    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hello, I don't post often as ownership of my N52 Pre-LCI 330i is largely going well. It's always struck me as a bit weak on acceleration and I put it down to being used to a boosted 3L TT from Toyota previously. Tonight I was replacing the NSF Headlight (Dipped) and had the airbox out to...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all, I need to get into my tailgate to sort this one - the rear wiper works fine but the washer seems to be pumping out the side of the spoiler - so I'm assuming the fluid tube has come adrift at the back of the jet nozzle. Has anyone had this before and if so, is it a major job? How do I go...
