    At the same time as a mysterious brake drum through the windscreen via the bonnet

    What to look out for

    I've got a 535d and did less than 2000 miles this year.. No problems in 8 years

    Disc thickness

    So do we think this disc has another 1000 miles left on it

    Soft close door problem.

    Could it be just the motor is tired, brushes worn etc..?

    The only thing i'm not sure of is the black wheels, but that's just me

    Disc thickness

    Thanks for the replies guys. It is amazing how such little wear 0.8mm per surface constitutes the disc as worn out.. Looking at mine on the weekend i would have said they were no where near looking close to replacement when you see the new 525d disc above is only 30mm to start with. Thanks for the tip Andrew

    Disc thickness

    Cheers folks.. Measuring mine they are around 34mm, which is slightly less then 34.4mm, so i'm guessing it was 36mm new. I did have to file the lip off the edge because my micrometer only goes up to 25mm, so i had use a vernier calliper to measure it.. There's still quite a bit of meat on the pads still 5-6mm and the sensor hasn't flagged up yet. So i'll wait another year (1500 miles) and look again..

    Disc thickness

    I've tried searching for it and gave up.. Who know what the minimum disc thickness is for the OEM front discs on a LCI 535d e61 Thanks in advance

    Recommend a DAB radio for the kitchen?

    I've had DAB in a hire vans and to be frank i think the whole system is shit.. I listen to Sussex Heart radio in the morning because the presenters crack me up.. My normal FM radio is happy to go from Tunbridge Wells to Brighton to Hastings without any issues.. DAB constantly cuts out and disappears and this has happened on Transits and Renault Traffic's so it's not the setup. Yes when it's working it's beautifully sharp and clear but 50% of the time it doesn't work at all

    There's quite a choice at Argos.. Also some reviews which might help. We bought the cheapest (not sold by Argos anymore) one a few years ago for music for the dog while we're out and it has plenty of volume and clear sound. http://www.argos.co.uk/search/dab/opt/sort:price/

    Bloody women drivers!

    Should have seen the stick this PC woman was giving this article of Serena Williams on BBC news this morning.. As soon as the image came up I nearly spilt me coffee over my nuts i was laughing so hard

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Leave the bolt off and rely on the wheel to hold the disc in place.. Although you need to be an octopus when getting the wheel back on

    Bloody women drivers!

    Exactly why i posted about my 20 year old daughters experience above which she told me about after getting home from work.. Last year she had an insurance black box on her car and the amount of cars that drove so close to her because she was only doing 30 in a 30.. We had to get a novelty sticker explaining why she was going the speed limit for the back of her car.. Men or women, these are the cunts that need to be banned and have their license shredded.. Oh and old people who think that doing 40 everywhere is ok
