Undergone extensive refurbishment in the last 3 months after discovering the original brake line had split whilst in the garage over the winter. I made the decision to overhaul the underneath of the vehicle, replacing with BMW parts:
- Brake lines
- 4 x shock absorbers
- Track/tie rod ends
- All bushes
- Offside driveshaft
- 4 x brake assembly covers
- Brake pads
- Front aluminium undertray
- Large majority of underside bolts, gaskets, clips and fastenings.
Please see photos of the recent part bills for full list of what was replaced, expenditure on parts was in the region of Β£3,500.
Once the underneath was disassembled all moving parts that were staying were aesthetically reconditioned, undergoing blasting and respraying in black/silver where appropriate.
Underseal was removed from the car and the rear subframe was inspected - no cracking was found. The car was resealed prior to reassembly.
Brake fluid was renewed during this time.
Only the rear camber arms have been replaced with an aftermarket alternative. I used Powerflex thread-lock adjustable rear arms to give better adjustability and quality.
Following reassembly, I had the geometry done with the correct weightings/settings. Car is running just over a degree of negative camber on the front and just under two degrees of negative on the rear. Car travels true and straight and handles very nicely.
Full enhancement detail and ceramic coating conducted last summer, always kept in a heated garage in my ownership and washed/waxed post use. Paint is in great condition with no swirls.
Equipped with 4 x Michelin PS4 with around 1000 miles of use.
