  1. Bye bye F11, hello G32

    Very nice indeed and looks much better than the 5 GT it replaced
  2. ZF auto shifts past it limit

    There's no point its too slow
  3. ZF auto shifts past it limit

    its to jump from R to D or D to R without going through N, so you just need to push either way once while parking for example
  4. Sport > comfort != TC Off

    traction off is in Comfort mode. i believe Sport+ is sport with traction off
  5. M Sport suspension

    could be that you jacked the car slightly when applying the handbrake while it was moving, when you remove the brake it settles back to normal position
  6. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    yes, i only needed the one below, used the cheat sheet for that module to activate it SZL_LWS_03 / 3000 / Lenkrad_Shaltpaddles = aktiv
  7. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    No i had the non paddle version of that wheel, pic of the one i took off below. I really like it, especially now that you can change gears while the gearbox is in D if you want a quick downshift without putting your foot down, and it goes back into D within 10 seconds if you don't change manually again. If you change manually while its in D and flick over to M/S on the stick, it will keep the gear you were on rather than going into S mode, avoiding that drop in gear you may not have wanted, Just feels like its an option that should have been standard.
  8. Instrument displays..

    nope, white lines during the day, red/orange at night (as the rest of the lighting does)
  9. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Retrofitted paddle shift version of my M-Sport steering wheel. few leather press marks which I'm hoping will fix it self after some heat cycles but very happy easy to fit too.
  10. Changing xenon bulbs on LCI (non adaptive)

    On the LCI its no longer a twist type cover, its a case held on by 4x t20/t25 screws. you can get 2 of them out from under the wheel arch access hole but the other 2 are further in with no tool capable of accessing them. Officially its a bumper off job unfortunately. I did end up doing mine but by taking the two screws off that i could and pulling the cover off by force, duck taping the side with the broken screws to ensure a seal. so far no issues with condensation.
  11. Eco pro is actually nice in town where you dont to more than 20-30 as it changes gears earlier than comfort. everywhere else its comfort. Pulling out to overtake in eco pro feels like the car is in limp mode
  12. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Yep ive had these for awhile. AmPro and the other one aern't that good but i didn't expect them to fail for this type of job. oh well
  13. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    I'm on 76k now. Its a Cat D car and has had a tie rod end in the past and a wheel bearing in September , wont be surprised if some bits wear out earlier than others. Used Lemforder links, which was exactly the same brand that came off. The knocking is cured but I've also got this annoying creaking when going over bumps. Exactly like the video below but not as loud. The author mentions in the comments he cured it by lubricating the sway bar link. Ive just replaced that but could it be the rubber mounting? on RealOEM it doesn't look to be available separately, only as part of the whole bar. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=5C32-EUR-05-2014-F10N-BMW-520d&diagId=31_0827 Ill try to shoot some white grease the next time i can. any other suggestions?

    Changed the front anti roll bar links due to knocking noises over rough surfaces, ended up breaking 2 of my T40 sockets trying to undo them. They're not torqued that high so was surprising. had to use vice grips on the boot side which was not recommended but got away without damaging the new ones
