    Top Gear to get worse.

    I don't mind the cricketer but I can't stand that other talentless wanker, he's not said anything funny since Peter Kay stopped writing his lines.
  3. Make me an offer, rather they were used than sitting by my house
  4. The key bit is this "The development was carried out according to the demanding requirements of the BMW Group. This is especially true for the quality and safety of the power kit that has undergone long-term testing by BMW." Point is I'd trust BMW to know what is safe for the engine they designed, and the mod has undergone long term testing. With your average aftermarket tuner, probably no long term testing and have they gone about extracting the extra power in the best way ? Interesting that they seem to acknowledge the limitations of the autobox, "The maximum engine torque depends on the gear."

    Looks right to me. And while teh OP is only asking after bushes for an existing a/roll bar, but discussion of swaps often comes up: so, a total aside . useless factlet I picked up studying suspension /chassis design - rollbar stiffness is proportional to 4th power of diameter. So a 24mm bar is 41% stiffer than a 22mm bar(!) Beware ever making big changes in isolation - esp on the rear. (esp on the rear of a gutsy FWD car, as I once did about 15yrs ago. Have a boosted Saab 900T pirouette round the inner front wheel into every bend like a 1275 mini? Oh yes you can - but it gets hairy/ you run out of space and options, quickly..!)

    Google maps finally

    Personally I think it is worth every penny for the google maps and waze alone. Noticed that if I switch on waze and google maps i get pop up notifications for speed cameras from waze overlaid on google maps, which is nice. spotify app is far more complete with discovery suggestions and mixes displayed clearly, with Apple allowing 3rd party apps now I’d imagine it will only get better. Also just noticed that since all these wonderfull ukdates on carplay, BMW have ramped up the price now from £230 to £255! Thanks BMW!

    "The comedian and former England cricket captain" I thought he was just a cunt. You learn something new every day. It wasn't bad with Matt LeBlanc. I missed the entire last series as really, I CBA with it.
  12. hello again.

    have you got one of these?

    it is the trim around the gear shift(complete with the plastic insert.) from an e39

    i am not too bothered about condition of the wood finish

    2002 Sport Touring wet rear carpets

    It kind of sits on the sill plate and then runs into the car Don't know fully how; but that's how I saw it after I'd run the hose pipe on it for a good while I'd suggest you get them sorted ASAP; to do it properly takes around 30mins to an hour each door, but worth it There are a lot of topics covering this, quite a few this year and in the last 6 months, so it's worth doing a search I've linked to the sealant I used and would highly recommend; but it's all about the prep and cleaning the old sealant off that makes the most difference
  14. Bought some new rear door membranes a few years back but I never got round to fitting them as the carpet never got wet again, until now!!!! Can anyone explain how the water gets down onto the rear carpets? I've had a good look and bottom of the door frame where the drain holes are is outside the inner door seal and sits below the level of the door frame. I just can't see how it would get into the rear footwell and how fitting a new membrane will cure the problem.
  15. Nice one OP, just ordered a boot light from China. €4 delivered.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Yes! Blowing up perfectly good sheds and overturning caravans may have some limited entertainment value, but it's sod all to do with cars and motoring.

    F11 Navigation Upgrade - BMW won't Help

    It looks like the OP would like the maps updating as they are showing a date in 2010.

    Top Gear to get worse.

    ^^ this is 100% the problem. It's scripted, we all know it and JC/RH/JM ploughed through it. The last lot of "presenters" just read the script and you could tell it was wooden. I fear that this time round it will be just the same. Feel sorry for Chris Harris being dumped with these two.

    Top Gear to get worse.

    I just want Top Gear to be about cars. With the new line-up I can't see that happening - it just will be IMO unwanted comedy Edd China will either be excellent because of his analytical intelligence or could make him a total failure on the show. I however will still rather give him the benefit of the doubt, and have a car show again. Didn't Edd appear in one or a couple of The top Gear episodes in the late 90s or early 00s
