  1. Many thanks, will note that down. It was done less than 5,000 miles ago, so hopefully nothing to worry about in the near future. Engine seems very frugal too!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So, after the lease Tekna Leaf went back, a short spell in a Cooper S proved too small for mumsy duties. Sold on first viewing. Best bang for your buck, these come quite high on my list, sharp styling, good space, great mpg, bit leftfield!! Saab 9-3 150 1.9 diesel. Needed a good clay bar / detail / paint correction etc, but a few mods in and all is well: So far: Corrected paint, fitted xenon kit, added bluetooth bury cradle, led rear number plate lights, and best part, £60 of new alloys off gumtree with tyres like new!!! Before: ( detail had occurred by this point, loads of nasty scratches out ) El cheapo wheels added: Halfway through hid upgrade! look at the difference: Car has also recently been cambelted / waterpump, full front suspension overhaul, exhaust flexi replaced, gear linkages replaced, All this for the princely sum of £1500. 135,000 miles, feels great.

  7. hmmm Im not sure. [emoji848] Not keen on badges, needs to be bmw badges for me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. it requires full BMW service history Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ok no probs!! I have a M-ask system which I was thinking of reverting to and selling the CIC system to free up money for other mod's. Further info be appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. will this fit e60 CIC? and what coding is needed to get it to operate? can i just add a windscreen mounted aerial, any info regarding how to install?? or where etc? am interested. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a slight vibration again ( changed discs and pads last time ). But notice this completely goes when braking going down hill, with the weight up front it completely eradicates it?? My thoughts were lower arm bushes etc. But I too find things improved in extreme cold temps and after hard braking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 11x 50w = 550w vs 55w ( assume each led is 5w. ) No change? struggle to believe it. Plus you set your direct debit up and forget about it. Did you check your meter average kw/h consumption across a month before and after change? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. it is no different to any other car in terms of fitting an hid kit. You will be able to fit one easily and no doubt has been done many times before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. hid kit at 4800k fantastic! why 100% led?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. vac lines?? I thought this engine had an electronic driven actuator for the turbo etc? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. awful wheels??? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I am not having a go, you are taking this way too sensitively. "fnuk fnar this"...... as you would say! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Dont waste your time then regarding trying to vax or dry it out form top down, I tried then gave up and pulled it all out. Appreciate what you are saying, if thats the case stop wasting your time trying it your way, you really are doing fnuk all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. dry your eyes!! just adding to that moisture in that carpet [emoji23] my house has a roof, don't know about yours?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. you wont get it out, you are getting 1/10 of it. Only way is carpets out. Those e36's will be easy enough to strip out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. well?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. you will not get those carpets even remotely dry unless you remove them. The foam backing will be saturated literally full of water!! my Z3 carpets had litres and litres of water in them, not joking was shocking. Get the carpets out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I would be keeping the bluetooth kufatec unit as its a good selling point for the car. But regarding the CIC. Id be selling following: Newer i drive controller including the 6 series surround which is needed to sit controller in. Fascias for the CIC unit itself regarding lower and upper heater sections GPS antenna USB glovebox port and cable Screen CIC unit with 2016 maps ( needs coding for your car ) or buy emulator Cables for screen newer style connector for the new screen which you re-wire Full fitting instructions Make me an offer.

  24. I would get the carpets out, I guarantee they are sodden underneath in the foam backing. I had similar issues with Z3's. After fixing the leaks, I stripped interior out completely to dry carpets out properly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I fitted CIC unit to car from Mask unit. I had no factory fit bluetooth but instead fitted a kufatec bluetooth system, it basically fools car into thinking it has standard bluetooth from factory and works a treat with the CIC unit. Regarding CIC. I might be selling mine if you are interested? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
