For my rebody I need side indicator. When I do the side grill/gill I'm planning on using z4 side indicators the ones with the light in the badge.

But in the meantime, so I don't attract the wrath of plod, while out on a test drive I needed something temporary and cheap. So went for this:-

£8.99 Much Cheapness. Only problem is you gotta buy 10. That's all 10 for £8.99 less that a pound each.

I have a choice - I can fit 2 and have the other 8 cluttering up my garage.

Or I can fit them all and sing that christmas advert song - "Holidays are Coming, holidays are coming" - as I cruise down the road.

New exhaust tips for the E89

Old ones had seen better days so I tried to polish them but they too far gone. Bought a cheap pair from Ebay. Offered the guy a low price and it was accepted so £15 later they arrived. Was actually surprised as looked and felt decent to be fair.

Getting the old ones off was more difficult than I anticipated and had to use a bit more force on the left one with a chisel (carefully). When it came off the amount of stuff that was sandwiched between the fixed pipe and old cover was amazing. Looked like tarmac.
Whilst doing removing I also noticed a loose earth strap that had lost its nut so was a good job that I checked around.
New pipes fitted fine, had to use a rubber mallet and foam to protect them to secure them on.
Pleased with the result, not sure how long they will last but as they were cheap its worth a shot.

Evening

Picked up some extended leather hockey sticks and did a centre console swap with the facelift aluminium gear shift surround.

Not fully plummed in yet as it will be coming back out as I need to shift the wiring which means seats and carpets out. Also need some new bulbs in the dials.

Sport aluminium door cards and Black Sport Seats in the pipeline.

I need to get my wheels refurbed, there are one or two kerb-kisses I'd rather not see every time I look at the car. I still probably will at some point, but I thought for £30 this was worth a punt...
