    Hi Guys,
    Having recently got a 318i touring and already having found useful info on this site (when my crankshaft sensor gave up and my daughter managed to break first aid kit door off) I thought I had better sign up then I can continue to pick your brains and also offer solutions to some problems If I can.
    If I keep loosing my back end in the rain (17inchers and new tyres), am I doing something wrong or is it just BMW fun????

    Welcome to the forum.

    Are your tyres a quality brand? ,bushes in good nick etc? and rear wheel drive does take getting used too.

    Best off powering out of roundabouts a bit later than front wheel drive

    Try it with a 328/m3 in the rain much fun

    welcome mate, if your tyres are ok then welcome to the fun world of rwd, your first aid kit is under the passenger seat right, i paid 12 quid off cotswold bmw for a replacement, sounds like your enjoying your ride, what have you come from and is the bm better

    Cheers pal, coming from a 407 diesel (dont laugh wifes choice, traded both in!!) the bm is superior in every way - even the rwd fun factor.
    The first aid box just slid out from under the seat after pressing its release button and i foung it was the door hinges that had all broken, however the door opener is that good quality I have found that when clicked in and pressed down it stays in place and doesent even try to come loose.
