That is absolutely epic. Hats off to you and the previous owner, what a beast.

Thanks all.

New brake setup fitted recently and it’s a night and day difference from standard. Anyone who drives enthusiastically really should consider a upgrade over standard.


Performance Friction 2-piece Rotors
RSL29 Pagid Pads

Despite how good these have proven to be, I am still on the brink of upgrading again to a BBK front and back but at the price of a cheap track car, it's tough to take the plunge.

Well, about time I updated the thread. December to March the car is untaxed as I don't like getting it covered in salt. I miss driving her though so in the time I have managed plan, acquire and fit a few upgrades...

Lets start with the front brakes.













I am currently bedding them in, but so far I am impressed. They will come into their own once I caress the rears on and fit some Endless pads.

Next up we have a full Akrapovic Evo Titanium exhaust system fitted thanks to Mr Telsy above.

A true gentleman who supplied an exhaust exactly as described and with no hassle whatsoever.

Still gutted I didn't see his Performance Seats soon enough to nab them

Yup, she's just like a normal e92 M3, but with fast forward pressed


New seats are in, and I am very happy with them.

Did you run spacers with the BBS CH R? I bought a set at the weekend and the fronts dont sit as flush as yours did.
