Re: DASH CAMS, & why they are a good idea

Exactly ^^
Its bad enough for a car to face that hazard, let alone a biker.
Too many incompetent drivers that just do not think of other road users, and indeed the most vulnerable road users.

Re: BMW recall

If it’s cranking then it won’t be anything to do with the battery cable.
It’s all or nothing when that fails, no power what so ever.

Re: 130i Calipers

I did, great service from autodoc and they fitted fine. You pay a surcharge so initially the calliper is more expensive than shown, however if you can be bothered to (which I can’t) hen return your old unit and they’ll reimburse you the surcharge fee

Re: BMW recall

It’s definitely not a replacement cable, hence the title “install the B+ repair cable”.

Re: BMW recall

As above, the front fuse box is removed from its bracket, and the cable is cut and crimped on. It’s onky the connection point that is faulty, not the cable it’s self.
It’s the glovebox and surrounding panels that are removed.

Re: M140, just had the back box replaced.

It sounds like they have adjusted the back box too much and it’s putting strain on the rubber mounts which may be sending vibrations through the chassis.
Get it back to the dealer for them to have a look. If possible ask to demo it to their Master Tech.
