    General BMW Discussions
    Hi and thanks for comingm into this thread to help me before I hang a rope up! :mad: I've had quite a few BMWs now and this is propably going to be the last one. Its a 2007 318i N46 engine with 80k on the clock. Its pumping out white smoke (with a hint of blue) and the coolant is pressurising...

  3. Can i get an acceptable E46 for £2000-£3000?

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi, joined here to do some research and ask a few questions. I currently own a Vauxhall Astra G which is woefully slow, boring to drive and is starting to show its age. I've considered a lot of cars but over on PH forums they all seems to suggest a 3 series BMW for the power and fun to drive and...
  4. Are these KDS measurements acceptable

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Or should I go back to the dealer? I'm new to this site (first bmw forum I've registered on) so firstly, evening all! I had my e46 four wheel aligned at a BMW dealer about a month ago and looking at the printout tonight, it got me thinking, was it actually done correctly as there are two red...
  5. 2001 E46 330i 'acceptable' oil consumption

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Have been reading many threads on various forums about how much oil the M54 engines get through and am just wondering how others are fairing to compare with me? The BMW user manual says oil consumption will vary greatly depending on driving style (obvious I know). Well mine has just consumed...
  6. 2008 E60, are refurbished wheels acceptable from approved used BMW?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Had the car just over 2 weeks and noticed today that 2 of the wheels (19'' spiders) are obviously refurbished and paint is starting to flake off. Is this acceptable coming from BMW? Also the centre caps are really manky! Thoughts? Cheers. Neil..
  7. 2004 E46 325ti - wheel refurb.. is a bright colour acceptable?

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I'm going to refurb my alloys soon ready for the summer.. This isn't my preference but I can't afford a set of BBS RS-GT reps until next year so no other option (leaving them boring silver is not an option! :lol) Now my first thought was to spray them white.. then I thought maybe go for...
  8. 1992 E35 325 - Acceptable tyre sizes for the same alloy?

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi all, I was wondering how much can your tyres differ from the originals, and still work properly? For example, you have 18" rims with 225/45 tyres. Can you fit 205/45 instead? Or 255/35? What is the acceptable margin? (if any)
  9. Should swearing be acceptable in Bimmerforums Open Topic forum?

    BFuk Open Topic
    As above guys.. seeing as some of you have been moaning about the 'no swearing' forum rules (without asterisking a letter from the word..like t*at) I have posted a poll to see the true feelings of the forum :hihi Also, if you DO think swearing should be allowed? are you including even the most...
