Re: How to make your 130i the best car on the road..

Just for peace of mind - does anyone know if you have to remove the rear lights to take the back bumper of an e81?

Front Bumper off my TT to change the oil filter - mind you it was a stupid car to begin with! Which model (engine) TT was that? It was the 3.2 v6...

Re: Engine oil - Advice

And Petronas seems to be fine - I have been using it for a few years now as you can usually get it cheap from ECP when they do an oil code, mind you im sure Halfords own brand would be ok if its LL04

Re: 04 120d Diagnosis

Did you jump start it from under the bonnet or the battery in the boot?

If it was from the battery it's possible you have blown a module by forcing power through it

Re: Front tyre inner edge worn through
