Re: New wheels fitted

They look great! I absolutely love them. Remind me of some M2 wheels I saw posted here by one of the sponsors.

Re: Fitted this bad boy in my F20 yesterday :D

How do you know if you have a gps antenna? I don't have nav but the shark fin antenna on the roof, thought maybe it's inside that or is that only if you have nav? Here's my specs according to bimmer.work: http://bimmer.work/vin/c677917e73e9765a324466b7776ff15e/ I think it's only if you have navigat...

Re: Current Engine oil deals?

https://www.buycarparts.co.uk Is where I pretty much always buy my parts and oils from, very cheap compared to many others. If you can wait a few days, they very often also offer 20-25% discounts. Keep in mind you need 5.2L for the oil change of a F20 as per the manual (may need more for the M135i)....

Re: New F20 Owner with a few questions :)

So I finally picked the car up :) http://i67.tinypic.com/dpzoed.jpg Congrats on the new car! Considering you've got an active warranty, I'd just have the dealer fix these things for you instead of bothering yourself, assuming the warranty covers your issues. If not, they're not hard to fix yourself...

On my f20 it's the button with a car and antenna on it.
Exactly. Looks like this:

Re: Fitted this bad boy in my F20 yesterday :D

I'm reading about people getting much better GPS performance/success rates by extending the GPS antenna into the shark fin antenna. Probably not worth the effort, but if anyone's been looking for an alternate solution, I guess there you go

Re: F20 120d exhaust advice

If you want it on the cheap, just goto an exhaust place and ask for a rear Muffler delete. You can probably get it done for £170 or so. Make sure they sleeve or flange it so you return it to stock at a later date. It wont sound amazing, but will give you some more volume. The DPF will act as a huge...

Yeah that sounds normal to me too. If you start hearing noticeable "ticking", you'd have to be worried :)

Re: Tyre help. Need one new rear but should I replace both

If the other tyres are fine I would probably just change the faulty one.

Re: F20 120d exhaust advice

Not sure if you've come across this thread, but if you find the parts for cheap it could be a good little upgrade that will also improve the aesthetics. Easier for you to do this also considering you've got an M-Sport chassi.

Re: Fitted this bad boy in my F20 yesterday :D

Ever since I updated the firmware to the February 2018 version, my GPS has completely stopped working. Refuses to find a GPS connection. Not sure if it's related to the firmware or if perhaps the antenna has fallen off/stopped working itself. Will experiment a bit tomorrow and see if I can get it t...
