Re: Upgrading E82 123D Coupe Headlights

OSS & OneEighty are very pricey.. In excess of $1000 i believe. Best option is to go with Headlight Retrofits. Have a look on the lighting section and see what they did to Joe's.They look fantastic. I used Headlight Retrofit's projectors and custom fitted them into my Depo's (Headlight brand) along...

Re: Purchasing M 18" 261 rims and run flat tyres

Does anyone know of good, reputable online sellers of BMW rims (looking for 261Ms) or know where to get them so I can enquire and then equally as important if they ship to Australia? I've enquired with BM Autosport and they won't ship here. The costs for these rims here are extraordinary and I have ...

Re: My 2006 e87 120i Le Mans Blue

I don't understand why people don't like the chrome grille. I really like it, and prefer it to the black surround which just looks a little bland and low-rent imo. The chrome gives some definition and detail interest, which I like. The black ones look cheapo-spec. The chrome doesn't tie in with any...

:spotman: Getting there piece by piece. Just had my rear lights arrive in the post on the weekend. Looking forward to putting these on the car also but when I opened the box I had PRE FL Darklines....so now I've got to send back and reorganize for FL rear lights.

Re: My 2006 e87 120i Le Mans Blue

So Jelous! I really want to rid of my 207's but Cant afford or find a cheap enough set. :( Lee, I'll get the details of the guy I sourced my rims and tyres from. He was awesome! Given that it was cheaper for new rims and tyres + international despatch costs to Western Australia than it was to sourc...

The LMB color really suits the "stealth" look, black grills, no chrome, black alloys etc etc.....

There are pictures around but I don't know where.

Cheers Lee.

Re: My 2006 e87 120i Le Mans Blue

Best little mod that!!! One of the first Mods I done when I got the car. :) Next is to get rid of the Chrome grill. ;) Hi Lee, You reckon...? I'm still undecided on the dark grilles or the chrome edge grills I already have. I like them I'm just still a little unsure. Help convince me otherwise with...

Re: My 2006 e87 120i Le Mans Blue

Further updates to my 120i. Installed the non-error LED parker lights first and no matter what I did I just couldn't get them to work. Hope someone has some ideas otherwise I'm going to send them back. Did you buy cambus free ones? Bushy, wait out, I'll have to get back to you on that one. Past mid...

Re: New rear box 118d/120d (mv sport)

the rear box is a lot less restrictive then the stock unit, This will help the turbo spin up a little fast.. We have not had chance to dyno them back to back. but on other Td car's gains have been 6+hp.. As for the sound just a little deeper not loud at all and fitting is a pice a cake. And the off...
