  1. 535d Performance....

    The new 3 series may feel quicker than yours for a few reasons. The interior is much smaller, they are a bit lighter, they are only about 30bhp off and the power on a 330d is less linear than on a 35d engine so imo feels like ot boosts a bit harder. If you are really worried, get the fault codes read and get it rolling roaded to see what it produces. Try a newer 530d and I bet yours will feel in a different league. I use both the 3 and the 5 in 3 litre guise at work and the 3 series feels in a different league to the 5

  3. Tire reccomends

    Be very careful with tyre leader and make sure you look at the year that the tyre was manufactured! Many of their tyres are only cheap because they are old
  4. Possibly conned

    You'd be surprised! That's why having a mechanic that you trust is so important If you're that worried, maybe phone the garage or ask a mate who's handy with a spanner to check the filter? It'll be pretty obvious if it's new
  5. Possibly conned

    Have a look at the filter..surely that'll tell you if it's been done or not. I wouldn't expect a mechanic to clear all of the crud out tbh

    Between 15 and 30 horsepower?
  7. Corrosion area's E60

    Body work wise, the corners of the bootlid under the tailgate glass bubbles on a few cars
  8. BMW engine light on help.

    The I drive and centre display (if you toggle through) should tell you what it is thats making the triangle come on. If the engine light goes out, no issue, just part of the ignition cycle
  9. BMW engine light on help.

    Does the little warning triangle next to 'P' go out as Well? It's the initial ignition check I think so it should be fine if it goes out when the engine starts
  10. Gearbox fault?

    Welcome to owning an e61!
  11. 2007 E60 523i (LCI) Xenon

    You've got non adaptive xenons then. Being and LCI makes no difference as adaptive xenons weren't standard on LCI cars

    Doesn't mean it's got adaptive xenons though. Different option
  13. 2007 E60 523i (LCI) Xenon

    When you turn your headlights on, do the xenons self adjust both up and down and side to side? If they only adjust up and down, you have normal xenons, if side to side as well, you have adaptive xenons I'm pretty sure that neither respond to speed. Wiper speed they do though!?
  14. E61 tailgate boot wiring

    If I have to spend anymore of time fixing this car there's a chance I'll start smashing it up, id rather just have someone else do it now lol
