Analogue clock losing time

Post by M3BMC » Tue 16 Nov, 2010 07:49

Hi all, My M Roadster's analogue clock is losing time at a great rate. Lost 2 hours in 12 hours last night. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

The clocks have changed to GMT now so that's one hour accounted for :lol:

Have you wound it up recently?

Maybe it has a Kinetic movement and the car is not being driven enough?

Try slowing down? Thats the problem with the M's you hit a time warp when you put your foot down :P

I have the same problem with the clock sometimes.

I find driving at 88 mph helps me recover the lost time.

I think these jokers are taking the p!$$, remove the clock and take it to a jewler he should have a sonic cleaning tank a 5 min immersion should do the trick.

But first you will have to remove it from the dash with a sonic screwdriver.

Why not leave it in the dash but take it to a LARGE sonic bath and get the whole car cleaned at the same "time" :oops:

That will take a lot longer than a '5 min immersion' would have thought?
