  1. Couldn't say I've heard a single creak form the dashboard or anything else in my 2012 F10 though, must be a good un! As for will your dealer introduce other creaks, only time will tell, but if they do they'll have to make it good :) Only downside to that is the time the car stays in their shop, and if u need one on the road for work or something I guess.
  2. You've hardly had the car that long, and its been bought as an approved used bmw which comes with a good warranty, in your shoes I'd be in touch with the selling dealer and telling them firmly its annoying the hell out of me and that I want it solved, how they do it is up to them and they'll have a number of steps they have to go through to diagnose/fix but I tend to find they do come good, just maybe not as quickly as they might due to the hoops they have to jump through normally. Also remind them you flagged it up during thew test drive and took on good faith their words about it being just the temp plates. Good luck and keep us posted! A colleague of mine has a similar issue with pesky rattles on a non-BMW used car (think it was a kia or something) and in the end he was able to reject the car for a full refund as they just couldn't fix the rattle despite several attempts. The dealer complied but he did have to be quite assertive.

    ISTA and DPF Regen History - SOLVED

    Either of these for example seem suitable? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ethernet-Interface-Cable-ICOM-Coding/dp/B01F8J2E3S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1526417868&sr=8-1&keywords=enet+bmw or https://www.amazon.co.uk/ENET-OBDII-Coding-3-28-1-ROYALTEC-blue/dp/B07B2HZ64Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1526417868&sr=8-2&keywords=enet+bmw ?

    ISTA and DPF Regen History - SOLVED

    Thanks I had a quick look, how do I know if I need this rheingold version or the ISTA+ version? Also process is straight forward? Is this effectively the same CARLY in what it can do?

    ah right sorry I thought u meant how to get ISTA and so forth, ur a step ahead of me I think BMW say the DPF needs re-fitting at 100k....that's what my dealer told me anyway

    I think for this you need the ISTA software on your laptop and a cable....OR the CARLY BMW gadget and cable(s) I also need to figure out the same and get cracking!

    Hi Matthew, are you sure the software even allows viewing of historical stuff? I tried a quick google or two for you and nothing much of use came up sadly. If I stumbled across something will give you a shout. In related news, I ought to get into the whole ISTA and/or CARLY for BMW band-wagon....have been meaning to do it for a while for the force of a regen, and to read the current DPF clogged state, if it allows that of course!

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    Thanks for the clarification. So my options are, ride it out in the knowledge I have the warranty in case it goes pop, or upgrade before that happens to a 530D or greater....I am feeling an M5 coming along, now to justify it to the misses.

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    As an aside, can someone tell me the sure fire way of knowing if my engine is an N47 or B spec? I suspect its an N47 as its a 2012 car and is the efficient dynamics model. Touch wood, so far so good, but then I do low miles and its currently at about the 60k mark.
  12. If its of any help to OP, there bmw service site seems to be running an offer on brakes and pads....for my car for example it quote about £309 for a rear brake pad and disc service. Doesn't sound that much more than the parts alone going by parts of this thread I skimmed past? Site: https://www.bmw-service.co.uk/ https://www.bmw-service.co.uk/##service-options

    F10 Remote key battery

    Thanks Matthew for confirming the battery type I expected, will order one asap.

    F10 Remote key battery

    Hi Pedro, was pre-empting the purchase of a new battery before I pop the old that's all, to minimise the time the fob goes without power, to limit the chance of any kind of synch issues to the car. Once you pop, what if you cant stop
  15. Dear all, I seen a message pop up recently claiming my key remote battery is low. I am sure this is a DIY job and not an extortionately priced dealer job Does anyone know if doing so risks the key losing its synch with the car? Are there any gotchas basically. Does anyone know exactly what battery I should buy? Is this it --> https://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-CR2450-Lithium-Battery-Blister/dp/B0042KL882/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522325477&sr=8-1&keywords=duracell+2450 While I am at it am tempted to change the other case also, the BMW logo button is completely knackered by other keys and it just a silvery mess now. Am sure there must be some OEM cases on ebay! Thanks again!
