    Phew! Don't mess with it, just take it back. Good luck and keep us posted.

    F11/F10 530d Oil burning

    My 3.0d f11 never used a drop, my A7 on the other hand...

    Advice needed - Drivetrain Malfunction

    If it's a private sale you have no recourse other than goodwill (unlikely, although I once paid towards a repair years ago) if it's a trade sale then you have a min of 90 days.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Says it must have fizzed over as there was very little splash, the cup holder was nearly full though...

    First world F10-series problems

    Agreed, but guess they don't want them rubbing on the paintwork, lots of other marques are similar.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    Depends on the small print, more often than not yes on a 'non fault' accident, when the Mrs was rear ended (fnar) I held out for an estate as hers was, we were given a 508 iirc, when they dropped it off it had a flat tyre, I called them and they swapped it for a Seat Exeo. The first day the young girls insurer called us and practically begged us to allow them to arrange the car, I guess this is cost limitation on their behalf due to all the "Uncle Jamals Claimz R us" outfits banging on consequential costs.

    Rear suspension drops randomly

    No need for ptfe but it won't do any harm.

    No, she's right, they are abrasive and that's how they work. We use them on a few things but you are best testing on a small area first.

    just found leaks from front of car

    That's the aircon pipe as suspected. The cap is where they charge the gas from. Local indi would be my choice, if only for a quote first.

    A tale of woe about my F10's tail

    As above the main thing is you're OK. It's only a car, an insured asset. I always dreaded the body shop in the silver car, a real nightmare to match. The Mrs was run into in 2014, within a day or two we started getting the phone calls about personal injury. Not sure who gave her details, possibly the insurance pleb or maybe the hire company. She did have some soft tissue damage and saw her Dr. But she never claimed as she said it was slight and she'd be lying if she said it was anything other than a bit uncomfortable. Also the girl who ran into her was devastated and only a few years older than our kids so she said she hoped karma would pay her back if it was ever one of ours. (not likely and there's no such thing as karma imo...) Even the body shop we chose were on the take, I asked if they could spray the front bumper whilst it was in and they had mixed the paint and I'd pay separately. The guy said he'd just add it to the quote. I insisted that I paid (c£150 iirc so very cheap imo for a bumper off job) I think he got our stance. Everyone's on the take, not realising who ends up paying. Hope you get the repair done to your satisfaction, but I don't envy you one bit, I know I'd be a mare with them unless it was 100%.

    Saddle soap is the better choice for leather, but I must admit for the car I use baby wipes.
