  1. I've replaced mine twice with used parts. Not ideal but more cost effective for me. I had my idrive repaired and updated by a guy on eBay and he also does the BT modules. He'll be getting mine if it goes again.
  2. The only time I have had the Christmas tree effect was down to the crank pulley failing, and not constantly running the belt. Doesn't explain the noises though!
  3. Possibly not relevant but is your Bluetooth ok?
  4. I hope you're right! Don't see why at this point but worth a try with a replacement clip ........
  5. After some hectic months, but with relatively trouble free motoring, the car decided to let me know it was still there! Driving merrily along dual carriageway today, neither quickly nor erratically, when I heard a pop. No errors flashed up but car obviously down on power. Pulled over and saw straight away that the charge air pipe had apparently come loose. Got it replaced and off I went. Two seconds later and it was off again. Replaced again and revved the car whilst an innocent bystander kept an eye on the pipe. At about 3 1/2 or 4k he told me to stop as the pipe seemed to be coming off again. At that I just eased home at around 2k or so. So my question is - what would force the pipe off? It's silicone, 6 months old, and I am not aware of any previous issues. It has 'spat' fluid and gunk over the surrounding area, so I cannot say whether the residue around the other end of the charge air and intercooler pipes is fresh or not. Have had a look online and don't mind researching this way if someone could please point me in the right direction. There must be a more technical term than that of my post title!! Thanks very much
  6. Yep, me too
  7. Got it repaired and the software updated (for a little extra iirc). That was in June and no issues so far. The guy was true to his word too - I was going away and wanted the unit back by a certain date and he sorted it out no bother. Good communication too
  8. Yes mate. Can't copy the link but if you use this item number you'll find him - 162275702049
  9. Cable shack - forum sponsor. Jimmy will sort out the software for you
  10. I got mine done by a guy on eBay. £250 iirc. Years warranty. So far so good
  11. No bother pal, hope he can help
  12. This is the item number pal, but I should add that mine was for an E60. 162262922706
  13. I'll get the details, two minutes ............
  14. I got my ccc repaired following similar symptoms. I didn't try BBReman at all, though I am aware of their work due to previous cars. I used a guy on eBay who was excellent and tbh cheaper than revtronics. At least with a repair you're getting 12 months warranty.
  15. Not what I expected from the title! If only all BM issues were at this level
