  1. Intermittent loss of brake servo

    This is the reply I got from BMW after enquiry about the recall. Doesn’t make sense Thanks for your email about outstanding recalls or quality enhancements for your BMW. I can confirm that our database shows that you have one outstanding (recalls/quality enhancements), please find listed below: · E7x replacing front propeller shaft (RoW) For your convenience I have listed for you below, previous recalls which have been completed on this car: · E70 E71 Check steering gear and replace, if applicable I hope you found this helpful and if there’s anything else I can help you with please do not hesitate to get back in touch with me. Kind regards Syed
  2. Hi over last 2 days have briefly lost brake servo while engine cold. Resolved when warmed up. Any ideas please?
  3. Space Saver ‘ditching runflats’

    Many thanks for that
  4. Space Saver ‘ditching runflats’

    Thanks. So I can get away with 17” space saver as a get me home?
  5. Space Saver ‘ditching runflats’

    Stupid question of the day. My car has 18” wheels. Does space saver spare have to be 18”? Just changed from run flats to normal tyres
  6. Secondary air system fault can cause this. It just increases amount of air on first start up and goes off after a couple of minutes. Not vital to the car, but can cause a lot of hassle if faulty. However the ECU can be programmed to ignore it. Worked for me. Another point, have all coil packs got the rubber boot at the bottom in place. If not this can allow the coil pack to move about causing random faults and misfires
  7. Rother Valley meet 2017

    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.

    And me!

    Never been to a meet before, but I am in Barnsley and would be interested, if that's ok
  10. e39 owner moved to an e60!

    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.
  11. Saloon boot lid 'damper'

    Keep me posted!
  12. Saloon boot lid 'damper'

    You could be right. That's why I was reluctant to try it
  13. Saloon boot lid 'damper'

    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?
  14. 520d glow plug controller

    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.
