    Headlight upgrades

    well, if you can afford it and have the time, an upgrade to Xenon is the way forward. I was lucky in that my car has these as standard, but I swapped the bulbs for the Osram NIghtbreakers for best results.

    My LCI Headlight Conversion...

    Are there pre made kits for a LCi Bi Xenon conversion?

    Yup, that's pretty much the standard cable you need.

    Winter tyres yes or no?

    When I got my car, it had bog standard 16" wheels. I replaced these with 17" for summer use, and used the 16" as winters, I fitted them with Conti Winter Contacts TS830P 225/55R 16H and never had any issues. If you have no qualms about part worn tyres, find a decent set for a fraction of the price.

    Coolant leak / pressure issue

    Yes. Google for instructions on how to access it, or get a code reader that allows you to monitor live engine data

    Coolant leak / pressure issue

    perhaps the cap has lost it's pressure seal? Have you monitored the engine temps to make sure it's all ok?

    Btw e60 2005 reversing light issue

    There is a well known earthing issue with the pre-lci clusters - check for signs of melting on the bulb holders
