  1. E60 oil separator/breather replacement

    For ref, when I had a 2006 530d bought from a dealer with full BMW service history, that had a 'loo roll' type filter fitted. (Only found out after the turbo failed!!) Even then, it was me who had to fit the vortex separator as BMW refused to admit it was the cause of the turbo failure when they replaced it under warranty.
  2. VHT Caliper Paint - Help

    I have managed to order a can from here (I think??. Got a confirmation email, so lets see if it turns up!) http://1outlets.uk/shopping/ If you google the paint this option comes up in shopping. Free delivery worldwide according to the site. I certainly didnt pay anything, but as I said, lets see if and when it turns up!? Worth a shot for less than £20 Guess I will need to clear coat it afterwards too?
  3. 19" staggered alloys for my E60

    No, and they also have a different centre bore size. Would need spigot rings to fit an E60
  4. Free download for Carly Pro??

    Errrrrmm, I didnt 'buy' it last time. It was a free download. I expect its been updated many times since then too..
  5. Has anyone got a link to any known working versions of the Full BMW Carly App?? Downloaded it years ago from somewhere and it worked. Was installed on an old phone though, so want to put it on my latest one. Only want to code 1 thing really, so not willing to pay for it. *Flame suit on in readiness for the haters* LOL Cheers
  6. Just followed this.... Just look at the spoiler!!
  7. Sport button hack

    See this old thread... http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/74923-who-would-like-the-lci-sport-mode-on-there-pre-lci-e60/?page=1 Did it on my old e60. Fiddly but an easy job..
  8. Im looking at options regarding my 320d m47n2 engined e91 for a decat pipe. I currently have lots of other mods, but still have oe exhaust system in place. My car has a cat but no dpf fitted as standard. I have seen a couple of decat pipes but there seems to be a large variance in fitments across the range. (Ie 1 series and 3 series similarities etc) Also, I have come across a pipe with no brackets, nor sensor boss at a good price. What is the situation with the sensor?? How can you run this pipe with no sensor fitted?? Wouldnt this cause an error to be flagged up by ecu?? Expert advice and opinions greatly received please. Thanks.
  9. Alarm fob stopped working

    This was mine. Ignore the headliner down, not needed for this job.
  10. Alarm fob stopped working

    No write up needed. Open glass part of boot lid up. right hand side rubber gaitor (as you stand looking at boot) Carefully slice open lengthways. Re-join all wires that are broken (with a new length of wire 3-4 inches long if preferred) Tape up wires, and glue rubber gaitor back together. Wrap with insulation tape and enjoy being able to lock your car again on the fob. Its a really simple job to do if you have a soldering iron etc.... and some Insulation tape.
  11. Alarm fob stopped working

    Wires in tailgate loom snapped.. common fault on e91. Right hand side rubber, will need to cut open and solder wires back together. Glue rubber boot back together and tape up.
  12. Mapping out egr to stop dash light??

    Big Thanks to Enda for sorting this for me.
  13. Who can point me in the direction of someone who can provide this service? I dont want a remap, and I have no dpf as standard. I just want to be able to disable my egr and NOT have the warning light and error code pop up on the dash. Any idea if this can be done remotely?? (Have an Alientech flash unit I can read the map with to save the file for email purposes..) Also a rough cost? Many thanks..
  14. Suddenly both key remotes don't work

    Is this an e61?? If so, wires snapped in tailgate hinge area would be my guess. Happened on my 3 series estate. Inside the rubber gaitor between the car and tailgate at top.
