Why the new thread?

Long threads can impact the server load, so just trying to keep a good size.

Ok new thread, update on my car repair nightmare.

Been to another garage for price to sort and they've come out with £2500 so looks to be the going rate, also been to BMW and they saying £2500-2800 so seems same price for everyone.

No longer

Living the dream.

Hmm, can confidently say i was pleased to get back in to an e46 after having one , they are a bit 'boat' like for day to day use :)

Not a massive fan of the look of the e39 really.

Think I prefer the e46 shape tbh :)

Think we need to keep this thread to what you have done today and have a separate thread for all other car talk? Either that or just rename this thread 'All Other Car Talk'.

Just rinsed all the salt off and then washed it rinsed off after, but bugger drying it my hands feel like someone else's.

Was going to leave it as have a funny feeling it might get wrote off but then again thought best to clean it just in case.

All the neighbours have been looking at me like I'm on crack for doing it, it even briefly snowed for a couple of mins.

No longer

Got some glow plugs today, going to fit them tomorrow if I can brave the cold!

On the E39 note, I remapped an M5 today and removed the speed limiter for the guy who is heading to Spa over the weekend, was very impressed with the amount of car you can get for your money with those.

Was only a trial while my new rubber was being fitted, was a wheel waiting for collection at my mates place so whacked it on.

Needs bigger profile and lowering a touch, and that's a front wheel lol

Would love a set thou, really update the car
