Anyone run Koni STR.T?

I’ve got an E82 125i and looking to change suspension. Had Bilstein B4 and Eibach Pro before on my 130i and they felt very planted, I actually bought the SE spec B4s rather than the M Sport replacements. Seen a set of Koni STR.T for a good price, does anyone have any feedback of how they sit and how...

Re: 125i exhaust midpipe dilemma

Mid pipes are the same on a 130i and 125i, it’s the same exhaust

Downsized to 17 inch 304M with some fresh Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5s yesterday! They poke out a bit more but look aggressive!

Fitted the 304Ms today and they suit the car so well! Looking chunky and not as small as I thought 17s would...

Who's on 225 square tyres?

Afternoon! My new wheels are arriving tomorrow 17x7.5J ET32 off an X3. I've done the calculations and they fit. The only stumbling block for me at the moment is tyre choice. 235/45 was the original plan, but 225/45 is much closer to stock rolling diameter. 218 to a max of 270hp isn't a lot and pre-F...

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

Ok I was being dramatic, there is SOME coolant in there. Image

How much should the orange dipstick poke up?

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

If it's low, a little de-ionised water should be ok. The coolant should be G48 (which is very similar to G11), it's normally blue-ish. Thanks! The tank looked totally empty but no codes, going to get some Comma G48 from Halfords and get the bumper off and fill the tank and see where my leak is!! Se...

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

Am I best to just add some de-ionised water to top up the coolant (if that's all that's wrong)? As I have no idea what coolant is in it!

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

This is frustrating! Bought some new wheels last night and now this happens. I've been very lucky with my N52 engined cars though. Only Vanos solenoids and oil changes...

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

Cheers chaps, I'll check the coolant level before the 2 minute drive home, then plug it in when I get home to check for codes. Guessing any 2e81-2e85 and it's need a new pump & stat?

It's blowing hot toasty air just fine!

Re: Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

Checking it's flowing, is that a case of setting it to bleed with the reservoir cap open to ensure it's pumping? I will plug it in lunchtime also to check!

Amber coolant warning light... just cold? E82 125i

Morning guys, Got into my car this morning, soon as I started it up I got an amber coolant level warning light. Stayed for my journey to work but never turned red. Could it just be the cold or is it worth topping up? Am guessing best bet is to see what happens when I get in it later? I'll also plug ...
