    Meh... eagle eye hindsight, E39s don't have sharkfin aerials... seduced by the shape of the light cluster...

    Remote BMW app

    Register for BMW ConnectedDrive and link your car, the dealer should have signed you up for free for a bunch of them... I picked up my used BMW a couple of weeks ago and the dealer has put Teleservices, Intelligent Emergency Call, Remote Service, Connected Drive Services and Connected Package Plus on it already.# They may have done the same.

    Said goodbye to the 5 sniff

    Had a last emotional drive to the dealers last week in old 530i, have had it 12 years, it's kept the family safe. Picked up a F31 320i xDrive Will be putting up for sale my Intravee and KCA-420, and the 18" Paras with Vredsteins all round.

    Mixing tyres between axles

    Who remembers these ads from the 70s and 80s!
  10. Outlook Express does work with Win10 using compatibility mode, only problem is that Win10 updates removes it... As others have said transfer to your laptop and use something like Thunderbird to view and keep a back up elsewhere. DVD or USB key.
