  3. 2012 BMW M135i Black, 63K miles, manual, 2 previous owners (I'm the third) Full, extensive service history, with loads of invoices and original book pack. MOT August 2023 Fantastic, fully loaded spec from the factory! 2 keys Red heated leather Sunroof Adaptive suspension Adaptive headlights Pro navigation Folding heated mirrors Dual Climate Control Cruise Control DAB + loads more- please see pic of the spec list Modifications: BMW M Performance exhaust (fitted in 2013) Forge charge pipe Black grilles Rear spoiler (gloss black) Maxton rear diffuser (still have original) M3 wing mirror covers (still have originals) Heko wind deflectors This car has wanted for nothing. The service history is excellent and is mostly main dealer (logged in idrive), with independent specialists during my ownership. During this time, I have had the Valvetronic servo motor replaced under warranty (when I first bought the car), spark plugs, lower arms, gearbox and rear diff oil, front brake discs/pads, brake fluid etc etc. Last serviced at the end of October. The exterior is in excellent condition, with no rust whatsoever. There are a few minor age related marks, but nothing major at all. The alloys are excellent, all being refurbed just before I bought it. One has a 2cm curb mark (see pic). 4 X Michelin tyres with plenty of life left in them. Interior is stunning! Leather is lovely and everything works as it should. Original med kit etc in boot. The car starts first time, every time and drives as it should. Sounds fantastic. First to see will buy. I am in Gloucestershire.

    I currently have mine off the car, it looks to be in okay condition. But I did have the thought of what would I do if the joints needed to be replaced. The best route I could think of was creating new rods with spherical bearings at the ends, like rod ends with spherical bearings. What I would say, is don't use cheap spherical bearings.

  6. Super, as I may just try getting a new throttle position sensor. How long is that deal on for?

    Good stuff - I'm in the middle of rebuilding mine due to corrosion and still looking for the long link arm - I have the short one from a group buy on here a while back.
  8. I thought people had moved away from the AGU in favour of the later DBW cars that are cheaper, easier to tune (flash map mot bench map) and more plentiful? I think I'd have a chat with Badger5 - they're still doing amazing stuff with the 1.8T, I follow them on fb. Badger 5 Ltd | Stroud | Facebook
  9. Good chance I'm going to do an AGU conversion on this, anybody got any comments? Cheers Jon
  10. It will be mechanical as it only has one motor to drive both sides. It’s easy to take it out and inspect. Try manually moving it. Remove the plastic cover that hides is and there is a toggle in the middle. Pull the toggle to engage it and turn to raise and lower the spoiler.

    Yes I guess it makes sense to use the Porsche ones if they are already black. Thanks mate!
  12. Noticed this week when looking in the rear view mirror, the spoiler was wonky and only raised fully on one side. Other side was kind of at half/quarter mast. Is that likely to be a terminal problem on the mechanism, or just something that has come loose? Don’t want to use the car now just in case it finishes off the mechanism completely :( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    K20 / K24 Engine Swap

    Anything is possible but not heard of it being done. There is a mk2 with K20 swap and assume you would need custom mounts and custom management. I also sawon youtube a 997 with a turbocharged K20 swap - the ultimate car without chocolate engine maybe?

  15. Hi All, I am thinking of doing a Honda K20 / K24 engine swap for my Corrado VR6. Anyone have any ideas of if this is possible and how much it would cost. Thanks
  16. I used a Porsche clip as it’s identical but already black. For the fixed side I had to trim the existing part a bit to get it into the hole but then it was kind of like for like I think, it’s been a while 🤣

    I would love a close up picture for sure, thank you for joining and offering. Making the sleeve is easy except where it meets the clip, that's the part that I'm not sure about. If I could see a close-up picture of this area, maybe that would help me figuring this out.. I'm thinking of dyeing the clips black to match and maybe a nice thin leather for the visors. Thanks!

    I knew you were still around! Thanks for the update, now I can forget about those TT's. These MK3.5 look pretty good to me. What kind of clips did you used? That interior looks absolutely fantastic!

    Thank you, much appreciated. Close up pictures would be nice! Cheers

    Horn not working

    Actually its a little rubber cap on the back of the horn. Mine was covered in paint primer so didn't recognise it. Anyway, sprayed some wd40 into it after unscrewing the cap plus sprayed some via the trumpet. Tried it again but not much of a result. Lets see how it is after an overnight soak or if its prob easier to just get new ones. I'm sure I've got some glaswegian blood somewhere...

    On the Campaign, the trim shop at Karmann created a simple sleeve (in a silmilar way to goldfinger describes) using the same headlining material and stitched them along the top edge. Painting the grey brackets and connectors black in the process. You can still feel the light and vanity mirror underneath. I can put a picture up if you like, but it’s pretty basic.

    Good show. Just knew there’d someone either crossing or about to cross that bridge. Yes, keep us updated please. Anyone have a spare one of the above, feel free to get in touch.
  23. I am still alive, just snowed under with work. I didn’t use the Audi TT ones I had as they were too long. I ended up using the Golf 3.5 ones, not a perfect fit either but close enough for me

    Horn not working

    I’ve not done it on a corrado, but have on others. you’ll only have to move the nut a fraction. Can you navigate it via the plastic horns oriface?

    Horn not working

    is there any way to get to the inside nut? Removed the support bracket but cant see how to go any further.
  26. i will get some pics & post them up - TBF i do love the black alcantera above head in comparison to the factory grey

    By chance yes, I'm currently working on some options for replacing the bushes so hopefully will get something that works. I will report back if successful so maybe watch this space!
