Yep he didn't actually list it again but I messaged him and made a decent offer and he was happy to sell, service history is perfect and the seller himself in the short time he had it took it to redish and had the diff oil, brake fluid, windscreen etc changed.

I did pay him slightly more than he paid for the car but I think I still got a good deal in the end especially with all the mods still on it.

Yep it really is a clean car and Ashley is a top bloke aswell, I was happy to pay that bit extra as it has the eventuri and brakes etc although I'm seriously considering putting the standard brakes on to sell the AP's on but we shall see.

Thanks mate it really is a lovely example, Ash did say he had a lot of interest and he himself was in two minds about selling the car. luckily I was in a position to buy right away and I'm glad I did.

I was lucky enough to pick this up yesterday after what seemed like ages trying to find a decent one.







It's a frozen silver edition and I absolutely love it, I was unsure about frozen paint to begin with but when I seen it in the flesh I had to have it and it's in good condition considering the car is 10 years old.

I will get a thread up soon as I have a few things planned to upgrade and tidy up.

Congrats! Beautiful car with some great mods also
Enjoy it :)

I was a bit bored today so I thought I'd polish the bonnet catch - hinges and some bolts/nuts around the coolant expansion tank and power steering reservoir

We all like some before and after pic's :D

Thank you Daren :)
I have a bench grinder with a wire brush wheel and used that. I then polished them by hand with some Autosol

I’m sad. Love this attention to detail. It’s what i would look for
I also admire Sam87 attention to detail and glad to hear I’m not the only saddo, I bought new OEM coolant expansion tank bolts and a new exhaust centre support just to smarten things up. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174797346648 (BMW Genuine 3x Hex Bolt M6 x 20 U2-8.8 07119903995)
I'll have to clean my bonnet catch next.

Maniac! :D
Just out of interest, did you grease or oil anything afterwards? It might not look as good but surely it would offer some protection? Maybe gun oil or something that will hang about for a while.

Thank you Steve :)

This is why I like this forum, there are same minded people like me and I feel normal again when I see I'm not the only one that goes a bit ott with the car :lolwsign:

:muttley:

No, I didn't do that because they wouldn't have looked as shiny afterwards..... If the shine starts to fade, I'll be doing the same thing again :lolwsign:
