Re: Best/cheapest place to buy BBS Rim Protectors ?

As most of the marks are on the corners (where the light naturally bends/reflects anyway), I'd have a go at touching them up locally.

Worst case, they'll still need to be refurbished, and you'll own a touch-up stick for your new rims.

Re: M140i (5 month old) exhaust coating failing

They've never offered free MPE's for a little pitting, as far as I can recall.

You should be able to get some identical black tips if you kick up a fuss, but they wouldn't even give me identical chrome or brushed versions.

Re: Best/cheapest place to buy BBS Rim Protectors ?

£55 each is about right for the stainless rim protectors. Try searching eBay and eBay.de for the part number, you might get them a little cheaper. Remember to haggle for a multi-purchase, no need to pay four lots of postage. BBS Part number 09.34.251 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-BBS-Anfahrsch...

Yes, in the hidden background menu - assuming you own a BMW?

Re: M Performance Brake Disks

It's the unsprung weight that's the problem, one piece garbage adds a couple of pounds per corner. The rust is just annoying and unsightly.

If you don't care about performance it's a non-issue.

Re: Matt’s Road & Track m140

Ace, good work.

Wheel spacing is going to be key, you're going to want the 255 tyre almost brushing the damper. Minimal clearance, in order to get the LCA's on as well.

Can't wait to see her finished. :thumbs:

Re: M Performance Brake Disks

Genuine 2-Piece M-Lite brakes have an Aluminium 'bell', so shouldn't corrode. No need to paint the bell with hammerite, just polish them up to a high shine with Autosol. There is a very thin band/channel of cast iron material between the aluminium bell and the swept area you could paint if you reall...

Re: Please could someone help me?

LED requires more changes to the loom and FRM. High means the LED rears, with the bars which illuminate. What you're probably best doing is having both cars (pre-facelift & LCI) side by side. Buying random used parts and try to retrofit them would be a nightmare. I'd buy a 120i or 125i LCI as the do...
