  1. Can anyone help with the removal of the ignition switch. Mine seems to be either loose or faulty. I remover the lower cowel and several bolts that appear to be holdi v the upper cowel in place but it won’t come free. I can see what looks like loaction pins with washers that seem to make it impossible to remove. From what I can see the ignition switch is held by a grub screw which I believe is loose but I need to access the barrel to check it.

    Seems your M3 has suffered the same fate as my GTA. Been off the road 4 years now with no hope of it being finished any time soon. My E12 still has a lot of welding to be attended to on the floor. At least from the rear doors back it is now 100% solid.

    Looking great mate. Did a lot of the same work to mine a few years back. Disappointingly it looks oh so rusty again but hey ho. Should have powder coated.

    Wish I could help but sadly my dash hasn't been out otherwise it's the sort of thing that I normally do for future reference.
  8. Bumper corner arrived this weekend. Time to build it up
  9. Cheers Tim. Just got to clean it up and fit. Perfect
  10. The only BMW I've ever owned and will probably ever own. Never selling.
  11. All back together. Running much better. Adjusted throttle and stop so idles smoother. Pretty pleased with the white as well so might continue with the smaller rusty brackets. Really want the correct red fan for itso if anyone spots one can they let me know.
