    So, on the front, it should be a 20mm spacer with a 15mm bore adapter on the outside?

    Decided to go with 20 mm front and back, just now, then go further from there, got a set of direnza lowering springs 30mm, all round, do you guys think that will be alright with 19 inch tiger claws, how low are your cars?

    Do you have to get the centre hole bored out if you are using spacers?

    Watched a vid from the car life on you tube, on how to replace a crankshaft sensor, the guys problems sounded quite like mine ie, rough idle, stuttering up hills n stuff, but i have disconnected the battery jst now, will leave for a couple hours n go back to it, if its not that, i will buy an ecu, and crankshaft sensor, n fire it on, see if that helps, cheers

    No, i didn't know that would reset the systems, i took the ecu out for ten mins, got the serial number off it, then put it back in, it seems to have fixed the problem with the asc & abs lights, the petrol gauge is workin too, but, the car is still down on power, its intermittent, ill put the boot down and it will struggle then go fast for a sec then slow again, then other times i will get in and drive away and it'll work fine, its doing my head in, i have cleaned the maf sensor, dont know what else to do

    Looking for help, i jump started my 523i e39 2 weeks ago, i put the cables the wrong way round, now i have traction control and abs lights on, the speedo has stopped working, fuel gauge has a mind of its own, and power goes down and back up, have an idea what it could be, but trying to pin point it before i start throwing money at it, help please, thanks in advance, Derek.
