Re: Maxton design splitters on standard m sport kit

That's a huge help thanks.

So are the 3 and 5 door side skirts the same shape? Do you think I should get the pre lci sides for my 5 door?

Re: Modified car insurance

Thought I'd just add to this and give a shout out / thanks to Adrian Flux. I've had an unmodified 120d MSport for a year now and have been itching to do some bits to it (nothing major, full maxton lip kit, M135i exhaust conversion and aftermarket wheels). I'm due for renewal of insurance in 2 weeks,...

Re: F20 exhaust material question?

Don't worry guys. I've managed to source a 135 box cheap and local so it's a simple case of a stepped sleeve adaptor and cut old one off, bolt new one on. No welding needed anymore.

Sidelight monitor cancelling - carly

Hi all, just got Carly and doing a few mods (start in eco, reverse puddle lights, 5 blink lane shift etc...) and I've been cancelling the bulb monitor for my LED replacement fogs and dip beam. I don't seem to be able to see a cancel for the sidelights? Theres high beam, low beam, fogs and DRL's, but...

Most comfortable lowering springs 120d

Hi guys. I've got a 120d m sport f20 on standard setup. I have no desire to rip a lap record round the nurburgring and simply want a better stance and decent drop with as comfortable / soft as possible ride. Purely aesthetic. There are pages of threads on here about various suspension setup conversa...

M135i and m140i back boxes

Looking at a dual exit mod for my 120d. Are the m135i and m140i back boxes identical in size and configuration? Ie are hangers the same, pipe connection and exit pipes all in the same place? I ask as there seem to be more 140 back boxes available than 135s so might be easier to pick up a 140 if it w...

Re: F20 exhaust material question?

Yeah my hunch is it's stainless of some grade but I can't tell what for sure.

Re: F20 exhaust material question?

There's several options yes, I'm just weighing up the cheapest way. I could: 1) open the existing exhaust and weld on a second branch inside the back box to exit on the right side. 2) try to weld a second branch externally on the existing back box to exit on the right side. 3) cut off the back box a...

F20 exhaust material question?

Hi, does anyone know the exact material used on the 120d F20 stock exhaust? Looking to do a M135i split exit modification and the £300 powerflow want to cut off the back box and clamp on a split piece of pipe seems a ridiculous amount to me. So, you can get all the pieces readily online to DIY it fo...
