Re: ANOTHER attempted theft

Same advice I give to everyone. Disklok is the most cost effective deterrent 3-star locks are the most cost effective preventative fix. Edit: Removing and replacing a disklok twice a day would be far less of a pain than constantly shuffling around cars Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk This. Eve...

Re: Potential M140 attempted theft today

Just to add to the rants here - The whole thing is just depressing when thought about You work hard, pay tax on your earnings which are supposed to provide public service (police etc), you then pay a lot of money to get a car you really want, paying VAT and God knows what other taxes on that - suppo...

Re: Anyone else trying to sellat the moment?

Got my m135i for sale atm and finding selling it a bit more tricky than expected, had it for sale a few weeks with only one call with a low ball offer. Its a mint car with great spec in a good colour combo and for sale at what i think is a good price. Was wondering if it’s probably just this time o...

Re: Weird resale question, "poverty spec" M135i LCI

Without trying to sound too obvious keeping it looking good with a low as possible mileage will always help. When I bought my z4m I had a choice of 2 cars, I opted for the more expensive one that had less kit on it simply because the mileage was lower and it was in better overall condition. Motoris...

Re: Beware the price crash...

There are a huge amount of cars now being driven around on PCP, where the car is being financed as cheaply as possible on a monthly basis. With no likelihood of it ever being purchased or gaining any significant equity. It is effectively renting. But it allows the 'owner' to drive a far more presti...

Re: Second set of alloys for winter tyres

I certainly understand the case for steel wheels for the winter but having only recently collected my car, I'm loathe to switch off the ferric grey alloys which I think look great with the car (Estoril blue). Are you not a fan of the 436m's then Tricky401? Like you Shadak, I'm thinking it is easier...

Re: Your next car?

I've just taken delivery (Monday night) of my new E-Class - got a great lease deal on an E220d SE - switched to this after the A6 I ordered showed no signs of arriving any time soon. Big change from the M135 but loving it so far, so relaxing to drive with the auto and great suspension etc Not a 'dri...

Re: Standard HiFi v HK, my experince.

Having had a number of standard sound system 1 series courtesy cars I wouldn't call it "little" in extra sound quality tbh.
The standard system is one of the worst I think I've heard in a car particularly given the 1 series positioning as a more premium hatch.

Re: Looking at a Golf GTE

What kind of driving will you be doing? Is it town or mostly motorway?
I'd probably go for the 320d if motorway driving
The GTE is interesting but from what I read it's a bit compromised as a result of it's added electric bits

So I have just had my Car back From BMW eastern In Edinburgh to have the exhaust looked at as well as 2 other warranty issues. They only managed to fix 1 of the 3 issues and the other 2 are still on going. However when they came back to me about my exhaust rattle, after sending them 3 different vid...
