    If you have a BMW club in your area, you might be able to reach out to them and have a look at another vehicle. Find the component and see where it goes. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Need to change ALL locks and keys.

    New locks and keys, I'm fairly sure the EWS can be reprogrammed with an AK90 and resynched with INPA accordingly. Insurance will cover it. I'm pretty sure your excess won't be more than the cost of having someone do the replacement and coding work for you, but look around and see. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    He's boosted trade, he's got the lowest unemployment figures for decades, people are taking home more pay thanks to his tax cuts, yet the government is earning more in revenue due to increased productivity. He's making every effort to uphold his promises. He's trying to pull American troops out of the Middle East. The markets are up significantly. Thanks to Trumps policies I hope to be building a house for cash later this year. I didn't invest until in the USA after he became president because under 0bama the markets were stagnant. The indicators said take a chance and I did. I was going to pull them last year but more opportunities surfaced and I'm glad I took the chance. Those same indicators are saying invest in GB after brexit. So I'll be looking to invest pretty heavily in British industry provided the government don't mess this while brexit thing up. You're looking at the issue with blinkers on. You see everything they want you to see and you simply don't bother to look for what's underneath. The first step I advise anyone to do is stop believing what anyone shows you and look for the truth yourself. Most people couldn't be bothered to spend a few hours digging into what's behind the stories in the news, seeing what's really false, and what's really going on. I don't even watch TV or pick up a newspaper, because it's all rubbish designed to keep you down. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Biggest temper tantrum in history. There has never ever been a politician who has endured as much scrutiny, or weathered as many daily attacks as Trump. At more than 2 years in, NOTHING of any substance that has been accused has borne out. Not one thing. But they still keep grasping at anything they can find. It's both comical and pathetic. I didn't like him and personally, I still don't, but professionally, as an investor, I like what he's doing, and he's done great things for the USA. And it's just beginning. Wait to see what happens when Mueller finishes his work. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    My. First E39 was a 535i When I coupled it to a 6 speed manual transmission it really came alive. I liked it so much when it got written off a year ago I bought it back at auction Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    To some degree I agree with that. You don't get to where he is in business without a fair degree of bravado and a lot of cunning. I'm not fond of the man. I thought he'd be a disaster, but I've been surprised, and because out of necessity I'd long learned to read deeper than the media before he became president, I can see through the complete BS that's being sold to us. Anyway, I'm not going to argue about it anymore.... Political discussions rarely end well, and most of us here are pretty.set.on their political alignment. No amount of back and forth here will shift anyone. I'll just leave it at, I don't like him, but I do believe he's doing good things for the USA.

    I get my information from the statements from the people involved, the comparison from what's reported with what I can get from people I can reach that are actually there, watching video of the events where availiable, and a lot of independent analysts. There are sometimes huge gaps in what's been said and what's happening, deliberately misleadng ones. I have the time to do this of course, because since my wife passed away almost 8 years ago, I haven't been able to work a traditional job. I invest for a living these days so I spend a lot of time reading analysis on political events and the possible repercussions. I often have to fill in a lot of blanks. Neither the left nor right wing media are truthful. Both have their bias, though the left is markedly worse.

    Can you see the dishonesty and the sheer pitiful behaviour when every single day it's another 'oh we've got him now!' story only to have it retracted several days later? Not a single 'scoop' has stood up to scrutiny, and now Mueller is going to come back with no evidence of collision, and no indictments other than a few procedural related charges and offence that date from before anyone was involved with the campaign. The truth is out there, if you want to go digging for it. None of them left or right media are being honest, and in that Trump. Is right.... They are the enemy of the people. Sure, he's told a few lies... But a lot of what we were told was lies have turned out to be truths much later down the track... Yet you'll never hear any of the accusers apologising. I'm not a Trump supporter, I don't like the man but to be making the progress he is, in the face of such overwhelming opposition from people who just couldn't accept that he won, is nothing short of amazing. After the behaviour of the left side of politics, there's not a hope in hell I'd want to support that. It truly is the biggest temper tantrum in history. If Trump has done anything he's exposed exactly where the hate and bigotry really is in the USA. When Chelsea Manning was contemplating suicide, every so called right wing person I followed in Twitter were sending her messages of support and encouragement, DESPITE their disagreeance with her politics and her actions of the past. Almost every single left wing person I follow took great delight in dancing on TotalBiscuits grave when cancer took him. I've seen pretty bad behaviour from both, but nothing eclipses the sheer hate and willingness to grasp at ANYTHING to try to pull down the man who chose to do what he thought was best for his country. I've seen far more violence, intolerance, suppression of speech, debate, and ideas from the left than I ever have from the right. I'm perfectly happy to take both sides to task when it's necessary. Right up until he ran against Clinton the left loved Donald Trump.. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    Show me any politician that doesn't lie. A lot of what Trump is said to have lied about has also been proven to be true much further down the track. I'm not trusting the media at all lately because so much of what they've published has been proven to be flat out fabrication. None of them can be honest. When I go digging for the truth, it's very often Trump that's been closest to the mark, and that's kinda disturbing. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    I disagree somewhat.. I thought Trump would be a disaster... But the more it goes on, the more I like him. He's everything the government isn't. He's done everything in his power to uphold his election promises... He does what he thinks is the right thing for his country, and let's face it, more jobs, more business, and despite the democrats nay saying about the tax cuts, more revenue than ever before. My investments in USD are looking great. Actually bringing North Korea to the table with South Korea, and getting the nuclear testing stopped. And what seems to be progress with the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsular, I couldn't see any of that happening under Clinton. Now the investigations are wrapping up with no evidence of the Russian collision, in the wake of the biggest temper tantrum in history, I actually think he's going to get a second term and if he keeps going the way he is, he's going to deserve it. I really didn't like the man coming in to the presidency, but he's surprised me and I think he's just what America, and probably the world, needs right now. Sent from my G8141 using Tapatalk

    AutoBoy Black Box It's what I use. It'll automatically start when it detects the cars Bluetooth come on, it will run in the background with the screen. Off or while I'm using the GPS, and it even will automatically upload to YouTube when it's turned off if you want. The pay version is cheap and pretty good for what it is. Even records in UHD.
