    Thigh support

    Hi , Just need some info please , my son is in the process of buying a 420d m/sport coupe from car shop Doncaster , we viewed the car on Friday great car but thigh support would not click in when out and kept coming out all the time , they said they would order the part and we could pick up the car today , only now they are saying Saturday at the earliest , so my question is , is it an easy repair or does it mean a new support , thanks

    Chipex paint repair

    Has anyone used chipex ? I have a few stone chips and have been to a few smart paintwork repairers and they tell me to use a touch up as this is what they would do , never liked touch ups but looked at chipex and it looks ok .Have also been told to touch chips up and get a machine polish to get rid but not convinced !

    Which Battery

    Just had new battery fitted , coded and registered fo £130.80 and all my problems have gone , the old battery start capacity was down to 56% so according to the tech as it got worse it would start shutting things down .
