  2. 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...

  4. Reliability of Steptronic boxes and 125i engines for current car purchase

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    I have had two previous autos, an E46 330i saloon and an E46 B3 3.3 Alpina, both of which failed on me at around the 100k mark but which I eventually got to understand is fairly normal at that mileage unless the ATM fluid has been regularly refreshed every 50-60k miles? I've had several other...

    BMW ECU Tuning and Standalone Tuning
    Reposting as I think I posted in the wrong place... So, I have a G30 520d. Car is leased and new. For this reason, I dont want to do a proper remap as I know it will require drilling into ECU and will leave traces all over the place. And by traces I don't mean in case of a warranty claim, I...
  9. E39 auto boxes, really that bad?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I am on the hunt for an automatic BMW, especially an E39. I have read many reports on the net saying that the auto boxes break/give up between 80-150k and a cost of a recon one being around £1,200. Are the auto boxes really that bad? I have been looking at some 530d E39's as they are in my...
