    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Today I... Pulled the HVAC control out of one of the 318s and replaced the caps on the board. Easy and works properly now. Drove it around and did an oil change. New headgasket and head appear to work. Shame about the fact it's a 318... Next to tackle on it; Remove a dent. Fix interior, it's all saggy. I think I have a complete tidy leather interior, so may chuck that in Attempt to make it tidy outside Sell it

    2001-2004 X5 - opinions wanted

    Mine blew the drivers park light bulb and a low beam bulb, had a regulator to window clip fail, cost nothing to sort that. Coming up to a year and 20,000km ownership. Currently at 259km. Will be needing to do rear control arm bushes eventually. My work e53 is now at 430km and has had a battery replaced in the last year, has covered approx 80,000km last year

    E36 tax starting

    Don't forget the Italian market e30 320iS... Typically all the coupes ran the sport suspension too. Have yet to see one without it. I think in some strange markets the coupe could be had with m40/43 and bouncy castle suspension. But anything we get here had the sport stuff

    e36 drums to discs

    There's no way to prove it originally had drums. Swap the rear arms over with the complete assemblies, bolts up, same brake lines etc Have done my 316 like this and the brake bias is still okay

    Cleaned the X5, 316, 318 #2 and hateful 520. Put the "new" head on 318 #2 after work yesterday. Forgot to get new valve cover gasket. Derp. Will give it a polish and sell it soon

    E36 328i coupe 'track' project

    Try find a z3m OE radiator. Better than a Fenix. I run an OEM radiator, not a problem. BC gold are good entry level, my personal favorite is the XYZ in that price range. Cool build man, keep up the good work

    All 318 coupes are iS, that just means it has m42/44 not 40/43 the kit etc was optional

    E39 535i 5HP-24 issues

    Yup. Having the battery off shouldn't clear the trans adaptions on the e39, might clear driver pattern adaptions but that'd be it.

    E39 535i 5HP-24 issues

    I would suggest clearing the adaptions since you have changed the box before you damage it
