    Looking to buy my first BMW - a 1.6L is all I can afford to run petrol and insurance wise. I've been drawn to the 2008 3dr 116i SE because of its looks, features and the sporty nature of a 3dr.

    My front wipers skip the first speed setting, but only when I'm moving - when parked they work as expected with no issues. The relay is good, surely this must be the switch playing up? Any ideas?

    Hi all, one of my injectors decided to spring a leak today. Just wanted to know if it’s a diy job? I’ve done a bit of research but haven’t been able to find videos with my exact engine. Some people are mentioning coding the injectors, is that something I would have to do? Thanks
