    Dealership tried to screw me.. advice on what to do?

    Bit of a long winded story, so I'll condense it to the key points: I bought a 2011 BMW M3 a couple of months ago from a main dealer (won't name and shame yet). I decided to get it up on a ramp, mostly out of curiosity as to what it's like underneath. To my horror it was raining oil from both...

    Thermostat W203 screw size issue

    I bought a Circoli Thermostat Product Code: 209220340 yesterday. It fits ok but the 2 holes to attach cable holders are the wrong size. Therefore the original screws don't fit. Should ECP/manufacturer not be providing new screws or is this a defect?

    Hello All, so I finished painting one of my new front wings last weekend and I think the clearcoat is now hard enough to allow me to fit it. I've managed, just, to remove the top two screws in the door recess, but just can't work out how to reach the bottom one. All the others on the wing will...

    Today I changed my car's brake discs and pads. But I had to drill out the disc retaining screws as even an impact hammer would not remove them. I didn't anticipate this happening so I had no replacement. So I just refitted with new parts minus the screw. But I would like to replace the screw...
