Re: BMW Show - Toddington Services Convoy

Just take it easy on the run in lads. The plods are always there with the speed traps. Easy money for them.

Re: Festival of Speed tickets bought

Brother had diabetes and was diagnosed with Crohn’s earlier in the year. When the two treatments were conflicting with each other the consultant decided to do some body scans. They found a tumour on his kidney. Because he was on steroids they couldn’t start any treatment until they slowly weaned him...

Re: N47n timing Chain issue?

I don’t know but it’s worth a phone call to see if they can do anything.
Does it do it when the cars stationary ?

I was offered a free Silverstone F1 ticket today. Reserved grandstand seat and accommodation for the weekend. Trying my hardest to resist.

Re: Kwikfit wouldn’t repair run flat

I’ve got to know the lads at our local branch because I use them for my van servicing and MOT’s. They always give me good service, good advice and never try and fob me off. I would even trust them to service our cars once they are out of manufacturers warranty.

Re: N47n timing Chain issue?

If you think it could be the timing chain get it checked as soon as possible. You’d be better replacing the chain and tensioners than rebuilding the engine if it fails badly.
Could be worth approaching Bmw in case it slipped through the recall.

Re: plasti-dipped my wheel

If your happy with it mate go for it. Once you find the colour you like I’m sure you’d be able to get them powder coated the same.
The way you are doing it is reversible so a great way to experiment with colours and looks.
