    Tyre Pressure Monitor (RDC) failure

    This. Some modules will work out of the box, others will require coding to that particular car. When BMW replaced my trailer module recently in an effort to fix my towbar, they initially didn't code it to the chassis, but later coded it. The explanation from BMW was that some modules will work without, some will need coding. But until you get the codes read it might not be the module.

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

    Received and payed in the cheque I got from the bodyshop, after I sent them an e-mail pointing out their many F*$k ups when repairing my car. It will more than pay for the replacement sunvisor that they damaged which I'll hopefully collect tomorrow.

    Liking the tints @Mobileman, care to advise the cost? They do add something to the cars appearance and useful when I've got the littl'un on board.

    Rocker Cover Gasket Replacement

    I paid £200 for my right hand bank rocker cover to be replaced by an indie 4 years ago. I would have tacked it myself but my wife was very very pregnant at the time so needed it doing sharpish. Its not a big or massively expensive job.

    Rear seat rattle

    Ah well it's worth trying the easy stuff first. Did you check the underside of the bench seat The plastic ISOfix covers should clip into their housings so should be held rattle free. It is a slightly different set up with the split folding seats. It's not something in the centre armrest? Or in one of the rear door card pockets?

    Farewell F11 Hello G32 6 Series

    Oooh I like your brakes. You will still be well on only your first tankful of Vpower then.

    Rear seat rattle

    I would strip the base of the seat out and see if there is anything obvious. It could be a coin in there. Are all the seatbelts tucked away and the centre belt fixed to its home on the parcel shelf? Are the split seats fully slammed home? The ISOfix mounts should not flex, they are on a strong part of the chassis as they are safety critical.

    Tyre Pressure Monitor (RDC) failure

    First I would Manually check all the tyre pressures as a safety check. That way you can rule out a low pressure tyre. It's not unheard of for some part of the system to fail and it then refuses to work at all It might be simple like a software update rather than a part or module failure. There have been reports of some cars having temper tantrums with parts of the onboard servicing info and BMW usually fix easily enough with a software update at the next service.

    Farewell F11 Hello G32 6 Series

    Interested to hear how you think it handles with the softer compound tyres on it. You will thank yourself for putting polish on them before they went on as it will be so much easier to clean them in the spring before their summer hibernation. Cant believe Mrs A unpacked them and laid them out in her dining room. My Mrs would have left them outside on the pallet!

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    There is more chance of meeting the tooth fairy! BMW have used a similar design on the G30/1 so it's a weak point for the next model too. Perhaps the G30/1 replacement will have it sorted. Now that you know about it, take it off once a year to clean out. It will need to be treated as part of your routine maintenance.

    Parking car for 3 weeks. Any precautions?

    Yes, you are right, its to limit no load on the engine at high rpms. Local garage told me it can damage valve gear (drive/train/rockers/followers etc) revving with no real load on the engine components. My E60 would only rev to 5000 rpm in P or N. I have done the same test in my F10 but I can't recall what the rev limit was.
  15. How did you get on, have you had it fitted yet? Our washing machine is like Triggers Broom.
