Re: 118d Intercooler Upgrade

My question would be, why bother? Diesels don't produce the heat like petrol's, so unless your changing turbos and things as well, then its pointless. That specification on the car will be deigned to work in environments MUCH hotter than the UK. So the head room is pretty damn big. I'm currently ru...

Re: N47 Timing chain RECALL

The problem is the original tensioner was too short. I went into this in detail with BMW when my car was fixed. The tensioner runs out of enough tension at the end of its travel and this causes the chain to stretch so they made it longer. The top chain goes first and then the bottom one. A loose ch...

Re: BMWhat

What option do you use to disable the monitoring of the front side lights. I have set them up as DRL's but I have some powerful Osran LED lamps that are not canbus friendly that I want to fit. I keep looking at the side marker monitoring but it doesn't sound right. Same osram led here. Disable Ange...

Wing chip repair - what to do?

Touch up paint. Enough to raise the repair above the rest of the paint. After hardening, wet sand (grit 2000) easy and steady. Finish off with a polish.

It Will be a superb result.

N47 Timing chain RECALL

Only upper chain replaced. Unless middle chain shows too much slack.

My car has just been thru this.

If upper chain is ok. You have you car back within the hour.

If upper chain needs replacing, and middle chain wear must be inspected. Its another Day.

Dealer broke off the OBD port...

As subj. the grease monkey broke off the OBD port while the car was in for a new timing chain. Funny was that they didnt bother to mention it to me, probably thinking that i would never notice..... Idiots. Any way, i confronted the dealer with the issue. They complained and will ofcourse fix it at n...
