Recommended Posts

That's a massive selling point tbh. And in the summer, you can cool it down remotely too...

Just a shame they're so weird looking.

Had a remanufactured Alternator fitted as the bearings were getting very growly! Now just need to trace a coolant small when warm- already found a few areas worth checking on the forum :)

Topped up the washer fluid.

Kinda weird owning a car that doesn't need constant TLC. 12k miles into ownership and all its officially needed is a set of rear pads.

Knowing my luck, it'll have a "turn" tomorrow.

Jacked it up at the back to see if i could find this tapping noise, couldn't find a thing, everything's old but good except the brake lines which have been replaced.

So i thought that i would check the top mount... On a touring... I soon regretted that after stripping out half of the boot and finding many brken clips but i think it is the source of the noise. And the suspension kit might be needed sooner than I thought.........

Not today but tried one of those waterless wash sprays on it earlier in the week. Thought it was worth a go since the paintwork is pretty swirly anyway. I have to say I was quite surprised how well it worked conidering the minimal effort required. Definitely not recommended if the wind is blowing though. Used a whole bottle of spray because most of it blew away/in my face.

Yeah, just pushed on. Perfect fit too, happily! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/361282757612?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

My tail pipes are 60mm, so I thought they'd be a bit loose at 70mm. Not sure what the e46 pipes are, so dunno if they'll be any use for your car. My 330d has downturned pipes, so I can't try it on that either :( I think they also did large 74mm ones though.

Another roadtrip, another battlescar :(

This time caused by a Luxembourg driver trying to cut through the Eurotunnel lanes! He wouldn't hand over insurance details, and as the UK doesn't exchange driver info with other European countries, nothing i can do about it.

And here is the numbskull trying to cut across 4 lanes of queues, eventhough there was room to between the queues, if he wanted to join a different one. When the van driver to my right refused to let the Galaxy into his queue, is when he decided to do a 76 point turn and scrape my bumper.

I'd forgotten how nice it is to have a phone with a working camera!
