Re: Car stolen

What gets me is you can have your car stolen (which could be worth in excess of £100k and for the majority of us is the means of earning a living) and the police will issue you with a crime number. Yet a supermarket will have a shoplifter steal a £6 joint of meat for example, and they get a blue lig...

Re: G42 2 Series Coupe leaked photos

It seems they have exchanged their Timeless sleek design in favour for angry and aggressive sharp angles.

Re: Car stolen

Not an ounce of the pressure our NHS workers are under at present.
If they can’t even pursue a serious crime against a keyworker, what chance do the rest of us have?

Re: G42 2 Series Coupe leaked photos

The front lights look stolen from a GT86, and the rear lights...they just look awkward?.. like clumsy abarth 124 rear lights almost.

It’s worse when people sit with those yellow flashing lights on, causes epilepsy! I mean seriously, what are they trying to tell us?...

Re: VGate adaptor for Bimmercode

VGate adaptor for Bimmercode

So I’m wanting to get Bimmercode to do a bit of coding on my 65 M135i.
I’ve seen there are several VGate iCar adapters available. Is the VGate iCar Pro worth the extra money or should I just go for the VGate iCar 2?
I plan to use Bimmercode on an iPhone if this helps?

TIA

DP16BKA M135i. LCI

Does anybody know of this car? Just wondering if it has belonged to a forum member previously?

I’ve seen it advertised, and wouldn’t mind taking a look round it, but thought I’d ask the question on here before I do...

Re: 130i with Dave F airbox mod can it cause P0174 and P0171 to lean bank 1/2

As long as the open section of air box is before the MAF sensor, it shouldn’t cause any issues as the Air/Fuel ratio will be adapted to suit any extra air being drawn in by the mod. Air being drawn in after the MAF sensor would cause this, as it’s unmetered. Have you used a K&N air filter with the a...

Re: 130i 2A99 and 2a98 Camshaft to crankshaft faults

Sounds more like it could be camshaft bearing ledge wear?
I’ve never heard of a chain stretch on these engines?

Re: BMW recall

If it’s cranking then it won’t be anything to do with the battery cable.
It’s all or nothing when that fails, no power what so ever.

Re: 130i Calipers

I did, great service from autodoc and they fitted fine. You pay a surcharge so initially the calliper is more expensive than shown, however if you can be bothered to (which I can’t) hen return your old unit and they’ll reimburse you the surcharge fee
