    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Yesterday lifted the bonnet for once in a long time and did a well overdue oil change.. Working it out my car does about 2200 miles a year on average..

    Loud exhaust on small engine cars, for example there used to an old MR2 auto with a loud exhaust. All sound and no go. Might as well add small engined motorbikes with that too. Why would you want to draw attention to yourself when in reality you haven't broken the speed limit yet when it sounds like you're do 100mph, which it does for a long time as it's still in eye and ear shot for about a lifetime
  3. We use MS Outlook at work which via some sort of cloud magic also comes on our phones, so i now use that for all my reminders.

    Lets add groups of wankers who steal mopeds then proceed to rob people in the street stealing phones etc.. Why can't we carry baseball bat and knock these shits on their arse.. There's one cocky shit where i live which rides his own (we think) moped around while using his mobile phone.. Oh how i wish i could place a concrete block in his path
  5. I swear they are all getting bigger all the time, soon the new 1 series would take up as much room as a 90's 7 series

    MOT changes.

    My MOT garage are a real nice group and generally they let me drive home as i live just down the road.. But i trust them to fix any issues and know i won't be robbed

    Welcome to your i series forum

    I would go for the Kia Niro or Hyundai Kona, both offering near 300 mile range for around £34k

    #amazonshitcarshow is back

    Can't believe no one noticed back in tent the chunky (had to be a lesbian) girl behind Clarkson was wearing a button down shirt too small

    What's being worked on today?

    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    My 2.5 Granada chewed its fibre timing gear and my dads 3 litre Granada did the same.. Interestingly one had only the teeth that were fibre where as the other was all fibre except the centre where it went onto the cam shaft......... I didn't find it interesting either. I revved mine up to 5500 rpm once it sounded more like a 1970's diesel, what an overweight shitty engine compared to a Rover V8

    Any electricians on here?

    All fuses are not the same and do have different rupturing characteristics. At work we often get a 13A fused spur supplying some equipment that goes faulty and it ends up blowing the 16 or 20 fuse in the fuse board and not the plug top fuse Circuit breakers can react faster especially where a short circuit occurs, I've had a similar experience with a 110v transformer tripping my 32A ring main breaker and not the 13A plug top because the initial surge current of the transformer energising can draw quite a bit of current. Of course RCD's will only trip on the difference between the live and neutral current, generally 30mA.

    Symptoms like clutch slip?

    Low transmission oil level comes to mind. When was the gearbox last serviced if at all.

    Fuel Gauge

    sender unit fail or wiring to it. If the dash was showing other issues then i would say unplug the binnacle and plug back in.. That cured mine when it all went tits up
