Back in April bought an 06 facelift 156, 20v (175bhp) diese to replace my 10v. Good car, fsh dealer stamps, 54000 miles, one lady owner, cruise, rear park etc. Dealer was a BMW specialist so wanted to get rid of car got £200 knocked of price, service, new aux belt tensioner included in deal.
Since then I have transferred by Koni golds and Eibach springs over from the 10v; had a stainless exhaust fitted from the down pipes back
(replaces cat with plain pipe that can be replaced with cat for MOT), 3 inch tubing, noise increase kept to a minimum - still sounds good though. Had the intercooler uprated and moved to the front (lost the fog lamps). The turbo has been replaced with the 159 210bhp version and then remapped - wow, fantastic difference - need to put it on a rolling road to get actual bhp but feels like it is pullong more than 230 brake and I have no idea on torque but pulls like a train.
