Re: heavy fan noise while charging

Me too. The leaking condenser was diagnosed last summer. My car only had 14.334 km at the time but it was out of warranty (late 2014 model). There was no indication of any external damage (stone chip etc.) on the condenser but BMW AG in M√ľnchen did not accept my goodwill request. I exchanged quite a...

Installation of an auxiliary heater to improve electric range

We've had a fairly cold winter this year in Finland. Even in the southern part of our country the temperature has occasionally been -25 deg Celsius. This has resulted in clearly reduced range and I found myself putting more clothes on when trying to minimize the need for the electric heating. I fina...

Re: Adding subwoofer to a base non-HK system?

I have a non-HK system. It didn't sound good at all and I decided to improve the set up a bit. Since the space is limited and I only wanted to have a decent bass I ended up with a small Pioneer active subwoofer. I placed it under the dash and took the signal from the speaker lines.
