Re: Turn off auto lights...?

Wrong in what sense? I was referring to pje16's post where he was confusing getting rid of DRLs via coding/BC vs auto lights. I never debated what BMW has fitted since 2018, just that what pje was referring to personally was the DRLs that you can turn off in the BC/via coding and not the auto light...

Auto lights CAN be turned off

Re: Turn off auto lights...?

That’s the DRLs which are a legal requirement in some countries so be careful if you go to Europe ever! Auto lights are a different thing and only work when dark, no idea why you’d want them off or even be bothered by them. :shock: :? Wrong. Since 2018, BMW have made auto lights standard figment on...

Do you also turn off the auto wipers
I do. They’re either too fast or too slow.

Re: Car collected today and BANG!!! Gutted

Get it replaced at a BMW garage. Most insurers will allow you to take it to a main dealer.

Not a single issue with mine, and it was one of the first.

Re: Tyre bulge after 3300 miles

You’ve hit a pothole. Hence the rubber transfer. ;)

Re: DVLA delay.

As someone else said, a 140i isn’t exactly rare, so tell them you want your deposit back, and go somewhere else. It’s their error, let them learn from it.

Re: I've just filled up with V Power...

I never bother with VPower in the car, but on the bikes I always use it, as it does seem to perform better with it in. Could be placebo, but for only a couple of quid more per tank, I’m not worried.

I went with easygap, about £10k cover IIRC. Much cheaper than BMW.

Re: The new 4 Series is....

Nope, I still don’t get all the hate. Embrace the change folks, it’s here to stay. Once these are on the road and people get used to the new style which will be rolled out across all models, you’ll all have one. There’ll be comments of “it actually looks ok in the flesh” blah blah blah. I always wai...

Re: The new 4 Series is....

I like it. In black it would look even better. I’m quite surprised at all the hate on BMW, when you consider that Lexus and Audi have been getting away with producing this sort of sh*t for a while now....
