    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    is there any reason I cant run a front 313 wheel 225/35/19 on the back? (back being 255/35/19). Thinking about using a spare one as a spare wheel. also could a pair be used with spacers instead of the 255 rear wheels which keep cracking?

    New to this forum, apologies if I have done something incorrect or missed some information! The dreaded dpf light came on on Sunday. Took my car to the mechanic who showed me the error code (4010 - exhaust back pressure sensor before particulate filter, signal) and advised me to buy the part...
  9. Dpf back pressure readings

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I noticed something when looking at the live ECU data on my car today, the exhaust back pressure under load at 4k revs is much greater than it is when you do the standard test with the car stationary. I had around 125pa under the normal test and saw over 460pa flat out in second gear. Does this...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Evening everyone I was last here back in 2014 with my E46 325Ci Sold that with 144k on for a Mk5 Golf GTI which was great fun but I missed the quality of BMW. So in June last year I bought a 2007 E92 M-Sport 325i N52 engine with a mere 19k on the clock. The car is like new. So I have nearly...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, just purchased a run around car which is a 2003 320d SE Auto on 115k. I bought it blind and drove it a few times to see what it needs doing. The idle is rough and makes the car shake / vibrate (more than a normal diesel!) and when coming to a stop the car sometimes feels close to stalling...

  18. Will an e63 m6 exhaust ( back boxes) fit a 645

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi can I swap out the back boxes on a 645 for a set from an m6? I have read that the bore is slightly bigger on the m6 exhaust, is this something that can be worked around?? My big concern is that people are saying that because I don’t have an m6 bumper then the pipes will stick out a mile at...
