Your BMW probably reported back to BMW HQ that you fitted a non genuine BMW battery and they sent your car a virus to make you go to a dealer for repairs  :P
 ;D

 ;D Probably .. although it's not new enough to have telematics (or .. actually, it might be, there's an "SOS" button). At least I bought a Bosch battery, can't it just be happy that the volts are Teutonic!?
just print yourself some "genuine BMW part" stickers to stick on non BMW parts , like the ebay sellers BMW do  :y




FTFY  :y

I was out training tonight. -3 here apparently.  Was only cold for about 15 mins.  After that it was quite toasty.
There are some proper pansified knob heads around...

Been doing an induction all week, rooms are quite warm, so have had the aircon on full chat... Nice and comfortable in short sleeved shirt but one chap insisted on making a drama out of putting on two jumpers and a coat rather than asking to turn the temperature up slightly.

Given that he was doing the job, (working out on the Ramp), last year, but started in May and finished in October, he's in for one hell of a surprise next week when we start outside ;D

I will be laughing my nads off wearing a T shirt, fleece and hi vis. I can see him wearing full artic gear or asking for a job inside ;D

For me it's not about being 'ard, it's just you don't let your mates/team down.  Plus I don't really feel the cold unless I am sick. I often wear a vest jacket outside just so that people don't think I am deranged.

I'm 'sayin nuffin'. :)

With your taste in certain women, I don't think you are in a position to judge m'lud ::)

Range Rovers certainly feel like you only have to go round a corner at above walking pace to put them on their side. Are we sure there was a second vehicle involved? ;D
Having driven a few Range Rovers (did I mention, I really fancy one), I can confirm the powerful ones exhibit chronic understeer when driven properly, rather than dangerous body roll :D

Yes indeed. Back in the 1970's my police friend lost two of his colleagues in Hampshire when their's over turned :'(
So a RR classic then.  The suspension mounting probably rusted away.

That is why the most common police tactical pursuit large vehicle is the BMW X5, with the BMW 530d also in those traffic divisions. The former is fast and very stable , unlike the RR.

I assume that the Royal Family have to stick to the "British" Range Rover, but no doubt, the way things are going they will have to opt for their natural German choice of BMW X5's as well  ;D ;)

I notice on my whiteboard in the garage (I need to scribble stuff down, seeing as I'm old), the Battlebus has a whole heap of shite that needs doing.

If only I could find it
you lent it out to a relative  ::)

needing loads more work than you noted on your whiteboard  :D ;D

Drove the CDX estate for the first time in a week..... so much spray and drizzle on the roads  :(  Noticed on the way home in the dark, the headlight washer not working on the offside. Must be a blockage, as nearside working ok. Bumper needs to come off in the Spring anyway, so it can wait until the better weather.

you have to appeal to the gods of teutonic engineering spirit of fair play and forgiveness. Which they don't have.


And you've already proved yourself not worthy by attempting to fix your own car. Suicide by sucking on the tailpipe of a VAG diesel is mandatory.

The broad thrust of 'leave' and the likes of Farage  was...... they sell more to us than we sell to them. They need us more than we need them. Therefore they will give us everything we ask for.There would be no negative consequences for the UK. We would have our cake and eat it.

The EU 27 would be submissive to our every demand. The UK would take back control. That was the script. :y
But only the deranged and brainwashed actually believed that, surely?


you have two And a half years worth of evidence to the contrary. With more coming every day.


Disappointing, isn't it?

To quote Francis Urquhart........You might very well think that......I couldn't possibly comment. ::)
