    Crank pulley recommendations

    Drove up from London to have Gareth sort the car. Highly recommended and the best without a doubt - will travel again absolutely when next needed.

    Corteco was nearly as expensive as genuine bmw when bought as part of their value kit with the other bits. I also had the water pump and all the belts changed together when mine fell apart earlier this year at 130k miles.

    Odd vibration through steering. Place your bets.

    Is it fixed or did it come back ?

    The cool thing about this place was that I took along my spare 16 inch wheels set along, they took off all my wheels, put on the spare set for me, called me a week later, removed the spare set and put the fresh wheels on my car. On that note if anyone needs a spare temporary set of wheels to help achieve a refurb or for any other reason, give me a shout, happy to let you borrow mine.

    ^^ £800 for a wheel refurb !! If near Herts, there is a good place where mine were powder-coated for £260 all in - INCLUDING tyre fitting+valves+balance ...so really less than £260 for the actual refurb.

    https://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-12v-55w-cosmos-blue-hid-class-upgrade-bulbs-select-bulb-type/ ^ I’ve had these in the front fogs for 10 years. Still going amazingly well.

    Did this latest MOT take place at the same location with the very same tester as the last MOT. Just made me wonder about that especially when you’ve mentioned earlier that its just about done a very minimal 2000 miles since the last test. Lets suppose the car had done done zero mileage since the last MOT ....can a new / latest MOT then pick up such a lot more than what you / one would be expecting to be told given what was found (or not found) at the last MOT. .

  13. Cheers got the msgs thanks Dotcom I’ll hold out for an amp I guess. One thing which I saw someone once use was an amplified base box from I recall possibly from Halfords ...was just placed in the boot ...all under £100 ...when I heard it, to be honest it sounded like a major inprovement on mine. So could be I revisit that set up they had before going ahead.
