  1. I have fitted many clutches and flywheels before and never had a problem with Luk, Valeo or Sachs. I have had issues with ecp though sending kits that have been fitted etc. I now use allparts.
  2. Thanks for the reply. I done the same an tucked the wiring down in the corners it's definitely not touching the heat sink on the led housing. Thanks
  3. Hi everyone, sorry for another angel eye question I just can't find an answer to my question. I have just just installed this Cree h8 kit on to my car that has adaptive xenons. http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/No-Error-H8-40W-CREE-LED-Angel-Eye-Halo-Light-Bulb-BMW-E82-E90-E92-E60-X5-X6-Z4-/201348571466 All is good and working. My question is I was unsure where to place all the resistor packs etc that are attached to the bulbs, at the moment I have feed them down in to the headlight. I was concerned about heat damage so left them on for a while and they did not get hot. Has anyone had issues with this before or am I worrying over nothing? Many thanks
  4. Hi everyone, i just wanted to make you aware my dad is a transmission specialist in nw London. He has been going for 30+ years. He does all manufactures both manual and automatic. He is very much in to BMW and Mercedes Benz. He does not have a website as he mainly does work within the motortrade. ( a few reviews online if you look around) If anyone has any transmission issues and want some advice/ quotes give him a call. Tell him you have come through the BMW forum as he's a BMW fan himself. Contact details diamond transmissions ltd. 2 minerva road Park Royal nw10 6hj 0208 4531629 ask for Roy
  5. Lovely thanks for the info
  6. Thanks for the link. Is this the same procedure for an lci car though? I already have a set of trim tools so hopefully won't damage anything.
  7. Hi everyone, i have tried multiple searches but cant find any answers to my question. I need to replace my heated seat/pdc button on my 09 e61. I can't find any guides and don't want to damage anything. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Im replacing the buttons as the coating has worn out (annoys me every time I get in the car and look at it) thanks in advance and sorry if this has been covered before I just can't find it!
  8. Yes haven't had a good play with it but it all seems to be that bit sharper and quicker. Maybe it's a placebo effect but it's working!
  9. I believe you a right it is Mobil oil. I was a Vauxhall technician many years ago and this oil was always well respected then.
  10. I used gm long life 5w30 LL04 approved. Good oil and cheap
  11. Hi everyone, just an update on this, I took my to Technosport BMW in north London. He was able to update all my control units without doing the dde and clearing the remap. My USB stick has now uploaded and I have the 2017 maps. Thanks again for the info

  13. I'm no expert but the smooth running code you have is more than likely an injector causing your car to run rough. If it's over fuelling this may block the dpf up quicker and I would imagine it's not regening as you have codes for glow plugs which I think can stop a regen. I have also been told the throttle actuator code can stop a regen but I'm not a hundred per cent on this. I'm no expert so take this with a pinch of salt but I would carry out a smooth running test and check your glow plugs and controller. I think rail pressure monitoring can come up if the engine is not cranking at full speed as the fuel pump can't build up the correct pressure. May be worth checking your battery as you also have an ibs code.
  14. Thanks grizzle. Bmw said they would update all my modules for £60 to latest software which is fine but I just don't want to lose the remap. When i asked them if they could just do the sat nav they said no. That's 2 dealers I have tried both said the same.
  15. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get my cic updated around Herts? Thanks
