Re: N55 oil top up

Mine wasn't asking for any, Just thought I'd run an oil check as I know they burn abit and like it to be on the max mark so it doesn't get starved of oil around bends etc don't think that'll help tbf. Heard of one guy seized engine doing half a doughnut (didn't even make it full circle), even with ...

Re: Maxton Splitter, or what was..

Self tappers into a plastic material that flexes. You must be having a laugh. Yep,self tappers DONT work at the speeds our cars can reach👍🏼 thats it though. I'm not going to the limiter, nor do I plan to go to Germany so it makes no odds to me. It's the lazy fitting method but it works and it's bee...

Re: N55 oil top up

Are folks topping up because iDrive tells them? I do about 16,000 miles a year and haven’t ever topped it up! With no dipstick unless it shouts at me it doesn’t get anything. Edit - Thought I better check and ran the measurements, it’s now asking for 1L so yeah they do seem to use oil! That was sin...

Re: Maxton Splitter, or what was..

Looks like they fitted it with flipping self tappers!! :shock: My splitter is fitted with Jack Nuts, tested to Autobahn speeds successfully. Self tappers usually are fine. It's how most are doing it, especially with Maxton. Not seen one person have this issue yet on the FB groups so perhaps the ins...

Re: Warm weather - finally the m140i 'works'

This is why I only buy 4WD cars now. My S4 simply doesn’t wheelspin. The advances in 4WD mean they’re actually fun to drive now too. If having rear wheel drive makes it a “driver’s car” then I’m really not interested. It’s sad to have to wait until it’s very sunny to enjoy your car. I’ve been there...

Re: BMW M140i Run in oil change

Can't put a price on peace of mind. However no real point changing oil in my opinion until the computer tells me. It's long life oil for a reason, changing it every 8-10k miles seems pointless imo.

Re: Steering rack - Knocking Sound (FIX)

my real concern, is the noise we hear an actual PROBLEM? or is just the way it is/charastic? Mines booked in for the 19th this month but i've been fobbed off before saying its normal.

I'll be getting it in writing this time.

Re: Steering Knock

Got my car back from BMW. Apparently this is 'design related'. Who designs a steering rack to knock. :D https://i.imgur.com/vkhQOod.jpg Anyway I've booked it in next week for a tech to come and listen to the noise. Seems as if it's getting louder to me. I've booked mine in for next month, similar n...
