Re: M135i coolant level?

Yes, that's the one, you can sort-of see it in your photo.

Does look 1/2" low.

Re: Coolant overflow pipe

That's a new one.

I call that one an expansion hose, rather than overflow. You're wise not to start the car until after it's fixed. :thumbs:

Re: OEM radiator guard

You need new radiator mounts as well as the guards, the guards clip into the later mounts.

Re: Service Items

Anything that's passed LL04 should be fine. I prefer a 0w*0 oil if available, 0w30 LL04 or 0w40 LL04.

Re: Engine splutter when cold

Is your air intake standard? Some aftermarket filters are known to cause them to run lean around 2,000 rev/min

Re: F20 spring compressors

1) Undo top mount nut
2) Jack car up until the spring is loose and untentioned.
3) Remove wheel, then top mount
4) Wind the spring around and around, up and out of the wing.

Re: F20 spring compressors

You don't actually need spring compressors if you're a bit cunning, you can use the vehicle's bodyweight instead.

Re: Service Items

I'd want to be able to make up 6 litres of G48, so I'd go a 2 x 1.5L of neat coolant, and 3L of pure water.

I don't know what specs Dexos2 are, but my last purchase was rated ACEA C3, BMW Longlife-04, and GM Dexos2.

Re: just a quicky

A gear oil change never hurts, I change my gearbox oil every 33k (and differential oil every 25k).

Re: Nissan 400Z anyone?

I like it from every angle, colour me impressed. Fingers crossed it's sensibly priced.
