    Because I’m constantly reading up on cars, I discovered the new Mini Cooper S weighs in heavier than the E36 325i/M3, with 1 pony less under the hood too. Owning an E36 325i Coupe myself I had to blog about it.

    i'M after some advice. After driving through a pot hole filled with water my car stopped & won't restart. It has spark, but no power to the fuel pump. When we put power directly to the pump it wants to start but just won't. I'm thinking a DME issue as it seems the fuel pump relays do not have...

    Having struggled to find a 3L I've expanded my horizons to also include an Evo and I really am struggling to find a good one! All I want is a straight one with good history, no vanos problem or any of the other known problems and for around £6k. I'd even take one with a vanos problem if I could...

    Hi guys, just after a bit of guide to the above. Whatever the solution is must include the ABS warning light remaining off. I can't stand driving with warnings on, even if I know it's fine. Reason for removal: it goes completely mental when you spin, refuses to slow the car down and tries to...
