Re: Bilstein B14 vs B6 good watch

Then there is the consensus that the progressive springs actually reduce body roll rather than the linear springs that theoretically don’t. I can’t remember exactly why. Something to do with if you go around a right hand corner, the left spring will compress but the right of the car will not lift u...

Re: Bilstein B14 vs B6 good watch

Thanks for the reply. So basically what your saying is the spring rate is continuous regardless of preloading if the spring. It will always be 200lb per every inch of compression. So what I can’t understand is. If wanting to upgrade the stock suspension to one that’s better quality and more complia...

Re: Bilstein B14 vs B6 good watch

So from what he is saying it looks to me that the ride height of the b14 at its highest setting would be the same as a b8 damper.? Not seen any confirmation of this elsewhere. It looks like that would be the case in the body part, but of course the B14 comes with its own springs, which would change...

Bilstein B14 vs B6 good watch

Spotted this on YouTube earlier and found it an interesting watch. Shows the differences between the two units and also some interesting stuff about the Bilstein spring design. It also shows why I much prefer mono tube dampers to the more common twin tube variety. Note the big diameter part of the d...

Re: M140i hot climate intake mod

A while since I did it, but it wasn’t difficult, just a little fiddly. From memory, loosen jubilee clip on turbo pipe. Hard tug on air box to release it from the rubber bungs. Pull the snorkel pipe out and remove the old end rubber piece. Remove left hand grille. Remove blanking plate. Feed new rubb...

M140i stage 1 Evolve Automotive

All dyno’s vary and so many things can give false readings, some deliberate and some not. Ive used evolve before and there a really decent company to deal with. Also worth bearing in mind that a lot of tuners are using exactly the same software to map cars anyway, its just brought from someone else...

Re: Bmw apps

Yes, it’s pretty good.

You can send destinations to the car, my favourite. As well as see how much fuel/ range you have left, lock the car, see where it is, etc.

Re: No Air con and 2 coolant tank confusion

Don’t drive it.

You’ll be running the electric pump dry, which will destroy it.

Re: M140i stage 1 Evolve Automotive

Your trace looks very similar to my Stage 1 BM3 tune. So you have a decent safe power level map.

Re: M140i stage 1 Evolveautomotive

The pull it has in sport is definitely noticeable, I just expected more I guess considering the stock run was 362hp. But who knows [emoji2375] Im going to fill up with v power and take for a second opinion. My car is 18 so don’t know if that’s pre OPF... I had a back box delete and mod by EMP A whi...

Re: M140i stage 1 Evolveautomotive

Makes me glad I went the BM3 route. 421hp on stage 1 with Tesco 99. £42 more and I get to flash stage 2 for an additional 15-20hp. This is one of the problem with tuners. I’ve gone to many dyno days where punters have shown up keen to see what the latest tune was putting out, often to find out it pr...

F21 Brake pad replacement and jacking questions

For Brembo brakes... Use a proper pin punch. If tight, an Allen key won’t be easy to use. I give the whole caliper a spray down with brake cleaner. Be careful, the paint flakes off easily if you hit the calipers. You’ll need to press the pistons back into the calipers to allow the thicker new pads i...
