Re: M140i Stolen in Bolton - UPDATED - Car Found

Good news? Maybe not....

I would assume the car would have to be properly assessed (up on the ramps etc) to make sure everything is ok underneath, transmission, engine, suspension components etc arent damaged in any way?

Re: M3 F80 vs M135i

I love my M135i but have hankered off and on after an M3 and since the local dealer has one I decided today to take it out for a test drive. Same route I am familiar with in my MLite. I half expected to find the M3 too "hard core". I am not a fast driver I just like quick cars and how they feel to ...

Comfort access. I bought second hand so didnt spec it myself. I find it pointless.
You might want to consider protecting against relay theft if you aren’t doing so already.

Re: Deezer / Napster

Has the length of subscription changed as my M2 bought in April only gets 12 months Deezer sub IIRC?

Re: Thief detection

It’s not a bad idea, I have Netgear Arlo cameras and they have detected unwanteds up to no good on 3 occasions in just over 2 years.....alert via the phone on motion detection (passive IR).

Re: M140 almost stolen

CCTV doesn't seem to deter them at all sadly, they'll be in masks/hats/gloves anyway. Home security is the way to go, sash jammers, anti-smash security film on the windows, driveway post, that sort of thing. It did on one instance of them visiting me last month, previous year it didn’t but they ran...

Re: Pre-LCI m2 spec help?

You can change the ppf for something better (or larger I think), also you can get little mud guards at the front if you so desire. Sport wouldn’t be the best setting, Sport+ or Traction (one press of the DSC button) would get you a lot more exhaust noise, comfort and Sport its pretty quiet. Also use...

M135i stolen a couple of miles away from me last night, smashed a window and grabbed the keys apparently.

Re: Theft via break in reminder

It depends how you have them set up and the amount of activations you see. I have them on 15 second recordings and I’m using a Nitecore charger and Olight rechargeable batteries, get at least 2 months before they need charging, usually more like 3-4 months on the lesser triggered cameras. Note this ...

Re: Theft via break in reminder

Speaking as someone with a fair bit of experience, don’t waste your money on CCTV. It is good to see the hooded gentleman stealing your pride and joy, but it doesn’t deter them. These aren’t chancers, you are being targeted for your vehicle. Make it harder for them to get into your home. Anti snap/...

Re: Theft via break in reminder

The Netgear have served me well, already alerted me to 4 guys at the front/side of the house one night which allowed me to shine my LED torch on them and they ran off, this was 2 years ago. Just heard via my Facebook post that someone a few hundred yards down the road had their rear house door lock ...
