    Great - buckled wheels

    Indeed, but I love the badge snobs as it keeps these Korean marques well priced, we have 2 Picanto's and an i20 in the family and they've been faultless, unlike the BMW's Audi's I've had. I would like to try a Stinger gts but I'm slightly put off @ the 6k oil services, the spec is excellent and they get shift on. I have 9 Cee'd 3 estate auto's at work and other than servicing they have had nothing done to them over the last 2 years and 540k miles.

    DIY F11 air spring replacement

    Value issue? Any codes?

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

    I moved mine to a blank plate higher up. Easy to do and enough slack on the loom.

    Led lights on door handle query

    Yeah, that was my point.

    Just above the valve, the rim is ever so slightly out. Just to add, I've just seen on old receipt from one of the works KIA ceeds that had a buckle done last year in Birmingham for £40.

    I had a buckle done on the F11, cost around £60 iirc and they put a temp wheel on for the 2-3 days they had it.

    Appreciating Asset?

    Just updated WBAC and the increase in my mileage and it's gone up by £1k! Very tempted to have 10 months and 8k miles of practically free motoring

    520xD G30 - DRIVETRAIN FAULT

    Only suggestion would be to have the codes read by the dealer or a reputable specialist indi and go from there, otherwise you're taking stabs in the dark.

    I think he means potable.

    De-badged cars? (Excuse to post pictures of new G31)

    Yeah they all graze into the DVLA via an api in any case, it's just less clicks on Vehicle smart and I'm actually speaking to them about some dev work for us.

    Same, been using it for years.

    Strangely my WBAC valuation has just risen today (spam email) by £2k from 18th April to just under what I paid for it back in August 6k miles ago

    Advice appreciated, possibly buying a 540i

    Great to hear, get some photo's up...

    Good to hear and I'm sure you'll love the new car, that engine is a peach.

    Repaired or new rubber?

    New g31 owner tyre setup question

    Personally I'd want confirmation from BMW UK, if a dealer said good morning I'd look outside to check.

    New g31 owner tyre setup question

    Non run flats is a popular choice, the difference in comfort is subjective imo. The staggered set up is there for a reason and changing it would possibly have insurance implications, also from memory the wheels will be a different size.

    Run-flat repairs?

    They do look the same but that's the whole point of the run flats, they sit on the side wall and inflation won't effect that.

    Buzzing noise from Air Con?

    I'd have thought it'd be on some sort of thermistor, but it'd be my first point of call.

    Buzzing noise from Air Con?

    I'd remove it and vaccuum the dust and fluff from the fan.

    Run-flat repairs?

    Never had any issue in the past, had 2 done at 2 different places, remember it's in their interest not to repair them.

    I know (adding non-standard M badges…)

    Each to their own I guess, not for me. Mine came with the self centering caps on (1prev elderly owner so I guess he either specced them or added them) and I get embarrassed when I noticed people looking down at the wheels as I pull up in traffic. https://photos.app.goo.gl/fPY9uxf96aCZe7sw8
