    F11 N57 Intake Manifold Cleaning

    Hi Matthew, excellent thread, a couple of questions for you. 1. Did you remove the swirl flaps or put them back on? 2. How was the test drive after all this work? Regards, Dave.............

    I have found that once you get on the motorway with eco pro on, mine gains very few miles as per Ronin's vehicle. But, use the same settings in town and country roads and it gains lots.

    F10 door corrosion

    How can this be a "good will gesture" when the car has a 12 year paint warranty. Madness. There must be thousands of F10/11's out there with this issue or the starting of an issue.

    Are you serious Steve that you cannot find it? You dont have to remove any of that to get to the panel that covers the yellow peril. Take a look at the picture below of where the yellow grommet is. Imagine a panel with four screws in it covering the grommet and there you have it. Lean in from the near side of the engine bay and look down towards the bulkhead and its there. Undo the four screws, three facing the bulkhead and one facing the wing and then pull the panel off. Simples..........
  6. I have owned both and with regards to refinement, the B47 is better. Although my boy has it in his 4 series, it is quite noisy in his.

    I remember the "coasting" feature being discussed before at length, some while ago. From what I remember, there is a section at the bottom of the main dash that shows when it is coasting. At that time many people who thought they had it where getting confused with another feature. Its a long time ago, at least 3 years ago it was discussed and it was an interesting thread which I learnt a lot from. Extract from the manual: EDIT found the discussion, it was actually in the B47 MPG thread around pages 5,6,7. One of the key comments is copied below. Coasting Principle The system helps to save fuel. To do this, the engine is automatically disconnected from the gearbox in selector lever position D under certain circumstances. The vehicle continues to roll in idle to reduce consumption. Selector lever position D remains engaged. This vehicle condition is called coasting. As soon as the brake or accelerator pedal is depressed, the engine is automatically connected again. It is selectable in as far as you have to tick a box under Eco Pro Settings in the iDrive. It does feel distinctly different in that it tends to run away with itself and you also notice when drive reengages. It only works in Eco Pro and when not using Cruise Control. It is clear when it is coasting from my Multi Function Display as follows: Display in the instrument display Sorry can't attach this time or obtain it from my Manual on My BMW - but see original post. The marking in the efficiency display has a blue background and is at zero. The coasting point display is illuminated at zero when coasting. I don't know what it shows if you only have the standard Black Panel Display - sorry. Hope this helps.

    Alan, if you have a Sept 2014 build then you have a B47 engine. Talking about your disappointment with Fuel consumption then you will be among a number of us on here with exactly the same thoughts. There is a large thread on here talking about exactly that. I will see if I can find it.

    Coasting was introduced in 2015 for the 520d. What month was yours built?
  11. It does seem strange for sure Andrew. You would have thought that it would not be cost effective for BMW to have multiple different wiring looms and part numbers pertinent to different optional extras being selected. I guess we will only know once Mike has taken a look to see where his wiring joins the loom, then those without the 12v socket looking at that section of the look to see if the wiring is strapped to it. I know Matthew has said he cannot see any wiring, but let's wait for a bit more info from Mike. It certainly seems strange. BMW only produce one under dash panel as those without the 12v socket report that they have the hole there ready for one. Very interesting.................................

    They will find anything to get out of it, especially if the car has a paint thickness issue..........

    It wont cost them anything Dakota if they keep rejecting claims lol !!!
  14. IIRC, it was mentioned whilst I was in there for something. But, you can ring up BMW CS and get them to check if you have anything outstanding?

    I think this is one of the worst we have seen.
