    Hi Paul and welcome from another 43 owner. We ought to see some pics of your car. Don’t worry about your BMW history, we’ve all been there. In fact, some have gone back (you know who I mean, John!)

    Thanks for the warm reception Srdl, I will indeed get some images up soon. As it happens i am still a BMW owner just not BMW driver, Our X50D is now hers. John i am here for you should you need a BMW chat.

    Just out of sheer interest are there any local members from Suffolk that you are aware of ?

    Welcome!
    I grew up there. I left in 1984, when it was a 'normal-ish', posh coastal town.
    Old money, yes. But still there were proper shops and services there.
    Now, like Southwold, it's become a theme park..

    Hi Paul, welcome to the forum from another Suffolk dweller. I'm a little bit north of you but still on the coast. Not as posh as you though :rolleyes::):)

    Ive got some good chaps around the corner in Saxmundham (GEL automotive), Ive used them for the X5 although mainly auto electrical and upgrades they are equipped with both BMW ISTA and Mercedes Star so im trying to make friends.

    As it happens my friend is looking to have his SLK serviced my guys do not do servicing to my knowledge so i will recommend Alex to him. By any chance do you have website link for Alex ?
