  1. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I have a Becker traffic Pro fitted to my 840. I havent bothered with setting up the Sat Nav as I use waze on my phone, but I wanted something that looked OEM, but had a bit more functionality, so chose this head unit. The only issue was that the colour of the screen never quite matched the BMW...

  4. BMW 5 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E12
    I just recently picked up an E34 540i which is in pretty good overall condition except for the noise coming from the engine bay. Its entirely possible I've bought a dud but it was pretty cheap so I'm hoping this is a relatively straightforward fix! I've made a quick video to see if anyone is...
  5. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Ok folks, now i know some people aren't fond of diy paint jobs but as the car is 15 years old and only cost £700 i don't see it worthwhile being done pro as A. the cost imo is too much and B. i know someone who had his done by a reputable body shop only for the rust to return after 2 years. so...

  8. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Ive noticed over the last week or so i high pitch whine that matches the revs, i.e the more revs the louder the whine and the more high pitch, seems to be worse at around 1800rpm. The car is a 2006 320d with 80K on the clock. Its not the end of the world, but i obviously notice it more at low...
  9. BFuk Open Topic
    Wondering if some of you lovely people can help. I'm after some carpet that's the same colour and texture as the boot carpet in an e36. It doesn't have to be the super durable type with the rubberised backing, just the visible surface I'd like to match. Can anyone recommend places to buy this...
  10. General BMW Discussions
    I've started trying this recently at low speeds to see how smoothly I can change down. What I used to do was change gear and just bring the clutch up. I like the feeling of rev matching because you don't notice the changes but will this damage the engine or wear it out quicker?! I'm driving...
