  1. Finally got round to ordering set of eibach springs and rear discs and pads! Waiting by the door now until the nice postman brings me something I actually want lol

    Possible dumb question!

    Not saying they would, but seeing as they are factory built with the 2 piece ones I didn’t want to cause an issue with the single piece ones

    Thanks guys for your replies, I’m not overly concerned about the weight saving! It’s usually 5 up with a full tank of diesel! I don’t spose the middle of a brake disc is going to do much lol! At least if I fit the single piece ones I’m not gonna have issues thanks again Sam

  5. I have a 2011 520d - looking at replacing all the discs and pads as the rears are showing as needed in 3000 miles, but looking at the discs, they’re really bad, with a large lip on the edge and a lot of heat discolouration- so I’d be happier with the whole lot renewed and a fluid change, my ‘possible dumb question’ is this, the discs on the car have what looks like rivets holding the hub to the braking surface, the new discs appear to be one piece, is this the wrong disc for my car? There is a huge price difference between these and the next ones up, which do have the rivets!

    Will give that a go! Cheers!
  9. Any idea why only half my phone contacts can be accessed through the iDrive? Last 50% or so, are just dashes
  10. When I’ve put mine on front axle stands as I lower the car down I can see the nose of the car bend down on the stands - I guess there has to be some flex and the weight of the engine etc being in front of the stands high lights it?
  11. I tend to use the middle jacking point so haven’t noticed any creaking from mine
  12. To be honest, I only did the belt as it’s just past 100,000 miles, the rest of the FEAD looks to be in very good order, possibly already had the crank pulley done looking at it, so just changed the belt for my sake really - tensioner was nice and smooth and all bearings were quiet fingers crossed lol seems to be the thing to change it all at 100k though
  13. Done a mini service on the F10 today, and a drive belt I do the oil every 8k since the timing chain and turbo were changed, for the price of oil and filter, it’s peace of mind Air filter had done a little bit more than 8k (about 12k) but was surprisingly grubby!
  14. I used to work at an Alfa Romeo specialist- and the 159 had the bushes part of the ARB, the clamps were pressed together around the bar and bushes, - and wore out with alarming regularity! Powerflex made the bushes and the clamps easily came apart with a bit of gentle persuasion!
