Um..think so.

PMSL . You got me here and I must admit I got the 'terminology' completely wrong here as well. I meant the low key lightning dials rather than bright ones for example the ones that I have on the S4 and A3

Too hot for that @X3man I salute you! BBQ and beer weather is what it is! :)

So how is your detailing coming along? Or taking it easy today?

Any excuse to not wash the car(s) these days will do. Like just as I was planning on taking the stuff ready to coat the alloys a friend called and said they will be with us in the evening and I was like a kid excited to see their new toy . Maybe tomorrow ...

Some serious JCW loving gone on today, about 5 hours worth, and no DA action.

Valet Pro Concentrated wash is some good stuff, and smells nice too.

Loving the gloss levels I get with the Q2 Pure Coating. Have had very positive comments from pro’s when they see it is person

Haha, thanks mate Any change with you in the pipeline?
No mate, still undecided what to do...I should downsize for how much I use the car, but when I look at what I'd downsize to it's not a million miles away each month on what I'm paying now!!! A new Fiesta ST3 is about -£100, JCW about -£70, Polo GTi -£60 less than if I went for another A5 coupe with the same engine spec that I have now....so £25pw from a Fiesta to a nice Audi and man maths kicks in and it's the Audi on the cards again :p I do enjoy driving the A5, it just feels nice/special...I love the s-tronic and I don't want to go back to a manual tbh! It's finding the balance, I could do with a basic Fiesta/Corsa and save over £200 per month...but I don't think I could live with a basic anything lol.

I had my head turned by one of these the other day, seen them for £32k

Was at Dashcam installer yesterday and spotted this terrible set of scratches on my bonnet. Looks like some DA action and re-Coat required along this panel this weekend.

No idea where that came from, was not there when I washed last weekend

That looks rather suspect Nev, Dashcam would have spotted the culprit . Busy weekend for you then .....

Yep, does look somewhat deliberate to me, such is life eh!

Will give it a go with the DA, and will show results here. Could be tricky this weekend as weather currently awful

The mentality of some people! They see a nice car and the first thing they think is "I'm going to damage that" :wtf:

We get the odd cat claw scratch from them jumping on the roof which is annoying. Would love to see them do it as must be slippy as hell. Thankfully they go for the wife's Golf which is the family car hence a mess most of the time anyway. :) We don't even have cats. It's the neighbourhood ones!

When I had the black S3 I had a random cat jump and slip all over my bonnet...I wasn't happy at the result!

That looks like something has fallen off a tree or similar and caught the paint on passing

Does look a pretty good deal, very very similar to what I got spec-wise, I have pano and folding mirrors.
@Bristle Hound I doubt very much these can still be MY19, and looking at the TRL thread, some seem to be new order cars (MY20 built from Sept)

https://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=80&t=123583&sid=d021e26c5f4ad175329faa8d41c4d37d

Note that the offer below is for orders placed from today and registered before the 30th December 2019.
As such there is very little time left to factory order a car and have it arrive in time, in fact the 40i model is pretty much sold out to end of Jan.
So it may be a case of taking a stock car rather than waiting for one.
Here is a flavour of what the deal looks like.
cars arriving later than 30th December would have to be quoted at 4.9% adding around £45pm.

Winter tyres have arrived, along with OEM TPMS. Just waiting for the alloys now.

Mate, have had winters a few times, they are awesome. And not just for snow as some think. Plus saves my 21” summer tyres and wheels. I will new coating both sets with C5. Winters 1st then get fitted and then summers whilst off car.

See no point in going for all season, unless current summers were needing replacement.

So will have these on from Nov-Apr probably

@X3man - Looking foreword to the pic's with the winter 19's on Nev
The ride should be better than the 21's
Are the 21's the ditch finder run flats?

I'm happy enough that the 20's on the M Sport+ pack on my X3 are NOT run flats

The 21s on Jordan's X4 weren't the Run Flats they were Pirelli Pzeros

@jassyo06 - Looking on the Uk BMW configurator it says (for the MSport+ pack)
'The M40i and M40d models include 21" M light alloy Double-spoke style 718 M wheels in Cerium Grey matt with mixed and run-flat tyres'
So as clear as mud then lol

Removing the RF's from the configurator removes the MSport+ pack
Wondering whether the X4M's are different ...

PS Just done the X4M thing on the BMW configuartor
Showing - 21" Cerium Grey Double-spoke style 718 M alloy wheels with run-flat tyres

Wondering whether there's been a change from the MY19 (which undoubtedly Jordan had) to the MY20's

Thats that sorted :superman:
lol
