  1. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I also received an invitation from North Yorkshire Police to send them a cheque for £100 and to include my license, although not sure why they want it because points are no longer recorded in the license!. This was a roadside van on the A64 near York!
  2. OK, bored and scanning e-bay for F11 parts, page 6 (yes, that bored)! Who in their right mind would fit these? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Purple-Universal-Woolen-Long-Plush-Steering-Wheel-Cover-Car-Grips-Accessory/122965714924?fits=Car+Make%3ABMW|Plat_Gen%3AF11&epid=725051734&hash=item1ca153e7ec:g:O-YAAOSwc-tY4fut
  3. I know! It was as much as a shock to me too, mind you, it's a decent excuse to take the car out to Lidl to get some cheap flowers, chocolates I've never heard of and some Blue Nun wine. I can see the Best Boyfriend Ever medal coming my way again.

    I'm sure she'll understand
  5. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I got a complete secondhand console off e-bay for £45 just for the rear vents and as it happened it was a non phone prep one so I swapped the bins out. When you unplug the large connector for the adapter there are only two pins in it, a live and earth for the adapter to charge the phone, bought one of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DDC-12V-To-5V-Converter-Module-3A-15W-Micro-USB-For-Mobile-Phone-Charger/292442752734?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 and run the lead through one of the holes under the base mat in the bin. As for the rear vents, no tools are requied to replace them, the whole unit just pulls off the end of the console. I'll try and get some pictutres together later this week.

    Removed the redundant center console snap-in adapter bin, fitted a second-hand non-phone prep bin and a micro usb charger connected to the old snap-in adapter wiring. Also replaced the broken rear vents! Next job, fitting a tracker.

  8. Going round in circles with E-SYS and Launcher

    Thanks for the reply, I've emailed Tokenmaster with proof of charity deposit, but I'm not holding my breath! I've searched everywhere for a download link for a working launcher, but I think it would be easier to crack WhatsApp encryption than finding a working link! Let's just hope TM sees my email.
  9. Hi Guys n' gals, I have purchased E-SYS and all loaded successfully but having problems with the premium launcher? Are there any alternatives and if so where can I find them? Thanks in advance, Chris.

    Thanks guys, I'll do as suggested but I think I may be in for a wait! Really grateful for your responses, Chris
  14. E-Sys Launcher Premium and Token Master issues

    Any idea where from?
  15. I'm trying to open E-Sys Premium but the Token Master doesn't seem to be able to find the token. I've tried putting the token in different placed when generated, but no luck. Any ideas will be greatly received Many Thanks Chris.
  16. E-SYS

    My apologies, I genuinely thought I had bought them from you! Just had another look and it's BCABLES, I'll see if they can help, sorry again! Chris
  17. E-SYS

    Hi, I purchased your lead and software from e-bay and currently following the loading instructions. I have got as far as number 12 where it asks to generate a token and I have as instructed. I have the successfully created message and press the OK button, then all I get is the box to create a code pop up again and nothing else?, it does say there may be a wait "for a while as log files are written, I left it on all night! TIA Chris

    I would advise against blanking the EGR valve as it aids the increase of exhaust gas temperature during the DPF regeneration. Also when fitted it needs to be placed in a service mode to retract the valve by 20% to prevent damage during installation, it's about a 20 min job by an experienced technician.
  19. Hi Guys, I'm interested in buying this unless anyone can recommend an alternative supplier. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-ENET-DIAGNOSTIC-CODING-CABLE-FOR-ALL-BMW-F-SERIES-CARS-OBD2-ESYS-ISTA/162541368163?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Many Thanks Chris
  20. Bluetooth

    Hi peeps! When I connect my Samsung Galaxy S7 edge to my F11 I lose all audio from the phone and If I want to watch a video on the phone I have no audio from either the car or phone except phone call audio which works as normal. Is there a setting either on the car or phone that allows me to hear audio on either without having to unpair the phone? Thank in advance. Chris.

    I replaced the n/s tailgate led as the old one was flickering!
  22. I carry a tyre plug kit, a compressor, a ground sheet and some mechanics gloves.
  23. Performance air filter

    Does anyone know if there is a performance air filter available for the 530d (the chain guard shaped one)? Thanks Chris
  24. Performance air filter

    I'm under no illusion that it makes notable performance gains, but having a remap certainly does and to me it makes sense to do the two together.
  25. Performance air filter

    Went to ITG in Coventry, took a new OEM filter, they stripped, rebuilt and oiled it using their filter technology. Very professional job, and a sticker!
