You pulled the passenger door handle as many times as the digit. 3 sec pause between digits. You could reset the pin by doing it with the door open.
What's the default code?

Subaru had a thing where you entered a pin code by pulling the door handle. Not many owners know this though.
How does that work?

That is awesome. I now want a Subaru so I can be seen fondling the handle repeatedly in pub car parks, announcing to all and sundry that it’s a feature, and I’m not a door handle fetishist, honest. Please please please can someone with a Subaru with this feature bring it to the next barge meet? I’m willing to trade my 2nd-born and a big bag of peanut M&Ms.
Gonna have to try this on Mrs Krikkit's Outback, won't be until Friday mind!

Probably isn't one. You have to set it up before it works.

How old is your second born and will they fit up the average UK chimney? Asking for a friend who owns a Subaru.

Currently mid thread but Cat D with minor rear bumper and boot lid damage

Not just Cat D but Waitrose car park Cat D.
If this wasn't 600miles away...
What's that worth with the bodywork repaired (properly)?

It annoys me when people put "London" as the location, not just for cars, for anything. Some parts of "London" are less than 30 minutes from me, others are 2 hours, 3 on a bad traffic day.

I’m more interested in the M&Ms...just how big a bag?

I don’t actually have a first born, never mind a second - my nomadic work lifestyle isn’t conducive to raising ankle biters properly, as I’d never be home in normal times. As far as the M&M’s go, if I ever get back to my locker in Eindhoven, there’s 3x 1kg bags there, (not been there since August 2019, so they might be a bit out of date), I won “employee of the month” and got given a €50 voucher to spend, so bought a mini crane sweet grab thingy and lots of M&M’s to grab with it. If you’re going to have people come to your desk, you might as well send them away happy - many staff hours wasted that month as the grab action was pitiful to say the least. Hmm. I’m not really selling this, am I?

Nice little mini-barge 328i. Great straight six but lacking lord gears. Low miles though and looks clean as a whistle for £3.5k:

Lovely. Shows off the design so well in early SE spec.

Er...

It's a manual 3 Series. About as far from thread love, and barge-ism, as it's possible to get. And it's silver. And, and...

And I critique as a soon to be owner of a 3 Series.

At shed money I'd take it. At more-than Lexus money I think anyone that paid that would be a crazed loon, 6 cylinders or not.

The thread might not like it but plenty of folk are very keen on manual six pot 3'ers. I fear You'd be alarmed at some of the prices.

My z4 2.5 has convinced me (again) that the BMW straight 6 engines of the era are masterpieces, and the manual gearbox puts you in the conductors chair. I’m on the look out for a 3.0 6 speed at the moment. I’d like a go in that 328.

A reasonable service on the E55 yesterday.

A kind of good news, medium news type of service.

It was a big one (apparently). Plus he was looking at a few issues for me.
So I had seemingly slow punctures on all the tyres on the drivers side. The front one was a screw that could be fixed, the other was due to the paint/finish coming off on the rear.
Plus a rattle from the rear was just a heat shield.
All fixed...that's the good news.

The medium news was that I'm getting three intermittent faults, and obviously they all went MIA when he was looking.
One was a EML which is apparently linked to the secondary air pump, which has cleared itself. The second was an oil sensor....which is a good one, as it means you can't check the oil, as there's no dipstick.
And finally there's a suspension issue, which I think is a pump for the air suspension which flashes up occasionally.

It looks like I'm going to have to bend over and take one, and try and get it plugged into STAR.

Unless anyone in thread has access to one, or knows of one, vaguely in the South Yorkshire/North Derbyshire area.
