Added coolant and learned that I have a coolant leak somewhere. Just fantastic.

Looking good! I wanted a coupe, but they are super hard to find in or around Boston and I didn't want to pay to ship.
I feel your pain. Luckily there were three to chose from. All m sport. My blue one, grey and silver.

Completed the physical portion of my ACC retrofit! All I have left to do is perform the ACC start-up routine in ISTA.

Stock suspension. So about the rubbing... I read every post I could find here about 245/40/19 and possible rubbing before buying. Being that the diameter was going up 2.7% I was a bit worried. A couple posts said 245/40/19 was too big, but a few posts said they had no issues with it. I wanted 235/40/19 but not many tires come in that size.

Long story short, there DOES seem to be rubbing. When I turn the wheel more than 80% in either direction I hear a rubbing noise in the front. Back has no issues.

I am considering if I should switch to 235/40/19 in a different tire brand that offers it or put up with it.

Finished my ACC w/ stop & go retrofit! So far so good, super stoked as I've been working on this for a long time.

I also flashed the car to a newer i-step, the latest version that still lets you customize the turn signal blinker count and keeps surround view as the default setting when I put the transmission into reverse.

Suitable wax / sealant.
Products for rims are typically good candidates.

Dropped it off this morning for end of warranty check and brake fluid change. Checking error codes and advisory from the last MOT it will need new o2 sensors and possibly track rod end or rack.

I finally made it through all 6000+ posts! I always go through the "What did you do to your XXXX" when I get a new car.
Wrapped radiator support bars in Scotchlite reflective blue to match my M brakes. Nice "pop" when light hits it
Wrapped mirror caps gloss black
Gloss black grills
Painted exhaust tips high-temp gloss black
Ordered ACS springs, 6 week shipping :-(

As I only had a couple of hours free, gave the car a quick wash and wax and changed the grills for gloss black. Cliché I know but Tanzanite blue just doesn't look right with chrome grills.



End of warranty check with both o2 sensors replaced and brake fluid change.

Next thing to address are the side view cameras which either need replacing (used, I'm not paying £700 for a pair) or the lens trim sprayed.

Installed new Powerstop pads and rotors, and painted my grey Brembos blue. I think they turned out pretty nice. Unfortunately my rears are the single piston ones so won't looks at nice.

I replaced the chrome kidney grills with M-style double slat black kidney grills and also had Dinan Shockware suspension tune done. Love the look of the new kidney grills and how my 340i handles. Both were well worth the money.
