  1. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    So my 403M wheels are originally silver like this (don't look diamond cut because the silver paint matches the metal so closely): I could have chosen the anthracite (orbit grey?) version that isn't diamond cut, just powder coated all over but preferred silver on a black car myself...

    As per title, are the prop shaft universal joints maintainable on the E46, or is entire prop shaft replacement necessary? Realoem doesn't show part numbers for the two universal joints: RealOEM.com - Online BMW Parts Catalog Reason for asking is when I was last under the car (for exhaust...

    Hi BimmerForum Members.... I'm new here and recently sold an 8v Audi S3, for an E92 330d. Fuel is much better at 45mpg and to be honest I'm more than happy with the BMW over the Audi. However. I recently had my Wheels refurbished, all 4 and made a colour change, which I am beginning to think...

    Just bought an E90 sport which has the 194 alloys, a few questions arise and I wondered if someone could help me out with info. They don't look it but are they staggered? When produced, are these wheels sprayed, dipped or powder coated etc? I ask the second question as i want to refurb them...

  7. E36
    I had my E36 Evo SMG in storage for 6 years before I could finally afford to get it fixed up and back on the road. It was in need of new four new discs, four new tyres and a lot of other work, 3 grand in total, all on a car that had less than 60k miles on it. After all that was sorted, I...
  8. BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi Need to get my performance 269 alloy wheels refurbished. They have the black BMW performance lettering on them on the rim, which from what I can tell is a decal under the lacquer. Have been told by refurb place that they can't reinstate as they have tried before and the hot lacquer damages...

    Hi My E64 650i had a set of 19" M6 Replica wheels on it when I bought the car. I actually quite like them and they are in generally good condition and only a couple of years old. Despite that, the lacquer has milky marks where moisture has got underneath and I'm looking to have them...

    Hey all, I'm having some problems after getting my carb refurb'd (E30 316 87). When I'm driving at constant speed at low revs and then I go to accelerate the car kind shudders. If I do it when out of gear I can hear the revs briefly drop (1/4 second) before revving as it should normally. What...

  16. Auto Electrical Forum
    Having recently acquired an E61 (2008) beemer, the CCC it came with turned out to be faulty. Amazingly i convinced the dealer to sort it out. I now have a CCC unit 'spare'. It exhibits all the usual symptoms of lousy manufacture/design - ie works & then doesn't work then works again. highly...

    Looking to refurb my wheels this summer as they have had some poorly repaired kerb damage and was wondering if anyone has done them in gunmetal grey? The car is titanium silver and I think they may look good but not seen any to decide.

    Im in the process of restoring my 850i. The 17" alloys are in pretty bad shape with a lot of the paintwork flaking off/ grime and some light scuff marks. I'm wondering on the following options: 1) Get a local alloy wheel specialists to refurb and respray them at £308 plus VAT. 2) Attempt to...
