    Anybody carry a spare wheel?

    I’ve just bought a slightly manky 19” off flea bay and a jack to keep in the garage. If I get a flatty I’ll just get recovered to home, put the manky on until normal service can be resumed. I've had 3 punctures since last Feb, and each time it’s been inconvenient - bank holiday weekends, or the day before a driving holiday.

    Farewell and thanks

    Each to their own fella. This is only my 2nd Beemer, but they’ve both had 6 pots. No coincidence there, the engines were the primary reason for my purchases. You’re spot on about downsizing though. Heck, in my other love of cars, Alfa’s, there’s talk of a 1.3 being put in the Giulia. Which is why I intend to enjoy Rome (and Bavaria) while it burns.

    Tyres and Non Runflat

    Those of you running non runflats, what do you do about carrying a spare?

    F11 530d M Sport Touring potential purchase

    It was neck and neck for my F11 against a BiTDi avant. The Audi had the F11 licked for noise and speed, but the spec on my F11 won the day in the end. Plus BMW make it very easy to buy their cars, whereas every single Audi dealer is a tosspot in my experience! The rear opening window on the F11 is a lovely touch. +1 for the mother in law hatch, what is that? Mine finds her way in often enough so I guess I have it too!

    Cheers guys - will the TPMS still work?

    20” Alloys

    Apologies if this has already been asked..... Were 20s ever an option on the F11? Stumbled across a set that’s apparently off a 640d and was wondering if they’ll be a straight fit with no issues. I got stranded over the festive period with a blowout, and have been looking at spare wheel options!
  8. The earliest Coopers in Reading can squeeze me in is the end of March!
  9. Mines on the list now as well. Was out with two very muddy dogs yesterday. Hopefully they’ll give it a clean when it goes in too!

    Goodbye F10...

    Think you’re arguing the same thing. When I was looking to swap the 335i in I was offered between £16,000 and £24,000 depending on what I was looking at. The monthly cost only varied by £50. I gave up on being worried about getting the best price for mine!

    Faulty infotainment system

    Mine has started doing this too. Seems to do it more when the engine’s cold. Warranty expires end of Feb so I guess I’ll be booking it in soon!

    F10 535d

    Not wishing to hijack the thread, but how different is it post remap, and where did you get it done?

    It is truly intoxicating.
  14. Blimey, have we time warped back to the 70s?!
