That's simply not true. The speedometers on our Audi and Acura are both spot on, and my Touareg reads 2 mph low. However, all BMW speedos are intentionally set to read high. My X1 speedo was off...

Sounds like you've spent a lot of time on this. I've been through it, so I feel your pain. Literally! I still think you need to unscrew the bumper cover, pull it forward and work from behind. If...

I think so, too. I always liked the Touareg Ok, but the R Line bits just give a little something extra.

Saying goodbye ...

Hi all. After more than 32k miles, I parted company with my M Sport yesterday. Some of you know we had a strained relationship from the start. Most of the issues were with BMW, but I had my share...

You can't see the clips by looking through the grille, so I don't know how it could be possible to release them with a flathead. Maybe the 1-Series grille is different.

Assuming nothing has changed with the design, you should be able to get the bumper cover out more than an inch. It seems to me there were a couple torx screws that were concealed. (I'm away from my...

I did. Aside from taking the bumper cover off, which is what dealers do, I don't know how else you can get to the clips.

I had to get really aggressive with the bumper cover. To get my forearms behind it, I had to use more force than I thought it would take. It is surprisingly flexible.

Yes, all but the very narrowest spacers require longer wheel bolts. Good spacer kits like the ones offered by Burger include the appropriate length bolts.
