    Which Wheels Will Fit For Winter?

    Even on michelin cross climates (not true winter tyres, but M+S marked) we made it to the top car park during a venture up a very snowy and popular sledging spot in north wales. Parked the 1 series between a row of off roaders, the only non 4x4 up there. Worth the £60 a corner for that alone on hers! My 530d f10 happily trudged past our stuck local royal mail van while wearing 245 width crossclimates. I did stop to ask if he needed a hand, carried on with zero dramas. You'll have no issues.

    Fuel Cards - employer provided for your BMW

    So if you're out and about on a long day do they expect you to take sandwiches and a thermos? You can always claim back expenses incurred via tax return if not but its probably not the opening conversation you want with a new employer.

    Not sure that calculator included the tax relief that Tom is talking about claiming. You'll need decent records of your business miles but worth checking if you are doing significant mileage.
  5. I'd say you should argue under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 (as you bought it after it replaced the Sales of Goods Act) that it hasnt lasted a reasonable amount of time given its meant to be oem quality which on a new car would mean it would be repaired or replaced for three years. Ask for a pro-rata refund of about 2/3rds of your purchase price as its lasted just over a year. Have a crack with this letter generator and amend as required. https://www.which.co.uk/tools/faulty-goods-complaint-tool/

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    My first f10 was rear-ended, broke one of the subframe mounts, £10k repair bill. As the other driver admitted liability i got the same model replacement same day through my employers accident management company... another £5k in rentals.... ridiculous! Glad you're ok.

    Of course he does, because it would mean maintaining the standards currently in place with EU. That wont please a number of US exporters.

    Its surely the tax hit that matters most of all?
  11. Is it worth asking a radiator repair shop to have a look and try and repair first? Cant be more than a couple of joints and they might make it a lot more robust long term.

    Not run flats on the new car

    Yep, you'll definitely notice the change in sidewall flex if you go with a softer non runflat. Ive previously had an 18" rimmed SE F10 with VDC and it rode very well on runflats however managed to split two oem rims over three years. I'd rather have a more flexible sidewall!

    F11 530D Tuning options

    Yeah, the one car my wife wishes we hadnt ever sold! But the f10 as an all round package takes some beating.
