    Winter Wheels - 6GT

    Thank you for the quote but I won't be going forward with the wheels. The lead time is too long (or I've just left it too late!). Kind regards, Matthew

    F10 535d

    The 535D is a variation of the N57 3.0d engine which is proving to be very robust.

    Europe Next-2019-1

    Europe NEXT 2019-1 is available but maybe not on BMW’s autonupdate site. If you have the ability to generate your own FSC code I can help you with that version of the maps.

    Side View Camera Failure

    Yes, as @bmwf113.0d said if one camera is causing an electrical anomaly, the TRSVC module in the boot will throw errors for most if not all cameras even though they're working fine. With ISTA you can diagnose the module and see which camera is causing the fault.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    The plenum to which I refer is the one formed by the bulkhead acoustic panel and the bulkhead around the yellow grommet and not the one you've cleared. However, if the water is offside then it can't be the yellow grommet. But I'd check it anyway.
  8. This is an F11 so airsprings on the rear so no steel spring to snap. Check the anti roll bar bushes while your in there too.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    That much crud down by the hinge will surely point to the plenum blocking the waterway near the yellow grommet being blocked the same way.

    F11 glass tailgate slowwww...

    My documents were .pdf versions of the info in link you've found but from within ISTA, that was before newtis. I also never bothered addressing mine. I was happy to be in control of how far the window opened in case you used the remote button to open it when in a restricted height area, like the Eurotunnnel where the window will hit the ceiling.

    Parking car for 3 weeks. Any precautions?

    Don't do this. ^^^ It isn't good to leave the car without its battery connected for any length of time and it is unnecessary. And how would you lock and unlock the car? The car will be fine unless of course you are having battery issues which it sounds like you aren't. 2 years ago I left my then 6 year old F11 which was on its original battery in Longterm parking (outdoor) at Heathrow over Christmas for 3 weeks, got back to the car, started first time, released the electronic parking brake and off we drove. These cars have rear disc brakes so the likelihood of brakes not releasing is negligible. The only multistorey at Heathrow is for short term parking which I only use for week at a time business parking.

    Side View Camera Failure

    To diagnose the issue you'll need a copy of ISTA and an ENET cable. I've never used Carly but had excellent service from ISTA as you'd imagine with it being a BMW tool. If you are getting the Side View Camera failure it is almost guaranteed to be water ingress into the cable and failure is imminent. I know this from experience of my own F11 as you've seen in this thread.

    Side View Camera Failure

    The cameras are fixed focus so no adjustment possible. The blurry cameras will need replacing.

    Winter Wheels - 6GT

    YGood morning, I'm looking for a set of BMW style 647 winter wheels and tyres for YJ67YHK. Could you let me know if you are able to get hold of a set and if so what price please? Failing the 647s are there any other options? Thanks Matthew

    Farewell F11 Hello G32 6 Series

    I'm happy Dave. Dark colours aren't my first choice but in this case beggars can't be choosers and no way I would front the £75k it would have cost to spec it from new. The car is so quiet and comfortable I've made the right choice.
