  1. ah right fair play, any issues you've noticed increasing the profile? 35's are cheaper to get hold of aswell arnt they?
  2. lovely motor, if love to take mine abroad someday, what size tyres you running on the rear? seem to be quite a large profile there
  3. my 320d dpf got blocked I couldn't justify spending the money on a new dpf considering the low value of the car. you only notice the smoke if your car behind + I agree it's not pretty. I viewed my wife's dash cam footage after she was following me and under acceleration it's smokes more than I realised or could tell from the drivers seat, id gut it again though as I only do local miles and the extra 30bhp is worth the extra smoke imo
  4. please share more details!
  5. have to admit Google maps has never let me down, and in my android phone the voice input so accurate compared to any other voice input systems I've ever used
  6. That sounds very cheap? Did you get it mapped also?
  7. how's the power increase like? big difference?
  8. is it worth it? I usually take it out, it's around an extra £30 just wondering if its actually worthwhile?
  9. not today but on Saturday gave the car a clean, nice bit of snow foam, 2 bucket method wash and put it in the garage + hoovered the interior. In antisipation of the nice weather on Sunday I thought I'd treat it to a coat of show wax (only lasts a month but the gloss is worth it) gave the wheels a polish with AG super resin polish and applied Sonax wheel sealant to them. it's dirty again now but was worth it for this picture on Sunday
  10. I'm thinking of the same thing myself! Just had the dpf removed on my e92 320d as the dpf was very blocked and it although it's only a 2.0 these not been any noticeable extra soot, I was kind of expecting a load of extra smoke on hard acceleration. The place I got it done from Advised they had cut along the original weld lines to remove the dpf so there is visually no difference so passing mot wouldn't be an issue (there chap who mot'd my car actually recommended dpf removal) The extra 35bhp gained from the re-map makes the car so much more enjoyable! The e60 (mainly used by the wife) has just had a dpf clean from main dealer while it was still under warranty so I'm not overly concerned it will get blocked but may just consider a remap, I'm in 2 minds though, was quoted £300 for just a map and am soo tempted, may just let my wallet recover a little 1st then go for it.
  11. Try a clay bar, Autoglym glass polish + some rain x
  12. My uncle got the dreaded timing chain rattle on his 2010 520d + decide to sell the car before it went bang, unless your hearing anything unusual I wouldn't bother spending thousands replacing it. I heard mine rattling on my 4 pot e92 and luckily the dealer agreed to replace under AUC warranty
  13. is this the sort of thing your referring to?
  14. do you mean for the doors or the wingmirrows?
