Re: What is this?

Thanks for the comments, chaps.

What is this?

Whilst re-fitting my summer wheels, I spotted a blue tube exiting by my offside rear shock.

Does anybody know what it is? :?

Re: Shock Absorber Trouble - Urgent Advice Please

The B4s are the same length as B8, they're designed for lowering springs. If you're sticking with stock M Sport springs you might have been better with standard B4.

130i LE Servicing - DIY or Indy?

The old girl is due a service and I'm contemplating whether or not to do it myself. It's not a case of competency in carrying out a service, but whether or not there's still 'value' in paying to have my booked stamped. I would normally use my Indy, Darren Wood.

Re: Best value winter wheels - X1 Steels?

As a few have said, second hand is the way to go. I've just picked these up from a forum member for less than £300.

Re: 130i to M135i Brake upgrade project

They look great!

Silver BMW text would be suitably subtle. Or alternatively full Brembo logo on the fronts, and just the Brembo icon on the rears?
