This is massively late, I had plans to write a great long post to go with it and I forgot. So let me get down to business and let you know what we managed to drink whilst we were staying at the Abercrave Inn in Wales… last year!
- 3 pints of Directors
- 6 pints of Rev James
- 18 pints of Brains SA
- 4 pints of Guinness
- 8 pints of Pepsi
- 2 pints of Magners
Not bad for 3 days, 42 pints of juice!

This is a really cool film of the V8 BMW M3. Seriously good work from the makers!

This is one of the best BMW adverts I have seen.

Mystic Dave the technology director oversaw the full service of Shane’s car. It was sounding ‘in need’ so in addition the oil filter and oil, the plugs were replaced with uprated NGK Platinum items. The air filter and micro filter were replaced. Finally the fuel filter was replaced. The latter due to potential bits that may have entered the fuel system from the bodyshop work completed earlier in the year.
It’s like a new car now. Exhaust and engine sound smooth as anything compared to before. In future, oil change every 6 months is on the cards!!

We have added an article about installing the DICE Electronics iPod integration kit. This took us about a day to complete because of where we wanted the iPod. The result is quite effective and I am very pleased that I finally got round to buying it! We have photos and a short video!

Depending on how good your German is, this old video might not make any sense to you (I certainly don’t understand a word!). The video shows how BMW create an E46 from start to finish. The manufacturing process is amazing to watch! You can always click through it a bit!

Before the next track day arrives I thought it would be wise to provide a very quick and dirty analysis of the data I collected on the Performance box. For those of you that may have seen some content here, things have changed, you will find the overview as it stands now in the ‘Track & Travel’ articles…
We have not managed to get all the data in yet. Grant has found his files and so we will aim to put more info in soon!

Short video with some nifty timelapse sequences when Mystic Dave, the engineering director, and Shane installed the new anti-roll bars.

Here is a shot from 2004 with Aidy on his GSX-R and Dave on his Ducati! Remember the photos at the reservoir boys?

After 11 months I finally took my test and am pleased to report that I passed! A week earlier, Leigh also passed his test meaning that 3 out of 4 ridearound.netians are ready to ride! Dave will soon be joining us on the roads but he will be wearing the red L jackets for a while!
More details on all this to follow!
