    Am thinking what's the best way to clean the K&N filter? I've heard you've got to be careful with K&N filters and the 130i because of the MAF sensor, so any guides to properly cleaning the K&N filter without ruining the MAF specifically for the 130i? Appreciate the advice!

    Apologies if this is quite difficult to see but I believe I may have developed a bit of an oil leak that’s collecting a tiny bit just next to the exhaust manifold. There is a bit of dampness on the undertray below the metal too. Could this be that the valve cover gasket needs replacing? Car is...

    Hey there folks, Found Mannol 7908 5w-30 "energy premium" oil that states on the back it's suitable for engines which require BMW LL-04 for sale for much much cheaper than the castrol edge 5w-30 LL variant. Was wondering if it's worth the purchase and will I notice any difference between the...

    I'd like to get an 130i, but I'm struggling to find it manual since less than the half available are autos and there are not many for sale in my country. I really love the involvement of the manual transmission at fun driving on weekends. Is there a huge difference bettween auto and manual...

  6. Engine & Gearbox Tuning
    I recently bought a 2011 130i with the auto gearbox, which is most likely the GM 6L45 (I don't know how to identify it, but it has the "regular" paddle shifters, so upshifts are with the right paddle and downshifts are with the left paddle, so no thumb pressing for downshifting). As expected...

    I'm trying to figure out if it would be a good idea to get rid of my 2016 Volkswagen Polo (in my country it's named Vento, but it's essentially a sedan Polo with a 1.6 Liter L4 engine that produces 105hp) for buying a 130i. The obvious answer would be that it's worth it. But in terms of...

    Hi! I have two questions. 1. My 130i has front end higher than a rear. Rear end is sitting bit low (20-30mm) comparing to front. I put new rear springs but nothing changed. Is it really factory setting? Car has sport suspenion package. 2. The car really likes the low weight (can feel it when...
