  1. Pics? Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  2. I put brembo on the other week. Impressed with the bite they have. Plus I got them on an eBay offer and they were already at a good price. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  3. Happened to me 3 weeks ago too! Plastic sealing on the spring was chipped and rusted the spring through at that point. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  4. How much has the last 12 months cost everyone? I spent a wedge on a shiny E60 (520d Msport 2008)14 months ago because on my last car every month something broke and I was sick of fixing my cars. But the first year of ownership of a bmw has gone in the same direction: New Recon turbo (blow up out if nowhere 2 months after getting the car) Oil feed line, Oil and filter, Clean blocked dpf and cat, X2 front coil spring (because 1 snapped and popped the tyre) 2 front tyres, Front brake pads and sensor. So far I'm down about 1k in parts. All work done myself so no labour charge, just the wife on at me because I'm under the car again! Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  5. Great Finish! Orange is good but need other door trim and dash trim to bring it all together. Keep going I say.
  6. Please post an installed pic. I think it should look good. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  7. Hi. Can I get a price for a set of 2008 520d Msport front springs please. One of mine has just sheared and gone through my tyre! My Reg is YR58XHT. Many thanks. Simon Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  8. Hi all. My I drive is saying my front pads need changing. I don't want to skimp and get the cheapest (for obvious reasons) but at the same time I don't have a lot of money this month and am trying to save. What front pads does everyone recommend and how much will I be looking at. I am a competent mechanic and I asume it's an easy job to change? Any input appreciated.

  9. As long as ignition isn't on or has been turned on just reconnect connection and you will be fine. If you have turned ignition on with wire disconnect you will now have a fault code you will need clearing. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi I am about to go away for 10 weeks and not sure how to leave my 520. In the past I have always left my older cars in gear with the handbrake off and a brick behind the wheels and disconnected the battery. But not sure if it's wise to disconnect the battery on the bmw for this long due to all the computers and electronics. This was never an issue with my older focus or saab. Any advice much appreciated. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk

  13. I cut off my duff flexie with an angle grinder and put on a clamp on one for £40. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk

  15. My wiper arm has just come off! It looks like there should be a cir-clip holding the arm pivot point to the wiper mechanism. Can you buy these to fit the arm back on? If so can anyone point me in the direction because I can't find them. Many thanks. Sent from my SM-G800F using Tapatalk
