You are funny! We have a three day weekend here in the states this weekend, but I will have to go into work tomorrow for a bit. If I have time over this long weekend I want to dig into this starting issue and see if it is a switch adjustment. It seems I never have enough time to get all the things done that need to be done. Although I love my BMW, I also like American Muscle cars. I have a 1998 Cobra Mustang convertable. This weekend I am scheduled to look at a 1971 429 Mustang MACH1 that is for sale!!!
I also checked out where in the UK Barnsley is located and you are a ways north. I was stationed at RAF Lakenheath many moons ago and use to go to Nottingham often and you are north of Nottingham. Happy driving my friend.
