Re: BMW will charge owners a subscription fee to use features like heated seats

I don't think it will help them sell more cars.
Once people start waking up to the idea of subscription, they will then make the logical conclusion of paying for a 'car by the hour' concept.

Re: Car of the week

The Auction ended with the price still quite low. I can't remember the price but I think it was less than $2,000. I would imagine that there was a reserve, as I think a more realistic price is...

Re: MBCNSW Drive

There were 5 420SELs, my 560SEL, a 300SEL and a gen 1 500SE that had been retrofitted with the update interior and smooth cladding panels.

There was a MBCNSW drive with the Rolls Royce club today. I went along and we made a big W126 line up.

Re: C107's 560SEL

I just got the SEL back from having some work done on it.
The most important one was having the guides replaced.

Re: 420SEL vs 560SEL

Re: C107's 560SEL

There is a mob that do it, if mine ever breaks, I will send it to them and have the bluetooth module added. The little kogan dongle works well for now. It was only $20.
