    Hi. I have a BMW 320d 2007, non UK model , and the run flat warning has come on. The tyre has not gone down (the one that I think it is) and I want to check the tyre pressures and make sure they are ok. Problem is there is no sticking out valve, just a flat looking plate that looks like I...

    Hi guys, I need to pluck some brains if I may. I bought a E90 320d with a knackered engine, the former keeper believed that the turbo had picked up but when I got the head off I found that 2 of the injector nozzles had burnt away causing the pistons to burn up. So I put a second hand engine...

    I have an 2008 e82 135i and today I decided to wire in my dash cam and a boost gauge. I had wired up all the relevant connections to the "add a fuse's" I had bought and removed the fuses I had identified for them plugged them back in and thought I would test the dash cam before I routed all the...

    Hi guys I’d like to know what is recommended for non run flat tyre pressures. Has anyone else swapped them and knows? From my research +2 psi give or take? Specifically for my e82 135i but any help is really appreciated. Take care!

    I'm looking to buy a set of winter tyres/wheels for my F31. Main reason is we live in a cul-de-sac, car sits on a sloped drive and there is extreme camber/drop off either side of the small road itself. Last time we had a decent amount of snow (years back) my E91 was nigh on impossible to get off...

    I've heard various stories about run flat tyres and people saying they hate them. I've noticed that mine has these and I'm wondering what people find wrong with them. Thanks

    Hi My 2012 30d has been perfect for years until now, press the start button and she starts and runs for a few seconds, then sounds lumpy and dies, starts again straight away and then does the same over and over again. Maybe a fuel issue, possibly the pump, any suggestions or ideas please...

    Hi, I purchased an E90 not so long ago and I'm wondering whether it's possible to just replace my run flat tyres with standard tyres, without having to code anything? If so, will my sensors still work?

    I see from the handbook that if you use the canister of tyre sealant to inflate the tyre after a puncture it knackers the tyre pressure sensor electronics and they need to be replaced. Does anyone have any experience of this & is it expensive?

    Had anyone had any experience with these tyres? I’m due new tyres and I’m seeing the reviews are pretty good for them. My current tyres have lasted about 25k miles so don’t want to buy the falkens and they are done after 15k? Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    After changing my radiator fan and working out how to get the temp displaying on the dash, I've noticed the engine is getting up to 108° before the fan(1st stage) kicks in (whilst stationary) is this normal? and does anyone know at what the temp the 2nd stage should kick in? Thanks, Arti
