Have £4500 cash. If you know of such a car I’d really appreciate a message.
just thought I'd introduce myself as I'm new on here and new to BMW to actually. My 986 was not big enough so I had to get something more practical and had ideas of economy too for a change. I plumped for the 1 series because despite the odd looks, I like the engines and the handling...

Hey Guys, new here and was after some advice / help.
Monday this week i noticed a very loud rattling noise coming from under the bonnet.
This only happens when the car is warm, and put into drive or reverse at very low speeds. The noise stops once over say 5mph or sometimes as soon as you take...
My 123D (E87 2009 114k miles) is due an oil & filter change. At one stage, the oil specification was 10W-60, but it's now 0W-30. That is a huge difference.
I already have 4L of Castrol EDGE 5W-40 Oil and wanted to check if this would be Ok to use, especially as mileage is 114k?
2008 E82 123d Bilstein B14 Coilovers
I have a 123d M Sport which needs new shocks and springs. I thought I wold take this opportunity to fit some Coilovers.
After some research and reading through old threads I have decided to go for the Bilstein B14s.
What I want to know is if anybody...
Is there an easy way I can check if the swirl flaps on my 123D have already been removed without taking the manifold out completely?
Maybe using a borescope or something?
Do the 2008 April models even have them? Is there a source that would tell me?
I've scanned my car with th C110+ OBD scanner:
1 - It has a leaky injector which blew carbon and fuel EVERYWHERE. I've had a new injector put in, engine steam cleaned.
2 - It's got the chain noise
3 - Goes in to limp mode if I give it a good boot in 3rd gear over 70 mph (bot not...

Knocking Sound - Sendvid
When I have my car on idle it makes this knocking sound (idling at 800rpm roughly once a second) and changes as the car is revved more, but on revs about 1500 the engine drowns it out.
The sound is a bit louder at cold start
I am thinking of changing my 330ci for a 123d from around 2007-2008, as I am currently spending huge amounts of fuel.
Plus I would like something a bit newer as the 330 is 15 years old.
Are there any buying guides for them? I hear the camchain can be an issue, how much of a problem is this...
I've managed to somehow crack a rear wheel on my 123d, see below image (if it works?). It's an 18 inch, the tyre is a 245-35 if that's helpful..
Any advice or recommendation on where I could go to get one for a fair price much appreciated. Ideally around west london or not too far...
I'm trying to change the outer brake light bulb on my E87 coupe but just understand the fitting.
This is the bulb that is between the outside skin of the car and the boot lining and not the main light fixture which contain inner brake / reverse lights etc.
You access the fitting via a...
Hi, I was trying to change the outside brake light bulb, the one that's inside the rear panel of the car accessed via the boot and not the main light cluster.
I can reach in and turn the bulb holder as described in the user manual in one position it has some movement and in the other it feels...
I hope you're all well :)
I had my E82 123d M Sport for 3 months and the pedals offset has doomed my lower back....I retrofit a 3-cell lumbar support but unfortunately it didn'y help at all.
I was wondering if somebody could provide me with a comparison in the pedals offset between...
