    No confidence at high speed

    After much high speed testing, with correct tyre pressures etc i have no wandering issues on my g31 19" staggered. Droning used to be a classic worn runflat issue, but possibly you've got a damaged alloy? Worth getting a decent tyre place to check it out although if bmw are trying wheel bearings I'd be suprised if they hadnt checked already.

    F10 & F11, m56 today

    They appeared to have crashed into each other, low speed.

    530D - Buyers Regret

    Yep, have owned both. Would say there's a small difference in performance as standard, ride and noise is quite a lot better as stated and makes for a more relaxing drive. I had the f10 remapped a year ago and it went from quick to very quick. Don't feel the need as much with the g31 although a slightly faster throttle response at takeoff to match the old 530d would be nice. Economy - maybe 1-2mpg better in the G but I'd happily swap that for the f10s xenons and parking sensors that were miles better!

    Focal IFBMW-S Component Speakers Used

    Tentatively sold!
  8. Custom fit replacement door mids and tweeters - a direct bolt on for F10, F11 and others etc. . Ideal if you have door tweeter grills already, but the kit also includes tweeter mounts that could be fitted. Kit includes template and screws for this. More info: https://www.focal.com/en/car-audio/car-audio-kits-solutions/integration/plugplay/focal-bmwr/ifbmw-s They were removed from a previous install so show signs of use, are in excellent working order but are just too deep to fit the newer G-series so I'm selling them. Only negative is a crack in one of the mid corner mounts, but its 3-4mm thick ABS plastic and won't budge so doesn't affect the sound. Includes 4 spare genuine door clips, original Focal decals and instruction manual as pictured. The kit still retails at £280 new, final bump before ebay.

    Not being funny but why does a tiny weatherproof ccd and a couple of wiring looms cost over £400, especially if its not even an unmodified fit?

    Probably nothing, as long as its used proportionally.

    Hard to argue though if you dont carry a spare.. of course I'm sure a bmw mobility kit is just as threatening.

    Car theft trends

    A long time former member on here lost an early Focus ST to four blokes, one armed, that decided to take his front door down in Brum many years ago. Did rather set the scene... Think Golf R is probably the target now as its so understated, won't even attract much interest if driven sensibly if required for 'a job'.

    G30 Folding rear seats as standard?

    https://www.mercedes-benz.co.uk/passengercars/mercedes-benz-cars/models/c-class/saloon/facts-and-lines.pi.html/mercedes-benz-cars/models/c-class/saloon/equipment/equipment_packages/mirror_package Same on mercs. And GM truck owners in the US also moan about it - would be suprised if they adopted an EU law for models there however.

    G30 Folding rear seats as standard?

    After switching from f10 with fold down rear seats to a g31 i am absolutely sold on how the touring looks and even better can swallow so much stuff when required with the family. Powered boot lid is a massive help with the kids too. As for the A6, while the old model was understated the new one seems to be suffering from excess chroming. Two ive seen looked like some sort of japanese luxo-barge from the back.

    530D - Buyers Regret

    Test drive both them back to back - just couldn't get on witht the 4pot noise and power delivery. Economy not such a concern as im not a high mileage driver, so I would have had buyers regret if i plumped for the 520d.

    Minicab fare con?

    If it was running on a meter then im guessing it may have been a regulated fare rather than a simple distance and waiting time calc which is what private cabs round here tend to use. You can check the council website in that area for regulated licensed fares and what extras are chargeable. Nothing to stop a private hire cab using the same calcs as a regulated fare meter, and while some councils require private cabs to have a meter, and some dont, but they all usually set the maximum amounts chargeable for distances, times of day etc. Inc extras. regardless and its up to the private cab whether they charge the maximum fare allowed - whereas with a typical black cab they always will.

    Yeah, its not at all clear how to get those side panels off. Absolute pita-mine had to stay on.

    Did you update your tyre size and type settings in TPMS? Dealer hadnt even bothered to set mine at all when i got the car.

    A G31 day

    I concur on the shadowline.
  24. Good luck in future - every manufacturer is abandoning xenons because LEDs are cheaper, have lower light output so don't need a pricey wash system and sound better in marketing literature. Progress eh...!?

    PHEV not being used as intended!

    Another in a long list of badly thought through/executed tax/bill-payer funded initiatives.... solar panels, cavity wall insulation, smart meters, Hinkley Point. Lets hope the considerable sums being spent by councils installing charge points dont just become costly to maintain street furniture.
