Bimmerfest 2015 - Review and photos by Andrew @ Ireland Engineering
So this year Bimmerfest was out in Fontana at the AutoClubSpeedway. This represented quite a risky departure from the brown grass of the Rosebowl. I think it paid off though. The event was a more enthusiast-centric event compared to former years. In the past the vendors rows were seen as an island among a sea of cars. All arriving enthusiasts were forcibly drawn to like a fly to one of those buzzy things on the porch. The setup at ACS today was very different.

Early cars and steering idler bushing options

Sep 27 2013 09:45 PM | stuff in Suspension and Steering

It's well documented on this forum that the bushing part # 32211115116 is not suitable for early cars and no amount of "soaping" or other lube will ease it into the tube. The blue plastic cladding is just too larger diameter.

If you order the other bushing listed, part # 32212475055, you'll likely get a bushing that is metal clad like the original part you destroyed on removal, and the right diameter (29mm) but way too long. The forum has numerous reports of this happening from all the reputable suppliers - the BMW parts listings are flat out wrong.

This article lays out your options.
