  1. The Great Run-Flat v non Run-Flat Debate - Are RFTs improving?

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Ok so I'm a glass half full kinda guy and RFTs generally get a bad press but is this a hang over of the early days of RFTs? I'd like to stick with RFTs so as not to have to make additional provision in case of a puncture and in my mind the E90 range was designed specifically to run on RFTs so...
  2. Options for improving analogue Aux input on E83 X3

    Car Audio, ICE, Car Alarms, Mobile Phones, I-Drive
    Morning all! Just picked up a 2009 plate E83 X3 and figuring stuff out. It has the factory BT option but doesn't allow you to stream music as far as I can tell so I'm stuck with the 3.5mm jack in the stupid place as an input. I'm toying with the idea of using a cheap BT headphone adapter...
  3. E36 318ti improving handling

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi guys. Ive had my E36 318ti for a couple of weeks now and I'm looking for ways to improve the handling. I'm pretty sure its not the sport model (not sure how i can tell).

  4. Improving front indicators

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Almost got wiped out on a roundabout for the third time in as many weeks this morning. I don't think other drivers see the indicators on my 840 even though they are working fine. Has anybody had a similar experience. Can they be improved?
  5. Options for improving ride comfort on F10 530d?

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Recently, I bought a two year old F10 530d SE to replace my trusty E39 528i SE. The new car is obviously a major step forward in many ways but the ride comfort is not as good as on my old car. The tyre noise is also higher. The reasons are not hard to find. My new car has 18" alloys (8" wide at...
  6. 2000 E36/7 Z3 2.8 Improving the headlights

    BMW Z Series - Tech Talk Z1, Z3, Z4, Z8, Z9
    As I use my 2.8 as an everyday car and work shifts I have found that my new toy is a bit feeble in the headlight dept. Everything is working as it should and the aim is okay, just doesn't light the road on dipped beam like I would like (or like my old Focus used to). I've thought of upgrading...
