    How low do you go?

    thanks, I’d never really given it that much thought but that seemed to make sense. Just flipped my wife’s tyres back to front, she had 6 on the backs and 3 on the fronts after 3 years of driving. I would have just got new fronts but she’s not going to be driving too much in the upcoming year so...

    How low do you go?

    Problem surely with letting them get to the marker is that then how do you know exactly what you have without measuring it manually. If your tyres are level with the marker that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re at 2mm. Once at the marker the marker will wear with the rest of the tyre, so you...

    Another new BMW...grab a coffee!

    V V nice. They have really nailed the centre console - integration of the MMI screen is bang on, great lines. In the right spec this could be a car for me (never thought I’d say that about a bmw)

    The same evidence that tells us every single food type gives us cancer then gets overruled about a year later with a new study saying actually these foods are all really good for us? It all comes from the same school of ‘I don’t have an f’ing clue’

    What’s that Dulux colour, TIMELESS I think it’s called, the right word for the right interior. Not dated at all, no accounting for taste :)

    lol I did I just found the poor spec more offensive than the dodgy number plate :tearsofjoy:

    Facelift Don’t trust dealers

    Chrome trim and those wheels are very underwhelming, don’t do that car or colour justice.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Thanks for the advice mate. My wife’s car is getting a refurb in a weeks time after kerbing it so might have a little practice on that.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Thanks! Does it need blended at all or is it a case of just masking up all the bits I don’t want and going for it with it being clear? I don’t want an obvious line where I’ve masked up.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Looking on amazon E-Tech alloy wheel lacquer gets good reviews, anyone had any experience? It’s such a small area I need to cover.

    Does he mean for me applying the lacquer?

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    One pic before, one after in a good light from a ‘normal’ viewing position (looks really decent from that angle), and another a bit closer where if you zoom it’s not quite as good and you can see where it’s bare metal. Summary - if I’d had a practice wheel this attempt would have been far...

    S3 and golf r exhaust

    My A3 diesel tips cleaned up easy regardless of how long I went without cleaning them. My S3 tips need wiped down weekly at least to keep ontop of them otherwise they’re a b*tch to clean. Dunno if it’s diesel vs petrol fuel or what, but something coming out the exhaust that is different.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Cool thanks for that. Can’t see me getting that adventurous haha. Guess the problem I have is most of the damage being under the lip edge I won’t get a machine device onto the surface.

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Y yea I got away with it slightly, most of the damage is actually on the underside lip not the face. If anyone has any advice on making it slightly better be much appreciated . I won’t be getting it refurbed for that, the wheel never quite looks the same and it really is only a small graze

    What have you done to your 8V today?

    Did that didn’t I, what a b**lend. First damage to a wheel ever, gutted. Got distracted in a storm coming out of McDonald’s and boosh, mounted the outside kerb, lucky it wasn’t worse really, tyre protection really tried its best. Ah well, sh*t happens.

    Facelift iOS 13 public beta bluetooth password??

    Ah thanks for that, nevermind, maybe on the all new A3/S3. I like CarPlay kind of but I can’t be doing with plugging it in every ride so I don’t use it, shame really. Gues it may be a reason to get the next car :tearsofjoy:

    Facelift iOS 13 public beta bluetooth password??

    Is ios13 going to enable CarPlay wirelessly over BT, or is this a car software restriction? Thanks
