    F10 525d brake pads and discs

    Visually, do the front and rear discs look the same size on the car? 348mm x 36mm on 525d as standard is odd.

    The interior may/will disappoint you since you own a F10.

    Replacing front fogs

    If you turn the wheels inward, this may give you clearance to access the wheel liner.
  11. Unless, it's spent most of it's life on the motorway the dual mass flywheel and clutch should have been replaced.

    Over-tightened Wheel Bolts

    when storing away and not in use, always set it to the lowest torque reading.

    Over-tightened Wheel Bolts

    This is worth having in the boot and saves damaging the alloys - thin walled impact socket.

    Over-tightened Wheel Bolts

    Generally, accuracy is within +/- 4% unless you have one that costs more than your two wheels.
