    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?

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

    Importing mobile numbers to iDrive

    When you link to your phone via bluetooth, the phone should prompt you to allow access to your phonebook. I'd suggest deleting the pairing from the phone and try again.

    e60 530d juddering when braking

    I suffered from bad vibration when braking on my E39, which after a warranty replacement and skim of the discs by EBC themselves was discovered to be the lower control arms.
