  1. The 4S is a great tyre but if you have good Pirellis, I’d wait until they’re worn out before replacing them. I have Pirellis on my BMW and they seem to cope okay with my car but I’ll switch to the 4S when the Pirellis are worn. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Banned in ‘96 for speeding in my Cavalier SRi - 107 mph on a dual carriageway.[emoji23] (Great car that Cav - it was an 8 valve so a cambelt change took about 45 minutes!) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. In the dry, my old Cupra 280 was much more nimble than my R was - less weight with no 4wd. Probably different in the wet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I’m tending to use the idrive controller more now as opposed to the touchscreen - much safer for a start plus less prone to make mistakes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Mine has a mix of touchscreen, buttons for all the vent/aircon controls, buttons for the radio presets plus a very easy to use rotating nob on the centre console. The new I drive 7 is very easy to use and so far, no glitches. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Crazy. What’s wrong with a sodding button?? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Can’t go wrong with buttons. Although my BM only came out last year, they’ve stuck with buttons for the heating/ventilation/aircon controls instead of going full touch screen. Plus - TP reports can be switched on and off with a button so even easier than my mk7’s infotainment system. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Knowing VW, they’ll void anything to do with the brakes because of non standard parts. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Three oil changes in seven months? [emoji15]Is it tuned? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Depends on the force - different forces have different tolerances for speeding. Ten percent plus 2 mph is the norm I think but I guess Mrs Slider will have to wait and see what happens. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Probably could tell the difference but it’s my first BMW and I’m not upto speed on their various models. There seems to be precious few 4 series cars about let alone 440s so difficult to actually see. That said, I’ve looked at pictures on line and there’s some differences between the front and rear bumpers plus the exhaust layout - definitely not a waste of money given the way it drives! But as you say, ETTO. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Yes - I remember you saying that you’re not a badge fan but there’s nothing to distinguish my car from a 420 or 430 otherwise. Interestingly, I went to Caffeine Machine today and was quite shocked at the attention my car got - I’ve never had a car that’s had so much attention. People were pointing at it, looking at THAT grille, looking through the windows then going around the back to see what model it was - I don’t know what they were saying but it certainly became a talking point - bizarre.

  13. Another few slight alterations. Removed the XDrive badge and replaced the M440i badge with a black one. Did the same with the ones on the wings too. Quite easy to do. Taped off the original badge to get the right position making sure I doubled one end of each piece of tape back on itself to make a removal tab. Heated the badge up then used dental floss in a sawing action to peel the badge off as dental floss won't damage the paint. Then used ValetPro citrus glue and tar remover to clean off the residue. I then heated up the area where the badge goes to make it adhere better and Robert's your m
  14. Yes but VW will try and wriggle out of it too! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
