When i bought it then it was like this:





whats happened meanwhile? well from the "tuning part" i've installed mtech front springs, M5 front bumper, 17x8+17x9 Style32 rims with 235/45R17 and 255/40R17 tires, swapped out chrome with original shadowline (window, door and bumper stripes), cutted out all 4 catalystic converters and disabled EGR. also removed tow hitch :D some little bulb and LED tuning and so on.

on the "fix the old car part" ive done: 1 stabilized , 2 wheel bearings , 2x front shock absorbers, 1 tie rod, all 4 front wishbones, all filters and motor oil , rail fuel pressure valve , servotronic valve , fixed tank pump and other little things...

still it has broken ABS "brain" and servotronic doesnt work sometimes . also PDC doesnt work and theres some old/weared things on the rear axel. also i still havent tinted the windows and i want rear M bumper aswell bigger rims.
much to do :)

Rear tires changet to 245/40R18
also coded park light to signal laps with headlights on also (with BMWScanner) and unchecked "check park lights" error. so it will not show the error on dash

Drivesaft last "joint" was very worn and caused vibration on heavy acceleration so i bought used drivesaft from scrapyard and changed it - its OK now.
also oil+filter change (liqui moly 5w40 and knecht filter).

rear schocks also replaced and most important - car is remapped now :D +25kw/80nm ( i didnt want the 100+ nm map because im worried about my stupid GM automatic transmission).

i used to be 9.0-9.1sec 0-100km/h , now its 8.3-8.4seconds.





also bought new front numberplate because old one was ugly and i deleted the number plate holders. both front and rear are now attached with double-side tape.
