Re: 2011 E93 B3 S Biturbo #234

The whole of the centre section is the airbag, whereas before the airbag was separate to the 3 spoke plastic trim.

Re: Leather

Interesting to see others using various soaps for cleaning leather. Personally I've only used Gliptone leather cleaner and found it is excellent. On that drivers bolster you might find those creases will improve but not go away after cleaning. If that bothers you then you can either: * Have the bol...

Re: Castrol Edge 5w30 4L - £16!

That's cheaper than bottled water! Indeed! :lol: Nice find Asim but I can only see 4 x 4l @ £74.59 (which is still pretty good)! Hi Barry. Believe it or not Costco online and the stores operate as separate companies and prices differ. What you've found is the online price, whereas I've quoted the s...

Castrol Edge 5w30 4L - £16!

Just noticed Costco have an offer on Castrol Edge 5w30 longlife oil, 4 L - for just £16 inc VAT!!

This is the lowest price I've ever seen Costco sell this oil at - unbelievable price and value!

Offer ends tomorrow (Sunday)

Re: B10 4.8 S Brake Judder

Good to hear John and useful to know what cured it. I thought all V8S had M5 front wheel bearings?

Selling is very much luck of the draw with buyers and of course the car being a good example - good luck with what you choose.

Re: F10 B5 BiTurbo #048 (in Northern Ireland)

Yes good point. Think it may have something to do with the later configuration of the "sport auto" transmission. If you look at these early B5 they have the standard gearshift that's angled towards the driver. When the F10 was ordered with the optional sport auto the wheel came with paddles, a thick...

Re: F10 D5 BiTurbo #075 (Lavalina)

Wow, never realised that the dash top was still extra with L2, not so surprised about the piping (though not sure why). Don’t you get the boot mat and leather piped floor mats With L2? No piped mats £200, and same additional cost for boot mat. It’s funny you say about the difference between 1&2 in ...

Re: F10 D5 BiTurbo #075 (Lavalina)

Question for Asim: does this look like Lavalina 1? Looks to have leather dash top and all over the seats and door cards, but the lower dash and centre console don't. Good question Bob, and honestly I don't know. I suspect it's L1, as you've noted the lower dash and centre is not leather. Looks like...

Re: G31 B5 LCI #701

Yes I've also noted this change in steering wheel stitch - very odd, as the smooth straight stitch has been an Alpina hallmark (for feel as well as look)
