    Wheel Coating

    I use Autoglym every other week. Wheel dust never pits wheels, dust washes away with wool mitt, inside of wheels cleaned with wheel woolies.

    Speed Limit Info Group Buy

    I bought my car after this thread started. I had my Speed Sign switched on by Simon, extremely efficient service, nice man and very diligent about doing a good job. Highly recommended. This is my car on his Facebook page.

    Detailing Thread for G30/31

    I like some others who have commented here don’t believe the longevity claims of after market “protective applications and coatings ” and therefore see little value in them. I believe the best results are achieved by very regular detailing using the correct products, processes and cloths to give great finishes.

    Engine Rough Running- off she goes on a recovery truck

    As a new to BMW owner I am very disappointed to read this post. I have come from 15 + years of Mercedes ownership and I am in full agreement about what Andrew530dMSport says about their attention to roadside recovery, replacement vehicle and speed to repair a vehicle, I used it twice. Lets hope BMW sort their issues if this is widespread.

    Mine gets equally dirty pidgeonpost, it is this morning. A weekly wash is so much easier than a major blitz. Once you get a level of finish and maintain that then the easier it is. The best example is deep polish of the wheels every couple of months and a weekly rinse. I never use a wheel cleaner, I don't have to, the dirty just washes off with a lambs wool mitt. Regards Richard

    I bought my 2019 model G30 540i, a dealer demonstrator, in mid March and have spent the last few weeks detailing it to bring it towards a finish I like whilst adding 2,000 miles great driving miles at the same time. I am a first time BMW user and enjoying the new experience.
