    Hi all, I had the dreaded self levelling suspension error for a week or so. It was not a problem until I jacked the front end up for another issue, and the back was very low down after I let the front down. It was so low down, that it was not really driveable. First of all came the diagnosis...
  7. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Howdy folks. Fresh mot yesterday, a whole 52 miles since the last one. First up it was noted that the o/s main beam is constantly re levelling, parked up against my garage to check in the dark and it's defiantly doing it constantly. Can anyone offer any thoughts? Many thanks

    I've just bought a ridiculously well specced 330d M-sport for a bargain price, it's just gone through an MOT without advisories and I plan to enjoy it for a while then sell it on for a profit.

    Hi, The Xenon headlights on my 2003 E39 touring don't appear to be working correctly. When I switch the lights on, they dip slightly then rise again, but not to the correct height so the headlamps are always pointing too low. As we are now approaching the darker evenings I would appreciate any...
