Re: Which decat

This is the second time you've said this... why would you declare it when it invalidates your insurance immediately from doing so ? That's ridiculous.. I'm merely expressing a view on a forum - twice. In which you give poor advice.. telling someone to declare something that will invalidate their in...

Re: 2014 M135i - Centre Dash Buzz/Rattle

Hello folks, I have not long purchased a low mileage, BMW-serviced M135i 5dr Auto in VO with a good spec. Love the car to bits but unfortunately the experience is blighted somewhat by an intermittent rattling seemingly coming from behind the central heater vents. It only really happens on rougher s...

Re: 1 new tyre? 2 new tyres? 4 new tyres?

Personally I would change both the rears, that way you are always going to have roughly the same depth of tread each side, fronts have more than enough on for awhile

Re: Chargepipes and Tuning

any good guides on install Unfortunately the Forge one never came with any instructions, there’s a few 335i N55 vids on YouTube but I couldn’t find any 135i ones, i got a garage to do it, they charged me an hour for labour, it’s advisable to pick up a new Oring as well, reuse the original clips tha...

Re: Time to move on from the m135i ?

I get a smile or two everyday in mine, It can be civilised when needed, then turns into a beast when called for, admittedly there’s better cars out there, but that’ll always be the case, went out in a mates AMG45 the other day, apart from the rear diffuser wasn’t really that impressed with it.

Re: Stock Pads vs M4 Pads vs Yellow Stuff Pads

I picked up some brembo ones from euros, £170 for both axles, bedded in now and they work great, as for stamping on the brakes, the only time I’d want to do that is in an emergency.

Re: Chargepipes and Tuning

I've got the MHD initial loader installed but still running the stock tune just with cold start delete. Hardware wise I've just got a decat downpipe and modified rear silencer and now looking into flashing one of their OTS maps on. I hear that the chargepipes are notorious for giving way when tuned...

Re: MPSS Tyres replace or ride them out

Well. My opinion is. They ain't gonna grip with 8mm either. It won't make any difference hardly. In snow you have no chance either way. On ice you have no chance either way... In dry and cold it's all to do with the compound so won't make any difference. In wet it will make a differencebut worth th...

Re: Castrol Edge 0w30 suitable for m140i?

Better to go with Aral SuperTronic 0W-40 LL04 Brilliant oil and it's the number one seller in Germany! I got it cheaper than the Castrol stuff too. Castrol has been known to cause issues with excessive engine noise. How come bmw recommend Castrol oil? If it causes problems? Pretty sure all of my la...
