Cheers guys

Wasn't me in Hamilton mate, no

Some daytime pics as promised



















New tyres and spacers for the rears are a must.

Rear arches rolled and 12mm spacers fitted. 15mm spacers were just catching on acceleration. Maybe a change to 235/35/19 (same as front) from the 255/30/19 at a later date will allow the 15mm spacers on.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Was very close to swapping the car with a member from here, but we didn't go through with it in the end. I'm kind of glad as this is an absolute pleasure to drive and own.

Not updated for a while with recent pictures.

Had it on a display stand at the Scottish Car Show in July. Some people took pics of the car, some difference a decent camera makes to the cars image.



















Took some pictures of it outside the house beside my 172 track car. Excuse the dodgy parking, i had the garage open to move 5m lengths of wood to the back garden to do the decking.







Picked the car up yesterday after receiving its Inspection 1 level service. All ok but car was needing some brake pads all round. Had them supply and fit EBC Red Stuff pads due to the recommendation of the senior mechanic at the garage (also an E46 M3 owner)

The extra bit they done was fit a cat back Milltek Stainless Exhaust system. I bought the system pre-owned with failed welds on the back box. The garage repaired the welds and fitted the system for me. The tailpipes look loads better, and the car sounds much much better.











Small video clip as well

Up next - saving for the CSL boot lid, rear diffuser and front bumper. Also want to upgrade the stereo system as its showing its age.

Absolutely love the color and condition of this car. Wheels set it off also. The 235 on 9.5 is not women friendly lol, most stretch ive ever had was 265 on a 10.5 and she kerbed the hell outta them! The csl bumpers and lid will make this car insane! Good luck with the plans. Keep photos coming

Car is looking stunning bud. Sounds well with the Miltek, not heard one on an M3 before. Funny how close your private plate is to mine :nice:
