    Give the car a look over again today and removed the BMW badge from the side of the M badge on the back and removed the M badge from the front grille. Put the back of the car on the ramps and found the diff bush quite worn so it will need replacing. Think its running the M-Sport suspension, may be springs that make it low. Also noticed a sticker on the chassis under the bonnet that says its a an Individual. Going to remove the glass over the two round lenses within the front lights to give the lights a better look as my mate has done this with his previous M3's and M5 and it looked better.

    Did a bit of research and the bush is a rear beam bush, maybe that is causing the play/wheel movement as its proper worn, think the bottom of the bush is completely worn away. The sensor may be a brake sensor and not an abs sensor as there are no warnings on the dash.

    The dakar yellow one was silver originally as well, soooo much nicer in yellow! I really like this car, but the M badges all over do it no good at all! Maybe black grilles would be sweeter on top too.

    I want to replace the grilles and badges with the carbon ones as they look well, going to spray the mirrors and see if they look better. Might have to fit some motors in them as they don't have any. Giving the car a full service over the weekend as its overdue by 1-2k and has full service history and I'm going to have a look at the brakes. Failed MOT on emissions, front brakes imbalanced and rear brake efficiency. Hoping its just sticky calipers.

    I'd go for a plasma dial kit instead, just look at this one.
