    That is a nice looking car! Decent price too.

    Welcome to the F11 club. given the price difference between petrol and diesel now (11p a litre) I would certainly consider a petrol car again.

    The cheap E60 winter car.

    Looks like it will be a decent car once it’s fixed up!

    Taxi from/to Glasgow Central station

    Probably just as easy to book an Uber taxi? Might be cheaper too. Otherwise any of the big private hire firms such as Hampden cars will be reasonably priced

    F10/F11 heating, or lack of!

    Tracked the water coolant temp this morning via the hidden menu and it reached 90 degrees in 14 mins of driving and stayed at that temp. So it isn’t the thermostat that is preventing cabin heat so back to the drawing board as to what is up with the heating system.......

    F10/F11 heating, or lack of!

    Thats the thing it never really heats up properly especially in my 20 odd min cross country drive to the park and ride I use. Also the centre dial only gives any heat at the max, any slight turn of the centre dial in the opposite direction just blasts out very cold air. Again I never had this problem with any e39 or e34........

    Sport Seats Uncomfortable

    I have this issue in my F11 M-Sport. I find the sports seats absolutely hellish on a longer drive say over 2 hours. Never had this issue on any previous BMW’s but this seat discomfort on the F11 is really annoying. I looked at an A6 avant before buying the F11 and more and more I think I bought the wrong car!!

    Thanks guys. I did think this wasn’t right. So will plan on getting the thermostat changed ASAP. Otherwise it’s going to be a cold and miserable car to drive through the winter.
  13. Looking for some pointers, had my 2013 F11 520d for about 7 weeks now. The weather has now got colder and the heating system is woeful. Even on max setting of 27 degrees, there is barely any heat. Also with the centre vent dial at the max red. Surely this cannot be correct? All my previous BMWs all had excellent heating systems in the winter. Are thermostats a common failure on the N47 2.0d? Hence the lack of heat. Or is it something else causing this?
