  1. I was so tempted to do something similar Jason, the bhp from these big engine1 series' looks amazing, I'll have to get a test drive at some point! In a completely impromptu move, I've bought a Merc, it's a low mileage W204 - aka C280, 3.0 litre. Drives well, 234hp, but the upgrade mod scene is not as fun - I thought I could install a retrofit android unit. Turns out I either splash out a lot of money for a big 11" android - so I'm not going to bother.
  2. Yeah, it was tough, but it's now gone, it got picked up earlier for next to no money! What disappoints me is when I search for a new car with the same or equiv bhp, you end up having to spend decent money or accept another 'elderly' car. I'm looking for low maintenance car, looks good, but can match on power. I'm in no rush to get a new car, but if I do it will be petrol. If I try to keep spend reasonable I may get a 135 (or higher), otherwise if I take a big loan then maybe an X1 as apparently they are just E90's behind the scenes right? They're only 4 cylinder 2.0 litre engines (so tax seems low) but the super charger gives enough oomph in hp. The idea though of spending all that money .......
  3. Anyone still on this forum?? So, I've decided to sell my car Still drives really well, phenomenal in fact. However I just can't bear to fix even minor things anymore, don't have the time or inclination. Watch this space on ebay for more details ...!
  4. Not updated this for sometime! Been settling into new job and had some construction work at home, got screwed over by a builder, including him possibly reversing into my car door (no proof though). I then also damaged the lower trim because I drove into a friends hidden low wall in his driveway on a dark rainy day. Can't be bothered really fixing either, may try and repair myself one day. Car is still chugging along though ...
  5. When you say connect the aerial to plain bodywork for earth, presumably the painted bodywork behind the pillar next to windshield aint enough? My reception has been pretty bad to my xtrons unit, but i also have my gps unit and cigarette lighter to dashcam running through the glovebox too
  6. Mine didn't throw up codes, turned out to be the sensor
  7. Wow, you don't do things by half! I bet you feel mega satisfied having competed the jobs Good star to that man!
  8. I don't need these anymore, available on ebay currently: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263470267721?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  9. I don't need these anymore, they are available on ebay (note one wheel needs repairs): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263471333761?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

  11. So, non starting issue is still there .... :( Quite intermittent, was an issue first thing in the morning, then fine for next few starts, then I almso got stuck at the local dump, then it was fine for the next few, then I almost got stuck at my brothers ... It''s sending me a message .....!
  12. So I've been trying to get to bottom of the non-starting issues ... after youtubing and googling it came down to possibly glow plugs & relay (these have been sh*t) since I've owned the car so I dismissed this, fuel pump failure (I was hoping it wasn't this), fuel filter (mine was really rusty and it turned out I hadn't replaced it since May 2014 - 30,000 miles ago), or the fuel filter fuse. After watching the youtube vidoes for the wrong type of 330d (later model I assume) I removed these fuses in the engine bay: and found they were all working. I then tested the real fuse in the glove compartment and that was fine. So I then tackled the fuel filter: I'm not sure if it has fixed the non-starting issue (it was intermittent) BUT the car is awesome(r) to drive again I got a little carried away un my tests:
