  1. Yes any sort of hydrophobic coating will do the job, some with last more than others and I'm trying the g1 at the moment and have good results. As for screenwash I just use the halfords citrus concentrate, and dilute less in summer than in winter, smells nice Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. Treating the window is more important than the quality of screenwash Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. 150A if you have heated seats, otherwise itll be the 120A
  4. nope that does not look like the alternator for your car
  5. Was this the car you bought? http://www.mikenealselect.co.uk/used-cars/audi-a8-4-0-tdi-se-saloon-quattro-4dr-lwb-pontefract-201705205657133 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. BMW use MAHLE filters so the DIY "full" service costs for me were £105.03 after adding the BMWCLUB discount code. Even for a newbie the cost of tools + jack will still cost you less than a BMW dealer service, and youll keep the tools for the next service. i plan on changing oil every 8k, air/pollen filter every 16k and fuel filter every 32k (most pain in the ass to change). I plan on keeping the car for a good 5 years so im fine with doing services myself and keeping receipts of whats been done.

  7. Does anyone know what the operating coolant temp should be on the N47 520d? mines constantly around a steady 85-87c on the motorway
  8. Yeah I do miss the straight 6 530d. But the f10 is more refined in the cabin especially in town. And can't complain with 53mpg over my weeks commute It's sophisto grey metallic. The photos picked it up abit lighter than it is. But a really nice colour in person Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. Maybe have a look under the door trim and see if there is a light bar inside? non-ambent equipped cars will have the slot but with no light bar inside.
  10. Oh right sorry, Then yeah i think its a CR2016 but i would just open it and double check.
  11. Bought it last week, its only a 520d unfortunately, but drives very well and more practical than the e39 i had and hopefully more reliable
  12. its VL2020-1HF, you need to get the specific type as its a rechargeable battery and needs to be soldered on http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panasonic-VL2020-Rechargeable-Battery-for-BMW-Key-Fob-3-5-7-E46-series-/371820966662?hash=item569241b306:g:JLEAAOSwUV9WmW9v

  15. Welcome. Good to see you here, had read your thread with the experience you had with your F10... not good i must say for the dealer.
