    Clean MOT and power steering fixed!

    Mine just past it’s MoT..no advisory’s...£24 total cost...sometimes I love my 535d..spent a small fortune last year so I did have high hopes of a few trouble free ones

    Vicious circle, dealing with mechanics is

    New Wheeler Dealers

    The oz wheels always looked beautiful I thought
  4. I’ve seen this on mine on the very odd occasion over the last 6years,never lost any coolant so assumed it’s fine..

    That flashed up on mine the other week when the window I tried to wind down was frozen...went away and never came back
  6. My third brake was stuck on,when I’ve went in the boot it’s wet as hell,the carpet only as far as o can tell,I’ll pull it all out tomorrow..everything else is fine..I pulled the fuse on the light...Wednesday before gets heavy snow seems to have move the seal from window to boot

    Gearbox fault?

    That’s a lot like mine,also at 70mph as an example if I gently accelerate I can see and here the revs raise the mpg gauge drop but doesn’t move away as should,until it feels like it’s dropped a gear and away
  8. I’ve got brand new pumps and mine is piss weak aswell...is there a filter under the wheel arch ?? Not actually in the pumps

    DPF removed and new MOT checks May 2018

    Do glow plugs affect DPF regeneration?

    They do yes,they pulse through the regen process as far as I’m aware..

    Gearbox fault?

    All vac hoses changed recently for oem.. funny enough,it went to a local garage first with a power loss issue and that guy send one of the actuators was very stiff..who knows,I need a bmw genius to figure it out..

    Gearbox fault?

    What were your symptoms....I’ve got no rev fluctuations or jittering at all,box is silky smooth but and it’s a big but,there’s like a big flat spot,it’s nearly always there and has been for the last 6years of ownership. At day 70mph if I accelerate there little linear pull it’s like a flat spot then gear drops and away...as I said earlier,I’ve owned 2.0tdis that felt so much nicer in general,not as quick obviously,justdoesnt feel effortless as a diesel should

    Gearbox fault?

    Specialist said if the service didn’t cure it was probably TQ...so I’m now 99.9% sure it’s that..Sussex’s autos do upgraded TQ for £200..they either send off the shelf or refurb...I’ll definitely be ordering soon...I’m assuming when you say TQ clutch you mean the actual TQ ??

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Funnily enough I’ve just ordered some h7 bulbs and the led halo lights..nice n cheap..I’ll see when fitted if it was worth it
