    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    No room due to the module carrier I will be coming up with another plan to fit something along the lines of surface mounted USB outlets

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Tried to fit a 12v accessory socket under the passenger side on my LCI as they don't come with one. Then found out why they didn't come with one, threw toys out of pram and stripped down a tomtom fag lighter adapter to make it into a hardwire kit. No more adapter in the ashtray getting in my way as I also fitted the universal phone adapter onto the snap in plate. Decided to tidy up the retrofitted Westfalia tow bar wiring and moved the earth points out of sight and wired the 12v lines into the fuse panel the same as the BMW kit has. It was a nice break from the kids

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I did take the mounting bracket off on the inlet side as it said so in ISTA but the exhaust side with the extra turbo in the way came out, maybe luck of the draw with the LCI?

    What shocks?

    Yes I have the m sport setup. Most of the time it's like Koni yellow on soft until you hit a big pothole or speed bumps where it acts like an se.

    DVD sat nav fault

    You can buy the drive units online, probably the best option.

    What shocks?

    Top mounts as they are so cheap for Lemforder, no point not changing them but the ones that came off were not bad in any way shape or form, just couldn't see the point leaving them on as they would wear out in the next few years anyway. Springs seem in good condition, the car was a 09 production registered March 2010 so a lot of common worn parts are still ok.

    What shocks?

    A month on and they have bedded in nicely, Ride is improved in comfort and handling. I couldn't be happier with them.

    Headlight adjustment problem.

    Dealer level diagnostics should show the fault.

    Headlight adjustment problem.

    My MOT guy did it for nothing as I knew it was out before the MOT so I asked

    Buying number plates on line

    Got mine here, proper markings, told to contact before sending docs then it was marked as shipped without sending any, arrived 2 days later. https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/ej-parts?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2754

    Wastgate adjustment help needed

    Sorry I have no idea.
  14. Plain brown are earth, some have a pinstripe and this caught me out and I got 2 wrong, but it was the boot lock and a light. 3rd brake light is prone to failure so check for 5v on the wires running to it.

    Wastgate adjustment help needed

    I did look at that myself and came to the conclusion that I would tape the nut in place and put it back to that, seems fine. All those diagnostic tools to me seems like it is saying, connect a vacuum to the pipe, close the plate and do the nut up 4 turns. I guess a £15 vac test kit would do it if it has a gauge.
