Are you serious? They post the right way up on my iPad, so why are you getting them upside down? I spend ages sorting our pics to post up.

There have been a few posts about photo orientation (on other boards too).

On my iPad, they're all the right way up - I think it auto-orientates them.

Upside down on my PC, as with quite a few other posts, and with the gear stick coming out where it is it took me a while to understand which way up it should be. There's been a lot of photo's upside down since this drag and drop change was made.

okay, I think I've turned them all round the right way for windows, if someone could confirm while I go and check the phpBB forums for a fix.

Thanks Jim! You're a hero! :D
I've booked a local windscreen guy to come and fit the heated screen tomorrow, it's a job I have done, hate, and seeing as it's more expensive than usual would rather not risk it. I got a new rubber from QRG somshoukd be ok. The guy has one to do in a triumph vitesse before me, so he knows his old tat. Pictures tomorrow to show progress....

Remember it's rubber to screen, then into the car, then the finishing strip on a 6 series. I know you won't be doing the job, but if it helps your screen stay in one piece..

Just in case anyone didn't see my other post on windscreens yesterday, the fitter came to fit the heated screen, but it all went a bit wrong as the heated one curves more on the bottom corners, it was just not going to go in properly with the new rubber. The old screen leaked like a sieve, and that did fit!
So having tried the screen in the hole without the rubber, it was actually quite a good fit, especially as it would be spaced out slightly on a foam 'bed' so the decision was made to bond it in with a plain rubber finishing strip that is bonded around the screen before bonding it into place. I'm pleased with the look, no bulging rubber and sticking out chrome strip, plus the wires are nicely bonded into place rather than looping through the rubber to cause yet another leak. Time will tell as to whether it's a good idea or not.. I've just got to think of a way to finish the inside now

Like your idea of a better flush type screen and those opening rear side windows 10/10
Those original screen rubbers do bulge out a bit .

Constructive crticism - not keen on the bonnet.
Can you slice the bonnet bulges and raise the rear portion an inch to vent
