Yeah they have loads of ex police morons telling you stats like you’re only 32% likely to kill someone if you hit them at 30mph but if you hit them at 33 it’s a wrap.

Not being funny but if you have no points then just take the three points on the chin as it's the longest four hours of your life. Two thick, self righteous ex plod boring you to sleep & the room is split 50/50 between white van man/long distance lorry drivers who argue the toss for the full session, dragging it out and the rest are absolute melts.

Exactly this. Worse few hours of my life. Take the points if you've got a clean licence. 3 makes fuck all difference to insurance.

Laughing out loud This is so spot on.

But just zone out for a few hours and save those 3 points for when you really feel the need.

The need. For speed.

I have a 3 series touring 2017, is there a way to retro fit Apple CarPlay? Bmw connect says it’s not available for my car online.
