    Hi I am new to the forum but hoping for a quick bit of advice. I bought a new 6 series GT yesterday. 20k miles on it. Rear pads were done by dealer 200 miles ago. L rear disc is completely clear. R rear has an inner area of rust that I assume is because the pad isn't touching. Dealer says he...

    As the title suggests, looking for some help choosing new pads for my big heavy 640d GC. I have decided to go for Zimmermann discs but struggling with pad choice. I have gloss black wheels and the OEM pad dust drives me mad. Lots of info on international / USA forums but not so much over here. I...

    Hi, Very hard to find for myself, these covers are located behind front discs, and i was looking for them without luck. If anyone has them sitting about unused, I will gladly buy em. (NOTE: As in descriotion only 535/540 fits)

    Long story short - dragging rear brake due to sticking piston caused a warped disc. I've fitted two new disks and and fitted new pads to the "good" side, rebuilt the caliper [inlc new piston] on the "bad" side with a kit from BigRed. All has gone great until I try to seat the rubber piston dust...

    I've just taken a look at both front struts and the "concertina" dust cover doesn;t reacj the spring seat - so I can see some of the damper rod exposed. This doesn't seem right to me - but lots of googled images show the same. If I pull the bottom edge down it slides away from the top. So the...

    ..noticed one of mine is hanging off at the back, tried putting it back in place but half of the foam bung thing that sits inside the top of the plastic shield itself has sheared off. Can you buy them separately? Or do they come with the shock? Either way doesn't look like too bad a DIY job...

    Hi all, Unusual problem on my E39 525d recently. Driving along as you do, when the daughter suddenly asks "what's all this dust?" Glancing across, I saw a cloud of what actually looked like smoke, coming out of the dash in the area where the glovebox meets the centre console. Pulled over...

    Hello, I've just changed discs and pads on the front of my e90 320d, during which I found the brake caliper dust boot which fits over the piston split slightly. I've put the brakes back together so I can drive the car and since found a new dust boot on ebay. Its a standard single piston brake...

    Hay all. Read up on this on the Internet with various sources. seen a few posts on here but looking for actual cases they have done it on the grounds of faulty components fitted in the 1st place? Or down do COSHH about the aluminium oxide. Thanks all.

    Hello All Having had my 8 checked over, I am working through the short list of items that need attention. One of them is the rear ball joint dust covers which are split. I am advised to ignore it and it should get through an MOT - as it did in May before I bought it. I was further advised by my...

    Has anyone experienced problems with the front disc dust shields? I just had mine removed after suffering a metallic scrape for weeks. The rivets had dropped out and the shields were rubbing against the fron hubs. one side worse than the other. I can really see what they do so had them removed...

    Hi Blithely ordered caliper repair kits for the front of my E46, but unlike other ones I've done the dust boot has a flexible metal ring inside the outer edge and pushes onto the caliper with a friction fit, no groove. I can't get it on! If I press one side with a screwdriver the other pops...

    I am quite pleased with myself so I though I would share with the group.:D I bought an old super king size duvet cover from some ebay guys who sell ex hotel bed clothes. I don't know who the hell would want one for a bed but it did arrive clean and pressed and once I had cut along the seams it...

    Howdy guys and gals, I have noticed that there are metal plates/guards behind my front breaks, I was just wondering if these were necessary? The passenger side on has obviously been broken at some point and bodged back on with cable ties so it rattles when the car is moving. I was just gonna...
  18. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I clean the motor and put her in the garage ready for a nice day and it is always covered in dust. Has anyone bought a decent dust cover from eBay or wherever? It doesn't need to be made to measure just something to drape over the car.
