    Hi marrow,

    To be honest, I’m very undecided still.

    I had a meeting with the original owner on Monday night, he was very impressed with the length we’ve gone to get the car back to this level, His since owned a white 6 series grand coupe diesel and a grey f10 m5 but says he misses the head turning yellow m3. It was his baby for many years, as was my E30 that I miss.

    I made a joke about him re buying the car and I think perhaps it got some cogs turning in both of our minds.

    But,

    Hearing these nice comments and others from those above makes me want to keep it even more, stuck between a rock and hard place it would seem aha!

    Thanks as always for the nice msgs.

    All the best
    James lambert

    Hi guys hope you are all having a lovely weekend what ever you up too.

    I managed to catch up with a friend on Friday, went for a ride out. Rarely get our cars together these days so I had to to take a few pictures.

    One thing we did notice though, well actually the misses pointed it out about a month ago aswell, the passenger door handle was really stiff to open, she would have to pull it twice to open, so when I used the 330ci as a comparison, it was silky smooth!

    I had to change that!

    Saturday morning out came the tools and using just a 4mm Allen key I could adjust both of the handle’s.

    The drivers side was perfect to be fair didn’t need any adjustment, it was still very tight. Needed half a turn on the passenger side, that soon had us back in good order.

    Easy job I should of done a month ago but because I only have a passenger very rarely, the door and boot only open when I’m cleaning it.

    More updates to come very soon.

    All the best
    Lambert

    The simple fixes are always the best. Just a wee hint, the wd40 will actually dry the catch out, a bit of 4 in 1 oil would be better to keep things moving.

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Yes your right, simple yet very satisfying fix.

    Slightly bigger update you may be pleased to see/hear.

    The M3’s been at the bmw body shop and I’ve had the whole roof painted again as the car had a coupe of chips appear recently rather annoyingly near the sunroof and that a slight colour difference where the shark fin was has been bugging me, although no one else could spot it lol!

    So pleased to have her back, can’t wait to seal and wax it at the weekend.

    Here’s a few snaps, I know you guys like those..

    Hi guys and girls, hope you’ve had a fantastic weekend whatever you’ve been up too.

    We had an amazing morning with our ever growing gang of bmws today.

    Youngbenny showed up in his SG beast on this occasion and it turned some heads that’s for sure, thanks for your support today bro!

    Here’s a few pictures taken from various people, hope they don’t mind me posting them...
