  1. Gave the old girl to my indie yesterday for some preventative/reactive maintenance. New front discs, pads and refurbished calipers. New radiator, expansion tank, viscous fan clutch, fan blades, water pump, hoses, temp sensor and oil filter housing gasket. Next on the list will be new shocks as the original ones are well past their best at 128k miles. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Here's the link I mentioned earlier http://autopartstechnik.co.uk/sachs-shock-absorbers.html
  6. Hi mate, I'm interested in the front bumper trims. What kind of condition are they in? Cheers Adam Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    I'm out and about right now, but when I get home I'll post a link to a company that sell genuine Sachs shocks at a very good price. It was user Depthoar on this morning forum that found it originally. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Many thanks for the info Dan. I had all the tensioners, pulleys and belts changed in December and the stat was changed 3 years/25k miles ago. Are the top and bottom rad hoses the only ones worth replacing? Cheers Adam Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah I've already made a list using C3BMW and the 30% off deal with ECP for the rad, viscous fan clutch, water pump and expansion tank. The hoses I've seen on eBay, euros etc etc are normally only for the upper and lower rad ones. I was thinking I'd change as many of the rubber hoses as possible but want to know if this is ott because maybe it's only certain hoses that are prone to failure? Car is a 530i auto touring btw.
  10. The price was just for them to supply the hoses. I'd bite their arm off if they would fit them for that price! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. would you change as part of a cooling system refresh? I've asked my local BMW dealer to quote for just about every rubber coolant hose and it comes out at £311! (before discount) Are there any hoses that never seem to fail? Tia Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Just to clarify I'm after the following hoses. Radiator top & bottom, the 2 that connect to the expansion tank and any other rubber coolant hoses. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi there, I'd like to perform a coolant system refresh and would like a price for all the rubber hoses required please. Car reg is ra02pou Thanks Adam Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Fitted the 2nd hand eBay passenger door control module today and for the 1st time in 5 months I've been able to use the electric window/mirror and deadlock. Bought a matching grey door card off of a forum member to replace the damaged one and the total fix has cost me only £26! Having a grey interior does have a few advantages lol.
