    Correct, around 50oC from memory.
    I have the diagnostic software to monitor temps so il be sorted that way.
    Il do it in my uncles pit so that will take care of the levelling situation as well.

  3. I try! :D
     
  4. Got my wheels back, fitted with badges and centre caps. Very happy. It’s totally lifted the finish of the car to the next level. It’s still a 13 year old motor but looks a quality product.

    Coincidentally it went back to BMW today for a recall on the battery cable which has 3 possible stages of repair.
    1st is just a re-grease of the battery cable bulkhead fitting in the boot, 2nd is some fettling and a minor repair before re-greasing and 3rd is to cut the offending section of boot floor out before replacing the square with a plastic sandwich with a new bulkhead fitting and reconnect the cable.
    Mine was just stage 1 with a report of no corrosion beneath the vehicle. Very pleased with that.
    I also got to play with this for 7 hours :D
