  2. Looking at a 550i tomorrow, advise please!

    Simple.... The owner can't afford to run it and too worried about depreciation.
  3. 535d turbo refurb options?

    You can get a replacement cartridge for the small turbo (KP39) or get it refurbished (replace worn parts only) or remanufactured (new cartridge). Prices vary, however typically you're looking around £250-£300 and £350-£400 for both stock turbos. Depending on the kit, BMW oil return gaskets are better quality and exhaust manifold - turbo gaskets are STUPID money (£40 each).
  4. Personally, I would remove the centre section. Worst case is when you cut corners to save time and in the end it takes 3x longer and you don't want to damage the new seal (#3) and clamp (#2). It's PITA doing it on the road/drive with no helper.
  5. Considering F10 M-Sport...

    I know and plenty of hot hatches hit that mark. However, the scope of the discussion is about F10/F11 and you can always get it remapped by our Maverick tuner, MP. If your daily drive is A and B roads then you don't want to be stuck behind queue of cars and lorries which isn't fun. Get an 'all-rounder'.

    What's the difference between Sachs and Boge? Both from ZF.
  7. Considering F10 M-Sport...

    If you own a 300bhp+ car, the word 'queue' is not in your vocabulary.
  8. MP is the person to ask since his car is also LCi and has replaced both turbos. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e61-535d-tou/repair-manuals/18-exhaust-system/18-10-rear-front-silencer-diesel-fuel/HZSbtCG https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e61-535d-tou/repair-manuals/11-engine/11-65-charger-with-control/HUO3lmk
  9. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Tighten to 5nm, loosen an retighten to 8nm. I can't exactly remember the torque figures. I just hammered and shaped it around with pliers. It was leaking first, then kept tightening until I 'felt' it was snug (12-15 nm?). Didn't want to pay £20+. Norma make all clamps for BMW https://www.normagroup.com/corp/en/RGRAY-UniFlexV/
  10. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Tap around the v-clamp so it seats properly and tighten it by 1/8 - 1/4 turn. I reused the v-clamp when doing flexi on the cat and there is no leak.
  11. TOOLS

    RS always expensive...... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bahco-S4RM-4T-Ratchet-Wrench/dp/B004TH28AU/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1521147736&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=bacho+S4RM%2F4T

  13. TOOLS

    Yes, the simplicity of the Lisle tool is what makes it awesome. I looked at the timing kit for the M57TU but they don't include the crank tool (bit baffled, TDC not important?). In my heyday I would have knocked it out on the lathe
  14. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    What oil will you be running? Mobil 1 0W-20?
  15. Looking at a 550i tomorrow, advise please!

    Heat and inefficient cooling system.
