    Sorry for the images with the white section but I have to do it or they appear the wrong way up. The videos aren't displaying correctly, I think they need admin verification and even then I think there might be a limit on how many I can link for some reason? As promised, this is my how to guide...

    On Tuesday I am returning my 2009 330i for a refund due to it requiring new injectors. This is the 3rd 3 litre engined BMW in a row which has had its injectors fail. My question is, which year did BMW sort this problem out? Would a 2013 135i have reliable injectors? Thank you for your help

    Hi all, I’m new to the forum and the E92 world (first ever bmw) loving it :). Just a quick one, what is the best way to fix the seatbelt extension arm issue, it is only on the drivers side I think, occasionally it catches it but most of the time it just drops the belt beforehand. Thanks :)
