    Having problems with the M4 at the mo. Missus drives it 95% of the time, and is constantly harrassed. I was driving into Maldon the other day, and saw the missus coming out, with a van about 6” off her bumper. I did a u turn and phoned her, told her to give it a squirt, which enabled me to get behind, hence Lewis Vanilton now being behind me. Managed to stop him at the Oak roundabout, and when approaching his window, all of a sudden, he can’t see me, despite the luminous froth coming out of my mouth. Missus had spun round and explained to me i was being a dick, which i was, but i think the M4 needs to go, or i’ll be doing a 10 stretch. On motorways, i use lanes 2/3/4 to overtake, and pull back into the next empty lane. I’m usually doing 80-85, so of i get some knob harrasing, i ignore, knowing i’m the better driver.

    F30 330d M Sport...

    Mine is just a mobile office. Its X Drive, has winters on, quick, easy to park, comfortable, good mpg. Its also Silver, so only gets a bath once a month. Do i look forward to driving it ? Not really. Do i know it will do all i need in my working day, without fuss or drama ? Yes. I used the M4 yesterday, as girlie swagged the van for shopping stuff. ( She prefers it to the M4) Opportunities to use the M4 properly ? Nil.

    She’ll bin the M4 in the cold, it can bite. I’ll give her mine if it snows, and see how much fun the M4 is on the Alpins.

    Help needed.

    Methinks a small shaking of salesman by the adams apple may be more effective. sounds like his mugged her, and now trying to unload a stock car.

    Dpf regen help?

    Carly will usually show glowplug faults. You need to clear these on the move. last one I did was on an 09 X5, it took multiple clears before the regent bit. Over half a tank, and correct temp also required. Took about 20 miles at a constant 70 mph. Which isn’t easy!

    Rear tyres

    My X5 used to knock the inner rear out in 20k miles. Current 330d has 33 k on the clock, and tyres are still at 5mm, no inner edge wear of note, but front shoulders are looking on the way. Bridgestone RFT things.
