Re: Ditching run flats - compressor or spare?

I guess spacesaver+jack is the ideal if you're comfortable changing a wheel at side of road.
I opted for tyreweld & pump plus RAC membership.

Re: Nostalgia v my 1 series

Must admit I do kinda miss the go-kart/bum on the ground feel of my old 1990 Toyota MR2 GT. No PAS or ABS and despite being rear-wheel drive it coped with snow infinitely better than the 1er.

Re: Ran out of diesel

When did u last reset the average MPG reading ? If uv never reset it, it will be showing the average figure over your total mileage not just the last tankfull. So even if now driving like a nun on valium your current higher MPG will have little impact on the historic total average.

Re: E87 buyers guide?

Re: New member/owner - hello and a few questions

Reading this http://www.bmw.co.uk/en_GB/topics/owner ... ected.html it looks like the send Destination to car stuff is part of Connected and not the Remote Services. But I could be confused - who isnt by all this BMW techno babble :)
