    Congrats! It might be the photographs or my phone but that doesn’t look like Dakar to me. Dakar is paler. I wonder if that’s had a re-spray? :think: either way I think I’ve spent too long on here now as I like it and have always hated Dakar.

    I've been following the Instagram updates from @pmgautocare and i can barely contain myself!!!

    He's just finished the heavy cutting stage and today will be getting on to the refinement stage. Tomorrow should be full ceramic coating stage.

    We are also repainting the hubs etc. to really freshen everything up.

    I'll take it next week to get the crappy tints taken off, and get them properly done by Pentagon.

    M5 gear knob arrived yesterday, and Josh from RoyalSteeringWheels is on a 2 week turnaround but I have my wheel ordered with him too.

    Also ordered the full interior and exterior LED light upgrade from forum sponsor Perfekt Lighting comprising of interior coupe kit, sidelights, numberplate lights, front figs, front indicators, side indicators, reverse and matching D2S so when they arrive that'll be a nice day to fit everything!

    Final thing is an outdoor carcoon - I believe its a size 4 I'm after, but does anyone use a Carcoon, to confirm the size is correct?

    Thanks guys,

    Ross

    To be honest I was convinced this will end up as another scam... but looks like you've won the jackpot, congrats !
    Are you playing the lottery as well :D ?

    No, def not a scam.

    more spending tonight - a guy on my local forum - RMS motoring - had written off his E46 that had just had a bit of money spent on it, namely, the audio.

    I got the following from him:


    “Rainbow SL 5.25 components only bought in Feb for £220..
    E46 speaker adaptor plates
    Custom E46 coupe sub enclosure
    12 “Kenwood slimline subwoofer
    Kenwood 4 channel amplifier

    http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/rainbow-sl-c5-2-5-25-2-way-component-speaker-set

    https://rmsmotoring.com/forum/threads/e46-coupe-custom-12”-sub-box.213069/

    It’s really decent kit. So much so I tried to buy another good E46 to put it all back in, kicked many tyres and gave up.“

    Now just need the Kenwood DMX and fitting kit and that’s another thing checked off the list!

    Think you done well for £22.50. Some people have all the luck !!

    The colour worries me, looks Dakar, Phoenix, Speed Yellow and I don't know, I have had a few, and this is such a great story and well done, we are all envious, well I am !!

    If you have Dakar, you have a rather special limited number car !
