    Parking brake switch

    The brake bolts to the underside of the trim iirc, again with some torx.

    Parking brake switch

    Yeah, one torx under the armrest and the rest is a firm pull, you will then need to unplug a couple of bits iirc, very easy I had mine off a couple of times to clean it, replace the ashtray and again for the brake. I may have put some pics up?

    Not sure where I read it but on newer models (thought it was BM, may have been vw) the key turns off after a couple of minutes of inactivity, meaning once it's in the cupboard or wherever the range extenders are fruitless as it stops transmitting.

    Parking brake switch

    It's a common fault due to the brittle plastic, I replaced mine after 55k.

    Goodbye my friend.

    I remember a guy prosecuted successfully for slamming on at a police bike and being rear ended.

    Goodbye my friend.

    I've travelled from South Yorkshire to Chichester today, twice the traffic has come to an "abrupt and immediate stop" I've hardly been in lane 3 as I'm in no rush but both times I've witnessed it it's been lane 3, once for a strap from a lorry with a big ugly hook on it and not sure about the second time as I couldn't see. The issue with the strap was about 300m back due to the domino effect. I see it reasonably often.

    F10 535i Service advice

    Goodbye my friend.

    I always thought, and in my experience dealing with fleet at work the liability has always been with the last vehicle in line, not sure what would mitigate rear ending someone regardless of the reason they stopped. I'm sure we would have all ended up hitting her but the scenario even in a motorway would be they could be stopping for a pedestrian.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    If it's a quattro it's probably pulling the 5 off the grass...

    Both bmw and Audi unplug my camera when it's in the garage, personally I have no issue providing they plug it back in before they hand it back. Leaving it unplugged is asking for trouble imo.

    DAB reception issues

    Have you added anything to the car electrical system, like a dashcam, charger or even a USB charger?

    Goodbye my friend.

    Glad everyone is OK and it's sorted, at the end of the day it's only an insured asset. There is a part of the M1 I travel on most days that faces direct into the sun after the brow of a hill, its notorious for the same reasons by they put the signs to 40-50 when the sun is out. I still see the dickhead whizzing past me and think more fool them, because they think they can see it won't stop someone panicking and slamming on in front.
