    Major Service cost causes major heart stoppage

    Did you buy this from BMW? They usually come with MOT cover meaning you don't pay for anything on it's 1st MOT although I'm sure there's some exceptions such as tyres etc.

  3. I've had 2 cars and a few warranty repairs from Lloyd Colne and never had any issues at all with them.I think due to it's location they might not get many fleet/business users so they tend to look after you a little bit more. Thankfully I've not had to visit them for nearly 2 years though

    How to pick a good boiler

    The gas lads in work swear by the Potterton ProMax. I work in social housing and we maintain 13,000 properties and whenever anything packs up they get replaced with these at their recommendation.

    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
