  3. Swirl Flaps - Prevention vs Performance

    I took them out of my 525d. I couldn't be arsed taking them out of my 530d. I took it from 187k to 225k then it ate one. Scrap. I wish I had taken them out. They are out of current 530d.

  5. 530d Starting Issue

    I bought 530d with new battery and alternator, supposedly. After a few months got all the stupid dash messages, plus if I left the doors or boot open for 1/2 hr it wouldn't start. Put meter on cigar socket and saw that it sometimes didn't charge for 10m then 15-16v. Seems the new alt was just a paint up with new brushes. Replaced reg and solved charge problem, easy job with alt in situ. However I think the 8month old battery was toast from going flat and getting roasted. Replacement and now all good. Tried disconnect of ibs, didn't help.
  6. New Tyres and handling feels naff

    I used two sets of acceleration on omega wagon with 130bhp and thought they were fine. But on e39 525d they were so dangerous I was afraid to let wife drive cos of the back letting go. They are only useful in the dry.
  7. Has anyone used one of these??

    What is it? Aux?
  8. Blower motor replacement

    I think you can reach in from under the pollen filter! Spin it around and soak with wd40.
  9. Cd changer or media player

    I'm in Dublin.
  10. Cd changer or media player

    Does gateway do Bluetooth phone as well? Factory Bluetooth is very erratic with Sony phone!
  11. Cd changer or media player

    So is the audio on the optic loop and the wires on the connector are 0-12V. Now that cd's are almost extinct what would I expect to pay for a cd changer? or a better suggestion! Annoying , coming from an E39 which had a kenwoood that did everything.
  12. Cd changer or media player

    This is in the glove box with cd written on connection, but only two wires, red, brown. Can't see audio or fibre. Is the cd o/p analogue or optical?
  13. Cd changer or media player

    Thanks, I'll look in glovebox, I presumed it was in the boot.
  14. My vin says cd changer preparation but nothing on idrive menu, is this the audio connection and fibre optic in the boot? Do I need to enable? With inpa?
