  1. F30 issues

    I’m rattle free!! (So far) On the test drive to check the recall work, the rattle appeared. They stripped out the glove box and diagnosed it as a faulty damper used on the glove box lid. Replaced and rebuilt. Feels like a new car, I enjoyed the drive home
  2. F30 issues

    It was diagnosed a few months ago as the glovebox so a new one was fitted. 30 seconds after picking it up, the rattle was back. Now it’s back it to be sorted and they can’t locate it so after 3 days I’m getting it back along with the rattle
  3. F30 issues

    Must be my driving bmw rang me yesterday saying they need the car until Saturday to fit an an oxygen sensor that has failed, and they’ve done a software update as a recall. Thsts all well and good, but they can’t find the rattle it went in for that’s driven me insane for 11 months

    While it’s been in they’ve told me there’s a software update and potential egr issue to be resolved too
  5. F30 issues

    The alignment has never been done at the dealer as it’s £100+ there!! It’s always been done at an independent tyre place who have the same set up as BMW, I’ve used them for 25 years and have no worries about their honesty.
  6. F30 issues

    Since getting my 3 series in November, I’ve had issues with the wheel alignment. Im on my 4th set of front tyres as they’re being heavily scrubbed on the outer edge. They need changing with 4/5mm in the middle but the edges being totally bald. Im having 4 wheel tracking done with each tyre change but it’s making no difference. Most of my miles are A road and motorway, so speed bumps and pot holes aren’t any more of an issue than they would be to anyone else My car is in BMW at the minute for the second time for a rattle that’s been there since the day I collected it, but they can’t find. It’s already had a new glove box but the rattle returned within a mile . It’s a constant plastic on plastic noise Had anyone else with a 3 series had tracking problems?
  7. CHAVMOBILE Spotting...

    Yes. The whole rear end looks like it’s been covered in what’s left after you cut biscuit shapes out of a big piece of mixture.

    Not only have they put louvres on the rear window...it’s a sticker and in the wrong colour yellow.

    Mechanics on £50k and away 200 days a year! I thought they would have been on 3 or 4 times that much at least

    You could find similar clips for any make if car if you looked. Looks like lots of those clips involve alcohol, drugs, old age, distracted drivers which aren't exclusive to and make of car.
  13. 10 years ago we lost a legend

    I've always though it sad that McRae and Richard Burns put their lives on the line every time they drove a rally car, yet were taken from us by another means.

  15. Music streaming

    Radmac on 6 is the best radio show by far. Ive found Spotify in the car by downloading the BMW Connected app on my phone
