  1. Andy's Imola 330Ci

    Thanks mate 😀 Yeah shame not to see you at Gaydon, would've been good to see yours too. Was a great day, loads of amazing bmw's and met some cool people. Will definitely go again next year.
  2. Haha, looks great. Think I saw your car in the car park at Gaydon??. Was a great day.

    Still running plate-less since the re-paint, but attached it to the windscreen on the inside now. The official rules are that the front plate has to be visible at 21.5m diagonally from the front of the car in normal daylight. Mine is so hopefully I can leave it where it is without issue.

    Another pic someone took at Gaydon I like:
  5. Andy's Imola 330Ci

    I must update this actually, you can't really see in the pics above but I have now (finally) fitted the new callipers on all 4 corners, braided brake lines, new disks and pads all round so she's stopping about as good as she can without changing to bigger brakes etc.. and I get no more vibration when braking which if great. I also replaced all the fluid at the same time. Have some pics somewhere, I will dig them out and post up. Fitted the carbon cube door handles before Gaydon that I reconditioned a while back to match up with the rest of the trim I also reconditioned. If I can get my ashtray replaced and perhaps the centre console with hand brake / arm rest etc.. my interior will be spot on. Again, have some pics somewhere which I will find and post up. Last week I also did an oil and filter change but used ramps instead of jacks/axle stands. The ramps were too steep to get up without catching my bumper/splitters so I added some planks of wood. All went well until I tried to get the car back down. Every time the tyres got to the planks the bloody things just slid down the ramps, several times almost taking my car all the way down with them. Was a right nightmare! Tried notching the planks so they grabbed my ramps better, this didn't work. In the end I screwed the bloody things tot he ramps, didn't go anywhere then! So what started as a quick way to get the car up to change the oil turned into a right head-ache. Still, I know exactly what to do next time now.

    Took my coupe to Gaydon the other weekend. Great day, loads of amazing BMW's and was good to have a look round the British Motor Museum too. The girlfriend and I enjoyed it. A few picture from the day taken by Ben Townsend: I met Ben at the show and he took some great pics. You can find him on Instagram: @ben_townsend_photography
  7. Door mirror surround faded

    The backs / body colour parts of the mirrors pop off. At least they do on the coupe, assume it the same for all.
  8. Advice on discs and pads??

    Yeah they look great! New wheels? Love them, look like Ispiri's?? Thought you had gloss black ISR10'S though? Black version of mine?

    I was planning to go.. Be good to get on a stand :-)
  10. Advice on discs and pads??

    A pick of my rear discs and new callipers:- Was going to paint the callipers red but after seeign how good they look in silver behind my silver Ispiri's I'm sticking with silver!
  11. Advice on discs and pads??

    I have to agree with Fishman68, I just replaced all my braking system, discs, pads callipers, new fluid and fitted braided lines front and rear. I didn't go with anything exotic for the disks, just used Mintex as the last set of decent discs I had warped within a year so I figured go with Mintex and if they warp again its not too tmuch money lost. Pads wise I went with EBC which so far have been great. The braided lines and new callipers have really helped with stopping power, she sttops way better than she did with a standard set-up, well chuffed. They look cool too. Steer clear of Meyle discs. Meyle make great parts usually but their dics are pants, didn't last a year!

  15. Front Bumper Removal.

    TriggerFish is right, its a piece of piss, lost count of how many times I've removed mine, its literally a 10 min job. It is handy to have someone with you though, just to disconnect the fogs and horn connections while your holding the bumper.
