a good once over again as I cleaned it on Tuesday and it did get a little dirty haha only got the one picture though Image

I put the chrome grills back in as I am starting to dislike the black ones, plus it breaks up the colour a bit Image I’ll update again soon as I’m on the hunt for a remap, so if anyone in the southwest knows anyone good then please let me know 🤙🏻

Mate loving the progress and stance is spot on imo...

How do you get on with car parks and bumpy roads?

I’m thinking about springs but endecided between pro and sport lines. Sportlines give the best stance just worried about catching my sumo on everything
Cheers mate 🤙🏻 I’d like to space the wheels out a little bit, tbh it drives spot on a lot better than the factory msport suspension, doesn’t catch on speed bumps and it’s got loads of clearance around the sump chap, personally I’d go for sportline as it’s that little bit lower all round and it looks better imo. Hopefully the ride doesn’t change when the bilsteins are fitted though but it’ll be fun on the back roads

I have a little update 🤙🏻 the bilsteins are fitted!!!! And omg they are insane! I’ve had many coilover set ups from bc, d2, fk, racelands and I’ve heard the the eibach print and bilsteins shock set up is a lot better and I’ve got to say they aren’t wrong it’s a lot stiffer but not to stiff for daily driving them. A lot of fun on the back roads Image but it didn’t go all to plan when they were fitted on Friday it felt odd on the rear end just didn’t feel as stiff, anyway on the way home from work there was an almighty bang from the rear Image the top mounts had failed and the osr shock had gone through the top mount. But all is good now and all fitted correctly Image I have a couple of pictures ImageImage

Next on the list will be a remap, I’ve got in contact with JL performance to see what they can do and also we’ve got a guy we can go through work with so I’ll see which will be the better of the both! Also I’ll be doing a turbo back system that my friends will be doing for me so ideally want todo that first so I can map out the dpf warning,

That’s all for now 🤙🏻

Hello lady’s and gents, haven’t updated in a while,

Nothing much has happened at the moment, I’ve put my smaller plate on the rear of the 1er. I’ve also taken off the m sport tail pipe cover thing as it was rattling around and couldn’t be fixed but no worries as I’m get a turbo back system soon and getting it mapped Image Image

Hello lady’s and gents

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so apologies for that! Right I’ve been away due to changing jobs a few times and haven’t had the money or time to spend on the 1er Image I’ve had a civic which I got for free which I was going to build in to a track car but that didn’t last long so I sold that to a close friend of mine Image well the plan for the bmw has slightly changed haha, the original plan was to keep it simple and clean but now I want a fast toad sort of stole where I can go on track but use daily, as I’ve got the eibachs and bilsteins already it was an easy decision 🤙🏻 so I’m going to look into the eibach arb kit and some adjustable arms from bimmerworld. Also I’m after a set of team dynamics 1.2 in 18x9 all round with 235/45r18 Michies or yokos. Anyway here’s a picture of the car when I cleaned it yesterday Image

This will all happen after a couple months as I’m going to France at the end of next month Image

Updates will be back as usual Image

Got a little update for you all, nothing to exciting but it’s something hhaha. Since owning the car I’ve been meaning to do the front discs and pads so a year after owning it I’ve finally bitten the bullet and repacked then Image it also gave me a chance to check over the eibachs and the bilsteins 🤙🏻 Image
Replaced them with pajid discs and pads, ideally I wanted mintex but I didn’t really want to wait for them as these where on the shelf from the parts suppliers. Ive also got the car booked in for its windows to be slightly tinted as I think it’ll look smarter and keep the car looking abit crisper! Anyway I’ll update again once they have been tinted Image

Well some small bad news at the moment, I was meant to get my windows tinted before I go to France with the misses, but, the guy double booked and didn’t let me know so I sat around at his workshop for an hour twidderling my thumbs Image anyway I a lighter note I cleaned the bmw for the first time in a while Image Image

Looks loads better, I’m definitely going to give it a good polish once I’m back though! I also put the bmw on the ramp at work as I have a slight knock from the n/s front which turned out to be the front lower arm that I replaced before Xmas Image so I’m going to have to bite the bullet and get some poly bushes for them!Image

Anywa heres some more pictures

ImageImage

Image
I really want to space the wheels out also, does anyone know what sizes to get front and rear?

Cheers Sam

Hello lady’s and gents!!

It’s been awhile! I’ve just got back from Paris for the week with the misses, had a brilliant holiday away from home and the bmw Drive like a dream there and back Image only thing that I had to get used to was using the kilometre bit on the speedo but apart from that it was spot on. Didn’t get many pictures over there as it was some alone time away but I could say I was pulling my hair out on how dirty it was when we got back so, as you could probably guess I have it a good bath Image Image
I will be ordering some spacers and an aero spoiler on payday Image also looking at some corner splitters for the front bumper aswell

Cheers sam

Aesthetically, your car is almost identical to mine. I've recently had the 208m's refurbished in anthracite but think your wheels look great.

Also interested in the aero spoiler and spacers too Image
