Just a quick introduction...
Have owned my BM for about 6 months now and its a fantastic car (when it works right!)
I came from a vauxhall astra and was a heavy user on astraownersclub.com so know how forums and stuff work.
am also a member on e46fanatics.com - but as most of you probably know that mainly an american orientated site. so will be picking your brains here for some local advice
anyway, heres my car:
my wheels which really need a refurb, and some new centre caps (the BMW centre cap isnt on 2/4 of them now...)
and changed my rear lights to LEDs:
and unfortunately the whole car looks like this:
Need to sort out the paintwork, but need a PC and some experience, neither of which i have :(
I bought some nut covers and polished it recently so it looks a little better...
If anyone could tell me what size the centre caps are that would be appreciated, s i need to get some new ones.
As i say I came from a vauxhall astra and on that car there was a very cheap mod to de-restrict the airbox, with the ability to put it back as standard without much work, but i cant seem to find anything like that on this forum
I bought a K&N panel filter but i cant really feel any difference...
I also bought a set of NGK Iriduim plugs which i fitted and made the car run a little smoother for about a week...
Also bought a quick shifter link and a shorter "m" gear knob which im hoping should work quite nicely together. But of course, i never actually got round to fitting the shorter linkage... probably going to sell it now.
any advice for simple upgrades off other models is sorely appreciated...
also, final thing...
i want an exhaust system cat-back, something not too loud, but less restrictive... suggestions appreciated. have had a quote of a custom cat-back from MIJ exhausts in walsall of £329 fitted... was wondering how powerflow are on BMW's and any other exhausts aroiund this price range?
