Wow, they're tiny! What effect does that have on your speedo? Awesome price though!

The g60s have 195/45r15 on them - they're about half the sidewall of the standard e30 tyre to the left!

I got some 16" Megane steels that look mint on e30. They'll be up for sale soon.

What do people do about locking wheel nuts when fitting spacers? I have some 15mm hubentrics to fit which came with extended bolts but obviously didn't come with locking bolts....

I bought 12mm and 15mm spacers from Cutters sponsor and they came with locking nuts for an extra £6 per set

Let's see... not sure when the last time I posted here was.

1. Bought a brand new Renault Zoe ZE.

2. Spent obscene amounts of money fixing small things on the Mercedes 190E Cosworth.

3. Drove the Mercedes E240 to the Alps and back, twice.

4. Motorbike got stolen. Got insurance payment.

5. Bought an e46 325i for my little brother.

6. E93 got a puncture. £260 for a new tyre :/

7. Thinking of getting rid of most of my cars!

Let the garage wash it after they did a gearbox oil change.

Took delivery of a brake pad sensor, still waiting for the pads though. Rear pads need "attention now" or so the idrive says.

You drilled the holes for the wiring? Might be safer to do without the assy in place? I've got a 19mm wood bit that worked nicely if you're in need of parts?

Was driving on the A4 and a rock was on the middle lane. Could not avoid it. So had to go over it. Had a puncture. So left the car on the side street.

Came back after work to replace the alloy. Found this.

Got good new and bad news.

Good news tire is fine.

Bad news alloy is cracked in the centre.

The rocks impact has gone through the tire and into the alloy. :(.

Don't know if it can be fixed.

Black bbs alloys are back on.

Must say this, E46 still more beautiful from any angle than E90... No no offense, tho...

As a past e46 owner and now e90 owner I agree. Although I do like the e90.

Yup.

Also picked up a Chipex kit for some major stone chips.

Got to love the durability of bmw paint.

You used that chipex before mjn? Looks OK.

Good stuff. I hate our Dremel. Horrid tool.

You ordered the bi-xenon pins? They can be fitted easily afterwards, and running the wires takes about 10 minutes, if that. Can help if needs be with the coding. (Can be done with PA soft - NCS is still borked.)

You might find that they work fine with the ignition on, but when you start the engine, after a few seconds, they'll start pulsing/flickering. Free tomorrow PM (unless plans change) if they need doing.
