  1. What he said above ^^ Oh ! And they never washed it properly! And they never emptied the ash tray when they vac'd it Did not need the health check in the end as apparently he said my cars perfect
  2. Had this done by a guy I used last year to polish my Halogens. He's mobile but obviously only Bristol and South West. Most body shops will do this for around £50. I paid £60 because he came to me at my works and I was impressed with his work last year
  3. Had my headlights polished today There was a burn/acid mark on the drivers side lamp. Bought a 3m kit to polish it out but couldn't quite get it out so got the professionals in ! Finally happy with my retro fitted Xenons after spending quite a bit of money on them.
  4. Not sure linky is working so Item 122529987330
  5. Just a heads up on this as I know they are bloody expensive from BMW ! Un-damaged OE ones are as rare as hens teeth. Dont bother searching for the other side from the same seller as I've nabbed it https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122529987330
  6. Booked mine in today for next Thursday. Complimentary car wash, vacuum and health check included ! Bricking it over the health check though (it's my ocd) probably pick it up from them to tell me it needs a zillian squid spent on it
  7. Had mine today Wonder if I can get them to fit me a paddle shift steering wheel
  8. I'm going to buy both ! Its only 15 odd squid so no big deal. @RosieE39/2 Are you saying I can code the cold check off but still have the bulb out error if I have a bulb out ? Im a bit skeptical of a whistle and bells scanner AND programmer for £5 ! Anyways it will take almost a month to arrive so I'll buy the Hids Direct one in the meantime and see how I get on. Cheers for the input
  9. Yes Dan tried that. Trawled through loads of BMW sites last night and apparently it's a commen problem ! On one site (American based) they did mention you can buy a resistor pack (also hella) that will cure this and fool the auto check into thinking the bulbs are ok. Trouble is I cannot find anywhere in the UK that sells these
  10. Well I swooped over ballasts left to right no difference. Swooped both ballasts out for my spare ones no difference 'Check low beam' every other switch on. Switching lights on or off no difference Sometimes it comes on the minute I ign on, sometimes after I switch the lights on. All 4 ballasts I've tried are igniting every time and I'm so happy it's sooo bright but it's annoying having the bloody error light 50% of the time. I'm going to double check the connectors on the back of the headlights tomorrow but pretty sure every one of them has clicked in and is secure.
  11. Thats good to hear ! Just need to find someone now then in Bristol or surrounding area with the correct software.
  12. Yes oem ballasts Sometimes it comes on with the ign then goes out when I switch the lights on but most times it comes on and stays on
  13. Removed my old Halogens and retro fitted some Xenons but now I get a dash light saying low beam out every other time I switch ign on. My Xenons are working perfectly But how do I get round the dash display warning ? Is this something that can be coded out ? Can I buy some kind of resistor that convinces the autochrck everything's fine ?
  14. Replaced both boots today. The one nearest the engine was an absolute pita to remove due to the limited space to get to the jubilee clip ! Turns out the split that I thought was in the first boot is more like a graze and doesn't fully penetrate the rubber. Reset the codes, got about half way home from the garage and ping eml light back on again grrr ! Looks like a painstaking and time consuming job to trace which one (if any) of my vac lines has a split. Does anyone have a schematic showing me which and where the rest of the vac pipes are ? Could this be a sensor ? Have got a very slight misfire on idle. Taco is rock steady but can definitely 'feel' it through the pedal.
  15. Hi Phil, had a few problems fitting the intake boot to my '39 today ! The air box side of the intake on the boot is a good 5-7mm+ bigger than the one already on my car. We cut the clamping (where the jubilee clip goes) band off and had to use it as a reducer in order to get a decent fit on the one you supplied but I'm not sure this has formed a good enough seal even with the jubilee done up !
