  1. He mentioned checking the fuel pressure by removing a hose, there is no need to do any sort of bleeding post filter change on this engine, you simply crank until it fires up, usually within 5 seconds, probably messed something up or connected something wrong. Hopefully someone else with comment on this here in terms of what to do next but from what you say the garage is at fault.
  2. To me that sounds like hes tried to change something else. The diesel fuel filter is located under the car, around the same location as the front passenger seat. its not that difficult to change so i suspect hes been messing around with something else in the engine bay and caused damage. Its abit messy to change but there should in no circumstances be diesel all over the place in the bonnet. Did you provide the parts? Ask the garage for the part he replaced

    Insurance on 520d

    Last year being 26, in London and with 4 years NCB my quote with direct line was 1.5k, its now gone down to 1.1k this year. If you want to keep the 520d you'll just have to accept the high prices until you have some NCB and the age for the prices to go down

    F11 525d DDE Error Code 0x260100

    have you done any sort of diagnostics and tested the sensor is getting the correct power / ground / signals?

    Anyone else had this?

    or its got a tan due to the weather?
  6. I cant really say 100% because one of the bulbs were on their way out shorly after i bought the car, but according to the OSRAM specs the CBI gives a slight light distance than the standard bulbs while having a more crisp white look. its not as blue as people would expect which is what i like. OSRAM Nightbreakers are the ones designed for the longest distance. I have found CBI has more than enough lighting at night and am very happy with them. Never tried Philips myself.
  7. The cover on the headlight to access the bulbs is secured with 4 Torx t20 screws. Like @Greenninja said its impossible to get to the last one unless you break off the cover, which i ended up doing as i wasn't in the place and with the tools to remove the bumper. On the wheel arch liner itself there's an access flap secured by a phillips screw so there's no need to remove the whole thing unless you really want to. you can see from the pic below the screw on the top left is still there as i took off the cover. I would do it the right way if you can, however if you do it as i did, you need to make sure it is still sealed with just 3 screws in place and use duck tape if necessary to avoid water/condensation and ruining the LED module: Also, OSRAM D1S Original Xenarc is the OEM builbs. I upgraded to the CBI (Cool blue intense) bulbs in mine.

    Cheap Cabin Filter

    i would avoid "Cheap Cabin filters" after seeing this article, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2018/07/08/car-cabin-pollution-scare-prompts-calls-new-air-conditioning/ The E class is most likely using the same supplier BMW uses. stick to Mahle / MANN carbon activated ones https://www.opieoils.co.uk/pv-139448-mahle-carbon-activated-pollen-air-filter-cabin-filter-lak467s-lak-467s.aspx?vehicleid=27330&yearfilter=2016&providerpartid=92807769&genericpartid=424&providerpartlinkid=150203345&genericpartname=Interior air (cabin) filter
  9. It is quite a complex system, this link might explain some of it to you: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f10-520d-lim_201405/wiring-functional-info/body/heating-air-conditioning-functions/2cktSL1F

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

    Yep 530d has a different part number even though it looks similar. 535i uses the same part.. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/partxref?id=5C32-EUR-05-2014-F10N-BMW-520d&mg=22&sg=10&diagId=22_0094&q=22326781235&series=F10N

    No idea it just let go while driving out of a junction. I have been giving it alot of beans recently in sport mode so that could have stressed this part too much. good thing i was 200m from a garage and not stuck on the m25
