  1. Looks good mate, nice finish ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  2. I just let my staff get on with it and came back when they shouted me to show the extent of the damage I just said crack on lol .. I'd just refurbished them and was going to clean the car but decided to repair the rusty arches 1st, silly idea that was ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  3. I can only use 1 out of 4 jacking points! It gave me a decent excuse to get the arches rolled perfect and give the car a fresh bit of paint as all 4 corners are pink ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  4. But to take my mind off it all I decided to black out the front grills ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  5. It's been a while but thought I'd add in a bit. Finally got the car running properly with a good service and a new pre ignition fuel pump, also did the golf t mod to the egr till I'm ready to blank it all off properly I decided I wanted a set of my favourite wheels But as they're 7 series offsets I had a bit of rubbing, so I rolled the arches but this opened up a horrific sight And that's just the passenger's side, thankfully I run a body shop as this would be on the scrapheap. Can't believe the state in which traders will sell cars ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  6. I've had a look through, and not sure if I've put this in the right section so in any case any help is much appreciated My 330d takes 5 to 7 seconds to turn over, it doesn't mater if it's hot or cold start, I've spoke to one person and he's said it could be a leaking injector where it's not building up enough pressure, my research is pointing to fuel filter or solenoid but where I have read about the solenoid people's cars just haven't been starting, I don't have swirl flaps, I cleaned out the egr yesterday but still the problem persists, does anyone have any experience with this issue?? Cheers ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  7. Great write up I'll be doing this next month fingers crossed it goes as smooth as this reads ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  8. i wont put shell v power in my st,its a rip off still £1.20 a litre where i live,yet if i drive to tesco 16 miles away its 15p per litre cheaper,and as i do my shopping ther,i time it to fill up at same time,and save,so i get around £7 worth of fuel more,also its a more higher octane ie 99 ron compared to shell,shell claim to add more additives but they all add stuff,so screw you shell.keep ya v power and stick it where the sun dont shine. Lol I've not tried tescos 99 yet, should be getting my 1 series back at the end of this month so when it's back I'll have to give them both a go, I agree with the £7 saving, a mate of mine runs the 99 with extra stuff that he puts in and it ends up around 107 octain, you can definitely feel the difference ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  9. Sorry got fuels mixed up :oops: it's been a heavy Christmas haha I only fill up on BP ultimate or the shell v power diesel, shame that won't come down as quick ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  10. i am the other way,had dervs for last 15 years,so the petrol st is for weekends.actually surprised im averaging 25 mpg ,thought it would be around 20 mpg,and as tesc momentum is only £1.04.9 per litre its not so bad,and the noise is great with 3 inch downpipe decat and 4 inch cat back,along with a forge recirc valve,all miltek from turbo back.rs clutch fitted also,with stage 2 airtec ic and a good ebc brakes and red stuff ceramic pads setup. That's a tidy setup! Heard today petrol has dropped below a pound! Obviously not the good stuff but it comes down as well ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  11. I'm coming from petrol as well so I'm a bit stuck in my ways, I won't be doing anything until I have read everything I can .. your focus sounds like a great little toy ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  12. It's the man box I've read a lot on the autos so I tried to steer clear, I wish I had the 6 speed though as I'm forever looking for it. Ecotune state 240 bhp 500 torque but the downpipe is needed to run that map - https://ecotune-scotland.co.uk/chiptuning?make=3&model=104&engine=570 I'd like the ic as if I get heat soak I know it will be at that crucial moment you don't want it and an lsd just because it feels more planted to drive, I'm not a drifter I just like to feel everything work as it should ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  13. Hi, thanks, I do wish I had xenon though .. I have been looking at ecotune, and their stage 2 and downpipe looks like a good route. Along with the egr blanking Been looking at fmic but can't find any info on them for this car, or I haven't been looking hard enough, it has been a busy few says I want a ssk but there seems to be a lot of different opinions on which one works and different results. I also want an lsd coupled with some matt bronze bola b1 I think that will finish it off. Any other ideas? My knowledge of these cars is limited but I'm hoping to know it as well as my 1 series soon ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  14. Thanks if I'm honest I never thought I'd own a red car but I saw this one and it just tore at my heart strings so it had to be bought ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
  15. Hi, thank you, I must agree I like it more each time I see it ------------------------- Monacoblau e87 1m Imolarot 2 e46 330d saloon
