    I'm in two minds whether or not to keep the BMW or sell/px and buy an Audi TT mk2. If I go for the TT mk2 it would just be a 2.0 TFSI FWD model. The reason they appeal is they are nippy, small, still offer decent luggage space and will allow me to fit my bike in the back. I don't do so many...

    I've seen little snippets of posts suggesting that simply replacing the receiver on the alarm module with the unit from a 3G Mk2 essentially means you have the "better" version without any wiring hassle. Is it actually possible, or am I better off looking for a good remote and receiver pair...

    If i arm or disarm my alarm it will lock and unlock the boot but not the doors, I need to replace the central locking actuator in the passengers door could this be the root of my alarm problem?

    Hi guys, having just got hold of a beautiful 318is last week Ive been determined to get it up to a decent level of spec before I get it out on the road. One thing it didnt come with was remote locking which I find most annoying, so I decided to go about fitting the standard 3G mk2 BMW alarm...
