    MOT, new brake discs, pads, tyres, arch roll and wider rears

    Hey

    I treated my 330ci to something special today.

    -An MOT
    -Meyle brake discs front and rear
    -Pagid pads front and rear
    -Pagid brake wear sensors
    -Vredestein Ultralac Sessanta 235/35/19 and 265/30/19
    -VMR V710 et 42 (machined) 10j 19"
    -Rear arch roll

    It was a straight through pass on MOT with no advisories

    I was running Enduro Runways (which are absolutely poo in wet and dry) and 9.5" VMR V710. I wasn't happy with the concave of my rear 9.5" VMRs so I part exchanged them and upgraded to 10" instead. The 10" only come in et 38 so I had 4mm or so machined off to reduce offest to et 42. Arches were rolled and all new gooides fitted.

    Here are some pics

    Fitting the tyres in the back was a bit of a challenge

    Thank you @Stal1878 The pics don't do justice. The stance is so agressive. I was smiling and laughing so much when I saw the MOT tester drive my car. It looked mental

    Discs were 140 delivered from c3bmw.co.uk He price matched an ebay seller.

    I know. I wanted to get them done but total bill today was 478 so couldn't justify spending more. I haven't even got jack stands so can't do them myself yet. Will get round to it at some point. Thanks for the suggestion @simonsays

    Ha! I've been dreaming about e46 M3, e9X M3, e39 M5, e60 M5, for a while but decided I haven't really got the funds for them so will be keeping my 330ci for at least another year. Trying to be sensible and save some money.
