Mine is still under BMW AUC warranty, would that cover replacing it ?

Re: Shadowline cleaning

yes I wondered about that, must've been the precious owner as I only use water to wash it. Was afraid that might be the answer, is this trim easy to remove/fit if I bought a replacement ?

Shadowline cleaning

Read many threads on this on quite a few forums but nothing I try is touching the discoloured/mottled way the shadowline on the drivers side of my car looks Latest I tried was Autoglym Super Resin Polish which I'd say improved it about 5% Any ideas or anyone else had this problem ? https://imgur.com...

Re: BMW recall

BMW will always do this if taking the car in for warranty work or a service. In fact, it's the first thing I tell them NOT to do. well, that demonstrate how often I have been to an official BMW dealer I guess! are they really that bad? Granted, I would have not been happy with the overall quality i...

Re: tyresonthedrive review ?

No damage to alloys Took about an hour I’ve had the £60 Amazon voucher from Goodyear already-they send you...

Just out of interest, if you don’t mind saying, how much is the power pack from both BMW and Wibbles?

Have been considering it, but unsure on price and haven’t really enquiried about it.
I’d be interested to know this as well especially the BMW price as Wibbles can’t do mine as it’s a 2013

...So I am assuming any models after August 2011 have been fixed? or is it worth ringing up and finding out with your VIN number?
On Watchdog they said cars after 2011 had the part revised to be covered with silver instead of tin

If you want piece of mind give them a ring

Re: I guess that's some of us in here then.

Did they change something after Aug 2011 that means the recall isn’t required ?

Re: E82 261M vs 313M

Like the 313s but prefer the 261s. However if I had a Sport Plus I’d keep the 313s

tyresonthedrive review ?

Anyone used this company ? They seem to have good prices on Goodyear Assym 3s and a £60 Amazon voucher thrown in to boot at the moment.
