130i this weekend:
Oil filter housing and oil cooler gaskets - top tip, empty your coolant header tank using a turkey baster, this drops coolant level below the gaskets so no messy coolant loss when you realeae the housing.
New aux belt and tensioner.
Treat a few slightly rusty areas in engine bay with ACF-50
Current: 130i & 1M

Items to arrive in the post today for my 130i.

Cabin/Pollen Filter & new window wipers.

ECP had 50% off sale (May75 discount code if anyone’s is interested) so thought I’d just purchase them since I don’t think the wipers have ever been replaced ever.

Will fit them at some point this week

I’ve also just spent about half an hour trying to unblock my rear wiper washer. Didn’t work. Cba.

My Mini has the same issue, don’t bother using the rear wiper anyway.

Replaced rear left brake caliper - old one binding badly.
That’s all of them done in the past 18 months.

My advice - do them all when the first one goes if you can, saves hassle and paying a premium for parts when you’re in a fix.

Good service (next day delivery) and price from brakeparts.co.uk

My rear caliper is binding sometimes...so I’m going to have to do this soon.

How much did you end up paying?
