    I hope someone can offer some advise because this has me stumped. I recently purchased a Sony MEX2400BT radio, I also purchased a harness which allowed me to keep the steering wheel controls so I can use it hands free. I installed them no problem but after 40 minutes of the ignition being...

    Well, my local garage did. What a great mod. The car feels much lighter and agile now. In sport mode it pulls a lot quicker yet it's not screaming it's tits off at high speed. Perfectly balanced for this car. I highly recommend this mod for the 8, gives it a bit of vitality.:D Roy

    I'm looking to buy a car cover for my E92 as the trees on my street shed some kind of "hair-like" debris and I end up washing it every few days. Does anyone have a cover and know whether it would still fit with a low-profile roof rack (Thule wingbar) as I also don't want to have to take this...

    Hi guys, A little while ago I installed a lip spoiler on my F32 428 which had been wrapped in carbon vinyl. It's been installed with 3M tape and is stuck pretty damn good. The other day I noticed the carbon vinyl seems to have leaked/blown as there are patches in the vinyl itself. I plan to...

    After a fair amount of faff I've finally managed to code the newly installed AUX cable to the car. Here's a photo of the finished article. I chose to fit the AUX Input high up near the idrive screen so I can reach my phone without taking my hand off the wheel and also not have a long AUX cable...
