  1. Hi all, I'm struggling to get this blooming thing re calibrated after cocking about with the other cameras recently. Question I have is, for the initial part of the calibration is it better to be driving the car or stationary? I've also lost the road speed limits as well so am guessing they will all come back once sorted. Just want an idea on the best way to re calibrate from someone who may have already done it using ISTA? Thanks in advance.

  3. Looking to buy a f01 740d

    Interesting thread that Robsey29. That sprocket design I never knew about. My car has been serviced according to the CBS intervals up to 58k which is when I bought it although that has changed to every 10k now its in my hands. God knows if that will make a difference in the long term. I do plan on keeping the car forever (he says)...

    66k now Enda from endtuning.com did my remap and EGR disable...

    I've got the tools so I may as well use them plus I'll learn a thing or two. Hopefully I won't cock it up and brick my unit, but I have coded the car previously so am confident in my ability

  7. Idrive saying oil level is high

    But if it ever does rise again (according to the dipstick) of its own accord, it could be a sign of failed DPF regens whereby diesel is being dumped in to the sump which inevitably could lead to a runaway engine. Something to wary about so check your level often
  8. Looking to buy a f01 740d

    I have a 2011 model and I think the facelift model came out in 2012...FSH, 1 owner etc applied in my case. Timing chains, again I don't think are much of an issue on these engines but I'm sure there will be someone who has more information than me. Cracking car to drive and if you remap like I have you'll be running around 350bhp which is even better P.S - make sure all of the gizmo's e.g. cameras, HUD work as normal....Good luck!

    Many thanks to Matthew Ashton. I just need to find a set of reliable instructions on how to generate my FSC code using either Dr Gini or Esys. Any links would be greatly appreciated

    Any idea of where to get the latest maps from as I have Dr Gini and would do it manually?

    I ignored the ISTA message too but was convinced after seeing 12.7V via the hidden menu that all is not right.

    I think it will be the bushes first, I think my alternator is a valeo. anyone know a reputable place to buy from before I google...
  13. Side View Camera Failure

    Started her up this morning and all good, no errors and all cameras working. Think I got lucky this time and will be extra careful with the jet wash next time, in fact I'll probably use a watering can for those sensitive areas going forward....
  14. Side View Camera Failure

    Hair dryer on the wing mirror camera has brought it back to life in terms of getting a normal picture but I still have the bongs going off for the rear and side view cameras even though they are all working fine. I'll have to run through the initialisation process over the weekend using ISTA which I hope will resolve it once and for all....

    Hmm, thanks for the replies....I'll look up a few videos on what and how to etc and decide how soon to tackle it.
