    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I thought it was a bit of a laugh, it certainly makes a talking point localy. It may not stay on after the next wash. The sticky stuff is not too good.

    Why thank you sun Dodger will suffice ! I had someone in woking this afternoon ask me what's a 550d like to drive? I said 'don't know mate, I've never driven one' he was slightly perplexed.

    Yes I know but it raises eyebrows with people around here, only us beemer drivers know its tosh, but I'm not selling the car so that's ok.

    Had to re-stick the numbers on, I got carried away with the jet wash and chamois

    I'm happy with the sound as it is, what I'm going to do is adapt the speaker grill to cover the reversing camera monitor so it looks like it belongs in place. I have some blown plastic boards that I can meld in place and cover in vinyl that way it will look like a hood for the small screen.

    I've had my 530 GT 6 weeks now, and I'm loving it. I wish the first wasn't such a tight arse as theres a lot missing, today I found out there's no speaker in the top part of dash.

    Ground cable colour so

    Ok guys thanks but, the camera wifi needs power from the reversing light to work at the correct time. Using the body as earth

    Ground cable colour so

    So I've fitted a boscam reversing camera to my F07 but can't get it to work when the boot is closed! When it's open, no problem but you need to see the ground not sky. When the hatch and boot lids are shut they're not earthed. Does anyone know the cable colours for the rear light cluster? One of them must be ground.

    Don't use the auto hand brake function, and haven't tried it either, the car should hold its position on a rise whilst in gear(my last f10 did) I just wondered if the gearbox needed oil etc. No ones been in the console as far as I know. The handbrake works as it should during parking etc.

    No original fault, I've had the car 3 weeks and it doesn't hold on a hill (auto box) so I thought I'd get the gearbox diagnostics checked, all clear except this one fault showing. Communications bus fault but which one and when?
