just had the new tyres fitted but the young chap said they couldn't do the tracking untill i replaced the near side brake caliper as it had sized ,but before they started to work on my zed I told them that the near side wheel might be hot as I thought I had fixed it but wasn't sure, any way there was not pulling eather way when I was driving so I didn't think it was too bad but I was going to fit a new caliper any way, they fitted the new tyres and said come back when I he'd fixed the brakes, on the way home there was a lot of noise from the tyres handling was wobbly and the stearing wheel was way out , at home I got her up on the lift took the near side wheel off nut noticed the the arrows on the tyre didn't look correct yep that had fitted the right tyre on the left and the left tyre on the right , got a new calier £89 fitted swmbo helped beading the brakes so I'm going back on Monday to inform them that they need to get some training done on their fitters

That is really bad! You should 'Name & Shame' them. Just imagine if that had happened to some poor old lady, or someone who didn't know about such things...? It is a real safety issue.
Anyway, in keeping with the subject of the thread, I bought a new aerial grommet for m Z3 today, as I've been reading the various stories on here about worn out ones causing leaks, & although mine isn't leaking, it's starting to perish, so I will be replacing it. I saw the grommets on eBay, but they were more expensive than BMW main dealer prices, so I went to the dealership to get one.

A (perhaps controversial) led BMW badge. A couple of quid, a quick couple of hours to route the cable through the bootlid to the rear lights. Goes well with the ones I put in the gills a couple of years ago.
