    @Dramatic_Hammer I had the same after having some recall work done on my e91. I took it back to BMW and they put the car on charge to get the battery charged back up. They had it on charge for about 6 hours and I took it for a 200 miles drive after that and its been fine since.

    Not sure what is causing yours but getting it charged somewhere might help solve the issue.

    One of the things that I really like about the C55 is that when I get in it at the airport, after a week of hire cars, you can actually feel what the tyres are doing and there's a satisfying weight to it.

    I've never found the integrated extractor effective on my orbital. It catches some but definitely not all dust. Could you get some polythene sheets and tape the area off so you can at least let it settle and hoover up the remains that your orbital doesn't collect?

    I have the added issue of needing my doors a slightly reduced height as my extension has a sloping roof so I have lintel height restrictions, plus its a listed building so can't make any changes to the roof. I'd expect to pay a little more for this but not ££,£££'s

    @dt I was thinking the same - @Cornish_Bike what size doors are we talking. I'm due to get an extension done in the next few months and have not budgeted that kind of dorrah for doors...

    Anyone had much success in draft proofing sash and cash windows? And if so what product/s did you use.

    Seems to be loads in the market but nothing really stands out.

    Thanks @Bainbridge - I had completely forgotten about Little Greene. I'd used it before on an old place and seem to remember being happy. Just ordered 1L of the Intelligent Exterior (!!).

    Best paint brand / type for painting my wooden front door? Something with a fairly good colour range too...

    Recommendations appreciated!
