  1. Today
  2. Refitted the cooling fan and engine covers after removing them in the winter to fix something, and never bothering to refit them. Never showed any signs of going above 95c (recalibrated temp. gauge) on the move with both fans disconnected.
  3. Checked the tyre pressures for the first time since getting my wheels refurbished. Went over a pretty big pothole on Wednesday that jumped out of nowhere and the unfortunate wheel (O/S/F) was 10psi down. Fingers crossed I haven't cracked the rim . Hopefully it was somebody forgetting to pump it up all the way, or there's an unrelated puncture. Or the tyre just popped off the bead for a split second and let a bit of air out, but that's just me clutching at straws really.

  5. Benji's 325Ci progress thread

    Finally managed to get my bits back from Mark at Demon Dipping today after work. Gave the car a quick wash and fitted everything. Unfortunately the light was just on its way out as I got to photo time so I'll try to get a good full picture over the weekend. Still not sure whether I like the door handles. However, overall I have to say I am very pleased with the quality of the product, the finish is especially impressive, the depth of shine is fantastic. The only complaint I would have would be that the weave stretches out slightly on the curved part of the diffuser that you see, but is perfect on the flat bit that you don't, however I appreciate that this is a limitation of a very curved surface.       Again the pics don't do it justice (you've all heard it before). Other jobs for this weekend will be installing the angel eyes and restoring the headlights, as well as wrapping the interior trim in brushed grey steel.

    Oops! I did notice that crack... Unlucky. I guess with 50 fewer horses i'm not quite going fast enough to worry about cracks yet

  9. E46 318 1.9 manifold

    Can't upload picture but it's next to the dipstick if this helps 
  10. E46 318 1.9 manifold

    Hi, new to the e46 engine. Have had e30 and e36 in the past. Noticed the inlet manifold is making a noise like its sucking air. When I put my hand over it or press gently it stops. Is this normal or has it got a crack in it . I will try to upload a picture pointing to where I mean . I do diy machanics but not sure on this . Any help would be very greatful 
  11. Clubsport won't start.

    A couple of years ago I thought my started motor was dying (intermittent non-start). Spent a few weeks diagnosing various components and found the ignition switch was the culprit. £10-15 from breakers. 10 minute job. Might be worth a punt? I ended up rigging a push button switch directly to the starter motor confirm starter motor was fine. Might wanna try that to make sure the new starter isn't duff? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  16. Clubsport won't start.

    I did think possibly the alternator but haven't had it checked yet. Battery I'm sure is fine, the AA checked that last week and said it was fine. I've also spoken to my garage over the phone and he suggested a bad earth from my stereo but I'm sure I didn't have to earth it when I fitted it and 100% had no issues since I fitted that 2 years ago.

  17. How much does it cost to repaint?

    if it's in the same colour you don't need a full spray, certainly don't need a glass out job, if you know how to prep maybe do some of it yourself but it's not as straight forward as just rubbing it down

    Guys I'm going to have to give this one a miss! MOT failure today and no where had a rear ABS sensor until tomorrow and this means I've not been able to tax the car. Will be sorted tomorrow but all by the time you are loading the first car on the rollers.  Sorry if this causes any problems Rich
