  1. Thanks Sam. Any idea what year or any particular model?
  2. Thanks Brent. Was hoping someone could put me onto replacement knuckles with a smaller OD.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  7. 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.

    E30 Air Con Recharge

    Hi. Just bought an E30 which is fitted with air con but it doesn't work. The last owner never used it. I'm assuming that at the very least the gas has leaked out. I have spoken to a few car air conditioning businesses and they tell me the only option is to upgrade the system to run R134a. Can someone tell me if this is my only option? I found the following article which suggests something different. http://www.rtsauto.com/how-to-recharge-the-ac-in-your-car-eg-used-will-be-e30-and-how-to-use-ac-manifold-gauges-and-pull-vacuum/ Cheers. Dean.
