    Delta Integrale

    Beautiful car.. I've owned a couple of Beta HPE's in the past and ignoring the tin foil metal thickness I loved them, they also had a Lancia interior before Fiat made them use theirs.. But £1m I think is taking the piss, be interesting to see if someone buys it.. Shame the seller didn't have the 'Make offer' option

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I replaced mine the other day as i managed to kill the old LED bulb electronics. I forgot to fit the resistor to stop it bringing up the bulb fault which BTW comes up randomly, like midway a 2 hour journey . I'm gonna have to remember how to code the checks out
  4. A few times I've let drivers out of junctions or had to give way to them as they came towards me and then i see they're on their phone.. I go from mellow to fuming, but driving the company van i have to bite my tongue.

    E60 CCC Android system upgrade

    Misterbish Is the unit still working ok
  10. Get yourself a couple of 5 gallon jerry cans and syphon it all out and fill with diesel.. As long as you don't start it with that much petrol you'll be ok.. Modern Fords have no fuel cap and just a dust cover which exposes a metal flap which only a diesel pump can open.. I tried pushing the flap open and it won't go, it's quite deceiving because you think the diesel pump nozzle is too big for the hole

    Oily intercooler pipe

    The oil is from the engine breather, the big issue with vortex version of engine breathers. Dropped my engine cover yesterday and the intercooler pipes are all nice and oily too.. It's always like that. I need to find a better way of connecting the pipework... i did try new seals about 5 years ago but that didn't work

    Disc thickness

    I've tried searching for it and gave up.. Who know what the minimum disc thickness is for the OEM front discs on a LCI 535d e61 Thanks in advance

    Soft close door problem.

    Could it be just the motor is tired, brushes worn etc..?

    Disc thickness

    Thanks for the replies guys. It is amazing how such little wear 0.8mm per surface constitutes the disc as worn out.. Looking at mine on the weekend i would have said they were no where near looking close to replacement when you see the new 525d disc above is only 30mm to start with. Thanks for the tip Andrew

    Disc thickness

    Cheers folks.. Measuring mine they are around 34mm, which is slightly less then 34.4mm, so i'm guessing it was 36mm new. I did have to file the lip off the edge because my micrometer only goes up to 25mm, so i had use a vernier calliper to measure it.. There's still quite a bit of meat on the pads still 5-6mm and the sensor hasn't flagged up yet. So i'll wait another year (1500 miles) and look again..

    Recommend a DAB radio for the kitchen?

    I've had DAB in a hire vans and to be frank i think the whole system is shit.. I listen to Sussex Heart radio in the morning because the presenters crack me up.. My normal FM radio is happy to go from Tunbridge Wells to Brighton to Hastings without any issues.. DAB constantly cuts out and disappears and this has happened on Transits and Renault Traffic's so it's not the setup. Yes when it's working it's beautifully sharp and clear but 50% of the time it doesn't work at all

    Recommend a DAB radio for the kitchen?

    There's quite a choice at Argos.. Also some reviews which might help. We bought the cheapest (not sold by Argos anymore) one a few years ago for music for the dog while we're out and it has plenty of volume and clear sound. http://www.argos.co.uk/search/dab/opt/sort:price/

    Bloody women drivers!

    Should have seen the stick this PC woman was giving this article of Serena Williams on BBC news this morning.. As soon as the image came up I nearly spilt me coffee over my nuts i was laughing so hard

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Leave the bolt off and rely on the wheel to hold the disc in place.. Although you need to be an octopus when getting the wheel back on
