    Hi Phil, Ok no worries I will try BMW U.K. to see if that may be able to assist in obtaining this certificate. Thanks again for trying Phil, I really appreciate it. kind regards Marc

    Hi Phil, Yes we've actually spoken several times in the past over the phone and you seemed to know your stuff so I'm a little surprised you haven't come across this certificate of conformity before. Im positive it is in fact something a main dealer can supply as my Suzuki dealer where well aware of it and got it sorted swiftly. There are companies out the that do it: https://www.certificateconformity.co.uk/certificate-conformity-bmw However I always feel as if they are a con, hence why I'm being persistent in going directly through BMW to get it done. Thanks again Marc

    Hi there I'm after some info on the C.O.C (certificate of conformity) not clash of clans lol I am thinking about registering one of my bmws in France and I've been told as its newer than 1996, it needs to have this "certificate of conformity" for it to be re-registered over here. Please could you kindly let me know if this is something you may be able to help me with. Are there any costs involved? Also, roughly what would be the turnaround time for the whole procedure? Thanks and kind regards Marc

    Under seat battery size

    Tanya batteries have always been superb with me. Great customer service. I thought they were bases in Wales though, not Luton?!

    I can also confirm that a 019 will fit under the rear seat of an E34. That's exactly what I fitted in my 540iA/T

    Any M51 gurus about?!

    Oh and here's the link just in case any one might be interested. It comes from Poland and dead easy to fit. Well worth it imho https://m.ebay.fr/itm/HOT-START-FIX-BMW-E34-E36-E32-E39-2-5-2-4-TD-2-5-TDS-STARTING-WARM-ENGINE-MODULE/201241774850?hash=item2edaf1cb02:g:6XgAAOSwGvhT28gk

    Right then, fitted this eBay "hot start" fix gizmo and essentially it turns on the glow plugs every time you turn the ignition. Do you know what, best 20 euros I ever spent on the car. Works a charm and more importantly no more embarrassing hot start problems! M51 engine now starts first time every time hot or cold.

    A ‘P’ plate e34.

    Pretty sure mine has passenger airbag too. Didn't think it was that unusual?!

    Just to add incase any one looks into this thread, on my 99' TDS the intank fuel pump primes for 10 secs every time the ignition is switched on regardless of engine temperature. After 10 secs it then switches off unless the engine is started, then it stays on permanently until the engine is switched off again

    Any M51 gurus about?!

    Right made a tiny bit of progress this morning. I found out using a voltmeter that the fuel pump actually DOES prime every time the contact is turned regardless of if the engine is cold or not. I don't know if this is the case with E34's but now I definitely know this is true with my 99' E36 TDS. So that means from what I can work out anyway; it's only the glow plugs that don't come on when the engine is warm..... Still can't explain why it bump starts immediately but won't off the starter...
