    ISTA and DPF Regen History - SOLVED

    Cant remember the exact path but this screenshot will hopefully help (that i took when checking my DPF status). under the screen that lists all the modules, i believe there is a button along the likes of "ECU functions" or "Call up ECU" that will give you the top window, from there you need to select the data parameters you cant to view and then read the state:

    Front wheel bearings failure

    looks easy on paper but didn't go very well for me. the front control arm (trailing link) is in the way of one of the 4 bolts holding the bearing in place. taking that out of the swivel bearing was impossible for me as it was siezed in. ended up tearing the boot trying different things and taking it to my nearest specialist BMW (Highams Park Motors in walthamstow) to replace the bearing + a new wishbone. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f10-520d-lim_201405/repair-manuals/31-front-axle-front-suspension/31-21-wheel-bearings-steering-knuckle/GPPfHMN also to note the bearing kit you get as a replacement (FAG or BMW) come with newer T60 bolts instead of the M12 spline that will need to be removed. they have different threads so you cannot re-use the old ones

    Front wheel bearings failure

    plus depends on where its been driven too, the amount of pot holes would cause premature failure on the bearings. alot of those where i and the previous owner live

    Front wheel bearings failure

    on the motorway i started hearing the droning from the front right. with the wheel off and spun you can hear the bearings grinding. wasn't that loud and no play. if its got play then that's dangerous.

    F11 520d Over filling issues

    I thought it was the fuel pump nozzle that detects and automatically turns off and "clicks". Are you using the same fuel pump at the fuel station or has this happened in multiple places?

    Yeah as the Speedo will always read higher, even if you have the wrong rear tyres like I have. I go based on GPS / Waze but best to avoid these topics as you can see above

    Trip to drayton manor park and back with a full car. very happy with 58.3mpg given the traffic on M6.

    Yes the LCI models have a different TPMS style, since the style 351's were used for both LCI and Non-LCI its something you need to keep an eye out for
