  1. The only way i can think of thats cheap and easy is to buy for £10 a bluetooth transmitter that plugs into the cigarette lighter and you tune your radio to pick it up,ebay has them.

    Best oil

    TRIPLE QX 5W 40 SYNTHETIC OIL 3.5 LITRES I use this but no longer than 6 months,thats just me and its not too expensive on ebay or motor factors PS my cars the same and at 210000 miles
  3. I have a black on black standard 330ci se,square setup,6 speed manual,18 inch standard rims style 32 i think,mostly unmodified ie some carbon fibre different head unit. I am located in Hastings East sussex.
  4. The spare tyre and tools plus battery -always useful

  6. I took my car in to the garage to have the prop shaft donut,center bearing replaced,when i got it back it was clunking and vibrating so back it went,and the rear joint at the diff end needed doing as grease was flying out! Finally got it back perfect !Got some beers for the guys,i wasnt charged labour on the second visit just the part (£215),anyway the total cost was £600 all bmw parts. Just glad to have it sorted its my daily. Today i fitted new rear brakes discs/shoes/shocks/springs as one was broken.Its been an expensive few days.
  7. Scraped through the MOT,a lot of advisories -rear brakes,rear springs corroded,rear struts just legal,anyway its a win and i am gathering parts for when the weather will let me fix it.
  8. start at the beginning why did you change cam shaft sensor
  9. i found this on the web https://jalopnik.com/internet-unsympathetic-to-bmw-owner-with-incorrectly-pa-509231773
  10. The back seat only needs to be removed to access the fuel pump,i believe its a quick easy job to replace it
  11. I took my 330ci in for the steering wheel air bag recall,it was done at bmw Hailsham east sussex.Its a rather nice dealership free coffee and lots of cars to look at,The i 8 hybrid looks good but it was a poor colour choice but comfy interior.Well i also got a free inspection and the offer of a car wash which i declined,the car got a clean bill on the checkup not bad,now at 205,000 miles.
  12. Here is some other info it may lead you to a result http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=137365&highlight=key+program+hold
  13. It seems like a specific wiring problem to the light
