Re: RDS Text and AutoDAB - 2011 Convertible

OK, shame. Thanks Speedychuck. Guess I'll have to wait until we get a 2 series :-)

Re: RDS Text and AutoDAB - 2011 Convertible

Can anyone post a photo of their display?
Should I be able to view RDS Text on the stereo? I have the Professional Navigation system without the DAB. When selecting an FM station all it does it sit on the screen showing the available FM stations, which change as you drive round.

You couldn't go through the rooflining on the E88, and this looks like it's an option on all models.

I was after a local decent detailer but their website is no longer active, suspect he may have closed down or moved on... :?:

Re: BMW insured warranty

Worth checking whether you need "Emergency Service" and the excess you've selected too - On the Comprehensive scheme mine dropped from £593 to £376 by removing the emergency service and increasing the excess to £250 (E88 123d M Sport)

RDS Text and AutoDAB - 2011 Convertible

Haven't been able to find an answer through searching as "RDS" is not a valid search term and the word "text" appears far too often in the wrong context :( Should I be able to view RDS Text on the stereo? I have the Professional Navigation system without the DAB. When selecting an FM station all it ...

Re: Style 243 on a 123d Msport E88 for winter?

Bit the bullet and plumped for slightly scuffed 256's off ebay - gonna fit Nokian WRD4's.

Hopefully these (now spare) 243's will cover the cost of the 256's once I clean them up. :)
Oh, and thanks for the tip about Paisley Freight - £33 to pickup and deliver 4 alloys/tyres is a great price!

Re: Style 243 on a 123d Msport E88 for winter?

Back on fleaBay they go, sorry. Have a look at these gorgeous wheels: http://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=85359 Nice wheels but £400 is a bit rich for me, sorry - I only paid £120 for these 243's and they look almost new (yeah, I know, "but they don't fit".) Also Essex is a bit of a t...

Style 243 on a 123d Msport E88 for winter?

Ok, so my second question (hopefully not quite a stupid as my first)... We have just bought a convertible 123d M Sport (2011) and it has the 261 style wheels (I believe from checking BMWStyleWheels.com) I have also picked up a full set of 17" style 243 off Ebay in fantastic unmarked condition which ...

Re: Symbols on Door Label - circle and triangle?

Sorry for the stupid question. I wondered if it was something to do with front/rear combinations but I never even noticed the symbols under the wheels on the image at the top - thanks for pointing them out!

Symbols on Door Label - circle and triangle?

I have searched but can't find an answer here or Google - what do the circle and triangle symbols mean next to these sizes?
(2011 E88 in case it makes a difference.)

TIA

E88 123d Le Mans Blue, new pride and joy

Hi all, new member here, just bought this beautiful motor, replaced a Mk3 MR2 (old joints, don't bend as well as they used to.)
Alloys need a little attention and there are a couple of light scratches, but she drives great.
