Re: Door Ding Repairs Leicester

If the paint isn't damaged you may want to consider a paintless dent removal firm. I've used Dent Devils in the past who were very good but they are a franchise so it'll depend on who you get.

Re: 118 or 120

You will notice the difference between the 118d and 120d. I went from a 320d E90 to a 118d E87 then a 120d F20 xDrive and the difference was night and day. I actually found my fuel economy worse on the 118d because I found I was pushing it more than I would do with the 120d.

Re: Where do you keep coins?

I start of keeping coins in my front pockets but invariably they tend to fall out and down the side of the drivers seat. So now I simply reach down the side and back of the seat and there's always a few quid lying around for parking machines :wink:

Re: Car broken into on driveway

Might be a bit late now. But the BMW connected app shows the last time the car was locked. I wonder if there is someway of getting a list from BMW of all the times it was looked. it might put you mind at rest if you hadn't locked it in the first place. Only for those who have the full Remote Servic...

Re: What is wrong with some people

Hopefully this is a good a place as any to ask this, saves starting a new thread anyway... What's the best course of action with this? What products/procedure will I need to tackle it? :?

Re: What is wrong with some people

With the help of some tar remover, polish and some elbow grease I've managed to clean it up a bit, looking better but still needs sorting.

As I mentioned I wasn't in the car when it was damaged otherwise I would've done something about it.

Re: What is wrong with some people

From the photo, a lot of that looks like it will polish out; the scrape down to the black plastic will need a smart repair or similar, but I'd suggest a going over with a mildly abrasive polish will make the rest look a lot better. Hope you manage to get it sorted. A lot of the clearcoat has been s...

Re: What is wrong with some people

Just got back from Sainsbury's and they don't have cctv camera coverage for the car park, only the entrance and atm machines.

Re: What is wrong with some people

Gutted for you. I assume there was no CCTV in the area? Problem is I don't know when or where it happened, although I'm sure it was in the previous 24hrs. I was at a few places during the day and it's also possible that it could've happened whilst parked up at home. How easy is it to get hold of CC...

What is wrong with some people

Having posted about a (self inflicted) front bumper scrape I got back in February, I got back to my car today to discover this: https://i.imgur.com/ywRtf7C.jpg https://i.imgur.com/KSU3YEr.jpg Definitely not my fault this time and no note or anything. By the looks of it it seems someone has clipped m...

If you have a Connected Drive subscription, then the UK maps should automatically download and update.
Should but not always the case. Like I said I've never had an auto update since I got the car.

Re: Black panel problem

Completely normal. The black panel is simply a small LCD screen designed to blend in with the dash but in certain conditions, ie, when it's dark you'll notice the outline of the screen because, like all LCD screens that have a backlight, they'll never be completely "black".
