  6. Dear Members, Thanks for being a part of our BMW Dubai online community. It has been almost 3 years since our online community came into existence. And with your support over the years we have grown into a well integrated online car community in this region. A lot of members have joined our ever-growing community, and most of them turning out to be very good friends. Friends, today we are seeking a few minutes of your fast paced Dubai life to share your thoughts on a quick poll. This will help us assess and even prove how much our online community has been useful to our loyal members across the region. It is a poll to identify how much value our online community adds to you personally and gives us an opportunity to enhance and add features that may help to save more from that pinch on your pocket.
  7. One of many advantages of living in UAE is exploring off-road nature and its beauty. Everyone of us must have been to desert once in a while and admired the scenic beauty what UAE desert has to offer. From desert safari trips to weekend dune bashing we have enjoyed desert dunes and natural wildlife to the fullest. Every year due to so many visitors, off-road life start loosing its balance when we start leaving things behind from our plastic bags, bottles, cans, bbq foil, broken car pieces etc which are non degradable items that the nature cannot take care of itself. This garbage left behind kills many animals every year. Due to limited reach of municipal authorities to go inside the desert and clean up, every year off-road clubs organize these desert clean up drives. Emarat4X4 is conducting desert clean up drive which aim to save the wildlife of UAE by collecting this non degradable waste from desert. This year EMARAT4X4 has extended a brilliant invitation to all volunteers who drive normal saloon/sedan cars or SUV without desert driving experience to provide the free pickup and drop from the desert entry and exit point. Emarat4x4 crew and marshals will provide continuous non stop pick up and drop to all volunteers wishing to join this clean up drive. Drive will have sufficient sanitation and protection gear for volunteers. This drive will be covered by media channels (print, online and TV) and will provide plenty of freebies to motivate volunteers to come and join for this noble cause. DRIVE DETAILS Date: Friday 8th March 2013 Time: 8:00 AM Meeting: Emarat Petrol Station at Shj-Kalba Rd Coordinates: 25° 14.062'N 55° 34.448'E Exit : 11:00 AM Interested volunteers please contact Mr. Rahimdad Kidwai at 050 6749099, he is the Chief Event Coordinator of www.emarat4x4.com and supporting "Volunteers In UAE" for this great cause to save wildlife in UAE.
  8. Nice video, and very nice detailed interior. Apologies for static link as we have to deter lot of spam this way.
  9. BMW Tightening Torques The maximum tightening torques are: Only applicable to shaft screws with metric standard and fine threads acc. to DIN 13, sheet 13 and nuts with height of 0,8 x d acc. to DIN 934 and only for a m total = 0.125 (screws phosphatized, screws untreated or galvanized. Lubrication condition: unlubricated and also oiled). For cadmium-plated screws or nuts (m total = 0.08 to 0.09) the tightening torque with screw material at the same level of utilization ca. must be 30% less than shown in the table. The values specified in this table apply to all screw connections conforming to the aforementioned conditions. Not applicable when using a different surface or lubricant condition on the thread, or if the height of the nut differs. Not applicable to necked-down bolts, self-tapping screw connections or to connections between parts made of different materials. Important! Maintaining specified tightening torques is vital for performing repair work to a professional standard. This presupposes that the torque wrenches required for this are subjected to a regular inspection. Approved torque testing equipment is listed in the catalogue of workshop equipment planning documents. bmw_torq.pdf
