Investigating a leak from the diff, something they picked up in a recent check.

It's under warranty.

Good, that's got me seriously considering for next year.

At least I won't need the CIC facia (and technically the screen, but there's a mark on my one and I'd want to replace it).

What's the DAB reception like and what aerial are you using? Mine takes it from the rear screen ......meh ..... so so.

It absolutely owns the CCC system in so many ways… Internal hard drive for music, wireless audio streaming from my iPhone, better maps, handwriting input, split screen and more :) looks more modern too… NBT and emulator were sourced from Wibbles :)

Thanks Ian :)

Haven't tested the DAB properly yet. Using an aftermarket areal which will be stuck to the rear window

NBT came coded from Wibbles. The ENBT emulator came from wibbles too. It's a fair price for something that in reality is easy to fit yourself once the coding is tackled
Now: 2006 130i with even more goodies ;)
Gone: 2008 116i with goodies :)

As Dan says, i can supply and fit NBT retrofit kits like this. Price wise I managed to source one at very special price for Dan. DAB units are particularly hard to come by. I can also supply NBT EVO systems with iDrive 5 firmware but there is currently a waiting list of 3 months.

Pm me for prices.

Not been on this for a while, and not posted any pics of my latest 1 series but today I had new front tyres fitted @ KwikSh!t and an exterior valet after hitting a pothole in thePeak District on Saturday - what a nightmare that was! Got both front replaced as I like matching tyres on each axle also they were doing a deal on Goodyears, they're a little bit cheaper and seem to be much grippier and not as solid as the Dunlop Sport Maxx RTs that I had on.

Installed 135I brakes on the front and 328I brakes on the rear (non official Performance brakes upgrade) :mrgreen:
I do have problems with ISTA-P though. It says that I must replace to control modules and disconnect a Most-? line before it will allow programing.. I think it may have to do with the recent brake recall...
2009 E87 118i, Bilsetin B8 with BMW Performance Springs filled with audio gear. <-mine
2011 E90 328i M Sport, 335I brake upgrade. <- wifes
