Well , that's over 13KG removed. Those 2.8 back boxes and extension pipes are bloomin heavy.



Flexi joint, length of 60mm pipe and a very small can later....



I now like the exhaust outlet angle rather more and I can now tell I haven't stalled the car on tick-over. Not too loud or droning on a run either. And c9KG weight saved. Result.

The BMW medium blue seats were not really working with the look I am aiming for, so I bought a leather re-dying kit on line from thescratchdoctor.

Seats out, leather surfaces cleaned with leather prep and alcohol from the kit. Bit of light sanding. 3 coats of black pigment with a sponge, then 2 of satin leather finish sponged on. Few days drying, then back in car.

200 miles done since.

I'm really pleased....they have come our far better than I had hoped for. Has retained some of the aging / crinkles / wear lines but everything including the stitching is now black.
