    Bye bye Audi :(

    Hiya chaps and chappesses!!

    Just managed to get around to posting on my recent purchase, im sorry to say it's come at a cost of giving up my beloved Audi's after over ten years - I thought I'd post in the 8L bit too seeing as i've spent most of my life here


    Finally done it...Audi to BMW!! yes, i s**t you not!!

    I'd like to thank everyone for their help and advice whilst being a member here, it's been emotional!

    Good luck with the Bimmer Tim and now you can actually say you own the road like all BMW drivers think

    Nice one Tim, proper family wagon time then. My mate has one (in black) and I had a ride for the first time in it the other day and it's a nice refined ride, feels a really well put together car - he's had problems with the tailgate keep popping open??

    Enjoy it!!

    then change the lock? it's remote activated so you aren't likely to need to worry about a different key

    must i continue to wipe your arse

    Cheers mate - his wiring loom will be shot most likely, where it threads through one of the four channels in the boot - get him to give me a bell if he's a bit handy and i'll talk him through the repair without having to drop the roof lining - quite a bit of soldering required
