  1. Remove armrest phone cradle E60 LCI

    That's not bad. Dual usb would be nice though.
  2. Remove armrest phone cradle E60 LCI

    Me too, but if you only have one USB port and the DAB adaptor needs it... How much are they? I saw a head unit like this the other day, started off reasonable, and then the options list took it stupid levels.
  3. Remove armrest phone cradle E60 LCI

    It's on my E46, it doesn't have one. That head unit in the video you posted in the other thread, the guy want's $750 for. I couldn't justify it for that money. You could always stream the mp3s over bluetooth from your phone or some other device.
  4. Remove armrest phone cradle E60 LCI

    I have a chinesium android head unit in my E46. Every time you turn it on, the sd card has vanished from it's memory and you have to eject it and reinsert it for it to find the mp3s. The slot is now buggered thanks to how often I've needed to do it and I'm now using the gps slot. I'd want a second usb port.

    Ooh, that's not bad. I keep looking at these but they're always nearer £600. And please, let us know what you think.

    What head unit are you looking at?
  7. Wheel sizes

    willtheyfit.com suggests they'll be fine. Just check your widths and offsets. I did a similar thing running one size winter tyres on the staggered rims on my E46
  8. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    The colour and instructions are the same. £36.98 for 5 litres on Amazon delivered, compared with £15 for 500ml of rapid aqua wax.
  9. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Washed and waxed it too. Autoglym Rapid Aqua Wax is great stuff, you can apply it to wet panels and it's so easy to buff off. Ideal for a quick wax in-between proper waxes for extra protection. You can get 5 litres of it called Express Wax for less than £40. Bargain. Rain-x'ed the front and rear screens too. Saloons need a rear wiper, yet still they don't fit one.
  10. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Fitted a new water valve. She peed out much more coolant than I was expecting which was a weak pink/purple instead of the blue/green of G48. I'll do a proper coolant change when I do the 7000 mile oil change sometime in the spring. My feet are now warm but the HVAC is still not as good as my E46. I want cool air from the centre vents and warm to my feet, the E60 won't do it. On Auto, it seems like it's just cycling all the time. Still, better than it was.

    Thanks, I'll check it out.
  12. E60 Brake wear sensor question

    Get them. You'll inevitably break them trying to get them out of your old pads and they aren't expensive.
  13. Tint Identification

    Okay, but if you applied a tint film to the back of one of the windows, wouldn't the numbers be pretty much unreadable because the tint would fill the cut out bits of the lettering?
  14. Tint Identification

    Guys, your opinions please. I have a long air bubble in the NSR tint, is it OEM or aftermarket? It looks aftermarket on this one door thanks to stretchmarks etc. I assumed the glass was broken and an aftermarket tint applied. After examining the glass, it's genuine BMW tinted glass. So... Have they applied a second tint to the door or is it an OEM tint looking that bad? My plan is to get another window from an E60 M Sport and replace it or I get the car tinted again and try to match it. The offending door Door and quarter panel from the inside... ...and the outside Close up of the numbers opposite side for comparison and rear window.

    Very useful, thanks.
