    Too many thieves about !!

    Yep, think its a very good idea.

    Run flat repair

    Bad luck, not whats needed. I turned down tyre and wheel insurance on mine but its only a couple of issues like that which would make it worthwhile...

    Might be able to code it out but be careful if you've had too many potatoes.... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-358451/Harvey-blames-potatoes-bizarre-car-accident.html

    PHEV not being used as intended!

    Is there any way to see the contribution of 'external' electric vs petrol use or is it all wrapped into the overall mpg figure? Guessing its too complex if the engine can charge the battery as well as from the grid, but someone i know got a 530e and wondered.

    Seems bizarre that they didn't think of that in the first place simply as a battery saving mechanism. I have to admit I have a feature on my keys that sends the signal only on request, its an open button... Hope the dealer can sort a solution that disables it for those concerned.

    A couple of summers ago they deployed the police helicopter here to recover a stolen bike + person responsible. Amazing.

    Diesel 11p a litre more than petrol

    I reckon good news would be somewhere near 50p a litre for your fleet Mr Sharkfan!

    If we used standard diesel it probably would be cheaper but ours is the ultralow sulphur variety which cost more as feed stock. That or its just a better fuel than petrol, so costs more.... (runs)

    Icon lights not happy in cold weather?

    Incandescents used to be great for drying out the odd bit of condensation. Leds have different light wavelength outputs which mean they do waste less heat watt for watt- but its a bit like indoor bulbs here, i dont mind if they produce a bit of heat, its a tiny tiny proportion of the energy the engine itself wastes so aside from the beam shaping matrix i dont see a massive advantage with leds except for perhaps the manufacturer.

    Frozen wing mirrors

    True, its possibly a bit too much to expect a large manufacturer to consider and design for rain and cold together.

    Frozen wing mirrors

    Will be doing that today after all four doors froze solid this morning requiring de-icer before i could even get into the drivers seat, still the girls thought it was quite amusing using the tailgate for access... Lucky we don't live somewhere really cold i guess.

    Best use for menu shortcuts?
