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

Its a shame they didnt do the 335 in a manual.

Didn't have a box strong enough for all those NMs!

...at least not one they were willing to warranty!

Your bang on right there. Stage 1 Map seems to be as much as I can do with the 330d. There doesn't seem to be an Uprated clutch out there that's any stronger then the standard clutch and box.

hopefully in the summer July \ August time. just come back from France so short of cash right now to do any more work on the car. I also get 6 weeks off in the summer so gives me time to get stuff fitted.

might opt for one of these for now as £800 for the CSL tailgate is way off yet. Can get one of these smaller tailgate spoilers for £80, painted and posted.

Just found out that DPF removal on Diesels are now an MOT failure !

Thats a bugger cause these seem to react well to the removal of the DPF. Wonder if i can bore one out so it looks like its still there for MOT purposes ?

decided to ditch the older E90 rear end look and opted for the newer LCI rear conversion. picked up the rear tailgate and lights for a decent price. Will fit over the weekend.

Genuine tailgate, rear spoiler and led rear lights fitted. Gives a much more modern look as these are on the 2012 saloons.

Just need the rear lights coded as the indicators are blinking like when you have a bulb out. The car doesn't pick up the led voltage drop.

well if i can figure out what options i have to upgrade the drivetrain iam gunning for more power. Found uprated turbos, intercoolers, injectors etc, but struggling to find a clutch and gearbox that can cope with it. Iam looking to gain another 40-50 BHP and another 100NM of Torque. Already found a big Brembo brake setup.

currently getting some spacers to give the wheels a wider stance then looking to drop a further 20mm. these sit pretty low already with the m Sport springs but i want to go a little lower.
