Well thers a bit of a long story that happend to the vert this year, starting in january in the snow when it was not a good time atall, i managed to crash into a lampost (avoiding 2 parked cars and a fence)
i managed to walk home (about 2 minutes away) get some sand and throw it under the wheels to get some grip and i managed to get the car home to the driveway!
Well going to bed very stressed and waking up in the morning thinking it must have been a dream i go down stairs to look at my pride and joy and unfortunalty it was no dream!
This is what i woke up to :(
since it happend within the next few hours i stripped it down to asess the damage!
Were it was such a slow motion crash i managed to aim were i was going to hit, it was a 15mph slide so i aimed for the one and only bmw badge as i knew at least i would miss the chassis legs and hopefully have less damage to deal with! when stripped down i managed to get a list made up
Things i needed were
3. Cross member
6. Nose cone
So that was my list, on ebay that night i see someone breaking a montreal blue coupe 10 minutes away as i ring him up seeing what he has lucky for me he had it all apart from the bumper + carrier and i said how much..... a quick pause and i heard 90 squid! bargin so i got them all! alltho they were not in the best condition atleast i could be back on the road! so i re-fitted some of the parts.
then i went to mstyle in essex and picked up a brand new replica m3 front bumper for 100 pound this included m3 lip and mesh, had in on the car for a few weeks running around in primer but back on the road to say the least.
Got a good friend of mine kevin (bimmerboy) to spray the bumper and nosecone (new) for me but the bonnet was getting me down as it had a good few dents and alot of rust around it! so as i was in pease pottage car breakers (bridges) i managed to pick up a green bonnet for 40 pound and its basically mint condition just need it respraying! A friend of mine picked up a 323i convert and got the mtec kit and wanted my mirrors so i decided to let him have them as i had a spare set of ac schnitzer mirrors ive had years but never got round to painting! Washed it yesterday and heres a few pics as it stands today.
and today at the breakers again i managed to get a 5litre washer bottle and got it fitted when i got home
Few other things ive done since the begining of the journel is
1. E46 M3 front brakes
2. E36 Miltek backbox welded to a 328 center section
3. Coilovers off, lowerd on brand new oem shocks and eibach pro kit.
4. Ac Schnitzer type III alloys 18x 8.5 all round Genuine
5. M50 manifold conversion (thank you ian)
