  1. The 2nd one sounds like centre support bearing.. It was probably failing and the whack over the ditch probably knocked it partially loose. The first one, not sure. Could be a ball joint/bushing/arm etc..
  2. 18” 8.5j ET15 on a Touring?

    Ouch! If the arches are clean atm i'd be tempted to leave them alone and fit camber arms instead..
  3. 18” 8.5j ET15 on a Touring?

    Put the ET15's on the front. But they'll be more concave I think so might look weird! lol. If you put the ET15's on the rear you might have to put camber arms on I think. According to willtheyfit.com the ET15 wheels will sit 35mm further out than MV1's (18x8.5J ET50).
  4. Alpina Poor Steering

    Sorry.. FCAB - Front Control Arm Bushes (sometimes called the lollipop bushes). RTAB - Rear Trailing Arm Bushes.. The RTAB's sit at the end of the arm that goes out in front of the rear hub assembly into the body in front of the rear wheel well.
  5. Alpina Poor Steering

    Sounds like FCABs.. While parked up grab the wheels at 3 and 9 o'clock and try pulling the wheel back and forth. Should be no play but sounds like there will be. But if it feels like the steering is coming from the rear and you're constantly having to re-correct to go straight then it'll be RTAB's..
  6. E46 Vert - My Build Thread

    Ummm.. They're not clubsport splitters! They're CSL style splitters.. Admittedly there's not much difference but CS ones are more "boxy", not quite as sharp as they go into the middle of the car and usually wrap all the way around the corner of the bumper back to the wheel well. These are CS splitters for reference:
  7. Black 330d Sport Touring

    Whatever you do, don't mention sprint booster on this forum!!
  8. PDC fault please help!!!

    Where did you get the sensor from? This usually happens when you replace with aftermarket sensors..
  9. 330ci Front washer jets not working!

    You probably didn't reconnect the wires tight enough and worked their way loose? Make sure they're pushed in all the way and try again. Drain the tank and remove the pump and give it a test
  10. Eibach pro kit springs will lower the front a little, and barely touch the rear. Sportline springs will lower the front a decent amount and the rear a little - deffo the best look of the 2 while still being drive-able without significant clearance issues. You wont need control arms/drop links with lowering springs. They're a direct replacement. The only extra thing to consider is a full alignment once it's done.
  11. Dashcam Wiring

    Cigarette lighter is permanently live on these cars - could tap into that? Or piggyback of that fuse?

    You have to upload a seriously tiny one! I think it's 125x125 pixels. If you're trying a normal picture on your phone it's probably ~2500x1900 pixels. So wont work!
  13. Happens all the time and from what I've seen usually so long as it's not performance enhancing and/or makes the car more desirable to thieves (so coilovers) they let it slide. At the most, they knock off the difference in the cost of the parts between the aftermarket ones and OEM ones. Tbh I fully understand GJN's position and agree to an extent. I'd be so p*ssed at the cost of a set of OEM set springs that i'd just stick my middle finger up at my insurer and fit the Eibach ones anyway and say some fool from this owners club on the t'internet sold them to you as OEM springs!
