    Correct. 360Trev is well known for converting a manual 360 into a CS/Challenge race car hybrid. Ed Blasi is now part of AV Engineering which Aldous Voice set up and they now look after Trev360s car. There’s a YouTube video from SeenThroughGlass about it.

    MC-shift won’t select (R) reverse when cold

    I tend to agree with that. Whenever it’s been sat in my garage on an Optima trickle charger there’s no problem. Because of my current garage renovation it has been sitting on the drive, sometimes on a trickle charger and on those occasion, again no problem. It would appear that minus degrees and...

    MC-shift won’t select (R) reverse when cold

    Just back from AV who plugged it in briefly. No obvious error codes. If it does it again we’ll replace the battery. Was going there anyway to check on 360 progress.

    MC-shift won’t select (R) reverse when cold

    I don’t think so Geoff, it had 75% clutch left only 4000 miles ago. I’m wondering if it could be battery related as it seems to only happen when cold.

    MC-shift won’t select (R) reverse when cold

    Morning guys, Has anyone experienced anything similar? This morning, after a minus 3 degree night, I could not select reverse. I kept getting the message ‘gear not available’ when pressing R. Took 15 minutes of warming up the engine at idle and 15-20 attempts before it finally engaged. It has...

    Hi Phil & congrats on the new purchase. We actually met briefly at a Sytner Notingham meet. Mine was the silver E61 B5 Touring with the 520d badge :)

    Spot on. I had my 360 engine rebuilt, retimed and mapped by AV/Aldous. It’s a totally different car to drive. I’ve had that car for 19 years now and done 107,000 miles in it pre rebuild so I think I am fairly qualified to comment on Trev360/Aldous’s ECU upgrades. They are not just some overlay...

    Anyone had the jab yet?

    Had mine Thursday 11 am. Was shivering with fever during the night, woke up Friday with a fussy head, sore arm and felling fairly ropey. Just about feeling ok this morning.. 95%. Ive had flu jabs before but this COVID jab definitely hit me.

    What you drinking now?

    I personally wouldn’t go anywhere near it. These kinds of schemes have been running since the 1990s along with ‘wine investment schemes’. You won’t see any likely return. Just do your own research and buy investment wines by yourself. Just remember, wine is a long term investment.. 5-10 years...

    Alpina D5 Bi-Turbo - The Daily Driver Challenge Winner

    You guys are missing an important point. With BMW main stealers you can sit in a plush lounge, in scandi inspired furniture, having free coffees and snacks whilst your car is being serviced, knowing full well the bill will be jacked up and what work has been done is carried out by a 19 year old...

    Fleet addition

    The first Porsche 911 Turbo (930) I ever saw was a forrest green car on German number plates, parked up at a sports competition in Denmark. That’s 36 years ago now and I still remember that car. I’ve never actually owned a green car but I would, because of that memory. It was stunning, I was 17...
