    MTOY is back on the 18's now for a bit. While they have tread left, the tyres are a bit old and they don't handle as well as the INVOs on my CSL wheels, but that's an easy fix with replacements! Pretty keen to try a set of NT-05's given how I use this car (and how few km's I got out of the INVO's I might as well!). Always keen on suggestions? Current tyres and sizes below Front 245/40/18 Michelin Pilot Sport (factory sizing 225/45/18) Rear 265/35/18 Goodyear Eagle F1 (factory sizing 255/40/18). IMG_6752-HDR by Christian Taylor, on Flickr I could even step the rears up a little in width to 275's and maybe 40 profile to get the same 'chunky' look as on the fronts. I'm a big fan of more tyre where possible, and the fronts look spot on imo. I should have the room in the rear arches for this, even under load and want to avoid spacers if at all possible. Replacement fender grille and badge also turned up - in it goes Fronts by Christian Taylor, on Flickr

    had my local trusted independent Page European replace the rear springs with 325i Touring springs, and replace the top and bottom spring pads. And an alignment. Only a couple of short drives today, but it feels a lot better. Happy days.

    I throught I was only certing my new seats and new rear adjustable control arms, but no eveything gets rechecked, suspension, brakes, wheels and spacers. And the laws have changed re spacers when I first certed the spacers if under 15mm they didn't need to be attached. Now they do, so I wasn't sure what else had changed. I'll be updating my project page soon it will make interesting reading for anyone contemplating upgrading and certing their vehicle.

    Hi guys, After hunting around for a nice E46 M3 for quite a while I finally found one worth taking up. Usually I buy my cars in original condition so I can do my own thing to them but I feel this one was worthy of an exception. This used to be Charl's M3 as some of you will know (not sure if he's a member or not). The interior colour scheme isn't exactly my first choice but it's actually growing on me! I'll add some of my own photos this week but will post a few below. Details: -2002 Factory Manual -145,000km -19x10 / 19x9" 3-Piece Work VS -BC Gold Coilovers -CSL Genuine Carbon Fiber Boot -Carbon Fiber Front and Rear Splitters -AFe Air Intake -Agency Power Exhaust -New Clutch -New Rotors/Pads

    Can't speak for the coupe. But it appears to be an option on the Sedans. Mate had a 318i that didn't have fold down rear seats. My 328i does fold down. (Both PFL) Would imagine the same would go for the coupe?

    I'd seen this car earlier in the year and got to chat to the owner. Despite the kms I think this is a very good example and has been well maintained (well what the owner said anyway). They guy who owns this was a 'Holden' fan until he got an e39 540 and was impressed by it. Then he got this - and it just blew his mind and any holden/ford/pretty much anything out there! I'm surprised that he is selling this tbh. Oh - I think the 540 was given to his son so they have both! Anyone interested in an e60 M5 so I can buy this!!??

    535i is not available in a wagon Paul, all wagons are facelift so M50 or M60 engines.

    The link between wife's happiness and car ownership is greatly overstated. Keep the car and address other drivers of happiness!

    certainly, though making it a sleeper didn't give them a license to make it look butt-ugly!
