  1. Mines all good now and works as it should off the key or the buttons in the car
  2. My 04 330 vert is still on the original springs but its only done 73k I had an issue with the roof the other day not wanting to open and the red light flashing between the open & close buttons, its fixed itself and working fine today so not sure what that was, a sticky censor perhaps ?
  3. Convertible roof jerky operation

    I recently had a problem with mine, it wouldn't do anything at all so i started googling to get answers Not sure if it's of any use to you but i found this pdf on the roof file:///C:/Users/Dunk/Downloads/ConvertibleTopManual (2).pdf
  4. pot hole took me out

    Hope you get paid out, i'd have a very close look at the wheel and the tyre, especially if the wheels are cast Aluminium. The roads are a joke, even major roads inc motorways are in a shocking state
  5. Does this sound reasonable?

    Sounds steep to me

  8. Sent my spare key off to get a new battery fitted as it doesn't open or shut the locks, they also test fix any other faults https://www.themasterlocksmith.com/product/bmw-key-repair/

  16. Splitters

    Found a nice splitter by JH parts but they want nearly £400 for it posted to my address. I then found what looks nearly identical but in the USA for £180, sadly the shipping price quoted on ebay is ridiculous at over £200 !!!!! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/99-06-BMW-E46-3-Series-M-Tech-M-Sport-Only-Front-Bumper-Lip-Carbon-Fiber-CF-HM-/371468692599#vi-content

  21. Wheel alignment

    I found some alignment figures on E46 fanatics and cant post it but here are the numbers i've copied from it Front toe ------------ 14 minutes +/- 8 minutes Front camber ---- 43 minutes +/- 20 minutes Caster -------------- 5 degrees 47 minutes +/- 30 minutes Rear toe ------------ 16 minutes +/- 6 minutes Rear camber -----2 degrees 4 minutes +/- 15 minutes I had my car on a recommended 4 wheel alignment and dont get why their system says my rears are out and need adjusting My figures as follows Front toe ----------- 9 minutes total Front camber ---- 1 degree both sides Caster -------------- 5 degrees 47 minutes Rear toe ----------- 16 minutes total Rear Camber -- 1 degree 41 minutes, both sides the same I had the front toe adjusted as they were out and had worn the osf tyres outer edge but the rears tyre wear wise look pretty good so i left them alone, not sure if i was being conned out of a chunk of cash or if their machine has the right figures in it or are the figures i found wrong ?

  24. Braided brake lines

    I don't really need braided lines either and was just weighing up the options as i'm guessing a set of braided will possibly be cheaper than buying OE. Ran out of time yesterday so will have a look today to see what it needs
  25. Braided brake lines

    Not interested in colours, according to BMW when they replaced the airbag they did an inspection and said the flexi hoses were cracking and needed replacing. It'll be on the ramp tomorrow to be checked at the same time we do the cam cover seal and the CCV kit
