    Hi fellie, not got an answer about the snooper I'm afraid.

    Just wondering if your the same Fellie from the 5 series forum that has a thing for Orange indies?

    Yeah the sig did give me a clue.

    I put silver indies in the vectra but it still has a slight fried egg effect, different light cluster design I guess.

    I used to have a 528i before the Vectra, you may remember I had to have the engine replaced due to Nikasil and it started to show signs of other troubles (which I know is rare for a 5 series) so I decided to cut my losses and get a newer car with a warranty.

    I still miss the 5 series... alot...

    I have the chance of getting a brand new 525d Tourer through my brother but only for 18months and I'd loose my insurance NCB (9 years), so decided its not worth it.

    You still got you BM??

    not now tho, 22 mpg on lincolnshires roads was madness, and it didnt fit down some of them lol..

    had a mundano for 11 months,then this vec sri, its kind of somewhere between the mundano and the 5 I think

    well I been 'fiddlin' and setting it up for an hour ... seems a good gadget

    bit miffed at the free updates thing ..
    2 get the cameras activated / updated on the syrius, you need to register, to register you have to select the 99.99 lifetime or 4.95 payment ..
    2 get the updates for free, its a mail in form ( and old unit ), and 'then' you can activate and update the cameras .. one working day they reckon ....

    so I had to pay the 99.99, which will be credited back to me when they receive the form , note added to form on the snooper birds say so you see...
    I can see it not gettin refunded / hassle getting it back etc, we shall see ..

    ( i need the cameras asap ya see, goin away on sunday, no pc access for 3 weeks . )

    but, it does seem a good sat nav unit even compared to the tom tom 5 on a pda I had prior to this ( pda is fubar )

    oh, I just saw how much the B2 still costs.. might be worth getting it on the 280 deal I have then ( its 20 more than a standalone syrius.. ), and ebaying the B2 mate
