I had been looking for 6 months, dither, dither , and then had a very unexpected life-saving operation, and during recovery thought "let's get on with it" and bought one within 2 weeks of getting out of hospital!
Nice one :D We should all pay attention to this.

Re: Hive Heating Control.

I've had one for years. Works great with Alexa and smart bulbs and plugs. Can boost heating or turn kettle on from armchair. Lol

Re: Changing runflats for a softer ride

Don't forget to inform/check with your insurer as some consider it a modification from OEM.

Re: 1 Series Lumbar Support Retro Fit

Yep - I put a big piece of foam between the inflatable pad and the metal. Just for protection really. See my photo on page 1.

Every brand is an aspirational one - it just depends on your finances.

Re: For those with Dashcams (Joe Achilles story)

Nothing righteous about saying well done to the Police. They've done a good job there. Hopefully saved a life or two down the line. Funny how you tell people to get off their high horse by getting on yours. Lol Whilst they were doing their "good job" 4 yobs were ruthlessly attacking 2 individuals i...

Re: Driving the new BMW M135i xDrive Joe Achilles

Well presented video - but at times felt to me like a paid presentation from a fanboy. I understand it was just first impressions but seemed very one sided. Good to see he wasn't driving unsafely on public roads - I've seen a few of his videos where he has gone a bit too far imo.

Change of brake fluid or at the very least a brake bleed and top up.

Re: NEW! "Top-Up" GAP insurance

Our Gap insurance expires in 6 months so I might look into this, as we plan to keep the car. As long as we get the usual forum discount :D

Re: New 3 series.

Sat in one in my dealers this week. Didn't't like it. Don't get me wrong - quality and tech are great but I felt really cramped. I know everything has to be near the driver cockpit style but that centre console is far too wide and door inserts stick out too much. Got back in my tech free E81 and it ...

Re: Availability? E81 sunblinds

I use these. Ignore pics they are generic. Rear sides are great. Rear screen is 2 piece which is a bit annoying because of line down middle. Overall I like mine. :)

Also ignore word SPAM in link - still works.
