    Quick Questions

    The angel eyes on my E91 are being weird. Often neither side angel eyes work, but then sometimes both sides work fine. It looks like they have LEDs fitted, very white. Is there something in the control module that turns the lights off if it detects they are LED but resets later? There are no error codes on the dash or in idrive.

    Random (BMW) pic of the day

    I think this one is actually a Photoshop exercise - it's a UK number plate, but B12ALP was never issued.

    1M trademe thoughts ?

    Wasn’t the 850CSi also “engineered” by motorsport? But it never received the M status .... perhaps back then Motorsport understood what “motorsport” meant? Rather than having their balls pulled along by the marketing department nowdays?

    1M trademe thoughts ?

    If Porsche stuck a Boxster engine in a 911 body and called it a GT3 Porsche owners would never buy that car. BMW does it to a 1 series - an ugly one at that (Z4 engine in a 1 body) and all the BMW fan boys go crazy over the car and thinks it’s the bees knees. It’s not a M car just a marketing spin. No one will ever convince me otherwise.

    Diff Seals, BMW vs OEM vs Generic

    Only had one problem with VR and that was a headgasket along time ago. Used their diff seals a couple of times. I have 2x VR output seals\rings with that part no if you want them - $30 incl postage if you want them

    More carbon fiber goodness on the way! I'm a bit fed up with how the oem panels fit behind the cage (they're not perfect). The only real fix is to remove the panels and replace them. I already have carbon fiber rear armrests which'll look quite nice on the panels. I'll also fit the oem speakers, they're quite clever how they screw together!

    Diff Seals, BMW vs OEM vs Generic

    I'm giving my 210mm LSD a tidy up (removing 30 years of gunk off the outside) before installing it into my e28. In doing so I'm replacing the seals. What're people's thoughts on genuine BMW vs, OEM, name brand (e.g. Victor Reinz) or popping down to my local bearing/seal shop? My understanding is, is that they're just a relatively normal seal and I just need to match the ID and OD and mostly match the thickness (currently running a 10mm instead of 9mm input seal). Output shaft, 76X50X10, 33107510289 Input shaft, 50x80x9, 33121213949 And of course a new locking ring 33121205138. Anything else I'm missing?

    Quick Questions

    Whilst I'm comfortable doing smaller pieces, I'm not sure I'll be able to achieve a finish comparable to a proper spray gun on an area as large and prominent as the bonnet. I have sprayed bits of doors and was mostly successful (as well as can be expected with new paint vs 30 years of fade). I feel that from a result vs time/effort view it's easier to pay someone to do it properly.

    What's up with the watermark on the pci Kelvin? Looks like you paid the service station for a staged pic. 😎
  22. What are you trying to achieve anyway? Do not think there are any other alternatives for E-series cars.

    AWESOME! Look forward to seeing you at some events soon.
  26. What a pain. Any other user friendly apps with hardware that aren't as pricey but have the same perks? Otherwise I'll bite the bullet and go with Carly. I suppose it's not too expensive. Sorry for going off topic @Species 8472
