Re: Brake Vacuum Pressure Sensor - Tiny Hands?

I've had no luck in accessing my sensor yet but in the last couple of weeks my partners start stop has stopped working on her 2012 mini coupe. I'm guessing it possibly is the same problem and have managed to access the sensor and remove it. I had a try, cleaned it up and cleaned up the rubber bung ...

Re: LSD vs X-Drive

I love people with 4x4 who think that helps them when it's slippery out. The biggest challenge is always stopping in a hurry, not getting going in the first place - that's the easy bit. Most normal road LSD's don't fully lock though, TorSens are clever open diffs in reality, and BMWP Drexlers only l...

Re: MPSS or PS4

PS4's and PS-4S do need less similar names.

Re: LCI M135i or M140i

It's a personal choice really. I'd probably go for the £2,000 in my pocket + better spec (assuming you want all the toys, and both cars are in a similar condition), unless you suspect 340bhp over 330bhp is going to make a big difference to you? If you do go for an early M140i, make very sure it's ha...

Re: 19" RFT's. How bad are they really?

Little difference on a 19", they don't really have much in the way of sidewalls.

Re: Sorting rear suspension

Billies plus Performance Bumpstops could help, maybe consider some softer M135i rear springs too?

Re: mapping advise - Anyone near Southampton?

I love it when dodgy companies start telling you squirting in more fuel will definitely save you fuel. And they're pushing illegal DPF removal?! Dicks.


DMS are in Southampton, probably more dollar though.

Re: M135i What is it worth

I'd go Option 1 (with sports cat rather than decat). It will cost too much to swap you into basically the same car, only the newer one will still be deprecating quickly. In the next 2 years, yours should cost you very little to own by comparison, a nearly new M140i will be -£10k to swap and a furthe...

Re: 120D Gearbox Drain & Fill Plug Part Number

Varies with year. Give your VIN to the guys behind the parts counter to make sure you get the correct plugs.

The ones for my M-Lite were about twice the price of my E87 plugs, and didn't even have a seal built in.

Re: M135i What is it worth

What value does WBAC give?

^ Those are all Auto's, no? Believe me, I'd be pretty chuffed if my April 2014 Manual is worth more than £13k.

Re: M140i Model History please

Have you read the M-Lite FAQ Sticky in full?

I think you want Post 20 in there.
