I've not used it for this use but kitty litter is very absorbent and cheap
Great idea, I love good value solutions.

I've never touched the stuff (no pets), is it dusty? Could you wrap some inside a newspaper or bath towel to save making a mess?

Just change the oil, leave the filter alone.

Re: Tyre and Rim size check

I'm running 8" ET40 245mm fronts. Sorry to reply so late Marco, but do you have a picture of how it looks? Is your car also lowered? I’m about to order a set and am worrying if I should go 235/35/19 or 245/30/19. I assume you have a 18” tyre? How is your fender and suspension leg clearance with bot...

Re: Are all dealers this booked up?

They are busy currently, I've experienced the same.

Lots of cars registered on the 1st of March means lots of servicing also rolls around exactly 24 and 36 months later; brake fluid, MOT, oil services timing out, etc. Car's start their Service warning countdowns at the beginning of Feb.

Re: Air con oil

R134a air con top-up gas contains some oil, which is how it gets in there. Don't think you can add any otherwise as it's a pressurised system.

Re: Most Stolen cars of 2018

I'm a little confused on the meaning of keyless entry. My last car, a Mercedes, could be opened as long as the key was present, so presumably the key was constantly transmitting. The key of my current car, an M240i. has to be pressed to unlock the car. Am I right in thinking that the M240i key is m...

Re: M135i EWG

EWG gets a bigger turbo exit, 3.5" vs 3".

Give better breathing, slightly more power (about 6bhp so pretty negligible), and better for tuning too.

Have you read the model year differences in the M-Lite FAQ Sticky?

Re: F20 Carpet wet - advice on lifting please

After you've finished the strip-dry-rebuild, I wonder if a pack or two of these would be a good idea for the coming weeks? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Babz-5-x-Interior-Dehumidifiers/dp/B00SYPLWIW/ref=sr_1_5 I'd leave them for 6 weeks in the passenger side or in the boot, so they couldn't roll under yo...
