  2. M3 V8 - Known issues?

    Some good history of actuators etc though on Cutters. I rarely post and now the E92 forum seems full of modders.

    I rarely do and have been picked up on it before. I'm a knob though because when I do, I feel so much better throughout and can push harder obviously. Must learn ...

    Well, more amazing is that I've just posted an all time PB in the pool. 1 mile, 28:58. I think that is more down to nutition than anything, I don't normally go to the gym so soon after breakfast.

    Hilarious. I dragged my sorry ass to the gym yesterday for the last session of my 30s. Didn't feel like it all and then go and post a years PB on the ergo! Odd.

    Indeed: Nottingham South. Most days.

    Well yes. Number 1 is getting to breathing on my left sorted while still getting a good session in. I can't do with breathing 50% less at the rate I'm working! It will come once left is natural. Although Monday I couldn't be arsed and just did right for the session!

    Well I'm still nowhere near my 10k row PB. Mind you, my training has hardly been consistent with numerous trips abroad. Only rowing, swimming and cycling once each a week so just maintaining for now. Bilateral breathing going alright, although the left hand side lengths are such a chore!
  9. Ordered a new S5 Coupe

    Hi again 18ME. What happened to the Boxster (I think). I work next to Borough Market these days and there is a shop there with similar kitchen pron to the stuff you sell online. Those copper pan, Mauviel or something, are eyewateringly pricey! Oh, and nice car.
  10. M3 V8 - Known issues?

    Throttle actuators are a common failure, upwards of a grand to sort. There are two and they fail at different times. Make sure running in service before 1200 miles has been done. If it is under warranty (extended) all the better. M3Cutters is a good source of E92 info.

    Give it two years and you can probably have it. For about £5k.
  12. VW - the biggest

    Pah, when I was account managing Toyota things were different ...
  13. Coincidence!

    Whatever it was. You remember. The one with the flat tyres.
  14. Coincidence!

    Sounds like you have a car stalker. I wonder if they have your Z4M too!

    My 10k time in Dec was 41 mins (41.10) but having done two efforts this year I'm off that for now, but it will come back quick enough. I hope. It isn't much fun but I quite like the countdown from 10,000 and just seem to while away the time hoping the time is going quicker than it is! I don't even have any headphones at the moment for it. I'm going to buy a C2 when we move house. So not until next year then! I'm pulling under 40 mins for over half of the effort but the last 3k beats me. Plus the machines at my gym have worn footstraps so I have to keep tightening them, although it seems real rowers don't even need them! Concept2 website forum is good for tips. Mook, after my Devizes to Westminster race I fancied the coast to coast, but then got married and have two young kids so it went onto the backburner. Quite fancy giving it a go though. My current job won't let me train consistently without sacrificing time with the kids and that is more important. Mike, great work. Stick at it. Small gains equal big gains with consistency. Oh, and try Becks Blue. I drink it all the time now and I'm quite satisfied with a few of them at the weekend. And I LOVE boozing but decided far too much so cut back hugely. Last year I probably cut my booze consumption by 75% and lost about half a stone without changing any other dietary factor. It is tough with work though. I'm up at 04:30 tomoorow for 2 days in Sheffield, followed by Leeds for a day. Then next week Chicago for a day then the next week Dublin then London for the following week. You can train, but not consistently. And diet is a bit rubbish eating away from home too!
