    What about F30 335d xdrive?

    Exactly like what I said! They just don't feel prestige do they? Mine's on a PCP deal and as soon as I hit the 51% on the payments they are getting the keys back and I'm going to get a used 5 or possibly 3 tourer. Sod what the wife thinks.If she wants a high driving position then she's going to have to get herself a booster seat!

    Breakdown cover

    For those of us with a BMW warranty including breakdown cover.Am I correct in thinking that if AA/RAC etc. even attempts to jump start a car then that will void the warranty for the subsequent repair? I waited 3 hours at the side of the road last year for BMW to attend instead of the 1 hour it would have taken AA to attend for this very reason. It was the EGR valve in the end,replaced under warranty on an X3 with 3,000 miles on it.

    What about F30 335d xdrive?

    I treated myself to my very first brand new car last year for my 40th and got an F25 X3 2.0D. Although it looks the dog's bollocks (I need to get pics up) and came with a decent spec it just feels so dull.It's a hard and noisy ride,the engine sounds like a black cab on tickover and the steering is far too light for my liking. The 8 speed gearbox is good though,it glides through the gears and you don't feel the changes and the Xdrive worked tremendously with the recent weather. The wife talked me into it.I wanted a 5 tourer but we had an e53 X5 at the time and she preferred the high driving position. It would definitely have to be a 3.0 to get any enjoyment out of these.

    The grand tour

    Definitely an improvement on the last series. As well as ditching that shit celebrity thing that they did,the fact that they're filming it in front of a UK audience in the tent makes all the difference. When they were filming worldwide the gags seemed dumbed down probably because not many countries get our humour/irony (especially the Yanks). I think this season is going to be a goodun

  12. A mates dad used to put a square piece of plywood on the drivers seat every night with a load of 3" nails poking up and with a thin cushion on top. Nobody put it to the test unfortunately.

    Plumbers! Simple question

    You MUST also get the insert that goes into the plastic pipe.It could be fine for months/years but all of a sudden it will blow the fitting off without it. http://www.screwfix.com/p/hep2o-hx60-15ws-smartsleeve-pipe-inserts-15mm-10-pack/3158f

    Dark Side May Be Calling

    I'm also considering a merc at the moment. A 2011 E220 CDI blueefficiency Avantgarde. Has anybody had any experience of these? Are they quick when you need them to be? I know nothing about Mercs but this one does look appealing.Only 29k miles and up for £12500 main dealer.
