    Help! Peeling...

    Hi All, Walking back to the car today and spotted this: There has been no obvious bumps to it (that I know of), so it must have purely just deteriorated, fell and then been slapped by a speed bump. Has anyone else had anything similar happen? Is this fatal/requiring of a replacement or can...

    12V Cigarette Lighter Sockets - Can they be modified to turn off with the ignition?

    Hi all, Has anyone on here ever bothered to install an ignition switch for the 12V sockets? If so, how did you go about it? Cheers, Juan

    Help please with jammed glove box door.

    Hey @I'm Just Rob. Which road did you end up going down? New latch or new box? I've just had the same thing happen to mine... I've taken the latch out and sure enough, some small plastic lever fell out with it. Is it fixable at all or is this a new part job?

    Light faults

    Yeah it looks like it was a leak! The ground wire/terminal was completely corroded. Bought a new bulb holder , plug and terminal pins. Crimped for now, but looks messy, will go back sometime in the spring and solder properly. Cause of the leak looked like deteriorated rubber lining around the...

    Light faults

    Hey all, Just jumped into the car after a Lidl shop and the HUD is telling me that my right rear brake, right rear indicator and right rear reverse lights have all gone, simultaneously. Obviously, replacing them is no bother, but I find the fact they all went at once a little suspicious. I have...

    Installing K&N Air Filter

    Fair play, guess gazwouldn't! Had a good run out today and on my 2.0 petrol has blatantly improved throttle response so fine for me!

    Installing K&N Air Filter

    Good point, I've chucked the old one now, but makes sense to have something spare to whack in whilst it dries, guess I'll just have to keep on top of the service record and grab a cheapie when it's coming up to cleaning time!

    Installing K&N Air Filter

    Decided to go for a K&N filter, managed to find time to fit it yesterday. Quite impressed by the build quality, first time I've fitted one. Noticeable difference in sound and also surprisingly noticeable throttle response increase so chuffed really for such a simple job! (Yeah I popped one of...

    Custom PIDS - Do they exist?

    Yes, but a very lengthy job! Possibly encrypted too. I saw on a forum that someone managed to locate and tabulate pretty much every single BMW one, (link below in case useful for anyone) and by the sound of things on the forum they work great with torque. Was hoping someone may have done the...

    Custom PIDS - Do they exist?

    Likewise mate! Runs brilliant with the ELM I grabbed off ebay. Basically, without the custom VAG PIDs (the ones that VCDS and OBDeleven use) you can't access some values such as oil temp/level, fuel temp and various injection stats/timing stuffs (plus way more). Having the full set of VAG-COM...

    Finally getting aftermarket exhuast, any suggestions?

    Yeah mate, great points there, I've already had a little snoop at high flow cats and seems like a good step forward there. Will do a little more research into the manifold but what you're suggesting (4-2-1 Set up) sounds like where I'm headed for
