Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Fitted a new drivers side window regulator after the existing one decided to fall apart. Took me around 3 hours to get the old one out as the gear shape allen head bolts holding the glass in had both been rounded off. Had to dismantle the regulator in the door so that I could reach the bolts with a ...

Re: Cabriolet 120d m sport radio upgrade

I know that you can get a double din head unit to fit and this is probably the route that i will take but I was looking at the all in one android units like this https://www.erisin.com/erisin-es3740b-7-hd-android-71-car-dvd-player-audio-gps-navigation-system-dab-wifi-for-bmw-e81-e82-e87-e88_p920.htm...

Re: Cabriolet 120d m sport radio upgrade

I have considered doing this as well but there are so many options I decided to not bother.

I wanted a head unit that fitted flush like the OEM one but they all seemed to overhang a little bit.

Do you have any pics of yours?

Re: Kidney Grille Replacement.

I replaced mine recently for black grills and they just pulled out from the front. It needed a fair bit of force and a wiggle but they came loose without doing any damage.

I was advised to try this by a paint detailer that I know and it worked :D

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

As a newbie what’s noticeable about the switch from run flats? I’ve got 4 virtually brand new Potenza’s on the 1er as it was from a main dealer but don’t know if these are run flats or not and reluctant to change them unless there’s significant benefits. The most noticeable differences seem to be b...

Re: Pads & Discs

I normally get weekly emails from gsf giving up to 60% online prices which normally saves a fair bit over ECP prices.

All you need to do is subscribe to their emails.

Re: Kidney Grills

I just bought a pair of black grills for my E81 MSport from Cotswold BMW and they were around £48 including delivery.

They were very helpful and delivery was quick so I would definitely use them again.

No winter tyres. Decided to leave it on the street and walked home after getting stuck in the middle of the road. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180117/98094ac7abb7819b4405e47ecbe2617c.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Did you park it there as an excuse to take that picture [emoji3] Sent f...

Re: E81 window issues

I was thinking that it may be the motor as there is no noise when I press the button.

I would have thought that if it was the regulator I would still hear the motor turning????

E81 window issues

There have been a few people recently having issues with windows due to the frost. I had the same issue a few days ago and the window reset worked for a couple of days but now the window doesn't move at all. Is this likely to be the motor or just a fuse blown? If it is likely to be a fuse what fuse ...

Re: 1st time 1er buyer

Wow I like your thinking lol I’m thinking of an M2 <heads out to roll the car> Congrats on the new car. Red looks great as long as you keep on top of it and a nice polish and wax twice a year. Loads of nice subtle mods (as I’m sure you’ve extensively read) so any help just ask and we’ll do our best...
