    Just covered 1192 miles, got it in today.
    Had the front Disks and pads replaced @ 690 miles, the disks are showing some signs of rust lines coming back!!!!!, never ever had a brake problem with any BMW before, they say they will have a look.
    Anyone else had such problems with rust and disks?.o_O
    PS) I have been hard braking to shift it but to no avail.

    The only slight problems iv ever had with brakes John, is the sticking on, if you dont dry them off properly after washing. I think Nick has had problems with his pads, on his previous car, where they came apart somewhat. Keep us informed of progress. Hope you enjoy the ride home, on full boost now :D.

    Hi Simon, I have had the sticking problem, I use a compressed Air gun to dry them now, and a quick forward reverse braking before putting it away, the first lot of Pads disintegrated , will see what they find.;)

    Mine had new pads at 3500 miles due to damaged pads and scored disks - pads replaced and disks renewed - they claim due to stone or something trapped between the disk and pad - i argued it was like that since new - but nevertheless it has new discs and pads on it in January - was fine when i brought it home - now done about 100 miles since then and moved it today and they were squeaking like a newly weds bed springs - will see what its like on a run this weekend but it may need to go back in...especially reading your experience John...?

    When the hired help come to you, it saves on your mileage and petrol costs... :) - I am joking of course!

    On that thread though, I did see an interview online from a USA new network, where women of the oldest profession were claiming financial assistance from the federal government during covid-19 as they claimed they were essentially front line workers....

    Lol. I have set the mileage much much higher on this one but tbh if prices look firm in a few months I’ll just settle it. I didn’t fancy buying it cash when the economy could fall on its ****.

    Economy isnt going to crash - after all this investment by the world's govt's under covid, they cant afford for it to tank they need it to thrive to earn their money back...they will support it for aslong as they need to ensure it survives and booms when we are out of this lockdown...so they can start paying back the loans they have taken themselves...

    Was just going to post something similar. When this is all over, if it ever is, there is going to be such a feel good factor, that money will be being bounded around like no tomorrow, and I think it will continue for a long time.

    Agree Simon the markets are going to be flooded with investors both private and corporate, inc. pension schemes, venture capital etc...that there will be quite a boom...my recommendation is - if you want to invest, now is the time to buy some stocks or other commodities...inc. precious metals, energy etc...

    because when the reigns are cut...trade will bounce back very high...

    Especially Gold and Oil - but not limited to them...even food produce will see a spike as restaurants and hotels reopen and the travel industry restarts...take your pick - there really wont be many bad investment choices, but Gold, Oil, Construction, Automotive and Aviation are safe bets...

    However, I personally am steering clear of media (tv networks), sports and online gaming & streaming stocks - their fortunes will be reversed imho when we come out of lockdown...

    Yes - but I would personally recommend you find yourself a reputable trustworthy broker that you can get to know - he will guide you where to move your money and many work solely on commission (which is negotiable)...

    Remember it's your money, make it and the broker work for you...

    Finding out the brokers birthday, wife's name and birthdate, anniversary dates, kids birthdates etc... and sending them something nice on some of those occasions will also be money well invested....for the cost of a box of Belgian Chocolates, bunch of flowers and a good Champagne (not Moet or other supermarket rubbish...remember he/they have a certain lifestyle & social circle too)...
