Re: New Battery Time

If it's stop start then you need an agm battery and best get it coded so it lasts longer. Where you from? as many people on here would do it for a couple beer tokens.

Re: Worst piece of design

I've said this before and I'll say it again. My old Corsa Limited Edition on stock suspension, handled twice as better as my Msport on stock suspension. It's like driving a bus. I would get yours checked out as mines a 2011 msport and it goes round corners like it's on rails, admittedly not like my...

Re: What is this blue cable in my boot?

Cut it and see what stops working.........mine has that too, seems a little untidy considering all other harnesses are kept neat and tidy on the car.

Re: Nexen Tyres.

Never had a set of Nexen's before, I usually stick to middle of the range tyres like Kumho. I have had Toyo proxes if I remember correctly and they were very grippy but did wear out quicker than expected. Most big manufacturers of cars usually get a tire that's actually a lower standard than the aft...

Re: Has anyone seen this fault code?

Mine came up after changing my battery, tried 4 times to code it out with carly but wouldn't shift. It vanished by itself after an hours driving. I assumed the relay for the dash got stuck when battery disconnected and took the car a while to realise it had a new battery and shut off the amber servi...

Re: E87 118d M Sport front Brake advise needed

I have to do mine and have same car as squealing like a pig. You can do it yourself for around a quarter of that price if you have the tools. I'm doing mine when I get a dry weekend day and you can get all you need From Euro car parts.

Re: How to fit battery.

O.K, battery fitted and it had two drain holes either end so fitted hose and blocked off other end. I still have low battery warning symbol and have used Carly 3 times to tell it has a new battery so hopefully needs a day to reset itself. Anyone else have the amber ramp symbol after installing batte...

Re: How to fit battery.

I was thinking it was that simple but best to go into things prepared. Got carly just need to purchase the battery part of it. I couldn't find a battery with overflow drain only the £250 bmw one so if the battery hasn't got an overflow it can't need one right?
