  1. Thank you. I meant that I don't have tweeters in the rear doors - I've found the ones in the roof. So the centre speaker is normal with 676? As I said - the sound is good!
  2. Hello all My 2010 f11 has option code 676 - business loudspeaker system. This I believe gives me tweeters in the doors and an amp in the boot. However - it turns out I also have a centre speaker in the dash. See the photo attached. Should this be there, or has someone been tweaking? Overall I think the sound is pretty good! I don't have speakers in the rear doors. Thanks all.
  3. I think I'll probs get the service done at BMW and use Indy for anything else.
  4. It's a 2011 F11 530d. I need to get the key read apparently to see what it needs. Could be up to £600 at BMW!
  5. Hi all How important is full BMW history? Our 530d is due a service and up until now has been serviced at BMW. We have a very good specialist Indy just up the road and I'm considering using him for the service. Would that stop me subsequently getting a BMW extended warranty? Anything else to consider? Thanks all.
  6. Phew. Thanks!
  7. I checked mine this morning and the car rose up a few cm at the rear after starting. I take it that is not normal? The car had been parked since last night. No error codes or strange noises. If I buy non BMW part, is there any difference in ride/handling?
  8. I'm interested in this too. Is the eBay chap legit or is it a slightly grey area? are BMW likely to get upset if I use one of his codes?
  9. Thank you - very good of you. And that is the file for a 2010 build car? V much appreciated.
  10. Thanks very much - let me know how you get on with your camera. I have been pleasantly surprised that the sat nav does accept 7 digits - I guess someone has upgraded it. Basically, if driven sensibly and smoothly, it's very economical. Driven hard and it's not! Only other niggle concerns the retracting luggage cover. Sometimes it smoothly goes back when I open the boot, other times it sticks before suddenly snapping back. The little catches inside the car move up and down as they should, but the cover doesn't always go with it. I'd also quite like to get the Gracenote database updated. Overall, it's a fabulous car.
  11. We picked up the car yesterday. So far - loving it. Not as economical yet as I had hoped but have been enjoying the acceleration! Only issue I've found is one of the bumper cameras at the front is a bit blurry - might look at replacing that. Getting to grips with idrive etc. Need to tweak a few things and get the hang of how it works. Happy days!
  12. Well we bought it! One of the salesmen was a bit slimey, but overall happy with the deal. Impossible to check the aircon. iphone music worked perfectly via usb. Tailgate also worked as did all the cameras. picking it up on Thursday!!
  13. Yes that's right. BMW history since then I believe.
  14. I guess that means it will have been looked after reasonably well?
  15. Thanks for all the replies. Anything in particular to check when I see it tomorrow? It's just had an MOT at BMW with no advisories so I assume tyres at least are ok.
