Re: Time to post the fleet

Neil I was talking to Robert T last week about the hard top wiring loom and he thinks that it should already be fitted but is probably hidden behind the trim near the passengers door that your son unscrewed briefly when you fitted the fitting kit.

A search of the forum may throw up more info.

Re: Recommend a garage

I went to Darren Wood today in Bredbury for an Inspection 2 service. Great service and nice to chat to about all things BWM, they certainly know their stuff. Thanks for the recommendation. Popped into see Swamper on the way back to sort out the sticking seat and have a play with code readers. Thanks...

I'm after two blanking plates to cover unused holes on the area around the clock and was wondering if any of you good folk had any unused ones lying around.

I know its a bit cheeky but at nearly £4 each from the stealer I'd rather give someone off here the money.
