    #amazonshitcarshow is back

    Seems like you can look forward to some Alpina vs M-something action and at least one e38 getting pasted during the series!

    Ai, just watched it in a post-chemo daze. Only fell asleep once so that's a good sign.

    F10 2015 comfort access boot

    Our national skills at Morris-dancing are sadly on the decline but im making a mental note to watch for more of this in the supermarket car park. Mind you, remote opening is only thing anyone has ever randomly asked about my 5er while parked. Apparently the two young ladies thought it was "well cool"...

    New plates

    Thankfully thats one item unrelated to Brexit as i quite like the standard GB logo built onto the plate too - Vienna convention, not an EU agreement!

    Coolant Tank Cap Removal.

    First sign of egr premature failure!?

    Mixing Oil viscosities?

    Sell the spare edge oil. For what you've paid for the magnatec (ive 8l for stupid money from tesco) its hardly worth worrying.
  7. Had a call about my old 14-plate 530d today. This was from my local dealer who hadnt updated their records but were at least being proactive.

    Just ordered, now the long wait!

    Just checking, does one of those options include extended bluetooth functions?

    "We aim to get you out ...

    Yes £270/month with £5k down. Mine was a year old with only 1200miles (so practically new but with £20k off list) and with a decent RV due to my low annual mileage it was a bit of a no brainer compared to what else i was offered.

    "We aim to get you out ...

    Had the same comment when i bought mine and financed with the dealer - but unless they can get to £270/month for another 530d msport they'll struggle to move me to a new one.

    Rear Seats Not Locked Warning ~ G31

    Watching this, i also find it very unnecessary!

    Help c/heating controler packed up.

    Funny, just binned our salus rf and swapped to a Hive. Much better!

    Test drove these two cars today

    I'd be waiting for one with better audio too. Retro fitting can be rewarding but expensive and time consuming!

    Twin Exhausts

    They're pretty integral to design whether single, twin or quads - as long as it looks right!

    Twin Exhausts

    Yep, just looks disappointing when its cold and my headlights are illuminating a single plume!

    Twin Exhausts

    Sat behind a 540i g30 this morning for five minutes in traffic, disappointing to see only the nearside doing any exhausting at all!

    Problem with playing music through USB Stick

    Try a different stick or not quite inserting it fully-my g31 was very sensitive to the position of one of the usb sticks.

    Playing devil's advocate i think the impact of vdc is less on a touring compared to a saloon due to the rear air springs anyway. The 18" wheels will cost less in tyres if you do higher mileages and you can run crossclimates year round in 245/45 profile with much less chance of alloy damage and a comparative magic carpet ride! If someone else regularly drives then the memory seats are handy. Not really helping are we...!
  20. Can be a cracked egr inlet pipe, most commonly experienced on a cold morning - open bonnet and sniff the front left of the engine when just started. If its bad there you could definitely have a cracked inlet which is spewing exhaust fumes into the bay and these do get back into the ventilation system.

    Test drove these two cars today

    I bet they give the brakes an Italian tune up in the first instance due to lack of use... They are onepots so if siezed youd have have had bigger issues -one side would have been rather hot/smelling by the end of your test drive. The indy looks a little bit overpriced compared with the auc dealer car at the same mileage imho - the 19" rims and widescreen nav do add some value second hand and despite the AUC prep being awful they will usually sort most stuff willingly.

    Any electricians on here?

    No pun intended im sure, but made me smile.

    Sorry, you're right Matt but i thought he'd re-released a non expiry Premium version. Either way tracking down TM is a tricky and time consuming task it seemed- isnt he essentially hacking the launcher anyway?

    Missing extended Bluetooth features. Poorly explained by bmw and their sales team. Fortunately can be coded in retrospectively but probably not by an official dealer.
