Paul you noticed the centre cup holder in front of the gearshift seems to be cooled ??
Sat in the car tonight with heater on 23 and thought WTF is that draft coming from in the middle near the heater controls - the lid was freezing n so was the cup holder bay.
Not noticed this before :?

Anyway first real dry night tonight OMG boy does this car go :<beep>_you: :piss:

Almost a year in and only one minor fault - blocked headlamp washer pump
Gone but not forgotten boohoo !!!

Hadn't noticed that. There are 2 in front of the gear lever as well as a holder for the car key. Which holder do you think is chilled as never noticed my coffee cooling at anything other than a regular rate.

Can't say the same regarding faults as my car is in the process of being rejected:(

Had a serious misfire on cylinder 1 with the resulting Drivetrain Failure warnings, full blown Massey Ferguson limp more & low loader home in late November when the car had covered just 1600 miles, it was sudo diagnosed to be a fuel injector fault which turned out to be total bollox as the same occurred on Tuesday (1900 miles later) when i again had to be low lowered home but this time i was the other side of the country.

BMW have admitted the 1st fix may not have been the correct remedy as they'd not got a great handle on the actual cause of the fault, purely fishing. I told BMW UK then that if the fault occurred again then the car was coming back & that's where we are today:(
