Re: Lost both keys

The gent that couldn't do it said that my car is cas4 but another locksmith told me it is cas3 I'm hoping his system hasn't made a hash of things but when he was scrolling through keys I noticed one allocated as I had the other erased after the break in. He did say that his system couldn't erase the...

Re: Lost both keys

Once I'm in the car though do I have to scroll through any menus or will the key automatically pair with the car without doing this? Also how does the blade slot in to the key fob?

Thanks

Re: M235i

I was hoping for them to drop to the 12k mark, but I guess it's a long wait or never then. I guess even at 17k they are still a lot of car for the money...hmmm

M235i

Hi there In a couple of years I am looking at getting a M235i so will be saving very hard for one :lol: Just seems a natural progression from a E82 118D :lol: I know the market can fluctuate value wise, but right now I am seeing 64 reg examples going for as little as £17k so in 2 years from now, due...

Re: Remap & Exhaust (Back Box)

I've had the mid box removed for a straight pipe, along with my Ulter straight through back box, there is absolutely no change to the sound whatsoever. It sounds exactly the same as it did by having a Ulter back box and mid silencer in place. Maybe I am trying to justify the £50 spent, but there fe...

Re: 118D Exhaust

Mid silencer + Ulter Back Box Straight through (no mid silencer) + Ulter Back Box Sounds exactly the same volume wise. Between these two configurations. As above. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-118D-E82-Coupe-Ulter-Performance-Exhaust-Rear-Back-Box-Twin-70mm/292414051306?epid=650349185&hash=item4415...

118D Exhaust

Hi Last year I had the standard Back Box on the Exhaust system on my 118D replaced, for a replacement by Ulter (it is a straight through Back Box whatever that means). However recently it's been playing on my mind, should I have the middle silencer removed? Will this affect the Engine behaviour in a...

Re: Remap & Exhaust (Back Box)

I plan to leave the CAT/DPF intact, will removing the middle silencer for a straight pipe affect the performance? I was told today it can affect the behaviour of the car, but was not told if it would be a negative or positive? Again would I require the remap adjusting for this? I'd imagine it would ...
