    E60 545i AC Schnitzer
  1. Hi. If it was not specified as an option from new it won't be installed
  2. Sometimes affects rear number plate lights as well. Happens on lci as well
  3. Hi, yes I have had this done on my 545i. Only a week ago, but so far ok. Depends on which car you have. I had a full remap, but apparently on some cars it is possible to just remove the SAI, i.e. tell it to ignore the system.
  4. I used Terraclean. They are a nationwide franchise. Google for one local to you. Sorted out my 156,000 mile, 2008 530d which no one else could do. Get fault codes read though, as a faulty glow plug controller or any faulty glow plugs will prevent DPF regeneration. I only had the car for another 1000 miles before I sold it, but was fine up to then
  5. Thanks guessed it was something like that but couldn't work out where it was. Shame it didn't have new water pump at same time then I wouldn't have had to buy one!
  6. Hi. Does anyone know what this might be? It was fitted to my 545i in 2016 by previous owner. I have searched real OEM without success. B64.11.6.906.652 Description 732403/WATER VAL Price 116.35 including vat. Thanks
  7. Oh dear! Hopefully my experience might help other forum members in future
  8. Seems very likely that was the problem then
  9. UPDATE. Changed CCV valves although they were not visibly damaged. No improvement. Had codes read and found fault on secondary air system and misfire number 3 cylinder. Was advised to use V power and to get a carbon clean (search on Facebook) as may be due to carbon build-up. I have had this car about 6 weeks and prior to that it had only done 6,000 miles over 2 years, so relatively little use . Had |carbon clean done yesterday and feels like I have new engine! Still occasional misfire when on tick over, but otherwise sorted. Fault codes cleared and so far have remained clear. Cost £99 and worth every penny. They come to you at place of work or at home.The basic principle is hydrogen pumped in through air intake which causes carbon to burn off at atomic level. Worked a treat!
  10. First time I tried was ok, but tried since and they won't work. Keep trying to get me to download apps from App Store
  11. Hi. No noises like that, just rough idle. Interesting stuff. Has more or less behaved today. Will let you know what happens when parts arrive.
  12. They're the ones I have on order. All settled overnight. Light gone off. Strongly suspect these now
  13. Hi. Think you mean crank case ventilation valves, which I have on order. Easy DIY so hopefully will sort it
  14. Can I get software/cable or whatever to do this myself?
  15. Unfortunately not
