    Meet Bonnie the 2nd

    Got some ok shots during one of the sunrises this week. Been enjoying the machine a lot. Things that need doing is likely a repacement of the tensioner or idler pulley. The tensioner wobbles a bit during idle (completely stable at >1k rpm) - im guessing either the bearings on that is out or the bearings in idler pulley causing belt to pull tensioner laterally - who knows. BMWorkshop said its not terrible but should eventually be replaced - so will look at sorting that soon.

    The ride height screams douche bag to me... best to stay away haha. Surely sorting out those white leather seats in sad condition would be a priority over any other modifications!? I guess not...
  6. looking a bit deeper, you can get one with half the kms for 11k asking so probably 9-10k from dealers, and there is one for like 50kms for 12-13k. bargain cars for sure.

    Wheel speed sensor issues

    I would do a continuity test from the module plug before jumping in and removing the module. Not uncommon to have a broken/chafed wire

    Just remove the module. Unplug it and 6 screws. You can still drive the car and the brakes will still work... but that is still illegal (your choice) I can give you a phone number for a repairer up here in Auckland. My other contact has closed down now. Pm me or phone 021921377

    Do you recommend anyone? I'm located in Taranaki, dont suppose you know of anyone locally who is capable of doing such a repair? Do they need the whole unit or just the electrical side?

    Wheel speed sensor issues

    That's a sure bet it's the module. I was going to suggest taking the module off and putting it in the fridge. The module can be repaired.

    Wheel speed sensor issues

    Yup. The code will only go away if its fully cold, like leaving it overnight then it comes on after a few minutes of driving. Would the heat in the engine bay be causing the module to play up?

    E87 130i - How is it as a daily?

    Preventative maintenance was dealer speak for fleecing when I was in the industry. We tried to do a lot of preventative maintenance.

    E91 Air Conditioning Issue

    Hey Guys, I recently was installing a new headunit and part of the process I removed the panel which holds the start button (I replaced the start buttont to red) and air conditioning vents. Unplugged everything (air conditioning cables to vent) and plugged back in and now when I have the air-con turned on (buttons all light up on air-con screen) nothing blows out from the vents. I can hear it loudly like you would expect when using normally and at full speed but cannot feel any air anyway. Vents are also open :) Any suggestions why this may be occurring? Hope I make sense. Cheers
