Helloooooooooooo Ha finally I can post pics and say hello.

I have only been driving 7 years and have owned a Peugoet 208cc and an Astra SRi, both were ok (actually the 208 was pants) And considered the 135i before deciding on the 125i as it is naturally aspirated. Love this car so much and am very proud to be an owner of such a nice car and also proud to be part of this forum. Look forward to seeing and speaking to you guys in the future.

The day I bought my 125i - 22.8.13
And as she is today.

As of 11.8.15 -

And as of 20.10.15 VMR v710 with MPSS

Hey Twenny, I am sure you mention it earlier in your thread but can not seem to find it, what did you do about removing the fogs? Did you code them out, leave the fogs behind the bumper or fit resistors to fool the ECU?

I have removed one of the fogs from my E87 and trying to decide the easiest and most reversible approach. I have removed both fogs on the E81 for the BMWP bumper so at some point will also have to think of a long term solution to stop the warning coming up whenever I start the car. Cheers

Hello Jon - yes I removed lamps and coiled the holders up and tie wrapped them to the chassis. Then coded out voltage monitoring via Carly.
