  1. That's an beautiful monster, @Mick. Must admit I'm a little envious. You've had an absolute shocker parking it, mind. I guess that's how it's done from now on, eh?
  2. Isn't that where his dog's laid an egg?
  3. I got one earlier this year, just in case. It was only 4 euros. They sent it within a week. https://www.certificat-air.gouv.fr/en
  4. I wish I'd bought a Touring. With a pano sunroof.
  5. Good work, fella. It looks great. I guarantee you'll enjoy it for years.
  6. You can see where the technology is headed (pardon the pun)
  7. Haha! Yep, this is how I first found out (well, kerb and hedge but y'know)
  8. Apologies if this ought to be a separate topic but I think it's relevant. I got the below from another forum regarding the DSC button (it's all in the manual, though): DSC ON (default mode) : all nannies enabledDTC (Dynamic Traction Control, from SPORT+ or single press of button) : ASC (automatic stability control) and FDR (driving dynamics control) function with modified thresholds.DSC OFF (hold down button for five seconds) : ASC and FDR disabled, ADB (automatic brake differential) enabled
  9. It's a bit of a gimmick as it doesn't save any button presses - Press sport mode, then press Traction control off = Sport+ mode vs Press sport mode, then press sport + mode = Sport+ mode.
  10. This is starting to feel like some kind of urban myth - BMW folklore. My car (Sept 2015 build) simply does not do this.
  11. The 525 above is in M Sport as opposed to SE trim for the 530. Mainly cosmetic enhancements like sportier body kit and bigger wheels as standard. A good place to find out exactly what the differences are is honestjohn.co.uk
  12. Yep. Lights F10, tailgate glass F11 as standard. Apparently can be coded to do something else if you want. The battery in my previous F10's keyfob needed replacing after I'd had it for about 6 months so that tallies with the 2 years from new theory. Haven't had current car long enough to confirm yet.
  13. Really? I thought the timing chain issue related to pre-March 2011 N47 engines. The 525d got the switch from 3.0 to 2.0 units post September 2011 afaik, so surely timing chain no longer a problem?
  14. Good to see another cinnamon brown interior on here @Mick, by the way.
  15. Thank you, @Oilburner, posts as detailed and comprehensive as this are very much appreciated and not just by forum members. Exactly the sort of thing people want to see when researching a particular subject. Cheers! (I extend my thanks to anyone else who also done similar )
