Never did say bye to this site :-( as I sold my b6 avant.
Well I parted with it bout a month ago and got a 3 litre 3 series.
I have to say iv joined 3 bmw forums and none of them can touch this site for friendliness,info,help!
The motor had been an absolute pleasure to own and mod,but its...
So after much thought i decided the gtb1756 is not worth the extra 15-20bhp and have decided to go big.
Gtb2260vk is capable 300bhp with correct set up,im aiming for 250bhp.
Ive found a place that will supply some dssl injectors which will flow around the 300 mark.
The 2260 will be...
Thought id pick ur brains...
Long story short,my aircons not very cold? Regassed couple of months ago.
Tonight i had a little visual under bonnet and noticed the air con pipe is freezing cold,to the point of bits of ice on it.
But why not through the vents?
Beings i have the bigger turbo,fmic,full decat,egr delete,and recently got my final map i noticed straight away fuel IMPROVED!
Cruising Around 80 was showing 48-50mpg,was usually 43-45.
So today m25 was pretty heavy but flowing,contant 60mph
Just kept improving
accelerator tuning engine performance
Im thinking this mgt help with throttle response,because there is quite a delay,lag,when changing in most gears,especially high gears.
Yay or nay?
Fact or fiction?
So,starting notice at fast-ish speeds 70+ the aircon starts warming up?
But slowing down and at around 0-50,the aircon is nice and cool.
Coolant is full,and a nice red colour,changed about a year ago.
Is a flush needed,debris floating around???
Grass cutter smashed it (another story for insurance) luckily tint is holding it all together.
Autoglass have told me they cant get one,back order from tps,no date!
Left to my own devices...mailed a few breakers on ebay but they can't seem to remove the window.
I know some sellers have them...
My 19" alloys are flaking quite bad,the lacquer is coming off on several parts on each wheel.
How does a refurbishment work,is it going to cost more to remove lacquer? Or is part of service?
I want them back to a polished silver,any ideas what sort of money I should be parting with...
Hi guys,been buggin me now (my rear window) but last winter I scraped it with one of those plastic window wiper cleaners for the frost.
well I wiped it several times but forgot my window was filthy,and have loads of faint scratch marks all over it!
so any tips on removing light scratches?
Ok I have the audi concert,and have the b7 multi function steering wheel which at the mo only controls the volume,station and track selections.
i like to upgrade to a pioneer unit,will I lose the controls from steering wheel?
or does anybody know a good unit that keeps all info and controls...
So I now have the the bv43 turbo
full decat with free flow exhausts
wasted my time n money with the latest remap. That's another story!
so can anyone recommend someone who will be able to fully tune my motor to support the mods above.
surrey,South East area?
Just bought a universal fmic and all pipe work,to try n up the power with my bv43 turbo,full decat,egr delete.
