    Go for a 530 at a minimum Have you driven the 520?

    Machine Polishing marks...

    Because it would go back to another dealer for correction - not that they may be any better than the dealer i bought from!!

    Machine Polishing marks...

    I thought as much!! i actually own a machine polisher, so should be able to tackle it myself, just wondered the chances of them doing something about it! i thought I’d better not hold my breath!!!

    Machine Polishing marks...

    Good Afternoon All, ive recently bought an F10 from Sytner. the car looks like it’s had a machine polish (either at the dealer or from previous ownership) and you can see marks on the car from certain angles when the sun hits it.......looks like monogramming/polishing trails....... i can’t take any pics of it at the moment, as it’s back with the dealership to get an alloy refurbished. What are the chances of the dealership taking ownership of this? They are not local to me, so I can’t just take it back for them to have a look.....

    Searching for an F10

    Totally agree, if you can hold off on a 535i then that would be the best option, unless of course you can go for the M5

    What do you have as security?

    Do you have the steering wheel cover too?

    Does anyone have a disklok? I've read that they can damage the steering wheel even if you have a cover on it

    This needs to be reversed ASAP

    Wow!! Absolute madness! And the police cannot get a grip on any of this

    I'll have a think about a steering lock, although i've heard that some of the disklocks can damage the steering wheel even though you have a cover on there I think i'm pretty much sorted when it comes to home security... What are these dinger accounts? Just done a search and cannot find anything like your pic.......

    Thanks for the input everyone..... I already have fairly good security setup for home, but this still doesn't deter the odd cretin coming and testing car/house doors to see if they're locked/double locked..... Disklock seems like bit of a chore, but a stoplok may actually be OK...... I'll do further research on immobilisation and then have a think about what i decide on And the crooks round our way just target anything decent, doesn't necessarily have to be brand specific
  14. I took delivery of my new F10 today (535i ) and have been thinking about security...... I've been looking at the Ghost immobiliser which seems to get good reviews. On my old F10, i had a device (OBD Portector) which disabled the OBD port until a proximity card was touched and a isolator switch switched off before the port becomes active..... I'm now wondering what to go for next.......Not too keen on the disklocks etc, as can be a bit of a pain to put on/remove and can get a little tedious..... I already store the keys in a Faraday wallet..... What do you guys use (if anything)? Thanks Vishal

    Time to say goodbye...

    I've already mentioned it in an email, and he's said that the master technician will be giving the car a once over. I suppose all should be OK, as i'll have the warranty to fall back in a worst case scenario
