Accident -Private settlement form

Please note under General Car Insurance rules : you are required to inform your insurer even if you do a private settlement (ref Onesg.motoring)

DO I HAVE TO INFORM MY INSURER EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NO DAMAGE TO MY VEHICLE?Yes, always report all accidents to your insurer no matter how minor the
accident may be, even if
there is no visual damage
or even if you have made a
private settlement with the
other driver.
This is because you cannot
be fully certain that the other
party will not file a claim
against you later.
You may find yourself in a
position of having your claim
prejudiced or declined later
by insurers.
Failure to do so will affect
your No Claims Discount
upon renewal of your motor
insurance and will prejudice
your claim.

BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit For F45

After almost close to 4 months of waiting, finally my fav handling mod is here!

As I previous user of Bilstein B12 on a BMW E90, I really like B8 shock absorbers and Eibach Springs. They couple really well, balance between performance and comfort. There is no funny creaking sound which will happen in most coilover. Even found some of the branded ones.

This is Bilstein have to say:

“The BILSTEIN B12 Pro-Kit allows vehicles to be lowered up to 40mm. The kit has the perfect combination of sporty dynamics, aesthetics, and load bearing capacity. 

This BILSTEIN B12 kits consist of tailor-made BILSTEIN B8 high-performance shock absorbers that are perfectly matched with EIBACH springs for an optimal ride.”
