" Park brake and gasoline" sounds like a blues band

I go to watch them...

Quick update: As well as the things being addressed, it turns out I have a knackered hand brake cable, so another little job being finished today, fingers crossed she's back for the weekend, the bill will be climbing...

On the plus side, the clutch cable has been swapped for a braided one, as well as some of the brake lines, and the Diff Floor, mounts and Bushes have passed a health check.

Good one

Car collected form my Indy.

£637.09 Later.

New front engine mount replaced, Hand brake adjusted, new thermostat, temp (gauge now runs in the centre £46.40 plus vat and the fitting), new hand brake cable fitted, Tracking adjusted 1.5 degrees of toe removed (man that makes a difference) diff oil top up, gearbox oil flush.

The bits have all arrived to be fitted, so thats the next task. Shame its a bit dark, and bad weather planned for tomorrow.

Default Could not wait to start messing...

So maybe I decided to go out in the dark...



Engine mount failure...

Replaced the Centre caps, they are not as snug as the plastic edge ones they replaced but looks better generally. The flash makes them look dirty, will take pics in the light if it's not lashing down tomorrow...



(Holes made by me for ease of removal)

The boot Badge was replaced.


as was the M3 Badge, from worn E46 Version. to E36, annoyingly there is a mark on the blue piece on the new badge, but I need to stop being so anal.


I'm not sure how many times they polished the car to destroy the badge!!!


Better now the right version and not worn out.


A small detail, but replaced some spring clips on the grille mesh.



And fitted my cup holder. came with some odd bung that I couldn't work out where to use it, so I didn't! Not the prettiest of additions, but it does the job.


So the next task is to address the rocking seat and see if I can undo the bolts to move the bumper about.

Hello froma fellow imola owner

Your journal is great and you're addressing some of the common problems that I had to when I got mine. Keep it up!

Default Saturdays work.

So the whole of Saturday, after getting the car back to fix ONE heater bulb.

Job started simple enough. Removed the cd player, and clocks, though the surround on the clock was SOOOO tight took 20 minutes of straining and swearing to get it out, the clock must have swelled.


Just to replace one of these.

Then during the job, one of these blew.

So had to go to the motor factors for one, then another blub and socket blew, but had a spare in a box from my old M3 from 10 years ago, glad that I'm a hoarder.
The one of these blew...

But again I had a spare, I guess changing the bulbs was causing the power to change across the old bulbs and then they popped.

Ended up chaning all the bulbs...
