Re: Any other watch fans on here? - part 2

Does anyone own a Christopher Ward watch? I have been looking at a Christopher Ward C60 Trident 316L Limited edition on their website for £795. Just wondering what they are like? https://media.christopherward.co.uk/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/1800x/040ec09b1e35df139433887a97daa66f/c/6/c60-4...

Re: Official BMW Update: M140i - Whine Video - It's normal :(

I can't believe this is still dragging on for you. I've been reading the thread since I posted a while back and really would have thought something would have been done about it by now. So sorry that this has ruined the brand for you, as someone who has had two 1 Series' and has had a completely dif...

Donington Park Bike Trackday

Don't know if there are any other bikers on here but... went along to Donington at the weekend to see my girlfriend's Dad on his first ever track day. He's always been into his bikes and has previously raced motocross as well as riding road bikes. He went to see some mates on a track day a few weeks...

Re: 560bhp M135i

Just watching this now and logged on to see if anyone else had posted. Amazing performance, if a little OTT for me. I'd never mod anything to this extent, but it is impressive to know how far these cars can be pushed on standard internals. I would be a little hesitant to run standard brakes too but ...

Re: M240i xDrive Review

Definitely interesting to read the comments about it being a BMW UK decision and not a technical one I think it's a no brainer to have XDrive M lites in UK, can't fathom the rationale of BMWUK Although, as a massive Alfa fan, it's good to see BMWUK making a similar c**k up as Alfa have. Alfa Romeo ...

M240i xDrive Review

M240i now available with xDrive in certain markets. Brief review of it here: https://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/bmw/2-series/m240i-xdrive-2dr-auto/first-drive Interesting to read that the BMW xDrive system is better at the whole rear-bias thing than the competitors, restores some faith about the ne...

Re: The end od diesel and petrol cars. WTF???

It was coming sooner or later anyway. As stated above, I think this move towards electric will be controlled by the manufacturers, not the governments. 20 years is closer than you think but the best way to look at it is that we are currently at the pinnacle of the combustion engine, and the cars bei...

Re: Newbie with a couple of questions and a favour!! (M140 manual)

Manual 'box, passive suspension owner over here! I love the manual, no regrets on ordering it. Some say the shift is knotchy but it feels really good to me. On collection day it felt quite rubbery, don't know how to describe it, but over time (8k miles in now) it's bedded in really well. I've never ...

Thanks. I guess it would do no harm to fit it?

Maybe I've missed it somewhere, but what made you want to get out of an M140i less than 12 months old and order a Shadow Edition? Any particular reason?

Re: Any other watch fans on here? - part 2

Here is my Christopher Ward C60 Trident Pro. A long time admirer of all of these fine timepieces, I finally bought myself my first 'nice' watch. I didn't want to spend loads but I really wanted a dive style watch with an automatic movement. I also bought a Zuludiver Cordura strap at the same time bu...
