  1. You need to have ticked the 12v power package when ordering.

    F10 door corrosion

    Seeing that corrosion point partially answers a question I had... I have no corrosion (yet...) on my Oct 2014 build. BMW dealer did though, replace all of my chrome door top trims as part of the end of warranty check, without me even asking or mentioning any problem. My question was - Is there any link with the trims and the door corrosion syndrome?
  3. I also find that baby-wipes are a great cleaning/refurb option, and less aggressive depending on the original state of the leather

    Tyre temperatrures

    So... A typical c40 mile journey, mixed town, dual, single A and B roads. Ambient temp 20deg. At the end of my journey here is a view of my idrive - all temps similar and throughout the journey either all the same or within a degree (calibration and change points between sensors I expect).

    Tyre temperatrures

    I have the temp coded on my display too. Temp all relative to ambient of course but with correct tyre pressures for the loads (front/rear), the temp reading on all four tyres is within a degree during a decent run.
  6. Ah... I have a genuine BMW wheel brush thingymajig device that gets in such crevices don't you know...
  7. They're the winters I have too, very easy to clean
  8. I have it, c£300 option when new and I find it invaluable when reversing against a tight spot. Personally, I would find it a retrograde step if my next DD did not have one. However, £1k plus fitting/coding is an eye opener. Must be third party options...
  9. When I had a very similar puncture wound on one of my RFT's a year or so ago, I was told by my local big name tyre fitter that RFT's cannot be safely repaired — manufacturers say so... So I researched on line and found that some brands do state this and some don't. Pirelli do state that they do not permit/endorse repairs to a RFT...(guess what brand I have — both summer and winter tyres). I have an emergency tyre repair kit (sold for tubeless motorcycle tyres), that I have used as a permanent fix on punctures on my ride on mower, so I used this as temporary repair on the RFT. Tyre remained perfectly inflated for a month until I got around to buying a new matching tyre. In hindsight I should have left it but I was swayed by the potential insurance implication... BTW, for those who have not seen the inside, a tyre that has been run flat for any significant period will delaminate the interior, and is very obvious to a tyre repairer and they will not/should not repair in this case.

    How to choose a parking spot

    That worries me about the behaviour of some people. It is not just about expensive cars but any car that it looks someone cares about. Arguably some wealthy folk would care less as they may not be emotionally attached to their car, but someone who has spent many hours restoring and caring for a cherished vehicle may well be very upset... Yes I have been there
  11. Agree - My first dealer (near home) a couple of years ago told me my car was not affected (range of vin numbers). Same car but a different dealer (near work) said it was and replaced under warranty/recall, no quibble. As said it is a soft recall. I mentioned on both occasions that I was concerned about the chill factor.

    Software Issues Recall

    Yet is this a coincidence that the volume seller is the one most affected (had to be adjusted)...[insert cynical emoji]

    F10 door corrosion

    As long as you coat in grease afterwards to prevent further corrosion
  14. Swapped the summer wheels/tyres back on. Reset tyre pressures/TPMS. With wheels off I cleaned out the wheel arches including the rear air springs whilst they were extended, to remove grit. Didn't change the front brakes as the pads still have a good 2-3k miles left in them (inner pads) and sensor has not triggered yet
