  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Lovely thanks for the info
  5. 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!
  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 a 2009 e61 535d. I have the pro sat nav with 2009 maps. I brought a 2017 map update and fsc code from Bmw and have tried to update the maps via the USB port in glovebox but nothing happens? It should start straight away I thought? I have plugged my I phone in to the USB port but can't get it to play music through it but it will charge? My only other aux point that I know of is in the rear of the car and is a 3.5mm jack plug which does work. My i drive only shows aux front on the menu nothing about USB? Can an anyone help me please? Thanks
  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!

  10. 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.
  11. I used gm long life 5w30 LL04 approved. Good oil and cheap
  12. 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

  14. Hi everyone, im new to the forum and have tried searching but not come up with anything conclusive and hoped you could all help me. I have recently purchased an e61 09 lci 535d. I am really enjoying the car. I have removed swirl flaps, replaced all vac lines with silicon pipe and checked running temps and all are good. I would like like to remap my car and was thinking about getting the dpf gutted. It's currently not causing any issues but my daily journey involves 10/12 mins motorway journey and 20 mins of traffic, I'm thinking this is not a long enough period for dpf regen? Am i stupid to remove the dpf or should I buy a bypass pipe for cats and dpf and have it remapped? I have a friendly mot tester.... I also plan on mapping out the egr. What are yours thoughts please what with the diesel emissions talk in the press etc. Thanks in advance Dean
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get my cic updated around Herts? Thanks
  18. Yes I need to speak to them and ask if they can reflash my car again if the remap goes. I just worry that tinkering with the electronics to much may cause me headaches that I don't have at the moment. It would be nice just to get the cic software updated
  19. Where did you get your cic updated? Bmw want to update the whole car!
  20. I have also heard a forced regen is bad and requires an oil change etc afterwards but I can't understand why? All your doing is asking the car to perform a regen like it does itself? Does anyone know any different?
  21. Thanks for the info, can I ask where are you based and who did you use? BMW have told me they need to update my whole cars software. I'm worried I will lose my remap though as I only want the cic updated. When yours failed the first time do you mean it bricked the module and was then recovered it is it a case of once it's bricked it's game over? Sorry bit slow on the tech talk!
  22. BMW called me back and have told me they will update my whole cars software in a day and that should sort my problem. Im pretty sure I will lose my remap though if they do that. I said I thought it was possible just to update the cic but it was like talking to a brick wall. Can anyone shed and light on this please?
  23. Thanks for the reply. Fubnily enough my phone pairs to my car with Bluetooth fine it's just when I plug it in with a USB cable it doesn't. I have brought a genuine usb from BMW so would like to use that as its easier to update than transferring the files to a DVD. I am waiting for a price from them for updating my cic unit. Do do you know what the difference between cic firmware and software is? Thanks
  24. Hi thanks for the link and info. I I do not have the tick or the i symbol and I only have 5 digit postcode. My USB stick with latest maps is genuine from BMW with an fsc code but the car does not recognise me putting the USB stick in the glovebox. Im waiting for a price from BMW to update the cic software which will hopefully allow my cic unit to see the USB stick. Does this sound about right?
  25. Does anyone know where I can get my cic updated around the Watford area or can Bmw just do this module?
