  1. I haven't had mine repaired yet. But I did call Andy @ Surrey Sunroofs. The price he quoted will be worth the 4 hour drive to get to him. I'll be getting my sunroof repaired by Andy as soon as I can get a spare couple of days. http://www.surreysunroofs.co.uk/

    535i Real MPG

    Maybe a 550 GT then Although road tax is a bit too high! I understand the comments on weight difference between F07 & F10. Based on the information in this thread I'd would now look at 535i's when I change as well as 535d's. Don't mind if F07 or F10 next.

    535i Real MPG

    Absolutely! It took months to find both of my 535d's with the spec I wanted. But something's are worth waiting for

    535i Real MPG

    Thanks for the replies. Makes interesting reading. I've had 2 x 535d's and was thinking of looking at 535i for when I change. MPG isn't a hang up for me, but it's good to know the facts. I'll definitely look at 535i's as well as 535d's for my next one. Thanks again.

    535i Real MPG

    Hi Guys Can anyone who owns a 535i tell me what the real MPG is around town and on a run? Thanks Mark
  6. Paperjams - a big thank you. I have contacted Andy at Surrey Sunroofs and he quoted me £695.00 for the complete job. He was very familiar with the fault. They a long way from me, but at that price I'd travel (based on indication quote from Indy). My Sister in law is 50 miles from Surrey Sunroofs. So it looks like we'll going for a visit soon. Thanks again.
  7. Thanks Paperjams. I have sent an email to a sunroof specialist. Hopefully they can help me out.
  8. I went to the Indy today and they had a look at my sunroof and the sunscreen has pretty much had it. The metal strip (spring) on the sunscreen is now in mess at the back of the roof. As expected, it's a roof out job. They reckon half a day to strip out, a few hours to put new screen in and another half day to put back in. So I'm looking at probably a day and a half labour, plus the new sunscreen which is £280.00. Plus anything else they find wrong. Its going to have to wait a while, which I hate. But I've got to have new lower control arms done next week which is going to hit the wallet hard. The sunscreen failure does seem to be a very common issue and I have heard many comments that pano roofs are a pain in the arse. BMW must know there's a design flaw, but they're not going to care, particularly on a 6 year old car. I still might have a word with a sunroof specialist, but there is no doubt that the sunroof has to come out and I know the cost of the part. But maybe I could save on the labour cost which is going to be the bulk of the repair cost.

    F07 2010 Pano Sunroof Sun Screen

    Hi The ref is G6YNC. Hopefully my description was good enough for you to understand the part I may require. Thank you
  10. I'm going to speak to the Indy I use tomorrow (Monday). I have found a sunroof specialist in Taunton which is about 60 miles away from me. So I can call them if I don't get any joy with the Indy. Always use Indy rather than Stealers, as Lennox says, stealers are just fitters nowadays. I'd have a go at it myself as I've had sunroofs out before, but I don't have a garage or workshop. Thanks for all of the replies
  11. Mine is a 2010. If you use the sunroof and hear a noise like paper jamming in a printer, stop the roof!!
  12. Thanks Paperjams. I'm a bit too far away from Surrey. But I will see if there are any sunroof specialists in my area.
  13. Hello Please can you tell me how much a replacement sunscreen (retractable headliner) for a 2010 F07 in cream? Yesterday when closing the sun screen, the drivers side track of the sun screen seems to have come unattached from the guide and the metal track has got stuck. As the sun screen closed (pulled forward by passenger side), the metal track on the drivers side has been pulled away from the fabric. Thank you. Regards Mark
  14. Hi I had an unpleasant experience yesterday when I closed the sunscreen (the retractable headlining part of the sunroof). In short, I think the drivers side has somehow come unattached from the guide and got stuck. As the sunscreen closed (being pulled forward by passenger side guide), the metal guide track on the drivers side has pulled away from the fabric and the metal track is all coiled up like a spring. Not impressed!!! Has anyone had the same issue? If so, what was the cost to fix? I am going to speak to local Indy tomorrow about it. But I might have a go at fixed myself because the labour cost will be high I think. Just need use a workshop or big garage for a few days. Ive had a sunroof out on another car before and it was a pig of a job. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Mark

    Changing wheels on F07

    That looks really nice. A nice set of wheel really make a car. I want to get rid of the 18's and the 50 profile which can't happen soon enough!! I just need to convince she who must be obeyed!
