  1. Sat Nav Disc

    Update: Managed to remove the disc (must have caught it on a good day ) and the replacement I purchased turned out to be a mk3 I might as well send my mk4 drive off to Carphonics when I send my BM54 and have both of them overhauled.
  2. Sat Nav Disc

    Thanks Dennis I will be sending my BM54 to him anyway so will inquire about the Nav. Bought another one now so may sell this one on once it’s had a clean bill of health.
  3. Lear Amps

    Ok thanks for that. Yes I think my BM54 is going and I am going to send this off to Carphonics for an upgrade. Seems like nearly every component on my audio side is giving up. Thankfully I recently purchased a new Nav screen due to pixel issues and also picked up a mk 4 nav drive (because my old one will not eject) but the seller also has a Lear amp hence the question.
  4. Sat Nav Disc

    Anyone ?
  5. Lear Amps

    What are they ? Is this the DSP equivalent of my BM54 ? Can I use this in place of my failing BM54 ? (learning all the time )
  6. Head lamp washer delete?

    Truth be known I think they have always been a no no Dan. It was the governments plan to curb ‘boy racers’ fitting Xenons to headlamps that do not have the ellipsoid (fishbowl) lenses built into them which results in wild beam scatter and blinds other road users. I will buy some H7’s towards MOT time next year though to be on the safe side
  7. Head lamp washer delete?

    I always thought the same ie: If you have Xenons you must have the washer system. However it really is down to the MOT inspector on the day. I have Xenons albeit retro fitted with NO washer jets and my car passed the MOT tues.
  8. Sat Nav Disc

    My sat nav disc will not eject no matter how long I keep the eject button pressed ! Any ideas how to get the disc out ? Ita a MK 4 DVD version.
  9. Happy Days !

    RIO passed with almost flying colours today. The windscreen chip showed up on a old MOT from about 8 years ago and hasn’t got any worse (I’ve owned it about 4) Also confirmed I do an average infinitesimal mileage of around 5k per annum
  10. Staggered Wheel Fitments - What Size Spare?

    Nice to know Contemplating getting another style 37 for the spare but did not know which one ! Will putting a front one on the rear if needed have any problems ? ie: diff or anything like that ?
  11. Heard a bit of a commotion outside and seen this. I live half way up a fairly steep hill so this guy decides to take a run at it and then start slithering sideways towards my car Always nice to get photo evidence before possible (expensive) damage to my M5 mirrors. ......... which funnily enough helped him with his manoeuvre to get out of the way !
  12. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yeah not doing mine red but my backing plate is powder coated blue so have gone for RS blue so hoping it’s a match I have fitted red brake lines though
  13. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Brake fluid flushed and new braided hoses all round Just need to paint the calipers now as they could do with a tidy up
  14. Are they dare I say it ‘rare’ ............scampers off to fleabay
