Re: 125i vs 130i

Hmm interesting. Like I said, bigger and better than myself, so I’m happy to acknowledge you could be right but not too loudly. The 130i brakes did feel better than my OEM Set up although they still faded badly at Bedford after a few heavy braking laps. You need these: https://www.apracing.com/prod...

Re: 125i vs 130i

They are both 3 litre motors. Basically the same engine, but BMW restricted the power of the 125i so that it did not threaten sales of the 135i. Consequently, the 125i can be remapped to produce about 265bhp - the same as the 130i. The 125i has smaller brakes than the 130i. This too, is a relativel...

Re: Got some electrical power issues and need help!

Ok, so I just idled the car and checked. The reading seemed to bounce between 13.9v and 14.7v, stabilising probably around 14/14.1v. This is using a fairly cheapo multimeter and it's a 2005 car. Does these seem normal and like the alternator is fine or not? Ok then I would re do the voltage check b...
