    Cross climate + tyres

    Every single forum has this discussion and just about everyone gets it wrong. As above - “winter tyres” are specifically designed to work in colder temperatures than “summer” or even “all season”. The ratio of different rubbers, silica black and other compounds make them operate properly when the temps drop. Special sipe designs, dispersing grooves, etc mean they clear water better, brake better and much more. Obviously when temps rise they aren’t like a summer tyre but then when it does it isn’t winter.

    Other cars in your household

    R is for M’way miles and some fun but covers the winter/4wd aspect as it gets bloody snowy at one of the houses. M135i has been my toy for some time but is now for sale as it just doesn’t get the use for fun it did. So it’s advertised here and elsewhere and the money will go back into the bank! A number of bikes in the garage - the slowest of which will leave any of the cars wondering WTF they went whilst on the back wheel 😂 There will be something RWD and lightweight to replace the M135i at some point but till be a cheap toy.

    Apple IOS 12 update for carplay - winning!

    What they need to do is push the carplay to the dash when using nav.

    Apple IOS 12 update for carplay - winning!

    The whole point of Carplay is it mirrors your phone display. PITA I agree but unless someone comes up with a hack through OBDII or similar it will do it.

    Winter Wheel Recommendations

    Have those for mine. Brilliant but will overheat quite quickly when pressing on once the temps warm back up!

    Cadiz Alloys

    Personally I’m topped out at £400 for a set of alloys as the winters will be going on them so makes no odds if they’re Cadiz or ones from CMW. Difference with CMW is they go through the company as a purchase with an invoice with it being a lease. Paisley Freight are the best for shipping wheels/tyres.

    Cadiz Alloys

    OE’s are fetching £3-400 on eBay. Not much in it between then and something from CW except a receipt and guarantee

    Someone scrapped my car door.

    Better than having it deliberately keyed like mine has been in the last 7 days. Mind - they don’t realise I have CCTV on the property so happy to let that one tick away....
