    520d M47 help

    1 - This could be a multitude of things. It could be the MAF sensor, MAP sensor, the boost sensor or sticking vanes in the turbo amongst others. It would be worth plugging in to some decent diagnostics to see if that throws anything to point you in the right direction. It may also be linked to your temperature sensor. I've had that on a Vauxhall before that thought it was -30. Revs increased and it didn't drive nicely. 2 - Definitely. 3 - Below (I think from memory) 4 degrees, the A/C will not turn on. So picking up a low ambient temperature will cause the compressor to not run. Being a 163 it probably won't have a DPF. 99% don't. Is there any soot in the exhaust pipe? 4 - Again from memory, the clutch has to be fully depressed for starting. I may be wrong on that one though.
  2. Bump for some of the new guys that might not have scrolled back this far!

    OBD2 Port Draining Battery

    This would be the best solution.

    I broke it. I was off work today and was in North Wales (around Llyn Brennig if there's any locals on here) heading down a little 1 car wide one way to a visitors centre. There was a cyclist coming up the middle of the road towards me who moved to his left. Great I thought he's stopping by the gate to let me pass which is probably wise seen as he's going the wrong way down a one way road. But no. He moved in then swerved out again so I had to move quickly to the left so I didn't knock him off. Just brushed the bushes which was fine but bounced over a sodding big rock in the undergrowth which has put a nice long scuff down the sideskirt and knocked the tracking out. Despite the sodding loud bang the cyclist didn't even stop. I have no beef with cyclists. I love riding myself. But sometimes they make my blood boil.

    Ah one day. I'll be able to afford one. Our stage 1 on those makes 680BHP! They clear 700 with the cats out! I think I'm happy with it. It's nigh on smokeless, it pulls sodding hard, boost is reasonable and I am still able to retain the standard boost pipes and keep boost just under 3.0bar. It just drives nicely but it's quick. I'll stick it on a rolling road now and see what it does, even if it only makes 460BHP I'd take that. I'd rather have a smooth smokeless 460 than a smokey not particularly nice to drive 500bhp. Maybe I'll be surprised though. Who knows! I'll post figures when I get it done.

    Lowering an E60

    If you want to go slightly lower, the H&R springs drop more than the Eibachs - they say 35mm drop from standard not Msport height, but they seem to drop a touch more. A little stiff but the car really grips and goes on them.

    Send me your mod and ori and I'll see what I can find for you the turbos should handle 2.1bar or higher if you're brave. LCI turbos in good condition will handle 2.4bar.

    Lol this is the third gear suitable road not the fourth gear one! On the plus side of now pulls harder from 4000-5000rpm than it does 3000-4000! I will get round to sorting a video out eventually!
