  1. OBD2 adaptor for 2001 Elise?

    That's the one I have and it worked on my 2005, is yours a v1.5 or v2.1 because I've had issues using the newer v2.1 ones.

    That M3 looks awesome, love the colour, they should all be loud colours. Im on my 4th BMW now, always been a fan from working on E30's back when in university. Ive had a 2007 E85 Z4, 2008 E92 320d M Sport and currently a 2017 M140i and 2016 F11 520d M Sport. Got rid of my E92 for a GT86 when we got the F11 and always missed it, I still think its one of the best looking cars on the road. Didn't get on with the GT86 so started looking at another BMW. Because of the silver wing mirrors and bumper fins I don't think black grills will suit my white M140i.

    I went with my mate a couple months ago to buy a 440i GC, put pretty much every option on it. Apart from the HUD and extras its pretty much the same as my M140i inside as far as quality and controls go. Only 322bhp/450nm which I remind him off all the time.

    Part of the reason I buy or lease newer cars now, I don't want any unexpected bills and will most likely trade in the M140i once its out of warranty. Guy at work asked me today if that was my new car in the carpark today, said 1 series are for girls. I just said you clearly don't know your cars. The M140i is perfect for me right now, I didn't have time to use the Elise as it should be. Now I can drop the little one of at nursery then take the long way to work and have some fun.

    I wouldn't consider VW top of the game when it comes to hot hatches, the bench mark seems to be ford these days with its Focus RS and Fiesta ST.

    I contacted cotswold BMW through the babybmw forum as they offer discount and ordered the parts from them, cost £145 delivered but you don't really need the 4 plastic trim clips unless you break the old ones on removal. Local sytner quoted £165. 1 x 33326797099 Tension strut1 x 33326793651 Pushrod left1 x 33326793652 Pushrod right2 x 33306861221 Torx bolt4 x 51118174185 Expanding plastic rivet 2 x 07147201307 White plastic parts Very easy to fit, I ended up doing it on the driveway, didn't even need to jack the car up to get access and took about 1.5 hours. If you have access to a ramp would take half that time. Been for a blast tonight and would definitely recommend it, car feels more focussed now. I can't decide if the performance black grills would look right on alpine white with the silver wing mirrors and bumper fins. If I had any other colour I'd have fit them by now.

    Picked mine up on 31st March, B58 M140i manual, 335bhp/369 ftlb. We also have a 2016 520d Tourer and this feels just as quality but so much smoother. It has a lot of rear end grip considering the power. Plan to leave it standard but have fitted the under body rear strut brace from the 3dr which stiffens up the rear end and makes it more planted and less sloppy when on the power. I went in looking at used cars on 27th, agreed a deal on the 28th for this new in stock car and was driving away in it on the 31st with my private plate fitted.
  8. Now that's a rare site, your Elise on the road. 4 years living on the next street over and still don't think I've seen it yet.
  9. I was going to ask the same as I know its not in Abbey Park like google maps suggest. Is it of Slater Street or around the back of VW?
  10. He is a top man, i travel around 30 miles to see him but well worth it. He's fixed an annoying rattle for me now and also fitted a pre cat o2 sensor. If your reading this Gav my misfire issues have been resolved and the cars running 100% now.
