    Castrol Edge 5w-40 is BMW Longlife-01 approved. Their 5w-30 is not. I use the 5w-40 because I'm in FL and because of the LL-01 approval. 10w may be too heavy for you in the winter

    Have a read about the shark tune.

    But I'll tell you what. I flashed the DME with Balidawg's help to the most recent BMW software and man this thing drives freaking great!!! It pulls hard and all...

    So I pulled the DISA today to check it and make sure my engine wasn't going to ingest a metal pin. It is actually in great shape and is the updated DISA part number, which was another reason I...

    Which coils did you go with? I bought Delphi, since I read some good stuff about them. They are great so far. Added a noticeable pep to the car. I didn't have misfires before except for the 2800...

    Just watched a youtube video on how to test it -- apply a vacuum and then 12v to the plug. So I should probably pull the DISA and test it. I already bought o-rings to replace the original. It...

    Yeah, I didn't dive into the phone conversation enough, and the way I wrote it sounded totally normal. But basically, when I get lectured on what a ZHP is after I called inquiring about a ZHP, I...
  10. Terrible loss of power 4000 rpm and beyond

    Hey guys. Had to ask this after today. I can't take it anymore.

    When I downshift and punch it to pass someone or merge on a highway, the car pulls great until exactly 4000 rpm, where it literally...

    They can charge what they want, but I don't agree with you about their attitude. Back when I was looking for a ZHP earlier this year, a few of their cars popped up in my search. A blue one was listed...

    No point in replacing the vapor barrier if it isn't torn. Just wasting time and money at that point.

    It's a good idea to have extra butyl on hand, but I find that if you separate the vapor barrier...

    I went through the same thing with Geico down there in South Florida. My mom's 535i got totalled and they were undervaluing by thousands. They use everything from picking cheap, crappy comps and...

  16. Rover/BMW Electrochromic Mirror with Compass and Homelink

    This is a "fully loaded" :biggrin rearview mirror. I've been hanging onto this for a while, but now don't need it. It is out of a Rover, but these mirrors are basically the same as BMW, aside from...

    Yeah makes sense. I figured the frame shop may be able to pull it back to spec, instead of you doing all that work. Of course, if it's just a control arm, that's easy. I thought you replaced the...

    I would only do a 4 wheel alignment. And it is most likely the front tires were toe out that caused your wear other than excessive camber. There isn't much adjustment for the camber as it is. The...

    This is your problem. Something is bent (subframe?) And that wheel is pushed forward or backwards, thus throwing off your thrust angle. The toe was consequently altered and the alignment guy maxed...

    Your thrust angle is way off. It can be related to the toe being off, but that can also indicate the rear subframe is off or wheelbase is uneven left to right. It's also possible they aligned the...
