when buying roof bars for the flush mounted lci roof rails do i search f31 bars and fittings?
any links to the best/cheapest supplier for a set then will take the thule freeride bike carrier - i assume ill need the adapters if they are the aero rail type??
Maybe someone can help me.
I have a 2006 E91 318i touring, the seller threw in a set of roof bars.
The roof bars are marked E91 but they don't seem to fit! The "feet" that grip below the bars don't come low enough, it's as if the hex bolts holding them on are too short & can't unscrew far...
In case anyone's interested, my gift to myself this Christmas was a pair of H&R anti-roll bars for the 650.
They're much more chunky than the originals. Straight out of the box the difference in weight is remarkable, and they really highlight how flexible the originals are (and in my case...
I'm giving up on the e90 318i I've been trying to enjoy. As much as I love the looks and comfort, its been the worst car for breaking down that I've ever owned. So many oil leaks and general component failures I've hardly had time to enjoy it. What's worrying is the amount of similar cars for...
I need to remove the crank to get it my favourite machine shop and see if it's scrap or regrindable ? So I need to remove the balance bars.
Does anyone who has done it have any advice ? Is it even doable by a DIYer ? I've bought the TIS software, haven't checked what's involved yet though. I...
Can anyone recommend some roof bars for my 2010 E91?
I don't really want them on all the time due to wind noise so need them to be easy to remove and fit. Not carrying anything majorly heavy, just bits and bobs and maybe a roof box when we drive to France later in the year. I assume I have the...
BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
I have had a look through the forum and have couldn't find anything about this so wondered if any of you had had experience.
I have an E46 320d SE facelift and I'm thinking about uprating the anti-roll bars and leaving everything else as it is. The idea behind is reduce roll without...
Can you help with this amateur mistake please?
I've just taken collection of a 65 plate series 1. With it I purchased the genuine roofbars but I've stripped them down for powder coating (don't like silver). He lies the problem - the ends that attached to the vehicle. Two are labelled...
Just bought some BMW OEM roof bars for E91 (old version with gap under the rails).
Where do you use to lash onto them?? I wanted some eye bolts but can't find anywhere to bolt them to. Do the Thule eye bolts fit the aluminium profile?
Also, has anyone unscrewed the allen screw from the end...
Front and rear anti-roll bars removed from my 2002 330Ci M-Sport.
24mm front and 18mm rear bars. Front bar has poly bushes on it, rear has standard bushes.
Average used condition, but could probably look nearly new with a sand and a coat of paint.
Would be a good upgrade if you e46 has...
My "new" 330d is in need of roof bars (2010 E91 with the non-flush roof rails).
My question is about the feet and how well they match the profile of the rails.
Thule's feet are common to many cars, and so I would imagine they do not match the shape of the BMW roof rails exactly?
