Re: High mile 123d - what to look for.

Re: DPF

Anything which never had a dpf (most but not all Euro 4 and lower) will obviously not be affected by any changes in rules and regulation, with the exception of perhaps extra charges or local exemptions with regard to entering major cities. All Euro 5 and upwards will have dpfs by the nature of emiss...

16" Winter Wheels fit 123D M-Sport

Hello, I have been trying to find out if these wheels will fit my E82 123D M-Sport but I cannot find the answer anywhere. It seems they will fit the 1 series with small brakes, however I believe the 123d m sport has either 300mm or 330mm brakes. Does anyone know if this will be too big for these whe...

Re: BMW E81 Wheel Spacer Advice

Sorry, I was talking to andrewuk. I should have quoted him. Yeah they are definitely the stock M sport springs. It just fills the arches better now because of the spacers so looks lower. The front tyre being a 225x40 fills the arch gap better as well. It looked the same as any other E82 Msport befo...
