    What do you all get on full tank?

    I get about 600-650 miles to a full tank in my n57 (mapped to about 280bhp). Manual box and mixed driving. Over the past 40k miles I’ve averaged 39mpg

    Winter Tyres ?

    I’ve just put my winters on, Dunlop’s in 225/55/17. A little noisier than my summers but improved grip when cold

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    The e39 wood trim is a vaneer. I don’t have an issue with metal trims I just prefer the wood look - to me the metal looks a bit ‘Vauxhall’

    Finally found a set of wood trim to replace the hex aluminum much to most people's disgust! I am old before my time and thinks it looks nice.

    The cheap E60 winter car.

    Looks like a decent car, or will be when you’ve finished!

    Android 7.1 10.25" screen

    Your controller and display look identical to my CIC (2011 f11)
  10. 2011 525d f11. 78k miles. I’ve had dmf and clutch, 6 glow plugs and controller, egr, 2 airbags. I no longer have a warranty as they were making claims difficult and it was such a pain in the arse each time there was an issue. I plan to keep mine indefinitely due to the plummeting diesel values. I’ve owned it since 2016 and purchased with 40k miles.

    Yeah I replaced mine a couple of months back (36mm 2 part items) they are defo sided.
  12. Do you still have these? What’s your best price for collection?

    Parts price request

    61119129360 - coax fakra wire for usb 84109237653 - USB/Aux socket Thank you
  14. Are these still available?
  15. I have the same engine/brakes as yourself (3.0 525d) and ordered genuine parts from costswolds on this forum when changing the discs and pads. They worked out slightly more expensive than euro car parts for brembo.

    HI, not quite new!

    nice looking E61 you have there and a rare combo of engine/gearbox/spec!
  17. I use grosvenor in Caversham and have recently had a service done there too, they actually told me certain things I had asked to be replaced didnt need doing and were very honest. They cleaned it really well and charged a great deal less than main dealers. They had a very long chat with me when I dropped the car off about my F11 & E39 and seem really interested in what they do. Highly recommended

    Clutch and dmf

    My 525d (3.0) had a DMF and clutch at BMW due to juddering, all sorted under warranty - I was told the job would have been over £3000 if I was paying?! Seems madness

    F11 Speaker Upgrade

    A simple bass blocker will suffice to add in before the mids in the door, I did this and can be had for about 5 quid, it stops them distorting at higher volumes

    poor fuel economy

    Ah yes, I see your point. Maybe worth another attempt! I had this done on my car a few months back and made a big difference.. http://www.enginecarbonclean.com/

    poor fuel economy

    yes, 38 mpg on a run is terrible for a 520d, my 3.0d can quite comfortably get 50mpg on a run. Id get a specialist to take a look if you aren't handy with codes/spanners

    Front discs and pads

    Can I have a price for front discs and pads + sensor for my F11 525d (3.0) please - chassis no c598820 - i believe there are a couple of disc sizes available for the 3 litre cars?
  23. paperjams

    Front discs and pads

    Can I re-check the prices and go ahead with this please, they lasted much longer than expected!
  24. paperjams

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Mine say 1400 Miles, they are the original discs and pads with 72k miles! They said 3000 miles to go 17k miles ago!
