Re: M240i joins Evo Magazine's Fast Fleet (issue 245)

I really like the HK... :roll: Also, the car should do well as a long termer. I think the Mxxxi cars really start shining once you lived with them for a bit, as opposed to producing amazing track times or similar. +1 on both counts. :) I think HK is spot on, was thinking as much whilst out with som...

Tell them you are happy if they can fix it, but would like to be present during the fix so you can take a video of the fix in question. If H&S say that's not possible you would like one of their staff to film it. ;) which will never happen so why bother making silly demands. Might as well stamp his...

Normal noise, had 2 N47’s now both the same.

The ticking is the direct injection iirc.

Re: Changing tyres - insurance implications?

I have experience of this. When our E91 first needed new tyres I swapped them all for none run-flats. As the car was only 18 months old I checked with BMW first and they said fine, no problem as long as all four tyres were done and I added an inflation kit to the boot. Off to Costco, bought 4 Michel...

Re: Help - what am I missing service wise?

Once they start going that's it. My E91 is still on it's original battery amazingly and not had any issues. But my old E81 had a duff battery after 6 years or so with most of the symptoms you mention. I tried using a CTek charger on it, going for long runs etc but it never made any difference. Anoth...

Re: Help - what am I missing service wise?

There are various signs for a failing battery. If the sidelights don't come on when you unlock the car, if the radio won't turn on with just the ignition on, if the see me home headlight flash doesn't work - all signs of a low battery. If you do get a battery, make sure it's an AGM battery and that ...

Re: Advice requested - used LCI M135i or used M140i??

I have driven both the N55 and B58 and whilst the B58 clearly has more low down grunt and is more efficient, I would argue it's more like a turbo diesel in its power output, the N55 feels almost NA and loves to rev out. I see this mentioned a lot on here, and also in some of Joe Achilles videos but...

Re: Help my spec - Poll

I thought the same about the heated wheel, but ordered it anyway as a "why not" option. I will now never order another car without a heated wheel, it's just a very pleasant thing to have and I use it even in the summer when I have the windows down for example. It really is near the top of the option...

This would be a massive shame, wouldn't it? :lol: As helpful as this situation would be, In all honesty; I don't want to invite these kind of people into my home. I'm more bothered about my dog being safe than this car and the situation I'm in. They wouldn't need to come into your home if the keys ...

Did you ever take out Gap insurance on this car, return to invoice etc? Lots of thefts happening at the minute with cars parked on the drive, it would be a real shame if this happened to yours before BMW have a chance to compensate you.
