  1. RS3 - Saloon!

    I think they are stopping production of the M3 fairly soon (as in a month or so). M4 continues a bit so I read. 8 series looks fabulous and the M8 will no doubt be quite special.
  2. RS3 - Saloon!

    Good effort Riz. BMW’s are the nuts. I’d ponder one for our family car if I was sure the missus would take care of it. Given the state of the Passat, I don’t think she would!
  3. BMW Finance Discounts

    I’ve used it from time to time! About 28k on the clock. Last 12 months were huge, clocking up 2000 miles. Better than the 300 the year previous!
  4. BMW Finance Discounts

    Time flies! My M3 is now 10 years old. I still think of it as a new car ... !!
  5. GLC 63S

    Love that Rachel, top skills!
  6. Insurance costs?

    I’ve added miles and business use to my M3 and my renewal is £289 for myself and the missus, a good 15% drop.
  7. What would you do.....?

    If it really is easy to buff you would hope the dealer could do that and relocate. But did you say it was matt paint? You can’t polish that I thought.
  8. Boxing thread

    Fury return. Thoughts? Talks a good game on Faceache.
  9. BMW M2 Competition

    The turbo or the V8?
  10. Hi

    Street racing what? Pony and trap on the A13?
  11. Hi

    Racing what?
  12. BMW M2 Competition

    RWD and all that power I’ve not found intimidating in any weather. Right foot wins. M2 Comp looks like a beast. Mind you, the M4 CS looks beautiful.
  13. RS3 - Saloon!

    People tell me my car must be going up in value given the few miles I put on it. I laugh. I’m not holding out any hope of that and in fact if it happened I’d have to consider selling it and I really don’t want to do that!
  14. WiFi extension

    Hello. Having just moved into a larger house, I think the need for extending the wifi is going to be required. The previous owners had to so what are my best options? I just want one network, I don't want the device to have to switch between different wifi network names. The powerline adapters look neat and the new BT whole home system looks interesting (it is expensive though). A new BT homehub is being delivered this week and if I believe the hype the signal is much improved from older models.
  15. WiFi extension

    I bought one of these: https://www.novatech.co.uk/products/asus-rt-ac87u-dual-band-wireless-ac2400-gigabit-router/90ig00w0-bu2g00.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInabaxeG22AIVSrftCh3NSwCcEAQYBSABEgImMPD_BwE Same as MrMe. Works well and have seen over 200mbps on wifi. I don’t bother with the Virgin router in modem mode as the service always seemed to go wrong when I did it.

    You can skip the first 90 mins is what I found out.

    The motorcycle chap being second ... that was a surprise!
  18. The £1k mobile phone

    So what happens when some chav smacks me over the head for the phone and uses by stricken face to open it and order a million nappies or lightbulbs from Amazon?
  19. The £1k mobile phone

    Doesn’t happen each time incidentally.
  20. The £1k mobile phone

    Not bothered with face ID. Don’t trust it! Odd perhaps, but there we go!
  21. The £1k mobile phone

    Right, so predictably I bought a 256gb X. Does anyone have the annoyance that when swiping up to enter the pin code you get the spinning wheel thing then it returns you to the lock screen?
  22. SPOTY 2017

    Joshua for my vote. Hope he gives Lewis a smack on the way to collect it.
  23. Boxing thread

    Yes, I keep watching his analysis of the fight over and over. Love it. The way he talks about it is fantastic. I hope he continues his great sucess. How will he fare against Wilder? I’m not generally a follower of boxing but I follow AJ avidly.
  24. Aren’t they based on another manufacturer’s chassis?
  25. 9 seconds quicker than the Bug! Love it. Prob couldn’t drive it!
