    Black Ash or Dark Ash W205

    Looking to order a W205 Sport and considering whether to get black ash or dark ash. Seen several cars with black ash, and like the matt finish, but personally prefer natural wood colour (i.e. brown). Is the dark ash interior matt or gloss? If it is gloss, does it show fingerprints and...

    Wheel protector for black or dark alloys?

    Hello all - finally a spell of good weather to give my new motor its first wash. I've got the Autoglym pack with everything you need in. When it come to finishing my alloys with the hydrophobic Autoglym Wheel Protector says it can't be used on dark wheels - I think it creates a cloudy finish...

    My 6 pot diesel from the dark side lol

    As well as the misses B170, I also have a 2004 BMW 330D touring Sport with manual 6sp. I sold a nigh on 500bhp Audi S4 for this car due to it ticking every box, good mpg, performance, practicality as had a large dog at the time. I also work with large diesels so made sense buying one. I...

    Indoor Energy Saving Light Bulbs Like the Dark Ages

    These bulbs are expensive, a pain to dispose of, and worst of all bloody useless. Its like living in the Dark Ages, 240 volt 9 watt small screw golf ball cost about £7 each don't last 10.000 hours as claimed and are about as bright as a 25watt conventional bulb. Am I the only one who thinks we...

    Privacy glass too dark

    This may rank as the most daft question of 2015 but here goes. I really don't like the tinting on my rear windows. In anything below broad daylight it's impossible to see out of the rear windows when reversing etc. Plus I think it just looks daft. I'm assuming that, as it's factory fitted...

    Gone to the dark side...

    *Puts on flameproof coat* And got myself an Audi S5 TFSI. Had pretty much every option box ticked and Audi Exclusive Sprint Blue paint. Obviously will be tuning it up, when I'm used to it. Got to be truthful, only had it for six days and I've taken to it much more than the E-Cabrio...

    Looking for a used E-Class now tha I've defected from the dark side

    Hi everybody - newbie here! ;) After 20 years of driving BMW 3, 5, 6 and 7 series I now need an estate for the first time in my life. The BMWs have been getting way too harsh riding in recent years and my spinal disk degeneration is not going to get any better. I think BMW have re-dressed the...

    CLS Wheel Colour Change - How Dark?

    Apologies for another wheel refurb/colour change thread but I'm trying to canvas opinion of colour for my 2009 black CLS. The wheels have been badly refurbished by the previous owner and the lacquer has already started to crack, plus I've curbed them in a few places as I get use to the car's...

    Auto Dimming Mirrors dark in daylight

    Pretty much what it says on the tin: were misbehaving sometime OK but tending to go fully dark at random. Sticking finger over sensor corrects problem but returns soon. Sensor problem I would think. Easy to fix?
