    Picked this up a while ago and been getting it up to standard.

    Must say I much prefer the DCT to the manual in these.

    So far it’s been

    Clean and cleaned and cleaned.
    Oil Service (Castrol Supercar 10w60) Mahle filter and new BMW sump plugs.
    Mahle air filter.
    Mahle Thermostat.
    Mahle Cabin Microfilters.
    Coolant change with BMW Coolant.
    New genuine bmw front under covers x 3
    New genuine bmw mats.
    New genuine bmw rear bmw emblem.
    New 19” Strom M359 Wheels from CM Wheels with the correct offset (same as genuine)
    GTS gearbox software.

    Things to do -

    Rear diff oil service
    DCT Oil Service
    Spark plugs
    Exhaust mod (Maybe)
    Springs and spacers (Maybe)
    GTS V1 front splitter (Watch this space)

    Really enjoying the E92, Rod bearings have been replaced with ACL bearings and BMW Bolts, Throttle actuators are genuine BMW replaced in 2012 (Bank 1) and 2013 (Bank 2) Suspension is standard for now although I do have Eibach springs and shaved mounts along with e36 M3 bump stops waiting to go in but I really like how the car drives for now. It also came with a Genuine BMW high kick rear spoiler :)

    Sounds like you got a good thing going with this motor! Good to see when people get the sensible maintenance bits out the way first! Exhaust mod is an absolute must by the way!
    I'm looking to get some Eibachs soon, be interested to hear what you think of them :)

    My last e92 M3 had AC Schnitzer springs which are made by eibach but apparently have a different spring rate so will be interesting to see how the eibachs feel compared to the AC Schnitzer springs.
