Re: Boot rattle

Can we substitute electrical tape with something else? I live in a pretty hot country and electrical tape becomes gooey pretty quickly in the sun.... My 135i has just come back from BMW for the third time for this same issue. They seem to have wrapped a fabric tape around the lock - it's black so y...

Re: Blue caliper paint code?

I bought some B05 Monte Carlo Blue from QuikTouch - haven't applied but looks close. Thought i'd phone them to try and get an official answer out of interest!

Re: Blue caliper paint code?

In the middle of an ongoing saga with BMW customer service. Lady i'm speaking to has been in touch with product marketing and the initial response was to replace the caliper (not going to happen). She's apparently been looking at other options and thats as far as we seem to be getting. Twice weekly ...

Re: Registration plate price?

Thanks Joe - Will look at getting a touch up stick

I did call BMW today - (3 dealers and their main customer services team) and asked them and nobody knew what the colour was - they only body colours and not calipers as they are powder coated. Going to keep trying

Re: Blue caliper paint code?

sorry to revive this thread back from the almost dead! Did anyone establish whether the paint code was B45 Estoril or B05 Monte Carlo? Just realised i've got a pretty big chip on on of the calipers - I've ordered paint before from Quik Touch and their Ferric Grey for the alloys seems to be pretty go...

Re: Retrofit 12v power supply in boot

Yeah i did have a look at that thread although wasnt quite sure how to connect the cable, assuming i was to connect to an existing power socket? Im guessing i'll just have to buy the parts and see if they fit, but i wouldnt have thought the cutouts would be there for anything else Sent from my iPhon...

Retrofit 12v power supply in boot

As part of my ongoing plans, i've decided to add a dashcam to the rear of the car in addition to the front (which will be installed in the next couple of weeks or so) I've found that i don't have a power supply in the boot (I don't have Extended Storage), and so I'm looking at going about a retrofit...

Re: OEM Dashcam

I called up my dealer a couple of days ago for some parts re my dashcam install plans, and was recommended this.

Was told £270ish for the kit (front and rear camera, wiring kit and instructions) or £70 for the rear, although i don't think you can use the rear on it's own.

Re: Rear parcel shelf question

I'll go out and check mine in a second - but I think i have two. No buzzing (apart from the annoying creaky boot lid) but do you ever get a judder from the boot lid hitting the stoppers when your closing the boot - it seems to make closing the boot lid a little bit jumpy? Yup going over bumps or ve...

Re: Sport Modes - What is the difference?

Pushing the stick over to the left puts the box it sports mode. Press the selector from comfort to sport changes the throttle response, makes the box hold on to gears and weights the steering. Also firms the dampers if you have adaptive. They can both be used separately or together for full on atta...

Sport Modes - What is the difference?

Been looking around for a little while now and cant seem to find a unanimous answer to the below. What is the difference between the Sport mode selected under driving modes (Eco Pro, Comfort etc.), and the Sport mode selected when the stick is pushed to the left in the auto box (M/S mode)? If there ...
