    Next car?

    Have you considered a 7 series? Brilliant value, higher base spec and comfortable. I went from my E39's to an F10 and then an F01. The F01 really was a cut above whilst keeping the familiarity of the F10 controls and layout
  2. In laymans terms, try jacking the car up at home, take off the wheel and put the wheel back on using a torque wrench to tighten the bolts and see if this fixes it
  3. Have you tried simply removing and re-fitting the wheels at home to the right torque? It could be something as simple as a stretched bolt which, when the wheel has been removed and re-fitted, is being tightened up and takes alittle while to become slightly loose again. Just a thought

    Ford Kuga - Gone.

    Look slovely that. Its amazing now how modern cars become so quickly uneconomical to repair. I think the future will be worse with batteries etc.. meaning £5-8k replacement cost making them uneconomical to repair at a much younger age.

    How to dispute a property valuation?

    COVID and Brexit are being factored but only for "formal" valuations. Your selling your own property so you can name your price. Don't need a RICS surveyor to value the property, 3 estate agents, check their terms and pick which works for you. The market as said above will dicttate the value by virtue of people making offers for what they feel the property is worth in their view.

    Buying advice for F11

    Do have a look at AUC, seen some petrol F11's going through recently with sensible mileage and spec.

    Tracker Help Needed.

    Did you make a note of the mileage on the odometer when you dropped it off? Easy way of telling how much it's been used and no need for tracker data

    F10 LCI Vibrations at 70mph

    haha yes, Hunter not hunger!
  9. cabin filters would be first port of call. PLus try running it in anger for a while (say 30mins plus) as it may clear itself. Try 15mins on max then 15mins on low to allow the system really to be pushed to it's extremes and see what it highlights?

    F10 LCI Vibrations at 70mph

    Wheel balancing and suspension brushes comes to mind although I would start with wheel balancing. Perhaps consider a 4 wheel alignment on a hunger machine also when balancing so you know the geometry is well. Could even be a buckled alloy which again, is simple to rule out if you have access to a spare wheel?

    Cleaning wheel arches

    Megs APC or any domestic APC with a stuff brush and blasted with pressure washer. I leave it to dwell for 5mins whilst I clean the alloys. then whilst cleaning the arch I also use APC to clan the tyre ready for tyre dressing post completion of the wash

    Ebay GPS trackers, any good

    Lots off different technology out there at the moment for security. From Autowatch Ghost to Pandora and then old favorites like Clifford and Toad (I'm starting to lean towards older independent alarm tech as most thieves these days rely on relay theft. Put them up against an old school Clifford and they wouldn't know what to do! Trackers can be blocked but check out Youtube for videos of Automatrics to see what they can be capable off Disclock and physical means to make your car visibly appear more difficult than the others still remain good options. If using disclock, don't forget to read up on the modification

    Deplorable Nissens UK after sales

    You've fixed it now but if you paid by credit card, would that have offered any protection to cover seeking a refund under the distance selling regulations?

    Need some help here pls

    Shouldn't be £500 at all. Ask the mods to move this topic to the F10 sub-forum and you'll get an answer. Sounds to me like the bulb itself - if halogen
