    55 quid!!! i was quoted 200 for mine, thats why i left it for a while, thats just for the labour too! your ride looks awesome by the way, im sure it feels alot better too on those tight turns.

    my 1994 E36 318 connects to the front lower control arm and not the strut. does that mean i have the Msport suspension as i only have the standard lollipop bushes, not the offset ones, and the V5 doesnt mention it being a sport model. also when typing reg number into the insurance websites it finds it as a 318ise. although not badged or V5'd as that

    wouldn't worry to much about v5s, ive had hatchbacks that were on the v5 as saloons! dvla didn't seem bothered about it, seemed to see it all the time.
