F10 528i mods and maintenance (Pics)

New battery day today. Total paid for 105 AH AGM plus battery registration was $390.
Symptoms' was hesitating to start in the morning and a quick battery check showed the life of the battery down to 63%.
Plenty of places asking north of $440 and some even being cheeky to quote that price for the smaller 95ah version. So don't pay too much !

After searching around calling MULTIPLE workshops i've come to the conclusion. Its WAY cheaper to do this in boleh land. A quick look around I found a workshop that

1. Stock the parts
2. Will do the install
3. Alingment

TYREPLUS - ERA MAJU AUTOMOBIL
23, Jalan Permatang 8, Taman Desa Jaya, 81100 Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia

Total paid $491 and thats WITH install and Alingment !

Pretty much EVERY single WS in sg wanted in excess of $750+ WITHOUT alingment and GST not included yet !

Personal review of the WS in JB
1. Nice clean and modern looking
2. Foreman seemed to know his stuff plenty of eur cars around
3. Open to neg and HAPPY to meet and greet new customers.
4. Go early enuff and you get priority !

Hi there bro, so it is safe to say in sg to replace shock absorbers will coast about $750 without alignment? I just got a used B4 and plan to change from the stock absorber due to leak.
 
Depends on what your buying and replacing,
B4 generally 200-300/Pc
Top mounts approx 120/piece
Dust cover+bump stop generally 30/pc
Alingment is generally $80 thereabts
installation is generally 200 or so
 
So its been a while and the car has crossed its 10th year. Decided to spring for a different oil see how it works out.

Amsoil Eur Formula from Meta aka pitstop at sin min has my back as always. Paid $188 total. As always service is excellent with only worn tyres and a bonus screw in another tyre found !

And so off to finally change tyres. The PS4 tyres have been rotated every service interval font back left to right star whatever pattern and thats helped it last for nearly 60,000kms.

Frankly if not for the screw found in 1 tyre I could have gone another 6 months.

New rubber is the next iteration, PS5 same size 245/40/19 all round. No complaints from the latest UHP tyre.

Hi bro, nice thread and nice ride!

Noticed that you mentioned stage 1 BM3 was most bang for buck. But your recommended a custom tune instead of the OTS map, was the OTS map not as good? Did you end up getting a custom stage 2 tune or still used OTS?

Also, how was the xHP tune? Worth it for daily driving?

Was the Eibach significantly different from the H&R springs?

Bro, you used all same size tyres for front and back? Any effect on performance? I'm on 245 on front and 275 on back. How much did u pay for PS5 245/40/19 tyres?

Yup same size front and back. There's no performance gain whatsoever only aesthetics if you're wider in the back.

Same size tyres means all tyres can be rotated front back side to side etc, and will last a lot longer
