    I recently bought some style 313 18" wheels to replace the 261 style on my 1er. I wanted them because they looked a lot better and that's it. However once I got my car back from Grayham Richardsons in Colchester I noticed it drove very differently. Less twitchy and less bumpy. I also had the...
  2. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi, just bought a 2006 e91 320d m sport. The key fob no longer locks the car, I don't know of it opens it as I can't lock it. Problem is the manual key doesn't lock the car either. However if you sit inside the car the panic lock button happily locks the car. I had a quick look at the fuses...
  3. BMW 4 Series - Tech Talk F32,F33,F36,F82,F83
    Got my 2016 gran coupe 435d with adaptive suspension yesterday and while it's a lovely car I found it rather boring to drive when I took it out yesterday. There is no sense of speed. I've come from a remaped 2008 325d touring which feels much more connected and feels faster even though it's not...
  4. BMW 4 Series - Tech Talk F32,F33,F36,F82,F83
    So I’ve had my f32 for coming up to 2 years now and am at that point where I’m looking to see what’s next. Having a little one, the coupe is not ideal, but is remarkably spacious in the back. I need rear doors and good boot space. I came from a 2.0t turbo petrol Audi TT which I loved then...

    Just back to the forum having previously owned a 528i SE Individual in the UK, now back home in NZ though. The Mrs had wanted a 120i for a while, when a black 2008 came up recently for a very good price we jumped at the price and bought it sight unsold. Went to collect it, wasn't quite as the...
  9. BMW Parts for Sale
    Hi All, Some of you may remember me from my e36 325i project thread; I spent a lot of time on that car / on these forums, but life moves on and I sold the car about a year ago. Anyway, I'm saying that as if you do remember my work, I think it's safe to say I like to do things properly :) With...
  10. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi Does anyone who how I can find out what the original tyre make and model would have been for a 2003 e46 325i MSport on style 135 MSport alloys? I had the same wheel on an e60 with run flats on it - Bridgestone Potenzas, but I don't think the e46 had run flats. I bought my e46 with two...

    My E61 530D has developed a tapping noise from the top end of the engine, and I am trying to work out what is causing it. It taps at half engine speed, so camshaft speed, it sounds similar to a slack tappet. I have heard that various things might be the cause, including a worn tappet, faulty...

    Does anyone know where this relay lives? I'm being plagued with the "christmas tree" effect on the dash with a multitude of errors intermittently being displayed. Having replaced both the alternator and battery the errors continue and after reading forum after forum I read that the main DME...
  14. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi guys, I've had my 340i for about six months and although I love the car I got a bit bored of the look. Although it was quick it looked like a company car and not my own. I've since had the side sils, m performance decals, rear spoiler and front splitter put on along with having the wing...

    Hi all, I'm new to BMW's and am hopefully purchasing one very soon! Just have a quick question.....which year did they change from the vacuum actuator on the turbo to electronic? From what I've read if the electronic actuator goes...whole new turbo. Many thanks. Ash
  17. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hello guys. I want to remap my 2006 730d but i dont want to remove the DPF or CAT. The only mod i can think of that might give a remap a few extra oomf is a 'slightly' larger intercooler. But on a diesel will this make any difference to gains compared to a remap alone? Cheers.
