  1. Thanks lads!! They set it off really nicely I’m well happy with them... the front wheels are a little close to the shocks, as they’re an inch wider... but there should be no movement between those points so shouldn’t cause any problems. Just need to get a set of BMW badges and centre caps now and make sure they fit!
  2. Hi guys!!! So I phoned up Rimstyle and spoke to a chap called Toby who was very helpful... They basically recommend 245/35 on the rears and 225/40 on the front. The tyre walls stay the perfect depth to keep the ratios correct but just gives a slightly wider tread on the rear for better grip under acceleration. After feeling a lot happier once I spoke to them with what decision to make I just went for it and ordered them! So I ordered the Bola B17’s 18” 8.5J... I ordered them as a package with Dunlop Sportmax (245/35 rears 225/40 fronts). So I got them inflated
  3. So the profiles are different from front to rear but so is the tread width, so the 215/40 front and the 245/35 rear, both actually have basically the exact overall tyre diameter (it’s because although you think 35 is automatically a lower profile... it would be only if the tread width was the same) in a nut shell 40% of 215 is the same as 35% of 245. So all of the new wheels will be 8.5J I think I might just go for the 225/40 tyres. I’ll give them a bell tomorrow and talk to them to get their opinions too
  4. Hopefully going to order the wheels/tyres this weekend... at the moment I’ve got. FRONT 18” 7,5 ET49 - 215/40 R18 REAR 18” 8,5 ET52 - 245/35 R18 The wheels I’m likely to get are going to be 18” 8,5 all round. But I’m stuck on which tyre size to go for... if I go for... FRONT 225/40 R18 RRAR 245/35 R18 ...then it stays same circumference ratios as they are now... but the website is suggesting 225/40 R18 all round so am a bit unsure what to select?!?! are there any tyre boths on here??
  5. Yes mate those are the ones... having to finance though, no chance I can afford those up front haha!! The best price I found on them, with tyres was from rimstyle.com... what other places would be good for alloys? i done a little photoshop, I don’t think it does the wheels justice but it’s sort of what they’ll look like ha! Before and possible after...
  6. Thanks guys, this is why I love this forum so much! I’ve posted on a couple 1 series forums recently but just get stupid responses or no responses... nothing helpful anyway!!! See with here, I’ve been away for some time, and I come back, not even with a Honda, and straight away I’m welcomed back in and I get proper conversation!! Love it!!! Nice work, 370 miles from £40 is really good going mate. Definitely feel that it’s much safer for Dexter (the boy) in the back... with the deck I had to buy a make shift bracket that I bolted to the back of the rear seat to provide some anchor p
  7. Yeah really nice looking cars I think... and 400miles per £60 tank I can’t complain... compared to the 280 miles per £60 tank in the deck It’s a 2.0 manual 141bhp, RWD obviously... it’s a 118d sport but I think it could do with looking a bit sportier lol!!
  8. Hi guys, so I still have the deck but it’s sitting on the drive looking sorry for itself right now. I decided that I wanted something a bit more tame as the wife is pregnant with our second, and I do some food delivering for my friends take away on a Friday and Saturday evening so I wanted something better on fuel... I ended up ignoring most of what I “needed” and bought myself a 1 Series Coupé it is a 118d though so it is a lot better on fuel I suppose, and tax was £30 for the year so that’s a win too. Not sure how popular this forum is now but
  9. HI GUYS!!! Quick question for you, well 2 part question... in neutral foot off clutch it makes a horrific rough cluttery noise, apply clutch and noise goes... that’s the clutch bearing isn’t it? also there was a trader on here a while ago selling decent clutch kits at a good price, is he still about does anyone know? Can’t find the traders area on the forum
  10. Yeah that’s what I want it for, to complete my double din install lol... I’ve got a guy on Facebook that claims he has the whole lot in one bundle so just waiting on photos from him. If his lot is no good I may take it off your hands, I’ll keep you posted
  11. Yeah I guess that makes sense, about the distance being governed by the projector itself. Might even be due to the fact my HIDS are cheap Ebay buys, don’t want too spend big bucks on top HID bulbs and ballasts for them to not make a difference though. I guess it’s all about trying out different options, taking risks and seeing what works.
  12. Yes mate... mines knackered and split half way around... don’t mean to be picky but what condition is it in buddy? what have you got now instead of the OEM?
  13. Hi guys, just after some bits just to liven it up a bit really... ideally from the same person but let’s see who’s got what. aerial steering wheel head unit surround (black plastic with the pocket space at the bottom) front seat head rests thanks in advance guys!
