    Ride height question

    Hi Easty027 I have M sport Suspension and the Eibachs make no noticeable "visual" difference to ride height, I have just installed H&R Springs which give me about a 15mm visual drop and allows the car to sit perfect, in my opinion. The drive and comfort have also improved, less crashing over bumps etc, so i am more than happy with the results. what picture hosting sites do we all use now, since photo bucket have started charging? i will upload the before and afters.

    F11 roof box

    Just check the dimensions of the boxes, the litreage is just the easy way of telling how big it is. Practical use for example is more important. If i remember mine is 45cm in tallest point, my holdalls and usual gear run at about 40cm, so it fits fine, if say you get one at 50cm, yes it will be taller, but unless you actually use the extra space ontop of your holdalls then its wasted space, if that makes sense...

    F11 roof box

    I have an Exodus (halfords) 580 litre one, for my F10 i had it for my E60 and just used it on the F10 Itis fine and works well, i cant comment on whats good or bad, but like you, i thought thule were over priced, and this was the biggest you could buy at reasonable cost at the time, (£270) i was advised to get the biggest i could afford and it fits fine on the car. here it is on the E60 not got any of it on the F10 sorry. http://

    12v Sockets

    Mine is wired into the socket under the glove box and i can confirm it does "turn off" after approx 15 minutes. see my post bellow, no piggy backs of fuses required

    Retro Fit Towbar on to an F11

    If you mean the electric one, then i am not sure. But if its just the standard removable type, then its quite common, most if not all garages that fit bars will be able to supply or fit.

    F10 Roof Bars

    Hi I currently have a roof bar system from BMW for my older F10 and I have transferred it for my newer F10 car. I have a few parts request if possible Bars are 82 71 2 150 092 I have lost 2 of the bolts and 1 of the cams off the original, so can I purchase these separately or do they come as a full set. Also I have misplaced the cleaning tool for the holes in the roof, can this be purchased, or if not do you know the size of the hole/thread so I can buy a generic tap off the net. Cheers
  11. E60 space saver fits fine, dont buy the 3x more expensive F10/11 one. All you need is a 15mm hubspacer and longer bolts.
  12. Space saver wheel from my older E60. Jack kit inside a wheel bag. Rachet strapped to the floor using the two anchor points in the boot, the bonus is it presses up against the rear seat and stops the annoying rattle i have there...

    F11 WHEELS

    Steve I have gone for Zito 935 in 20's Not on the car as yet, as its a balmy 9 degrees at the moment, and winter tyres are needed!!!! only in 9.5 but they look quite good. nothing original about them, but they do look amazing in the deeper 10.5, i was just concerned about rubbing, so chickened out as my mileage is quite high. here they are on my old car. all be it in 19"

    Where do you put your keys?

    I like others have a largish bunch of keys, including the car key, I hated the pocket/door/cupholder ideas so i just got myself a key ring with a big soft plastic loop on it and now as soon as i get in the car, i "hang" them from the windscreen wiper stalk by the door. perfect in my opinion, its like it was in the ignition switch as it used to be, the only niggle was they used to rub slightly on the steering wheel cover, so i just put a small black piece of foam where they touched, and now, no noise or rattle
