Re: BMW did a number on my alloys

You will find twitter very useful at times like these, companies hate being publicly shamed. Keep it nice, just get the service experience out there.

Re: E88 driver's seat cover ?

I have used a Northcore waterproof cover in mine. Not cheap but well made.

You can have a module added by a firm called Smart top to remote close the roof and it’s plug in and play. But it’s not cheap!

Re: E88 remote window/roof opening disabled since recall?

I think this is outrageous, you took your car in for an update and they have removed a feature which may have been a reason for buying that car.

Re: E87 Rear Driveshaft Removal

Don’t spend an arm and a leg on a set, remember to systematically loosen them to avoid them shearing off, they should ideally be replaced with new bolts (which I did put a drop of thread lock on)
