    Hi y'all.

    Had my beemer for 4 years now and still going strong (touching large piece of wood).

    Looking for some advice on replacing my front shocks. I have the original Bilstein sports (yellow) and the right front has just locked up. Does anyone know if the hottuning shock kit (x4) on eBay (£165 delivered) is any good please?

    Don't really want to splash out £300 on new Bilsteins!

    (And it's not sunny in Swansea - sounds better than drizzle and cloudy though )

    Cheers Joe! I found this 328 4 years ago with 26k on it. It must have been in storage for years. Served me very well, on 67k now. It's getting to the age now where the 'consumables' are starting to wear out like bushes and shocks. The potholes don't help either! This forum should help me replace some parts cheaper than the dealers hopefully.

    Thanks for the hottuning link. Have you used them?

    Cheers Amos! I was looking for a midnight blue with cream leather but when I saw this I had to have it. Doesn't show dirt easily and is ageless. Only thing it lacks is cruise control.

    Is that a glass roof on your M3? How did you manage that?!?!
