  1. I added 4 large packs of silica gel that you get in furniture to mine, not that i have suffered as yet but preemptive move as i know it happens, we shall see if i get the issue or not
  2. But isnt this the very point, not only will it involve a complete rethink of infrastructure to make electric cars truly viable, but where is this power coming from in the first place?? it isnt wind or hydro thats for sure, nuclear power maybe??? but we are far from ready to provide enough power to a network of roads, we barely produce enough to power the homes etc we already have... the only real future for vehicles really is hydrogen power, we have plenty of water after all, its Britain!!! may cause the UAE a problem as its all sand and not much else but hey ho, they live the super car dream right now so somethings gotta give!!
  3. My understanding is it needs to be a genuine apple cable as aftermarket ones seem to lack something.. you also need to have the enhanced Bluetooth option which you or previous owner would have specified.. I believe this can be added by coding but not sure if you need an FSC code for it or not.. it would usually show up as an external device.. im sure some of the more experienced members will chime in soon..
  4. IM going for this...
  5. i`m currently working on a feasibility study to see if its actually possible, I suspect not but i like a challenge!!
  6. Honestly, its like them saying they will ban the sale of all petrol/diesel cars in 2040 or whenever it is... flash in the pan, scaremongering bullshit... as has been proved time and time again not all diesels are horrible, smokey bags of rubbish and ones with DPF filters etc tend to be almost as clean as petrol.. the cities banning them are some of the worst polluted ones in the world with dense populations etc, so unless you plan on spending all of your time visiting them im fairly sure you will be fine I own a 525d and dont intend on selling it anytime soon!! certainly not for a sodding eco box Prius pile!!! (id rather eat my own head)
  7. Thanks for the advice people, on balance im actually looking at doing the 6WA blackpanel cluster instead, you can find them quite cheap, £350 and by all accounts should be a fairly easy process to swap them over with minimal coding... I assume the same still holds true that the milage needs to be less than my current car? Has anyone done this upgrade??
  8. HI all, has anyone attempted to do the following?? I really like the idea of this and by all accounts can be done, my car is a 2011 F10 (unsure if this makes mine LCI or pre LCI????) and what exactly does LCI mean?? Thanks in advance
  9. Hi Blood, I have these options on my car, do you think this would work on mine?? i have Pro navigation display etc what did you need to add via E-sys to get this to work? I am having some coding work done by a member of this forum on saturday and would like to try this if possible S481 Sports seat S494 Seat heating driver/passenger S4CE Fine woodgrain vers., Fineline anthrac.
