      Morning, just a quick question, i had my wing mirror punched off by some bellend yesterday and my drivers wing panel kicked (see dent) and now my electric windows will not work, my mirror adjusters etc! It did rain last night and i didnt have any tape to protect it! I now have it all wrapped up but do you reckon the rain has caused this have i took the bit inside to look at where the mirror bolts are and it doesnt appear to be wet

            Is anyone interested in these alloys?

            16" with full tread winter tyres on around 2,000 miles old

            After a deal with a pair of standard factory spec alloys + cash my way.

            Will take any reasonable cash offer as the car is being part exed on Thursday so don't want it going with these.

            Colour is BMW platinum, all wheels are superb condition no marks.

            Will need to either meet somewhere to swap or come and collect them to swap as currently on the car

              Hi everyone — BMW 1 SERIES FORUM

              Hi everyone,

              Can anyone help plz. Every time I drive my car the traction control light is flashing then the car starts to losing power.

              Went to the garage and they have tested all wheels, they were working fine on the ramp.

              It has come up with a code in the automatic transmission about a signal from one of the wheels: 51AD

              But they couldn't help me coz they didn't have dealer level diagnostic software,

              So does anyone know what could that be & what's the cost to repair it please?

              Thanks!

                My 2012 118d M sport has started using/leaking lots of oil. BMW have looked at it - no leak, no sensor fault (for oil measurement) and say it's normal for my car (which is a motorway cruiser) to use 1l of oil every 1k miles... Does this sound right? Seems like an awful lot of oil to use and it's never asked me to fill it up before. PFA.

                      Hey all here I have my Airrex air suspension management system

                      System is just sitting in the showroom of my shop taking up space. I am open to reasonable offers but I will not be giving it away

                      These kits are worth double if not triple asking price new

                      $2000ono will take a set of 5x112 wheels as part payment

                      (Compressor needs replacing hence the cheap as f price) ($270 and half an hour of your time to replace)

                      You will not find one cheaper and the compressor swap over is very very easy

                      Located Brisbane

                      Need gone asap!!

                        So here s my big idea — BMW 1 SERIES FORUM

                        So, here's my big idea!

                        My understanding is that the BMW 116i, the Mini Cooper 1.6 turbo and the Peugeot 207 GTI turbo share the same bottom end. I'm not certain about the Peugeot theory but fairly sure about the Mini. Anyway, you can guess where this is going, I want to try and fit the turbo and a modified/custom manifold to my BMW. I understand this is going to be a fairly lengthly process and is potentially impossible with my almost non-existent income, but I think I could probably build and work everything off the car while using it and fit it in a day. Does anyone have any ideas that might help or any thoughts about things that would pose issues? I'm 17 so before anyone suggests buy a BMW with a bigger engine, bare in mind that my insurance is already £1400. I'm perfectly capable of building the mechanical components, what electronic issues will I possibly face? I know I'll have to play around with the ECU but will I need to use the ECU and loom from the Mini?

                        Thanks in advance,

                        Alex

                          Had a battery warning light come on today. last weekend I had the yellow car on a lift light too wich I guess is also battery related because the side lights were on all day when I was working on the car. Suspect battery is on the way out, going to get halfrauds to check it this week sometime. But I was just wondering what size battery I need? Just going to get one from euro car parts or similar and code it myself with carly. I also know I need one that is compatible with start stop. Just need to know the size

                            Bought these with the intention of fitting them to my car, but have never got round to it.

                            Bought the from the US, so it's not the usual eBay crap that peel off after the first wash, these are so much better, hence the price.

                            Included is the front and rear badges inc the chrome surrounds, 4 wheel centre caps and steering wheel badge.

                            Looking for £30 ono + p&p

                              Considering putting my coupe up for sale. But seeing as there's very few 123d's about I'm unsure where to price it and looking for help/ideas.

                              Brief spec..

                              123d coupe 2008 M sport in silver

                              Stage 1 mapped

                              Full MOT

                              M style front carbon splitter, full carbon rear diffuser and carbon rear spoiler

                              Black kidney grills

                              Standard wheels painted in shadow chrome

                              Now for the history....

                              Car snapped timing chain and had top end rebuild obvs including chains and tensioner so is now solid

                              Inlet manifold swapped for non swirl flap

                              DPF and EGR removed and mapped out

                              New discs and pads all round within last 6 months

                              Cosmetically the car is very clean, few stone chips but well cared for with no scuffs or marks

                              Interior is also good with no excessive wear to the seats and only the steering wheel showing some signs of age.

                              I'm unsure if to sell the car as I've gone through and rid it of every common problem, so the car is now perfect but I've owned it nearly 4 years and now have a job close to home so doing very little miles so think it's time for me to go back to a petrol. Need a gauge on where to price it though so please give opinions. Thanks.

                                  What are the right steps taken to check if my battery/alternator are not working correctly?

                                  Since it's cold my amplifier goes into protect mode when playing at max volume! Before it worked perfect so everything is wired up correctly.

                                  Starting doesn't give any problems. I don't have a faults codes when using Ista D related to the battery.

                                  Wanna try this weekend with a digital multimeter.

                                  Battery is just about 1.5 years old:(

                                      Dash Cam Hardwire Help — BMW 1 SERIES FORUM

                                      Got a F20 facelift and trying to hardwire a Nextbase dashcam. Got all the bits to do it but having some issues. When tapped into the rear 12V socket, the camera seems to be intermittently on. It'll be fine for 40 mins or whatever and then will flick off and on until you unplug it. Already got a replacement camera and the issue continues and the camera works in another car so it's not that. I think the power supply is the cause, so the plan is to use an adder fuse into the fusebox but as all of the fuses become live when you unlock the car, I'm struggling to find an ignition source (only want it on when the car is on). Does anyone know which are the permanent and ignition fuses? Ideally fuse numbers. Cheers!

                                        Looking to get it remapped.

                                        Who would you recommend doing it for maximum output.

                                        Also heard that you can buy a turbo kit for the exhaust that adds good bhps, but can't find it anywhere. Is it something I can get straight from BMW?

                                            All set up to work perfectly with the car. Really clean looking install. Works directly with the existing head unit.

                                            Turns on with the ignition and plays music though aux cable or bluetooth.

                                            Pair it to your phone for internet access or get a 3g usb dongle with a Pay and Go sim and plug it into the car (This is what i use).

                                            Can add a bluetooth obd2 plug into you cars port and get all your cars stats on it, BHP, speed, torque, track gps and lap times etc.

                                            - Run usb cable to cigarette lighter or hardwire in.

                                            - If no bluetooth then also run an Aux cable.

                                              Best place for a remap in South Wales guys ? I was going to do the DPF delete but heard laws are changing and who ever has done the delete will be liable to put it back once the law has kicked in. But Iv also heard having a map without DPF delete may cause problems. And what about the egr delete. Will that be a problem with new laws ?

                                              So was looking to get egr blanked and a remap really. Any one shed some info on just having these two done and all the above would be much appreciated

                                                No knocks, bangs or rattles or other untoward noises. The autobox sounds great and changes when it should.

                                                Bodywork very good, only rear bumper scuff being an issue as pictured. Not noticeable until getting close to the car. No stone chips on bonnet or any other blemishes at all.

                                                Only reason I'm getting rid of is to free up cash for an impending house move, the house move also means a diesel is no longer required.

                                                          Quick question... my car was involved in an accident and apparently the xenon kit on driver side is destroyed so I have two options...

                                                          A) get a new xenon kit fitted for £200 and keep how it is

                                                          B) pay £50 and.go back to stock bulbs

                                                          Now if I brought these..

                                                          Would I have to also buy the xenon kit too? I really don't want to pay £200 just for a conversion kit (as it came on the car so not sure if I would have paid my own money for it) but at the same time I don't want to downgrade. I'd love to have the angels but I guess that would cost loads...?

                                                              Hi all, I've had my 2010 120d msport for 6 months or so - still loving it.

                                                              The last service was 27/01/2016;

                                                              - oil/filter

                                                              - air filer

                                                              - cabin filter

                                                              I'm at 69k now and my service light has just popped up, fully expected. Brake fluid is "overdue" while I'm still 7000 miles away from oil/filter (I will change these anyway as it'll take me 9 months at least to do 7k miles).

                                                              It's Recommending I check the discs/pads - which will be done but I know they're in excellent shape.

                                                              My queries are:

                                                              How often does the cabin filter need changing?

                                                              Anyone have experience with K&N panel filters? What's your opinion?

                                                                My partner has just bought a bmw e87 2005 a couple of months ago and her parking sensors have never worked, no warning lights on the dash. I've turned the ignition on and put it in reverse then listened to each sensor to see if there's a clicking noise which i was advised to do but there is no sound at all from any of the sensors, anyone have any ideas what could be the problem, would be much appreciated as she is jealous of my e90 having them

                                                                  Just ordered a Nextbase 312gw dashcam. Have a 2013 118d. The lighter socket under the glovebox is where I'm going to start, but wondering how easy the rest of the 'cable route' is to install. Under panels etc. Anyone else done this sort of thing? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I don't want dangling cables etc. :) Cheers

Leather seats, steering wheel controls, aux lead, tinted windows, tinted rear lights, hid halo ring headlights. Will have an oil change before it goes - was last serviced 6k ago.

                                                                    It's the M47n2 engine
