Re: F45 whining noise O/S/F

Sorry to say I'm unable to help as we had a 218d for three years and never an issue at all although we only covered 11,000 during this period could it be a bearing perhaps but either way I'd take it in and let the dealer resolve the problem for you? 8)

Re: 218 Coolant Loss

Hi Ian We had a 218d M Sport Active Tourer and during the three year period of ownership we never suffered with any issues like this, as it's a coolant issue I'm positive other folks on here will certainly have a better knowledge of overall mechanics than me. There has to be a problem somewhere in t...

Re: Buying new - the process - what do I need to know

Although not answering you fully, we originally ordered our first new car in Sept 2014, however, on receipt of the paperwork I went through it all particularly the complete specification against the on-line configurator simply to make certain that what I'd looked at buying was exactly as the dealer ...

Re: BMW 2 series 2017 m sport no cruise

I'm surprised that it doesn't have Cruise as standard. Even my 2017 F45 218i SE Manual has Cruise and Limit as standard. A comment on the LIMIT function: If you put your foot down, the limit function is over-ridden, so having the limit set to 30 then accelerating forward in traffic you may find you...

Re: Wing mirrors

The previous reply is a bit muddled on door mirrors. You should have ordered either factory option 313 - electric folding exterior mirrors for £190, or option 430 - exterior mirrors folding, automatically dimming for £420. Perhaps you should have read my post correctly in that I ordered our M Sport...

Re: Wing mirrors

It looks to me as if you may not have purchased Option 313 (Ext. mirrors - folding, auto dimming @ £420) which we did when we purchased the Active Tourer back in 2014, if correct than unfortunately you're going to be out of luck I believe. 8)

Re: Active tourer lead time?

I was looking out of curiosity this morning at my local dealership and they were advertising the same vehicle as one of their offers, my suggestion would be initially to check with your local supplier and see what they have to offer it's quite possible someone may have exactly what you're looking fo...

I'd suggest you drop a pm to johnboyblue who's sold his diesel version but could probably give you some good advice. 8)

Re: BMW 225i x-drive Active tourer

Hi Paul Initial thought being check a variety of differing websites such as https://www.germancarforum.com/f/bmw-2-series.99/, ignore the anti-brigade because they're not paying for the car and also have a look at the main BMW Technical Site, since changing in November I've removed quite a few of th...

Re: Brake feel / responsiveness

Hi Babaa Not certain as when we had our 218d M Sport the brakes were keen from day 1 and even when we sold the car with similar mileage definitely no issues such as you've described, I'm no expert by any means but perhaps they need to be bled as it sounds like you could have a little air in the syst...

As the title says, has anyone done this or got pictures of their 2 series with 666m competition wheels fitted?

Thanks
As this section is dedicated to the F45 and F46 I'd be surprised if anyone fitted this type of wheel to an Active Tourer! :lol: 8)

Welcome to the forum but unfortunately you'll need to use a translation program as some people may not understand German.

Re: All change

John Very interesting thread in several ways as I've just turned 70 in December and my other half collected a Mercedes AMG GLA45 which is incredibly quick and a complete turnaround for us as we were considering i3S, 225xe or possibly X2 as a replacement for the 2AT but having driven the AMG everythi...
