  1. The grand tour

    I enjoyed it, made me chuckle at times, VERY ENTERTAINING
  2. LED Rear Number Plate Lights

    Thanks for the comments, mine were not originally LED, but I got a new pair and there in so its sorted, I now have a new MOT. Also had the windscreen replaced due to them failing the car as it had 3 tiny tiny tiny chips directly in my eye's view...
  3. LED Rear Number Plate Lights I had my N/P Lights and the door lights replaced last year with LED's One of the N/P lights has failed so looking for another supplier as the original fella is not around any more. Any one that has replaced the rear N/P lights with LED's and where from, cant find any on ebay as they all say e60 or e39... Thanks
  4. Code reader/reset

    Get the Carly App and the OBD2 adapter, will do that and more
  5. Got the F11 535D

    Cheeky Update, after all the silly issues I had initially with the 535d, some down to garage work, and some down to cheep tyres and my own stupidity, the car seems to be running better then ever, almost at 90K now and still going strong, several weeks ago I did an oil change and stupidly left the car running with the oil filter housing undone,,, I got chatting to some one and when I looked down there was oil all over the floor, I wont make that amateurish mistake again. I hit a fox 2 weeks ago, front lower grill gone, and a nice crack in the bumper, and the splitter is fubard, just lucky it did not go through and hit the intercooler Now booked in next Saturday to get sorted and its time to replace the front discs and pads.
  6. Hubs and calliper refurb.

    I Like that,,, always good to refurbe your calipers
  7. Your Garage & Stuff in it in Pictures

    MY Garage is 3/4 office and 1/4 storage space for my cleaning kit but I have a work shop / unit to use when it comes to playing with my cars
  8. Black Friday, don't be fooled....

    Its the same with Eurocarparts,,, hiking up the price on line and giving you whatever % discount, Just got some front discs, pads and wear sensor using blackfriday deal, and the deal was cheaper then going to the shop for a change. But a typical example: front pads were £142:00 but I paid £35, front wear sensor £20 and I paid £7 and the front discs were £219 each on line, £152 from the shop and I paid £90 each
  9. I purchased my old E60 from Harry Fairbairn (Arnold Clark) almost 8 years ago, I flew up and drove it back, 600ish miles. I discovered it had warped discs 3 hrs in to my drive home, there attitude was terrible when I spoke to them, it was a case of, well your 600 ish miles away, not interested. But I kept in touch and 3 weeks later I drove back up for a funeral, popped in, insisted an engineer took the car out and when he came back he agreed with me. I walked away with a full set of discs and pads as they agreed to let me fit them when I got home........ More then likely the same folk working there. Is the paint covered under the BMW paint warranty, But as already mentioned, speak to BMW direct and complain....
  10. Bmw steering wheel paddle extesions

    I am wondering if they will fit my 335,,,, Ummmmmm How much?
  11. I Like that, Very Much and when the time comes I will more then likely get a M3 my self. I have a 335i running around 400bhp and after thinking about it I should have gone and purchased a M3 then and not bothered with the 335.... you live n learn
  12. Got the F11 535D

    Sorry, I had some issues with the car again, it was due to go in to my local BMW, some very bad shaking from 40ish up to 90ish and I thought it was the prop shaft rubber mount worn, I then replaced the front tyres with some thing a little wider, 235 to 245, then I removed the 20" wheels and put the original wheels back on and had the 20" rears checked but on my way to DCM Tyres the wobble had gone completely. On inspection of the rear wheels one of the tyres were out of shape and there was a small crack on the inner lip, SO, lip repaired, 2 more new tyres on the rear and wider, 275 to 295 as its a 10.5J wheel. fitting them back on the car over the weekend after every thing gets a good clean
  13. Brand new wheel bolts

    Most BMW wheel bolts are 12x1.50, it changed when the newer f10/11 and f07 and some other newer models to M14x1.50
  14. Got the F11 535D

  15. Triumph street triple R

    NOT ALLOWED ANY THING WITH 2 WHEELS, That's until she dies or I divorce her.... The wife just don't like any thing with 2 wheels... I had several over the years, before I had my licence over in Germany I rode a CX500, then a Harley 850 hugger and took my test on a 500cc Can Am In Germany before being posted back to the UK, I then purchased a 750 fazer and eventually wrote that off, I then got posted to Cyprus in 1990 where I got a 1400 Intruder and had the RAF stick it on a pallet and it went back on a Herc to Brize, they were happy days. On the Up, I am left alone when it comes to my cars,,,,,, she know better
