Re: Seats - too big!

It's a 2006 e87, fabric seats in black/grey. Definitely don't want (faux) leather thanks, will be sticking (not literally) to the fabric. But thanks for the offers both. Fabric BMW sport seats have the main panels in fabric with the sides in SensaTec - BMW speak for faux leather. I'm not sure that ...

10mm spacers if necessary, and THETYRANT's camber plates to get the angle.
Food for thought thanks both :thumbs:

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Marco is this 12mm per wheel or total track increase? Might influence my choice of brake upgrade in time. 12mm per side, approx. http://i183.photobucket.com/albums/x280/berktechnology/Berk_TechnologyBMW135iM3wishbone-11.jpg Doesn't effect the brakes though, the whole assembly gets swung outwards. h...

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

That is a very good point! Pre FL 130i, not staggered wheels Front - Michelin PS4 - 225/40/18 - 1.44°/1.43° Camber Rear - Pirelli P-Zero Nero - 225/40/18 - 1.7° Camber I believe I have 12mm spacers all round. I can post the geometry setup when I get home. I can get the fronts and rears to rub, if I...

Re: 116i tyre pressures

Should be a plate on the drivers door pillar with recommend pressures for loaded and unloaded vehicles. Find your tyre size on there and you're away :)

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Finally got around to fitting the standard plastic kick plates I found on Ebay a while ago. The silver ones were well past their best especially the rears.

Re: Where to buy black grills?

See if www.lllparts.co.uk have any. There prices seem very good I the stock what you’re after. Great link. Thanks.

Try cotswold for a price. At least you'll know they're genuine.

Re: MASSIVE front arch gap

How big a gap are we talking? Is it the same on the rears? The SE does ride quite high.

If you can get some photos posted that may help other more knowledgeable folk. :)
