    F11 530D Tuning options

    You shouldnt even need to remove the ECU now, I'm sure these can be done via the OBD port.
  2. Noticed the 2018-2 maps had popped on the download manager so just finished installing them, fitting and coding the 6WB cluster tomorrow.
  3. I had a RFT repaired last year , it was in for a service when the puncture was found and BMW insisted you can't repair runflats and quoted me £280 for a new tyre. Told them to leave it and took it to my local garage I always use for tyres and they laughed at the "can't be fixed comment" and had it repaired for £10. Had no issues with it so far.
  4. It looks good but personally I am always for getting rid of the badge as the back looks much cleaner, the twin pipes are enough of a badge.
  5. I think I have a single spare alloy cap, pm me your address if you want and I'll stick it in an envelope on Monday.
  6. Didn't take any should have taken a video with both blinking when i had changed one side for comparison. Will take a couple of pics tomorrow. Although fairly sure I ordered them after someone else linked them and posted photos in this very thread.
  7. Swapped back over to the summer wheels (351's) and took a moment to install the LED indicator bulbs that have been in my drawer at work for 3 months. I should have done it earlier they are much brighter and look so much better not casting that bloody orange tango across the headlight.

    7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Mini were insisting on a £475 delivery charge (to the dealer not to even to our house) when my other half bought her new mini the other year. I just flat out refused to pay it and said we would walk away from the sale if it wasnt removed. Needles to say they removed it pretty quickly.

    Samsung S8 with BMW apps

    I forgot to say if Siri worked then Google Assistant should work as well. Just make sure its set as your default assistant (I havnt attempted to try bixby) and that it is useable from your lock screen. I have set my phone to stay unlocked when connected to the cars bluetooth.

    Samsung S8 with BMW apps

    It is a 65 plate, I have Pro Media and have coded EBT but it worked the same even before coding it.

    Samsung S8 with BMW apps

    I use Spotify fine through USB or Bluetooth on my Galaxy S8, have generally found compatibility much better than my previous iPhone 6, especially with messages and emails. Only thing that has been slightly poorer is the BMW Connected Drive App which seems to get updated earlier on the iPhone.
  12. If you are ever up near Aberdeen fire me a PM, I don't mind doing a bit of coding for forum members, what kind of things are you looking to code? Can't help you with the mapping though.
  13. Cheers for this but mine is indeed LCi so its the stupid halogen bulb they fit in the headlight instead of the much nicer pre LCi indicator, I used the guide but mine only twist so far by hand and feel like I would need to resort to pliers to get enough grip to force them more.
  14. Tried to change my dead driver side indicator bulb but for the life of me I could not get it out, twisted the caps far but then it wouldn't budge any further or pull out. Any tips or am I just being soft trying not to break something.
  15. Can you quote for the lower trim part on the rear nearside door in gloss black. My car is a 2015 BMW F10 and comes with the "S760A High gloss shadow line" trim.
