    We buy any car price?

    The guy I dealt with was quite reasonable with me to be fair to him. I can imagine some people getting offended. The car before me was a badly modified sheddy mk5 Golf GTI, so I can imagine that deal must have been pretty low ball.

    People do the strangest things.

    So irritating, and so unsafe.

    Cruise Control in Eco Pro Mode

    If economy is what you want, that sort of behaviour is good for economy. If you imagine an undulating road then the car will be applying the throttle on uphill sections then the brakes on downhill. There comes a point where that is wasteful, as the cruise control would be better to allow some over speed on a downhill then be below the target speed uphill. From a economy perspective of course.

    Retro Fit Towbar on to an F11

    Update: got a Witter detachable towbar with Westfalia dedicated electrics. Works fine with respect to reversing camera and power to pin 10. Got fed a lot of crap about coding it in to make the reversing camera zoom in on the tow bar.

    We buy any car price?

    My WBAC story went as follows: Dealer offered £5250 trade in, WBAC offered 6000 online, on seeing it reduced to about 5300. Some of that just crap (do they really expect a car with 128k miles have no stone chips on the bonnet?). But there was some rust showing through rear arches. Had that repaired under warranty for free. Sold for 6350 via auto trader. Moral of the story - I could have had the money there and then a month ago, but with some leg work I’ve got about £1000 more.

    How annoying!

    Soo irritating. I must have about 5 of the Apple lighting headphone adaptors. I’ll loose one, buy a new one, then immediately find the lost one.

    Silver PY24W bulbs?

    That's a PY21W. Only PY24W at Eurocarparts is definitely orange! https://www.eurocarparts.com/p/philips-py24w-amber-bulb-12v-24w-single-pack-481772380

    BMW Car Magazine

    My current subscription list is Evo and BMW Car. BMW Car is OK; but I got a 50% off subscription deal a while back so its pretty cheap. Love Evo magazine - it really focusses on what a car is like to drive. I sometimes buy Car if something catches my eye. Outside of cars I get Runners World and Singletrack. Runners World really does recycle the same old stuff - but its worth flicking through. This months is a good issue with a long interview with Paula Radcliffe and an article about the Ineos 1:59 challenge.

    Silver PY24W bulbs?

    Can you get Silver PY24W bulbs? I'm looking to swap out the standard ones to avoid the 'fried egg look', but I can't find any. It looks like they might have been discontinued as they can be seen here: https://www.hids-direct.co.uk/1x-philips-py24w-silvervision-bulb-signal-indicator-light/ Its for a F11 LCI if it makes any difference.

    V-Power for 540i?

    There's zero useful information in that article!

    Potential F11 buyer- Winter tyres

    Winter tyres are amazing. After trying them I promise you'll be a convert. They aren't just snow tyres, they are winter tyres. Better in the rain, and the cold.

    Nice. I had a Williams that I sold about 5 years ago. I loved it.
