  1. Thanks for sharing mate! This works a treat! My wheel is like new now, whereas it had started to look as shiny as an old bus’s!
  2. Whilst fully loaded on the way to the tip this morning, had a little play with an E90 M3. There wasnt much in it tbh, which surprised me, although it was straight line fun only. Boy did it sound nice though!

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    Sorry to hear this mate. Dunno what’s worse, the shunt or the ShLt they’ve given you to rock around in. Once you’re baby is back, your bond will soon be restored I’m sure.

    F11 Bike Rack Recommendations

    No tow bar sadly. My two boys bikes don't fit in the boot as we found out today, plus my black lab sits in there too. The tow bar and Thule combo Matthew posted looks decent but I was hoping for a cheaper option as we aren't going to be out that often. There's some racks which fit on the back for 3 bikes for about £30 but that seems too cheap to be true / safe?
  5. Apologies if this has already been asked, but I couldn't find a thread. Now the weather has got really hot Mrs Goram has decided that the clan should be out on our bikes. So , can anyone recommend a rack for two adult mountain bikes and two kiddies bikes? We aren't a family of Wiggins so I don't need the most expensive but at the same time I don't want to damage the battleship or drop a bike off inadvertently. Cheers folks.

    First world F10-series problems

    No advance button on the wheel to select the next track on the jukebox.

    F10 new ownership thoughts

    Is there truly much difference to the economy if you disable the stop start? It is a little jerky to say the least. Mrs Goram puts it down to inept driving by me, but compared to the stop start in my 335i it feels agricultural in the 535d.

    Best courtesy car ever!

    Hmmm. Stop it. Had a 335i before, and I do miss that engine, pace and noise. Now, where's that lottery ticket....

    Interested in the G31 as a future replacement too. Would be interested to see how the performance compares to my 535d!

    Re-map in or near Hampshire

    Not yet. Had a long chat though when the battleship was in for a service. Although they say it is not detectable by BMW I don't want to risk the warranty. The gains are "considerable" apparently, but I think we all know that! They certainly love their Bob Marleys there.

    Grosvenor quoted £450 for a custom remap on my 535d.

    Never mind all that (which does sound great fun by the way), does it really still attract the odd Shaz and Tracy?!
  14. Gave the old boy a right old caning on a 450 mile round trip from Berks to Cheshire and back. Even managed some fun on a couple of twisties as the shat Nav redirected. Never fails to amaze me that for a battleship that feels a bit floppy under 5 tenths, when you REALLY push on, it really comes alive and handles extremely well. Like a big hot hatch. Almost. All whilst being cosseted by lovely camp oyster leather! Marvellous!
