    Spare Wheel

    This was what I was thinking, which would mean front and rear are only 2mm difference. But does the 37 fit in the wheel well ??

    Yeah they do look pretty crap hence I thought I could get away with a style 37 for a spare. That Goodyear tyre looks like it’s never seen the road (and probably won’t on my watch )

    I was more worried about the rear and ‘winding’ up the diff with different rolling radius’s.

    Is that right Dan a 18” will not fit ! Damn ! This is what I have at the moment Is this tyre (225/55/16) good for either axle then if needed ?

    I currently run staggered style 37’s on my 39. Ideally I would like one of these as a spare, so what tyre combo would I need or would it be non compatible because of the stagger ? Currently 235/40/18F and 265/35R Just had a look at my spare, not sure what style it is but the tyre is 225/55/16.

    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    They told me the power would be increased from the puny 25w up to 45 or 50w. Is this a big improvement Luke ? I have already changed the standard front speakers for an Infinity set up with tweeters but obviously the standard BM54 output doesn’t really push them.

    This was the original plan when the BM54 started playing up. Already been in contact with them to discuss the upgrade and have some phono’s added. But then the nav drive (mk4) started being glitchy as well so thats why I’ve started looking at these Xtrons/Eonon units. The quote from Cartronics to fix both units is more expensive than the link to the one I’ve posted above.

    Thanks for the input guys. @Chris28 that looks really good but not really what I’m after. I loathe getting rid of my OE setup so anything that replaces it must look at least similar

    Busterbvi are these not the same then for considerably cheaper ? Whats the average price for the 5m lead to link screen to boot anyone ? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332883442007
  12. I know this topic has been covered a few times but I’m useless at searching for stuff (just ask the mrs ) I really wanted to keep my OE nav and screen setup but it seems I’m fighting a losing battle with my BM54 and the nav works when it wants too but is still dated. So I have been looking at the touchscreen ones on the ‘bay but bewildered by the choice. I don’t want to pay a lot cos I’m tight so no NBT or anything fancy. Hopefully I can sell my mint widescreen OE unit for £100-£120 so ideally I will only want to add another couple of hundred to it. I want an Android based one yes ? Heard talk about these Eonon units, anyone have any reviews about these ? Also what’s the going rate for the extra lead I need to connect to my multiplayer in the boot ? Tia, Chris

    Strange noise !

    I’m thinking of something along those lines. Just found out it doesn’t do it all the time ! My friendly mech is going to have a look on Saturday so hopefully it’s something silly.

    Not 100% it’s not the box Dan but like I said it does not do it when stationary and reverse is selected only when I start to move .
