  4. Yes original factory stock colour, I've been told (and researched) that there isn't a paint code for the ISF wheels 😔
  5. It could be many things but you'll need to get a diagnostic check. Maybe you mean the EML? One of the most common reasons is o2 sensors. Even a cheap reader should give you a fault code.
  6. My commute is about 14 miles each way, but the majority of the way in is uphill - I tend to average 45 in the morning and 52-54 on the way back. however, for the first couple of miles the average is only in the 20's while the engine warms up. If your journeys are only 2 miles then you will get pretty poor economy. Best I achieved so far was 62 in heavy traffic, M4 on a Friday afternoon

    Voice recognition, does it work for you?

    To be fair I gave up on it in my 2014 CT and haven’t even bothered trying in my 2018 so it might have improved.

    It's a shame the top mounts are so long but once you get bottom mounts in place then it'll secure it nicely. Adding the pipework will add more bracing, so that cooler isn't going anywhere. Good work.
  9. Looking good . Congrats on the new look .
  10. Once you are inside the car you are largely shielded from spurious radio signals so the fob can work there but not outside the car. You can't detect radio waves except with a receiver - they can come out of the blue (or from some emergency vehicles, etc)! Sent from my PSP7551DUO using Tapatalk
  11. Hey A...…..how many miles has your machine done?

    Sods law isnt it that once 1 thing goes wrong everything else follows just to make things even more of an inconvenience!
  16. Definitely not fob related as I got back in the car and it started so it must have been recognising the key. Unlikely to have been radio interference as I was in the middle of a very big car park, in the same place I park every day so nothing close by and no changes in the surroundings as far as I can tell.

    So my universal intercooler brackets came and its turned out quite well, although i do need a couple more brackets to secure the bottom of the cooler and another for the top to brace it. As you can see on the last 2 pics there is an extra brace to make it a little more sturdy just need another now to attach the other side. Also tried it both ways to see which way i prefer.... im thinking the blank side to make it a little more stealthy. Next up, more chopping of the bumper to accommodate its full height and area for the boost pipes to go.
  18. This evening VSC warning, engine light and the ECC light came on (is ECC right? the traction control one) when i started her up. Car ok just these lights. Any ideas ? Many Thanks Nick
  19. SE doesn't do it. Less to go wrong! Sent from my PSP7551DUO using Tapatalk
  20. I can’t remmeber if it’s to do with spec variants however, my SE-L has developed a problem in winter where the near side doesn’t tilt down but works fine in summer. I know there’s an issue where you just need to grease the worm rings inside the mirror. But if one side goes down, the other should too lol. Does the mirror tilt up and down manually?
  21. I've had my Is250 for a few weeks now and love it. I just noticed that my nearside mirror doesn't tilt down when I engage reverse. Was this only a option on the SEL spec as I have an SE. I don't have a owners manual, and using the search feature didn't yield any answers.

    Problem Opening Fuel Filler Flap

    In my opinion the i8 now compared to the LC500 is a step backwards in styling and driving experience. The major problem I found was getting in and out of it when you had cars parked either side of you. The gull wing doors were very restrictive, and it didn't matter how far away from everyone else you would park, someone would end up parking right up beside you, sparking a whole host of gymnastic moves to get in... Parking issues aside, although I didn't have a problem, if you are less than supple, getting in and out over the thick door sills could be an issue for some. The interior was typical BMW and nothing special. It drove really well and was a complete rocket ship and with the addition of AWD stuck to the road like glue. The 360 degree camera was a great feature and I sorely miss this in the LC. No BSM or adaptive cruise in the i8, both features I like in the LC. Despite being really well priced now to buy 2nd hand there are still very few i8's on the road, I think the realisation of the impracticalities of the daily use of this car is beginning to become common knowledge.

    Problem Opening Fuel Filler Flap

    You are right that it is expensive to change cars. Especially if you do it often. 360 or surround cameras are brilliant and make parking much easier. This is another strange omission on the LC. I am considering a Mercedes E53 AMG Coupe. The new BMW 8 series is nice but it is way overpriced at the moment as there are no discounts available. It will probably be heavily discounted in a years time like the old 6 series was.
  25. Kieran, if a large part of your driving is two mile trips, I can understand why your fuel consumption is high. I imagine any car with some kind of combustion engine is going to do poorly under those conditions. I think the only way around it is to get a fully electric car, or a plug-in hybrid that doesn't start the combustion engine at all during those short trips.
