If in doubt, email Goodyear. They're always very helpful.

Re: New Asym 3's 255???

Stock rims are relatively skinny, 8" = 245mm is maximum rear width.

Re: Sick and limping M135... help needed

They're background codes, something like:

plus possibly:

- 1A2804 electric fan, for operation: Limited

I don't suppose you have a guide on how to remove the slip ring?

Re: BMW E82 125i sales advice!

I just don't get the maths. You're selling a car which has basically finished depreciating, and spending an extra £10,000+ to buy a car that's going to depreciate £2,000 a year. All in the name of saving something £20 a week on fuel? Seems like a massive outlay and horrible depreciation, for negligi...

Correct. The rears are ballooned out, and the fronts riding on the tyre walls.

Re: Track use

Excellent advice. Looking forward to setting up my M140i with something similar. The goal is to run a 245 front and 265 rear A050 or Z221 R specs. The big question will it work with +35 offset at the front with 3deg neg camber and rolled guards? Rims I am looking at only come in +35 fronts 8.5"...

Re: Buying an M135i auto out of warranty, options?

As Tim_C said, be wary of the mileage. At 60k the warranty cost basically doubles.

Cannot wait to see this.

I can't wait to see "160mph at just over 4k" revs in a 123d either. :lol:

I make just over 4k revs nearer 130mph.
