I know so gutted !! In this weather I just want to be out driving it. Also meant to be having the stacks fitting Saturday. Think we’ll see how much this costs and how long till I get it back. Hoping was just an airlock and bad tank. But we’ll see...

Car is finally back !!! I’m over the moon. Had the water pump, thermostat, viscous and new tank all done. Had Bmw coolant put in. Had a few bits done just as preventative while they had access to it. Took it for a drive god I forgot how much I love it ! All back to normal.

Stacks are getting fitted next weekend now. Can not wait !!!!

Air con condenser needs to get fitted. Not sure if it’s something I could do myself or not.

Glad to hear the issue was only relatively minor, if I had seen smoke and steam coming from under the bonnet of my M3 I would be booking an ambulance to have emergency surgery before it did.

stacks were fitted today. I’m over the moon with how they look at the sound!!!!!! So awesome. Really opens the sound up to how a m3 should sound.
