  1. BMW Z Series - Tech Talk Z1, Z3, Z4, Z8, Z9
    Hi Folks, I recently (finally) bought my first Z4 after years of drooling over other peoples'. I have bought a 58 plate E85 which comes with the standard stereo. Having come from a Golf with a double din all singing all dancing head unit, I have been looking for a way to bring something similar...

    Who came up with this shit? I checked my exhaust over the weekend because it sounded like it was blowing on cold start only. Goes away when I apply even the tiniest bit of throttle and goes away after a 10ish seconds. While I was down there I checked for the vacuum valve mod. Sure enough it was...
  3. BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    Hi all, i did do a introduction thread, but just wanted to say hi to all the 6 series owners. I brought myself a 2005 650I coupe last week and am loving it. Was wondering what are some of the common mods that people are doing to their 6 series? At the moment on my shopping list is some black...
  4. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Looking into this, as I loved the mod on a few petrol powered vehicles in the past. Just trying to see if anyone else here with a diesel did this before, and how it was set up. I already know how to install a fan and controller, having done it before on petrols, but as I’m unfamiliar with the...

    Hi all, been a while My insurance is up for renewal soon and modified insurance is cheaper than non modified :confused To that end I want quotes for a full exhaust system, manifold to tailpipe, fabrication and installation. Most likely supply headers and CAT's my self, unless they can do it...

    I was wondering what sort of success people have had with this mod. I'm interested in knowing how long people have been using this mode for and if there has been any negative results. Also I'm curious as to BMW have to say about this issue. Clearly the M54 engine suffers from excessive oil...
  9. BMW Tuning Forum
    Evening All. I'm new to both BMW ownership and this forum, so please be gentle with me. Recently bought a 318ti from 1995. Loving the handling, but it only seems to have decent torque and pick up in a very narrow range of revs (around 4000). I've done a bit of research into ways to improve...

    Hi has anyone attempted a exhaust tip mod to their F30 320i (or similar)? I don’t want to change my stock exhaust, just want a more sporty look by clamping something on to the existing pipe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Probably pointless to some but has anyone capped the vac pipe from the engine bay instead of exhaust, I can't see why you'd want a vacuum running all the way to backbox then returning.

    Has anyone done this, and was it with it? Thinking of getting it done to my E93 with a decat?
  14. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I understand from stumbling across a YT video that it's possible to buy an aftermarket button to activate 'sport' mode on the E6x cars. It doesn't look difficult to fit and I've certainly done much more complicated things. However, is it a worthwhile investment (£20 I think for the kit) or...
  15. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Sorry if in the wrong forum Got myself a stock 335i and wanted to mod it so I can get some burbles/pops from the exhaust What is the best option to go for, I've requested a price from BMW for the performance exhaust so waiting for them to get back to me but I don't think it's available any...
  16. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hi all, does anyone know anywhere I can get the 2.5 oem exhaust mod for an e92 m3. There is a chap quite popular called Paul (PCW Pauls car welding) but he does not answer his phone or his messages at all. Any one know a shop, within 80 miles of london would be nice :)
  17. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    As in the title, is there any mods out there to perfectly secure the intake air hose that runs from the MAF to the turbo intake? The hose is pushed on but has nothing to secure it and it always comes loose. Can anyone suggest ideas besides clips as they dont work! i have thought about...

    I've just treated myself to some wheel nut covers for £4. They look ace, happier with them over most pricey gadgets I've bought. What simple and cheap mods has everyone done? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
