Re: UK Dash Cameras - subscribed?

This happened before the windscreen incident. Im queuing patiently in that lane and the fuck-wit in the Audi just barges in to my lane, no indication, hand out the window or flashing lights to say thanks/ sorry. Damn right Im blasting my horn at him! I hate these type of drivers who think they have...

Re: Pssssssst GPF....

:starwars: As above Big Swede should have some results next week from dyno, until then hold off on all the negatives with PPF. My car has it and it still feels epic for me! I'll be stunned and a little miffed if it down on either torque or power :lol: The trusty bum dyno doesn't think there is any ...

Re: New car advice

It does seem really strange to me that people in their low twenties in age even consider getting performance/ expensive cars until they are much more set up in life. I had a very very boring car history until I bought my first flat and only then bought a 14 plate m135i second hand. Whatever he does ...

Re: Best fuse to piggyback for dashcam

FYI if installing via the 12v socket under the glove box, it means that parking mode can't be used.

With regards to blackvue, the power magic pro box is also required for the camera to working in parking mode.

Re: M135i Servicing Query

Just to give an update on this... I ended up going to BMW Chigwell who quoted me £518 for major service, vehicle check and MOT. That was with me bringing my own oil and spark plugs. They've given me back around ~1.5l of oil and the car was slightly late in being finished, as a result they gave £45 o...

Re: Anyone know this 235i for sale? Thoughts please.

Sounds expensive to me. I know the 235i’s are more than M135i’s but I bought my 135 from BMW over a year ago. It’s a 14 plate and had 26k on the clock. I paid 20k then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I'd agree with this. i bought mine a year a go with 24k on the clock, all the options and age i...

Re: Best suspension mods

I'd be intrigued to know how this works out day to day. I personally wouldn't would to go firmer with my m135i running standard non-adaptive suspension.

Re: Aircon whiff

Bad smells sounds like the activated carbon filter gone off, with mould build up on the evaporator you usually get a damp smell. I've seen this countless times over the years in the workshop, when they get bad they smell like rotten eggs! The activated filter is usually factory fitted and only real...

Did you have any luck with this? I’ve got the same with mine, wondering the best course of action.
