    Help with E61 air suspension

    So i'm guessing the compressor was running while the drain valve was open otherwise the back of your car would be looking dragster-ish. My control unit failed after it got soaked by wet bags of ballast in the back and pumped the suspension right up but the compressor did not continuously run.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Both.. Although I don't keep my MOT man in my shed next to my DPF
  3. You could always throw some odour eaters in there, they use activated charcoal although they couldn't help my feet

    BMW Electrical Recall

    So now according to watchdog they're catching fire in a similar fashion to the VX Zafira's (heater resistors)

    Conflicted about engine oil

    Castrol Edge or Mobil 1... Seems to be the recommended as they need to be DPF friendly.. As i have no DPF i use any decent BMW recommended LL04 grade 5w-30 i can find.. Last time was Tesco

    BMW Electrical Recall

    Oh yeah i forgot it was a 320D .. You never know it still might make the national speed limit if the road is downhill with a tailwind

    BMW Electrical Recall

    You need to test it to make sure it won't cut out at high speed.. Maybe get BMW to remove the limiter just to be sure

    Common E60 air conditioning problems ?

    So is this another garage breaking the law, did they recharge a system knowing it had a leak. Or did they charge it without testing..

    Buying part worn tyres

    I used to buy them all the time when i had my old Renault until one de-laminated completely around the circumference on the M25, the car was shaking like the wheel was about to fall off. It was dark so i ran my hands around the tyres because there was nothing visible from the outside with my torch and almost got impaled with the wire sticking out..
