Re: Houses with garages

We live in a new build and our garage has been built at such an angle, it's almost impossible to get a car in. Took them to court over it and got a nice 10k payout. Car sits on the drive, which to be honest......it would have done anyway.

Re: Scraped Next Doors Wall

surely spraying paint directly onto a car will suffer from spray fallout? Won't the fine paint particles float around in the air before landing on other panels? maybe I'm just mega OCD

Re: No Christmas cards......

You'd be surprised how quiet it is inside their house. Get someone to start her up with you indoors, it's not toooo bad.

as everyone else has suggested, setting off fairly quickly turns the dbs down.

Re: 2019 M140i

The entire article makes for unpleasant reading, but not surprised in the slightest. During my 3hr pushacarupahillathon over the weekend I heard many people say "I used to have a 1 series, never again" so I think a front wheel drive car will sell very well to the general public. I'd love to say it w...

Re: Rejected shadow edition

I'd name the dealer, as to be honest.....I'm struggling to believe a BMW dealership has offered that. Now if you'd have said, they have returned your car full of scratches, kerbed alloys, rattling roof AND boot AND exhaust.......then they changed their phone number and door locks to stop you botheri...

Re: To anyone wondering if winter tyres are worth the money...

The problem with our country and the weather forecasters, is that it is unpredictable.

It can be bone dry one day, and the next day covered in snow. You can't change tyres in the dark cold mornings before work.

You either risk it, or get them fitted
