  1. Piper's E61 520d Touring

    Sounds good, bass is very deep. I turned the bass and volume right up and the speakers felt like they couldn't cope. Never heard the full L7 setup so can't compare, but it's good enough for me. Just adding tweeters to the doors and roof speakers would make a big difference, for much less than I paid. Probably could get the two sets of tweeters for around £50?
  2. Piper's E61 520d Touring

    Three E34s and numerous E39s later, I have finally moved on and have got myself an E60/E61. A 2008 black on black on black 520d Touring with a few nice options, but the best one is heated Comforts with ventilation £3800. Picking up Thursday. Pics to follow! Edit - pics below and they ain't Comforts
  3. Post Brexit Result

    Don't regret it, still think it's the right decision. Glad we can start negotiating trade but feel let down that it's now 2021 until we leave, just 3 more years for uncertainty
  4. Post Brexit Result

    Any other leavers else feeling frustrated and short changed this morning?
  5. BMW Car Mag - Why so BUSY?

    It was terrible towards the end
  6. Hate iTunes. I was one of those who ripped my CDs to iTunes then sold them on. Regret it and hate iTunes user interface
  7. BMW Car Mag - Why so BUSY?

    They've got to stand out on the shelf haven't they? Still a decent read, would like to see more projects from Andy. His tips page that was near the back of the mag seems to have changed.
  8. What engine you after?
  9. Had a meeting with a lampost
  10. My B47 520d can sound pretty rattily at idle, stuck a tank full of Murco Performance Diesel in and the difference in sound is extremely noticeable. Much quieter, feels smoother and MPG seems to have risen slightly. Impressed! Went for the nearish Murco because I'm always checking prices within a 20 mile radius using the Petrol Prices app, it turned out to be the cheapest so I took a detour on the way home from work. Paid only 126.7p a litre which I thought was cheap as chips for this kind of diesel.
  11. Here's a question - what happens if you have half a tank of 95 RON petrol and then fill the tank with 98 RON? Does the fuel still remain 95 RON?
  12. V Power. Yeah it deffo makes a difference. Apparently the petrol version can add power, the diesel doesn't, it just 'cleans'
  13. Full option 535d 2010

    Four levels, like the e60. Don't think team 2nd level on the e60 had an amp...
  14. Considering starting my new car search, either a F01 730d or an F10 or F11 520d. Why not a 530d you ask? Because for my commute, (60 mile motorway round trip five days a week) a 2.0 litre turbo diesel is all the car I need. If there was a 720d i'd buy it. Three must haves - heated comforts, individual audio, professional nav Would appreciate any links to matching cars for sale. What are your 3 must haves. Just 3!
  15. Full option 535d 2010

    How many audio options were there on the facelift F10
