Just fitted black kidney grills. The car now also has a few bits of my knuckles under there!

No idea.

Can’t pin point what the noise is.

There’s like a knocking coming from the front as well - not loud but loud enough to be annoying & that’s even over a smooth surface (but when the road like dips up and down)

Tyres are getting replaced tomorrow...currently the rears look like Brillo pads haha!

Once I’ve had them replaced I’ll evaluate the noise. Next step is to replace the front top mounts.

After that not too sure.

I think I will give them ago. The car is on 70k now so will need probs need a refresh.

I had BMWirral check it over but they told me they couldn’t find anything wrong with it. I don’t think they bothered looking tbh which was annoying considering the service & brake fluid change cost a fair bit.

Mine has just ticked over 70k too. Turns on any kind of camber produce a rather irritating groan or knock dependant on speed.

New front/rear brake pads & new front discs last week. Then refurbed wheels & new Pilot Sport 4 tyres all round today:

Then as it's such a nice evening, went for a blast:

Essentially what mine needs. My refurb hasn't gone to plan though and they'll likely be redone.

Your links appear broken (on tapatalk anyway). Look forward to seeing them though.

Oh, they seem to work fine on the main site.

Got the wheels done at We Restore Alloys in Kirkcaldy (I see you're in Glasgow), would fully recommend them 👍

Logged in via my browser and can see them fine. Look good mate!

I went for ferric grey on my 208m's and for some reason the paint just keeps reacting to heat. Painter has been great to be fair, think I'll just end up going for a different colour powder coat which should set fine.

Broke it! EML light CC-ID 29 So could be anything engine related.

Tucked back up in garage until dealer can look at it on Tuesday.

After the 700 miles motorway miles i have done this week having to injure the noise and sometimes scary tramlining, the run flats had to go. Ordered some Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3's from Protyre and had them fitted at Micheldever tyres this morning. Whilst they are not the quietist there is a significant improvement over the run flats.

For those who know the area, It was also a good excuse to take "that" humpback bridge outside Kings Worthy at slightly more than the speed limit :lol:

Knocked the guts out of the CDV on the 1M today - did it on the 130i and again can't really feel much difference, maybe a little better clutch feel/control but I suspect it's more a case of wanting to feel an improvement after getting getting a sleeve full of brake fluid, twice.
Set of PS4S's on all round - they feel very good!
Also cleaned it, been a while since I owned a black car - forgot what a massive pain in the ass it is to keep it looking good after the silver 130.
Current: 130i & 1M
