    Hi, all

    You maybe recognise me from previous post regarding my estoril blue 118d m sport I recently PX it for this 125i! Directly from bmw and all I can say its a different level than 118d even it was remaped ! Love this car and looking forward to mod it, I have taken everything off my old 118d so hopefully all should fit on this one ? One think I am concern will the eibach springs work with my new 125i? Anything to look out for ? Or I should no also how often is it good to change oil in these 2.0turbo petrol engines ?

    Wow! Over and above, putting us all to shame with brand and model loyalty
    I’m sure the 125i will be a silent terrier

    I won’t ask on the plans & mods.....

    Enjoy

    Nice.
    Pretty rare the 125i version. What’s the output of that engine? The F30 model had the 320i and 328i version, same basic engine. 184bhp and 240bhp respectively of my memory serves me.

    car looks very nice

    as it is an approved used car and has a very good warranty included be careful what Mods you do to it as you can invalidate the warranty with something as simple as a remap

    That’s sounds nicely fruity already.
    I’d think twice before doing anything to the car if it has a full 12 month dealer warranty. This covers pretty much everything.
    Imagine if there is a fault with the drive train, you’ve lowered the car and try to claim for a new gearbox/driveshaft etc. They will easily decline the claim due to the car being tampered with, the lowering “could” have impacted upon additional strain to the drive components etc.....
    For me not worth any changes l, unless very quickly reversible, until the warranty is out.

    Thats a shame yeah I cld anytime take the springs out thats not a problem in case something goes wrong, do you think the 118d eibach 35mm will work with 125i?

    It's quite common on some models. Try starting away in 2nd to see if that smooths thing out - the car'll be capable of that all day long. Has to be worth a go, surely. :whistling: :D
