Well the lights still aren't installed (monday), the wheels go on tomorrow, suspension on the 6th. The new inconel exhaust finally arrived with a few other bits so I'll try to get that fitted monday as well.

Picked the car up drove it home anyway without the lights (ahh they're intake vents officer) .. with the test pipes, ESS tune, DSC tune and AFG intake.. all I can say is wow, such a different car, WOT in first off a rolling start just ends in massive wheelspin, so much quicker. Looking forward to the 305's on the back for a little more traction.


Slight change in direction as I've decided to take Dave up on his offer to head west and help me fit his SC.



But it'll be... a little more orange of course, a different kit but looking for insperation... I want to retain the V8 M badge.. maybe even some air brushing.


Here's the full install if you have a spare 15 minutes.

Your'e gong to need all the traction you can get
BTW when you fit the BBS there is a very slight ridge in the guard lining on the rears. Its where 2 sections join and is like a small bump. This needs to be trimmed, very easy job otherwise the wheels will do it for you

Good to see you've made the transition over from p-wrx Chris. Car is looking absolutely amazing, can't wait to see it up close.

Quick question, where did you source the reverse camera and who did the install for you?

So close but yet so far, the powder coating has left them a little tight to put on.. Another 'next week' job.





Meanwhile Santa came a few days early

New Tiller



The elusive RHD CF centre console



Inconel exhaust



Small but nice M hand brake


Along with some shadow chrome grills indicators and foot pedals. On ya Santa.

Got it from Bmretrofit.. Great service, really helpful, just got the mechanic to do it but it should be DIY. It's self coding.
