  1. Black 330d Sport Touring

    I like it, it’s heavier, shorter and more slender than the old one, which I don’t think was a club-sport/zhp. Feels like a quality product in the hand. Got the matching handbrake handle on order from latvia or some other weird place that begins with L. The carbon cube dash and door trims are going silver with a nice gloss coating! Should freshen the black hole up nicely! Problem is now I’m really noticing how sloppy the rest of the linkage is so I’m eyeing up the E60 shift conversion. Got it for £49 from bmwdirect on ebay.

    couldn’t resist the urge to splurge and got hold of a bmw performance gear knob! gaiter courtesy of Mrs Incredirog and some OEM alcantara I had knocking about.
  3. get the dremel out and make them fit!
  4. Black 330Ci - Super Deluxe 'sleeper'

    That’s a really neat idea, off the top of your head, would it be possible to make the two functions independent? screen or headlights? at the moment I only code them to work in the depths of winter which isn’t exactly and elegant solution.
  5. OEM rear seat 12v socket

    holy moly! well that’s me out of the market I’ll just have to improvise a bespoke set up in the future when the kids realise they can charge their iPads on the move!
  6. Black 330Ci - Super Deluxe 'sleeper'

    Looks really good, it’s a great concept OEM+ and one I’ve tried to steer my efforts towards. Have you got any details or pics of the compass mirror and intensive wash upgrades?
  7. is that the same on the d’s then?
  8. didn’t realise that! apologies for the bad advice!
  9. 330Ci Project Topaz...

    lovely bit of kit, is that the original finish or have they been refurbed?
  10. Projector Foglights

    Hello anyone got any experience of this style of fog light? [url=][/url] ive got the standard mtech style with yellow film at the moment but it kind of clashes with my amber indicators so I’m looking to change it up. is the light output any good with halogen bulbs? is there a nice crisp cut off? is it a big no no using led bulbs with projector lenses? thanks!

    pressure bled about 5 litres of fluid through (recycling as it was already flushed a few weeks ago) and still had bubbles so buttoned it up and took it for a drive, pedal feels perfect so I’m assuming air was being drawn into the bleed screw around the hose or threaded connection and giving the impression of air in the system. took too long to figure this out, wasted an evening on a 15 minute per side job.

    hope they work don’t fancy taking them back to ECP looking like this, it’s bad enough when they’re hidden behind a wheel!

    in the finest traditions of maintaining a high miler I got my brakes all back together and had 7 glorious days before one of the rear calipers seized. I knew it was on the cards as I could barely push the piston in to change the pads with it off the car and disconnected. decided to change them both as they were in a terrible state. Pagid refurbs from ECP nice little discount, still expensive but cant be bothered to get in to a diy rebuild on my only method of transporting the familam. Fronts seemed to have faired better but only time will tell.

    looks nice that, I couldn’t drive mine without the armrest though! how does the hydro dipped finish stand up to wear and tear? I’ve plastidipped mine and the rear ashtray bit where the kids put their feet on it has not fared well.
  15. it sounds like you know enough about engines to realise that you’re gonna need to whip the head off if you really want to see what’s going on! good luck with it
