No just wires to check and use laptop to put light out.


Whilst the Bowden cable was fitted I also had my newer pump fitted and this had a new accumulator so it now primes by the time your bum hits the seat. It's shiney, really need to detail the engine bay as it looks all out of place

So today was spent pissing around trying to diagnose why there was an airbag light on, assumed this was due to my drivers seat getting caut on something when I moved house as that's roughly when the light came on.

Turned out to be a passenger pretensioner cable had snapped out of the clip.


Which up close looks like this:

Saw him near Halfords the others day in Slough.


But yeah white is modern, clean, light and solid which is what I want. It's rare but not impossible so won't look like a Max Power car.

It will make the interior look a better contrast as well as the roof.

That looks dated on the alpinas, they should only be on E30s imo.

I think the black softtop would break the colour up nicely and a hardtop isnt needed.

I wouldn't be getting a hardtop for looks, it would be to have a heated rear screen and not having the roof freeze in the winter.

Here's a white coupe that looks nice, be tempted to paint the motorsports black:

White coupes always look good, its the cab that iv never been so keen on in white.

Youre going to do it no matter what so you may aswell just do it and whatever doesnt look right you can start to change things then. Keeping it standard and on standard motorsports cant look wrong, especially when it'll be spotless.

I've pretty much convinced myself yes

Seeming as I have spent so much cash on it I feel I may go the whole hog now.

Need to know how everyone makes there arches so clean inside? Paint them with some sort of stone chip guard or something??

Jambo only do it if you can see yourself keeping it for long term ownership.

Lot's of if you decided to part with it this time next year.

I contemplated having a front end respray as due to high motorway mileage my front end is stone chipped to buggery. However I do not think it will really add any value to the car and i'll be losing so much when I sell.
