Re: M140 almost stolen

While all this theft/burglary for cars is all very depressing I find it astonishing the amount of car owners and particularly ‘performance’ car owners that seem oblivious to what’s going on out there. This has been going on for 10+ years but people aren’t aware (or either they don’t think it will ha...

Re: Midpipe+MPE M135i

General driving is fine, a slight hum but sports mode sounds great and addictive.

Re: Service history on dash screen

Rear brake pads changed with new sensor.
Front pads are fine so I shorted the sensor and reset the warnings etc. All sorted.

Re: Service history on dash screen

Looks like I’ve dropped a bollock. Toggling through the menus attempting to view service records this morning, I’ve inadvertently pressed things that I shouldn’t have. The wife went to work in the car and has reported back that there is a Red warning (handbrake sign) light. Since she got home I’ve c...

Service history on dash screen

Is it possible to check the service history on the dash?
It’s got some history but I want to clarify it on the car.
It’s a 2009 116d Msport E87 without idrive.

3 button remote key fob

I need a spare 3 button remote key fob. The type that pushes into the dash rather than a traditional key type.
If I purchase a used one can it be coded to my car.
E87
