Re: New Forum !

Neil / Charles, Just an idea, is it possible to set all members email notification for private messages to on? Mine was set to off when I checked. I sent forum member Ikule a PM a week ago and as of yet he has not opened it as he would have done prior to the recent changes. I also think this would ...

Re: B10 3.3 E39 Stolen - Reward now on offer

Hi

I must have missed this when it happened - I usually flag on the register if a car has been stolen - that way anyone checking would be immediately alerted !

It was 72 wasn't it ?

Re: Engine numbers which are built at BMW

All current era ALPINA engines are assembled by BMW now - ALPINAs time and effort now goes into the extensive R&D which effectively results in them specifying the components used to build their engines. Gone are the days of hand built engines in Buchloe - such are the advances in manufacturing all t...

Re: New Forum !

Hi, Firstly great work on updating the forum, I really like the new version! I've just noticed a niggle on the DMs though, when I post a message direct to someone it remains in my outbox and doesn't appear in Sent. If I go into the message in the Outbox the message history shows the message as havi...

Re: Alpina B5 on grand tour

Agree it would have been nice to see the B5s lap - I guess the footage was quite similar and hence they decided to not elongate the feature.

Re: New Forum !

Hi

I think I've ironed out the issues on the main site / register - I had to do some additional upgrades to get the forum to work which had caused some unexpected issues !

As before if you spot an issue let me know and I'll investigate

Thanks for your patience
