Re: Front tyre question

I run 245/35 on the front of mine.

It would be an easy test fit, to quickly pop a rear wheel on the front.

Re: Oil Spec - am I paranoid?

Re: Front tyre question

235/40/18 are quite a bit taller than 245/35/28, are you comfortable with the penny farthing look?

If you're on standard wishbones, have you considered 245/35 all round instead? It would be an easy test fit, to quickly pop a rear wheel on the front.

Re: New owner with an issue!

They aren't a premium motor sadly, just good marketing. You have to go all the way to a 5 Series if you want one that's properly screwed together, in my experience. I've found and cured 3 major rattles on mine, you can try your local dealer or find and fix them yourself with some Tesa Tape or simila...

If you're nuking the warranty, might as well do the job properly and go for the remap.

Re: Tyre pressure display

RDC Safety can be coded on if your car was built after week 10 of 2014. It will show pressures and temperatures afterward.

Re: Tyre pressures

I'd happily experiment with 33 for a larger contact patch/more grip, sounds perfectly safe to me.

im guessing the 240 would be faster as its more streamlined and not as boxy ??
Correct, the 2er is the better car.

Re: Anyone removed the speed limiter?

Y rating is 186mph for 10 minutes, iirc? I don't think you can safely do those speeds indefinitely.

It's the tyres I'd be worried about, 1000G trying to fling them to pieces.

Re: Oil Spec - am I paranoid?

The gearboxes need oil changes every 60k according to ZF. BMW said it was sealed til death, at which point they'd happily sell me a new one.... Drexler advised me to change my Diff oil "once per racing season". I change it every 25k as sensible routine maintenance. A 5w won't flow/protect as well as...

Have you tried a new CTR yet? Looks utterly ridiculous, but it's hard to fault it dynamically (if you can make your peace with FWD).
