    Cutters Wrist Check and General Horology

    Picked up this recently which is my first foray into vintage watches - Enicar Sherpa Guide GMT. True never worn NOS condition from 1969, seal still on the case back and has never been opened. It still works but the wind is a bit crunchy as no doubt very dry after 52 years! 43mm which was...

    New M3 owner - Mod help

    Its subjective depending on what you are looking for. For me it definately makes driving the car more of an event - see here for a Std to M Perf comparison -

    New M3 owner - Mod help

    For carbon of all varieties plus all sorts of other tasty stuff, keep an eye on the 'For Sale' section of these forums. Always something interesting for sale in there. There is also a 'Wanted' section but I don't really look in there that much so don't know how successful the ads are. There is...

    Interesting F80 Comp on Pistonheads

    ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and all the other related cliches! It’s not my cup of tea and IMO has gone overboard with the colour coding plus a few inaccuracies like a GTS bonnet for £1500 so either they have forgotten how much it actually cost or it’s a replica (surely would have...

    Suspension Issue - Pinch Bolts?

    So I had my bolts replaced today. Followed the other general instructions, tighten to 60lbs whilst at normal ride height and I finally have silent suspension! Replacement bolts seems to be the way to go for the permanent fix. Big thanks to everybody who contributed to this thread. :bow2:

    Interesting F80 Comp on Pistonheads

    This caught my eye whilst browsing today: https://www.pistonheads.com/buy/listing/12066006 Shame whoever built it now can't enjoy it.

    Cutters Wrist Check and General Horology

    Tried this on the other day after seeing a few YouTube vids: Incredible detail for the price. A bit big for me at 43mm but I don't have an Omega or a Worldtimer in the collection so am sorely tempted. I also think it will hold its value quite well.

    Suspension Issue - Pinch Bolts?

    Hi Tom, I can't seem to locate the part number for the pinch bolt in the Cotswold sub forum. Had a look on Real OEM but not 100% sure. Is it: 5 Hex bolt with washer M10X80-U1-10.9 2 07119905418 7 Hexagon nut with collar M10-10 ZNS3 2 33326768884 Can you please confirm. Ta.

    Suspension Issue - Pinch Bolts?

    I'm in the same boat although mine only started clicking started after jacking the car up to fit spacers. Its been constant since and quite embarrassing! This was approx 2 months after fitting KW HAS by my trusted local indy who is good with BMW's - he has an E46 track car. After the clicking...

    Quick Q

    I don’t believe so. BM3 is on the engine ECU where coding is on other control units.

    BM3 What to expect?

    I’m an eternal tinkerer so I love all of the changes possible with BM3 plus I’m a 2016 so out of warranty so nothing to worry about there. Ive been on the forums for 2 years and follow the F80 chat closely and can’t remember a crank hub failure reported in that time. I’m of the opinion that the...

    Exhaust controller

    Yes. I have a really loud car - catless DP’s plus M Perf Exhaust so I like to be able to have manual control of the valves and I can then be quiet when I need to be. Also I only drive with the long travel throttle of Efficient but occasionally want the valves open when the conditions allow.

    Exhaust controller

    I've got the BMS Valve Controller (OBD II Can Module). It stays plugged into the OBD plug but I hid the rest in the dash and because its all black you don't notice it: Contols are via the BC button on the left hand stalk. I actually left mine in for its last dealer service. They just asked me...
