    Adams 320 loon

    as some of you know my Boston green loon smashed its clutch and gear box so she went to the lovely scrap yard

    so was on the look out for a new run about for a few months till i got the insurance pay out from the crash in dec so found this 320 loon in Montreal blue on gumtree for 300
    i thought yes this will see me over for a few months but the more i drive it the more i love it.
    Anyways the cars like i said its a blue 320i bottom of the range apart from the fog lights and sunroof
    its done 147000 no s/h a bonnet that looked like it was painted by a 5year old no carpet or sound dreading and no speakers.
    i do think it has been remapped at some point cuz its almost if not faster then the 323 and as u can see from the video it fit 60mph from 20mph in just over 6sec and red lined at 7000rpm (was going up hill) so going to get it put on the rollers with in the next month.

    so after owning it for a week iv done the following
    fitted my after market exhaust sounds lovely on the over run
    my full white and black leather
    fitted vented and drilled front disks with new pads
    repainted my green m3 front bumper and fitted
    gave her 2-3 washes and t-cuts

    anyways plans for her over the next few months
    buy and fit brand new coilovers (sold my old ones)
    BBS rc042 and rc041 (picking up on Monday the 25/6/12) white centers
    sand and repaint the tsw for winter
    fit 205/40/17 to the front wheels and 215/40/17 on the rear
    refit amber front indys and wire in us style running lights to fog lights
    ccf angel eys
    8k hids
    spacers
    give her a oil plug and filter change
    get front end repainted

    as u can see iv got a lot of plans for her so im hoping she will last longer then the 323

    so here is the photos iv got so far and a nice video

















    more updates to come

    big update for you all
    soo too start off got hold of a set of bbs rc041 and rc0042 in red with polished lip off stu


    next i got the coilovers off stu as well as he is breaking his 318 having a lil rubbing going on due too the 235/45/17 tyres and that the bumper is not on right but will be sorted soon when the 215/40/17 go on the rear and 205/40/17 on the front


    photos were taken before the rear was lowered

    amber indys were also put back on

    was going too get 20mm spacers as well but the bank made a fuck up

    hope u enjoy
