  1. Official oil and filter service, reset idrive. Tried a Bosch filter, seems good quality and fit. Oil was from Amazon at £25 per 4 litres, I bought 3x so I could do the interim oil on my wife's 1er. A lovely day for it Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    F10 door corrosion

    Yes agreed with above, although factory paint is near 115micron to be more precise. Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    F10 door corrosion

    I believe it's a combination of paint depth/coverage in that area and then the way moisture can sit near to and under the trims. I believe someone said it was rectified in MY2016 not sure how, with regards to warranty on the work, I asked this when mine was in and I was told that your 12yr anti corrosion is still in place. So if it comes back again in mine I have 5yrs left on that. Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    Bluetooth problems

    Updated my car on the BMW forecourt when I got it back this afternoon from the anti corrosion work on all four doors. Stated 1min pre install and it all updated correctly! Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    F10 door corrosion

    Second time lucky, all fixed and looks really good, it seems like they have painted all 4 doors complete but I maybe wrong. What's quite good is I had a few chips from before I owned it in the door edge that are now gone. She looks like a new car, literally not a mark on it and as I have all 4 wheels refurbished last year also not marked. [emoji108] Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk

    Tyre advice

    1. Yes, you shouldn't really mix on an axle thats all. 2. Varies, you can get good Kwikfits and bad ones like any garage including BMW dealerships! Just keep an eye on them if you can, make sure they torque the wheel nuts correctly and dont use a windy gun. Dont let them sell you anything else, unless needed. I was going to say dont go to BMW directly, they will only charge a premium on top of a tyre place.

    I have Goodyear Excellence RFT 245 40 19 98Y all round and have been very pleased with them, as it came off the production line too. https://www.blackcircles.com/catalogue/goodyear/excellence/245/40/R19/Y/98/f?tyre=27709572 https://www.kwik-fit.com/tyres/search/details/goodyear/goodyear-excellence/T1005581 10% off here if you buy 2.

    Tyre advice

    Most places will not repair a run flat also any tyre wont be repaired if close to the edge(s), and if they are repaired already they cannot be repaired twice. As above there doesnt look much left at all so better to get a new tyre, impressed you got 20k out of them so they must be quite low already.
  15. Generally from my own experience and others no they don't fail like that. They fail randomly due to the way the bag is sitting and folds over itself, also as they are pin prick holes the compressor doesn't need to be running to keep them up the whole time. Sent from my SM-G996B using Tapatalk
