    Arb bush day today, poly bushed the m5 rear roll bar and fitted heavy duty meyle drop links, also poly bushed the front arb for good measure too Also think I've cured an annoying issue when driving hard, with the under tray off I could checked the actuator vacuum hose and it looks like 10mm of old vacuum hose was still on the actuator nipple and the new hose was barely holding on, managed to pry the small bit off and push the new hose fully on, car drives alot smoother now, will give it a good blast over the weekend

    Sunroof issues.

    Just adjusted my roof as it's never Sat properly since I got it, always seemed a few mm too high, now nice and flush and took less than 5 minutes as per the instructions above, also had an annoying rattle for over a year and sorted that a while ago but it was the concertina skirt had come away from the roof frame on the drivers side as pictured above could have sworn it was in the boot but was right above my head
  6. Sorry for not replying sooner, im not sure on the resistor size as it was the active headrest side we bypassed

    E61 Rear Wheel Bearing Replacement?

    Give the outer cv joint a good soaking with wd40 wheel end over the next few days, I did mine and the shafts were welded into the hub / bearing , also had to air gun the hub nut off as that was also tight a.f
  8. Pop a resistor in the circuit to make it think it's plugged in and working, had a similar issue fitting some seats in my brothers e61 they had active headrest which kept throwing up faults
