  1. Buy the way. Don't bash any alloy components when working on these. Use proper ball joint pullers.
  2. I just looked at this and it's basically the same as what we used to do. Just keep a few zip ties and a bungy cord to hold things out of the way if need be.
  3. Welcome to copy and paste. We used to do it a bit differently on a hoist https://www.google.com/search?q=BMW+E87+front+shock+removal&rlz=1C1CHZL_enNZ752NZ752&oq=BMW+E87+front+shock+removal+&aqs=chrome..69i57.21870j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#kpvalbx=_nuP_XszkCtXf9QOIyr7QBw32
  4. Just used it twice to antifoul my launch as in the blue you can see in the photos
  5. You will need the keys for both to do the swap or a locksmith
  6. Service managers have to account for workshop profitability by the bean counters upstairs. There has to be a spread of warranty & retail work to account for monthly figures. That is why dealership hourly rates are higher than interdependent repairers and your local garage.
  7. Only if it doesn't interfere with retail work at the higher rate and profit on parts
  8. Not really. Unless things have changed recall & warranty work is only paid for as a proportion of the retail hourly rate with no, or very little allowance on parts used. It is only paid for at factory set times in 99% of all cases.
  9. I only go there to check the obituaries to see if my names in there
  10. Try talking about a subject and the later on open your lpad and see what adds come up when you look at the Herald or Stuff
  11. What have you been charged to diagnose the fault and what were you told ?
  12. B.M.W Ltd

    XHP V3

    Probably not the sensor. More likely running outside monitored specs, either too lean or too rich on that bank
  13. True story.... in 55 years of driving I have never ever had a flat tyre while driving or even been in a car with a flat tyre
