    328ti Rally

    Fences & Hedges -brilliant!! So apt for rallying. plus I really love that B&H livery from the M3s. Good luck with the build I hope it goes smoothly.

    E30 M3 valve shims wanted

    As I thought, I haven't got any that thick. 3.90 is the fattest I've got sorry.

    728i (M30) with 4-speed manual

    Doesn't look to be anything special, or a very desirable spec. A great big hole in the sill suggests there will be other issues in the body. The work required would seem to be much greater than the final reward.

    Not sure if I've got any that thick, I will have a look through what I have got spare and let you know. IIRC you had to order a whole "kit" the last time I looked at buying some specific sizes, so I ended up swapping some with a dealership.

    E30 Race Car - Jim Richard's JPS M3 Tribute.

    The steel outer halves of the inner guards have now turned up, just in time for my week off next week - so will be back to cutting and grinding in anger. Fingers crossed I should make some good progress with these if I get a good solid run at it!

    WTB: e30 front ARB 20mm in good nick

    Not sure if my measurements are 100% as the battery was flat in my vernier so I had to measure the gap with a tape measure! Also not 100% sure what all the thickness variations are for an E30 ARB. One I have is probably an 18.5mm, I also have an E30 M3 one which seemed to come out about 19 - 19.5mm and the one on the race car seems to be a 20mm.. If you pm me what any of them would be worth to you, we can discuss. i'll try and find a battery and get proper measurements.

    More e46 m3 goodness

    If Ray / HellBM team put the second engine in then there's nothing to be worried about there, which I believe they did but would have to double check with them to be 100%. Probably almost a positive selling point, because things would have been done properly and any issues found whilst in there would have been sorted - plus all the other work that was done when it was converted over to the V8.

    M340i xDrive

    Yes, this is the latest iteration of the B58 "ober" version, should go alright with all those horses going through all four wheels.

    M340i xDrive

    +++ New BMW M340i xDrive unveiled at Los Angeles Auto Show +++ 3 Series receives most powerful engine yet +++ Market launch in US in April 2019 +++ Never before has the BMW 3 Series been so dynamic! BMW M GmbH is unveiling the new BMW M340i xDrive. Debuting at the Los Angeles Auto Show from 30 November to 9 December, the newcomer is due for market launch in spring 2019. But already it promises abundant sportiness, thanks primarily to the all-new 3.0-litre straight six-cylinder petrol engine. With output of 275 kW/374 hp, performance is up a full 35 kW/48 hp. The BMW M340i accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds, half a second faster than its predecessor. The Adaptive M Suspension with variable sport steering is the perfect complement to the performance of the new engine and combines with the latest-generation 8-speed Steptronic Sports transmission. The intelligent all-wheel drive system, BMW xDrive, distributes the power fully variably between the front and rear axles. The BMW M 340i also comes with the M Sport differential as standard, ensuring absolute driving stability, M Sport brakes offering superior deceleration, and 18-inch M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres. The BMW M340i xDrive's superior performance is reflected in its design. The front apron, side sills and rear spoiler offer optimised aerodynamics and cooling-air supplies. Special visual elements include the mesh-design BMW kidney grille and trapezoid tailpipe surrounds. Inside, sports seats with Sensatec and Alcantara upholstery as well as the anthracite-coloured BMW Individual headliner, BMW M leather steering wheel with shift paddles, and interior trim strips in Aluminium Tetragon create a fitting sporty ambience. The new BMW M 340i is due for market launch in Europe in July 2019. In the US it will be available earlier, in April.

    i've got a few in the cupboard, I will have a measure up of what sizes they are. Are you only interested in the 20mm?

    Unusual F80

    As per my above post, this ISN'T Nardo Grey, yes it's similar, but not the same shade of grey as this one. Two of the cars in this series are 'Nardo Grey' but this one is Medio Grigio. 50 different shades of grey in the BMW colour pallette.

    Unusual F80

    Very similar, the CS colour is "Lime Rock Grey" which is a little lighter than this one - Medio Grigio, which I think means "middle grey" in Italian? There are also a couple of these limited Indivudual Edition M3s in Nardo Grey which is also nice. I can see that it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, and yes it does look like they only put the primer on and forgot the top coat (do they still even use primer now..??) over it, but they do stand out a bit more than some of the more common colours. My choice would be one of the two of these that are in the E36 M3 metallic Daytona Violet.

    Official M3 Touring?

    Would certainly be an awesome car... fast and practical! Given the sales success of the Audi RS4 and RS6 as wagons you would have thought that there would be a justification to try and get some of that market share.

    Another good AutoCar rumour!
