What Have You Done To Your Car Today? Volume 2

Recommended Posts

Pleasantly surprised that in the 10k miles i've done in the E90, all its officially needed is rear brake pads, "vehicle check" and new set of rear tyres.

Total cost £600. Cheaper than the E46 cost me to run over 10k miles.

Only preventative maintenance was autobox oil change, £700, and not due again until 120k miles.

Yup. Somebody wanted over £1k!

You gotta replace the bottom sump when you do oil change, as the filter is part of it. That part alone is nearly £200.

Good price that, can't even buy the parts for that!

7 litres of the correct oil is more than that, plus i live in one of the most expensive counties. Nothing is cheap here.

£300 actually, or £325 if you get the metal sump, which I did, all genuine ZF parts too

Almost worth driving up here to get it done, even with the fuel costs LOL

Oh, i got a full software update on the car as well, which was £150.

So about £550 for the autobox oil, £150 software update.

My pride & joy 330 has been laid up for a few months for planned full but very slow rebuild, the engine cooling system has been fully replaced with OeM parts with the exception of a ESP high flow water pump now snuggy fitted, today was spent rust treating both front discs, painted the carriers ready to receive rebuilt calipers running pagid pads.

after trying (and failing!) to install an ebay short shift kit in my 330, i've sacrificed the old bushing in the gearknob assembly, so i've just ordered a new one , as the gearshift now feels like moving a d**k in a wind sock.

Thursday - crashed her - Topaz Blue 328Ci - very sad day.....

Friday - stripped her of the easy to remove extra bits I added and replaced with originals. Sport seats, front headlight lenses, front indicators, rear LED lights, boot carpet, floor mats, and a few other bits n pieces. They wouldn't let me jack her up so couldn't get everything I wanted, but did fairly well I think.

Saturday - Purchased her replacement - Imola Red 330Ci - very happy day!!
