    Auto Electrical Forum
    Hey guys, I've recently been upgrading some of the lights in my 116i and wanted to change the angel eyes to a nice and bright white. I'd looked at some videos and saw that people swapped out the H8 bulb (which is a H7 bulb in the pre-LCI car) for a white one, and that made the angel eyes...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    I think the actuator is dying/dead on the car, and for some weird reason the connecting arm between the actuator and turbo has popped off. Stuck it back on and got the standard fault codes and an actuator that didn't seem to really want to move. I think the variable vanes on the turbo were not...

  15. E90 (Pre-LCI) rear spoiler

    BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    Hi all Amongst other things I want to get a a spoiler for the rear of my car. It's a sport model and I think the little spoiler is perfectly subtle and suits the design. The one that attaches to the rear edge of the boot - not the thin one that sits on top of the boot (which I think better...

    BMW Detailing, Bodywork and Styling forum
    Hi all, Simply, I have a silver 08 325d and am thinking of changing the grill. Lots of black ones out there but for me the black suits darker colours better by 'disappearing' more than the contrasting chrome. But also importantly, 4 cylinder cars have black slats whilst 6 cylinder cars have...

    Thought I might have finally cracked it but it would appear not. I've a 56plate pre-LCI 520d that has developed a tendency to surge in power under acceleration. Basically feels like I'm lifting off the accelerator then going back on it ever second or so. Bits I've done so far: DPF gutted EGR...
