Air Con Compressor Noise

The last week or so, I've been hearing something from the engine bay (normally when at standstill) that is like a compressor coming on and then going off. It hums for a few secs and then goes off. I noticed yesterday with the hot weather (I have my air con turned on all the time) that nothing was co...

Re: Standard Tyres on a M140i 66 Plate

PSS's were fitted as standard though, I guess we get more wet and cool weather in the UK so PS4's might be worth moving too, they are also a little less on the pocket! I've got a JB+ so have additional power going to the rear, the car is a daily driver for work basically. Slightly off topic, how do...

Re: Standard Tyres on a M140i 66 Plate

Yeah can't really do LSD at the mo! I think new tyres will help! :)

Just checking though do most people rate the Super Sports again or the PS4's?

Re: Standard Tyres on a M140i 66 Plate

Is the recommendation to replace like for like then with super sports probably?

I've got a JB+ at the mo and it's suffering with 13k run in tyres in the wet big style :(

Re: Standard Tyres on a M140i 66 Plate

Hi Guys,

Just going back to this, I'm confused with the recommendations now...

So fronts are: 225/40/18 and Pilot Super Sports
rears are: 245/35/18 and Pilot Super Sports

I've got the option of Pilot Sport 4's I think or Pilot Super Sports on Tyresonthedrive?

Any recommendation?

Re: Ever wondered why we all pay so much for insurance?

I've just had a JB+ and I've just updated my insurance. It's not rocket science, why would I drive round with insurance I've paid money which is practically invalid.....if I had a serious accident, I wouldn't be under the bonnet trying to pull the JB+ off.... I'd be in an ambulance etc.... I just do...

Re: BABYBMW.NET CAR INSURANCE SCHEME with PRESTIGE KEEP MOVING

Rang today, the lady was as helpful as she could be, the whole process took over 30mins to try and get a quote which was pretty slow with a lot of unusual questions compared to other insurers....... Then I got a call back in about 20mins after the initial call, sadly the quote was about £800 off the...

Standard Tyres on a M140i 66 Plate

Hi Guys,

What are the standard tyres and sizes on a M140i 66plate? Away from my car at the moment?

secondly, I need to replace my rears, what might be best to go with if I was to mix with the standard fronts?

Taa

Re: M140i JB+ fitted today initial review!

I've got to be honest, my tyres have done 12k miles so I suspect I need some new tyres!!!! :)

It's on whatever the default setting was when it came, the back end is wiggling alot and I'm fairly gentle with the trottle tbh.

Re: Emails on Business Nav?

Doesn't have a native one as it's a Oneplus 3t!

So just use MS Outlook app :(

Is it not possible then?

Re: M140i JB+ fitted today initial review!

Yeah it's certainly nice to have that extra power, but you have to be very careful with it, in comfort mode it's fine in the current weather, although too much gas and you spin likely crazy.

I find Sports mode uncontrollable and way too much.
