Re: 220d Convertible MSport folding mirror issue (another one!)

2017 car is still under warranty so why not let a dealer fix it?

Re: E82 135i Window Issues

How old is the battery? IIRC, when the battery is on it's way out one of the signs can be issues with the windows. Not sure, I'd have to check through the history. The passenger window and sunroof are unaffected, so I'm skeptical it would be the battery but will check. When my battery was on its la...

Re: New M135i Aisin vs ZF in M140i

Aisin is part-owned by Toyota so I wonder if that influenced BMW's choice given their co-operation on the Z4/Supra. I guess gear changes can be manipulated by software to create a different feel if needed.

Re: Yet another M135i 'review'

Interesting that Evo said "All in all, the chassis outperforms the engine by some way. In this respect it feels ripe for a touch of engine tuning to get that balance more harmonious." Kinda the opposite view of most keen owners of the M140i.

Re: N47 118d DPF Delete

Could lead to an MOT fail if they spot its been removed or fails emission/smoke tests.

Re: Revs Clock Stuck??

Phew! Thought I was having a 'blonde moment' and missing something obvious as I didn't see what the problem was either. OP, what happens to the rev counter when you press the loud pedal (Accelerator) with the engine running?

Re: 118d cigarette port not working even after fuse replacement

You could try the adapter & cable in another car to rule it out.

Re: 118d cigarette port not working even after fuse replacement

The under armrest power socket stopped charging my phone last week. So I initially thought. But then tried with a different USB cable with the same adapter and it worked fine. So just a faulty cable.

Re: BMW 118d manual

If you've always had BMW diesels its possible you've already had some first hand experience of the N47 engine as it was fitted to many different models. I am not really familiar with BMW's 4pot petrol engines. I don't think they suffer the catastrophic failures like the N47 diesel but, from threads ...

Re: BMW 118d manual

Late 2014 I believe or perhaps early 2015 by the time they reached showrooms. Think it coincided with the LCI update.

Re: Blower weak and doesn’t work at idle

By removing some trim I think you should be able to see if the fan is working or not. There used to be a guide in the 'How To' section. viewtopic.php?t=58150

Re: BMW 118d manual

The diesel engine timing chain problem arose with the introduction of the N47 engine in 2007. The early engines were the most affected and 2007/8 engines were the subject of a limited recall (Quality Enhancement in BMW-speak) in 2015. Whilst newer N47 engines appear less prone to the issue BMW never...
