Looks pretty good although is it sitting quite a bit higher than the wings? or maybe its not shut properly in those pictures ?
Looks like strut push...

OP-Paint it but leave 10mm bare or so around all the edges?

Re: Clutch delay valve thingy

Clutch feel is much improved,the pedal and the plate feel connected. Very much a standard thing to do.

You don't need any carriers (hangers) or hoses for M135i fronts, just the M135i discs and pads.
Does this apply to F2X calipers also?

I'm only replacing the hoses as they have done 160k now so it makes sense to me to just replace them while everything is off.

08 E82 125i Brake options.

So my calipers have started binding on the front intermittently, what options do I have? As far as I can see I can: Replace both with stock calipers. Upgrade to 135i 4 pot calipers (My choice so far) Go all in on spangly stoppers. I am very interested in the 135i option for obvious reasons but what ...

I have a 225 Crossclimates on the rears at the moment....im having endless fun destroying them. I know there's quite a bit to take into account but generally speaking, when...

Re: Potential huge u-turn to e82!

If it helps, my e82 125i has clicked past 160k, still on the original lump, no rebuilds and still goes like a champ.
Currently getting parts for a full suspension rebuild as they are a bit baggy now but drives great.
