Single turbo, N55 engine.

I don't like the standard stereo, I suspect you'll be adding tweeters and changing speakers before long.
Haha OK, who's the best source for aftermarket speaker installation? Never looked into it to be honest.
I'd pop some Focal's in her.

Re: Alignment issues HELP please

I'd be fitting some proper rear tyres, then popping over to Bridgend to see Avia Auto's.

I'd sell the part worn Falkens on eBay to help fund the swap.

Re: Alignment issues HELP please

I'm pretty sure! If you can think of a better reason why yours is almost exactly -30' better than a stock 1er on both front corners, please let me know. These cars need more negative camber not less, fitting the wrong front hubs is going to make it understeer like an Audi. You don't want that, or th...

Re: 1 Series Cope vs. 3 Series Coupe

Are the 120/123d engines really that bad, I have heard some stories! I wouldn't consider one personally, I'd rather poke live wasps up my arse. I can't stand the N47, terrible design. Do your homework very carefully on the timing chains, swirl flaps, 123d actuators, HPFP, EGR failures, DPF issues, ...

Re: Square Set Up

The 8" wheels will need a spacer to avoid them fouling the dampers and callipers at the front , something like a 12mm spacer.

Otherwise, the plan is sound.

Re: Alignment issues HELP please

Some retard techie is looking at the computer, which is saying "Except-M135i", and taking that a bit too literally.

All M-Lites are the same at the front, TIS categories should say "M-Lites" and "Except M-Lites" to avoid confusion.

Re: Alignment issues HELP please

Your front camber should be roughly -0.50° as standard on an M140i, so yours sound bob-on to me? :?

Falkens are known to be floppy rubbish, I'm willing to bet the tail is wagging the dog, making the car feel unstable/vague.
