Managed to find time whilst visiting @supersprint_official to check out the town of Mantova.
A beautiful little town especially I imagine during Christmas with the added lights. I’d like to return to explore properly one day.

Drove through the Austrian/Italian Alps today on the way down to @supersprint_official, awe inspiring landscape and one I’d love to visit properly. Here’s some rubbish phone pictures.

Little update on the E36 M3, since the last update I’ve done a few things but nothing major.

Fixed the clutch issue with a @hackengineering braided clutch line, although the flywheel has a slight rattle and the shifter bushes still need changing. A Storm Motorwerks gearknob has vastly improved things though.

Exterior wise the awful headlights and DRLs have been replaced with OEM headlights and fog blanks. Took this chance to fit ambers to the car also. Lots of stuff to do but at the moment just driving it is more important than tackling the mountain of niggles.

At the start of a long road, looking forward to 2019, getting the car where I want it to be mechanically and get back out on track, it’s been too long.

Took a trip over to @caffeineandmachine today, safe to say it did not disappoint.

Put together this dramatic cinematic style teaser Trailer for @eventuri_’s next Intake System, the B48 F56 Cooper S/JCW

Finally had a chance to go get some photos of my new project! Working at @evolveautomotive it was only a matter of time before I got an M car of my own, and I've always loved the E36 shape. (nothing to do with them being the cheapest, honest)

Travelled up to Scotland to pick up this 1997 E36 M3 Evo in Techno Violet. It's done roughly 95,000 miles as the clocks have been changed, and along with the questionable exterior modifications has had the interior changed to black from grey, BBS RC wheels from a 328i and @bilsteinuk B12 suspension.

First job was to refurbish the brakes after finding the pads had separated and one caliper was in bad shape. At the same time the engine and gearbox oil were changed. Next up was a much needed Alarm thanks to @kamice1.

The clutch was awful so a braided clutch line from @hackengineering was fitted to raise the bite point.

And of course, it had to have an @eventuri_ fitted! At the moment it's just a housing attached to the MAF, but I'll be sorting some form of air vent to feed it ambient air.

Next up is to sort some dodgy wiring and un-modify.

Thanks to @astons_life and @hashy_vxr for their help so far, and much more in the future 😂 #E36M3 #TechnoViolet #TLDR

First time at #SundayScramble this morning, nice start to a Sunday! Decent variation but if they'd nudge the cut off to late 90's that'd be ideal.

I was back down at @canfordclassics today filming their 5th Open Day! Good to be back around some classic Porsche, and as you can see the turnout was pretty top notch. Video to come in the next few weeks. #MattDearPhoto #CanfordClassics #ClassicPorsche #Porsche #Aircooled #Watercooled #911 #912 #914 #930 #964 #993 #996 #997 #991 #Motoratus

Captured this extremely rare natural phenomenon I believe they used to call 'rain' at the @meguiarsuk BBQ, it smelt nice and felt good against my skin. There was cars and friends there too. #MattDearPhoto #EvolveAutomotive #Meguiars #MeguiarsUK #MeguiarsBBQ

Had a weekend off the cameras when I took @starlam2 to Gravity. Channelled my inner @pmcgphotos and used my phone instead. I've always been a bit disappointed with the photos a phone produces so the HUJI app is a fun way to make it a bit less serious. #GravityShow

Players Classic was a banger, best show no doubt. More photos on my FB page, and yes they're mainly BMWs. #PlayersClassic #PlayersClassic2018 #EvolveAutomotive #Eventuri #CSFrace #CSFradiators #Wavetrac #BMW #Players #PlayersShow

New projects are always exciting things, but when it's a 4WD twin turbo V8, it's just a little more exciting than usual 😉 Knowing what the F10 M5 can do, and how limited it is by traction, this should be an absolute rocket once we're done with it - @Lycan_M5 #F90 #M5 #F90M5
