E82 Aerial and DAB Aerial Questions

Ive had my E82 for nearly 2 years now and love the car. Firstly I noticed that listening to Radio 1 the reception was always poor compared to my old cars, is this usually the case? Where is the Aerial on the E82? Could the Antenna amplifier be faulty? The car has Pro Sat Nav HK sound system and Phon...

Productive week, CH-Rs and Eibachs now on my E82 123D

After owning the car over a year I decided on some subtle mods. Eibach Pro Kit and BBS CH-Rs to start. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/toyboy6969/DSC_0273.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/toyboy6969/DSC_0274.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/toyboy6969/DSC_0275.jpg http://i...

Re: Eibachs fitted to my E82 today, pleasantly surprised but worried with new wheels ordered!

I decided on the 8x18 fronts and 9x18 rears.

The tyres going on are whats currently on the car as they are virtually new. 225/40/18s on the front and 255/35/18s on the rear.

Ive seen many M135i hatches with CH-Rs on but seems not to be so many E82s about to ask about fitments/rubbing etc.

Yes an M-sport. I work for a car parts factors and ordered them through our account, part number E10-20-016-01-22 and the guy at Eibach confirmed they were for my car.

Re: E82 with BBS/reps

Ive been looking at BBS CH-R for my E82, they are not a cheap wheel. Would like to see some E82/E88 pics with them on if they are so common, cheers
