  1. Hi does anyone know if you change auto gearbox bmw 525d e60 so take my old faulty one out and replace with a good working one would it need coding or would I need to change the mechatronic over for it to work? Thanks
  2. Thanks e46 space saver on eBay is less then half the Price or e60 does that also mean e46 alloys fit E60 like mv2, asking as I have a noisy wheel/bearing and tying to swap tyres to eliminate
  3. What's the best way to find out which wheel sound coming from? used to sound like front but now I'm thinking it's rear, tyres front are firestone fire hawk and rear is another cheap budget
  4. Yes finaincal reasons, driving manual after 4 years bloody hate it lol
  5. I owned a BMW e60 535d lci for 4 years apart from the small isisies like vacuum hoses, boost solonoid etc never had a single issue. Yes the dpf will give you issues if used for short journeys, 6 cylinder twin turbo hard to find anything as close to it which has the economy and performance, Really nice drive, good car good spec replaced recently with a lci 520d, the 4 pot is way noisy, the 6 pot diesel hardly sounded like a diesel car. Have a 118i bmw in the family for last 4 years also which does around 4K miles a year and I'm always replacing things, and many oil leaks. Friend has a e60 530i and it don't really have the power as a 530d. The only downside with the diesels is the dpf for short journeys, they seem to suffer a lot. My next car will be a f10 535i but hardly any about
  6. Pre lci it's much easier it's in the middle of the car, covers off and you will see it straight away, only issue is the bolts for the flange most likely will be very rusty or corroded away
  7. Pressing the snowflake button and blower on full but no cold air coming out, just normal air. Ive checked using Inpa and when car is runing pressing the ac button on dash does not select the ac switch on inpa, it has a black circle which is empty and I believe should go black when ac button presses on dash. I only have a error code for aux water pump would that stop the ac from working ? thanks
  8. Depend on how much mileage you do
  9. Was it a grinding noise or humming sound the wheel bearing the car has firestone firehawk rft tyres which I think is causing the humming noise from front seem quiter after 60mph but maybe as the noise on road you can't hear tyres as much
  10. Anyone ? or what alternative to a spare wheel dummy type
  11. Thanks il check the pdc for clicking sound anyone repaired tailgate wiring and what does it cost and how long to do
  12. Just bought a lci 520d e61 when viewing it I did notice the tailgate glass part did not open and also had errors for rear reverse lights and rear fogs anywat bought the car as it had a lot of work done and a lot of history. So so what I need to fix is - split tailgate don't open - rear reverse light failure - rear fog lights failure - PDC failure I take it all are related to the tailgate loom being damaged? Will the pdc also be due to that. Thanks
  13. Anyone else fitted a e46 space saver to an e61?
  14. It don't have air suspension has normally shocks and springs
  15. I'm looking at the car now says level control system fault
