    I've just bought a 2010 335i Touring to replace my 2005 330i Touring. The new car doesn't have i Drive and sat nav, but my old car does, so I'd like to swap the system from my old car into the new one. Can this be done? Or did the electrical spec change too much between 2005 and 2010? Thanks

    I know in theory only I can make this decision, but it’s an interesting discussion and would like to hear some opinions on it.

    My Speakers on my 2004 E60 could probably do with replacing, they sound OK but not as crisp as they should, are there any reasonably prices direct replacement speakers out there that won't break the bank TIA

    Recently got a 67 reg 420i which has the standard m sport brakes, which don't perform that well and also look small behind the wheels. So I have been looking for cost effective upgrades to improve both looks and performance as I am looking to remap the car in the near future. I don't really want...

    I have the F31 330D M-Sport with factory fit brakes. I was looking to upgrade the brake calipers to 2nd hand Brembo 4 pot 340 mm front and 2 pot 340 mm rear, with matching rotors. I have contemplated the 370 mm front set up but the initial cost would be more and as this is a 330D may not really...

    Is there an LCI light upgrade for the pre face lift e91? 2006 model? I hate the early style lights as I think they make the e91 look dated!
