Well chuffer I doing good now,work has picked up a good bit thank god was getting worried there for a while,how's are u!!! Hope all is well and your van is treating u good!!! Not so sure about the chrome mirror covers aas I hopeing to get the bumpers and plastic moulding sprayed ( hopefully by the end of the summer with a bit of luck) bmw logos are being taken off and some renault ones put in there place,and tyres are load rated 104 Xl so that should b more than enough,I did by spots for the front but have changed my mind about fitting them and got some led,s instead ,just wasn't worth it to fit the spots get the stalk and all ,LEDs are easier and I can put them any were on the bumper but have not decided were to mount them yet!! Trying to keep it simple as I feel that's the way to go,have to go to an alloy wheel supplier and get some chrome wobble bolts for the alloys this week as the bolts I have on are a bit dirty looking and may b some nice vavle caps to finish them off !!!!

Yep things are good with my van, so far it's been the Air con radiator, front brakes complete, top suspension mount bearings, accelerator position sensor.
Oh and a new piece of carpet in the back - got to have some comfort eh.
Glad your work has picked up for you, sounds like you may need the pennies for some more goodies:d
I'm working my way round repairing the bumper scrapes on mine & replacing the mud flaps as they have seen better days apart from that it's going well, touch wood.

Hi, Yes it is the same year as yours '09 It's done 70,500 miles.
The air-con condensor had to be replaced just because all the fins had totally corroded & disappeared & i wanted to check the A/C was working.
The front brakes were 70% worn so they need doing, discs were pitted & O/S caliper was rusted.
Top suspension 'donuts & bearings' the O/S bearing was knackered & i was getting a clonking sound on full lock.
Accelerator sensor was faulty & sending duff info to ECU & making the quickshift gears 1 & 2 jumpy.
The mud flaps i got off ebay £26 for the front as they were broken, got them yesterday 'nice'.
Your rear flaps are ok, they fit well by the looks of things, as for bumper scrapes (see photo's) i am just sanding down with a fine 240 grade & filling with isopon bumper fill compound & spraying with a dark grey bumper spray.
Your front bumper is tricky as it's so big to spray up yourself on your driveway - send through a photo of the damage.
Have a chat to 'Velsatisfied' he will know what to do.
