My car is broken and is unlikely to be fixed in time.

£250 and my place is yours.

Your rad and my stupid brakes. I hope the ABS module bleed process works, else I’m screwed.

If you do the Indian rain dance backwards, it will be sunny.

The Michelin P2g I use needs an ambient air temperature of 2.2C min to work and a operating temperature of 23.8C to be optimal.
Highly unlikely to see that if the weather forecast doesn't improve for Sunday.
You boys on road tyres will be running ring's

pleased my Zestinos turned up today if Malc's wets arent going to work!

Having said that, all academic if I can't fix the play in my right rear wheel bearing/driveshaft. Just changed wheel bearing for a second brand new OEM one and play is still there so much be driveshaft. Anyone got one near London/Gatwick/Woking I can borrow for the weekend as mine have just been refurbed by driveshaftsuk so need to send them back!
Need to get it fixed tomorrow morning as have another Spires setup booked for 4pm tomorrow...

at 1-2 degrees a road tyre or semi slick should be good.

Unless my brakes suddenly sort themselves out, I may have to drop out. Possibly my master cylinder is the issue.

Bleeding and the ABS module self-bleed have been done 3 times, no air coming out. The first press of the brake pedal goes quite far down but feels ok, 2nd press and the pedal is firm right at the very top as it should be.

I’ve enquired with BMW and master cylinders aren’t available for at least 2 months.

Internet suggests there is still air in the m/c and that jacking up the rear of the car quite high could shift it.
