  5. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hey Folks For the year I've owned the car, I've looked at flaps that basically close off the front grill. Searching revealed they are part of some "active aerodynamics" doofer. I don't think mine open, in fact, they actually feel like they are seized shut. I dunno whether my car should have...

    Hi all, I've just bought an aerodynamics splitter for my e46 compact for £80 (dunno if that's a good price or not). My question, has anybody fitted his splitter to their compact and does anybody know what needs to be done in order to get it to fit? I believe I have to modify the lower grille...

    Also in this months Top Gear is an article on Aerodynamics, the outcome being is it is a very exact science and anything except perfection makes the car much worse. The consensus was unless you had an advance degree in the subject and access to a wind tunnel, you are definitely going to make...
  10. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Hi guys. Just got my 840, and initial impression is that it gets a little ... well, light on the road I guess ... at high speeds. I still have the limiter in place, so 250 km/h is as fast as I've tried. At this speed it started to feel as I said, a little light. Its not a major thing, but...

    Hello all, I was just wondering if anyone knew if it is still possible to get the aerodynamics kit for the E46 compact? I just mean the one that includes a front splitter, side skirts and a rear apron. Does anyone know where to get one of these from? and how much are they? any information would...
