    Is It Just Me?

    The e39 took a couple of minutes to swap the two wires round, a few people on here did it for just that reason. Doubt its so quite so easy on the G!

    ISTA and DPF Regen History - SOLVED

    Soot is whats burned off with each regen cycle, ash is the underlying "build up" that will eventually kill a dpf assuming its regen operates as it goes. Ive seen another post where a 35d needed a new dpf at 57g of ash. Your next regen should start with mid-high twenties soot.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    Just to point out, access is much easier from the top if you have the 3 litre diesel.

    New 520D - max £40k

    High beam assist out for me. On other cars for me its more of a hindrance than a help and with xenons probably even worse - mine used to turn down late and annoy other drivers or reflect off road signs and turn themselves down, and that was just with halogens! I'd prefer factory tinted glass but a decent tint place i used did a really good job aftermarket with no complaints from me plus you can always choose a slightly darker tint for the rear screen if you prefer. Saving on road tax will pay for it in one year. Id be looking at a way to add the advanced audio or HK if possible, and folding rear seats adds a massive practicality boost i couldn't do without.

    Spotify Issue

    If mine works its within 5-10secs, i get the "addition apps" item followed by Spotify logo in the menu. If it doesn't work it just tries to reload apps all journey in the background. Often seeems to be if there's an update for the iPhone or Spotify app it wont connect until you've actioned it. Sound quality with the HK when connected via usb is awesome though. Recently enabled video in motion and the audio on some DVDs is pretty good too. Makes waiting around for small people a much better experience!

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    A few quid more than a decent indy but cheaper than Halliwell Jones who wanted £99! Just check your locking wheel nut, thats another £20 to replace, mine disappeared while at the local $tealer but realised months later- quite tricky to argue.

    Spotify Issue

    I meant with Android! Iphone 5 onward should be fine with any BMW Apps enabled car, although mine still likes to refuse to connect some dsys. Others its fine.

    Spotify Issue

    Afraid buying an iphone is your only choice. Android Spotify simply doesnt work unless you have a more recent version of BMW Apps, models since 2016 seem to be better (with Android)

    F11 auto transmission fluid change done.

    Ha ha, I'd love to have the strength to diy this but current medical issues won't allow. I definitely have an MEng, have had hands very dirty (more tea, vicar?) but have too much of an incline on the drive and peeps walking past with dogs off their leads, always a good combination with trays of transmission fluid! Good to see someone happy to attempt at home and be confident enough - just hope the oil spec is definitely ok. Got me thinking about getting a quote from a place nearby that has an excellent rep anyway.

    Garage turning off gps tracking

    Yes, but they could easily have said go and drive this for 15 mins and see if the boot opens to one of the service monkeys, and he probably would have done, quite happily.
