    Evening All, I’m going through some bits on the car in preparation for it’s MOT in a few months. I’ve noticed that 3 of the 4 dampers are weeping.

    Oil change needed on my E90 N47 Diesel 2011. I want to a regular oil change to avoid timing chain failure. Any suggestions as to the best oil to use? I recall someone suggesting millers for my wife's 325 6 cylinder. Can't remember if it 5W30 or fully synthetic advice needed please.

    About to get some winter rubber on my E61 but wondering what size would be best? Stick with my standard 225 50 R17 or change to 245 45 R17? Pros and cons of each size would be helpful, also best brand and which to avoid. All advice welcome!

    Hi Chaps I've discovered (to my horror) that I have some dreaded rust in the bottom centre of my driver's door. I don't yet know how bad it is (might take the door card off tomorrow to have a look inside). Along with some in the driver's side rear wheel arch.... So can anyone help with two...

    Hi all The trolley jack I have (stolen from my dad!) is coming to the end of its life. Also it's a pain to use as car is now lowered so no longer fits under the front. Can anyone suggest a decent low profile jack that will lift the car high enough to put it on stands? Both the front and...
