    Picked up my 520d Luxury

    Welcome along! It has to be said that is one very highly specced F10, must be an absolute pleasure to drive. The forum is a great place for answering any queries, lots of helpful chaps on hand. Hope the car serves you well for many miles to come.

    BMW EGR "Technical Campaign"

    Does anyone know if the 245PS N57 is affected by the EGR cooler failures? I can't say I've noticed any symptoms in the 3 years I've owned my 2010 model.

    Self ignition

    Glad to hear no one was hurt, however the owner must be pretty shaken up. Very disconcerting.

    Thoughts on the F01 7'er

    AFAIK the N57 (as found in the F01) doesn't appear to face the same swirl flaps troubles as the M57 following a new design, but intake manifolds are prone to excessive carbon build up - more of an issue on vehicles that have endured multiple short journeys. Other than that these motors are generally quite robust.

    DPF Regen every 300 miles

    A high mileage DPF will likely be filled with ash so the real capacity falls - could be the cause for more frequent regens.

    First world F10-series problems

    Its thirst for washer fluid - the headlight washers do not help in this regard!

    First world F10-series problems

    Lack of folding rear seats as standard No lumbar support as standard
  8. Agreed, just enquired on the cost of new plugs and it came in to ~£300 so not the end of the world. The F10 has been faultless otherwise in the time I've owned it. The G30's seem to be carrying quite a premium over F10's atm which is a shame as would love to properly experience a petrol BMW before they're legalised off the roads. Perhaps its time to jump in to an F10 M5!
  9. Oh I wish! Recently had the house renovated otherwise an M5 would already be sitting in the driveway! Wouldn't want one without a warraty mind, but they are tempting at £29k for 40k miles on AUC. Not sure the other half would approve however.
  10. In fairness I've not yet shopped around regarding the glow plugs but a quick google search suggests it should be in the region of £300 all in, which is less than I expected. However I was less impressed when looking at tyres where the cheapest I found were £143 per corner; may consider non RFTs / part-worns if these prices are anything to go by.
  11. I know that both Birmingham and Southampton have recently proposed low emission zones similar to that in London so its only time till every other town follows suit. If I were to get rid of the car now I'd hope there wouldn't be as hard a hit in depreciation as there would be if I sold it in say 2-3 years time when these ULEZ's become increasingly commonplace. I suspect big diesel's won't be all that attractive by then...
  12. Thanks chaps, however am now debating whether to get rid of it or not what with the recent ULEZ proposals and 2040 diesel ban. As this is a 2010 model it only adheres to the Euro 5 regs so would be subject to charges within these zones. It also needs a bit spent on it, including 6 glow plugs and controller, tyres all around and an oil service. Just thinking what my options are ATM and whether its worth spending a bit and keeping it a bit longer, or if I'd be better off trading it in for something newer/cleaner.
  13. Gave it a wash a couple of days ago - love Deep Sea Blue when clean, but doesn't work so well during the colder months IMO... (excuse the iPhone picture quality)

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    In response to the vid - all I have to say is holy f**k! Would give M5's a real hard run for their money thats for sure! Wow.
  15. A "one off" SL350 AMG...
