    I have not been on here for a few years due to health issues. My M3 Evo has been neglected so today it’s finally going into redish Motorsport for a full under body inspection. This was cancelled due to Covid 19 was originally booked for April. Must say I’m slightly nervous of what they might find

    I know the floor is damaged where a well known tyre company incorrectly lifted the car however could prove it was them as it was picked up two months later at the MOT. I had the car for 14 years so I think I would have known if it was previous damage!:(

    Many thanks to all at Redish Motorsport (Bristol) for the survey carried out on my M3 Evo. These guy’s have to be one of the best independent Bm Garage in the country.

    full underbody survey/report an video. This highlighted a lot of issues with bushes, ball joints etc not picked up on last years MOT. Also a lot of corrosion and sill damage. Will cost a lot to rectify so may have to think of selling.
    Many thanks to James Redish and James P for their knowledge and Honesty.:)

    the "problem" with undercar resto[particularly while paying someone else to carry it out] is that there are loads of bits whilst ultimately servicable for some time need replaced to match the rest,and bmw parts/fastners etc aint cheap
    plus all the labour/coating etc-adds up to a price which may be unpalatable for most

    if you are doing it yourself its a cheaper proposition,particularly if you can weld and have access to a compressor etc

    the end result of the redish jobs looks fantastic though,must be said

    The OP has to remember reddish would have quoted for every single nut and bolt new, reality is you can re-use alot of the items. If I was OP i would have the major items done and carry on enjoying the car.

    Completely stripped my BK92 out underneath a year or so ago....... very lightly/sympathetically restored floor to factory fresh standard. Was careful to retain originality. Scrubbed the whole underside with a nail brush and soapy hot water! sand blasted most bolts and fixings/brackets. Had them re-plated whilst carrier was blasted and powder coated along with anything else that could safely be done. Stripped the diff and painted in epoxy, blasted the back cover and clear coated it. New rear gasket and seals. New carrier bushes, trail arm bushes, replaced all shocks for OE along with top mounts and roll bar bushes. New brake lines coated in stone chip to make them look OE. Clear waxed it all in to Help safeguard my efforts.
    It’s getting on for as good as those I remember conducting a PDI on at dealer, back in the day!

    Hate to think what it would have cost had I paid a third party to do it!? Certainly would not have been viable financially.
    As said above; if you have the time and access to the right equipment it’s a relatively easy proposition as a DIY job
