Re: Extended storage pack

That’s pretty crap. The price you pay for the car and you don’t even get cup holder inserts. I love the boot socket as I use it for my car fridge. Always got bottles of cold water readily available in the boot.

Re: New car, what’s the infotainment spec??

Car finally came. Infotainment spec is average. I added the remote service and concierge service to it. There is a code HAPPY2018 which gave me 20% off connected drive services.

Re: Extended storage pack

Car arrived on Thursday. It did come with the extended storage pack (12v socket under glovebox, 12v socket next to transmition tunnel, 12v in boot and luggage storage net in boot). No cup holders came though. I put it on the delivery sheet but my guess is they don’t come with the new vehicles. Overa...

Re: Detailing/ waxing

[/quote] This is one of those 'rumours' that gets out of hands!! Washing Up Liquid doesn't strip wax, all it does is cover the car in surfectants (enzyms in the solution) that sit ontop of the wax making it look like its gone.

Re: Detailing/ waxing

When it comes to my major detail I use a bit of washing up liquid to strip everything off my car. I want all wax, polish and protection removed as my intention is to completely redo the car. You should never ever use washing up liquid if your just doing a regular wash! I feel polish and wax can go d...

I placed my order on the 25th Oct 17 and it gets delivered this Friday 12th January. Just over 11 weeks. I was quoted over 12 but it’s coming a week early.

Re: 12v Accessory socket e81

I could be wrong but from my understanding on the new 2017 1 series f20 model, if you purchase the extended storage pack you get a 12v socket under the glove box and one in the boot along with the one in the centre console and rear transmition tunnel. 4 in total. Not too sure on the E81 though

Automatic boot opening

Ive seen many posts online about the automatic boot opening for the bmw 1 series f20. Mines gets delivered on Friday. I was hoping to order the necessary items to complete the mod but nobody seems to really know what parts are needed. Ive came across this website: https://www.bearingboys.co.uk/Die-S...

Re: open trunk automatically :)

Has anyone got a step by step guide to do this on a bmw 1 series 2017 model. Most of the links on the posts are all defunct now. Quite fancy doing this.

Re: Detailing/ waxing

I would wash the car and put a bit or washing up liquid in to strip any wax / polish off. De-tar using autoglym tar and adhesive remover. Clay bar the car. I use autoglym high def cleanser. Then if the car needs it I give it a polish using super resin polish, I then use autoglym high def wax, then I...

Re: New car, what’s the infotainment spec??

Thanks for all your responses. Someone sent me a link to the brochure. It says in it that is comes with bmw concierge. The brochure has numbers beside the items which corresponds to the information at the bottom of the page. Concierge has 1,5 next to it which says: 1: requires a free bmw connected a...
