    Swapped Supersprint mufflers back on yesterday, along with the e9x 18's and one of the race seats. It's still half practical that way 🤣 Not sure I had this exhaust installed correctly since new - it's nowhere near as rattly. Sounds good.

    Now with CSL wheels, no stripes. Clean and classy. Nostripes4 by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Nostripes6 by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Nostripes3 by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Nostripes2 by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Nostripes1 by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Let's see how long this lasts..!

    Stripes removed for a bit, still waiting on my factory front grilles to turn up. Front lip already pretty muched Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr New factory filters turned up, but I'm liking this factory exhaust + K&N intake combo. The noise is impressive, was completely drowned out when I had the Supersprint exhaust on hence I'd never heard it before. Sounds angry.

    That's not really an achievement tbh 🤣 Back on the hoist again. Do you like the '70's dragster stance?

The rear muffler looks spectacular Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Bling bling wheel bolts (my standard bolts only did 6 turns, not the 6.5 turns required by cert standards).

    The variations in paint between years may explain why BMW are so closed about the colour.. I’d be keen to see them in comparison, mine are definitely older (2013).

    Thanks Tom, you're right $700+ for a couple of stone chips is ridiculous. That site makes mention of code 144 (Felgensilber Metallic) which seems to be a more generic BMW wheel silver, I'll try that in the meantime. 144 includes some purple and blue (albeit very minor quantities), interesting! Will post up what it looks like.

    Keep with all my other spares for the meantime mate. It’ll go back on the car in the future no doubt.

    Cheers man, super easy if you have the tools. Metal compound (I used Truckers Pride liquid heavy cut) with steel wool then machine cut with heavy compound and pad on a DA machine (I used Rupes Bigfoot, coarse pad and HC400 but others will get same result). It's not perfect, but pretty good for an hours' work. A refine polish will make it much better, but tbh I'm only doing this for my own benefit. If you're stuck for products, we stock most of this stuff at www.unitedcarcare.co.nz (shameless self plug).

    Anyone know the paint code for the OEM CSL wheels, by chance...? I've been matching by eye, pain in the ass mixing each batch slightly differently. Looks WAY off in the photo, but this is the closest actual match on the wheel I have done. Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr ^^ before sanding flat & polishing of course.

    Cats are in and rasp is gone. It's so damn quiet, can barely hear exhaust. But intake ... oh my. The intake. This is a good sounding motor. I also go these in today's courier, final piece of the OEM puzzle ..! Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr

    I think I’ve answered my own question, pretty sure this console is for the phone kit. Awww yeah, early 2000’s car phone come at me. Off to get the cats re-installed today. Exhaust will then be 100% stock, for the first time since new from the sounds of things. I’m actually really enjoying the changes, for the moment at least. Edit: actually it may not be a phone console. The plot thickens..
