Cheers Soulboy.

I have always liked BMW's I had my E46 330ci for over 7 years. The BM engines just seem to pull every gear all the way through, other engines seem to fade!
I have a box of 150 DrLeather wipes in the boot at all times. I have read a lot on the DyeBlock etc and a lot of people said it's a waste of time.

I give them a once over every week and they see looking good still. Only into my third week though.

Do they use ZF boxes, or is it their own one?

I'm pretty sure its a ZF unit these days unless it's an M car, then you get the DCT

I believe it's a ZF box. It was a 2.0 ltr diesel that I drove.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments!

Done that Saturday and the dust has already got it. Black is nice when clean but boy does it show dirt!

It is a ZF box, most likely the ubiquitous 8HP.
