    I know this is mentioned a fair bit, but bathroom extractors. Whats the most effective? I have an extractor fan that doesn't work - supposing it did some time its vented into the loft which seems mad.

    I want to get someone out to fit a new one and get it vented outside. What sort should I be looking for. What I'd like is something that is quiet but very effective - would an inline unit be ok?

    @tbc That is pretty much an identical situation I found myself in when sorting my last flat out. After stripping wallpaper off the plaster behind was a mess in the entire room. I got myself some good filler (Tourpret) and tried to fill/sort the wall out as good I could. I then covered the wall with lining paper. Basically exactly what @Airhead said.

    The room looked amazing afterwards and although it took a little longer to get the lining paper up I was glad I'd done it.

    Are there specific rims for run flats? Given I don't have a spare wheel I'll need to get winter run flats - but if there are specific rims for run flat tyres that will narrow my options.

    Yeah it will be quite an initial outlay to get another set of wheels + tyres but might be the best route - I have run flat tyres so cross climate options are limited there too.

    We've dome some ropey drives home from the highlands in snow last year and only just made it back - so many others had come off the roads. We're on the edge of Loch Lomond national park and commute into Glasgow - the roads are not what I'd call major until we get close to Milngavie/Bearsden so I do expect snow/ice to be a problem.

    I'll head to ebay and see what wheels are around for my e90. Cheers

    Looking to get some new tyres and it seems prudent to consider winter ready or cross climate type tyres. Does anyone have any experience on using an all-rounder that has a winter certification such as cross climate from Michelin? Or has anyone done a full seasonal replace for spring/summer and autumn/winter.

    I feel like the latter is a huge ball ache but might be more practical long term.

    Disclaimer - I live in Scotland so snow is highly likely at some point and my commute is circa 35 miles a day through some rowdy countryside.

    @Chalfie is it actual Wayfair made/branded furniture? Or just something sold by them? I've bought quite a few bits and pieces from Wayfair over the years. I've largely been very happy with what I got given what I paid for it.

    I did have some delivery woes but I think its down to location (Scotland) more than anything.

    @not4sale I've not used it before but you might employ some wood hardener (snarf) if any of it is soft due to the dampness and you don't want to replace/repair.

    @frankohara I did something maybe similar. Be good to get a picture of the space you're working with - might get some better advice then

    @hugo7 are you taking the shed apart to move it? I need to relocate my shed and can't figure out whether to drag it, or take it apart and rebuild it.
