Ditch the Runcraps, fit some nice Michelin PS4 XL's, job jobbed. Load index needs to be 92 or higher.
Have just done exactly this, wish I hadn’t waited for so long!

Re: Advise on fitting Maxton Splitter please....

I have bought the eBay Maxton lookalike kit. Fitted the front splitter using self tappers. Did it on my own which was awkward, but raising the front up and then using packers to hold the splitter up to the bumper helped. Mark your centre point out and fix there first, as long as that’s right the res...

Re: Bluespark Tuning Box

I’m pretty sure it’s not related to traction control. I find that I notice it most when squeezing the accelerator rather than stamping down, in a higher gear from say 50-70mph. Which would suggest to me it’s the gearbox not liking the extra torque and limiting the power. It’s a lot more harsh than h...

This weeks project complete!

Is this the stuff you bought? http://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-accessories/exterior-styling/richbrook-carbon-fibre-sheet-24cm-x-38cm Never seen genuine carbon fibre wrap before and it isn’t too badly priced either. It’s usually just a printed vinyl. Also, where is this LCI2 cup holder from? Sent...

Re: M140i/M135i LCI - Rear Diffuser - Group Buy

I did mine off the ground without lifting it up, a few effs and jeffs but its possible. Mines lowered too for an added bonus lol Thanks mate. Would you describe it as fairly easy? Sounds like I may be swearing!! It was just the push in clips on both sides that had me swearing, trying to get them ou...

Re: Lowering & headlight issue!!

Anybody know what could be making my headlights point down when accelerating/cornering? They come back up after a second but it’s annoying and potentially dangerous on dark country lanes!

I would have liked it a little lower all round to be honest but it does drive well.
Anyone got any measurements on standard springs?

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180121/e3ae568f4805d32405a1e54416ee6d84.jpg I’m running the Eibach Pro Kit. Will the shorter bumps drop the rear down a bit more? I’d quite like another few mm down at the back but don’t want to have to buy a set of Motech Eibachs as I’ve only just had the Pro kit...

Re: Eventful time getting car coded

Just get an adapter and BimmerCode, you can’t really go wrong and most of the options you want to change are on there.

Re: Eibach Motech or H&R Springs

I'm on Eibach rear springs with stock bumps. My Rear arch height is 353mm (from centre of roundel to apex of arch), so still quite high. I do quite fancy trying some shorter rear bump-stops, BMW part number 33536859769 Will the shorter bumps drop the rear down a bit more? I’d quite like another few...
