Hey guys,

I've been away from this forum, and most others for that matter, for a few years. I sold an E30 M3 about 4 years ago now and had a chance of buying a Mk1 Focus RS. I set about tuning that and things went from strength to strength for me and we've become one of the top tuners for that car and fast becoming recognised for other marques too now.

In that time, E30 M3 tuning became extremely quiet, thinking it was probably due to owners wanting to keep these cars stock now due to the fast increasing values, and so I'm thankful that the Ford RS scene has been good to us. However, my true love remains with the E30 M3 and anything else M'powered for that matter. The past year has seen the tuning side for the M3 picking up again.

I still do the Dastek Unichip conversions for the E30 M3, but we can also live map the ECU for ignition and fuel, so it makes no difference if you have the MAXX system or want to go Unichip as well as all stand alone systems available.

Just a minor update for those who maybe interested :)

Paul.

Hi Paul,

Hello stranger, I'd wondered WTF you'd been!

Where you based now?

Simon.

p.s. any news on "our" M3?

Hi Simon,

The M3 scene went very quiet, as I mentioned in the initial post, but this year has seen things pick up again, so I thought I should come back on and see who's still about.

"Our" M3 proved to be one project too many for me after giving it a bit of a poke about. I decided to sell and had a reasonable offer from a chap in Cardiff, who's transformed the car.

I'm still based in Castle Combe and have set up a new business called Sabre Tuning which seems to be doing very well :)

I've got your pm, I'll call you over the next few days and have a natter :)

Paul.

Here you go Simon..

I'm unsure if that link will take you straight to the thread or if you have to register, but the car is now epic.

As you can see, quite a transformation.. I think it's been done sympathetically and everything looks "factory".

Stunning, stunning car!

Stunning I agree - but, although that was my reg., it's not my car   

Wrong colour, and what's under the bonnet?

And no photo's of the interior

But, But, when's my drive in it??
