Been a while since I updated this, a long while!

Loads has happened since then, but mostly non-car related things. Work stuff, army stuff, house stuff, getting married stuff ;)

On to the m3; currrently sitting on the drive with no rear bumper. Had bought a superspring centre section and fitted it with the OEM backbox but it didn't sound much different so I removed it and sold it. That was about 3 months ago. I haven't gotten around to putting the OEM centre back on yet!

Here is how she looked in 2017, got wheels refurbed in shadow chrome in April, steering wheel refurbished by Royal, eibach springs to replace the teins, spacers all around 15mm front and 12mm rear, oil service, replaced prop donut and csb, replaced the fuel transfer pipe and only put about 3k miles on her between MOTs. Here are a selection of pics (Flickr):

Plans for the year are small as I will be deploying on ops at the end of the year so most of my time will be split between hanging out with my wife and training. I'd like to try and source an imola red interior and get carbon splitters front and back though, carbon and red will look awesome!

Nice one! I'll not be far from Kenya but for 6 months! Looking forward to it! Pretty sure the Rifles will be our force protection too.

I will get more pics at the weekend. I dont drive the car often so not sure how quickly it will wear but the quality is excellent and only cost £130.
