    Hi guys, I have just bought a 05 535d that has a few “ issues “ It has no power under 3k revs and some kind of fuel/oil leak onto the exhaust but knew that when I bought it. Basically a garage told the guy that I bought it off that the small turbo was shot without looking at it at all and just...

    Have you noticed that protruding notch around the base of the brake pedal at the roof of the footwell? The distance from the floor to the edge of this notch is just under the length of size 12 shoe. So, what happens when driving in office shoes with a stiff sole? When coming to the lights and...

    I have a 2009 635d coupe (sports edition) It has the rare genuine bbs BMW 20” rims fitted. However I think these are not the original wheels that it left the factory on and they was probably added at a later date by a previous owner as a preferred option for the car. But although the wheels are...

    Hi, I'm looking to fitting a M52B28 in a kit car. Space is tight so I've been looking for an engine cross-section (I guess a M50/52/54 would work) with key dimensions so I can measure up properly. Can't remember where but I have only been able to find the following: Front to back of engine =...

    Has anyone ever fitted 245 40 17 rears instead of the 255 40 17 standard fit on the rear of an e90? Surely there can't be much difference, there is an 8mm height difference according to an online tyre calculator

    Hi folks. I did some research on what the minimum size wheels I would need for my car. The consensus is 18 inch if you have the blue msport calipers which I do. Also found that the bmw x1 wheels fit the f31. On that basis I bought a set of second hand 18 inch wheels with winter tyres fitted...

    Hi. Just changed from a 2010 to 2011 1 series and the mirrors on the newer car are much smaller. Can I simply bolt on the bigger mirrors if I purchase from eBay? Not bothered if they won’t fold electronically or tilt when reversing, just like the bigger mirrors for viewing. Cheers

    Internet says 36mm but when I went to change today though neither had large enough bit or tape measure with me, I had a 32mm spanner which seemed just a tad too small, so 36mm seems to large, car is 1999 and stored 20 miles away so can't just nip out and measure So what do I buy? Sent from...

    When I purchased my 320d (many years ago) it had 225/50 R16 tyres all round, fitted to style 136 alloy wheels. Whenever tyres have required replacement I've asked for 225/50 R16 to be fitted, on the assumption any other size will not fit. I recently found tyre specs on Realoem and it appears...
