  3. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Yeah had a few bits done! Been saving for a while to get the gearbox done. Good call but I'll be changing anyway as I want to do a suspension & bushes refresh next & sound system & wheels list goes on........ [emoji28] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Engine oil changed used Millers XF Longlife C3. 3rd oil change in 2 years since owning the car, 25k in total mileage. Red turbo boost hose changed, original was letting by. Replaced with the new Forge hose. Had the gearbox oil changed, car is on 95k I know this subject is debated loads but I thought I'd get it done. Oil that came out was black, well used, oil that went it was golden. Genuine ZF kit from Sussex Auto Parts. Updated gearbox software using Xhp flashtool to stage 3, normal D is soo much better & the sports manual changes are defo quicker & throttle blip on downshifts is cool, well worth the money. Going to change anti roll bars next, rear is corroding. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  5. xHP Flashtool for 6HP Boxes - cable compatability

    Morning, I'm going to be doing the same as Mashed, xHP flashtool. Can you confirm the cable(s) & costs required to get from my phone to the Obd2 port. I have a Samsung S8 which has a larger charging port than my Samsung S6 but does have an adapter to go back to the smaller size. Sorry have absolutely no idea about cables etc...! Thanks Dan Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. Forge Boost Hose

    Just checked Forge's website, they're now doing the red boost hose. www.forgemotorsport.co.uk/Boost_Hose_for_BMW_535D__635D_--product--1605.html I know like myself there was some other guys interested in this. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. DPF - remove or not?

    I've had mine out for a year now, no issues regarding MOT, 0.22 on the smoke test but I do only run V Power diesel. I cannot comment whether that makes a difference but that's what I use. I do have a problem of addtional boost tripping the larger turbo out at high speed / flat acceleration but this may be down to a leak I have between the turbo & intercooler, will fix this 1st before further investigation. Basically, I'm happy with it out, now I've moved I do do a lot of short journeys so have no worries about it blocking. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Rederence the pipe in the link mine is also letting by, Forge have an upgraded option for the 3 series but are developing one for E60 5 series as it needs to be slightly different. I must've spoken to then about a month ago when they said it would be available in 4 - 6 weeks. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
