Brakes work fine so presumably no air in. Springs are great, no rubbing and it doesn't wobble as much!

Hot sunshine and proper 80's tunes is what I always imagined it was about. Baur convertibles are the way forward chaps!
:thumbsup It's a cracker mate. Glad you finally got to enjoy her properly. The gods were obviously smiling down on you with this indian summer!!

Got it back from Shauns paint shop today. Not perfect, there's a patch on the drivers door where something went wrong with the lacquer when he buffed it, he'll relacquer it at some stage. Also a couple of bits I need to fix like the drivers sill where it got gouged when I fitted the door and has rust on it, plus a big rusty scratch on the front valence. I also need to paint the sills black, make the exhausts look better, and sort out the clunk from the suspension/wandering handling!

Anyway I gave it a wash and a quick coat of autoglym, then my son put mud on it, and it rained!

Looks good Jim. Think I might get another Baur for sunny days while they're bargain prices ;)

Looking very nice Jim. Wheels and stance look perfect. Remind me to give you those centre caps when we meet up next.

Went out in roof down mode yesterday, even my Wife liked it!

The clunk in the suspension is very annoying though!

That looks great Jim! The wheels look fantastic, great job. The only thing I don't like is the BMW rear panel
