    the 10k purchase cost is offset with the resale value though...

    Heater / blower question.

    If the resistor has gone it often only effects one of the speeds also so would explain why he thinks its temperamental

    Let the scoffers scoff, it keeps the prices of the Skoda's low. Our neighbour is on his second superb, this one has the brolly in the rear doors, akin to the RR's I looked at the LK ones but couldn't find a decent 6 pot one at the time Get some pics up

    +2!! On the noise of the 4 pot and Skoda's, we run 7 Octavia SE's with nav etc for the engineers @ work all do in excess of 30k pa and are the 1.6d 115bhp machines and they are smashing cars. Other than servicing I've had to replace 1 battery under warranty. I would have no hesitation whatsoever going over to Skoda. The Mrs has a Golf and the 1.6d in that is surprisingly quiet on tickover.

    F11 530d M Sport Touring potential purchase

    Only less engaging regarding the way it stays planted perhaps...?
  8. As above and I upgraded the bulbs in my F11, the A7 are similar but maybe a little brighter. I've used geofencng so my drive lights come on when I approach, much better imo although only good for home obvs.

    It's the ski hatch and it's used to communicate with her when she is in the boot.

    Wheeler Dealers Series 16

    The more I watch it the more I dislike him, I can also see in Edd's eyes he's often thinking "what a twat"

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

    Yeah I can turn it off but it makes little difference, I can get the TC light on briefly but only if I'm giving it the beans and on a particular road near work where the camber alternates quickly over a few roundabouts. I shouldn't grumble really as it's very sure footed and plants down when you press the pedal.

    A6 is a nice interior but the screen isn't a patch on the wide f11 and the ZF is sublime ime.

    I agree they would come straight off if it were me, but also if I were looking to chop my car in and it needed tyres I'd put any old shite on as the dealer won't even look past the tread depth if you're lucky.

    I do miss the fun with the tc off.

    You'd have to be Stevie Wonder not to notice a 100k mile suspension part, my bags had c70k on and were chafed to buggery.

    A Few small annoyances :-

    And totally dependant on the people working there, the problem is that you have no idea who's working on it once it dissappears into the workshop. I personally wouldn't have total peace of mind with a dealer.

    F11 MSport Rear Air Suspension.

    Work colleague bought 2 ebay ones for his 5gt for c45 and he's had no issues in over 18m. I put a cheap ebay one on my F11 and it was fine, do a search I put photos of them side by side, the cheap one was excellent quality imo.

    foglight replacement

    I read it as peasant! My fog lights were easy to access by pulling the lower grill off and undoing 1 screw iirc. No need to take my bumper off

    A Few small annoyances :-

    It's not the brake pads moving is it? I had it on my fronts and new pads sorted it. I wouldn't trust halfords with my bicycle, as above local trusted indi is the best way imo.

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

    I do c25k pa and tbf the steely didn't impede too much in the F11, still plenty of room for the hound.

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

    I bought a steel spare and also carried slime and a plug kit. Luckily I never used any in anger.

    F10 park assist not working

    I'd guess a faulty camera, sounds the same as mine did, mine failed after a spirited jet wash before I sold it and the camera came back to life after it'd dried. Bit of an odd one on the bmw and I can only summise the unit throws a wobbler as mine flagged up various cams iirc. As I say, get the codes read 1st.

    F10 park assist not working

    Rear camera malfunction could be any of the 5 cameras. I had the same message with a faulty ns mirror camera, easy and relatively cheap to replace. I'd have the codes read 1st then do a search on here.

    They get a decent write up, the last 2 new Golf's of the Mrs has had Hankook tyres on.
