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

    Snow foamed using bilt hamber auto foam and pressure washed off. Applied soft 99 fusso wax last week, didn't have time for a full wash, but the autofoam did an amazing job. For a snow foam n rinse only
  2. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Driving along this morning, and the flippin drivers wiper came off. Typical for it to happen on a day like today pouring it down on the way to be somewhere. £80 I wasn't expecting to fork out today
  3. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Fitted a new pair of Goodyear eagle f1s on the rear spiders, old tyres were badly worn, fitted a pair of eagle f1s on the front last month so hopefully should be ok tyres wise for a while!

    pics please or we don't believe you
  5. thanks for the replies, I suppose my main question was on an 7/8 year old car does it really matter where it's been serviced as long as it's been done properly come resale time. I might try a few other Indys as using an ECP discount the oil and filters came to £102, strangely Bm TECH won't allow you to bring your own oil+and filters in
  6. I've an 09 525d bought with FBMWSH from the same dealer, I've used the same dealer for an oil service (£175) since owning the car it's due a major service soon, (Engine oil service with microfilter, air filter & fuel filter) bmw value service site advertises this as £523. A local Indy (BM TECH Manchester) do this for £302 using Petronas oil, Bosch/Man filters and BMW oil filter. when getting quotes for an oil change in the past I've found the Bmw value line not much dearer than Indys so ive gone with bmw, but a £200 premium, is it worth it?

    handy little feature the mirror fold coding, another one I found useful was coding out the voltage check for the reverse led's i fitted, they used the strobe like a police car on start on before which is a bit embarssing
  8. E60 525d M-Sport Brake disc size

    for the extra stopping power is the any point in beefing up the rear brakes also? is there anything wrong with just going with bigger brakes on the front and leaving the rears as they are?
  9. E60 525d M-Sport Brake disc size

    in a similar position, im looking to remap my 525d lci, inquired about beefing up the brakes but was told the calipers would also need changing, i think i'll see how the car feels after the remap
  10. BMW main dealer stickers?

    I removed the Williams stickers when I bought mine. much cleaner look. I'm also picky about any writing at the bottom of the number plate. I didn't mind the Williams text under the free plates the dealer supplied for my private plate, but I wouldn't want something like bobs bits or Andy's autos cheapening the look of a prestige motor . I don't mind Halfords plates too much as there logo is a little hologram no overly obvious
  11. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    how much did the rear set of good years set you back? are they on 19's?
  12. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    i just took delivery of a front pair of these for spider alloys. I'll let you know what there like once on
  13. so much jealously, wish I'd not viewed this post now haha enjoy
  14. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    received the carly adapter today and bought the app to regen the dpf. not took it on a run yet for Regen but I have after nearly 2 years of e60 ownership managed to code the mirrors to fold/unfold when locking/unlocking which was worth the money alone. also coded the passenger mirror to tilt when reverse is engaged
