    New car test drives!

    We had arranged a test drive in a SEAT Ateca at SMC Aldershot today. However, when I queried last week if it would be 'solo' I was told that a salesman must accompany us. I may have risked it but my wife refused as she has elderly parents, so wasn't prepared to risk it. So that was the end of that...

    Not quite a 5er owner yet...

    Welcome to the forum. In the meantime, loiter around the F11 tech section here, plenty of good info and advice to be had there.
  5. Just found out about this from one of our insurance companies in an email from them, so putting this out there for info in case some of us aren't aware. The government has extended all car and light van MOTs that are due on or after 30th March by six months. Our C1 is booked in for a service and MOT on 7th April, so I was wondering what special conditions might become effective if garages closed. Seems to be a practical and sensible move, although vehicles should (obviously) be kept in a 'safe condition' during the extension period.

    Main Dealer Service During Lockdown

    Or.... find a decent BMW indie who will most likely charge a whole lot less than the main dealer. No need to worry about warranty validity either.

    Government Extension to MOT Test/Renewal

    Looks like a free extension, make the most of it!

    Rear Suspension - Extremely stiff

    No idea about the suspension but it sure looks good!

    You could try the 3 Series sub section here, failing that a 3 Series forum.

    Style 66 Staggered 17" Alloy Wheels SOLD

    They look great, but style 66s don't come in 18" diameter- (your description of wheel one and two).

    Welcome to the forum. Have a mooch about the specific F10 technical section here which will provide guidance and other tech assistance.

    Bmw e60 530d

    Welcome to the forum Ben. You will be best off posting this query in the E60/61 Technical section further down the home page. You will reach a specific audience of owners there who may be able to help.

    Alloy Corrosion - Warranty?

    That does sound reasonable - not a lot different to regular alloys.

    DAB Radio - Should This Work In My E39??

    Do you think that's a one off job, or every time you change from one DAB frequency to another?

    Alloy Corrosion - Warranty?

    Completely agree. I'd actually avoid buying a car with diamond cut/lacquered wheels for this exact reason. Hugely expensive to refurb as well, they're really not practical on real world vehicles.

    Silverstone Auction

    Saw this last week. Really enjoy Harry's videos, completely unpretentious and watchable bloke. I always learn plenty from him. If you've not seen it, the Arctic Rolls is particularly well worth watching.

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Having not washed it in nearly seven weeks now due to the alternator imploding, celebrated its return this evening with a good spruce up and detail. Lovely evening for it too. Of course, a good few miles were needed afterwards (officer) to dry off all the nooks and crannies! Old meets new outside my local Vines.

    What colour

    Find the VIN number on your V5 and enter that into one of the BMW spec decoders on the net. If the name of the one I'm thinking of springs to mind I'll let you know.

    You know what Duncan? I thought that myself!
