    lol, only saying what I see/have seen.

    You do come across as a pretentious little prick.

    Time to Change the Company Car

    To be fair, anyone can pop out and lease most cars nowadays.

    Trump, like him or loath him?

    Indeed, and scary what gets regurgitated/shared etc without fact checking and then how quickly it gathers pace nowadays.

    Yes, similar to dishes soaking I reckon but a quick pre was does the same imo. Detailing is really a personal thing but I see little value in a lot of it or any ROI as some of it combined with your time (and time you could be doing other things) soon adds up. Again, all just imo of course.

    battery charger/trickle charger what to buy

    Aldi are doing a cheap charger at the moment for £12.99 says it's auto trickle. Be interested in the real world difference between this and a comparable v/A CTek.

    ^^ +1 I also remember reading somewhere (possibly on DW) that it has little/no real world effect. I also bought a 5l tub and never got round to buying the gun after reading it.

    Are you sure that you're not one of the old gadgies who keep seeing accidents in their mirrors?...
  14. I'd put a shiny new pound on the dealers kicking the arse out of this and claiming for new parts when they are sent away as "checked OK".

    battery charger/trickle charger what to buy

    I've just wired up the ctek direct to the battery terminals on the kids picanto. Easiest option imo.

    This couldn't actually happen, could it?

    It's headlined to get clicks, I've seen similar doing the rounds on social media. My F11 had a speed limiter and I loved it for the average cameras but it was obviously set by the driver so irrelevant in the respect they want you to believe.

    F10 boot release switch in footwell.

    I used a fine sharpie on the passenger heater fan switch, the wife's nails scratched it with a similar amount of damage. That's even easier as it's a straight line, the fan one is all curved. When I'd done you honestly couldn't tell and this is in direct line of sight. Shit photo but this was after

    Probably derv and oil brought up to the surface with the recent warm weather

    Swap out the F10....?

    Out of those and depending on the engines (personally I'd only look @ 6 pots) I'd be back in a 5. Keep us posted and good luck

    Parking brake switch

    I'm sure I don't need to say but I'd use a plaggy trim removal tool.

    Household gas leak!

    Spookily I had a call from the plumber servicing the appliances in a house I let out, he's had to cap the gas as it failed the drop test. He's looked for the leak and says it's tiny but had to cap it as there is no tolerance when the appliances are discon. So he's back on Wednesday to investigate further and luckily the carpets are up as it's just coming to the end of a refurb at the moment otherwise it would be a ball ache. As he pointed out even though it's tiny is could be escaping up a cavity or filling a void somewhere, worst case I'll need to re-pipe from the meter, best case it's the meter or network pipe which will obvs be FOC. Hope you get it sorted.

    From a 5 to a 3?

    Am I mad, I have a F11 530d with lots of nice extra's (10k ish) but keep hankering after an xdrive. Although I love the 530 I have been looking @ 335d xDrive's around the 14 plate for a while now and am getting near to taking the plunge. Am I mad?

    From a 5 to a 3?

    The Navi is fine and it updates foc on mine, but the camera's are poor, it's not the screen as when you watch media the resolution is excellent. I held out for their equivalent of the widescreen but it's smaller @ 8' I find it quite intuitive but again not as good as the 5. Sounds like you have a similar dilemma to me, I needed a hatch/estate for the small dog we have so that ruled a lot of others out and the A7 is a nice looking car and still quite rare imo. It has acoustic glass (double glazed) and is extremely quiet in the cabin, I had the 5 for a couple of weeks alongside and the cabin noise was very notable, everybody comments on the level of noise in the cabin and I have the parcel shelf out for the dog so I guess it could be quieter if I ever put it back. I liked the Merc CLS Shooting brake but it didn't feel as nice to drive.

    From a 5 to a 3?

    I did change and went against all the advice on a poll I did and currently drive an v6 tdi A7. Cracking car but there are a couple of bits that are not a patch on the 5 and I'm pretty sure I'll be back in a BMW shortly (once the warranty is up) but not sure if it'll be a 5,6 or even a 7.

    He only ran into you once, the BMW dealer took numerous attempts to rear end you, how much do you hate them.
