    Faulty infotainment system

    How often is it doing it? Every time you use the car or just from time to time? A lad at work had his replaced under warranty, I think his was doing it pretty much all the time.

    Door puddle lights.

    Mine are off when driving.

    F10 rear door water leak?

    Membrane is intact, but is it fully sealed all the way round? Mine had come away from the door only in a very small strip. I heated the sealant with a hot air gun until it became sticky and it's sealed again well for now although I'm expecting to need to replace it before long.

    F10 535d

    Had my f11 535d for 18 months now and it still makes me smile. A great all round car.

    Door puddle lights.

    I'm 99% sure mine don't light up like you describe. I finish work in an hour so will check when I leave.

    Service Warning

    That's not actually true. If you look in service requirements it also gives you a date for oil, it's mileage based or 2 years after last time whichever comes soonest.

    Hi, can I have a price for a front offside brake caliper for a 2006 e86 z4 please.

    Winter Tyres ?

    Dunlop sport 3d. Not fitted this year yet.

    Sat nav maps

    Is it possible to update the maps on these hard disc based systems? If so where's the best place to buy? Mine is a 2013 pre lci car with pro nav, but I find it is struggling with a lot of postcodes that it really shouldn't.
  11. Where did you get the splined ones from? I have those on my z4 and much prefer them to those on my f11. The z4 ones are m12 though, do bmw sell them in an m14 fitting too?

    Your day to day mode?

    Seems to be at a standstill more often than not these days, usually backed up after yet another accident in the roadworks around junction 9.
  13. Mine are stacked too. Going to make a wheeled trolley to make moving them easier. Also still haven't cleaned them since taking them off yet, must get round to it but still a few weeks before they'll be fitted.

    Winter tyres - it's that time of year!

    I bought a set of wheels and Dunlop 3d winter tyres last year for my f11. Didn't particularly need them last winter, but as I'd only bought the car that year and intend to keep it for a good while I decided I'm better off getting them at the beginning of my ownership rather than wait for a bad winter. On the way to work one day a 1 series got stuck in front of me and a couple of blokes had to give it a push, they kindly waited to help me but it wasn't need as I drove straight through without even slip of the wheel.
  15. Have a look on the tyre pressure data inside one of the door shuts, it'll tell you the recommended size for winters on there. I use 245/45/18 on mine.

    Sat nav maps

    Which nav would I have in a 2013? Think buying it from bmw sounds the best option, £70ish for 2 years doesn't sound bad value either surprisingly.

    front brake pad service indicator

    Bmw charge £199 for pads, sensor and fitting for a comparison.

    520d tyres

    The bolts are a different size, they're m12 on the z4.

    520d tyres

    That's good then, thought I'd mention it as hate for you to find out when you actually needed it.
  20. Is that usual mileage for you, or an unusual period? I did that mileage in 3 days last week! Managed 49.6mpg on one 150 mile journey, not bad for what must be close on to 2 tonnes loaded up with apparently child essentials!

    520d tyres

    Have you actually tried fitting it to your 5 series? I only ask as the wheel bolts on the 5 are a larger diameter to those on the z4.

    F10 door corrosion

    Had some paintwork done on my z4 coupe a couple of years ago, it was 10 years old at the time, never any issue with then doing it under warranty, however it did take the best part of a year for them to actually get the paperwork accepted. They even phoned me after doing the work asking for some details as bmw were being funny about paying them.

    Pad Life

    Mine had pads front and rear at 36600 miles according to the paperwork I have. It's now done 62k and idrive reckons the fronts have 60 to go and the rears 49!
  24. I fitted non runflats to my z4 whilst it was still under auc warranty and it is still covered by the extended warranty. Never even been mentioned by the dealers.

    F11 centre console ashtray

    Hi, can I have a price for the f11 ash tray, the smaller one by the idrive controller. I believe the part number to be 51169206347. Am I right in thinking that it comes as a complete unit with lid, but without the wooden trim?
