    Hi, I’ve started to get quotes for repairs/resprays to my 330i Touring. It’s just flown through another MOT but the paintwork needs a refresh. For context, it’s on 230,000 miles...so I only want to invest so much. The interior is v smart. The bonnet and one wing have lots of stone chips...

    The poxy-bleeding council have not only done a naff job at resurfacing the road into my village but they re-opened the road before the new tarmac had cooled and set properly.

    OK. I have just picked up a black E92 and the paintwork has a few stone chips in it. When I looked at it, it was utterly filthy as the dealer had only had it a few days and it had been in storage those days with no prep work. When I went to pick it up, they had cleaned it and done a reasonable...
