    Hi, I've seen a car I like with a dealer, however the MOT expired earlier this month. I've raised this with the dealer who has said they will put a year's MOT on it once it has sold, but that I can test drive it anyway without an MOT, as he has trade plates that will cover me for this. Of...

    Hi all, I have read the rules and understand that there is a 3 series and 5 series section, but because this applies to both I thought it best to drop it in here. I currently own a 2013 F30 330D M Sport with pretty much all of the extras (with the odd exception such as adjustable suspension...

    Owning an old-ish car (mine's a '98 535i Sport), I'm getting to a common stage - it needs a bit of work doing, but the cost is heading towards the value of the car... nearly £2000 to get it back to mint! If I spend that much, I'll never get any of it back when it sells. If I don't, the car...

    In my last few MOT's i have had brake caliper sticking issues. I asked my local mechanic about this. His reply. "Every now and then, find a bit of quiet road, speed up to 60 mph (ish) and slam the brakes on. Do this a few times" He reckons that people using their gears to slow down, and a...

    Hi there, As mentioned in my introduction post here, I have put down a deposit on a cheap 330ci, which is just £3k as the body work needs a few quid throwing at. Otherwise it is a beatutiful car, which I have fell in love with. However when test driving 1 thing I did notice was that when...
