    These days, 5 grand buys an e70 X5 3.0SD ...

    Another of my "excellent" eBay purchases. Being that we are rapidly outgrowing our 1 bed flat (babies need lots of stuff it would seem), i thought that instead of renting some storage at god nows how much per week, id buy an X5. If bought correctly, the monthly tax/insurance/depreciation would...

    e91 335i. The Unicorn.

    I wasnt going to post this anywhere (as im sure many people already think im boring/mad), but i thought there might be a few people that would be interested (y) Car wise, its pretty rare to begin with, so a Space grey '58 plate LCI, 335i touring auto with the N54 engine. Options wise its got...

    e70 X5 35d SE - £8,000

    Not mine, but i bought it for a friend (the same one who is selling the 335d listed in the other thread), mechanically its very good, lots of recent work done. I had intended to buy this back off him in 6 months time (hence why i bought it in the first place), but he's decided it uses too much...

    e90 335d Sport Touring - £6,700

    Not mine, but i helped buy it for a friend, mechanically its very good, lots of recent work done: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201910063027641 BTW. I told him to get rid of those god awful wheels, but he insisted on getting them refurbed black instead :ROFLMAO:

    M135i - Attempt Number 2

    TLDR: I bought a new car. So the Porsche has gone and im left with an e90 335i and an e91 335d. Sarah, after nearly 12 years, still has the TT. I am on car no. 38. Parking where i live is about to become permit only and im not allowed one (we have a carpark), so after running (at least) 2 cars...

    From a broken e91 325i to a Moon Mileage 335d ...

    Thought i might as well detail this cars rebuild on here - i certainly put all the other cars, so makes sense! Excuse me if its a bit of an info dump from a variety of different threads, but it saves me having to re-type everything (y)...

    Buy an e90 335i they said, it'll be fun they said ...

    Oh Really :ROFLMAO: Untitled by Sir_Dave, on Flickr So, going back a couple of weeks ... i've been looking for a le mans blue e90 335i with a manual box since about September, purely on the basis that i could buy it, swop the plates over & Sarah would never notice :unsure::whistle...

    These days, 3 grand buys an e90 330i ...

    eBay. The blight of any car enthusiast. I wasn't looking to buy anything, but you know when you just cant help yourself ... 😂 Personally, i think it was the Xenon headlights that did it, the cheaper ones never have them & they're just an expensive pain to retrofit! Spec of the car...

    Sensible Car. e92 330d.

    So with Brexit/Article 50/General economic slowdown appearing to halve my income over the past 6 months, it was time to stockpile some rainy day cash & pay off some loans ... so the idea was to sell the RS3 and buy a 5dr Golf Gti instead. Unfortunately, trying to find a 5dr mk6 DSG Gti with...

    1*2 Quaife Diff - Worth it?

    In effect, i'm buying a refurbed box from Northloopcup, but the option is there to have the Quaife fitted whilst its being done ... Now, assuming the R53 is dead and being broken up (ill know after the weekend), this will be sued on track instead, so i'm partly tempted as it made a massive...

    The Mini is dead, long live the half-dead Clio 182 instead.

    So the Mini is mostly dead: http://www.cliosport.net/threads/another-mcs-the-track-day-toy.755737/page-8 I'll be pulling the head off it this weekend, hopefully to find some minor issue that can fixed by simply putting on a new head, BUT if its piston/bottom end related, it'll be getting broken...

    Anyone recognise - CE54 FXX

    May have just bought this off a friend. BG182 with cup packs, seems to have ktec exhaust, pms top mounts, vmaxx front coilovers, gaz gold rears, big CLIOSPORT sticker in the rear window. 3th/4th are crunching, but "apparently" the cambelt & dephaser was done in December... Anyone know...

    Audi RS3

    Firstly, this wasn't an intentional purchase, i was perfectly happy with my green Mini and obviously Audi's are for people that like to understeer everywhere, xenons blazing. Especially the faux by faux ones with auto boxes. The Golf Gti/R however, had my interest, so i was looking at them...

    981 Boxster S. My first Porsche.

    So last weekend, Sarah & I bought our first car together :up: Its something i've wanted for as long as i can remember & she has always (jokingly) said that she'd "rather have a Porsche than a massive UK wedding". Best fiance ever?! With that in mind, on Sat 17th, we visited a couple of garages...

    Mini R56 JCW

    So, my Trackshed R53 (http://www.cliosport.net/threads/another-mcs-the-track-day-toy.755737/) is currently smoking like a chimney & needing the valve stem's doing, so last month i bought a Lohen BVH. However, by the time id worked out that i also needed a Janspeed manifold, Tomcat, Catcam &...

    M3. V8. Saloon.

    So following on from this: http://www.cliosport.net/threads/e46-m3-individual-version-2.782097/ A few good months of hard saving meant that i could finally buy want i really wanted back in September 2015!! Well actually, i originally wanted a coupe, but was drawn into the rarity of the saloon...

    BMW e30 vs e36 vs e46 vs e92 vs e80 M3 review

    Good video, great (but not surprising) outcome.

    e46 M3 Individual. Version 2.

    So then, this wont be a massively long thread full of modifications & faffing, it'll just be a place to put a load of (cr4p) pictures now & again. I went out looking for an e92 M3 to replace the M135i and ended up buying this instead, half the price spent meant more money for other things. Its...

    Melted spark plug!! Causes?

    So trackday at Donington yesterday, did about 30 mins epic running, then misfire, P302 (should be cyl2) on Scanguage. Pulled everything apart, fitted new leads/coilpack off a friends Cooper S, same problem, pulled pugs out to be greeted by the following: Cylinders 1>2>3>4 left to right...

    Another MCS. The track day toy.

    This project was actually started in March 2008 (by Sarah's brother), but as he moved to Dubai recently, i thought id better take it off his hands :slap: So off i went on Sunday to Cardiff on the Megabus. It cost £10.50 from London Victoria, but smelled very much of wee, so next time ill get the...

    LeXusPourLeMans

    So with this years trip almost upon us, FailSport's older members decided that it was time for some waft, preferably V8 powered. The Youfs did the 1*2 last year, so for 2014 we thought something more gentile would be in order, with the option to do doughnuts if required naturally. After much...

    Lovely Mini GP for sale ...

    I have no space to keep it at the moment, so it has to find a new owner. http://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/mini/cooper-s-works/mini-mini-cooper-s-jcw-gp-------------2006/2193325?isexperiment=true Don't really want to take a part-ex, but will take a sheddy clio to break if it...

    M135i - Estoril Blue Loveliness

    So yesterday was the day, the day I got my first brand new car. Whoop whoop!!! Jumped on the train at Walton, got to Basingstoke, changed for Reading, then onto Bristol Parkway (booked as one ticket it would have been £62, but as three separate ones, £28 – WTF?!), then a quick taxi ride (in an...

    Restoring/Protecting Black Plastic Trim

    Essentially im looking for something that will keep the black bits black - currently use Turtle Wax tyre gel, which does work, but not for very long lol. Im not a detailer (by any stretch of the imagination), but i will be cleaning the GP every couple of weeks & doing the black bits adds a good...

    So on the 10th August I picked up this little bad boy, proper review will come at a later date in my ownership thread, but for now, I thought id just put up some pictures. Apologies, my camera skillz are weak, but at least I didn’t use the iPhone4 this time round!! Done over 2k miles in it...

    Alpine CDE-178BT vs. CDA-137BTi

    Currently pondering between the 2 headunits, but cant really work out the differences. Have looked at various other units, but narrowed it down to these two. Both have bluetooth, cd player, ipod control etc. Cheaper one seems to do everything i want, but just wondering if its worth the extra...
