    Just saw these! Overkill? https://www.owendevelopments.co.uk/article/157/murrayclamps/ or just cheapies... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-T-Bolt-Silicone-Turbo-Boost-Pipe-Hose-Clamp-Heavy-Duty-Stainless-Steel-54-62-/391261500961

    Nice one. I’d run a junior hacksaw at an angle across the clip and replace with a jubilee or more preferable are the superclamps. Not sure if the size you require? https://www.asap-supplies.com/jubilee-superclamp-hose-clamp-416728

    Kick in the rusticles

    Good to hear that you’re trying it yourself. If you have questions fire away. The mig forum is a good place too for technical advice and those guys will advise on your issue just from clear pics. Remember, make sure you’ve taken the job back to clean metal if you can and listen for that frying bacon sound. It’s actually a good description. my lad was welding recently for his first time the other side of a fence and I told him to turn down the speed and make sure the shield was was close enough to his work and he asked how I knew.....you could hear the stutter as the wire was pushing the gun away from the work piece. I couldn’t even see him working!

    No problem. Itll still have a warranty.

    Quiet Tyres?

    If I can offer an option? Ghost Chrome. Almost like original but different. Black behind and between the spokes but still silver with a darker tint. http://www.perfectadent.co.uk/Gallery/Gallery_Ghost.html

    Excellent deal. Stick a drum of flux cored wire in the cupboard then when you run out of gas swap it to gasless. You WILL run out of gas at the most inopportune time! Invest in an argon regulator and a bottle of argoshield light 5% as it’ll last longer than a small hobby bottle and welds cleaner than pub gas and welds will be less porous as argon is an inert gas. gas bottle can be rented. Google BOC volkszone offer.

    Ah, see, right there is YOUR opinion. In my eyes the 135 MV2’s are a nicer wheel and the 172’s even more so (but then I am biased, running 19” staggered Ghost Chrome 172 spyders) so the subject of wheels is very subjective, even emotive.

    Whining noise from turbocharger area

    Nice one, cheers for the update.

    This was as of yesterday when the Beemer got collected and the camper left to have the rims redone. The suspension still has more drop to go if required. My mate mentioned about another inch or two. It’s lower than most in my area anyway. The front could do with coming down a little more but then it’d be nose down. It’s level just now.

    The Stance+ coil over kit is spot on. It’s perfect. I had it fitted. Cost £239 (iirc) and my mate charged me around a ton to fit them. The originals were just lowered springs and that was seriously crashy, especially so with 255/35/20 rubber with virtually no give in them. It’s night and day better now but still sits at a similar height. Ill fit the same to my next van.

    I think the complete set of caps with sticky M badges were £13? yeah, the wife said she was on edge until she parked it in the drive! she said it can stay there til I get home . she has her own car anyway.

    Wife just collected it. Needs the new caps and M stickers fitting to finish it off.
