  1. It looks like all my pics dissapeare because I had them linked to my old FlickR account. I will have to fire up my PC and download them for you dude.
  2. OK, so I could have sworn I replied to an advert on here for someone who had a decat and exhaust for sale. I remember the ad saying they had it on a touring and a saloon and it was £120, but I can't for the life of me find it again.
  3. Have a look at my old thread for my 330i. I had a decent sized sub box butted up against the back seat and still had plenty of room because I mounted the amp in the spare section.
  4. Does anyone have one of these lying around they want to sell on? I'm not fussed about paying £300 for a "proper remap" on a car that cost me £350 to buy. I just want a little more poke and I'm not arsed about smogging people out behind me. I've spotted a lot on eGay for around £45 from Poland, so was just going to buy one of those, but the last time I had one (a DTUK job) it looked like it connected to 2 different connectors, where as these look like just one.
  5. If its coming through the steering wheel and not your butt, then its most likely front end, as above, lollipops
  6. Guys, I don't suppose anyone used to own this car? I'm currently looking at it, but the seller says the service book was lost by her father (the owner). I'm usually very sceptical about stuff like that and walk away, but there's something about this car I really like. I don't know whether I am being spun a yarn here and they are just traders, but she tells me her dad bought it as a stop gap whilst having his 6 series repainted. BMW have confirmed there is "some history" with them, but they won't release the info to her because she's not the registered keeper. She's sent me some pics of some of the receipts, including sale bill from 2008 for 17k to Mr J Wough from Southampton. It's a long way to travel for me if the car turns out to be a pig.
  7. Did someone say front end repair? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201910103169947
  8. BUMP for this topic. Are clubsports available in facelift? I throught they were all pre-facelift??
  9. Bumping this topic as I need a decent phone holder for my Sony Xperia XZ Premium. It's a big phone, but I use it for my music with an aux cable and for my navigation. I had a properly sleek magnetic holder on my TT, but that won't fit the beemer Ideally I want it on the right hand side centre vent, angled towards me
  10. Last set of tyres I swapped were some awful uniroyal rain things and a random maxxis. I put on a full set of Michilin Pilot Sport 4s. Jesus, what a difference. They were absolutely fantastic in the dry and the wet.
  11. I've just picked up a shed of a saloon for daily duties. It's got the full M-Sport pack, but I am guessing it's had the bootlid replaced at some point because there's no spoiler on it. is it a saloon only part, or will the one off a coupe fit?
  12. And on getting an insurance quote, it's jumped up £300 more than my 3.2 V6 TT. What on earth is that about?
  13. I picked up the 320d for silly cheap off a friend. It is for workhorse duties up and down the motorway as I am moving house, so my 3.2v6 TT will be a little thirsty for that, plus can't fit my colleagues in for car sharing. Once I have sold the TT, the money will go into a nice E60\E61 530d
  14. I know it is a 5speed manual, so likely to be the lower powered lump. I guess a simple remap would up that, or is it a case of a different turbo? I don't want to go silly with it, but everyone always wants a bit more "umph"
  15. Wiki has me chasing my tail. I've just picked up an E46 320d saloon 2003 and wondered what the actual power figures were as there seems to be 114bhp and 134bhp thrown about. I know the later ones in the E90 were 163. Can anyone confirm from my reg MA03UXT
