  1. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hello! I am new to the forum and have an issue with my m3e36 3.2 on the (everything is stock) rear ride height. I know from the TIS that it should be 540mm. Problem is the bottom of the rim to the top of the tyre is like ~540mm. The rim is 17inch and I have standard tyres (245/45/17)! I have...
  2. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hi all, I'm trying to figure out whether replacing run-flats with normal tyres would materially improve ride quality. F11 on 18-inch star-marked tyres. The car goes over speed bumps quite well, but I can feel all imperfections in the road at both low and higher speeds. Is it the tyres or the...

    Hi, Im new to this forum and i looking for your help. I have a problem with my f11 for a while now and cant find a way to fix it. The gap between the offside rear wheel and the wheel arch is much bigger then the nearside. I got ista+ 2 weeks ago and tried to do the ride height calibration...

    I tried a G30 M-Sport recently and thought it rode rather nicely so I thought the SE I tried a week later would float along even better over drain covers and cats eyes, but I was a bit disappointed that it didn't seem to. Should it be obviously smoother on SE suspension or are the differences...

    Hi everyone. I'm new here on these forums. After several years of Volkswagen ownership. I bought a BMW F31 320d Xdrive M sport touring. I really like driving the car except it's very uncomfortable and also it's given me a bad back despite driving in comfort mode. I've tried various seat...

  10. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hi ! I bought an ES 320d a couple years ago..skip to the end..the hard ride is taking its toll. Options; I could sell, though it's lost half its value. I could move to somewhere where the roads are made of butter. Or.. softer suspension. Currently have all factory fitted, normal stuff for a...

  13. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, Like many F11 owners, I have been suffering from rear suspension issues - one side keeps deflating and the other is way too high like an X5! Before you say it, "No" it's not an air bag issue. This is absolutely fine. When pumped up via Inpa or Ista, it can stay up for weeks (driven a few...

    I have recently bought a 2011 X5 with 17 inch wheels with run flats. Will I get a softer ride by replacing the tyres with non run flats?
  15. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, I have an e46 330ci Clubsport SMG for the last few years, and the suspension is pretty tired at this stage. The steering wheel rattles when I go over speedbumps leading me to believe the top mounts are on the way out (I've replaced the rear front wishbone bushes a few times and made no...

  17. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, Since changing my 19" rims with 18" rims with winter tyres a few weeks ago (used these rims before without isuses), I noticed that the offside rear ride height was low. A year earlier the air spring was replaced on the nearside due to a split in the rubber, so I immediately put it down to a...
  18. BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    Just a bit of an update - heard a clunking noise at the front and it was clear the front right shock was giving up the ghost. After much deliberation finally ordered the Bilstein B6 shocks and in for a penny etc - decided to replace the springs at the same time with Mtech OEM's. The fronts took...
