  1. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Are these LCI headlights? I've upgraded my low beams to LED with Philips h7 bulbs and very happy with the results. Looking to do same on high beam but not sure if it would be possible as fixture for high beam is different.
  2. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Drove about 20 miles without radio and fan on low. Noticed how squeaky the sport drivers seat is and very uncomfy compared to passenger side. Whats the solution?
  3. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Replaced the driver side but on the passenger side they couldn’t get one of the bolts off. It’s spinning on the spot won’t come out

    18"'s £250 for 2 from KwikFit after a little discount when I showed them the price on another site. Needed the rear urgently so went with it, fronts are being replaced tomorrow for £118 each.
  5. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I don't think they do Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in 18" yet. Since I've already replaced rears with Eagle F1's i'll go with them all round this time, they seem to handle rough road surface and potholes better than Michelin Super Sport.
  6. BMW e60 Charge Issue

    Just wondering if something like that would cause some sort of smokey smell like exhaust fume into the cabin when stationary on a steep hill?
  7. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I’ve had the readout checked by 2 other alignment places today and they’ve both said it’s fine. Replaced the rears with Goodyear Eagle F1 asymmetric 3 like them better so far will probably be replacing fronts with same next week.
  8. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I'm assuming it was fitted correctly as it was done at a reputable local garage that I always go to. Will get it checked again tomorrow by a different alignment place. Should I be expecting better handling etc by getting it fine tuned further or are all the angle being in the green zone good enough?
  9. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    They ride much better than my 17 year old worn out stock strut and springs. I didn't have top mounts replaced mechanic said they were fine. The place I had alignment done said they couldn't adjust front left camber but my mechanic doesn't agree. Is it worth taking it to a different place for a realignment? I'm thinking of going for Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 all round.
  10. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Any recommendations on new tyres? Currently have Michelin Pilot Super Sport that are due for replacement and the ride on those are too harsh for me.
  11. Genuine BMW E60 Brake Kits

    Hi, If your still doing the special offer can I have a quote for front and rear kit please. VIN: WBANA32010B354631
  12. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    It handles speed bumps and potholes much better now. Can't really compare to original ones as they were more or less completely gone when I bought the car. Nearly 4 years and 50k miles ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Replaced front upper and lower control arms, front and rear drop links with Meyle HD
  14. Dash cam

    I'm looking to do the same with a Nextbase 512GW on a 2005 520i sport. Did you find a solution?
