Agreed, just breaks it up a little, they finish the clocks off nicely IMO

Had chrome ones on the last 330d, but these satin silver ones look better and are more like the factory fit BMW ones

Painted my dirty calipers and disk hub to match... Black kind of gets lost behind the wheels! Maybe I should have done silver... lol

Fitted a new power steering pump as mine packed in on Christmas eve.

Certainly beats driving it without power steering, but feels MEGA light now, not sure if the previous pump was stiffer than the new one, or if the old fluid made it feel stiffer or if it's just coz it was like steering a tank without power steering! ;-)

Taken it off the clock, you drive it around town and you know it's powerful but once you let it stretch its legs on the open road it makes big numbers very fast!

After painting the calipers yesterday I put some decals on the front two... Verdict? As I'm unsure yet!

Had a slight knocking on the rear.

Nearside rear top shock mount was a bit loose. Replaced the 2 x 13mm nuts with nylocks. Knocking gone.

So I did the other side as well.

Not sure if it's just me but I can't see the pic Aly?

Fitted some 17" BBS RKs to mine, it's going in tomorrow for a new timing belt and tensioners, water pump, thermostat, drive belts and a coolant change. I'll hopefully have it lowered sometime next week and then have a Hunter KDS wheel alignment done. Maybe then I won't be so ashamed to post pics of my Mazda 3 lol

I can see it now too, it said "Posted Image" the first time I saw it though. :wacko:

Aly, I think you need to put up some pics from further away. They don't look bad but I think they would look better if the colours were inverted (i.e. you did the calipers silver and the decals in black).

Know what you mean... I'll take some pics tomo! As it's dark outside now. Only reason I done black was so it's kind of discreet looking and not too in your face! ;)

Your calipers fill the wheel nicely so I don't think it matters if they stick out a little, and they won't stick out much in silver anyway since that's the colour of most OEM calipers.

Yeah its a massive pain :( I took the cluster apart and reassembled it with everything placed correctly as far as I could see about 3 times - still nothing! Not sure what to do next but it needs resolving. Cluster dials look good though

To be fair, I couldn't cope with them not working.

Ain't gonna touch mine till I've researched it.
