    Just converted the currency, that's about £40gbp / $50usd / €45eur, good thing you managed to swap them for new ones :eek:

    You got any pictures of the cheeky villain that wanted to ruin your day? :p

    That first image is so much like "no, I don't want to, no, I won't". :)

    Well.. Had to drive a 911 to a somewhat far city but it didn't happen, missed cars and coffee, missed a vintage car meet, also an Audi shoot. Also missed a deal on a Nikon d750 with a 50mm 1.4 for 300e. My dog also got a bad wound that needs to be cleaned up and stuff. Idk, everything went wrong today

  8. @RobikV3 I know that feel bro, But be positive, well at least try. Maybe try working out or something, it really helps to remove all of those sad emotions. You will forget about her next month, I had simillar situation but actually I was rejected (kinda) so I know what you feel. Pozdro

    BMW keeps giving me problems at the moment, today I've had a sidelight bulb go out which is nothing really. In addition to that over the last two weeks I've had two ABS sensors fail, brake pressure sensor fail, EGR thermostat fail, rear top suspension mounts started giving grief and it has decided it likes sipping on oil as well when I've never had to top it up in over four years.

    Best part is the one ABS sensor that has failed is the one on the rear left which controls the speedometer, fuel gauge, MPG readout, trip computer and overall mileage reading. So I've spent the week driving around with no idea about what is going on apart from what revs the engine is at, the odometer doesn't even work and it has been sat on 146,356 miles all week despite doing about 300 miles.

    Ah well, next month its due two new rear tyres and a service as well so more money to spend on it.

    @GTAMADDOG How old is she these days? Irregardless, that is a ton of things going wrong and it sounds like it's all in the electrics which is never fun, either to find yourself or in paying someone to do it. :(

    That's quite funny about the mileage. Does that have to be disclosed in some way though or will that record be somewhere where the main display can be updated to its actual figure?

    I guess as long as the car is still enjoyable then, it's just a price to pay.... maybe.

    To be fair she'll be 14 this year and I haven't had to spend too much on it up to this point in the scheme of things. I guess doing 300 miles a week is starting to take its toll a bit, but generally the engine is solid, it's just every sensor around it that wants to play up currently. Got the sidelight bulb done already so one less light on the dash for now, I've just got the DSC, brake and ABS lights to get rid of now :p

    I pretty much only take it to BMW to get an oil service done each year as it does have fully stamped service book with only one stamp not being a BMW stamp. Everything else I do myself including all filters, brakes, other engine stuff and suspension. I can do an oil service quite easily myself, but as it has a decent record already I'll keep it going while I've got the car.

    Regarding the mileage - I have no idea. I've read about a tamper-dot appearing on the odometer display when a BMW detects a mileage discrepancy which could be a pain if it does appear on mine, but I'll have to see when I hopefully get it all back to normal this weekend. As far as the ECU is concerned it probably thinks I've sat in the car revving it up and down for hours on end because the sensors aren't telling it anything, haha. It's probably bad to say, but all being well it will have 'only' done 300 miles more than the odometer shows so it isn't like I've shaved 50,000 miles off it like a lot of them will have had by now.

    Other problems include a leaky differential, auto-lights and auto-wipers don't work, the other front wing is starting to rust now so I'll have to get the replacement on at some point soon, the rear wheel arch is going rusty (common) and the air conditioning doesn't work (leak). Probably reads like a complete shed now after the photos I sometimes post of it :p

    I've bought most of the parts already, it's just getting the time and inclination to fit them in the current temperatures. I've lived without the auto-lights/wipers (still work as if they were just standard lights/wipers) and lack of air conditioning for a couple of years now so I'm not fussed about those. I was pretty close to trading it in for an E90 330i (N53) a week ago, but those things aren't without their own problems either, so it's a case of better the devil you know for now I think.

    You are right why go into the unknow when you already know your car very well.

    Working on your car during this weather is lets say problematic specially with the tempreture drops.
