    Does anyone know a good cloth machine car wash in London? I don't trust many of these hand car wash places as they generally don't do a great job and the pressure washers they use are often too powerful for the paintwork. I have no interest in standing outside with a bucket and sponge to wash...

From past experience of taking my car to a BMW service centre, it has absolutely zero benefit...

    The sat nav in my 17-plate 430i is fantastic and accurate when wholly outside London, but when travelling within or to/from the capital the arrival times are hopeless.
