This weekend i did a Coolant change and Oil service on the 130i and then had a set of 4 new Michelin PS4 tyres fitted.

Next weekend I will hopefully have time to fit the new Bilstein B12 Pro Kit i have all built up with new top mounts etc sitting in the garage. :D

So much for not spending money on it this month! :lol:

Must be the angle as they look like they’re over the door and wing.

Hah! It does look like it. They do go pretty far back, right to the edge of the wing

Hi,
I've recently joined this forum hoping to get some advice on my BMW 1 series as the mechanics don't know what the fault is.. as it was initially thought to be a misfire.
The car was showing drive train error on the dashboard so after taking it to a garage they said it could be the coils or the spark plugs or both. After connecting it to a machine the results were clear and car wasn't showing any fault so the mechanic decided to change all the spark plugs. The message on the dashboard has now gone.
My issue is that I keep hearing a crackling noise on the drivers side (like sparks almost) and I find this worrying. It was doing this even before the mechanic changed the spark plus.
Also, when I accelerate and go to higher speeds in higher gears the car begins to judder.

Any suggestions welcome.
I'm a lady owner with very little knowledge on cars.

It's best to raise a separate topic for this sort of thing.

What model/engine do you have? (if it's a diesel it won't have spark plugs....)

Today I discovered that my ABS and horn work perfectly, courtesy of a clown who didn't know what lane he wanted to be in approaching a roundabout, nor, apparently, how his mirrors work :shock: :shock: :shock:

I’ve fitted a black rear valance/diffuser that I had purchased from Ian (The Tyrant) recently. Some people may think it’s too much black, but I’ve never understood why BMW gave the M Sport models the big plastic bit on their bumpers, and it’s a big improvement on the tatty plastidip I had on my old one.

I don’t think the blacked out boot badge helps the look.

Looks good apart from that.
