Re: Reluctor Rings

Doesn't surprise me that garages don't want to work for their money..... :roll:

All they want to do is chuck a new part on and that's it. Absolute idiots.

Both require the shaft to come out anyways and that's the hardest part! Pure laziness.

Re: Dangers of Dpf delete without remap...

Don't remove the DPF. It provides no power gains, makes MOT a real nightmare, gets loads of money to the people who remove it who then sell it for £££ and charge you £££ for the work.

A decent honest tuner like Jason at BW chiptune will tell you this.

Re: Window Tints

I've never heard of that either if i'm honest. Cant actually see how either seeing as radio signal goes through walls etc.....

But £240 is well steep. Being in London i pay more for most things and services but even here its £140.

Re: Wheel Offsets and Widths Explained

Not sure if anyone else has created anything like this (probably), but if not, help yourselves. It's a quick and dirty spreadsheet that allows you to compare sets of wheels to see how much more (or less) they will differ from each other with regards to stickyoutiness. Pre-filled is my own set of St...

Re: New E81 owneer - Hello & help

Have you had the alignment checked? So many poor handling cars is all down to alignment. I have had cars done and its a night and day difference, that's what i'd be checking first off and getting the E92 M3 settings put on. Also if you're going to be doing that, get the camber pin mod done and maybe...

Re: Water?

The header tanks can split and this will only open once the cars up to temp and the water system is pressurised.

As Marco said, run it up to temp and keep an eye on it, there could be a tiny crack in the header tank that's causing water to escape once pressurised.

Re: Coolant top-up or drain?

Many thanks for the reply DB - useful to know how much gear I'll need to go back in the car - I think I'm going the coolant anyway for what it costs - I've no idea if its on its original water pump or not but the cars has definitely done 64k miles and as its only doing about 3-4k per year under my ...

Re: Coolant top-up or drain?

5 litres of concentrated Comma G48 is £23 from ebay and makes 10 litres mixed with Deionised water. I used 6ish litres in my 135i for a full change. Thinking of changing the coolant in my 130i. Just changed the diff oil so am getting round to changing those fluids that don't tend to ever get done. ...

Re: Coolant top-up or drain?

Its very easy to change the lot. just pull off a bottom hose and let it all drain out with the header tank open. Some have a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator too. Then fill it up from the header tank until its at the level it should be, turn on ignition but don't start the car, put heart tem...

Re: 135i n54 charge pipe options

I had an eBay one on mine and it was spot on.

Then changed to one with a bov that's bought from SSDD and that's also fine too.

Re: N55 135i spark plugs

It's cheap for the plugs they are. BMW charge £18 a plug (I know Right!) Buy you can buy a set of 6 Bosch super 4's for £47 from Germany. That's what BMW sell and just rebrand them.

That's for N54 though but I think the plugs are the same.

Re: Wheel fitment E82

From what i can find out the MV2 has an offset of 37 on an 8J wheel. This sticks out 17mm further than a standard 7.5j 18 inch wheel. You will always run into problems personally. I would be running an ET40 minimum on the front with stock set up. If you are fitting bilsteins also, you might want to ...

Absolute wa**ers mate!

135i. Done. The 130 will sell for good money because they're in scene at the moment, sell that and buy the white DCT 135i in the for sale section. LOADS of car for the money! I was even thinking of selling mine to buy it. Even better looking, better shape, back seats work, faster.... Need i go on. T...
