Headlight dip direction swap. E82

So I am relocating to Slovenia for work and I am driving my 125i over.

Is there a dip angle swap facility on my halogens? Stickers look crap and are not really a solution....

Anything shorter than the 130i diff is a waste of time.

130 struggles to do 60 in second gear. It's already very short.

Looks like 125 ratios are slightly nicer actually, even without the longer diff.
The only complaint with my 125 is that 6th seems a little short, 80 is around 2800 RPM

Go on realoem, look up your parts and 128i parts. If they are the same it will fit.
Gearboxes are the same.

I was more interested in user feedback and if there will be any snags I need to be aware of, particularly with the upgraded linkage.

Re: Broken Heart

Thank you for the interest, the steering wheel is in good condition and unmanaged apart from the airbag. During my ...

Re: Coolant sign

You dont start the engine to bleed the coolant system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Os8jaSYm2_Y Be careful believing everything on the internet without checking context. That video was for a US E90 (3 series), although the same procedure works for the "newer" model 1ers (F-series). Doesnt work o...

Re: Coolant sign

If it drops at all in an hour without turning it on, then you'll have a BIG leak. Turn it on with the filler cap off, and you may find it drops a little as the pump circulates and removes any air that got in to the system. Dont worry if some coolant blows back into the tank - thats normal. Dont let...

Get a short term rent on a garage lockup and break it there.

120d v 125i Spring rates.

My 125i has covered a lot of miles now and the springs are starting to get a bit saggy. A buddy cleared out his garage and found a set of msport springs for his 120d that have covered 50 miles,he went straight to Eibach apparently. My question is: Is there a significant change in spring rate/ride he...

Re: thoughts on turbo flutter?

Turbo flutter is normal,it wont damage anything,if it bothers you then fit a wastegate. I think you are confusing wastegate flutter with turbo flutter,they are different things. All turbos have a wastegate already (barring some Porsches etc) Do you mean diverter valve or blow off valve, sometimes c...
