Re: Quick Question - Debadging

Dental floss and a hairdryer will do the trick. You may need a little elbow grease and sticky stuff remover to get the last bits of foam off.

Re: Detailer in South East

Where in Kent are you? If your close to East Sussex, check out Touch Of Gloss in Hailsham. 2 stage is around £600 for a 1 series I think.

I gave the EGR valve a clean up as it had been playing up ever since I brought the car. YouTube videos imply it’s a 10 minute job to remove, it took nearly 90!
Any improvement?
It’s been 3 weeks, and it’s not played up once, so I’d consider that a win!

The exhaust flap option doesn’t work on E series cars.

Re: BMW 118D shocking snow performance!

I had never considered winter tyres before, but seeing and reading up on the effectiveness of them this week, I will definitely be more prepared next winter!

Re: Toll Road Charge

I’d forgotten to pay the dart charge after crossing the Dartford crossing a couple of weeks ago, I’d totally forgotten about it until a letter came through the post. It turns out for a first offence they let you pay the £2.50 and don’t fine you, which is nice of them!

What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

I kinda like that. Any idea where Santa might have acquired it? The tag said from Santa, so I’m assuming his elves made it by hand, but they probably stole the design from https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B004QDBNYE/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1514494972&sr=8-9&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=bmw+al...

Re: Star Wars - The Last Jedi - SOME SPOILERS

With regards to the acting... the relationship between Finn and Rose seemed so forced. I felt there was literally no chemistry between the two at all. I suppose this movie serves as the old cast finally letting go of the baton to the new cast. Here's hope that the next installment is a good one whe...

I really enjoyed it, I went and saw it in 4d which was fun.

Re: What Did You Do To Your 1 Series Today?

Fitted the gloss black trim today. Probably took nearly 5 hours of swearing, mainly to work out how some of the electrical connections come apart and how to get the console out past the handbrake but I managed, with only a few cuts to my hands (and three left over screws from refitting). https://upl...
