Out of interest has anyone that declared an LSD to their insurance company had any change in the price of insurance?
I did, Admiral, no premium increase just the admin fee balls.

Re: Online entertainment voucher discounted

Hmm take that as a no, though itcsays you get sent a voucher which can be activated up to 3 years, however activation is by starting online in the car, so if you're already using it then I guess the existing voucher gets overwritten? Seems daft if only those who coincide with the black Friday time ...

Re: Online entertainment voucher discounted

Does anyone know if buying it now stacks it on top of an existing subscription or just wipes out existing subscriptions and starts afresh? Mine doesn't run out until early next year but I'll likely renew again so if I can buy now and it just adds 12 months to my existing subscription then its worth...

Re: Limited Slip Differential working with traction control?

O have the mperformance diff and it does cut in before the traction in comfort with traction fully enabled. The reason i got on was in cold temps I got cheesed off with the left right tugging of the traction control not letting up when trying to accelerate. I'm happy with the more consistent behavio...

Re: Music Import 225XE

No storage then by the look of it, I'd assumed it would be the same as my 140, glad i didn't spec it for the wife's.

Re: First BMW F46

Welcome to the club, I've recently picked up a 220d xdrive to go with my m140i. Spotify is usually dependent on the phone in question, the wife's sony is a bit if a pain compared to the iphones. Rolling back the Bluetooth software to an earlier version has worked for others.

Re: M140i vs Golf R

I have always thought BMW UK are missing a trick by not offering an X drive option on the m1/240i's because IF they did they would steal many customers who lean towards AWD VAG variants, in fact I know quite a few people who won't buy the BMW because it doesn't have AWD. The fact is, at least 50% o...

Re: LCI details

Picked up the wife's 220d xd on Friday, flamenco red with oyster and wood looks great to me. Not a punchy as I thought it would be but this is probably due to my daily drive being a 140. Dashboard is a lot nicer than the 1. Make sure you add the spare wheel and roof bars if you want to use a roof ra...
