Re: Intercooler advice

Only the BMW Performance FMIC you already know about. http://www.leebmann24.de/ladeluftkuhler-1er-17512179279.html 33% more cooling - BMWP vs Stock: http://img.tapatalk.com/d/12/12/30/typepe3y.jpg Would that intercooler be a straight swap on a 118d 2011 plate? No, the 118d is different (skinny litt...

Re: Brakes not sharp

Did you bleed correctly, using INPA to open the DSC Hydro unit for you?

Re: Aircon whiff

On my previous 1er I found one can wasn't enough. For my 2nd attempt I partitioned off the front of the cabin with towels and cardboard (don't want to waste the mist going in the back), and let 2 cans off, one after the other. That focused/intensive 20 minute treatment did the trick. A new cabin pol...

Re: New Owner Old Problems - 123d

Steering angle sensor, glow plug issue, DSC Hydro unit sensor, and a rear brake sensor.

None of that should cause a 50bhp Limp mode though.

Re: New Owner Old Problems - 123d

The brake warning light could just be the rear wear sensor. What does the mileage say on the rear brake CBS? --.-- ?

Not all reluctors are the same design, the better ones are built into the rear wheel bearings.

Re: New Owner Old Problems - 123d

71 is just the rear brake wear sensor, iirc. Replace and reset, and it should clear.

Are the rears definitely 45 profile?! Should be 35.

Re: M240i tyres

You don't have to replace in pairs, but it's considered a good idea unless the other one still has plenty of tread left. You wouldn't want one tyre doing something wildly different to the other in a wet emergency situation. If the other is worn but structurally sound, I'd keep it for a spare, you ne...

Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

You can stick with the standard tyres, or upgrade to 245/35/18 all round if (like me) you find the skinny fronts a bit melty under braking.

Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

Yes, the BBS rings stay put.

I can't recommend any, as I've only ever used the rings supplied with the wheels. I've never needed to look into replacements, sorry.

Re: Is this a COMBOX? 2010 125i Coupe

I believe that's your TCU, which controls stuff like Bluetooth, BMW Assist, etc.

Do you also have a MULF 2 under it?

Re: NEW BBS CH-R RIM PROTECTOR REMOVAL?

I didn't use any heat, carefully cold pulled. Heat is a good idea though. 17" or 18" is the sweet spot for ride/road-holding/handling. Get them from wherever is cheapest, they're usually around £1,400 new, plus sensors, tyres and balancing. Mine will be for sale at some point, keep an eye on the Cla...

Re: 120d Xdrive judder

Without looking I don't know unfortunately. I just had a look at the tyre sizes this afternoon after reading the post. It is a 2013 120d x-drive m-sport. Has the standard m-sport wheels. I suspect they're 8" rears then. If that is the case, you can't balloon a 255/35 on (245mm max), but a 225/40/18...

Can I replace the rear tyres with 225/40/18 to match the front wheels or due to the width do I need to order 255/35/18 Pirelli P7.
What width wheels do you have? Are the rears 8" or 8.5" wide?
