    Electric fan , and viscous , also a locked viscous centre for those hot days , bonnet vents cut in
    Immobilser , no key on column , push button start (doors still have keys in case of flat battery , otherwise remote CL)
    Custom prop, recent new e46 m3 guibo and centre bearing

    gen. Bosch 044 fuel pump and ali tank with swirl pot / collector and baffles, stock tank is removed (no gauge)
    Electrically adjustable (!) Recaro hans SPG bucket seat, skinny fit, (new - £2k +!),
    Harness,

    has optional bolt in silencers for tailpipes (never used these was 88db static at Snetterton) is proper loud under load and has a nice pop and crackle on the over run.

    Wheels are 18x10j Rota boosts in satin black , et35 , nankang ns2-r up front 120 compound and decent tread up rear , these are 5x114 and on 25mm 120 to 114 adaptors , all round 10j's nothing catches on lock even at low low ride height.



    its obviously a drift car and as such has a scuffed splitter , slightly cracked rear bumper and minor dent in the rear NS door , and is full of rubber dust from using this car a lot. I used this car to do passenger rides at shows this year at lots of different places and its been ultra consistent and reliable which I feel is a testament to its maintenance and build quality by both me and the original builder (ex prodrive engineer) , anything its needed , i've replaced ASAP as I needed the car to be 100% to do the taxi rides.

    Car has been insanely reliable , only breakdowns I had were a snapped power steering pump bracket (remade from 6mm laser cut steel , will never break again) , and the crankshaft sensor died when I first bought it , (replaced with genuine)
    The car does about 280miles on the motorway to a full tank , which is about 55 litres (aftermarket tank)

    It will do a drift day on a full tank no problem. (£70 on v-power)

    It drives fine on the road , unlike a lot of drift cars , the size helps , its very fast on acceleration and upsets a lot of expensive exotica.
