  1. From what you say it seems likely it would pass on new rules. Really depends on when and how you decide to get rid of it. I’m hoping that mine has hit rock bottom price wise and will be worth spending money on. Future classic?
  2. Yes, most unusual....not. Main one was passenger side rocker cover. Got that fixed. Still got smaller leaks, from timing covers I suspect. Need to get those fixed. One of them drips a bit onto exhaust and gets annoying in traffic queues when starts to smoke a bit.
  3. Depends whether you think there are any issues which may be affected by the new rules. For example, mine was tested in January and passed, even though it had a dripping oil leak. Under the new rules, it would have failed.

    Parking light or sidelight bulb

    I think so. I had been told it was the one that is fixed into a holder and costs about £30 but I think that is in the LCI models, but been unable to confirm which it is. Hopefully this one which is much cheaper and easier to replace

    Comfort Seats - Adding heat...

    Not so much an issue for me. My other half keeps asking about heated seats. The cost and effort involved will hopefully change her mind!

    Comfort Seats - Adding heat...

    So, you can’t retro fit without actually replacing the seat cover?

    Rear tyre wear on inside edge

    As above. I had exactly the same on my 530d. Tyre people said same, common with run flats. I have changed to non-run flats on 545i and no issues plus quieter and more comfortable ride.

    CD Changer not showing in Idrive

    It may seem obvious, but is the changer correctly installed with CDs in it? When I first got my car the changer didn’t show in the iDrive for this reason. It was in its place at the back of the glovebox, but not correctly installed.

    Gremlins Everywhere

    Same happened to me. End result was catastrophic failure of electrics, which took out power steering and brake servo. Just managed to get it in neutral before died completely (automatic) otherwise it couldn’t even have been pushed. Failed going through traffic lights blocking a bus lane as well. Nightmare! Cause of alternator failure was slow drip of coolant onto alternator from a leak in the complicated hose arrangement sitting directly above alternator This is on 545i.

    Error free rear indicator bulbs

    Thanks. I’ll give them a try
  21. Hi I thought this would be an easy internet/eBay search, but I’m struggling. Looking for amber non-error LED rear indicator bulbs for my 2004 e60 545i. Any recommendations? Thanks

    Error free rear indicator bulbs

    Thanks. Are these brighter than normal? I have been using an led bulb, because the standard bulbs not very bright, but which despite being canbus is showing errors and sometimes stops working. Are these a better alternative?

    Do glow plugs affect DPF regeneration?

    If glow plug controller is faulty it will affect DPF regent even if glow plugs themselves are ok
