  1. newbie 2013 535d msport (313)

    Hi there and welcome, any pics of your car?
  2. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    @dj1233 Maybe a bit overkill but now the brakes feel really good and strong, much better than the textar pads which still had loads of life left on em.
  3. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Copied from another site:Perform at least 20 brake applications using medium deceleration (approximately 60% of maximum) starting from 60mph and slowing to 20mph. Do not come to a stop. Accelerate back to the starting speed allowing 20-30 seconds before beginning the next brake application. After completion, drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes with little or no braking in order to adequately cool the components.When it can be done legally, or on a closed circuit, a secondary bedding operation is beneficial. Repeat the above procedure for 5 to 10 brake applications increasing the starting speed to 80mph and increasing the deceleration rate to 80% of maximum. After completion, drive the vehicle for at least 10 minutes with little or no braking in order to adequately cool the components. The system is now ready for normal use.
  4. Another Engine Oil Question

    How about using 5w30 fully synthetic non ll04 as there's more options out there, if it isn't necessary? I'm still using Shell ll04 oil btw
  5. Another Engine Oil Question

    Do we still need to use LL04 approved oil if the dpf has been deleted?
  6. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Got new brembo pads on the front did the bedding in procedure but not a 100% yet. Definitely a lot better than the textar pads, they were rubbish. My mtec dimped and grooved discs are annoying me now everytime i brake theres this stupid noise which i cant describe, the stopping power is good but the noise is annoying. Also painted my calipers a very dark blue, 3 coats of paint and 1 coat of lacquer.
  7. RIP Keith (Urquattro)

    RIP - so sad to hear, thoughts with the family.

    Cheers mate! I need to get this sorted soon, I've seen the parts at euros just over £100 with discount, but I'll be going to a garage as I'm useless at diy

    Not working in my phone
  10. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Where did you buy these from? Has it made a difference and any pics of the old ones? Cheers
  11. @Lennox Do it all apart from the rear spoliers, blue calipers are very common now on f series too so its not that outlandish. They even come with m badges which if you did yourself is apparently a big no no lol Btw shadow chrome alloys would look great
  12. costco cheap diesel

    You've got to be a member unfortunately, i have a individual membership as my wife works for the nhs.
  13. costco cheap diesel

    They've opened a fuel station near me and they have premium diesel, premium petrol and normal petrol. I'd like to know what makes the premium diesel, premium? Is it as good as Shell vpower diesel? The diesel is almost 20p cheaper than Shell too so I'd like to try it out but I've only ever used Shell vpower. On pistonheads a few have mentioned the premium petrol is the same as tesco momentum 99.
  14. XC90 yeah or Nae?!?

    How about the V70 R AWD? Used to love these.
  15. Top intercooler hose split / E61 535d

    If its just the rubber pipe that has split replace that only with some samco stuff and re-use the metal pipe and black plastic attachment. Don't buy the ebay specials as the black plastic connector piece is crap quality and can split when putting your foot down. I cracked two in the space of 6 months and i have a 535d too.
