    Good evening Gentleman, need some clarification and help needed for a bunch of headlights I've got, hopefully this thread can also help others in the near future should they need it. So, I've recently modified my BI XENOS with some lights from BAGRUPPE. See pictures below and I want them...

    Hi all, I was recently looking to see why my engine cover was vibrating and realised one of the bolts is missing to hold it in place. When I took the engine cover off I realised the bolt holder is worn which means it wouldn't be able to secure an Allen bolt in the engine cover in the first...

    Hi guys, Sorry if this is a repost, but I couldn't find any threads about this. First of all, it's 2007 E87 118d M47TU2D20 90kW DPF Euro4 I know that cars make weird sounds before startup, but this just doesn't seem to be normal. I'd understand the buzzing and stuff, but what about that...

    Hi guys, Im having an issue with my 116i (N45) as when I start my car up from cold I get a half-shaded yellow CEL on the KOMBI display. I scanned it with my generic tool at the moment but there was no codes stored. I had an oxygen sensor code that was detected by this tool. It was for the cat...

    Hello Everyone, I'm the owner of 2006 130i E87 and since I got the car with 114k kilometers I found out that the steering almost doesn't self center at all after cornering at any speed. Recently upgraded to ST XA Coilovers and m3 LCAs but still the problem wasn't fixed. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Hi, Quick question, a brake fluid change (after not having one in at least 8 or 9 years) is likely to increase the brake force right? and not simply the firmness/responsiveness of the brake pedal. I'm talking about the actual maximum brake force generated by the brake caliper. Appreciate any...

    Hi all, At the MOT test centre, after the roller brake test was complete, I was surprised to see on the summary page that were readings for a "Secondary Brake". If I recall correctly, there were readings under 4 columns titled, in order, "Service Brake", "Secondary Brake", "Imbalance" and...

    Trying to remove the angled air intake pipe (p/n 7804846) as it has a massive rip in it. I can work out hot to remove the top but how do I remove the bottom of the pipe? Looks like it has some kind of clip on it?

    Hi guys, I have an E87 118D and It was written off and repaired ( CAT S) with a lot of filler. I am thinking of buying a clean titled LCI e87 preferably from the same year or newer that has had chain failure and then swap my engine in from the old car as it is still a strong runner with lots of...

  19. Wheels & Tyres
    Hi everyone, just a simple post looking for a bit of advice/ recommendations. I’ve been in the market for some new wheels and love the 3sdm 0.01 style also the M3 359M’s. Though I’ve heard that 3sdm 0.01 do not fit on E87’s I’m not 100%sure about 359M’s, I’d assume they wouldn’t fit as I’ve...
