I am due for the brake fluid change soon. I have looked for a DIY for the service for a while and am not finding much. Do you have a suggested link? Would you do this yourself or pay the dealer? I am handy enough to change brakes, fuel filter, or oil. Not sure how difficult this is. Thanks for your help.
I bought new style 128 rims from wheels and caps along with ordering Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110 tires from the tirerack. In talking to the tirerack, they are on backorder. So, I called Hankook USA to find out when they will ship and they said production would be June 2010 and they would arrive in the states around September 2010. I really don't want to wait that long to get the wheels set up. My only next option price wise for the 285/30/21 and 245/35/21 is to go with Pirelli P-Zero Nero's which I can get from onlinetires.com for $1211.71 ( Almost $400 more than the Hankooks) or I can get 295/25/21 and 255/30/21 Falken FK452 for $701.00. Any advice? I have not heard too much about Falken's and I am worried about 2 things: 1)How much easier will I bend a rim with the 25 profile vs the 30 and 2)How noisey will the Falkens be? Any experience here?........Never thought getting new tires and rims would be so hard, but the 21's are very hard to come by. Thanks in advance
I have a 2004 BMW 745i and live in Louisville, KY. I am fairly new to the site, but see that you know the most of anyone here. I would like to add you as a friend.
I also have a question....If I put style 128 21" wheels on my 745 to replace the style 95 19" is there a way to re-calibrate the speedometer through the programming in the instrument cluster? If not, how much faster will my speedo read? Thanks in advance.
