    Hi people,can I ask is there a way to restore the colour in my nav screen? It works fine but one day became pale blue. Thanks in anticipation.

  7. Servicing costs question

    Just paid £347 for a first service which included oil,filter and pollen filter.The pollen microfilter was £97,oil filter £!7 and oil £80. The rest was labour inc a wash and valet. It also had the egr valve changed under a recall. They at least paid for a taxi to pick me up from home to collect the car!

  10. Conservatory costs

    Have a wooden conservatory which was knocked through to our kitchen and experianced cold in winter, solved by fitting a Hyper invertor which converts warmth from air outside to inside down to -10, bonus is acts as air conditioner in summer and costs pennies to run.
  11. Exactly, especially pigeons,should be classed as vermin. Some cities have banned feeding them because of the damage to buildings etc they cause!
  12. No wonder cyclists get hurt

    Same around here they wont use cycle paths,cyclists should be prosecuted for not using them if available after all car drivers would if they drove on cycle paths!
  13. +1 on carbon black looks same as mine. Have you looked on the computer to see if they have been switched off?
  14. Eco Pro

    Had my BMW for six months and have been experimentng with eco pro mode,I used it permanently at first but have now switched to only using it on M/ways and long runs due to the better throttle response in urban areas.Fuel consumption seems hardly affected.Would be interested in other peoples observations. Car is 2015 520D M/sport.
