    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Finally got a Quaife. Took the diff along to Bird's, they installed it while I waited. They are great people to deal with, really impressive workshop.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I've never been lucky with an RFT puncture. Five in four years all with a sidewall puncture or worse.

    The repair to mine would have been £45 as would have had to have sent it away and not back until the New Year. Their standard plug would not work properly as too close to the edge. They are a trustworthy bunch my local tyre guys and having 3 cars in the family are a regular customer. We have a 600 mile round trip to do over the festive period so a new tyre it was as couldn't wait for the repair.

    Received a 52 page pictorial instruction guide yesterday from Carly. Within are 3 different methods depending on the type of aux in connection you have and it's location. Strangely, they've requested that I don't share these instructions and also stated that they're watermarked with my order number. So I'm not going to upload these but it doesn't seem particularly transparent for any potential purchasers. Anyway, the jist of it is that you remove the ends of your aux cable from the plastic connector input side. Solder these to the Carly Bluetooth module. Solder a cable from the bluetooth module to a power source, likely 12v. Insert the cables from the bluetooth module into the back of the plastic connector in place of the original aux cable. Items not arrived yet and not sure when I'll have time to install. I've planned to remove the centre console to install the CIC controller, wire up 2 (now 3) power sources to rear 12v sockets and replace the leather gators on the handbrake and gearstick so makes sense to do this all at the same time.

    Finally took my 530 in to the body shop to have every scratch and dent on every panel sorted, plus my X5 bonnet conversion which should be ready to pick up in January [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wherever you have tyre places that can a) carry out a £10 repair or b.) sell you a new tyre they will always point towards the latter. I had a puncture near the edge of a very good tyre in my last car, they told me that no way would they ever consider repairing it, went on about how dangerous it would be etc etc. Made a massive hoo hah about, then when they told me they would have to order it for next day delivery but they would do a temp repair so i could use the car until I got the new tyre!!

    Rubish Winter Tyres?

    Im enjoying the softer almost silent ride, wind noise is finally audible at mway speeds. There is always more give in a winter tyre sidewall due to the compounds, but once you get them loaded they do stick better through them. The alternative would be RFT winters but then i guess you'll lose the improved comfort. I won't be putting RFTs back on mine next spring. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Never seen one of these in the flesh.

    Would love to move somewhere more rural but do not have the balls. Too used to having everything on my doorstep I guess. Its deffo an appreciating classic now IMO. Still quite slow burning and a lot of dogs around.

    Weired ABS/ELV fault

    Just a quick update on this in case anyone comes across it in the future, The ABS module in the engine bay has a large electrical connector on it, somehow this must have became loose or damp inside. I removed the connector gave it a wipe down and reconnected it, once connected everything worked as it should, no dash lights and the steering lock was fine and still is. I'm still confused as to how this affected the steering lock Shaun

    ^ Thanks for letting me know. If only others were as courteous. Had some right jockeys just pissing up my leg over this one. So here are the basics. 1. Do you want to own a purple 318Ti? 2. Have you got £650? If the answer is yes to the above, and you actually intend to proceed with purchase, PM me. I'm not interested in your life story. I don't care who its for. If you're just another dreamer, please go away and play with yourself. Cheers.
