  8. EML came on grrr

    530d 2010 f10, had a look today tbh couldnt even get the electrical connections to seperate from the i take wtf not seen connectors like those
  9. EML came on grrr

    so i have been doing around 1k miles a week for the past 8 weeks, the car has been faultless for the past 2.5 years, there was no loss of power. Luckily i happend to have a code reader in the boot and that produced code "P046c", looking that up came up the below post https://www.obd-codes.com/p046c pretty handy with a spanner, so my plan was to take off the EGR valveand either De-coke (the old fashioned way rather than with sprays) Block off with a solid gasket - (unsure if this will produce EML also) So next question, does the code seem right & anyone have a how to? quick googling suggests that the EGR is water cooled? TIA

  11. Got rid of the Runflats

    not missing this at all, i take it F11's are not staggered judging by prices of tyres above?
  12. Got rid of the Runflats

    yeah pretty much what the kwikfit guy told me, i was always under the impression that runflats took more psi?
  13. Got rid of the Runflats

    on another note, what psi is recommended for non runflats on an f10?
  14. Got rid of the Runflats

    for those deciding whether or not to change & waste 6-7mm tread i did this for my fronts, not regretting it at all. however for those looking to go 50/50, i went rears first and the car was not great found allot more steering input needed. I did rears first.
  15. Got rid of the Runflats
