    Hi all, My car recently in for the heater unit recall and BMW noted that the driver side is badly leaking. I have since had it on a ramp and it is pretty bad. I'm surprised it got through the MOT a few weeks before the recall..... BMW have quoted £288.00 per front E90 M Sport shock (inc. bump...

    So I have got myself a second hand 2010 e87 118d for two reasons, firstly because I have always loved the looks and secondly as a project. It had been reasonably looked after by the original owner and apart from a strange problem with the a/c (I have a separate thread in the e87 forum about...

    Just got my annual, over-priced, maintenance book rubber stamp today at BMW (oil service). They informed me that I have a leaking front shock. When I plug the part number (31316768923) into eBay I'm surprised to see so few offerings. Vast majority are Bilstein. Couple of questions: 1) any...

    I have an E46 330D 2004 and the history includes an old receipt for 8741 1390LSPOR dampers. It's now time to replace them, but looking at images of this model online it's not clear how to fit the inserts; the units include the spring support and a side bracket below (no bottom bracket as they...

    I'm about to throw some Eibach pro-kit springs on the front and rear. The rears are a good pair of Sachs that are to spec, they're only three months old. However, the fronts are still BMW original from when the car was new. I'm thinking I should probably swap them out while I'm doing the...

    So I'm going to change my shocks and struts and also all 4 springs on my 325ci with sport suspension. I've decided to use Koni FSD shocks and struts and was wondering if I should use Eibach Prokit springs or just use stock sport springs knowing that I want my Konis to last for as long as...
