got any bits you need to do on the m50 project that you need a hand with? will wrap up warm, and bring some messy clothes, will also be bringing the girly ( pho21girl ) as fitting a full stainless into a smart car could be a bit of a squeeze, and its too cold to be jacking the roof back, will get a cold head!
oh can you txt me your postcode again just so i know where im actually going.
will bring a couple o cans o fosters for good measure :)

There's always bits that need doing! I might tackle the wiring and hosing the engine up tonight. I've texted you the postcode now, as a size guide the exhaust fitted in my E30 saloon with no problems. Cheers

the missus is coming with me no in the smart car as cant afford the fuel in her polo as it drinks, i have bought a wolly hat though cos she gonna hav to hug the exhaust on the way home with it hanging out the roof. her decision lol. still gonna be leaving around 6, and according to google maps it takes 1 hour 55 mins to that post code. gonna be coming down A1 though and across the m25 so im hoping traffic won be a pain in the ass! told hannah to bring a book n warm clothes so if she complains will just shove her in the car n tell her to be silent whilst we create BMW goodness :). will call you on yer mobile if there n e changes in le plan!

is your e30 still for sale? i may have a buyer for you :)

Hmm just checked on google, I wouldn't do that if I was you. I'd be heading across to Royston on the A505 and then over to Haverhill, down to Sudbury (where I live, though the farm is 8 miles on).

If someone offered me the cash for the E30 then I will sell it, right now I won't mind either way! I'll get it out for a play.

F'all since you visited! I've found a nice hole for the ECU and "engineered" a hole for the wiring. Since then, nothing. It's frustrating me really, I only get a few hours Wednesday nights and one day at the weekend if I'm lucky. Tonight I can't and this weekend I'm helping a friend move, no progress in sight!

I have the calipers but not the discs funnily enough.

I'm expecting people to overtake me in the M50 stakes!

That's a good idea but the MAF and TB are not the same size so unless one end is tapered it will need a reducer ring on the TB. I'm still debating what to do with the inlet issue... we shall see!
