  1. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I've decided to make the 8 a second car instead of a daily driver and want to have it off the road completely for winter. Using it as a daily driver means I can't do everything that needs doing, although the things that need doing are minor. So, for the longevity and preservation of the car I...

    Hello All, Hoping to be active here. Picked up my first 8 yesterday, '95 840ci metallic black. In basically sound order, but needs some light attention to keep things right for the future, so on the hunt for an 8 friendly garage and bodyshop around west London / home counties. ( I'm in...

    This is my first auto for many many years and I am after some advice. From what i understand this is a dual clutch type gearbox, essentially a robotised manual. Please correct me if I am wrong. When I stop in D there is creep. How is this achieved, is it slipping a clutch and if so is it doing...
  14. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Just about to get a 8 speed auto version of the 1 series with the paddles. I have a question over what mode to put the box in when at traffic lights or where a delay of 30 secs or more may occur. In manual, I have mostly done 1st with the clutch down and rarely change to neutral and I am not...

    A little treat for you. It's a really pretty car, can see a lot of Aston and old six series in it. The lights are amazing and the shape looks great. Not sure on the grille but overall a nice replacement. Sorry for the crappy pics, it was busy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi fellow 8ers, As I sometimes I have been known to browse the Autotrader and Piston Head adverts to see what's out their, it would seem the value of our cars is certainly on the rise in recent times. Not that I suppose it's an obvious would be car thief's choice to steal, then again not sure...

    I have the washer tank in the boot and seem to have an intermittent problem, which has just developed. The pump in the boot does not refill the tank under the bonnet. A couple of weeks ago I stipped out the water tank in the boot to sort out some rust-not sure if the two are related?. When the...
