Just got this to fit, it's a zenders but does seem to fit directly and the joins under the bumper, I may have to carve side bits off the valance to make it a tidy fit, as I want the joins behind the bumper. Any one got any suggestions please advise. Cheers

I had a go at it and a friend help me through it, it wasn't that difficult, but he said don't bother doing the back bearing as they more complicated as rear wheel drive. Is this right?

yes he is totally right lol. getting the 323i rear bearings is a pain in the backside. fronts are so simple its a ten minute job once you got the wheel off.

Just a small update, I ve built a little garage for the car and luckily it just fits in there, but from here I can do bits and pieces to her more easily. Just a bit nervous on repainting the whole car right now, in case I scratch it parking up for the winter mmmmmhh
