Re: Fooked myself up good n proper!

Re: Top 5 things I hate on my BMW F20

For me it’s; 1. Instrument cluster (dated and ugly) 2. No digital speedo and it can be hard to know exactly how fast your going. 3. Speakers are the worst I’ve ever heard on any car, seems like they took them out of old barbie dolls. 4. On a long journey your back can hurt. 5. The business nav is u...

Re: cranking but failing to start intermittently 116i

Re: cranking but failing to start intermittently 116i

Check the positive cable that runs from the battery to the front of the car. These are known to corrode and cause the issue you are experiencing.

Re: M2comp, = B58 possible power hike ?

Re: Handbrake not disengaging properly?

Try driving along slowly and pump the handbrake. This is recommend by BMW to keep the faces clean and the auto adjustment working correctly.

Re: Can the Seatback pocket net be easily replaced?

Give your dealer a call and they will order you one. If they fit the same way as the E series you will need to replace the two plastic expanding fixings on the bottom edge as they are impossible to remove without destroying them. When I changed my seat backs I removed the bottom fixings and slid the...
