    Hi all members here. I have a question on these strip lights on the top side of the headlight unit. Can we change them to led white lights rather than the standard yellow colour it has? If you can change the strip light how do I go about doing it? I have tried to Google search and use YouTube...

    So I swapped the radiator and expansion tank over for new ones today on my 2004 320cd and I have a strip of rubber trim left over. It is approximately 5 inches long and clearly clips onto the edge of something but I'm damned if I can figure it out? Help appreciated. Jimbo

    Hi guys new to the forum here. I drive a 59 plate 320d coupe, automatic. What is the black strip that sits accross the engine cover towards the top?

    Hi, I'm trying to introduce front fog lights to my E36 1992 318i. When I checked, there was no relay so I set about trying to add one. The problem is, there's some kind of blank plate that needs to be removed before the relay can be added. However, I found it difficult to remove and didn't want...

    Firstly, apologies as I'm sure this has been covered elsewhere but the search function isn't giving me a definitive answer right now! You'd think it's a very simple one, my driver side tail light is out on my 2006 e92. It is the bottom of the three "strips". I took it to Halfords but the guy...

    Hi guys, I'm having an issue with the bit of trim around the passenger side front door on my e46 325ci. The car was sitting undriven for a few months, and in that time the trim seems to have come unstuck and is now hanging down in a quite annoying way! (see attached) I've tried some extra...

    Hi guys, so I've installed a wiring strip in the car, I did this by connecting it to the dome lights so it fades in and out. My question is how can I wire it so it also comes on with my sidelights? I assume if I connect it to both then the dome lights will come on with the sidelights and vice...

    I'm trying to strip down my steering rack to take the seals out. I have taken out the pinion but I cant get the rack out. On one end you can see a metal ring that seems to be holding it in, how do you get I out? Bmw are sneaky buggers with stuff like this.
