    Oh joy!
  4. Looking for a part number for the front springs. Not listed on Real OEM as far as I can see. Seem to be plenty around for circa £40 but just need to be sure I have the right part number.

    Hi Joe Many thanks. I already have the fitting kit so would be grateful if you'd take it out of the quote. I also live just around the corner from Cotswold Cheltenham so will collect - could you take out the P&P too please? Thanks! Kind regards Chris

    Hello I'm after a pair of front strut 'guide supports', part ref 31306795082. Do these come complete with the bearing? Vehicle is known to you, reg YC62TOV Oct 2012 F11 Touring 520D. Thanks!

    F11 Wheel Offset

    It's interesting looking at it further that the OE 8.5x19 & 8.5x20 wheels both have an offset of ET33, ie. greater than the 8" wide wheels. Maybe ET35 would be the way to go with the 8.5x18 wheels I am looking at?

    Staying with the tyre size currently fitted.

    F11 Wheel Offset

    Rolo My reason for asking is that the wheels I am interested in are offered in BMW fitment in the two offsets. Had they also been exactly the same size as the current wheels my question wouldn't have arisen. But they are 0.5" wider. I asked the question as I was unsure whether the larger offset would be better with the wider wheel. (It's my wife's car - she doesn't want me to spend money on wheels....)

    F11 Wheel Offset

    Thanks. According to the calculator I think I am better off sticking with ET30.

    F11 Wheel Offset

    Quick question. I am considering buying some aftermarket alloy wheels. Current wheels are BMW OE size 8jx18, ET30 Car is a 520D SE The wheels I am looking at are very slightly wider at 8.5x18, but are available in ET30 or ET35. My question is which offset to go for, ET30 or ET35? TIA

    F10 535i Front Spring replacement DIY

    Many thanks. Use of a laser does seem OTT and I am struggling to believe that every specialist replacing suspension components has the kit on their shelf. I may well press ahead with fitting some new Koni 'Active' dampers. I have a laser that I might be able to use to help with the alignment but of course it lacks the mount (it's for astrophotography).

    Not sure whether this information in the TIS is specific to the VDC units.
