    M20 885 Head

    Looking for an M20 885 head in good condition. One that isn't cracked or has been overheated. Happy for it to be bare. Cheers. Dean.

    M20 Engine Breather Hose

    Decided to replace the engine breather hose on my M20, the one that goes from the rocker cover to the throttle body. Bought a new Febi hose and it was too short on the throttle body end. Pictures below of what the new hose is like compared to the old one, and how little it goes onto the steel fitting. Thumbs up to Gavin at Euro-Italian. He got in two other hoses including genuine BMW and they were the same or worse. I've had to use the short hose but am not happy. Has anyone else had this problem? Cheers.
  3. Thanks Geoff. Unfortunately that won't fix my problem. On my car the bottom aluminium knuckle is hitting the extractors (when taking left hand bends hard). When I get some time in the next few weeks I'll head up to Brent's to sort through his stock to see what I can adapt. I'll let everyone know what I find. Cheers.
  4. That's a good question, which I don't know the answer to. I'll most likely change it, and see if they notice it for the WOF. I'm thinking that if I use factory made knuckles (from whichever car) without grinding or bashing anything then they should be safe. This could be one of those questions that you don't really want to know the answer to.
  5. Can't bring myself to hitting the extractors. I'd have to remove them to do that anyway which I want to avoid. Think I may replace the engine mounts. They're original items and may be contributing to the engine movement, and will then replace the steering knuckles with something smaller. Seems to be the tidiest, although not the least expensive, way to fix the problem.
  6. Cheers for that. I will look into it.
  7. Thanks Sam and Geoff.
  8. Thanks Sam. Any idea what year or any particular model?
  9. Thanks Brent. Was hoping someone could put me onto replacement knuckles with a smaller OD.
  10. Hi. The previous owner of my 325i E30 fitted extractors. When I take left hand corners hard, the extractors hit the bottom steering knuckle. It may hit in other places but it is very hard to see. I can however see where the aluminium steering knuckle has been rubbing on the extractors. I have checked the motor mounts and they seem fine. Can someone provide some advice on the best way to fix this problem (slowing down is not an option). The car is fitted with the factory steering rack and I do not want to change it at this stage. Cheers. Dean.
  11. Hi. Looking for a complete and working cruise control kit to fit my manual 325i. Cheers.

    E30 Radio Fault Code E99 Help

    Yes it is. Found out the E99 code is telling me to push the reset button on the head unit. It still has the "load" problem though.

    E30 Radio Fault Code E99 Help

    Hope not. Still be interesting to know what the code says.
  14. Hi. I have the business radio in my E30. It has the 10 CD stacker. Not long after I got the car the radio kept bringing up "load" on the radio display and would not play the CD's. Now it brings up error code E99. Can anyone tell me what this means or where I can find an explanation for this code? Cheers.
