Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Summer color for the wheels. Very Subaru-ish

Electrical Issue

I had the car parked up for a week or so because of a seized caliper and when I tried to start it, the battery was dead? I had to jump start it and after 4/5 tries it fired up but there was no Turn Signals including hazards, interior lights and the rear brakes don't seem to be working. No power wind...

Re: Heavy vibration

So I drove the car for about 10 minutes and you’re all right.

The rear drivers side calliper and disc was hot whilst all the others were cool to touch.

Re: Heavy vibration

you feeling it through the steering wheel? or just the car itself? Could be a stuck brake caliper, if its through the steering, one of the fronts, if not, one of the rears after a drive, stick a hand on each wheel see if one is noticeably hotter than the others I'll give it a try tonight and report...

Heavy vibration

I'm scared to ask this question but my car seems to have developed heavy violent vibration. The whole car shakes, even the dash. It happens about 10minutes after driving off and lasts between 3-5 minutes before it smoothes out. It usually happens between 40 and 70mph between 3rd- 6th gear. Other sym...

Re: 118D Exhaust

I've had the mid box removed for a straight pipe, along with my Ulter straight through back box, there is absolutely no change to the sound whatsoever. It sounds exactly the same as it did by having a Ulter back box and mid silencer in place. Maybe I am trying to justify the £50 spent, but there fe...

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Wheels are Inovit Thrust 18x9J 215/35/18 and 225/40/18 Changed from a 35 profile to a 40 at the rear last week and will go to from a 215/35/18 to a 225/40/18 front set up once the fronts run out. May possibly buy Ian’s camber plates then. Offset is ET33. Car just recently passed MOT with them on. I’...

No winter tyres. Decided to leave it on the street and walked home after getting stuck in the middle of the road.

Re: Tyre Recommendations 18" on E82 120d?

+1 for the Uniroyals. Slightly softer sidewall but it still provides excellent feedback and grip, even for spirited driving. Highly recommend.

Next car after the 118d, what would you get?

Sorry I missed the bit your later part of the post about the BMW's. The E46 can be expensive to run if the big jobs have not been done. A good one will at least cost £10k. Anything under that is likely to buy either a high mileage or rusted one. I spent over £15k on work to mine in the 2 years i ow...

Re: Next car after the 118d, what would you get?

Just an update. I’ve got my eye on dealership 335i’s which come with dealership or RAC warranty. I’ve seen some SE’s with 70k and FSH and warranties for around the £5000 mark. An Msport would be ideal so I’ll keep an eye open for those if they pop up, maximum 120K with at least 6months warranty. Not...

Will probably test drive both if I can find any in Scotland.

Re: 2008 123D

It vibrates if you’re moving, reach peak power and then lift off. It’s hardly noticeable, mostly feel it if your hands on the gear knob and it lasts for 3 seconds or so. That’s a result of engine braking on a four cylinder, don’t think smoother 6 cylinders don’t that. Not sure if this is what you’re...

Re: Next car after the 118d, what would you get?

It’ll be easier to stick with the 1 series and get the 130i as I can swap over some parts and retrofit parts from one car to the other but I was curious to see if something else could tickle my fancy. So far with my research I’ve noticed how Megan RS’s change hands so often, some having as many as 5...
