    Just finishing my first tank of Tesco diesel in my 640d GC and wondered if it was worth the extra £4 a fill to use a premium performance diesel from a branded station rather than the supermarket. Thoughts please would be welcomed on the pros and cons

    Does anyone know when the next premium map update for CIC nav is (which as alluded in the title will be 2019-2)?
  3. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all! I recently bought BMW E61 2007, N53 engine with 272KM. I am having some misfire issues on 4th cylinder , so I started investigating from battery. What I found out is that there still sits original BMW 80Ah, which life span was calculated by BMW for 10 years. Previous owner replaced all...

    Interesting little statistic that might encourage you to ask us to quote for your car insurance when it comes up for renewal... Car club members and enthusiasts save 22.3%* on average by switching to Chris Knott compared to their existing renewal elsewhere. So there's the potential for very...

    Is it worth it? My new (to me) 325 is averaging 28 mpg on my hilly, stop-start commute. Is Premium unleaded economically sensible?

    Hi, I'm after a pair of subwoofer housings for F22 from the premium or HK range. The part numbers are 65139232125 / 65139232126 or 65139210149 / 65139210150. I know those only come with the speakers in but all I care about are the housings. So the speakers can be damaged as long as the...
  7. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi, I've recently bought a 320d 177bhp and am looking to get it remapped with DPF removal and EGR delete as well. Been quoted £450 for the lot, seems a good price. The question I have is do I need to use premium diesel once it's done? I've heard it a couple of times but never been told why...

  9. Car Insurance
    Good afternoon I have ordered a new BMW and I have requested this to be fitted with a tracker, in order to retrieve if stolen. Car is coming 1st of September ( so to have a 67 plate) I would expect a tracker to reduce my insurance premium, but I haven't been able to find an insurance company...

    Hello all, I am looking into a new car (E60 520d) and have obviously been looking around for insurance quotes. I was quoted £1200 from Bell through Confused, which seemed decent! However when I then went to retrieve the quote a week later and try again, I was offered £1600! Same car, same...

    Hi all, Not sure whether this is allowed, but the 'rules' I just agreed to didn't mention it wasn't! Have just updated my CIC in my E82 with the above and now have no use for the (home made) discs. After the hunt to try and find some DVD+R DL that worked it seems a shame just to bin them...
  12. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I just changed my 10 year old E46 for a new F30. The E46 was so perfect in every way that in year 10 I still felt exhilarated when I got into the car, as much as on the first day. I knew it was a hard act to follow, and was worried that the new car, being six inches longer and shod with run...

    I'm looking into upgrading my BMW 2010 premium sat nav software to the latest 2015-2 version. Can anyone suggest the safest and cheapest way to do this? Thanks Bwell
  14. Car Insurance
    I just yesterday purchased a "w reg" 318Ti Sport compact and swapped my insurance over from my "v reg" 318Ti Sport compact. Insurance (with tesco) has gone up from £37 per month to £67 per month, which i think is utterly ridiculous as they are IDENTICAL CARS!!!! Is there anything i can do...

    Hello guys. Whilst idly googling a couple of weeks ago I came across a site that would produce custom fascias for your BMW to match your stereo exactly. They were something like £40. I can't for the life of me find it again and I'm sure I wasn't dreaming. Does anyone know of this (or another)...

    Hi, I'm back again. I used to have a 328i AC Schnitzer a few years ago - Didnt really post much. I'm now looking for an E60 M5, so I thought I'd sign up again with a premium membership so that I can post a wanted/for sale advert :) I'll try and be a bit more active this time! Paul.
