Irrelevant to me. I'll be there either way. Best event in the calendar.

Was nice last year to meet the Bovensiepens, Erik and the Sytner staff but not a deal breaker for FOS.

I use Opie Oils who do much better offers than ECP. sorry Bri! :D Well hello there my good man! I've said this before and it's true...the advice and service is much better at Opie than anywhere else I've used. I've stuck with them and they've been very good to me over the years. Keep up the good wo...

theyre notorious for bumping the price so that the final price after discount is what the ;unter normally pays.

I've never paid more than £50 for 8 litres (just over £6 a litre) for Castrol Edge for over 10 years and I use Opie Oils who do much better offers than ECP. sorry Bri!

Yes of course...sorry if the tone was wrong.

We all have our personal preferences and we like what suits us best.

Hopefully see you at the Classic :)

Phil, having driven the E and F gen 6 series I think the only thing we see eye to eye on is the driving experience is different despite the fact they are mainly built on the same parts. The 5 has far better visibility and comfort. The 6 is sat too low, uncomfortable to get in and out of and with red...

The B6 will have a higher quality interior than a B5 as it sits higher up in the model line up. I do not agree with this at all...it's a coupe version of the 5 series and this is reflected in the fact that all the transposable parts are identical from the 5 series. This is the same as the 4 series ...

I think your MOT centre may be right.

We had this on our 330d. It would start from cold, but if you turned it off it wouldnt start again. Nightmare when the little one was 5 months old and it broke down far from home.

Changed the camshaft sensor. Perfect after that.

Use the code edge20 for 20% off. Mention you're a member of this forum too. Free shipping kicks in at 60.

I buy all my oil once a year when it's on sale and it's usually £46 for 8l.

Even if another place is cheaper, Opie get my money for the good advice on the phone and the good customer service.

I don't believe so. Just normal rationale. If someone has the same car as you, they can display false number plates which will mean speeding and parking ticket enquiries will go to the innocent party and not them. I'm not fussed because there isn't another Malachite Green E60 B5 so not an issue for ...
