  1. I would like to support the forum and buy these too!
  2. I understand it has been done. Mine is a 5speed and if I had a reason to remove the gearbox, for a clutch I would certainly investigate the six speed swap. It feels like it has the torque to pull the taller gearing of the higher gear. The payback would probably take years so never be financially worth while but would make for more relaxed high speed cruising. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk

  4. Have had rainsport 3's on for almost a year now. Excellent grip wet or dry and very reasonable price from Camskill. It worked out much cheaper to order from them and have fitted locally. I also fitted a set to the wife's Mini. Very pleased with the tyres and would definitely recommend camskill. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Tapatalk
  5. No problem. I guess our cars are just getting old and occasionally do wired stuff. I hope it’s the one and only time it happens to your car too. Lester
  6. The hazard flashers on my 530d touring did this once too. Pressing the hazard button had no affect either with the ignition on or off. The only way I managed to stop the flashing was to disconnect the battery. After reconnection, all was normal. It certainly did freak me out a bit at the time. This has never happened again since.

  8. Our local waste disposal site has recently changed the rules so I had to sell the trailer i made years ago. Now max size for a trailer to be permitted in our area of Kent is 2m long and no wider than the towing vehicle. Now need to build another. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

  13. 100 years of BMW: the greatest cars from the Bavarian Motor Works.
