Re: Kidney Grille Replacement.

I replaced mine recently for black grills and they just pulled out from the front. It needed a fair bit of force and a wiggle but they came loose without doing any damage.

I was advised to try this by a paint detailer that I know and it worked :D

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

As a newbie what’s noticeable about the switch from run flats? I’ve got 4 virtually brand new Potenza’s on the 1er as it was from a main dealer but don’t know if these are run flats or not and reluctant to change them unless there’s significant benefits. The most noticeable differences seem to be b...

Re: Pads & Discs

I normally get weekly emails from gsf giving up to 60% online prices which normally saves a fair bit over ECP prices.

All you need to do is subscribe to their emails.

Re: Kidney Grills

I just bought a pair of black grills for my E81 MSport from Cotswold BMW and they were around £48 including delivery.

They were very helpful and delivery was quick so I would definitely use them again.

No winter tyres.

Re: E81 window issues

I was thinking that it may be the motor as there is no noise when I press the button.

I would have thought that if it was the regulator I would still hear the motor turning????

E81 window issues

There have been a few people recently having issues with windows due to the frost. I had the same issue a few days ago and the window reset worked for a couple of days but now the window doesn't move at all. Is this likely to be the motor or just a fuse blown? If it is likely to be a fuse what fuse ...

Re: 1st time 1er buyer

Wow I like your thinking lol I’m thinking of an M2 <heads out to roll the car> Congrats on the new car. Red looks great as long as you keep on top of it and a nice polish and wax twice a year. Loads of nice subtle mods (as I’m sure you’ve extensively read) so any help just ask and we’ll do our best...
