Re: Head rest wrong way round

Yes, the ratchet release - just on the one side. There is nothing 'clever' about it is there, a secret hidden button on the other side or anything.

I'll give it another go - probably me being a bit tentative in case I broke something.

Re: Engine Oil Warning - Advice Needed

So it sounds like you have done everything by the book. The service request for oil is not a top up request, it is therefore saying you need oil either due to usage or a condition based check. We have established usage is not enough to trigger the request - so as MP points out this appears to be a c...

Re: speccing up a new M140i shad

To keep it under £40k, suggest dropping the adaptive suspension, and fitting after market Bilstiens after delivery. Does that give you enough wriggle room to get the Sun Roof?

I drove like a granny for the first 1,200 miles and kept the rpm under 4k. I’d always wait for the cold start process to idle.
And after 1200 miles? Gradual increase in load until full beans after how many miles? Or max attack from 1200 miles?

Cheers

Cartech ones come boxed and branded, eBay ones in little plastic bags like someone has bought a...

Re: Order cancelled by factory - absolutely gutted!!!!

Maybe some pre reg bargains will pop up as we reach the end of q2? Got my £40k specced 140 at the end of June last year for under £27k as a pre reg with delivery mileage.

Re: Upgrades or mods for under £250

I often wonder if BMW sold the car with black grills, would everyone change them to chrome ;) Agreed. Every enthusiast just wants to make little changes to show they are proud of their car and want to individualise it to differentiate from mass market commodity goods. So no matter what it looks lik...

Re: Windscreen cost?

I'll phone the insurance and see what they say. Not worth £500 to save £140. I read my insurance policy and it does say that one screen change does not affect my No Claims record- but may still result in a premium increase. Two screens would affect my no claims. I'll ask for a genuine part, but don'...
