    BMW Oil Leak

    Could be the inlet manifold gasket themselves as if it was coming from the flap seals themselves (which is common if the originals have been left in as you said) then the leak tends to seep downwards onto the main block etc...In the pics the leak seems to be further away from the engine block seals themselves. If you're 100% certain that it is coming from the swirl flap seals and that they are the original ones then i would buy some blanks (got mine 3-4 years ago and fitted to my old 5 which is still in the family) from PMW and no problems since. EDIT - Leak looks like its coming from the dipstick tube?. I would clean it all of using gunk or something and a jet wash and then re check.

    Retro Fitting Paddle Shifters

    Ha, no worries... I now believe that it would be easier to buy a steering wheel with the paddles already fitted. So, my next question is, would an F10 steering wheel fit on a F01??
  3. Re posted here in the hope of getting a reply or two Is it possible to retro fit paddle shifts as a plug and play option or would i need to cut holes etc? I'm aware that there would be some coding needed but I'm confident in completing that as have Esys already. I'm more worried about the fact that I'd have to do some cutting and rewiring etc?? Car is a 2011 740d MSport Pre LCI and has lane departure warning with the vibrating steering wheel.

  5. Soot on the inside of your tailpipes = No DPF imo and you should hear light burble under idle...If you do get round to physically looking at it, any outside (non manufacture related) welding will tell you that it has been opened up and the DPF brick probably removed. If you do remove it, note that at the front of the DPF canister (side nearest the turbo) it may have the CAT brick still in it, possibly. I only say that as i had my CAT left in when i did my 5 back in the day. Edit - Simple test would be to high rev it and if there is any smoke, then you have no DPF

    BMW 2006 E60 530D Stopped in water help!!!

    Disconnect your IBS sensor and give it a try. It's the secondary thinner cable that comes off one of the battery connections. It will have a squarish clip part way up.

    Torque converter

    Anybody know of a good TC specialist in the Midlands? My 7 has the revs jump slightly when cold from startup first thing, it also has that bumpy road feeling when cruise control is set at 50mph from cold. All fine when warm though.

    Chrome Window Exterior Trim Rejuvenation?

    Autosol polish is what I use and does the job nicely.

    Limp mode, here are the codes.

    Ok, but did it drive any better with the MAF unplugged?

    Replacing MAF, coding/resetting

    I am under the impression that you can't reset the adaptations using INPA. I only say that as I never found the option to do so when I had my E60. I used DIS to do all that kind of stuff.

    Limp mode, here are the codes.

    Have you tried running it with the MAF disconnected? I know you've replaced it but it's worth a try.

    What shocks?

    I bought some bilstien front m sport shocks back in the day for mine. It was an E60 though but they were absolutely fine.

    6 CD changer clunking

    No Bluetooth and it's the type that fits in the glovebox and not the boot. I'd be interested if it's the right type blobby.
