    Hi, I have a manual gearbox 2008 120D model at 45k miles. It always had a rattling timing chain since I bought it at 22k miles but I was completely unaware of this notorious issue when I bought the car second hand 4 years ago. The car runs perfectly fine and I always disregarded the rattling...

    I have a 1 series F20 116i 2012 and when the engine is at running temperature there is a rumble/grinding noise when I hit around 2000-2500 rpm. I can accelerate through this and it goes about but happens through each gear at the same engine speed. It does feel like I have a slight lack of power...

    My front wipers skip the first speed setting, but only when I'm moving - when parked they work as expected with no issues. The relay is good, surely this must be the switch playing up? Any ideas?

    Hi all, one of my injectors decided to spring a leak today. Just wanted to know if it’s a diy job? I’ve done a bit of research but haven’t been able to find videos with my exact engine. Some people are mentioning coding the injectors, is that something I would have to do? Thanks

    First post here so I'm not sure if this is under the right section. Not a huge petrolhead so looking for an answer to this query.
