    Sorry for the images with the white section but I have to do it or they appear the wrong way up. The videos aren't displaying correctly, I think they need admin verification and even then I think there might be a limit on how many I can link for some reason? As promised, this is my how to guide...

    Hi all, I wanted a cheap method of wirelessly using my phone in the car. First mod was a bluetooth receiver. The second part was wirelessly charging the phone. My 630i (E63) has the generic phone snap-in tray, but nothing available for a Samsung S7. Instead, I bought a DIY wireless charging...

    I was interested to see if anyone has modified the box that the ECU is housed in? I have recently had my ECU fail due to water filling the box and the rubber valve failing and not letting water out (Luckily seeing BWChiptune this weekend for a new one :thumbsup). I got rid of the valve but...

    I am not getting on well with the clutch in my newly acquired car, and think its because of the clutch delay valve. From reading through various threads, i see that the options are to either just remove the CDV and rejoin the 2 pipes, or buy a "passthrough" valve that looks like the CDV, but im...
  12. Diagnostic Hardware and Software Discussion forum
    To read codes on my former cars, I was always able to borrow someone else's equipment, but I would like to have my own ready when and where I need it. So I got myself one of those Chinese sets of Carsoft cables and software, got it running properly. On my 12/'00 320i I've been unable to connect...

    Hi Guys, First thread I've created so hoping you can give me a push in the right direction. After saving for a while I've finally decided to hopefully get myself a second hand 630i if I can find one in my price range with decent miles (under 90k and Full Service History). :hyper I've been...

    Hi all I was browsing through the old internet and came across all of these JDM people who are putting the "rising sun" on the rocker covers of their show cars. I also have heard of a guy, in Bristol, that has it on his Mitsu Galant. Now being the creative person that I am, I keep thinking...

    What do you reckon to cutting the trumpet off that leads to the airbox inside the corrugated bit to aid airflow into engine? It looks quite restrictive!

    Hi folks. I heard it is possible to modify the EGR valve with a 2p piece with an 8mm hole drilled in it to prevent the EML coming on. Has anyone done this? Did it make much difference to performance or MPG?
