  2. Is it safe to??

    You lost me @ 6...
  3. Aircons playing up!!!

    Yes, the low pressure technically only means it's leaking or has no refrigerant in, the condenser would be my bet but not a dead cert. When you get it regassed they will add a dye that will help locate the leak.
  4. Believe it or not Mrs S is badgering me to buy a car, I think she's sick of me looking, I'd never take the piss and do ask her advice as she's very level headed tbf. She's never really been interested in cars etc. and I've dropped on as she doesn't really have expensive taste, in fact she's a cheap date really.
  5. DPF Regeneration 530d GT

    Had my F11 2 1/2 years and never noticed it regen, in fact I've never noticed any of my cars do it.
  6. Yeah, but i noticed you asked for the screw back....
  7. I read that in the voice of this guy... 49 pooonds
  8. Have a look on RealOEM, they list accessories etc specific to your VIN number

  10. On the plus side any that did get left in would make your car exhaust smell like nutella!
  11. The trick of getting older, you never see wrinkles on a balloon!
  12. Gonna need a bigger cake...
  13. Vacuumed out, very messy process but with good results. Have a look on YouTube, looks very therapeutic.
  14. Dash Cam - 2018 - What have you got...

    I've had dashcams for the last 8 years or so, I've tried many makes and currently have an A119 in mine, the Mrs and the father in laws, and fitted 2 more in friends cars, they are around £70 iirc. Mine has been in for the best part of a year with no issues. Quality is excellent as is night quality imo. The kids car has a transcend in the front and a mobius in the rear, again with no issues. I check the footage every couple of weeks.
  15. I was 50, until yesterday... The Mrs keeps me young, she's only 44
  16. Aircons playing up!!!

    I heard that in Gene Hunt's voice.
  17. I considered walnut blasting but was quoted c£350 iirc, I opted for my indi to remove and clean it at around 80k, mainly because it did it's first 50k around London, when I went to collect the car I could see where he'd had it to clean, it was minging. From memory I paid around £100 but this wouldn't be as effective as the walnut.
  18. I must be getting old, I look at those winters and think "Ooh, they look nice and easy to clean"!
  19. Aircons playing up!!!

  21. Replacing a wing mirror LED indicator

    I'd guess by the length of the cable it will be in the housing.
  22. Aircons playing up!!!

    When the pressure in the system drops the system shuts down and logs the fault
  23. Servicing Question

    As long as you keep your receipts for the work and it's carried out in line with the schedule using OEM or equivalent parts by a VAT registered garage (iirc, but I may have dreamt that) it's fine. Google european block exemption. I have the Mondial (BMW) comp warranty and this is from my policy: What must I do to keep the Warranty valid? The terms and conditions of the warranty listed below must be adhered to. Failure to do so will result in the rejection of a claim or the termination of your BMW Insured Warranty. This does not affect your statutory rights. 1. a) Care of the Vehicle - You must keep Your Vehicle in an efficient and road worthy condition and regularly service it in accordance with the Manufacturer’s recommendations and genuine parts, or parts of equivalent specification must be used. After each service, please ensure that the relevant service details are completed in your service records by the servicing garage and obtain a receipt for the service. You must keep all such receipts for reference in the event of a claim.
