I'd suggest you drop a pm to johnboyblue who's sold his diesel version but could probably give you some good advice. 8)

Re: BMW 225i x-drive Active tourer

Hi Paul Initial thought being check a variety of differing websites such as https://www.germancarforum.com/f/bmw-2-series.99/, ignore the anti-brigade because they're not paying for the car and also have a look at the main BMW Technical Site, since changing in November I've removed quite a few of th...

Re: Brake feel / responsiveness

Hi Babaa Not certain as when we had our 218d M Sport the brakes were keen from day 1 and even when we sold the car with similar mileage definitely no issues such as you've described, I'm no expert by any means but perhaps they need to be bled as it sounds like you could have a little air in the syst...

As the title says, has anyone done this or got pictures of their 2 series with 666m competition wheels fitted?

Thanks
As this section is dedicated to the F45 and F46 I'd be surprised if anyone fitted this type of wheel to an Active Tourer! :lol: 8)

Hi Adel

Welcome to the forum but unfortunately you'll need to use a translation program as some people may not understand German.

Re: All change

John Very interesting thread in several ways as I've just turned 70 in December and my other half collected a Mercedes AMG GLA45 which is incredibly quick and a complete turnaround for us as we were considering i3S, 225xe or possibly X2 as a replacement for the 2AT but having driven the AMG everythi...

Re: Newbie & Future New 225XE Owner

I bought a 225xe M Sport last September. Really enjoying it. Make sure you go for the heads up display and big screen sat nav at the minimum. The demo car I had was fitted with the HUD but as I wear polarized glasses a lot when driving it was useless - the kids thought it was great though. Gone for...

Re: Window Tints

Hi Dean We've had four vehicles tinted over the past six years including 1 series coupe, 2 series Active Tourer and now our MB AMG GLA45 however all by the same company irrespective of factory finished glass as we both find it's not dark enough. Normally medium tint to rear, side windows, sun strip ...

Perhaps you'd be better using the right area as this is for the Active Tourer drivers. :lol:

The Zenith is no doubt a very good watch but due to its style it will only appeal to a small majority.
Completely agree with this, I've got differing watches including Tags, Omega, Breitling and so on but unfortunately this doesn't do anything for me at all.

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

Think perhaps you need a couple more photos, details and the value you're looking for but don't forget to add a sheet showing your user name with rough location otherwise you'll be bounced.

Re: Time for a new car...

We did take considerable time with the decision to buy what will probably be almost our last car and what made it was the smooth auto box combined with take-off which I'm used to in my company car, no regrets whatsoever at this time in changing to MB.
