    Another Dumb Question

    I have a dehumidifier that drains into the sink, it’s on a timer for 1 hour 4 times in 24 hrs. Never a problem with damp through the boat. John

    Rascal's Learning to Drive

    Hi Robin the cars are designed, built and tested on run flats, admitadly the first run flats a few years ago weren’t brilliant but these days there’s hardly any difference in them to standard tyres. I drive 25k a year on them and have done for the last 15 years. Too many myths on the internet putting people’s lives in danger. John

    One Extreme To The Other

    We also went to Cromer for the fireworks, it was cold after a quite mild week. The sea was quite rough with the wind. The Marshall’s were in force to take the £5 parking fee on the green but never saw any when we tried to get off and out of town, it was a bit busy ! John

    All BMW’s should have run flat tyres fitted which allows you to still drive up to 50mph if you have a puncture so no need for a spare. John

    Good choice of car Robin I’ve had 2 X5s A bit big again though for parking up especially in the multi story car parks.! Hope you’ve gone for run flats Robin as these now (they were very noisy when they first came out) are great if not bloody expensive now. BMW usually change the tyres on used cars if the trend is below 5mm as standard when buying from them. I have had a puncture a few times on these and been able to carry on my journey around Norfolk all be it at a recommended 50mph. I definatly wouldn’t put standard tyres on if you are driving around on dark nights even with a full size spare you wouldnt want to be changing them on our pitch black roads at night. whats with the ad blue I have the same 3lt engine in a 3 series bmw touring but don’t need to use it. I thought bmw had an extra bit in the exhaust so you didn’t need it (unless that’s later models?) John
