  4. Angel Eye questions

    yes - only for LCI Halogen but the £££ for them shows that a £50 set will just be a waste JJ

  11. Regen happens with Glow plug errors!

    i think mine has just been slowly getting clogged and finally gave up i'm not going to remove and remap yet - too much money and i like fixing things Avon tuning are just down the road so i have a good option should i need it JJ
  12. Regen happens with Glow plug errors!

    agreed on the glow plugs so can i force a regen on a C110 scanner? JJ
  13. Carly Pro for BMW, FOXWELL NT624 Diagnostic Code Reader

    every time i come to use DISv57 on my win10 laptop i need to spend an hour on the phone to BAUS to set all the network ports. He knows his stuff and it still takes an hour all i want to do is force a regen on my E60 525D and go for a drive to stop the DPF light coming on Is Carly ok for the basics?? resetting codes and DPF etc? Is it essential to buy the Carly wifi dongle (i have iphone) what other options are there?? JJ
  14. Regen happens with Glow plug errors!

    yeah i know manifold off yeah?? I want to get the regen sorted first though - wish i could get DIS working JJ
  15. Regen happens with Glow plug errors!

    after my posts a year or so back all about the DPF and curing the issue by fitting the additional thermostat and trying to get DIS talking to my car (i'm no IT geek) BAUS finally got things sussed. However, got DPF issues again (which I would expect doing mainly town driving) but my garage is adamant that because I have 4 x glow plug errors (525d) this is the reason it won't regen. Having the inability to be able to reconfigure my laptop to talk and not wanting to pay £400 for 4 x glow plugs to be replaced knowing pretty well that it still won't regen i'm after some simpler solutions. is there a stand alone scanner that clears faults and will force a regen??
