Thanks. Using the Golf as a shopping trolley! Get rid of it in 2-3 months. First, I need to get the faults on the BMW sorted.

Yes, they are both blue accent keys. I am not that daft to have accepted any other! Probably been too daft, as I bought a BMW.

I am pretty peeved off at present.
Chill. Its Christmas. Enjoy your car. The newness wears off quickly. It will all get sorted. Small issues. I suspect you'll need to take it in to get the leather sorted.

Regarding the key, its possible they swapped it with another car. Sure its possible the key is bad, but way more likely they swapped it accidentally. What would worry me more is where is the other key to your car. Sometimes dealers get lazy and just order a key replacement. Lovely, but that doesn't answer where the other key is to your car. I would ask them to be clear with you on what's occurring with the key. If they order a replacement be sure to take your car to Service and ask them to remove the bad/lost key from memory so it can never be used to open/start/steal your car.

I can be both chilled and pi**ed off at the same time as I am a multi-mooder.
Let's see what transpires on Friday when I visit the Service Department.
Many thanks for your input. Much appreciated.

It's so blooming fast. Before I knew it, I was doing OMG+ mph and still accelerating! Sheeeeeeiiiiiiit! So quiet. No wind noise, no road noise. Bloody marvellous.

No John, unfortunately. They are street children in Central London and have to learn to fend for themselves. A 2 bedroom flat on my street starts at 0.75 million, a 3 bedroom house starts at 1.25 million. There are no garages on offer. We are packed like sardines.
So, treat 'em mean and keep 'em keen and they'll survive, hopefully.

Would you like to offer the three of us shelter?

Na as my daughter is costing an arm and a leg living in london and working in Canary Wharf , her contract is for 6 months which I hope will be extended so she can take "the Load" but at the moment I have it, no complains though she is on her way.

I know my pictures are low rent. I don't have a camera as if fell down a cliff. I'll borrow/buy/steal one just for you. Sorry to purloin the forum with my lousy photography. Please forgive.
