Bonnet release handle guaranteed to increase BHP by at least 20. :wink:
If you add blue/blue/red M tape to the handle that will add another 5BHP ;)

Or you may have got this tapes on upside down.
Has your speed in reverse increased?

Storm still advertise the plain item as well as one with etched Storm Logo and shift pattern.I believe that the ///M version is discontinued.

The one I bought is second user.

my little green mistress was getting a bit notchy changing gear 1st to 2nd (common I know) then last Tuesday trying to change up or down started to feel like Russian roulette, went to my local independent Bmw Autotech performance http://www.autotechperformance.co.uk/ and the noise that was coming from under the bonnet as I dipped my clutch bought a great deal of interest to all there.
so the OMG moment was a new DMF & clutch £600 + vat :shock:

I have an element of 'M-styling' on my car, If that's a good enough reason for the manufacturers to adorn a 320 with the M badge, then its certainly a good enough reason for me..

The clue is in the title,"what did you buy" not "what did you do" so unless you bought some cleaning stuff, I guess no,it doesn't count.When you receive your pay packet, you need to MOT your car and revisit the topic.Best of luck with that! Ours just passed with no work,16 years old now, but some advisories so we need to start saving.

Well, I bought some 'tyre dressing'. I also use it on all the black bits of the car, especially in the engine bay.
Mind you, I did of course catch the 'clue in the title', I was trying to inject a little humour on a Bank Holiday weekend.

Splash guards from in front of the rear wheels. Being a cheapskate I repaired ours with some black plant pot. As they are thermoplastic I cut them to size put in a pan of boiling water bent to shape and allowed to cool and the fixed to the remains of the original.

Be careful next time it goes in the garage as they are just where the mechanic puts the lit pads for the vehicle lift.

Correct Brian, they are a little flimsier than I would like but t here is nothing left of my old ones. They are classed as air ducts when ordering for some reason. I have seen some aftermarket aluminium ones somewhere but cannot remember where :head: must be getting old.

Powerflex bushes for the front Control arms and front drop links.
The control arm bushes were worn I guess anyway but the powerflex were much easier to install and have improved the steering totally and less crashy than the worn OE ones.
Might have also cured my DSC faults as well.

There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40.
If it moves (and it shouldn’t): Duct tape. If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.
