  1. Request for Harmon Kardon owners

    Yep, heard it quite clearly. Sounds like the frequency of the notes is triggering resonance in the door perfectly! Very unpleasant - feeling the need to apply a whole load of silentcoat to the door panels now.
  2. F10 door corrosion

    Apols, thanks for pointing that out!
  3. Request for Harmon Kardon owners

    Which speaker in particular? The opening to Daft Punk Around the World always sets off some kind of harmonic in the front passenger door as the bass comes in but I dont have any buzz with handsfree. Will have a listen to yours!
  4. A sooper dooper alarm and a bath

    Obviously there's a factory alarm, but this adds another level?
  5. F10 door corrosion

    Do you mind sharing via PM please?
  6. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Think I'm probably going to end up in the local RS mid-week with the 448 amp and pi-based DAC once it arrives! There's a lot of choice of new kit around the £150-200 mark including the Spektor 2s which might offer a bit more. Sorry @duncan-uk, nicking your thread again.
  7. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Some nearby for £125 on the bay....hmmm.
  8. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Cheers Dan, good advice. I have limited space so thinking the forward facing port on the BXs would make then better suited if positioned closer to a solid wall?
  9. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    My C320BEE was a replacement for the the first amp i bought, a brilliant Sony TA-F488EB class A that ran very hot and then lost a channel after 9 years... my 10 yr Richer warranty covered it but they lost it in the process so had to refund me the original price! Just got hold of another 448 via ebay and its a peach. One think i will say is my Tannoy M2s did not fare well in the loft, every plastic screw hole has a hairline crack. I quite like the look of the MA Bronze BR2s as a second hand buy.
  10. What are you listening to?

    Not the Paul Di'anno stuff or Blaze i assume... although i saw PD perform in a 'Boro pub once a few years after the real deal with Bruce in Manchester. Seventh Son my first ever CD album!
  11. What are you listening to?

    Soundtrack from Baby Driver. Toe-tapping.
  12. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    I cant get past the new wonkier rear! Loved the previous gen, we were ferried up some offroad tracks in one and the next day i was having a serious look on auto trader. Terrified of day to day faults however, and wouldn't be able to spot it in the school car park amongst of sea of the bloody things.
  13. Hit & Run Help !

    Mate that is terrible luck, hope she is ok. The damage might at least be clear as to the lack of fault which some insurers might treat as a not fault claim if they're bring sympathetic . Makes me rethink the dashcam idea again.
  14. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    This could go for 28 pages now Retset's involved.
  15. Can't find air spring solenoid!

    Can't help much but i also cant see a jack stand... take care!
  16. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    Mine booted and is running very happily again on a microserver thats tucked away for the past year. Even has a 3rd party Spotify plug in that works like a dream. I think the debate here is as much about miniaturisation and impact on SQ of combined components. The advances in amplifier class D and G use along with driver design are pretty astouding. I bought a single Play1 and ended up with five spread through the house. But im looking forward to the arrival of a vintage Sony TA-F448 70wpc class AB amp to play with shortly. Completely analogue. I may need some advice on speakers myself.
  17. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    My mates wife has a c4 grand Picasso diesel auto and loves it, 3rd theyve had. They could buy something 5x pricier if they wanted. Dealers only get better when its harder to attract £££s through the door, they know you have a choice. The VW guys are scratching their heads still, i bet.
  18. Considering F10 M-Sport...

    I agree with Rob. It's very easy to end up with mid30s economy on the 530d, not that i dont love it, but if fuel costs were a big consideration then the 2.0d makes a lot more sense - also has less nose weight so a tad more sprightly.
  19. Sport > comfort != TC Off

    Yep, hitting traction control button in Sport puts it back into comfort with traction off. Sport+ is the way to do it.
  20. HiFi speakers and set up advice

    All this discussion has reactivated my hifi bug and I've just built a Raspberry Pi based app controlled DAC using the old Logitech Media Server/Squeezebox software and a decent daughter board burrbrown-based DAC chip. Took less than 30 mins start to finish - pretty amazing. Not that im trying to complicate your options Duncan...
  21. The sofa there is pretty comfy, i can vouch for that. Friendly staff who know what's going on too, rather different to your average KwikFit experience.
  22. F10 525D 3.0 Service approaching 70k

    I could literally have changed the oil and filter on my driveway in the time it has sometimes taken our local dealer to even get a member of staff to the parts desk.
  23. What's worth coding on an F10?

    Im going to drop the number of headlight washes that are applied each time it triggers.
  24. You're forgetting that remaps are and should be very detectable using your right foot.... And for the reasonable amount being charged for the service, i doubt liability insurance for a possible warranty refusal based on possible extra wear and tear from a remap is being considered. Who would agree to that? I think there are way too many factors to take account of.
