  1. Unusual - i've seen it more BMW more frequently, usually when they've been servicing the car since new.
  2. The ad doesn't mention if it's been changed before, so could have been on 2nd or 3rd belt.
  3. Looks good
  4. Price drop to £175
  5. Have also been using the e-brake more and it definitely has improved with usage. I could drive off with it applied previously, no longer the case now.
  6. Had brake fluid changed too, pedal feel much improved Good service again from Diamond Vehicles
  7. New Denso compressor finally fitted, and all is again quiet
  8. Wonders of digital photography Norman, the car was pretty filthy in that pic :) Saying that, it doesn't take much to get a decent depth of shine on it, I think down to the previous owners looking after it
  9. Bulbs item 351224875894
  10. I bought item 201755121853
  11. "a foot operated parking/handbrake" guess you'll be using 'e-brake' from now on :) ..... Does anyone know if the e-brake will become more effective if I start using it more frequently? Or will some adjustment/repair be needed first
  12. Far too busy at work at present, and with mot due on Sunday i have not had a chance to visit earlier for a pre-test check up. Fearing the worst due to a weak e-brake and exhaust leak in the usual spot, I was pleasantly surprised to see it pass, with e-brake efficiency at 24% (16% min) and a "minor exhaust leak". The previous advisories re rusty suspension components also mentioned again, unsurprisingly. (3yrs running). Great service from the guys at Diamond Vehicles in Park Royal, west London near where I work ( , a very unassuming non specialist garage who I picked based purely on location and the reviews on good garage scheme. I was so happy, and with the garage happy to fit customer supplied parts I've just ordered a new Denso aircon compressor from Rockauto for £199 together with a refurb denso alternator for £120 - both plus shipping £35 and duty. Don't actually need an alternator, it just seemed cheap!
  13. Can you tap a torx bit into there?
