    Spent last weekend in Munich doing all things BMW. Went to the Museum and BMW Welt and visited BMW Classic before we came home. It was so good, happily do it all over again.

    Here's some pics from my phone, I'll probably post a bunch more when I get a chance.















    Got lucky at a dealership in Munich and BMW Classic, brought a load of plate frames back because they're cool as fuck.







    Today I decided to start clearing up some of the wiring in my engine bay, so that it's ready for when I take it home at some point to have the engine bay painted. The left hand side is almost how I want it, just need to remove some unwanted brackets and neaten up the headlight wiring. The right hand side will need a lot more thought and work, as that is where all the headlight loom is.





    I've got some engine raisers to fit as well as relocating the fuel filter, I'd like to take the car to Europe next year, so want to get these jobs done and out of the way for stress free driving.

    Got round to fitting some engine raisers today. Bit of a fuck around from the get go and I've still a bit more to do.

    Initially the thread on the engine mounts needed shortened, so took them to the work garage and set about them with the angle grinder.







    Forgot to take after pictures, because I was stressed about how much of a shit job refitting them was, ended up moving the rack, separating the UJ and partially dropping the subframe. I have some before pics, so I'll take some more when it's all back together.

    I also bought a super rare interior (for the UK anyway) from Germany which Bastien and hopefully myself are picking up next weekend. I'm really looking forward to having it in the car, I think it will look really great.

    Finished up on the engine raisers today. Proper faff with having to move the rack and subframe around, but they're in, so that's good. Nipped the fan off as well so I can take it into work and trim it down a few mm.

    Some comparison images, to give you and idea of how much it lifts the engine.









    The sump angles down slightly now at the back, so I am going to lift the gearbox a few mm as well. I've taken the mount off to be powdercoated and gearbox mounts are en route.

    I also found a rear Aero bumper for the daily not far from where I stay. So I picked that up last night. It is new old stock, however unfortunately it has seen better days. The previous owner had just screwed it on, so it is very wavy in places and the exhaust opening needs some work. But my pal reckons he can sort it, so I'm putting all my faith in him haha.







    Here is a picture I found in an extras brochure at Essen Motorshow at the weekend!

    My Rennstall gearknob arrived the other day from Seattle, USA. I am properly stoked with it, I've wanted one of these forever and I finally pulled the trigger on their Black Friday deals. It will look really good against the new interior.



    It snowed a lot today, so went out and minced about in the Touring. Got stuck a lot, but it was good fun!
