Re: I need a new windscreen :(

If you use our approved repairers, AutoGlass, there is no limit on the amount we will pay for Windscreen damage under section 4 of the document. If you use any other supplier the most we will pay is £100 That's what it says on my certificate. Maybe I should have been clearer in my opening post. Whe...

I need a new windscreen :(

Unfortunately I need a new windscreen. My insurers will only cover it if I go via AutoGlass but I've spoken to them and stated I want an OEM replacement and I'd rather wait for it than take a "manufactured to specification" screen instead. Anything I need to be aware of? Does anything need to be 'ca...

Why did you go for a M140i rather than the 2 out of interest? Because you had already done the n55 coupe experience haha?

Re: 135i Coupe vs M135i

Be prepared to fork out for N54 issues with the coupe. A friend of mine has just had to get new turbos and injectors recently and cost him 1000s. He clearly said he'd go for an N55 either way. OP - I had an N55 E82 coupe and loved it. I went for it at the time as I preferred the coupe to the hatchb...

Re: M140 registration plates

It's personal preference but seeing as you asked I think messing with the registration spacing is, how can I put it, cheap and tacky.

Re: Battery swap doesn't sound simple...

You're very kind, but I'm in Birmingham, it's a bit of a drive just to get some help with a battery! Not the sort of thing I can just bung Halfords the extra 20 quid to install then? It's gonna have to go to a dealer? Halfords, Kwik Fit et al will happily install a battery for you, albeit they won'...

Re: Battery swap doesn't sound simple...

If you don't have Carly then usually there'll be someone on here that's willing to help you out. If you're near Plymouth I'll happily do it for you.

Re: Deezer quality/bitrate

My 12-month subscription has just come to an end. Due to an issue quite a few of us faced last October, I had to choose Napster over Deezer. While it was handy to have the sound quality wasn't great. I can only assume that as it's in BMW's interest to limit bandwidth as much as possible we're restri...

Re: Sand Ingress

Does anyone know what date this actually happened? I know it wasn’t reported in press properly till July but curious when the incident was. It was reported in the press the same week. The storm occurred the weekend of 17/18 March. https://i.imgur.com/1l3wlUU.jpg https://i.imgur.com/0YcVHTj.jpg

Re: Shadow edition, is it worth it?

You haven't told us what the "extra" equates to.

What's the price difference?

Re: iPhone for CarPlay , Samsung for calls - can it be done ?

I don't have enhanced BT (that I know of) but I have my P20 Pro setup for music and my work iPhone for calls.

Easy to do actually. Add both to iDrive and then select which element (Phone call, Music etc) you wish to assign to which phone.
