    I'm always surprised when members go off immediately to a mechanic when the car starts smoking on idle and when accelerating - from my own experience 50% - 60% of smoking cases are actually the Pressure Control Valves rather than the Valve Stem Seals. If you have smoking problems, do this first!

    Hi, on our 2015 118i Sport, we keep getting a low tyre pressure warning, which, after going to a local garage turned out not to be the tyre but the valve stem itself. I have looked online and seen its possible (and obviously cheaper) to buy just the valve and not the complete TPMS sensor but...

    Hello, I need my intake valves cleaned. I have quotes from popular walnut blasters at £300-£350 I spoke to Birds Tuning who say they clean them "manually" which they think is better. I assume they mean brushing and scraping with intake cleaner. I am also considering doing this my self. I can...
