Normally I would go through the install and review before I upload the driving videos. But I couldn't resist and had many requests for this setup. So had to get it uploaded asap. Hope you guys enjoy it!
First of all this isn't real, however striking it may look. There are currently no concrete rumours of a CSL version coming anytime soon for the new M4. But thanks to RC82Workshop for this amazing render what it could look like if BMW ever decides to make one in the future. No need to be disappointment though, as the M4 GTS Prototype is coming along nicely.
My E92 (M3) has started making a weird squealing bird chirping like sound from the air vents. It's either aircon related or the fan blower starting to fail. I have attempted to spray some WD40 on to the bearing from the engine compartment by removing the microfilters. I "think" it helped a little, but it still makes a little bit of a weird sound now and then as demo'd in the video.
I will attempt to take some interior trim apart and get to the fan blower itself (item no. 1 in the diagram) and see if I can lubricate it even more.
What more can I say? Just listen to that sound! Sounds better than the E9x M3 in my opinion. It was too easy to make the S65 V8 overly raspy with any x-pipe modifications but I guess with the new turbocharged engine, it's likely to be quieter from stock therefore you can design a much more aggressive sounding exhaust system to bring the noise out.
Never had the opportunity to listen to the Meisterschaft exhaust in person over here in the UK. They're very expensive, not to mention the shipping and import tax on top. Anyway, start saving up if you're interested. I have a feeling it won't be cheap.

Breaking news! Looks like we're going to get a GTS-variant just like the E92 predecessor with the new M4. With its large front spoiler and somewhat ridiculous large wing spoiler at the back, we can assume this going to be the new M4 GTS. Unless its' a really badly modified car from someone who has watched too many Fast & Furious movies on DVD. It's still early to say when or what it's going to be, judging by the mix and match wheels etc.
We can assume it'l have increased power, M Carbon Ceramic Brakes, bucket seats, roll bars, bigger intercooler, no rear seats, special wheels, unique paint colour, weight reduction. These are all just guesses. But if we've learnt anything from the E92 GTS, then its should follow a similar program I'd say.
One last thing, the E92 GTS was an interesting collectible in my mind, but costing nearly £100,000 seems bit insane for a M3. I love my "standard" M3 to bits, but paying for that premium doesn't equal to a supercar. It's still a 3 series at the end of the day. Let's wait and see how much this new M4 GTS will cost this time around.

What's it going to be? The new iWatch that's been rumoured for thousands of years or the heavily leaked iPhone 6 and 6 Plus? Personally, I'm happy with my 5S and a little bit interested in a watch gadget. Something new(er) I guess. I doubt this is a Mac event, but I want to see a MacBook Air with Retina, please?
We will soon find out in a few hours. Hit the button to watch the Apple Event live online.
At only 8mm thin, and weighing in at less than 400g, the 2015 IKEA Catalogue comes pre-installed with thousands of home furnishing ideas.
Dyson's first robot vacuum cleaner has just been announced, previously known as the 'Project N223'. It'll be released later in Japan first early next year. As usual, Dyson claims it's the most powerful robot vacuum cleaner out there on the market, with Wifi app support to control and update the robot. One of the more interesting feature of the 360 Eye besides from sucking, is the '360 Eye', as its called. It's a 360-degree camera with infrared vision so it can map its surrounding to ensure an efficient cleaning program to be carried out on its own. Along with its tank-like track to drag itself around the house ensuring maximum traction.
All very exciting if you're either into robots or super lazy at cleaning the house. Honestly, I wouldn't mind having one if its not ridiculously expensive. Rumours has it, that'll be around £750 when it launches? And I thought the 'Dyson Cool' fans were expensive.
Anyway watch the video to find out more or visit the Dysons' website for a blatant Apple Mac Pro pre-launch website rip off.
I spent hours and hours cleaning the car today since it wasn't raining (a rare phenomena in England), but I won't get to use the car for the next few days and forecast says its' going to rain tomorrow (hooray). Therefore I decided to cover it up in the meantime with my recent purchased car cover from Cover Your Car. I have previously reported about it here.
Anyway here are some images of what it looks like once fitted on to the car. Its a very nice snug fit and matches the contour of the car very nicely as you can see. The edges are elasticated so it wraps around the bottom and edges of the car very securely. There's also 2 included straps to tie down the middle section underneath the car to stop air getting underneath the cover, which is awesome. In conclusion:
Although I have a garage, its' sometimes easier just to cover it up in the car port. Added bonus of being able to air dry the car a bit more as well. All in all, I love this cover. It was a tad expensive at £78.90, but well worth it.
