  1. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I have a new F31 335d which came with 225/40/R19 front and 255/35/R19 rear wheels/ tyres and will be looking to fit winter wheels/ tyres in late October. I happen to have a spare set of winter wheels/ tyres from an F07 530GT in the shed, all four of which are 245/50/R18, are in great condition...
  2. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I'm looking to get a 335d touring in the near future but I prefer the look of the 345i's tailpipes or even the E90 335d's to the F31 335d's. Can you just swap the back boxes over or is it more complicated than that? (ignoring the rear diffuser differences)

  4. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hello all, I have found the car that I want, and it's a 318i manual, however I'm a bit of a "bitch" and I much prefer automatics, but finding a rot free version of the car I want has made me toy with a conversion. Beyond the obvious mechanical swap, any issues people know of? Is there any...

    A lot of former 1M-owners and now the owners of a M2, have asked us to also produce a Casing in the 1M-desgn. We produce it in 2 models, alcantara (like the 1M) and leather. Compare the two:

    Every year as winter approaches I remind myself that diesels run cooler than petrols and that this affects heater output to the detriment of the occupants. I cannot remember the last time that the thermostat was replaced on this car. The needle on the temperature gauge when warm moves just into...

    Is there any quick way of changing the on board computer from miles to kms? It doesn't seem possible in the hidden menu, and some people are saying it's a dealer job? Thanks.

    Hey All, Hope we're all well. My trusty 2002 318ti is getting a bit tired. Its developed some ... idiosyncrasies ... Its got to the point where should anything major go, it's just not financially worth it to fix. Sad times. Time for it to go to the great race track in the sky. I'm starting...

    I've seen little snippets of posts suggesting that simply replacing the receiver on the alarm module with the unit from a 3G Mk2 essentially means you have the "better" version without any wiring hassle. Is it actually possible, or am I better off looking for a good remote and receiver pair...

    Hi Guys My 320i decided to rough idle when starting cold last week, it was shaking like a leaf and dropping revs. No dash lights came on. when accelerating it felt sluggish and sounded "bubbly" After 5 mins it felt fine. Later in the day i fired it up again and after 2 mins of badly idling...
  13. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hello friends! I am new on this forum and I apologise for being total newbie in matter of BMW and mechanics (and sorry if I posted this in wrong category). I got a problem while working on my stroker E36 M50B20 (1992). I am not sure what if I understand correctly calculations I was trying to...
  14. BMW Engine Conversions
    Basically I'm currently running a m50b20 in my 1993 e34 and I'm looking to change my engine in the near future. I've found an m50b25 from an e36 for sale, which comes with the loom and the gearbox. I'm fairly new to engine swaps but am I right in thinking that this should be a direct swap? Is...

    Hello and good morning everyone! I'm new to this forum and it's my first thread, so please be understanding :) A friend of mine wants to scrap his BMW e46 318i Saloon from 2002. He told me that I can take any parts I need from his car. I've got BMW e46 318Ci Coupe, year 2000. My question is...

    Will a performance exhaust manifold throw a CEL on the e90? The engine is a strangled n46b20 engine that needs to breathe a little better. The thought was full manifold -> back exhaust just to get it a little more crispy + a kn airfilter mod.

    I have an oil leak on my e46 316 ti es so I decided to put about 1 liter of oil in the engine without checking the levels. I had covered about 3000 miles since I last did it so stupidly put oil in the car without checking. I have overfilled the engine, not hugely but it has caused the car to...
  19. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I have recently bought a 2008/57 320d approved used car with low mileage 20k. Drove it for literally 2 days and experienced noticable in cabin vibrations at Low speeds/sitting idle/clutch bite point (not a judder) and on a full right steering lock. Then the engine management light started...
