    Flooded engine / bore wash

    my 325i is prone to bore wash as well, mis fires, check engine light the lot! it got worse after i replaced the ccv and pipe work. looks like high oil use can combat this issue lol just dont swich it off cold

    Metal sounding rattle

    I had a horrendous rattle on mine when in drive and held on the brakes, sounded like the gearbox was going to fallout. turned out it was the heat shield over the rear box, no fixings left holding it up! fixed and no more rattle, worth a look on your car yes?

    Electric cars, good or bad?

    watch the cost of electricity go up if electric car ownership becomes widespread our lovely government would miss all that fuel duty £££££
