Re: New owner with an issue!

I’ve spent a lot of time tracking down and fixing interior rattles on my two F series cars. I’ve mostly got them to an acceptable level to me. I had a very annoying intermittent rattle / buzzing noise that appeared only in rough road surfaces. It sounded like it was coming directly in front of me ar...

I’m ok with fitting the front ones but are the side ones easy to fit too.
Is there a way to just pop out the chrome bit without taking the whole thing out?
The chrome bit pulls off with little effort and the black one just clips on. No need to remove the complete side gill.

Re: M performance exaust problem

That’s annoying. How many miles did the original MPE have on it and do you notice this is quieter with it being brand new and not ‘run in’?

Re: M2 to M2 Comp would you?

As has already been said, the N55 was retired because of the new emissions legislation and the cost of engineering to accommodate a PPF. Much easier and better marketing to just stick a detuned S55 in there. S55 is an N55 engine with closed deck engine block mate it is not detuned anything if anyth...

Re: Winters on M135i - MPSS are terrible in cold and damp

these are ultra-high performance summer tires there is only 1 road tire form michelin that is more extreme than they are - cup 2s therefore it is irresponsible to drive on mpss at freezing temps You’d better tell BMW that they’re irresponsible for selling cars fitted with them in the middle of wint...

Re: Winters on M135i - MPSS are terrible in cold and damp

Got to agree with GMballistic. You drive to the conditions, not had any problems on my M2 on MPSS in conditions down to freezing. Had winters on my M135i before that and found they came into their own below freezing especially in the wet. If I was to encounter snow I would definitely want winters b...

Re: Winters on M135i - MPSS are terrible in cold and damp

That said fair play to those who invest in winters as they no doubt safer in winter!

My comments were just them at the MPSS aren’t that bad if drive accordingly!

Re: Seat bolsters

Got electric memory seats? May be reverting to the stored setting, perhaps you need to save position after adjusting?

Re: M2 seems a bit whiny

I came from a manual M135i to a manual M2 so not a direct comparison to DCT, but my M2 is noticeably more whiney. Some of this is due to the diff and some due to the reduced sound deadening. The manual states that you will hear more mechanical noises due to the nature of the car. If your concerned t...

Have you owned the car from new? When I changed mine at 17k miles it was like black water. I wonder if yours has already had a change?

Christ boys - how the hell are you snapping them?
I had one break because it got caught in the threads of the fuel cap which split the cable. I just cut it off and used the holder for the cap in the door when filling up. Never missed the lanyard.
