    Goodbye my friend.

    Bottom line is, it was an accident and they happen. Just glad to hear everyone was ok in the end and the car did it’s job.
  2. Booked into Fairbairns for MOT and oil and filter change
  3. 6000 miles till next service (72000) which will be the major one the last one was just the fuel, pollen and oil filters, Oil not due till then either, I just prefer to change the oil and filter every 6000, certainly won’t do the engine any harm just my pocket . Service records all up to date, everyone being at Parks (before I got it) They got back to me today quoting 54 for MOT and 129 for oil and filter. It’s also booked in for the EGR valve recall

    EGR Recall

    Was contacted today, posted on MOT and oil filter thread
  5. Got this from Parks in Glasgow today I am emailing in response to your live chat enquiry to obtain a price for an MOT and oil service for your car. Based on the history of your car, I can see it will likely be looking for the bigger oil change (oil, air, fuel, microfilter) and a vehicle check service. Given the age of your car, you are entitled to the four plus rate of servicing, which applies 10% discount. Given this, the total cost of the oil service and vehicle check service, including VAT will be £521.66. The mot is £54.85. I can also see that there is a safety recall outstanding on your car to run some checks on the exhaust gas recirculation cooler, with possible replacement. Because this is work that BMW are asking us to carry out on the car, there will be no cost to yourself. Is this something you would like to make an appointment for? If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. Kind regards I only asked for MOT and oil and filter change as I think the recommended 12000 miles between oil changes is a bit too long. Car not due a service for another 6500 miles.

    Tyre pressure Non RFT's 535d F10

    I also fitted the Cross climates to the front recently and used the pressure on the door pillar, tyres are great very quiet and comfortable. It’s a pity they don’t make them in the rear size 275/40/18. Did you change your wheels on the rear to suit the slightly narrower tyre?
  7. Mot is due on 1st March and was going to change oil and filter at same time as coincidently it’s 6000 miles till next service (personally think 12000 miles is too long between changes). Any idea of what the likely price will be using the recommended oil and filter. Received a quote today via email from MB Jarvis for 235 that included a number of additional options including diesel injector cleaning, new sump o ring seal and a oil flush (thought gravity sorted that out

    Tyres and Non Runflat

    Run flats are finally gone, replaced the fronts today with Michelin Cross Climates, the Khumo Ecsta PS91 on the rear still 5mm on them. The Michelin’s are noticeably quieter than the Continental runflats.

    Tyres and Non Runflat

    Is there any update on the Khumo Ecsta PS91’s?

    New car time - decisions decisions

    If boot space isn’t high on your list the BMW 435 Grand Coupe, lovely looking car and drives and handles great in my opinion.

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    Exactly the same for me, changing the oil more regularly than the service police suggest will undoubtedly help in my opinion, mine was in a independent garage recently and I spoke to one of the techs, he said in his experience about one in twenty N47s experienced problems.

    F07 Summer Tyre recommendations

    I recently ditched the continental run flats on the rear when they were due to be changed, replaced them with Kumho Ecsta PS91, definitely quieter and more comfortable and won’t burst your budget. Bmw are now using Kumho on the 3 series and other models. When the fronts need changing they will be going on there also, much nicer ride in my opinion.

    B47 f10 2014 fuel economy

    Getting easily in excess of 45mpg from my 520D N47 tractor in eco mode right enough as I am tight as two coats of paint

    Which Alloys

    Have my original 350’s (I think that’s what they are) still like them
  15. I generally leave mine in Eco Pro being as tight as two coates of paint, returns 630 miles from a tank, agreed it definitely deadens the response. I will have a pint of what the bloke from BMW has been drinking
