Re: Black Leather + White Paint... :(

Depending on the paint base, alcohol might help it shift.

Usual precautions! Test a hidden area. Maybe start with something weaker like Vodka, and if that doesn't shift it, different dilutions of white spirit + water.

Re: Huge Brake Shudder

Mine turned out to be a seized caliper.

Not a cheap fix as I replaced with new. You could probably get a second hand one on fleabay though. My concern was it would be a false economy so I bit the bullet and spent the £300 on new.

Re: A few extra tweeks / mods

I've always been a fan of polished calipers.

Difficult to keep clean, but you can get mirror finish high temp paint that looks amazing.

Re: Cruise Control Retrofit Part Number

Just clicked on that link again... someone has added an extra 1 to the front of that price since I posted it :| it was £75!!!

Oh well, QM have come back with £100 posted and currently in stock so I guess thats the way to go.

Re: Cruise Control Retrofit Part Number

Bluetooth Retrofit Question

Hi all I have a 2004 120i and would like to retrofit Bluetooth to the car. Unfortunately it's not a simple "follow a guide" for me... I have read the guides on this site about the retrofit but my car seems a little complicated. When I removed the headunit, it is one of the later units with built in ...
