Those are some hard 700 dry miles! 😆
Jesus Christ. Rough b******s.
Christ, that's shocking.
Does not surprise me at all.
Yup. Its fairly poor isnt it, i mean the part wasnt exactly expensive (£35 posted from Germany), so they should have just replaced it really. I think the thing that really annoys me with the main dealer is that they just dont care, i mean, the saloon 335i has full BMW history as well and the first thing i had to do with that was fix the coolant leak from the poorly replaced (under warranty) water pump, then they buggered up the power cable recall so it cut out on the motorway!!It's cruel but I pissed myself when I saw the glue 😆 Good fix!
It needs an oil service.‘Buy my car, it has full bmw main dealer history’
‘nah I’m alright thanks mate’
Umm yes. That headlight "re-wire" was distinctly unimpressive.That's a bodge, but pales into insignificance compared the one on the m135 !
Take it to bmw and just ask to watch whilst it’s done, sighting your previous examples. Claim the previous owner was a neighbour so you know 100% it had never been anywhere elseYup.

Which leads me onto:

For resale/value retention, especially being that it only has 15k miles, i should really take it to BMW, but i genuinely dont want them going anywhere near it lol.

Yes it worked, but my god those pictures you sent me where pikey as f*ck
Its probably the best couple hundred quid you can spend on an e9* auto i reckon; that, plus the paddle rewire modernises the car instantlyJealous. I can’t justify the cost of it though. I find DS is decent enough but normal mode can be sloshy
Do it Mark.Hmmmm. That you have all that, and you're a BMW fwiend, makes MHD now that I'm out of warranty even harder to resist. FFS.
Haha, i've done it a few different ways, jump leads, trickle charger to name but a couple, but as this car is bit "nicer" than the others i thought i better do it properly 🤣Good work. I just used an old trickle charger so I know that feeling of flash anxiety!
The Americans on e90post are the proper nutters, backing up/modifying the ECU's and modifying the code themselvesOnly on CS would you find DIY remapping [emoji38]
Yeah, XHP do an ZF8 map now, although being honest, its pretty darn good fro the factory!Haven't they got something similar for the ZF8 now too?
Surely @Sir_Dave you'd want the M50D X5?
I renewed my insurance last month and I couldn't get it any lower than £400...
Thanks @gally ... Sarah's 40+3 weeks now, so due any day!! Unfortunately, Covid19 will stop me actually seeing the baby once its born for 48-36 hours (i get an hour after birth 🙁), but it is what it is, and naturally, its affecting some in far worse ways than that. Hopefully our minime will have excellent dress sense like your little one 😉😎Congrats on baby sir Dave mate! Hope Sarah is doing well!
Love you obsession with these cars. And not to detract but Chris' is a nicer colour. I can't quite put my finger on why. I'd probably have classy silver if you could find one in the right spec. I'm fussy with colours.
Epic wagon however! By the time the baby is 2 months you will realise how helpful the big car is!
Still loving the pan roof combo with the light leather. Such a bright place to be.
Yes, pan roof and light leather makes it sooo bright inside, especially compared to my old e91 with black leather/no sunroof, i've always been a fan of light leather if im honest, Sarah's TT is similar ...Good update. You are right about the trim the dark wood looks better against that leather.
Don't believe you will have much space. Whilst the e91 is a cracking looking car the narrow boot due to being rwd does not give great space once a pushchair is in there. Having the other back seat makes the difference. Although you may find your partner sits in that one to keep the new arrival company.
Hooooold the freaking phone.....I had coupes until Milly was 8! I only have a bigger car now because company car!
You really need to get the £400 worth of body work done to it. Thats in a proper s**t state for the mileage.If anyone is interested: https://cliosport.net/threads/58-e91-335i-lci-sport-touring-18k-miles-£13-495.834562/
Am strangely enjoying wafting about in the X5 😂

Mine works, its just X3 shaped at the moment....Perhaps. But at least my estate works 😘
