    +1 It's much more convinient to have the CDs and even MP3 collections on the hard drive.

    Thanks for the update Glad to hear it's been diagnosed and sorted. Fingers crossed the new modules are updated versions.

    Charger given up the ghost?

    I'm guessing yours is plugged straight in a socket rather than via an extension cable ? Have you checked if the circuit fuse at the dis. board has popped ? Have you tried plugging in to another socket which is on a different circuit ?

    Driving in France

    I have a G30 and I didn't have to do anything to my stock LED lights when I took it to France recently. They don't dazzle anyone in France if left on dipped, as per the manual. As others have pointed out, you can change from MPH to KPH through the iDrive's setting menu. I didn't take any "spare lamps", but like the idea of a cheap set to satisfy the police ! You need hi-viz vests for driver and passengers, but you need to keep them in the car, and not in the boot. Another thing to watch out for is the new lower speed limits. Since its new, I bet police will be out there enforcing it. Here is somthing to read... https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/travel/driving-abroad/speed-limits-in-france/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/30/french-protest-macrons-new-reduced-speed-limits/ Hope you enjoy your holiday.

    530e cooling fan

    After saying I've never seen that, it's happend to me twice in two days. Short journeys but noticed the vanes open and fan running after switching off. By the way both journeys where done 100% on battery.
  9. Good to hear that I was begining to think I was the only one experiencing it. Cheers
  10. Good point I'll try finding it and see what happens. Thanks
  11. Forgot to say it was back on RTTI this morning.....
  12. Interesting..........I was in the car from about 4:30 for an hour or so, and it was on TMC all the way....
  13. Coming home after work today (5th July) noticed no RTTI, only TMC. Has happened a few times over the past few month. Anyone else noticed it ?
