Re: Mods that are compatible with 116i and 135/140i

I’ve often wondered this.

I have a 116i and was going to change it but work commitments etc meant I’d have to keep it.

I see you’ve had the remap done. How is it to drive afterwards? Apart from quicker. Smoother?

Anything you could tell me would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: BMW-Service page still down....

I have also been attempting to access these pages.

Just rang Williams Bolton to book in for a brake fluid service and quoted £104!!!!

I’m sure it was a lot lower on the Bmw service page.

My car is a 2012 too! What happened to value servicing for cars over a certain age

Re: SOLVED! - N13 Cold Start Rattle

What a simple solution.

Why doesn’t Bmw fit something like this anyway.

Is there any issue with fitting this and it causing an issue or failure?

Re: 2014 M135i - Centre Dash Buzz/Rattle

I had a very similar issue.

Noticed it after a cabin filter change.

Removed bottom panel under glove box and reinstalled and it cured it.

Drove me daft

Re: Driver window not going up properly

Cheers for the help.

I’m still in two minds what to do.

I can easily manage the replacements but it’s the warranty and what’s the problem exactly.

Re: Driver window not going up properly

I’ve asked on the part price already. I have extended warranty so trying to keep Bmw parts really. FRM? Is this the motor? I’m annoyed at bmw wanting to charge me for the diagnosis and then £250 excess. Last time I used the warranty it was just the excess and no diagnosis fee. If I do said job mysel...

Re: Driver window not going up properly

Right so today it’s done it again. How much are these replaced and fitted at Bmw? I’m absolutely furious they’re wanting to charge me £135 for an hours diagnosis on this too. The dealership have pissed me off if I am honest. Told me to drop it off but I can’t wait with the car because they’re unsure...

Driver window not going up properly

Drivers window goes down fine but when it goes up it moves an inch or so then stops and repeats this process.

You can hear the relay clicking on and off.

It’s only started recently so needs to be booked in but after any information before hand.

Re: Re mapping a 118i?

Thanks for the info. I live in West Yorkshire so does anyone know any good reputable remapping/ chipping company's near? The car is only a 1.5 turbo so would it still be worth doing? What sort of change in bhp and torque would I get if anyone knows? Thanks again Friend of mine uses unicorn motorspo...

Re: F20 Satnav Retrofit

Mines a 2015 unit and the Nav worked straight away with the emulator.

Is it greyed out on the menu or just not there at all?

Is the unit definitely a Nav unit?

Re: An easy way to remove number plate screw caps

I mean a tiny one. Or a pick.

I had to punch a hole in it and pry it off.

I have little patience though 😂
