    Temp gauge

    Funny, isn't it. Put it in to CPC a few weeks back, who said it's cooling just fine but probably a cluster issue. I, like you lot, don't buy that. Will investigate imminently as I want to change the car for something else, and would always prefer to sell a car with no faults.

    Temp gauge

    The temp gauge in my 530i reads at the first white line during normal use. It's been plugged in, and it's sitting at the correct temp at that point on the gauge. All my previous have sat at the 12 o'clock position. However, on warm days in traffic it'll get hot. Yesterday when it was 29C ambient and I was in London traffic, I got the Coolant Temp warning on the dash. Put the blower on at max heat and it drops back down. So two questions: 1) Should it sit at 12 o'clock like my other ones have? 2) It is really getting hot in traffic, isn't it?

    Euro Road trip!!!!!!!

    They're the official BMW winter wheel option! But yes, it does make it look a bit like an old CID car.

    Euro Road trip!!!!!!!

    Nice trip. I went a bit further than you back in November, but did some of the same route. Looks like you got lucky with the weather!
