    Paint Damage

    This won’t sit well with the BMW ‘Knock Squad’ on here but I’ve had a few very minor chips sorted FOC by my BMW servicing garage - not the supplying dealer really good job. Probably worth enquiring with them first as they’ll match the paint perfectly. If anyone is tempted to respond with - “The prices they charge for servicing I’m not surprised” Please don’t, but instead spend the time determining which of the manufacturers you’ll get you car from next time.....

    It's had a wash today - foam then shampoo then wet coat - looks good again now, but won't by this time tomorrow

    Collision warning

    These are assistants or aids not there to drive the bloody thing for us. The technology will evolve and eventually take over until then we should use them in the way they are intended and they will increase safety / reduce the likelihood of an accident.....

    Too many thieves about !!

    Reality is the theives earn their living this way while we work hard for our own - don’t lock them up, chain them together and make them fill in the f’in potholes. Win win in my view.

    Triplewax Isn’t What It was

    As the contents of this post suggest, you pays you money you takes your choice, however, you also pay for the car in some way shape or form and to worry about a few pounds to keep it clean seems odd to me. I use the Gyeon Range of products Q2M Foam and Q2M Bathe+ top the later up every month with a spray of Q2M Wet Coat - the roads in Lincolnshire are covered in mud for half the year and this combination work well and makes washing easy....

    Very topical it needs a wash - too wet Sat and too cold Sun and a bit of rugby to watch.....

    Time to Change the Company Car

    Couple pf reasons really, firstly I'm fortunate enough to be able to spec up the 540i - my choice and I don't have to have a badge on the back to tell others what it is. Secondly I don't like them, as I think they look like shite

    It was touch and go on the black but over these winter months I'm glad I went that way - they look less dirty than others despite the miles on wet / muddy country roads. Spring will be here soon lol

    Intermittent Comfort Access

    Suspect it is the cold weather / temperature / frost ???? Mine has performed perfectly since delivery until the first sub temp. morning when it needed two or three touches to re lock after retrieving something from the car - two or three touches probably enough to 'warm up' the touch pad so it became responsive...... Happened on a few v cold mornings since but not in any other situation include the +35 degrees we had last summer !!

    Rattles and annoying noises

    The only thing that rattles in my 540i is the passenger seat belt when not retracted properly - I've booked the other half onto a training course for this

    Icon Adaptive lights - movement with steering

    Ha ha - they'd then overheat implode and attempt to nationalise themselves all in the name of communism....

    Twin Exhausts

    They will both work / emit once the engine is warm and you are motoring...... My 540i stains more on the right than the left.....
