  2. Hi, i don't have a 5series this is why i had to ask you for support. All my questions are about the radio controlled clock one can also find in the e38. My question is if the RCC can be retrofitted in ALL e39? so prefacelift/facelift, low BC or high BC. I think that they need the NCS Expert coding option "RCC_UHR" what is only present from KMB CodierIndex 06. I have no clue from what model year C06 has been installed. but i guess the last facelift models... low BC or high BC i don't know. Please help me my goal is to know the kbus or hopefully the ibus message to get the RCC to send the time and to set it in my e46 cluster.
  3. Because of the low value of the pound? ;) We are still in the EU. What happens after? IIRC, there used to be some odd taxes about. Like luxury tax on fridges and washing machines. Taxing by value makes a lot more sense. But what does it matter if it is purchase tax or VAT? It goes back to our government's coffers, not the EU BTW. It was Liam Fox who said securing a UK-EU free trade deal would be 'one of the easiest in history'
  4. Just check the part numbers on Realoem.com and you will find they are identical F11/F10
  5. I am not worried about that at the moment because exports have boomed by 5.8% (IIRC) since the vote
  6. Therefore is this scaremongering, half-truths, or a lack of knowledge before we joint the EEC? Before VAT we had purchasing tax (not sure but the EEC may have requested us to change). When we first joint the EEC domestic goods increased in the UK and until CAP subsidies levelled itself out. During the transition of joining with the EEC one of the reasons why goods increased is because we stop importing sugar and some other goods for protectionism of EEC. Sugar was cheaper outside of the EEC, but due to EU protectionism it costs more to produce and more waste - the consumer in the UK pays more for sugar. I am aware that VAT is not on milk, however VAT has increased since joining EEC and where does some of this taxation goes to - subsidising the EU. Therefore we brought goods outside of the EEC before 1973 which were cheaper without a subsidy
  7. That's the Vanos oil pressure precharge pump. It was retrofitted by Dealers to cars that had a complaint of Vanos rattle when starting. It primes and pressures up the Vanos before the engine is started. It was only fitted for a few months before BMW then started fitting a pressure accumulator with an electric pressure valve. You won't find much info because the service bulletin was superseded by this one:- https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-m5-lim/repair-manuals/11-engine/2SkhrdG
  8. Today
  9. Thank-you very much for telling me.
  10. The 530d is far superior in all those metrics. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I know it isn't a complete lie because I read it myself I just can't remember which member of the cabinet said it. I just thought he was oversimplifying the process to make Mr Davis look foolish. Yes, we can import cheap stuff from whoever we would like to. What is much more important is who will buy the products and services we want to export.
  12. Police closed the case a few days ago - " unless new evidence comes to light," Registration number will be on the ANPR system for the next 12 months, I had to sign an authorisation form allowing the police to request BMW Munich to " send a signal to try and locate the car. " As that took a few days , i suspect the car's long gone. Dont think I will replace with like until BMW sorts the security issues out,
  13. Oh - I can afford a quicker BMW, if we're just showing off. I prefer the torque, reliability and comfort of the 520d. Cheers.

  15. Hello...
  16. Some perspective: I have a 520 ED. 184bhp. Sport mode. No problem with power. Why anyone would buy a 530d beats me: yes, you get extra power, but it's a 5-series, not an M3. Also - I pay £30 p.a. road tax, and get 55+ mpg daily.
  17. You are missing the point by a country mile. No pun intended. In fact, I am arguing what is actually a pro-Brexit case. We need to support our own industries and I count farming among them. Given the choice of £1 a litre for UK milk and 50p for imported milk, I think I know which one buyers will chose. And who makes the profit
  18. Hello. And such like.
  19. MY G30 530i disappeared off my drive three weks ago. Get a steering lock at least or lock it in a garage. Very high risk in LONDON. BMW in denial.
  20. That is bad news, having it stolen like that. Have the Police been any use in trying to recover it? I had heard how new bmws are stolen unless the car keys are contained in a metal box or are far enough away from the car so that signal between the two cannot be intercepted........ bring back a normal key I say! These new type of transmitter keys appear to be very vulnerable. Hope your car gets found soon.
  21. er, sadly not - I need to replace my passenger side one, and it looks like I need to remove the bottom shield
  22. Just wanted to say a massive thanks to the this topman for helping sort out my e61 sell leveling system it is now now more and I have coilovers fitted on the rear and it drives perfect Sent from my HUAWEI VNS-L31 using Tapatalk

  24. This sounds like no fun for the dog or for you. My sister's Labrador retriever had a number of health problems which were attributed to a diet that was too high in protein. Long story short, she bought this book and adapted the dog's diet and it solved the problem. Worth a read perhaps?
