Re: B12 kit - What else at the same time?

Camber plates from Ian. Get them on with the M3 LCA's and you're away with a glorious front end that bites in and holds lovely. New anti roll bar links is a good idea as getting them off can be a pest. Although the 2 sets i have changed have been a piece of pi** to get off. Some will say new top mou...

Re: To sell, or not to sell.

I love driving mine in the wet! Why would i want a boring 4WD understeer monster that's like driving a sack of spuds about?! catching a little slide or the back getting twitchy makes the car so much more enjoyable to have. Get some drift lessons or some driving tuition on a track day, its invaluable...

Re: Shock absorbers price?

Price wise, yeah about right as shocks they will add their own prices too and labour wise for 3 hours work (which is max for that job) is £50+vat per hour so £180 plus £120 for dampers is about £300 worse case. Utter tosh its an all day job though! More fiddly than anything, but as they will have pr...

Re: To track car or not to track car?

Im keeping my E82 to be able to do both and can just change the damper stiffness to cope on track if i wanted to. BUT me and a mate are going to buy a Clio 172 as an all out track toy because its cheap and we don't giver a crap about it. Tracking a £10k + car to me sounds daft compared to a £1k one ...

Re: What dash cam? And anyone use Power Magic Pro on E8x?

I have an apeman from Amazon and I ran the cable into the headlining and down the A pillar into a usb extension. Then into the dash behind the glove box and poked out the lower console I to the usb socket in the cigarette lighter. Camera is behind the rear view mirror so I cannot see it and works an...

Re: 135i N54 Coolant Capacity

Pretty sure 5l of neat antifreeze should do the trick (10l 50/50 mixed). Any G48 antifreeze is the one. Cheers dude. Yeah that's what I've ordered. 5L concentrate of G48 and 5L of demonized water also. Hopefully should be fine :!: Does demonized water make your engine angrier and more powerful? :tw...

Does anyone have a definitive as Cotswold didn't tell me the amount either... Just want to know if i need to order more before it goes to the garage to be sorted (i'm past...

Re: ABS / Traction Control Off and Brake Light Warning

Don't let them tell you that you need the driveshaft replaced. You don't. BMW will tell you that.

You can get the rings from ebay.

Re: ABS / Traction Control Off and Brake Light Warning

The rings as Marco said would be my 1st port of call to check out. You may be able to clean them up a bit, but if they're corroded and raised, replace them. If you're not sure, an independent garage can sort it for you with ease, BMW wont do it and BMW are also mainly crap too. If the rings are fine...
