  2. i don't suppose they're the same as an e38 by any chance?, i have a decent pair of photocromatic mirrors in my workshop,
  3. hi all, i thought i'd take a look at my pdc which has never worked, you just get a long beeep when you put it in reverse, so i thought i'd do the listening for ticking thing with it sat in reverse and it seems only 1 out of the 4 on the rear bumper is working, and none in the front, is there a certain way to check the fronts or am i unlucky enough for all 4 to be knackered?, cheers, steve
  4. lovely thanks
  5. hi everyone, could anyone tell me what type of oil i should put in my diff?, 530 sport non lsd, thanks in advance, steve
  6. hi all, i was looking to get a set of roof bars for my saloon as my bike rack is ruining the paint on my boot, i've seen thule ones on ebay that claim to be genuine bmw, is this correct?, thanks, steve
  7. i thought i'd update on this, i haven't touched the car since wednesday night, i went to start it today and the battery was too low to start, so i assume somehow the bluetooth had some sort of drain?, anyway i dissconected the battery, gave it a quick charge and touch wood everything is back to normal
  8. it seems to be on the drivers side, could that be?
  9. hi all, you fix one thing then another random pops up!!!, i paired my new phone and now the bloody stereo won't turn on, all the computer and nav work but nothing, it's almost like the left side of the stereo has konked out, even the hands free doesn't have any sound, has anybody any ideas??, cheers, steve

  11. i also run 19's, looks awesome and drives lovely, obviously you have to watch the potholes but i wouldn't have it any other way
  12. right, i apologize for revisiting an old thread but frankly this is getting on my wick!!, i've been under the car again today and i literally can't pinpoint this clatter, i've done the old screwdriver against my ear thing and the only place i can pick up the noise is both cats??, any ideas??, cheers, steve
  13. hi all, my first thoughts were that it as coming from the front, but now i'm not so sure, it seems to be maybe coming from the rear or the engine / bell housing, do they have a dmf??
