    Refurbished wheels are back and fitted up with new semi slicks all around. Fitment of the e39 M5 wheels on the e46 M3 is spot on. Next up I'll fit the Fancywide rear diffuser when it turns up. This may still be a while away as I think it shipped from Russia.

    New wing mounted, just waiting on replacement stainless hardware.

    Wheels back from the Wheel Fix It too, I left the colour choice up to them - gotta say I'm impressed! Still not 100% sure how these'll look on the car, it's a bit hard to visualise and I can't find anyone online who's running the same combo on e39 m5 wheels. Also got some new tyres for these wheels. The first set of these Zestino's were epic, lasted me almost 4yrs and tonnes of heat cycles. The fronts are running the softer RS compound this time (140 treadwear vs 240 on rear). I ended up having a fair amount of tread still left on the medium compound ones when they went hard, lets see how the soft ones go.

    Not bad! Grant at GT Refinishers has done a great job. Next up the custom wing brackets onto the factory bootlid and fit the rear diffuser when it arrives. And the M5 wheels once they're back from the repairers!

    Originality is key to resale value.

    These wheels are now off to the professionals to repair and repaint properly...! The plastidip has lasted a couple of years, but they're pretty tatty. Working on the colour at the moment.

    Here you go, I'll take some side-ons in different light next time I take it out.

    Progress..! I've swapped over the bootlid to the OEM facelift one & disassembled the spoiler in prep for GT Refinishers to mount up my new struts. Also ordered a new rear diffuser from Fancywide in Russia. Also had the glass tinted in super-light 50% film to help protect the interior trim by Seth at Tint Lab. This is well within legal limits (being much lighter than 35%), and looks quite classy whilst not sacrificing heat rejection or UV protection.

    New wing struts ready to go, need to (finally) fit up the GTR vents and new bonnet & bumper. Dusted this car off after a lockdown under cover, drove it in to work & planning next steps for the build. With the rebuilt engine, new diff & drivetrain parts now installed this car 'should' handle a little more power.
  10. ^^ what Glenn said. Not to lead you astray but I've had similar errors in my '04 and it turned out to be a wheel speed sensor. It could be a few things, best get it diagnosed

    It's not hard but if you haven't done before definitely see a pro. If you're looking for a recommendation, I'd say Seth at Tint Lab (used to be Car Folie). He has extensive experience in this - I know, because he did my rear screen a few times way back when. If you want to get a hold of him, www.tintlab.co.nz or just come and see me (his new shop is at OCD).

    Yep. Leaves much less residue over. Downsides are it can lift fabrics (as it loosens glue). Steamer, plastic blades and prepsol made this job much easier than it should have been.

    Pro tip: if you're planning on removing tint, do it before you weld in a rollcage 😁 This is a job I've been putting off for a LONG while.
