Woo! Still a saloon.

So did the 330d get written off too? Or was it the box failing that made you scrap it?

Bad day today went to national tyres in high wycombe and sump bolt snapped off had to get AA to recover me :( and getting local garage to sort it on Monday.

This is the second time in 5 years they have snapped sump bolt off never going there again :angry: I will rather pay more for oil and filter and know it has done properly.

That's unlucky mate, I did this myself back in February. Had to extract the thread out and pop to the dealers for a new bolt. 

Is it sorted now?

The main thing letting my interior down was the gear-knob emblem where the backing was coming away I was going to swap it for my new leather BMW knob but it has a clubsport gear knob fitted so I bought a new genuine BMW emblem.

New alternator? Didn't know it needed one?

Did it result in another recovery? You must be on first name terms with the AA staff around Wycombe!

(I called the breakdown people out of Saturday - they were with me in about 10 minutes. Very impressed.)

Firstly I have finally received and fitted my new aux input so was able to fit my new brushed aluminium trim soooo much better :wub: than the carbon cube it lifts the interior and doesn't make it look cheap. Just need to respray my aux/usb holder as got scratched while in storage but for now happy I have aux just need to wire up my usb ports next.^_^
