    Whereabouts are you based? I know 2 people who fit very good aftermarket alarms - Kams Ice - London Automotive Solutions - Birmingham
  2. Hi Guys, Currently on the look out for a E60 525d or 530d M Sport for around £6500/£7000 ish... Although one I seen above my budget for £7,700 was a 2008 525D M Sport in my Grey with 86k on the clock (1 former owner).. Looking towards £7500-£8000 mark, I've noticed I could actually pick up a 520d or 525d SE F10 with circa 130k on the clock. Which one would you guys go for? F10 SE or E60 M Sport?

    High Mileage E60 LCI Advice

    Thanks for the replies, bit re-assuring to hear!
  4. Hi Guys, Posting on behalf of my Uncle who is in the market for a LCI E60 525d or 530d and looking to spend around £6500 with no more than around 120,000 on the clock. Is there any major issues that he should be looking out for? I'm assuming these also suffer from the swirl flaps issue which I had blanked out of my E46. Also what about changing the Gearbox oil? - I thought these were sealed for life? Anything else to look out for?
  5. Hi Guys, Have a 2011 BMW 525D SE with Bluetooth but unable to stream music which is what I would like to do with Spotify. Any recommendations in regards to what to use?
  6. So I'm looking at either a 530d or 535d (swaying more towards the 535d) but won't be looking towards end of the year. I was thinking of getting one between September and December but I know the new 5 series will be out in January...is it worth holding out till January time? The F10 is still between 17k and 20k depending on what I go for but not sure on how much they will actually drop as they seem quite good in regards to depreciation!

    530d or 535d/ Performance Kit

    I'm averaging around 47mpg mixed driving!

    530d or 535d/ Performance Kit

    I do probably around 15,000-18,000 a year. Currently driving one of those 320d efficiency dynamics. very boring to drive but it does get around 600 miles on a full tank!
  9. I've joined this forum as I'll be looking to buy a 5 series towards the end of the year. I started looking at 520d's but now I'm only looking at 530d's and 535d's! Can anybody who has a 535d let me know how many miles you average out on a 535d? I would love the 535d but I'm a little bit concerned about the economy and it might defeat the object of buying a diesel! I'll probably end up remapping them, either one I get! I do see some white 5 series with a 'm performance kit'....but seems to be very rare? Is this something that can easily be added after?

Still have an e90 320d at the moment which is completely standard but I'll share a pic of my weekend toy
