    Hi Folks, I have recently curbed the diamond cut wheels that come on the M2 as standard. I had no idea how much of a pain getting them repaired is. I have been looking at alternative wheels for two reasons... 1. I need some to swap on while I get the curbed one fixed. 2. I live in city and...

    Hi all, As the title suggests, I'm thinking of swapping my beloved E46 for something a little larger and more suitable for towing long distance on holiday and as a practical family wagon around town. So far my shortlist is the following, which will all X3, a late 1st generation 3.0d (none SD...

    Are there any alternatives to the Hella oil pan sensor? The number on the sensor is: 6PR008 324-00 (I've also seen a 6PR 008 324-101 type - not sure if that's compatible to the original). I read that if you step away from the Hella one, it might not work properly? Thanks

    I have just bought a F30 which will be on 18" rims. I have a set of E90 16" rims. Would it be possible to use the 16" rims on the F30, for winter use, with a suitable tyre size? If so, what size tyres would be required? Maybe somebody knows of the existence of a comparability chart? Looking...

    Hello peeps. My 320d needs an oil change. Rather than using fully synthetic Long life oil, could I not just use normal oil? Reason is I tend to change my oil every 6 to 8 month anyway. Don't fancy a 35/40 quid bill every time I change. I've always been a believer of using cheaper oil but...

    Hi there. My Mrs has a 1 series convertible.Anyway I am wondering if there are many specialists out there as the cost at the main dealership seems ridiculous.

    Hi all, I'm looking about for a spare set of alloys for winter tyres when the time comes. Don't want to be spending a fortune, so planning on picking a set up on eBay or so. Do I have to stick with f30 wheels or will 5 series wheels fit? Not sure about offsets etc? I have 17s at the...

    Hello - I'm considering to skip the oil catch can install I did 20.000km ago (drawn in red on the picture below), and instead just cap off the intake boot and let the crankcase breather vapors exit, maybe through a hose away from the engine compartment (drawn in green on the picture below)...

    First thing I did was swap the BMW tape unit for a Becker indianapolis in red to match the dash... However as it gets older it's getting more temperamental reading and ejecting CDs. Has anyone found a suitable 'matching' headunit for the BMW E31 dash, which plays MP3s? No chrome, no metal, red...

    Hi Everyone. I hope all are well! First real issue I've had on my e92 335i since I bought it 18 months ago or so. After sliding out (slightly) on a roundabout I got the ABS/DSC warning lights come on which disappeared after I restarted the car. But then before long they popped up again and...
