  1. Dashcam fitted, rear camera working treat, all cable hidden, very pleased and thank you so much for your advice, greatly appreciated. It still such a shame they put the fusebox in such an inaccessible place, WHO DOES THAT🥵
  2. This is the card I found on the internet. I have circled the fuses I believe are for my car. Also, I have never had so much trouble trying to access a fusebox in my life. You have to take off so much so you can work on the fusebox itself, what were BMW thinking
  3. Hi, I bought a WOLFBOX Rear View Mirror Camera:Mirror Dash Cam Front and Rear 4K+2.5K for Car with 12" Full Touch Screen, Waterproof Backup WDR Camera, Night Vision, G-Sensor, Parking Assist,Free 64GB Card & GPS. Ran all the cables under the trim, looks really good. I also bought the Hard Wire to plug into the fuse box. My question is which space do I plug it in, everything on line says pull out an existing fuse and use the adaptor to add 2 fuses but I have lots of live slots. I have spent hours on line and different people say different thing. I have a Battery cable (Contast) yellow\ & a red cable ACC (only works when car is on) I attach a photo of my fuse box and I was either 1 - Going to plug it into one of the free space that tally with constant power (bat) and only when key on (Acc) 2 - No 54 - take 7.5 fuse - purple out (Bat) and plug it there, far bottom left of photo & No. 57 - take 15 amp fuse out bottom right blue fuse
  4. Hi Dave, Bike brake lead worked a treat and now installed with no visible cable. Thank you so much for the advice. Another job ticked off Joseph
  5. Hi Dave, Many thanks for that, I will keep you updated with the steps I took. Great advice once again Joseph
  6. Photos: 1 - Car 2 - CAble plugged in to central consol by hand brake 3 - airvents and storage compartments removed 4 - Ran the cable along the plastric trim by drivers side wopuld like to feed it up to the dash. 5 & 6 - view from above to see if there is acces from the drivers footwell. 7 - Just shows where I would like the cable to come out It all looks really tight space wise and may not be possible but thought I would try.
  7. I want to run a mobile lead from the central glove box adaptor along the driver's side, tucking the cable behind the plastic trim. I have removed the dashboard storage box and central air vents, I am trying to get the cable from the drivers foot well up to the central storage box. This is where I am stuck, does anyone know if I can run the cable without removing the radio, air con etc etc. I can send photos if it is easier. Many thanks, Joseph
  8. great advice, will check everything before I order anything, thanks again
  9. Hi Stu, Thanks for that, so just rear shocks and springs, not fronts? Quarry do them at a very reasonable price.
  10. No noise that I can hear, it's just every bump in the road I feel. When I bought the car it was scrapping on most roads, so replaced all the tyres and it was better, as it did not scrape the road so much.
  11. I believe they are 16" according to the tyres but when I measured they were 17"
  12. Great, so I saw on this site how to remove the empty phone cradle and taped up and tucked the wires behind the central consul and replaced the empty cradle. I remember someone saying they found a replacement central consul so I have more space, so I will google to see if I can find one. Thanks again for your advice. Joseph
  13. The tyres I changed to were 205/55R 16 - The wheel size is 17". Spent a fortune on sorting out the splutter, so reluctant to buy smaller new wheels atm. Do you think the car has been lowered, please see attached photos. Many thanks.
  14. So here goes: Very first car and others: Triumph Herald 1200 (12/50), white sunshine roof and red seats TR6 x 3 Porsche 924 Turbo Range Rover P38 Jaguar XJ x4(XJ40, X300 & 2 x 308X) Daimler Super V8 LWB Sabb 900 cab Volvo V70 Mini one Range Rover L322 BMW 120i E88 ------ Wife's cars Morris Marina Citroen Diana (2CV) Golf cab Series 1 Golf Cab new version
  15. One final question, can I just clip the cables and hide them, after I have capped them off of course.
