  1. Rev sensors

  2. Winter Tyres

    Bear in mind that for various reasons, you will always have mixed grip levels front to rear.
  3. RCA lead for video in on a phone?

    I don't think I've ever seen a phone that has a video-in feature, they all have video-out.
  4. E28 race car

    Thinking about selling my race car through lack of use. It's been stored indoors for the last couple of years - the engine was removed (con rod bearing went) so it'd be offered for sale without the engine. Huge spec - the roll cage is a work of art, it has a 100 litre fuel tank in the boot with swirl pot and Bosch pump, Gaz adjustable coilovers, 540i brakes with Pagid pads, new 16" alloys with new V70a tyres, OBP pedal box, remote servo, Racetech gauges, custom built 3.91 diff, plumbed extinguisher, electrical cut-off, removable steering wheel, lightweight battery, seat and harness, lightened bonnet and boot etc etc. Would be asking around £7k for the car without an engine. It previously ran an M30, then an M88/3. Either would drop in again. Wouldn't need much to make it road-legal if you wanted - a handbrake and a horn spring to mind, probably not much else. It won't appeal to many, but if you're interested then get in touch and we can talk details.

  6. Newbie with a E28 M535i

    Cool, I'm sure they're worth a try. 3.4 or 3.6 in the 996?

  12. M30B34 with S38 ITBs

    But not tuned M30 cost - you’re not fitting ITBs, cams, pistons, ECU etc for that money.
  13. M30B34 with S38 ITBs

    That's very left-field, and expensive to ship in from the US The sensible answer is to enjoy the M30 for what it is, or to swap in an M52B28. With the M50 manifold, BBTB and a map you're looking at 230bhp-ish for under £2k fitted.
  14. M30B34 with S38 ITBs

    An M88 refresh is about the same as all the work on the M30, but you get more power at the end of it. Yes, they're not easy to find, but they're out there.
  15. M30B34 with S38 ITBs

    Source an M88 and fit that instead. It just isn't worth the hassle and expense of trying to turn an M30 into an M88.
