  1. Is his car the plastic version of Magneto?!
  2. Is a Sponge Just a Sponge?

    Do that in straight lines though, otherwise you'll end up causing swirl marks & cobwebs . . . . . .
  3. Hi All, As the title suggests i am currently getting a resonanting sound in the car. I've tried a few different things to try and determine what it is, but to no avail. Sound; Is audible from 40/45mph - 70mph (at the higher speed the sound you can only just about hear on a newly surfaced road) It is an odd resonance - similar to if someone was spinning something around their head and you were standing close by. Not a loud noise, but it has a beginning, middle and end sequence if you will (a slight increase in sound, and then fades out). It only lasts for a second or so, with the same gap in-between. The noise appears to be in the whole cabin, and i can't specify it to a particular direction it's coming from. No vibration in the car (that i can feel or am aware of) What i have ruled out so far; Tyres - swapped from summer to winter wheels. No difference at all. Engine/gearbox related; the sound is the same in any gear - no difference Road surface - mainly more audible on newly surface roads as it is otherwise overcome by tyre noise. Bearings - replaced one recently and all the rest feel fine - checking them bi-weekly the past few months. Equally no increase or decrease in noise turning left or right. The car still drives as it has done since i bought it. Nothing appears to have changed or be any different, so i am a bit stumped. I am stuck as to where to look next or what to check. - I don't think it's a wheel bearing - noise isn't consistent enough and they all appear to be fine. - Possibly something in the exhaust causing the noise - Prop shaft - if the donut or bearings have gone, could this be the noise? (have not checked this for movement yet) Any other ideas or input? TIA
  4. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Ordered a C110+ , after reading some good things about them on here it looks to be a good tool to have to hand.
  5. Interesting parking

    i'll bet the Mini is a write off and the BM will cost £20 to get back on the road
  6. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Not a worry, i have my eye on these for something in the future. They're a good size 'big' car without being huge like a Discovery or Range Rover FYI be careful buying a 2017 car as the road tax rules are changing for them.
  7. Wheel sizes

    Be careful with tyre sizes as your insurance may use the incorrect tyre size against you . . . .
  8. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Here you go . . . . Linky
  10. 7-seat MPV views and opinions

    Land Rover Discovery Sport (7 seater version) early 20k are 2015 cars, 2017 higher end of 20k. So plenty to see and decide on
  11. E61 2.0D N47 Coolant Temperature Sensor

    Not above the EGR cooler, think i found it near the exchanger unit (or that's what i think it is). However it only has one pin, new sensor has 2
  12. Does anyone have a good picture of the location? Cannot seem to find anything useful on Google. TIA
  13. Tint Identification

    IIRC a factory tint is a physical coating on the glass, not a film that has been applied.
  14. turning them off on the switch?
  15. MOT

    This is what my 2007 520D (pre LCI engine) achieved
