    E60 545i AC Schnitzer
  1. Going to have to give it a miss I'm afraid. Outbreak of the runs in the household. Not personally affected yet, so on nursing duties.
  2. And me!
  3. Never been to a meet before, but I am in Barnsley and would be interested, if that's ok
  4. Hi, only just seen this. Welcome to 545i ownership. There aren't many of us in the UK. Only around 400 ever registered and only just over 300 currently on UK roads.
  5. Keep me posted!
  6. You could be right. That's why I was reluctant to try it
  7. If you look there appears to be some room for adjustment as there are different slots to locate the big spring. I have a similar problem as I have a small Schnitzer boot spoiler which seems to have upset the balance of the boot. However, I have not yet made an attempt to do anything as I am unsure if it will work. Perhaps someone else will see this and enlighten us?
  8. I changed one on a 530d without removing manifold. Tricky, but do-able. Plenty of videos on You tube. However if you are having glow plugs changed would be easier to let them do it as they will have to remove manifold to access glow plugs anyway.
  9. Hi. If it was not specified as an option from new it won't be installed
  10. Sometimes affects rear number plate lights as well. Happens on lci as well
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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
