From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.

Ok, so i retrofitted a genuine BMW 12v outlet in the boot, so i can run appliances in the boot particularly a mini fridge. I collect a small 15L 12V fridge from maplin for £40 and it fits the boot just nice. There are 2 anchor points in the boot so i will use a bungee cord to keep the fridge in place.

Cars also booked in tomorrow morning for a custom 335D style exhaust.

Ok, so the Genuine BMW performance diffuser wasn't exactly a straight fit. It wouldn't sit flush, like in the picture of this blue one.

Image

A bit of digging around on the internet and i found info that suggested you have to trim your rear bumper to make it fit. So thats what i did.

A few pics with the new BMW Performance rear dffuser, Style Dynamics custom 335 exhaust and some interior shots

added a few decals today.

My AC Schnitzer rep top spolier has an indent in it for a badge. would of been better if it wasn't there, but it is, so i filled it with a AC Schnitzer decal, like the original would of had. not a perfect fit, but you wouldn't know unless you went in right close.

Image

Also added a ODK detailing splat sticker to the bottom o/s of the rear window

Had my 4 wheel laser alignment done by a company that use the Hunter Alignment machine (same as BMW).

Steering wheel wasn't centered and handling was all over the place. The alignment print out showed why with 10 adjustments needed to the camber, caster and toe.

Feeling much much better to drive now

Image

Also fitted a genuine BMW Natural Air starter kit vent mounted air freshener

If the car was any other colour then black i would of painted it gloss black. Ive seen these colour coded black the same as the car and i really don't like it. All the original ones are left just as the grey plastic i think iam just leaving it tbh
