Toilet paper

Spare skiddies

heavy duty tape/zip-ties/wire for general repairs

Duck tape

Cable ties

Leccy tape

If you can't fix it with one of those three...

Quoted for truth :D:D:D

Some oil and a couple essential spanners (8mm 10mm and 13mm minimum) of course as you are all BMW enthusiasts you have the complete set in the boot lid don't you? :)

When we do the next one I reckon we should negotiate as a group for the use of a garage, plus agree who brings what tools etc. 12 cars all carrying similar "must-haves" Doh

I considered it but I think 225 fronts and 175 rears would have very interesting consequences :shock::lol:

I need to wear out the rears as previous owner fitted Turanzas not Potenzas. I haven't noticed a problem wet or dry but I may as well get the right ones. There is only one tyre in the world that fits the skinny fronts which is why most track focused owners pop on different front wheels plus 195 rubber ....

Needless to say, if I get new wheels they'll be black - in fact they'll be these plus R888s.

Haha, lol, there's an idea :twisted::twisted:

No, mind is made up as above. I need to do a track day or two in order to decide if it's worth the £1K 'investment' in what is not a track dedicated car. Current set-up perfectly good for road use.

Off out to wash it now. I know it'll look like poo at the end of the day but may as well start out clean ;)
