Big bore throttle body.


You want a new or used handbrake? Have new ones for between 90 and 120 and fitting kit can be supplied.

Ok so time for a bit of an update...

So got the car pretty much all stripped and she was sitting up fairly high after it and felt alot quicker



Moved it down to its new home for a few weeks so we can get to work on it in a bit of comfort





Been gathering up a few bits and pieces over the last few weeks;

some wheels





some cheap seats



cheap second hand coilvers - jamex, hope they last a while



So we have the diff out and welded, currently removing the rear subframe to weld in the reinforcement plates, rear subframe is in some mess with rust, hard job getting bolts and nuts removed but we'll get there

This came today...fake ebay job but it'll do me



So i have lots of interior bits if any one is looking for something for sale on ebay...

http://www.ebay.ie/sch/087mate123/m....&_trksid=p3686

Have few other bits that are not up yet, M3 steering wheel, spare wheel cover, few other bits of trim

I've sold the alloys from the first few pics so that helped with funds a bit.

So remaining work to do when I get a chance is;

Complete removal of subframe
Weld in reinforcement plates, install subframe (may replace) & diff
Install coilovers, seats & braces
Buy and fit hydro
Decat exhaust

Get it out and take it from there

Future...
M50 Manifold and BBTB
Electric fan
CAI
and whatever else needs to be done

Default Bored Saturday Night Update....

So I've finally got all the ripping done and I can start putting things back together the next few weeks

Steering wheel fitted





Picked up few more bits

Hydro



Subframe reinforcement plates



TRS Tow straps



New K&N Filter and bits to fit it



And it fitted



Myself and the misses fitted the hydro in position thursday night, hydro is bolted to angle, angle is bolted through the tunnel and the other plate is on the inside of the tunnel to spread the pressure, all lock nuts used, feels very sturdy so we'll see how it works out.

The plates



And the hydro in place






Strut braces are no longer green....




Now for some nasty pics.....rust, rust and more rust

subframe mounting points




Subframe itself
before


After sand blasting and priming



Also got the exhaust silencers and cats removed and straight pipes made up, fitted them tonight and what a noise, ha ha, loved it, it'll not be as bad when the muffler is back on



So tomorrow morning I'll be fitting the seats hopefully, monday I'm getting the steering knuckles cut back and I need to get a section of the subframe plated, get the reinforcement plates welded and get the rear back together again.

Find a place to let rip and get a bit of practice before I hit the track

Should have kept that 328 exhaust intact...
They are worth good enough money for 323i owners.


Get off all that sound-proofing inside the car too
