    Thoughts on the E87?

    Timing chains, oil leaks, etc etc etc. Pretty notorious (particularly if you compare it to a japanese 2l 4 pot with the same output )

    123D or a 130i, the only reason to get one of the shitty 4 pots petrols is because you do not like your wife (This is how you form your argument for getting a decent one ) My 130i manual averages 8.6l/100km (and I dont go out of my way to drive economically.... You can either have a unreliable 4 pot that works its ass off hauling around a 1.4 ton hatch back, or a reliable smooth 6 that moves it without breaking a sweat.

    Ceramic coating. Its legit. Slapped it on 6 weeks ago - Sonax Profiline. Got it filthy, snow foamed it, got rained on, then the sun came out.... No water spots, no polishing, shineyAF!

    Quick Questions

    Anyone ever replaced the bush on an E8/9x blower motor? Ive lubed mine previously using a light machine oil, and it solved it for 6 months, now its squeeking again. Spending $200 on a new assembly seems crazy when its just the bush 😕 Tempted to try pull it out and replace it with a bearing.

    Has any one done NOS on an E63,64 650i

    I remember doing it in a Mini clubman in a bar in Chch a few years ago, walked out the door and went full speed over a kerb and little garden, hilarious.

    The new 1 series

    Kill it with fire. FWD and looks like a Daewoo. This is why they lost the war!

    The new 1 series

    Yeah I though the same, it might just be Type R civic style though with multiple exhaust tips for the added thrust.

    Modding the Hell out of 355i DCT

    Exhaust, a flash, and a BOV is not modding the hell out of

    certed for coilovers, lsd etc, and relatively low ks. Be a good buy for 7k, just needs all the nonsense pulled off it and a manual box installed!

    Nope, 8.7l/100km (or 27mpg) mostly open road is what I do. It sits at like 6l at 100ishkmh. My 1.6 corolla used more gas

    I average 8.7L/100km with the 130, and dont nana it, I thought it was good on gas (for a 3L hot hatch) Stock suspension is definitely crashy on some roads, there are fixes though!

    E91 2008 - locked out of car

    The blade key is mechanical is it not? It should open the drivers door at least.
  20. As per title, whats out there?
  21. Yeah small turboshaft, used to drive backup generators/hydraulic pumps/aircon etc. Some setups bleed air from the APUs compressor for starting the main engine
  22. Thats not a MiG 23 engine, it might be the APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) out of one though. MiG 23 engine would be as long as an E30, and doesnt make shaft hp, it makes thrust.
