    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    I have a e88 I have recently been doing some work on a faulty actuator, it looks like it’s led to a faulty alarm, the alarm won’t set when I lock doors, I’m not sure whether it’s down to me having door panels off as they contain a inclination alarm antenna on the e88. Is there any sort of reset...

    I wonder if the good people here can help me (and my neighbours') sanity? After a period of being laid up while I was out of work I'm now readying my 840 for a new MoT and treating it to new tyres, wheel refurb and one or two other items to make it legit again. Anyway, to cut to the chase I'm...
