  2. Introduce Yourself
    Hiya, I’m new here and I’m looking to buy a 1 series. Done a bit of research but getting put off by all the scary stories of faults with this and that.

  8. Coding & Software
    Hey all I've lost all sound from radio to seat belt bing bong. My dash unit restarts itself in constantly going back to the bmw intro screen or sometimes it holds itself on but zero sound. I also lose power to the usb in the arm rest during resets. I've been told the (ZGW) CENTRAL GATEWAY...
