My E90 M performance spoiler finally arrived after a month. Got hit by import tax :( , meaning I'll have to hang the spoiler up on my wall as a souvenir for 20 years after it's off the car to get my moneys worth.

20% plus disbursement fee. I didn't factor that into the purchase lol.

I assume you paid VAT when you bought it? If so, ask for it back from the retailer.

Yeah I paid VAT but I had to use a forwarding agent to have it delivered to the UK.

Ah. So not an export order. That’s unfortunate.

Now 15 for sale on Autotrader but cheapest is £22k. Crazy that only a year ago that same car would have been circa £14k.

There's one up for £25k but with no details in the advert description. If 22k becomes the floor price and the cars shift then that's a good thing for us.

Yep welcome, and to the Jerez club as well. The car looks great, and some nice mods on the list. I'll be interested to see the before and after on the springs, mounts and stops.

Finally had the lowering springs fitted along with thinner spacers at the rear and wider at the front:

That's the 19's with stock size tyres

And now the 18 inch winter wheels with 235 40 fronts and 255 40 rears, back to wider spacers on the rear too:

Is there a big increase in comfort going to 18s?

I wouldn't say a big increase but it is noticeable

These winters definitely don't have the same traction levels on damp or dry roads as the summers. I'm running at 448bhp and it's spinning in third in the damp/wet.

Hi Guys
E92 335i single turbo owner here.

I am feeling out the E90 M3 market to see if anyone is selling or considering selling theirs at the moment?

I really want a practical fun car to take my boy out in.

Just looking for a nice clean example.

Anything going?

Many thanks
