    SE Saloon quiet tyres - some feedback please.

    Thanks for the input, most tyres are quiet on new smooth tarmac, how are your P3's on the "normal" UK roads ? What size are you running ? Cheers.

    Can you let me know your thoughts on interior road noise from these P3's on various road surfaces ? Thanks.

    SE Saloon quiet tyres - some feedback please.

    Thanks for the reply, would you go as far as to say they are silent on all roads ?

    How easy to change saloon front ARB ?

    Thanks Dan but I will be sticking with standard bushing, the handling is firm enough, actually too firm, I drive the car sedately and the purpose of project Majic Carpet is to sofen eveything up. I want the lovely looks of the Sport but with the uber comfy ride of the SE. Going double glazing and everything.

    How easy to change saloon front ARB ?

    Thanks for this, but just to be clear, I was asking about the anti roll bar, not the bushes. Certainly won't be fitting Poly bushes, no need for Poly anywhere for normal road use. They are much harder and will transmit more harshness into the ride defeating the object of my project. Poly should only be considered for a competition build. were you able to get the roll bar out and clear of the car ? Cheers.
  6. Project 'Magic Carpet' is underway and I would like to hear from SE saloon owners who have found nice quiet and comfortable 16 in tyres in 225/55/16 flavour. I drive the car quite sedately so any tyre will be good enough in terms of grip, braking, wear, cost etc so only interested in comments on tyre road noise inside the car at this time. I did a trawl on this some time ago on here and got some good feedback. I will be ready to pull the trigger soon on a new set so I just wanted to throw the question out there again for some discussion from new members or those members that may have missed it. Thanks. B.
  7. Anyone changed the front ARB on a saloon ? Only one YouTube vid on this and the guy had the sub frame lowered, engine support in place and looked like a bit of hassle. Is all this really necessary or can it be wiggled out of the side ? Cheers. B

    number plate bulbs

    Surely the sensible thing would be to have your number plate lights as dim as possible but within the law, dont want to make it too easy for the cops to take your number do we !

    Saloon rear door water ingress

    The car is normally garaged overnight but it was stuck out in the heavy rain last night. Today I discover water dripping out of the bottom of the rear doors when opened and the NSR footwell carpet is soaking. I am sure I have read something about this, maybe on here so I suspect that this is a known issue ? The car is rust free and I want to keep it that way so what needs to be done to rectify this quickly ? I checked the drain holes in the lower door frame and they seem to be clear. Any advice ?

    BMW INPA free download ?

    I now have it downloaded onto my Samsung Android tablet and it pairs OK with the £5 Bluetooth adapter I have. Not had time to put it to the test yet but will report back when I do.

    BMW INPA free download ?

    BMW INPA is now successfully installed on my Android tablet, the OBD Bluetooth adapter is the same as the £4 one I bought for my Focus so will give it a whirl over the weekend.

    Yes, you can position it flush or wherever you want, no problem.

    BMW INPA free download ?

    Ah ok, so I assume the software is loaded onto a laptop and connected with the special cable to do the business ? I dont have a laptop, desktop and Android tablet only so maybe time to invest in a Windows laptop for diagnostics and coding ?
