    535d msport
  1. Gearbox fault?

    Guessing this is why it was for sale...I couldn’t do that personally...go back to seller and have a word
  2. Had my 535D on the dyno this weekend!

    He’s got a very good reputation and has sorted mine of all it’s problems...might start smaller and see how it goes..
  3. Had my 535D on the dyno this weekend!

    Mine a pre lci. (2006) delete remap and intercooler is all that’s required...Wagner intercoolers...how much are these alone ? The last time I had major surgery under the bonnet my local specialist said he could remap for me up to 400bhp,as much as ivw replaced bits n bobs my engine is solid and well maintained
  4. Had my 535D on the dyno this weekend!

    What are the costs in these mods to reach around 400 bhp ??? Roughly
  5. Had my 535D on the dyno this weekend!

    Was ready to sell mine but reading this has me tempted to play
  6. Voltage...

    Use the secret menu to monitor volts output....mine was up and down visibly so alternator it was..£150 later and all been good for about a year..I was getting regular tyre pressure and gearbox warnings together
  7. I just remember emaps and Simon.could be the same guy..had a fantastic reputation at the old bmw forum
  8. BMW Warranty & "corrosion"

    6years I think
  9. Look up Simon of emaps I’m pretty sure it’s called,and if I remember rightly he’s in the Essex area,I could be wrong but he’s highly regarded at doing remaps
  10. I also had a very mild hum from the rear that some days sounded louder than others. Turned out to be tyres lol
  11. Thinking of buying 535d m sport

    When I part ex mine I’m expecting 3k at best and that’s trading...mine has 120k miles though
  12. Thinking of buying 535d m sport

    I’m in that area also
  13. Thinking of buying 535d m sport

    I feel exactly the same...wanted one for a year or two before I bought it...reliability wise it’s the worst car I’ve ever owned
  14. Thinking of buying 535d m sport

    Ccc cost me £1100 after a few months of owning car,it’s on the blink again lol thermostats..turbo hoses,egr valves air reservoir,gearbox service,possible torque convertor issues. also my paint work is horrendous which I’ll either have repainted or wrapped....I’d rather respray in truth but depends on prices.ccc refurb is £250. Wish I’d known...oh I’ve also had 3 battery’s and an alternator..really only the ccc refurb possibly the box in the bootwell can’t remember it’s name... but I’m looking at 640d now...I’ll either part ex come the time or make sure mine is 100% before selling private... as I said,when they are right they are superb,but it’s not if it goes wrong it’s when it goes wrong...

    When this model is right it’s fantastic,but the pre lci models are flawed with many common problems..if everything works and the price is right it might be a good buy,but it could also be a money pit...mines cost me over 3k in repairs and upkeep this year alone
