    Its a nightmare Gareth, when you buy new things and nothing goes to plan!!!

    We are in the process in moving home at the minute, so the car is last on the list....
    well.. i thought i could easily sneak a set of led bulbs in , plus its going into Cooper BM this week for a microfilter service.
    More will come soon

    Any new pics Craig2016?

    I got the side repeaters through, but I don't think they fit, the bulb holder is to near the front so doesn't locate in the existing hole properly, damn.

    I also got a carbon shark fin, but I'm not so sure now, what you think?

    Still to fit the Number plate holders, but need to get some new plates made, as the exisiting screw holes would be visible, in the holders.

    Umm, what else should I do?

    Hi Gareth

    I made some progress today, fitted the exhaust and carbon diffuser at a mates garage and then machine polished the bootlid and fitted my m-badge and shark fin. i'll get some pics up tomorrow.

    Need some opinions too I think the exhaust tailpipes are sitting too far out the back bumper looked mint when up on the ramp but now i see it on the deck i think it looks a bit chavy.

    Not sure on the carbon shark fin, why not stick it on and see how looks, sure it wouldn't be too big a drama to take it back off.

    Here you go Craig http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=330363754961 NO error codes at all and they have been in a few weeks.

    As for the exhaust, mine sits pretty flush with the bumper, i will get a pic up soon as i can.

    Hi Craig, P40L,

    I fitted the number plate surrounds on monday, however as the front bumper is fairly curved, it was a pain to fit, It wouldn't stay closed, then then hinges at the top snapped, so I'd guess I'd need a new one of those then!

    Not a great last few days all around then after my previous goings-on!!

    I'll place the shark fin on top & get a few pics after the cars had a good wash at the weekend, I'll post them, as your both fellow 320d owners, i'd be interested to get your opinions?

    I also plan on getting carbon mirror covers, what your thoughts on those?

    P40L, I had a look at those number plate xenons, were they easy to fit?

    Have either of you had your BM's lowered?

    Last Q, Have either of you had your brakes upgraded, I'm still really keen of the BMW Performance Brake Kit. My existing ones just look naff, as its sitting on 19's, so there somewhat lost behind them.

    Any more thoughts/ideas/suggestions let me know?

    Cheers again!! Gareth.

    P.s. Looking forward to those pics Craig!!

    ah, sounds like your having a bit of a mare gareth, I know what your talking about fitting those number plate holders with the curve on the bumper, luckily though mine never broke, but it was a bit dodgy lol.

    I think if your big on carbon and your gonna have a bit of a carbon theme on the exterior I don't think the carbon fin will look out of place.

    Im sure the bmw brake upgrade would look great on your car, not sure if it's where I would be putting my cash though as its a pricey bit of kit. There are cheaper kits I have a Hi-Spec 355mm 6 pot kit on my escort which is pretty good.

    Im sorting the exhuast tomorrow so i'll def put up some before and after pics.

    Cheers for the link for the L.E.D.s P40, I will be fitting them next time home.

    Just had a brain wave this morning! I'm gonna swap the back on to the front & vice versa, then I'll araldite the hinges on the rear one, as it lays completely flat.

    I've had the smoked indicators a few weeks now, but may give M Style a call & see what they say?

    I know the brakes are expensive, but the look great & the standard calipers just look naff!

    I'm keen on the carbon mirror covers, but just think the carbon shark fin may be going to far?

    Alright lads

    The leds took 2mins to replace, very easy to do.

    Gareth with your carbon theme you have going on what about the carbon boot spoiler?

    Mine is just on the standard M Sport springs, not sure how much lower they are to yours..
