Where did you get hold of your wing badges from?

Did the disa valve this morning. Whilst it seemed to be ok the O ring was missing, so at least it was worth checking for that.

Next up (but not today) is the Vanos. Black Friday deal got me £40 off

Inspection 2 at RBM Hampshire yesterday. What a nice guy, great service and a very reasonable price

Had the CDV deleted and it really does make a difference. God only knows why BMW kept them in UK spec cars.

Forgot to order the oil cooler gasket, so did that today. Looked at when I last did an oil change and due to lockdown and sorning the car, meant it only did 1k miles since the service, so not going to bother changing it , until just before the NC500 , take 2 , in June .
Ordered one of those Sealey under bonnet inspection bar light that clamps to the bonnet and gives better light for doing stuff in this darkness we live in this time of year. 13hr battery. Lets hope I dont need all of it for the gaskets I am changing :D

107s off and 135s with all seasons on; it’s been regularly below zero here all week and today was the first decent day to do the swap.

New rims, but unsure if I like them or not. I feel I see so many pictures of z4 with Csl that it is that or nothing. Let me know what you guys think.

Swapped over to winter wheels today. Weren’t what I was looking for exactly but I’ve decided I quite like them. :driving:

Finally fitted my new rear shocks (Bilstein B4s) and new rear springs (Suplex M-Sport). Pretty straightforward job minus having to dismantle half the boot carpet and trim... :headbang:

Arrived today is the Sealey light bar that latches to the bonnet to give light to the full engine bay. Got it for £50 , so a bargain. This is with all the garage lights off as an idea on how well it lights up :thumbsup:
