    Hi all, This might seem like a stupid question but I really don't know the answer so I don't want to assume anything. I'm looking at a set of used Pirelli P Zero tyres, they are the new ones that were launched this year. They came off a Jaguar, so their OE fitment is "J". Here comes the...

    Looking at buying both an EGR and main stat for my e60. BMW parts online sell the one EGR stat but the main stat is detailed as OE quality and seems cheaper than I as expecting. Thermostat E60 530d M57N2 11517805811 Is it worth searching out an OEM one instead of this? Are the genuine ones...

    My car has the dreadful cassette radio in it so I am considering upgrading to one of the OE fit larger units with the sat nav display. Will one of these just plug straight in or are there other issues such as codes etc. Also if I were to pick up a sat nav unit to go with it are the maps still...

    Hi All, any helpers please. I have a very rare (in the UK) Alpina D10 Bi Turbo. It has (what I believe it is called) the OE BMW professional sound system. If you want to turn the unit on you push the volume control turn-knob on the left hand side of the unit, and vice-versa to switch off...

    Hi, I've just bought an E36 M3 Coupe (pics to come soon), and it has a Sony aftermarket head unit fitted. Whilst it doesn't look awful, it certainly doesn't look original. I've had a look on eBay, and I can't seem to find any original items for sale. What head units came in the E36 M3 as...

    From looking at the manual, all E36 models came with an OE alarm system, My car only came with a manual key, no fob and it looks like the alarm siren has been removed. The sensors on the A-pillar are still there though. I really wanna be able to use the remote central locking, is it possible...
