Holiday book ideas

So I need something to read and I can’t decide after googling so looking for opinions

I’m really not a big book person anyway but last year I read Jenson Button and Mark Webber’s autobiographies while away and enjoyed both

Looking for some good ideas ideally car/motorsport related

Re: touch screen ?

if mine was touchscreen i’d never use it

fingerprints round drive me crazy and the idrive controller is perfectly adequate to do all the desired tasks

Re: Pre LCI M135i Gearbox Whine

Re: Keeping my car and upgrading it...

i was told it was a characteristic on my car, i argues the noise should be there from day 1 to be a characteristic not after 5000miles. i refused to collect the car and asked for another opinion. the next day the senior tech for the area ( could be just bs) heard the noise and ordered a new gearbox ...
