  1. ZF 6 speed transmission issues

    Yup it's pricey when they go wrong, and your specialist is right to do other things when you are in there. I bailed out of N62 woes when I was faced with a gearbox rebuild at trade in value of the car.
  2. Mobile wheel refurb

    A wipe over the rim with s cloth, mask tyre on the rim and blast with paint. No tyre removal and no dipping no stripping.
  3. Mobile wheel refurb

    ^what Dan said. The mobile fitter that the supplying AUC dealer used to do my 351s wants trained on how to clean a wheel before doing a refurb.
  4. DIY ALLOY REPAIR: THE SAGA BEGINS

    They powder coated them, then painted them? Usually its one or the other but not both. The powder in powder coating is the colour and doesn't need a paint or lacquer/clear coat over it.
  5. A whats it worth ?

    Depends on how over priced the 640d is really. You can look at it as cost to change rather than whats my trade in worth. Trade in I dunno £13k mibbies. What does WBAC say?
  6. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Pretty much. I find it useful for torques and clickable circuit/wiring diagrams.
  7. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Sorry I miss read your post, thinking it was your side repeater.
  8. F07 Suspension settings

    Dealer might have done a software update which has changed things slightly.
  9. DIY ALLOY REPAIR: THE SAGA BEGINS

    Were yours painted or powder coated?
  10. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Try this. Extract from newtis. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f10-535i-lim_201301/repair-manuals/63-lights/63-13-turn-indicators-front/Bz5o1MhU Assuming yours is a pre LCi....
  11. DIY ALLOY REPAIR: THE SAGA BEGINS

    Yup, you put your rims in a burny hot oven (don't touch) to bake on the powder coating. Its a great finish especially if your wheel design means you can see thru the spokes like 351 style wheels.
  12. What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    For less than £8 they are worth a punt. Good shout. Pics would be good and if you can befores and afters to see the difference.
  13. Mobile wheel refurb

    +1 on that, as in £5 more. And that was for powder coating which mobiles can't offer. These guys do not remove the tyre from the rim and have limited cleaning facilities thus you are likely to get over spray from the lacquer on the barrel of the wheel trapping the dirt in under a layer of lacquer. Not good. Its these mobile outfits that rock up at a main dealer and do wheels for them but BMW do the paperwork and warrant the work.
  14. Replacing the grilles

    It was a bloke from Yorkshire that bought them.
  15. 3AC Towbar Pin 9 Permanent Live - or is it?

    Not at all as you were clearly right with how your car behaves, it's just not as in theory how it should behave.
