    Tyres and Non Runflat

    So after much deliberation and time spent investigating, my Pending MOT has forced me to buy new Tyres all round.... I may have got away with only doing the rears but figured for the price I will do all 4. So what I have gone fore is Khumo Ecsta PS91 which according to the blurb are perfect for BMWs M sports cars!! SO to put a final Nail in the coffin of Run flat vs Non run flat I will update this thread with my own personal views once they are on.. of course this will be personal and no doubt everyone is different, however i`m sick of the whole thing and should I or should i not tell insurance... so its being done and im just gonna drive the thing!! On that note too its cost me £370 for tyres and £60 to have fitted!!

    F10 Grating Noise

    Appreciate the feedback gents, I have seen a post abut a free spring check so going to speak to my local BMW dealership and see what they say I checked the tyres yesterday and they are not far off needing replacing anyway so going to move to non run flats and poss get the wheels powdercoated at the same time, will have to work out logistics of that but either way the tyres will be changed soon!! hopefully see what happens after that Thanks again

    F10 Grating Noise

    Mine has started doing this too, usually really notice it over 20 mph and its terrible on motorways.. thought it was brake pads so checked them and they have loads left.. I suspect its the tyres which are Michelin Primacy but are worn now, prob 4mm left on them so not far off replacement. Will change for non runflats before the MOT and see if that sorts my problem... bloody annoying though

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    Recently Ive had a volvo hire car to visit other sites for work, both times ive been given the new S90 with a 2.0 turbocharged 235 HP engine in, and whilst quick it certainly doesnt feel as quick as my 5 series, nor does it sound anywhere near as nice!!! I drive these hire cars always comparing to my own car and so far none have persuaded me that id want another brand... in fact i now find myself considering a 640 Gran coupe (i like the style and interior a lot) so basically in 10 months owning a 3.0 F10 i find myself firmly on the 6 pot gravy train, 2.0 engines just dont have the character or appeal anymore

    Considering F10 M-Sport...

    Ive got a 6 pot 525D and "NO GO???" errr, its got plenty of shove and not remapped yet, £300 quid remap sees it somewhere around 270BHP... but I dont see the need, its plenty quick enough for our roads

    M Sport suspension

    So what you`re saying is BMW suspension, spring or airbag is shite??? I will have a look again when I get home and see if it does the same thing.... but my god ive never spent so long worrying about different things to go wrong on a car in my life... my old octavia VRS went through thick and thin in 5 years of ownership and all that ever went wrong was a pressure sensor!!

    M Sport suspension

    Mine is an F10 so it seems like I may have dodged a bullet then as I`m reading about plenty of failures... Still gives me a question mark over what I felt in the car though!! very odd but will have a closer look when i get home later.. option 704 according to the vin decoder

    Registering my car with BMW.

    Mines def a CIC unit, I was thinking it could be age of car too, mines 2011 so imagine BMW have made a good few changes to the way it all works with newer cars

    M Sport suspension

    Hi all, this should be a fairly straight forward one to answer (most likely Mr Ashton) but can anyone tell me do cars with M-sport suspension fitted have airbags at the rear??? I suspect not but i`m almost certain that when i got in the car this morning to move it I felt the rear rise up, and my daughter has commented before whilst standing outside the car that the rear looked low.... I cannot see anything obvious when I look into the wheel arch just the usual strut but no obvious spring either.. It was dark this morning so figured guys in the know on here could tell me (or girls to be politically correct) I`m sure they don`t have airbags just on the rear but you never know with the way BMW spec individual cars.. Thanks in advance

    Registering my car with BMW.

    when did that change?? wish it was a simple as that when i did my car a few months back, utter ball ache waiting for BMW to do its thing...

    Registering my car with BMW.

    If you want to use things like connected drive etc then you have to register with an account on the connected drive portal, then fill in a form and mail it or email it to BMW with proof of V5 for them to tie them up together, pain in the arse really!!

    Audio upgrade F10 - A different approach

    Hi Mathew, So having the BASE setup with no AMP (explaining why it sounds so poor) would the wiring be in situ for me to just add a factory AMP if i found one on EBAY or something?? then give the speakers an upgrade at a later date??

    Graeme, You are better off adding your request in this section of the forum http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/forum/103-f07f10f11-2010-2017/ Thats the link for all FXX series BMWs for everything, the CODING part of this website doesnt appear to see much action Dave
