Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

Just bought an M140i and read the sticky about the design flaw. Raised it through BMW UK and they've approved my local dealer to retro fit the rock guards under a goodwill agreement with no cost to me. Please that I can get this sorted following all the bad news stories here and will give some peac...

Re: OBD port mapping question

So if I was to get the remap but put the car back to standard figures before a service do you think that would be fine? Depends on what your concern is. When it comes to servicing the manufacturer couldn't care less. If you make a warranty claim because the engine threw a piston through the block t...

Re: OBD port mapping question

Being undetectable by the finance company is one thing. After all, I don't think they're in the habit of turning up and checking the vehicle over.

Being undetectable by the manufacturer is another thing altogether. I think the tuner is being economical with the truth.

Re: Iron out

Safe to use all over providing you don't let it dry and you rinse thoroughly.

PS - It smells amazing so make sure you take a big sniff! :D

Re: Car Plan Number 1 Gloss

Good as a cheap drying aid. Wouldn't use it for much more than that.

Re: Loss of aircon/coolant leak, Both radiators damaged. Updated - BMW and Dealer paying in full.

Is it worth putting this to BBC Watchdog aswell? Its clearly a design fault so BMW have fixed it. Its not a LCI change or performance change. Its purely a change to protect the radiators becuase they have noticed that you end up damage to the radiators and possible leaks. I've put my complaint into...

Re: (House) Bees entering weep/ventilation holes in brickwork...

It's most likely a solitary bee. These likes holes in brickwork and/or mortar.

They don't form colonies, don't "build nests", don't produce honey or wax. They also have a really short life span.

Best just leaving then alone but if you want to fill the holes August onwards is generally best.

Re: another attempted theft

Sorry to hear that. I wonder if you were previously followed or if they simply pulled into the close and checked out each driveway.

Re: another attempted theft

You mention a garage. Just for clarity, and MPs stats, was the M135 in the garage at the time?

Worth an email to the Guardian.
Exactly. Doesn't cost anything apart from 10 minutes of your time.

I've emailed them already so the more of us that do it the more seriously they might look into the issue.
