  2. Interested but confused by this. In simple terms are we saying that as the wheels are pushed out so far towards the wings that in order to avoid rubbing against the lip of the wing, the tyres must be stretched to the extent that the tyre wall height is reduced therefore no rubbing occurs? Does this have any ill effect on the longevity of the tyres (being so thin) or the integrity of the rims (having less padding)? Looking to upgrade to 19" at some point.

  3. Thanks, will give that a go tonight. Also found this in reference to Jag parking sensors, do you thing the same principle applies?
  4. Yeah, there's 3 pins, positive and negative and 1 for sending the signal back to the control module. Positive and negative I can check with a multimeter, just not sure how to check the pin that sends a signal. Thanks for your help. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  5. I've amassed around 25 parking sensors in various working order. Does anyone know how to test them to see which ones work without plugging them into the parking sensor loom? Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  6. They'll reset the adaptations, not sure about updating software though. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  7. North London but can vouch for them and they have a fast postal turnaround if it's too far: https://www.themasterlocksmith.com Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  8. Used these guys in Preston, great service, around £350. https://m.facebook.com/AutomaticTransmissionsLtd/?locale2=en_GB Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  9. Anyone know which fuse relates to the TCU? After wiring up some additional 12v sockets in the rear, and adding a 3rd party bluetooth audio device, I'm also getting the SOS error. Want to check the fuse first before delving any deeper.
  10. You do if you want to get it out cleanly. The hinge for the cradle has a screw holding it in that can only be accessed by removing the cubby hole from the centre console. To remove the cubby hole you need to undo 3 nuts that you can only access from underneath the centre console. I think I made a mistake though in removing the electical wires as I now have the SOS Call System Error. I'll plug those back in and if that's the issue I'll try to extract the cable from the cradle and leave them plugged in inside the console out of view. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  11. I watched this documentary based around the residents of the Pinkston estate: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0888pm1 I think the tower blocks have been demolished now and everyone was moved to new housing just along the road. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  12. Yes, same procedure. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  13. Since I've had the car I always struggled with the dim halogen lights to the point I was costing up a Xenon upgrade. I was buying cheap GE or Bosch bulbs when required from Halfords and only replacing one at a time. What a mistake! I bought 4 Phillips X-tremeVision bulbs from Amazon and the difference was incredible. I can see the light pattern on the ground even when it's not dark and have much more confidence driving at night. Philips 12972XV+S2 X-tremeVision Car Headlight Bulb, H7 12V, 55W Halogen, 2-Pack [Packaging type S2] https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00NMEEV9W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_rHqzWs8j9ycWF Sure, they'll never be as good as xenons but they're so much better than the standard bulbs you'll get off the shelf. So if your halogen lights are terrible, give these a try if you don't want to shell out for a Xenon upgrade. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk
  14. Pretty much anything depending on the software application you're using. The easiest way to code options to your car is with an app called Carly. Check this list of possibilities: http://support.mycarly.com/knowledge-base/code-bmw-what-is-possible/ Read up on NCS expert too if you're looking to do anything more advanced.
