    The M3... Empty The M3...

    Post by Geeman on Mon Jul 26, 2010 7:19 am

    Okay... here's a sneaky spy shot of the new car.

    It's a '96 M3 Evo saloon - silver, black leather, standard rims and ride height (soon to change when the Jetta sells!).

    It's been converted from a 6-speed to a 5-speed in its' lifetime (6spd boxes are notoriously fragile)... it's got FSH, every single MOT from new and two full folders of receipts and BMW service data sheets. And, the body work, apart from one small scuff, is in amazing condition for its' age. I'm well chuffed with it.

    It has a few niggles that I need to sort out... but nothing major.

    So... here it is. The M3... Icon_cool When you see it in the flesh and have a run in it, you'll understand why I got it. I like to think it looks quite subtle and doesn't scream "Race me!" or "Steal me!" - until I drop it on the Style 5's...!

    Yep... Project Silver No.4! Laughing (new pic above)

    Dean... when it picks its' skirts up about 4k, it sounds fairly tasty. Can't do that too much as you can actually see the fuel gauge moving!

    Simon... you'll like it mate. Give us a bell and pop round anytime fella.

    Jez... it is REALLY clean. There are a couple of bits that need paint (no rust), but nothing too serious and I can live with it for now.

    Thanks for the positive comments. It makes me feel a bit better for having got rid of the A4. Still think I've made a mini-mistake with that.

    You think Paul will let me put it on our stand at Festival?

    Picking up rims tomorrow... not that I have a problem! Rolling Eyes

    Yeah... kinda got the silver bug at the moment for some reason. Jetta/Mk3/A4/M3/TT - all silver!

    Running it to Birmingham tomorrow, having its' air-con re-gassed on Thursday... and then it's up on the ramps on Friday for a few annoying creaks, rattles and groans from underneath. Hopefully they'll only be minor things. Fingers crossed.

    Then BMW on Saturday to order a few small things.

    I'd really like to get it lowered and on the rims for Festival, but we'll have to see where the priorities are. I really need to move the Jetta/Borbets/leather to fund things for it!

    Looks lovely Gee and really clean. Definitely nice and understated. Did you pick the rims up and have you fitted them? Looking forward to seeing this. I'm full of BMW love.

    Rims are in the dining room now! I just need to rebuild them, but got a few jobs on Rach's TT to do this weekend before she falls out of love with it... so that's a priority!

    BBS's rebuilding and tyres put on, S-line springs putting on, new spacers, rear trailing arm replaced (have one ready), service and a bloody good polish!

    I'm going to be busy this weekend!

    Looks great dropped Gee, it's a subtle difference but the stance is spot on now. Can you tell a difference when you drive it?
