  1. Because it probably doesn't have the ability to extract them and let's be honest, you didn't either as it clearly says in the instructions to do so. ;)
  2. Mine was even rarer till you copied me. ;)
  3. Stick a couple of coats of Collinite 476 all over, wheels an' all and it'll last easily till next March.
  4. The mods are like good referees, you forget they are there. Keep up the good work guys and gals. B)
  5. give us some examples, i'm intrigued.
  6. There's some heavy stuff in those to be fair. ;)
  7. That's more than likely down to the idiots in the call centres who don't have a clue about what they are talking about. Fitting winter tyres should not put your insurance up or give them an excuse to void insurance. You should ask to speak to someone more knowledgeable on the subject.
  8. Me? Nothing. It's fine as it is as far as I'm concerned. I mean, how much hard work is scrolling the middle button on your mouse to reveal all the threads on a page and why should the forum change just to suit people who want to use a smart phone to browse the internet.
  9. If the extra cost and storage aren't an issue, then go ahead and get them as they are much, much better than summer tyres. This pic was from winter 2009/10, last years was worse and you can see how far I got that morning, couldn't even get off the drive. With winter tyres I'd have got to work no problem. Great if you want a lie in though. ;) Personally, I can't justify the best part of £1000 for tyres to enable me to use the BMW for the one week mine was off the road.
  10. They're insightful, educational, sarcastic and sometimes funny, what better credentials for Pinned threads.
  11. There are 6 pinned threads out of 40 on a page, that's around 15% of the real estate, not too much to complain about. Ha ha, just noticed there are 7 now, still not a problem though, that's what the mouse wheel was invented for.
  12. ..or just get a better smart (sic) phone. ;)
  13. Back to the original post, I would say they have done everything they needed to do for you, ie sort out the bumper. The problems lies in the way they dealt with you on a personal level, ie telling you they would do it whilst your wait when that was far from the truth and lack of communication. Use the feedback from that the dealer gave you and be honest on it and if that means criticising the salesman,then so be it, that's what it's for. You won't get anything for it, you have no right to compensation from what I've read, just give them the feedback and leave it at that.
  14. Mine does, 40 threads per page and 40 posts per page in threads, so yours is obviously not that smart then. ;) Personally, couldn't be arsed browsing or interacting on forums with my phone, too much of a pain all round. Lol, there's only 8 people voted. And some of them probably voted like that because they don't know about the 40 thread options. The majority, I feel, use forums with PC's and it is perfectly fine on a PC.
  15. Leave it as it is. People are having problems because their profile isn't set up properly to show 40 threads/posts per page. See my other post on the subject for details of how to change. Maybe make it a pinned thread.
