    TDS steering adjustment

    The steering box has been overtightened. The play in the steering will be the big 32mm nut at the base of the column inside the car.

    Rant

    The pack of wankers who basically got away with breaking into an airport and chaining themselves to a plane. I'd have taken off anyway. The view from 35'000 feet is quite spectacular. Either way, there's something to be said for piling all the scummers and wrong's onto an old cross channel ferry and torpedoing it in the Pacific. If you can make it back to land on a deckchair, you're free to go.

    What do you think about the New facelift 7 Sereis?

    Could be worse I guess. Look at this shitbox. I'd love to know what was being said between the Chinese guy and the (presumably) BMW bloke in pointy shoes. They appear to be parked next to the Hyundai stand as well. https://www.motor1.com/photo/3608453/2019-bmw-x7/

    F*cking dreadful. What were they thinking? The F01 looks positively elegant by comparison. BMW are after the cheap flash bling market - the elegance has long gone.

    Advice on selling a car....

    Okay then. Have you rung around local BMW dealers? That's a very, very saleable bit of kit. If you could get £13'000 then you're not doing badly. I used to buy in cars like this from private punters when I worked at BMW because really nice stuff just flies away. Having said that, its retail is around £15'500 from a main dealer with warranty etc. £14'000 private is a tad rich tbh. It's an automatic I take it............?

    Replacement key?

    I just spoke to Sytner Sheffield parts about something else, and they don't need coding. The flat key - ordered to the chassis number - is pre programmed at the factory from EWS records. Some are even done in the UK. They will unlock the car and start the engine. There three button key can be programmed with a sequence and doesn't need coding.

    Replacement key?

    In the past I've gone to Timsons who have just coded a new key from the original - that's Ford and VW howerver. The simple flat 'spare' key shouldn't need coding as they come ready matched to the ECU. I've ordered them in the past from BMW and they've just worked. Is it the 2000 onwards 'diamond' key or the really old E36 type?

    Add to that littering. Should be shot on sight!

    Advice on selling a car....

    I think you may struggle with 14 grand - you haven't given a mileage....SE or an M Sport? Manual or auto? To give you an idea, you can buy a 12 plate 530d SE from a main dealer now for under 15 grand and 11 plate ones for around 13k. 14 grand private sale? Very little chance. I'd take the 12 grand WBAC but stand firm on price.

    Nice. Mind you, you do have 6500 posts in a bit over three years, suggesting you spend rather too long on the internet. I guess your social skills in the real world are somewhat lacking.

    Advice on selling a car....

    Depends really on what car it is - if it's another 520d then it needs to be on point to get top whack. What would you hope to get with a private sale? Mid range auto trader prices are a good guide. WBAC are owned by BCA (British Car Auctions) and they aim to sell it on at a profit. That's why putting it through an auction yourself might net you a few extra quid. Their fees can be a bit eye watering though.

    This isn't Pistonheads though. Others are allowed to have an opinion, and a response without recourse to sarcasm.
