  1. M5 valet today. Results

    Ben from Prisdean came back today to do my 330d daily. Again, a fantastic job! Very pleased with his efforts, I'll be using him again for a top-up to both cars in 6 months.

    I did read the advert but it seemed the photographer wanted a 'vibrant' colour rather than black (or that's how I read it anyway!).
  3. Drops of oil on this 'thing'

    You know I thought that as soon as I hit send and once I'd managed to trace the pipes when the engine cooled! im hoping to get the ad recommished next week. Thanks for the explanation.
  4. Hi all Can anyone tell me what the hell this thing is?! I noticed a couple of drops of oil on it, whereas a similar looking thing (bottom left corner) is dry. It seems like a rubber cap on something, that nut is there for show as far as I can tell, it's not wound onto anything. Someone please enlighten me!

    One to ask him. He's only a few miles from my house so easy for my valet but other sure the geographical area he covers. http://prisdeanvaleting.com

    OK, not in any of the pics above! Look at the bottom corner of the front bumper in this picture, the silver detail.

    There are two fine scratches (about 4-5inches each) on the bottom of the ns front bumper and ns rear bumper and a small (£2 coin size) on the of bottom of front bumper, which you can see in one of the pics above. Other than those, the paint is fantastic.
  11. Anyone thinking of going to the Duxford Air Museum with their cars in Spring (Sunday 6th May)? https://www.iwm.org.uk/commercial/venue-hire/iwm-duxford/motor-visits Does this forum constitute a 'car club'?! I think they mean official BMW club member perhaps. Anyway, individuals can also go along.

    It's 'just' had a wash..ish , wasn't detailed as the paint was already good. The details are 1. Snow-foam wash 2. Shampoo'd 3. Clay-bar'd 4. AutoGlym polish applied 5. GTECHNIQ EXO sealant applied to bodywork 6. G1 clear vision applied to windows (hydrophobic water repellant) 7. C5 Wheel armour applied.

    Thanks to everyone for their kind words, I rely on all of you for advice since I'm new to the M! I've been opening the taps since the weather got better and I can tell you, it drives fantastically well, even better than I expected. The engine is more responsive low down than I thought but it's the handling that's been really surprising. For a big old beast, it really does turn wonderfully well into corners with a lot of confidence, so you tend to give it more,...and it handles that too! So far so good, I'm over the moon with it!

    That's far too much praise for me! The bulk of the work has been done by Andy, I just hope to complete the project!

    Checking fuses is the extent of electronics knowledge! Next, open things up to check wiring... when I can get round to it.
