    Style 66s & tyres (straight set, not staggered)

    We're the 66s fitted to tourings not staggered? I seem to remember reading that somewhere, or am I talking utter tosh?!

    Looks like a clean example Scott.

    Sunday 16th September

    Yep. Check out the events page on the BMWCC GB home page. I'm actually leaving home in an hour or so to go to the monthly meet at Shoreham Airport terminal this morning.

    My first E60

    Welcome to the forum. This is just the newbie intro section, so post this and any other technical queries into the E60/61 area which you'll find lower down the home page.

    Insurance Bull****

    Been with Admiral for over 10 years with two of our three cars. The BMW and Zafira are a multicar policy and hover around £500 a year for both, fully comp. The renewal is always higher than the previous year, but not by much. Happened at renewal last month so I called them up as I usually do and asked them to lower it, which they did, to the same as the previous year. I appreciate of course that driver ages, postcodes, NCB and penalty points all affect the premium.
  7. I can definitely recommend Walkers Autotech as I used then for a few years. The only reason I don't now is because BMR Performance in Turners Hill, West Sussex, are 8 miles away, rather than 25 miles away. Thoroughly recommend them as well. Still a distance from you though. There must be a recommended indie somewhere up your way.

    That was Fort 'Chillywind' if you remember!

    Meets around Surrey?

    ASHFORD – held the first Sunday of every month at Evegate Business Park, Station Road, Smeeth, Ashford, TN25 6SX between 9am - 12am. HAMPSHIRE – on the last Tuesday in the month at Jolly Farmer, Binsted Road, Blacknest, Alton, GL34 4QD usually meet 19:30. SURREY – at the Fairmile, Portsmouth Road, Cobham, Surrey, KT11 1BW (01932 868141) on the Third Sunday in the month, usual meet about 13:00. SUSSEX - meeting every 4th Sunday of the month - 8.30am - 11am at Shoreham Airport, Cecil Pashley Way, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 5FF. Shoreham early on a Sunday would be a decent and not unpleasant run from Fetcham. I'm not a million miles away from there.

    Meets around Surrey?

    If you're looking for regular and organised meets in the south-east, BMWCC GB have one in Kent and West Sussex every month (as well as locations nationwide). This Sunday 24th March is the Sussex micro meet at Shoreham Airport which I intend to go to. I'm a member but that's not a prerequisite for attending. Take a look at the BMWCC GB website and you'll find all the info there. As an unashamed 'plug' for the club, membership costs just £45 for the year, so along with 10% discount off all purchases at Halfords, numerous main dealers and some indies (BMR Performance in Sussex amongst them) you can easily get a return on that initial outlay. I certainly did after a couple of months! Plus all the other benefits and info that goes with it. Anyhow, this Sunday, 08:30 - 11:00 at the main terminal building, Shoreham Airport, BN43 5FF.

    Still is...
  15. Looks superb Dan. 18s will be icing on the cake, so to speak. I think you should reconsider your thoughts of removing the tints...
