So finally i ve found some time to start my project thread for the M3
I supposed to be at work today but as its overtime and we were cleaning so i decided that i m not gonna do it and gone home!
Made me a coffee so i m ready to write few words now
Its been a few months now that i m a happy owner of this beauty and i must to say that the car is just brilliant!
Handles very very good and the grip is just insane on michelin ps3 rubber!
I enjoy every mile done in this car
I had few bm`s before but nothing can compare to this m3!Its so raw and brutal sometimes when you chase the red line and press it really hard going through the bends! i absolutely love it!
But then if you want to take it steady and go for a nice ride she comfortably gets you to the destination without a hassle and you dont feel tired!
Thanks to Steve the car has few very nice mods! (most of you know this car pretty well anyway but a bit of info for new members)
Bilstein B6 dampers
HiSpec Motorsport Billet 4 front brakes with braided hoses
Dave F induction kit
I ve decided that i not gonna skimp on this car so i use indy garage called Autohaus Diagnostic run by 2 ex bmw main dealer master technicians.its a small garage with only 2 ramps but they have all tools and right knowleage with experience to follow!
So i am 100% sure that my car is in good hands!
Time for few pics (sorry for poor quality!)
In winter mode
I like the look of the car on those alpina rep wheels but i bought some sunflowers for winter cause i want to keep the car oem+
They are in very poor condition so for now they are in my garage waiting for full refurbish and i m gonna paint them anthracite or dark metal steel!
I did few bits through the cold months
New gearbox and diff oil
Checked and adjust the valve clearances
New cam cover gasket seal as was slightly leaking
Few months later i bought a nice set of bbs style 5`s of Tim and decided to fit them when the weather improve!
I always liked the style 5`s so they are definitely staying with me
Job done the car is on the driveway
On next day i went to work for a night shift and in da morning i came to see this
Not reall good to drive the car on summer tyres in this conditions hehe at least few small drifts cheered me up
Few pics from northampton meet
One of the best part of the meet Enda works his magic on my car!
I was very very impresed with the end result!
Looks like the car breaths better and she spins much faster!
The throttle response also improved and the pedal feels more sensitive now!
Then time come to do few more bits so again i dropped the car of at my garage
I replaced the complete clutch
Gearbox linkeage with new bush pin and shft ring
I ve tried to fit the z3m short shifter but apparently its too long for my box and its catching the propshaft so i had to go back to standart one ( z3m lever is for sale btw )
Old propshaft coupling
And changed the wheels as i wasnt happy with how the car handled on style 5`s!
When i was going a bit faster through the bends the wheels were catchingh rear wheel arches so its back on contours!
Thanks for looking
