    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    My wife finds the tailgate heavy to handle so I looked for a way of automating it. Obviously the cost of a BM retro-fit would be inconceivable even if they would do it. Got the local garage to fit one of these for me. Total cost just under £600. No connection to the product other than a very...

  6. wynns oil valve lifter vs stp oil treatment - why one thin but one thick?

    BMW Tuning Forum
    Dear All, I was quite surprised to see on a youtube video someone fixing their tapping lifters with stp oil treatment, because it was clearly a very thick oil , it seemed to behave like honey!
