    New wheels don't fit-advice please

    A 245/40/18 is approx 50mm smaller in diameter than your new wheels/tyres. That's two inches away from that strut. Everything else tyre wise would then match your 17s. It's more important than spacers. The 40 is a ratio of the width, so by changing the width you're also changing the diameter. You need 245/40/18 or if you want a higher profile: 235/45/18

    Your new wheels are 10mm closer and you're only pushing them out by 20mm, that's 10mm in overall, look at how much that strut is hitting that tyre... You seriously need new tyres and then look at rubbing afterwards

    Here's your new wheel/tyre combo with 20mm spacers, You've lost 20mm of arch gap and haven't pushed the wheels out much compared to your 17s

    He'd keep his higher profile tyres.

    I don't know, the tyre size is your first problem. Looking at the strut on your new wheel, you might need more than 20mm. 6.5% speedo error is too much imo. To do it properly, I reckon you need new tyres and probably 10mm spacers.

    The tyre size on the new wheels is wrong, they need to be 245/40R18s. They would knock your speedo out by 6.5% and move the wheel 10mm closer to the strut if they fitted. With the right tyres, you might not need spacers at all.
  9. I've had this, driving for twenty minutes or so and it asking for coolant after a recent coolant change, despite appearing to be topped up. I added more coolant.

    please help

    Pre LCI gearboxes had a mechanical shift mechanism and LCI had an electronic shifter. Found that out the hard way.

    Frequent oil changes and fix things as they arise. If you neglect a BMW they get expensive.
