    Due to the "lovely" :mad road surfaces I have a buckled wheel on my E46 330i Sport and need a replacement 18" wheel. I have searched widely on the internet and cannot find a supplier of new european made replica wheels. I do not want to spend £400+ for a new wheel from BMW and don't want to...

    Hello all, I am going to purchase a BMW E90 estate and it has Australia map on the SATNAV because it is imported from Australia. How do I install the European map on it? How much would it cost? In terms of parts and services, is there any difference between an Australia model and UK model?

    Good Morning, Thinking of making my next Summer Holiday to SW France by car after a break of 4 years. My old school tank of a 2001 Saab 93 TiD (Vectra in drag) only ever needed a new tyre and a starter motor + battery (not cheap in Euros) in 5 years of making the same trip, but I worry about...
