The first time that my wife ran over a nail, we took her car to the dealer who said that they could only replace the tire for safety reasons. I figured, what the heck, might as well be safe. So I...

The thing about a dash cam is that it runs on 5V, so you need to step down the voltage from the standard 12V supplied by the car. The camera usually comes with a cigar socket adapter that does this...

Yes fuse #8 is 20 amps, but the secondary fuse on the add-a-fuse tap can be whatever you want it to be. In the case of a dash cam which only needs 2 amps (and has a 2 amp fuse in the power supply) I...

The 10A max rating is for the new circuit. You still leave the original 20A in the main position.
10A should be sufficient for applications such as radar detectors or cameras. Also, you would...

I think that the symbol for the accessory fuse is below and the add-a-fuse will tap in a second circuit.

That's like saying you should only drive the speed limit, so BMW won't allow the car to go faster.

If BMW did this on purpose, why did they not do it for the passenger side mirror? That passenger...

Mirror issue for me as well. I have had my mirror replaced in the first month thinking it was faulty, but the new one was the same. Someone goofed on the design.

Why anyone would spend $245 to update that lousy excuse for a GPS in the X1 is beyond me. I'm kicking myself for ever paying $1200 for the option. If it gets to the point that the maps change that...

These Motegi 17" rims are supposed to have a high positive offset. The seller is willing to let me put them on the car and try them for a day or two before I buy.

Anyone know if these will work on an X1, which calls for 225/50R17 tires. Will the speedometer be off with...
