    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Above is how it has always been. As far as I can tell so far (unless someone can show me any different from the new Mot Manual) the "new mot" is no different for headlights / hid kits.
  3. Bear with me and don’t laugh. So car sits on 12k Miles, leather has faded above the volume buttons. I’m OCD about cleanliness and keeping car in top Knick so this is bothering me. Pic does not do it justice, looks far whiter in person and noticeable when driving. I don’t tend to put my thumbs/fingers here and use the grips and 10 and 2. i know steering wheel leather is of the higher quality hence more delicate grain. Anyone has any ideas how to cover this patch up? Car is in for a service next month - I could mention to dealer but I doubt they would entertain this or has someone ever encountered poor quality of leather on certain elements? suggestion? And please, for the love of everything don’t say reject. Any leather specialist out there?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    It's always nice when that happens.

    V8 Misfire

    Yes, the oil on the plugs can cause arcing and hence a misfire.

    Real world mpg and range

    5 weeks with my 530e, 2800 miles and averaging - 52.8mpg. It gets charged once a day. I’m still trying to maximize the electric range where possible but the kick down / eboost combo is getting called on more often on days out. My previous daily drive was a golf gtd and it’s was driven without care or thought to economy and returned 44mpg. So it seems for now that my hybridization is all for the good and I am a responsible motorist. !!

    I quite like the Nicolas Cage version too, not that I'm biased what with this doing the chasing;

    CCC Failure - options?

    Or just do nothing. I've been running without a working CCC for over 3 years now.

    CCC Failure - options?

    Replace it with a CIC
  11. I'm toying with the idea of buying a complete new hose assembly for this, as I have to replace both the waterpump and thermostat, and experience with the E39 suggests it's a sensible precaution to replace all the hoses anyway, so i might as well start now. If the engine was a petrol, I would have also considered moving to waterless coolant such as Evans Power Cool 180, but don't think it's worth the £200 or so to do the conversion.

    What's the dpf back pressure with C310? According to Carly it's 989mb!!!

    '05 525d No Power

    Haven’t already but I will next time I use it, was told by someone else to check the actuator moves when being revved and it doesn’t move. From memory of my old 318d i could hear the actuator moving when I unlocked the car, but today when opening the 525d I could hear a noise but not what I was used to from the old car. Fault codes picture will be attached too.

    Sun Roof - Refund Post - It Has Gone.....

    Gutted lads. I’m now going to have to work during the week rather than watch the thread. Did I mention I’ve got a problem with my pano roof? Dealers taking my car back and getting a refund. Just thought I should mention it in case there was any interest on the forum. Night night

    V8 Misfire

    The plug wells definitely have oil which is making its way up inside the rubber ignition coil extensions which fit between the plugs & coils - would this be likely to cause intermittent misfires?

    Sun Roof - Refund Post - It Has Gone.....

    I’m sure he’ll post lots and lots of pics of his new car that he will get with his £42k? You know, like he did with the G31....

    530i M Sport Techno Violet

    It's because wankers like that are 10 a penny He's listed it at lower end M5 money now Who then fuck is gonna pay that for a simple 530i; no matter what colour/spec, it's worth about £4k tops IMO; however with the work needed, more likely £3-£3.5k #howtobeaprick101

    Good job well done

    Real world mpg and range

    I've now managed to get to 31.3mpg despite selecting Sports Plus and letting it stretch its legs for the first time - 340 mile round trip yesterday averaged 34.6mpg actual (filled up just prior to departure and topped up again on return just to satisfy my curiosity) - the car said 34.7 so not too bad from an accuracy perspective.
