  1. You wanna try wearing them all your life, mine are +4! They are something you get used to, the only thing I don't like it not being able to wear proper headphones. If I need to do something where they get in the way,I just stick some contact lenses in. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  2. I have driven it some more and I'm not convinced it's the clutch, I'm sure it's the idle. If it's not in gear and I very slowly depress the gas pedal, it feels like there is a few millisecond of play before I see the revs go up at all, combine that with 600rpm at idle and I am sure that is the cause. Every other car I have owned has been very responsive when pressing the throttle but this feels like there is a delay or a lag before the revs start increasing. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  3. Get a job working for a finance firm, they hate the cloud so OT galore. I do like 25 hours a month, mostly from home as well. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk

  5. Hey So I picked up a 325ci 2002 with 89k on the clock recently. I have not owned one before so it could be in my head. It just doesn't feel right for some reason but I have been putting it down to the cold weather. I keep stalling it, I have to put on more power than I was expecting to pull away and it sounds like I am revving it. When driving, it doesn't feel like it pulls as much as it should, I realise the car is heavy but I was expecting more power. It also seems to hesitate sometimes, especially in higher gears, more so at lower RPM's. Its not a massive issue but it doesn't feel 'right' Its still has a 'warranty' so any issues have to be fixed within the first three months. Cheers
  6. 9% have Orient Blue, the same as me. Surprised at that!
  7. How do you define 'sports'? Your definition likely differs from mine and 10 other people on here. I had an S2000 which I think is definitely sports car but other disagreed.
  8. People making calls on the train. I have no interest in your conversation so STFU and wait until you get home.
  9. Haha it was there! Glad I didn't buy one. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  10. Cheers The car was from a Garage so had a three month 'warranty' with Autoprotect. Will give them a call and try and get them to foot the bill. I don't think either issue is ear and tear surely? Worth a try at least. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
  11. I did lift up the boot liner thing and saw an empty space where I figured the space saver would go so I don't think its there, will double check tonight! My concern is whether its ok to run 3x 18" wheels and a 16" space saver if I ever get a puncture, would the car drive ok on that? Cheers
  12. Hi My E46 has mv1 alloys, 18 inch but I have no space saver! I am guessing a 16 inch one would not work well and I need a 17 inch one? I have a 325ci They are going for £75+ on ebay which seems steep. It's a shame I couldn't just buy an mv1 wheel and have a full size spare as it won't fit where the space saver goes.

  13. Thanks, I was looking for a 330 but this came up near me and the paintwork was immaculate, low miles for age, full history etc and a reasonable price. I will have once I give her a clean this weekend
  14. Hi Guys Thanks for all the replies, I did a bit of googling and Thermostat seems to be the consensus for issue #1. It looks easy enough to change, do I need to drain the coolant or is that not required? I will check the oil tonight on the drive but it came on during the test drive and it has had an oil change since then so I am definitely thinking faulty sensor, again does the oil need draining as its literally just been done? Cheers
  15. Hi I recently picked up a 2002 325ci and am loving it so far! MPG is not great as I do maybe 3 miles to the train station and back each day. 22Mpg but it doesn't even warm up properly due to the short journey. Cheers
