  3. Booked my E60 535d in for a gearbox serivce, I had a gearbox service done on my e39 which was hot oil flush, new filter, gasket and new oil obv think it cost around 250 on the e39 few years ago but the E60 just because its 6 speed its going to cost me 410 quid thats new plastic sump with built in filter hot oil flush new oil and a new rubber boot sleeve Garage said i dont need to change the rubber boot sleeve only if its leaking but as im going to keeep the car im having that changed even if its not leaking. How much have yous paid for your gearbox service ?

  11. Hello I've purchases a inpa dis complete software = cable using INPA plugged it in had 7 errors 6 of the errors were for all the glowplugs had cleared code but came back 1 error was the fuel filter heater, had cleared code but came so decided to change fuel filter along with heater cost 200 quid from bmw changed myself. Car runs perfect both thermostats have been changed temps around street via hidden menu 90 - 92 temps on motorway 90- 93 Felt like car hadnt regenerated the dpf in a while so started up DIS as i read online you can force a DPF REGEN , Found out passenger side wing indicator is out, anyway .. When i clicked on DDE the 6 glowplugs errors came up cleared them came back again obv, i remember it saying something about performing a test on heater ecu it warms up glowplugs this test was done and failed obv plugs 123456 other menu i tried to force regen last time since regen was 20000 meters ago i then pressed enable regen request regen then it said in menu dpf regen requested in DDE thats it the revs didnt go up, went on hour drive without using cruise control still no rege, i thought if you force a regen using DIS it goes through a function test revs the car itself to 3k rpm to clear the shit out etc maybe i cannot force regen because of the glowplug errors? or can regen be FORCED using dis with glowplug errors ? Thanks

    E60 535D Gearbox Service

    Got the Gearbox service done then .. Gearbox Ecu Update Hot oil Flush New oil with New sump Pan filter New rubber Sleeve Before i got all this done the car 9/10 times when coming to a stop id get the gearbox push from 2nd gear to 1st gear only when coming to a stop, also sometimes doing cruise control on motorway steady speed say 70 the rev would sometimes move around. Since getting all that no more problems 2/nd gear to 1st gear stop no more thud, also the shifts are 100 times better also no more bouncy revs, the gearbox running so much smoother

    E60 SAT nav fixed

    Had problems with my sat nav, have got widscreen professional was'nt reading discs anymore so i replaced the dvd unit which i bought from bmw, started to read the gps disc now, but was showing my current location is in the Irish sea, replaced the gps antenna which is located under the sharkfin on the roof, sharkfin is stuck on with black resin, After all that my location was still showing wrong but not in the irish sea anymore .... This was really bugging me so spoke to a company called revtronic from Bradford (highly recommend them ) they told me that my problem was likely to be the ''gps tuner board' on the actual ccc unit itself so booked the car in.. Problem fixed they took about 45 mins, while i was there i got aux installed & coded auto mirrors v = digital speed display mp3 unlock I still cant seem to play mp3 cds ... ?
