    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    Most of the time I just switch it off and use my right foot instead

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    I had an initial problem with a duff alternator which killed my battery and IVM but apart from that its an epic car! Plenty of poke with a sweet V8 soundtrack to go with it and she handles quite well for 1650kg. Oil leaks can be a problem on the N62 but mine had been thoroughly gone through by the PO so I don't have any (at the mo ) A 650i was my first choice as they have a few more ponies and do slightly better on fuel, but they were none for sale within sensible distance and this one looked to good to miss. Edit It could do with an LSD as the traction is constantly working overtime even in the dry

    Here's my selection minus a 1990 318i which I don't have any pictures of. 1985 M535i dogleg manual with Recaros. Jazzy B owns this now. 1992 735i manual with Alpina goodies 1992 850i A with a lovely V12! My current 645ci with V8 goodness as standard

    To enclose or not to enclose?

    I find the 1:18 stuff fairly robust so that stays open on the shelf but the 1:43 stuff is in perspex boxes.

    E32 735i Manual £1995

    I had a manual a few years ago. Much better than the slushbox fitted to most of them. If it had been a V8 I'd still have it now!

    Delta Integrale

    ^ This. And what point did an Integrale become a 5 door saloon?

    E65 730D - New battery needed

    I replaced the Bosch one in my 645 with a Lucas LP019 (95AH) one from Advanced battery supplies on Ebay. £84 delivered.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Mine charges at roughly that too. Did you get any codes relating to IBS?

    Audio keeps cutting out

    If it's just the sound issue you have then you might get away with replacing just the stereo unit. Any other problems with the display/satnav etc?

    Not got the paperwork to hand but it was in the region of £300. There is a guy on ebay that repairs them for £250 iirc but you will need to post it/drop it off to him.

    Sounds like it needs to come out and be repaired. Mine did this for the previous owner until it stopped working completely.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    I've just replaced my IVM which has cured the non start problem and made the gearbox shifts smoother too. Unfortunately it now throws a load of codes every time I start the engine (P0348,P0393,P0445, P2092, P2094) EDIT. Codes now gone thanks to, changing the fuses for new on the IVM module.

    IVM price

    Hi, Could I have a price for part number: 12527510638 please. It's for a 2004 645Ci. Cheers, Daz.

    ISM module

    I'm looking into getting mine repaired as I have had 2 non starts in the last 3 months. If the engine turns about half a turn and then stops, or you just get a click then it's likely to be the ISM. Apparently it can cause other issues too.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Mine gets the voltage warning every now and then due to it mostly doing short trips. If I take it for a decent run once a week it's usually ok. 12.12V is a bit low for an E60. They don't like it that low and will start to give random errors. Another fault to look out for is the IVM (integrated supply module) which can cause all sorts of electrical gremlins, including rough idle and shifting issues. It's under the cabin filter housing on the passenger side.
