    F11 Navigation Upgrade - BMW won't Help

    It looks like the OP would like the maps updating as they are showing a date in 2010.

    Top Gear to get worse.

    ^^ this is 100% the problem. It's scripted, we all know it and JC/RH/JM ploughed through it. The last lot of "presenters" just read the script and you could tell it was wooden. I fear that this time round it will be just the same. Feel sorry for Chris Harris being dumped with these two.

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Start in the Spring with a really deep clean & full detail including clay, polish then sealant - could probably take 6 hours!. That lasts me over the Summer where I will probably only do it every 3-4 weeks (quick wash and top up with sealant so 30-45mins). Once the weather starts getting bad (rain) I'll probably do it every other week. By topping it up every other wash keeps it going.

    G30 530e Msport Arrived Today

    Do it yourself - it really doesn't take that long but preparation is the key.

    G30 530e Msport Arrived Today

    Nice, what colour is that? I saw a 530e on Saturday and it almost looked purple, really nice colour imo.
  7. Had exactly the same problem with mine - it ended up going back into BMW and the whole roller section was replaced.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    Glad you got it back and all is OK now. Regarding the automotive OCD, I'm the same - we had to drop the OH's car back into the dealer yesterday due to an issue with the service lights and brakes. It made a refreshing change when they actually asked whether we wanted a service wash after the work was completed - I politely declined advising them of the GTechniq that was applied to the vehicle, and they understood perfectly.
  9. Not sure either. I know we've dropped them from our company car lists.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    That's probably down to parts supply & logistics after VWG changed their providers and are suffering as a result.
  11. Unless you spend mega bucks the spec is poor.

    Glad you got it back - they tend to park them up for a few days and watch them in case they have trackers. I always leave my keys out on the side - I don't particularly want thieves breaking in my house, ransacking things for the keys or worse still threatening me, my wife or kids.

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    Shocking - I always plaster the job sheet with "Please do not wash". I used to have a sign hanger for the rear view mirror but lost it when I changed cars - that always does the trick.

    Fuel Tank Questions...

    I put fuel in, the engine uses it, I fill it back up. About all I'm bothered about. @535i Andrew I put 67 litres in the other day!
