Bought a new car cover. The old one disintegrated after two years of exposure to SoCal sun every weekday.

Good to know! I plan to run that exact tire setup down the road when I get Eibachs. I already have 225/40 up front.

19x9.5 on rear?

I just bought some rims from a friend whose brother owns an auto body shop. They are 19x8.5 in the front and 19.9.5 in the back. They're from an M car, I'm pretty sure they're from an M3, ive seen on youtube with a 135i with those dimensions, was wondering if they would fit without rolling the fenders or extra modifications. i have stock suspension and not lowered.
<-- theres the link to the youtube video. want to get some input before i go pay for 4 new tires. I have like a week before i'm going to just say screw it and do it. any input would be appreciated.

I don't have all the details, but I don't think the offset on M3 wheels is compatible with our suspension, without mods.
Certainly do some more digging.

Replaced the passenger side headlight with a used one as my original one had a damaged LED eyebrow, and the PO had unplugged the driver's side one too... I was troubleshooting why the AHL error wouldn't go away until I noticed missing screws from the SMC cover - clearly something was up. Damn eBay seller had opened the SMC module and taken out the board. Swapped over the board from my old headlight and all is well!

It looks so damn good! Totally changes the appearance of the car at night. However, now the "new" headlight is fogging up a lot :/

Thanks! Nothing super fancy. Just the typical M3 arm, Dinan camber plates, Bilstein B12 pro-kit setup you see a lot around here.

Got her back from the dealer for the recalls - hopefully it won't end like up like some E90 I saw on the highway burning bright.

Immediately back under the knife once I got home. Had to replace a crank position sensor and my large DISA. Throughout the week I had been getting a crank position sensor code, and it ran funny - sometimes stalling when it fell to idle. Tach was all over the place too.

Large DISA just fell apart lol, it was one I rebuilt and JB welded together. Tried my luck on eBay, ordered a used on and it came working just fine!

Was the 1er starting to idle rough which prompted you to change the plugs?

My mechanic only replaced the coil pack and plug in cylinder #2 only.

The 1er would misfire when the engine was cold and during acceleration in the morning. After about a week of that, then I got the "Engine Service Soon" indicator turning on a off and the engine felt like it was going stall on idle.

If I had an OBD2 reader, it probably would have told me #2 was going south.

After some Googling, the coil pack typically lasts around 80k miles. Guess I got a bad one.

My car came with the adaptive headlights. If I were to buy the non-adaptive headlights, will that cause any problems? Can the adaptive headlights error be coded out?

I replaced my cabin air filter in my 135i today. Honestly it was the easiest cabin air filter I've replaced on a car; I was very happy.
