  1. My 03 clubsport now on 66k, was on 43k roughly when I got it 2½ years ago. Genuine mileage too luckily. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. I haven't been for a few years, I was hoping to go this year for my stag do but its not gonna happen 😔 Brilliant weekend there though, mad Friday is just nuts and the racing is top drawer. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the replies guys. Seems it was the starter motor again. Bought a new one and had it changed and luckily all is working well again👍 Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. I did think possibly the alternator but haven't had it checked yet. Battery I'm sure is fine, the AA checked that last week and said it was fine. I've also spoken to my garage over the phone and he suggested a bad earth from my stereo but I'm sure I didn't have to earth it when I fitted it and 100% had no issues since I fitted that 2 years ago.

  5. Hi all, my starter motor failed last Monday evening out of the blue (car was running perfectly and then just wouldn't start!). This was replaced yesterday with a second hand starter from a very well respected breakers but now yet again doesn't want to start. Picked up from the garage earlier and it was fine and started first time without fault, got back home and an hour later I have nothing. Sounds like a booming noise from the speakers inside when I turn the key so may be an electrical fault somewhere but I'm at a loss to what it could be. £200 down already on starter and fitting to now find I'm back where I started. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be the issue? I'd appreciate the help. Thanks in advance. Ashley Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Didn't end up getting tracking done today unfortunately, had my rear tyres fitted this morning and found that the inside of my fronts were almost down to the wire!! So 2 fronts ordered in for tomorrow and another £200 gone😣 Kwik-fit believe it or not have given a very good deal for the alignment so I will probably use them...Although I am very wary of their work.

  7. Cheers guys👍 I've rung a few places that I've been told about now and have been quoted a lot less than indigo quoted so hoping to go get it done tomorrow. New tyres being fitted in the morning then on to the tracking. Fingers crossed all will go well. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. That's what I thought tbh. They've been on my list of things to do for 2 years so as I have just had a shoulder op there was no better time really. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Hi all. Had all new shocks and bushes fitted this week so I'm now in need of 4 wheel alignment. Hunter systems seem to have the best right up but I'm struggling to find one near me. I live in south Wales (Caerphilly area) and Indigo Gt have the system but can't fit me in for 6 weeks. Can anyone recommend somewhere to do a top job but sooner? Also what sort of price should I be looking at paying for this? Thanks in advance. Ashley. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Expensive few days for my clubsport too....new shocks all round circa £300, new bushes (all bar the subframe bushes) circa £250 and £380 to fit them. New black kidney grilles fitted this morning as the chrome ones look naff imo circa £50. And now I need 2 rear tyres and 4 wheel alignment.....oh and to top it off I think I need new disks and pads up front!! Ouch. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. I can recommend cmwheels too, got my CSL reps from them and got a good deal. Definitely worth giving them a call. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. So I've just realised I've not put an update on here for over 12 months!!! That's despite being on the forum practically every day. Over the last 12 months I have done very little if I'm honest. Changed the rear bulbs as they were an advisory on my last MOT....the only advisory if I remember correctly and other than that I've just been keeping her clean and tidy. My last post I mentioned about the sunroof, well I've still done nothing about it lol. Maybe this summer I will get it done but who knows?! I've had it 'looked at' by a company just around the corner from me b word for it.other than that it's just gone through another MOT today and the only advisory is 'uneven wear on front tyres', I knew this as I still haven't had it tracked since fitting my lowering springs and the wheel change. Who said bmw's are expensive eh. I've had 12 months of trouble free motoring:-) Cheers Ash. Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  13. Brilliant, cheers guys. Cooling system was changed about 15 months ago....water pump gave up so replaced all that then. Brake fluid will also be done this time I forgot to mention that. Air filter is an uprated panel filter changed not too long ago and that's still fine. Will get the power steering fluid changed this time round too then. Thanks again.

  14. Evening all. I'm after a bit of advice, my clubsport is due a service and is going in next week. I'm going to supply all the parts so my question is what do I need to get? I've done about 13000 miles since the last service (this time last year) and on that service I basically did everything.....oil, oil filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, air filter is uprated, spark plugs. Would it be recommended to replace everything again or just go with an oil and filter change? Sorry for the stupid question but I don't really want waste money that can go towards my respray;-) Oh and the car is just ticking over 60000 miles so not a high miler if that helps. Thanks in advance. Ashley Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  15. Stunning car. I have been trying to convince myself that I don't need an m3 and I should keep my clubsport.....seeing this and the velvet blue clubsport behind has just made me change my mind again lol. Beautiful car and fair play it looks immaculate. Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
