My E92 335i

My E92 335i
Hi guys.

New to the forum.
Mostly drove cars from the VAG stable, had one worked 325i E30 many years ago.

I bought Gideon's 335i last week, awesome drive, fuel consumption sucks, or it is just my right foot Crazylaugh

Most of you know the car already, ill keep this page updated with some new mods.

Last night gave the interior a good cleaning incl leather treatment.

Also peeled off that horrible soft touch crap from the steering wheel, it will get carbon skinned soon.

I love that car. You got it for a steal!

PMs don’t work, so if I don’t reply I’m not being rude.

Beautiful machine! It must be quite a pleasant surprise driving a potent BMW as this after moving over from a VAG machine! =)

Congrats Shaun, if you put half the amount of effort into this E92 that you did into your previous cars.., it will still be a stunner.

Thank you sir.

The car is booked for Downpipes on the 20th at TMSS.
After that new wheels and some lowering.

On Thursday the car started misfiring, luckily it was not injector as I feared.

I collected new sparkplugs from Gideon (Previous Owner) and his diagnostics cable (thanks a million bud). Purchased the correct socket (14mm 12point narrow wall) from the toolshop.
[Image: img_4070_7054350762.jpg]

Purchased a new Coilpack from Goldwagen for just in case, luckily it was coilpack on cylinder no 2.
[Image: img_4030_3256167802.jpg]

Was lot easier than I thought, 30mins and all the plugs was changed and everything back together.
[Image: img_4049_9363837512.jpg]

The plugs on cyl 1 & 2 were in a sad state, good thing I changed them.

Fault codes were cleared and she is pulling like a demon as before.
