  1. Rain/Light sensor issues

    My auto wipers have started playing up, did a bit of research into what might be the issue. Possibly the clear gel holding the module or the sensor itself. Took it apart and found the issue with the sensor (pic below) so have ordered a second hand one from ebay, bmw quoted me £205 plus vat!!! Question is do i need to code the one i have coming from ebay? Maybe solder the old one back together?

  3. My 330I Touring

    Thought i'd resurrect this from the dead, still beating around in the old girl. Had the dreaded rust taken out of the front wings last month, sadly they had gone too far for repair. Had the bonnet redone aswell as i wasn't happy with the last job. An inspection 1 last week revealed a few issues so will work my way through those asap. Brake lines corroded, diff bush needs changing etc. A set of style 216's would be good.
  4. Changing touring rear glass

    Hi all The heater elements have perished in the rear glass on my wagon, has anyone ever changed the rear glass before. I'm sure the wiring would need soldering and re working from a newer panel. Been searching youtube high and low but can't find anything. If anyone can shed some wisdom on this it would be great but i'm guessing it's a nightmare job?
  5. Drivers seat noise

    I used to adopt this rule in my old clio cup, it's a bit more refined in the bm. Will investigate more when i get a chance.
  6. long time lurker. 330i Sport touring

    Looks good, I wish my engine bay looked that clean. Those winter stealies are awesome
  7. Drivers seat noise

    Hi all, had a search but can't find much related to my issue. My drivers seat makes a clunk noise under braking, front and back rather than side to side. Anyone else have this issue? It sounds like a spring or something metal rather than plastic if that makes sense? It's annoying the sh!t out of me. I've had the seat out but not had a chance to take it apart yet to investigate. Cheers
  8. OEM BBS CH on E46

    Is anyone running the OEM fitment for BBS CH 18x8.5 ET 35? I'm wondering how they would fit my touring, might be a struggle at the rear without arch work.
  9. OEM facelift chrome grills

    As above after genuine chrome grills with no damage. Mine are falling apart.
  10. Touring rear ambers

    I got mine on ebay mate, keep plodding on
  11. Spacers ? ( topics merged )

    12mm on my touring at the rear and no rubbing. The coupes have more clearance aswell.
  12. 245 tyres on a 255 rim.

    ^^^this. I run a 245/35/18 tyre on my rears and they're hardly any different.
  13. Why do BMW do thicker springpads if its not a common problem? They're not made to level cars out, they're for different models. I have the 14.5mm one which is from the xi models iirc. Just so happens it works, cheap fix. If you took a properly corner weighted set of coilover a off a car they'd probably all be different heights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Interior dash lights issue

    I'm not the only one then. Always wondered what that tiny sensor was for. Stuck my finger on it and it dimmed down Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Interior dash lights issue

    Hi all Bit of a strange one. I have an intermittent problem with the clock/radio and dash lights, they fade out and pop back to full brightness. Doesn't happen a lot unless i don't notice it much but when i do it bugs the hell out of me. I mainly notice it when it's daylight, tried changing the dimmer switch up and down but it still does it. Any thoughts would be great
