Now I wish my car was white or black, I wonder if they do silver ones...

managed to do it on mine quite neatly, fill the holes withe epoxy resin that you mix up until its smooth then use a touch up pen or brush in your colour to cover the hole. Not going to be perfect but looks alot better

Re: 59 plate bmw 1 series ES, prone to engine chain failure?

Yeah I guess mate, thinking about it there’s going to be thousands not affected that you don’t hear from, besides knowing my luck I’d sell it for something else and the chain would snap on that.

Hi all

I am attempting to remove the manifold from my 123d - n47.

I have undone the 5 bolts on the manifold however the thing will not budge... not even the slightest.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Clock keeps resetting

Dodgy/flat battery only. The ECU is turning off non-essential circuits in an attempt to save the tiny bit of charge left, so you can (hopefully) start the car for the next journey. You'll probably find the heated rear screen demister is a bit crap currently, too. cheers Marco, :starwars: . Any reco...

Clock keeps resetting

Apologies if it been covered,

if the clock keeps resetting is it likely to be dodgy battery or could it be something else? usually does it couple times a week Id say now,

Re: 8" M double spoke 436M wheels on an E81 M sport

Yup, straight on, no issues. Make sure you don't over pay for 436m wheels. Yes, they come on M-Lites as standard, but they're nothing special at all. Cheers mate, happy new year by the way :) 650 potentially for a mint set with MPSS tyres with 7mm on each, would you say thats a good price? Also doe...

8" M double spoke 436M wheels on an E81 M sport

Apologies if this has been asked before, I'm sure it has but couldn't for the life of me find it

Front 225/40/ZR18 88Y - Rear 245/35/ZR18 92Y


Would the new style 436M wheels fit my E81 (2008) 1 series 120D without any issues? Currently has the 208M wheels on it,

Thanks guys
