Does anyone know a good place in west London that can do the alignment for me?

Ah, I work in High Wycombe! Thank you, I'll look them up :)



I don't mind traveling up to 50 miles for the right place :)
As per Steve, Adams & Page are a good business and would recommend them. If that doesn’t work out, drop me a DM and I’ll pass on some other details.

RD Automotive comes to mind :)

Sam
If you go to RD Automotive you could also get it corner weighted at the same time

Thanks guys! I would like to take it someplace that can get it corner weighted so I might end up taking it to RD Automotive.
I'll also speak with Adams & Page and see if they also offer the same thing

The one thing I miss from my other car on the E92 M3 is the reversing camera. I'm also not fond of aftermarket stuff so when I found out it was possible to install it in a fully removable way with 90% OEM components and a bit of coding, I wanted it :)

Took some time to pick up the components, but works perfect and my BMW Main dealer thought it was factory fitted!

That's very cool!
What parts are needed to get a camera to work on an e92?

I followed this DIY on M3Post mostly, @ccfj1 gave me some help with the 'Y' Splitter cable.
The most difficult part to get is the PDC module for an E84, the OEM wiring loom came from Cotswold BMW.
All in it cost just under £500, but I did not attempt to save money on ebay by offering less etc as I'm a bit impatient and I already had the cable for coding and ISTA/NCS/INPA setup.

I had to buy the step drill bit, cable crimpers to make the Y Splitter, so it's possible to save money there, and I bought 2 ebay handles when I only needed one, but had to install it differently to the DIY.

Looks beautiful as always Sam, but it’s a bit too low for my liking personally. I’d raise it about 10mm front and back and see how it looks, but it’s not my car and if you want a lowered stance then it’s bang on mate :)
I feel the same. It’s 10-12mm too low all round for me.

I personally love the standard rear comp ride height, having the front to match that would be my version of ‘perfect’.

However I appreciate we all seek different things and I love the car nonetheless!

Enjoy mate, I’m happy you’re pleased :thumbsup:

Hello all, just recently purchased my E92 M3 Comp in Frozen Grey. I'm looking to get peoples opinions on the way the car sits. Personally for me, the car is not perfect for me, YET. I'm hoping to change the wheels back to silver, either sell the ones on it and buy directly from BMW, or just respray them. Unsure how I feel about the carbon diffuser, rear spats and side skirts etc. For me, I love the look of a natural E92 with no side skirts etc, I'm planning on also getting the front carbon spats, if someone is selling a set i'd be happy to purchase them. Also not sure about the height it's sitting at, it's currently on H&R springs, and was thinking about raising the rear, is it too low? What would your opinions be on that?

Overall, very happy with the car and absolutely love how it feels on the road. Such raw power. I know now why people have such a love for these car. I'm also looking to make a small journal about the car and what i'll be changing etc to keep people updated, so keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks. I'll leave it at that and as I said, i'd be very happy to hear peoples opinions on the carbon diffuser and skirts etc.

Not a huge fan of carbon or black wheels tbh but I think on your car it looks great,

If you thinking about buying new oem wheels then your looking at 2k for a set, might be better having yours reconditioned,

Cheers

I liked them for the first day, but then I started to look at frozen grey/standard grey and I feel the silver wheels definitely suit it better.

If I sold the current set, and put the money towards a fresh new set. Still undecided as I'm unsure how accurate they would be to get the proper OEM colour.

Did you have much difficulty getting the handle to fit?
I have fitted the same handle (not yet fitted the other bits to get it all working) but it was such a tight fit in the aperture that it is not really seated properly.
I have bought a second example to experiment with - maybe some filing of the plastic securing lugs will make it a bit easier.
Are your guide lines dynamic - do they move with the steering angle?
