Re: Car colours - so dull

I completely agree, and I've never been a fan of the monochrome corporate look.

Re: BMW recall

I haven't "activated" my start/stop (stop/start?) for years as it's bad for the timing chain.

It's only there to satisfy some obscure EU regulation.

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

It just saves all the hassle and money in the long run to upgrade to OEM xenons (been there, done that..) in the first place. I've lost count of the number bumper off/on jobs I've done (on my car and others). Just don't do it my way :- original halogens DEPO set 1 with various sets of ring lighting ...

Re: BMW recall

Mine was done a month or so back, they rang me and we booked it in - didn't get a second letter either.

An Audi !!! :shock:

Did you have to sell the 1'er on, I would have just hung onto it.

My green beemer is probably the same as when you last saw it apart from changing the interior trim from boring silver to poplar grey.

All the best to wife and kid(s).

Re: Thinking of a 130i, spec an issue, what can you retrofit?

Pretty much anything E8* can be retrofitted, it's all down to the size of your budget (and I've spent thousands upgrading mine). Lights: Spec'd with OEM halogen - so, so, but looks boring and cheap Then 2 sets of DEPOs - look better, but absolute rubbish for vision (I bought a second pair thinking I...

Re: BMW recall

The battery cable recall is for LCI versions only (ie. March 2009 onwards), previous versions have a different design. I thought the B+ cable recall affected certain vehicles built between 2007 and 2011. If the previous (and presumably later) design is different and consequently okay, should the re...

Re: BMW recall

Is it worth calling Bmw to hurry this up or are they still awaiting parts for this ? Have you been in touch with your local (supplying?) dealer? Yes, they're probably still waiting on parts but my dealer (the same one that I bought the car new from so they know me anyway) kept me informed on it (al...

Much better than all those monochrome cars around..........
