Re: Front bumper and Headlights

I don't do PM's.

If it's for an E82, you might need the E82 ducts, etc?

Re: Front bumper and Headlights

You don't need new headlights/bonnet/wings, but all the air ducts and brake ducts will need changing. You might need an engine undertray extension too.

Re: Is this paint peel normal?

Yup, that area is actually over-spray, not paintwork.

Re: daily driver - cant make my mind up!

M135i / M235i / 335i / 435i / N55 135i, all good.

228i is well worth a test drive too, slightly less poke but a lighter nose for a more nimble car. A surprisingly nice drive.

Re: ABS & Flat Tyre Monitor Warning

Make sure you're rolling when scanning for live codes, I doubt it will flag one if sat stationary.

Re: ABS & Flat Tyre Monitor Warning

I'd start by checking all your ABS sensors.

This thread might help a little, but I think the rings are slightly different on a 130i? viewtopic.php?f=3&t=104230

Re: 2 year Service - Engine Oil Service Or Engine Oil Service and microfilter?

Yup, includes Pollen Microfilter, should be roughly £300.

Re: BMW N47 Race Clutch

Agreed, you're probably going to need 123d gearbox, 123d prop, 123d Diff, 123d brakes....

Re: E87 - N47 Engine Knocking

Yup.

Obviously doesn't work if it is a runaway though, as turning off the diesel does nothing. In that specific case you need to stall the engine if you can, or if that fails, pull a charge pipe off very quickly.

Re: E87 - N47 Engine Knocking

Yup, that's knocking well. :(

If the rev's rose all by themselves (no accelerator), it sounds like a 'runaway diesel'. That's caused by the engine running on a mist of engine oil (rather than diesel oil), usually caused by a leaky turbo seal.

Re: Rear squeak

Silicon grease should be rubber-safe, a better option than WD40 in my opinion.

I'd start with the anti-roll bar bushes, that's just a metal rod twisting in two dry rubber blocks, squeak!
