    Have you got a courtesy car while they're messing with it?

    They keep giving me mine back because they think they've fixed it.

    I picked up a 428i M Sport this week :D. Thinking of ditching the runflats.
    What all season tyres would you guys recommend?

    That sucks, complexity of new cars scares me haha.

    I'd say avoid all seasons as they're never good at everything. Get good summer tyres like eagle f1 as3 or Michelin ps4s.

    I don't think there are any all season tyres in that size anyway.

    Ah Ok, cheers fellas. I'll take a look at the as3's and the ps4's then.

    Thing is I don't think it's anything too complicated, they're just working their way through the likely suspects. So far I've had a complete rear brake removal and rebuild. Its ruled out any damaged parts, sticking parts or components out of tolerance. Trouble is...i told them on day 1 I didn't think it was the brakes. I think it's something to do with the exhaust.

    Had to order new plugs and coils for my 645ci as there's random misfires in cylinders 2, 4 and 6. Had my mechanic next door neighbour look at it and he's happy it's nothing major. The rev needle doesn't fluctuate and it mostly happens whilst it's cold, which I thought was a bit odd. Hopefully sorted in a few days!

    Ok, long story cut short (see my M3 thread re regret for full story lol), M3 gone, M4 in. Same colour combo etc. Had it about 3 weeks now, and really enjoying it - a different beast to the V8 M3 though. Write up to follow.

    What's with the crap cutout in the rear bumper? Please tell me that's not the tow hook

    Yeah it looks really different in the two rear pics. One looks ok, just, the other looks like someone set to with a hole saw :D

    Could be the PCV. That's classic symptoms of it being blocked. A missfire at idle when cold.
    It's certainly worth doing the coils though as it's way, way easier to do if it does turn out to be them (the PCV is a complete sod to do due to its location at the back of the engine).

    M4 looks good. Much better on fuel too. How you finding low down traction ?

    How much heavier is it than the coupe ?

    I'd personally have ordered one with paint. Not that awful gold that they do though. Yak.
