  1. Another headlight question....

    I'm just happy to knock mine off and the back on again
  2. Aircon in winter

    Mines on all the time; keeps the system running better and also great for demisting the car
  3. Poss gearbox failure

    Christ that's dirt cheap! Is that for a full fluids and filter change?
  4. Poss gearbox failure

    No; sounds like it's due! Automatic Transmissions on here say around 60/80k miles etc I'll be getting mine booked in with them in the next month or so
  5. 16" turbines fit over 530 brakes?

    Yeah; the Rover gun metallic paint and lacquer has done the turbines a huge favour on this car They suit really well; car drives superbly with them on too
  6. Poss gearbox failure

    Could be But could also be the guibo (donut on the prop shaft); so worth have a good look over before starting on the box itself!
  7. 16" turbines fit over 530 brakes?

    Miners lowered don't forget... Had them on my previous 530i before I lowered it, they looked fine then too... The fat tyres do a good job I'm using 15mm spacers too; otherwise they're hidden right in under the arches... Just a vanity thing probably
  8. Ill again...

    Haha up yer chuff Been waiting for you to comment all day
  9. Ill again...

    Haha Both my folks have had the flu jab; they were both rotten with the flu before Christmas and only just seeing the back of it now! Whatever these 'strains' are of the flu and cold; they're bloody rotten
  10. 16" turbines fit over 530 brakes?

    Yup; that's what I'm running on mine currently with winter tyres
  11. Another headlight question....

    Yup; that's what I have The bulb isn't lit; but knock the switch off and then on again, it lights It's a retrofit, so the standard LCM is for Halogen bulbs and not Xenons; something to do with the cold start (or something along those lines) It's never caused me any issues, like I said, once or twice on/off and they're lit with no issues at all
  12. Ill again...

    Yup... More or less finished the bottles I got for Christmas... Medicinal like you said, all in aid to try and sweat it out of me I'm kipping on our sofa too; cannot lie down, as soon as I do I'm either choking or wretching as my throat is that dry Cough medicines are useless too!
  13. Ill again...

    I'm beyond infuriated I don't get ill, always have a few nerve/muscular niggles here and there, but that's part n parcel of what I do to my body through training etc Everyone in the family bar my brother, my wife & I were ill before or during Christmas, we avoided it all... Come 31st Dec I got bogged down with a nasty cough (which I tried to cure with single malt ) and that turned into a full blown snotty cold... That went, got back into training and felt great... Felt knackered Friday and overnight I went down hill very fast. Woke up absolutely rotten, snotting from every orifice and the fecking cough has come back with avengence too Fortunately I work from home, but still... It's an absolute twat and driving me nuts Rant over
  14. The grand tour

    An XJR is something that will be very much of interest to me when I decide to move on from my 530i That are another 7 series...
  15. The grand tour

    Just watched it myself; great episode Kiefer Sutherland appears to be bit of a stonking driver too!
