Problems / Re: Front brake disc retaining screw
« on: January 16, 2018, 07:45:10 PM »
My new discs that I fitted a few months ago came with new screws.
And the discs for our Z4 came with new screws too.
Maybe different brands of discs give you screws, mine were Brembo.

Mine were Pagid and I had to buy new rertaining screws.

New discs don't come with new screws, you have to buy them separately. I had to drill both of mine out as the garage who changed the discs last tightened the screws too much! Not sure what size tap you need. Don't really know why the screw is there as the 5 wheel studs hold the disc in place anyway!

Low 20s at a steady 70, high teens around town, low teens if you want to enjoy yourself.

Yep, that's about what I used to get out of mine :)

Update -

Dear All, a quick update to say that despite my best efforts I can't get hold of a back up and it looks like the site has gone - again. I can't quite believe it but I've been massively let down by a company called North Hosts who simply stopped provided a service last week with absolutely no warning. After some thought, I'm going to start again but this time with a bulletproof, watertight, nuclear winter proof site with built-in contingency to ensure that no-one can let me down like this again. I can't give an accurate timeframe of when this will happen but I'll start working on it asap. As ever, thanks for your patience and apologies again for the disastrous events over the past week.


Thanks for the update and all your efforts to get the site going again. Good news that you are going to start a new site :ok:

Same happened a few years ago but I had not followed it since. Was a new site started?

Yes, bmwland folded and BMWlander was started. It has been going for a few years now but it did have a problem a year or so ago when the site was down for a couple of days. BMWlander has been down for almost a week now :o :o

Do you know if you could use Audi or Merc tyres on an X5?

If your gut feeling is that you don't like silver cars and might not enjoy it then I would go with that and get the black one. It would be a shame to get the silver one and regret it.
Both cars look good and will drive exactly the same, so go for the one you would enjoy the most - the black one :)

Think I must be doing something wrong. When I upload my photo it appears in the Tinypic box. I then say add to post but nothing happens and when I submit my post the photo is not there. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Just tried that and the mirrors don't move so it looks like some coding is required. Do you think an indy would be able to do this?

General Discussion / Folding mirrors
« on: September 25, 2017, 08:48:17 PM »
The mirrors on my X5 fold in when I press the button on the drivers door. Can I get them to fold in automatically when the car is locked and unfold when the car is unlocked? The car is booked in later this week at an Indy for a service and brake fluid change and I wondered if they could get the mirrors to do what I want.
