The hospital glued it not myself. They don't stitch the face unless completely necessary.
It's a super neat cut now.

Car does look good, but that shortened front plate makes it look like it's got a Hitler tache.

Well i took my car to have the tracking sorted at a garage my friend recommended, they had tracked his lowered e60 5series.
it clearly isnt as low as mine though i struggled getting on the ramp and then once on they couldnt get the laser onto my wheel should have checked that bit first.... nevermind.
anyway as i had the spare time now i fitted my splitter.
decided on a subtle splitter to finish the lower front end off, always thought it looked odd without one so i purchased a skoda fabia one, cheap enough too.

luckily we have just demolished a slight wall around my driveway so used that to my advantage......





Handy i thought.





REALLY hope it doesnt come off, shit load of self tappers will act as a stinger

certainly lower than my corsa was now







think im going to fit my 15mm spacers on the rear but one wheel seems to sit closer to the arch than the other so not sure they will fit worth a try though




need to find an oldschool garage now to sort my tracking with the drive on graph things or drive manchester and pay awesome gti a fortune to do it.

still need to sort my brake pressure sensor then hopefully ill be getting a backbox delete made for some more noise, far too civilised for a 3.0 sports car!

cheers guys

Buy mine, I want a phoenix yellow m3.

Like the splitter gav. You're a brave man, that'd get ripped off straight away here.

Wheels don't look too far in on the rears.

Was the splitter an exact fit or is it just bendy enough to stick on anything?

NO BEN get a z4m roadster!

its probably going to get ripped off up here tbh, roads are a joke. i just avoid the awkward speed bumps tho.


does one of your rear wheels camber closer to the outer arch than the other? only shows itself on certain gradients but the passenger side always sits close :S

came rolled up, its bendy enough to manipulate into shape while you screw it on, just needed trimming off the end as it was too long.

clio sport owners use them too, pretty identical to the expensive ones they need

Yeah 2.0 ecoboost but about 30bhp more.

2.5 inline 5 made a lovely noise. I do miss it, but not the fuel economy

Next mod/S Gav? Need some ideas for mine. I've got to a point where anything on mine will cost silly money.

Fancy sorting the exhaust note out, but even that's 200 quid.
