  1. its had a full restoration. Does look clean. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. faded??? eh?? save the money and have it machine polished / corrected. Far better. Wraps never last, cowboys knife the clearcoat whilst installing wrap, and they look cheap imo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. egr delete via software, ( put blanking plate in aswell ). Dpf delete ( spools up waaaay quicker!! ) Swirls blanked new egr thermostat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Why the hell are people so obsessed with figures????? read your posts back, it sounds ridiculous!! take it on how it drives, not from someone telling you " good news sir, you have 251 bhp." Look at service items re: poor power, Avon telling you they don't know why says to me they aren't really interested. Clean your map sensor, clean maf sensor, a good service ie. fresh oils, new fuel filter etc. If as you suspect its now sorted after turbo seals, then great!!! don't get hung up on figures. And don't waste money on rolling road sessions, put that money on service items for car. The map they have put on will be generic, therefore dont think you will get a more powerful map elsewhere, waste of time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. pure coincidence the car wash! blame culture? [emoji23] Your CCC unit ( idrive ) has failed. Plenty of sellers on ebay will repair for about £250 all in. You send them the unit, its back in two days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. So, after the lease Tekna Leaf went back, a short spell in a Cooper S proved too small for mumsy duties. Sold on first viewing. Best bang for your buck, these come quite high on my list, sharp styling, good space, great mpg, bit leftfield!! Saab 9-3 150 1.9 diesel. Needed a good clay bar / detail / paint correction etc, but a few mods in and all is well: So far: Corrected paint, fitted xenon kit, added bluetooth bury cradle, led rear number plate lights, and best part, £60 of new alloys off gumtree with tyres like new!!! Before: ( detail had occurred by this point, loads of nasty scratches out ) El cheapo wheels added: Halfway through hid upgrade! look at the difference: Car has also recently been cambelted / waterpump, full front suspension overhaul, exhaust flexi replaced, gear linkages replaced, All this for the princely sum of £1500. 135,000 miles, feels great.

  12. Its had the swirl flap modification kit with the new bushes etc, so swirl flap wise I should be good. Also has an egr reducing plate on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Many thanks, will note that down. It was done less than 5,000 miles ago, so hopefully nothing to worry about in the near future. Engine seems very frugal too!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  16. I loved my C when I had it, wrote off early last year in heavy fog, gutted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  20. it requires full BMW service history Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Ok no probs!! I have a M-ask system which I was thinking of reverting to and selling the CIC system to free up money for other mod's. Further info be appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. will this fit e60 CIC? and what coding is needed to get it to operate? can i just add a windscreen mounted aerial, any info regarding how to install?? or where etc? am interested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I have a slight vibration again ( changed discs and pads last time ). But notice this completely goes when braking going down hill, with the weight up front it completely eradicates it?? My thoughts were lower arm bushes etc. But I too find things improved in extreme cold temps and after hard braking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. 11x 50w = 550w vs 55w ( assume each led is 5w. ) No change? struggle to believe it. Plus you set your direct debit up and forget about it. Did you check your meter average kw/h consumption across a month before and after change? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. it is no different to any other car in terms of fitting an hid kit. You will be able to fit one easily and no doubt has been done many times before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
