  1. Wayback when I bought my E36 it had an illegal tyre so I insisted they put the same on that matched the other 3 and they tried to argue the toss it wasn't neccesary to get away with fitting a budget tyre. The manual stated to use matching per axle so it didn't mess with the ASC. Always made sense to me

    Sat nav maps

    I wasn't on about the F series, more the cic in the late E60's.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Only a few mm difference in disc size, looks better in real life tbh

    Sat nav maps

    I think 2014 was the last stable map for stock firmware, I had my car updated before I put the 2018 map on my cic.

    535D DPF warning

    You need diagnostics to see what other faults it has, also bad thermostats will stop it getting hot enough to start a regen.

    E61 - Tyre Pressure

    My plate says 2.5 front, 3.0 rear on my 2010 E61 535d, 245 18" all round. No abnormal wear but they are run flats, I expect doing this to XL standard tyres would cause the same issue.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Brand can vary but it will have the BMW stamp on it, just don't buy LION branded. AGM are the best bet and usually come in 85ah to replace the 80ah fitted.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Probably the original battery, if it is it doesn't need testing, just replace it.

    I got mine on 104k, did the lot as it will all be due at that mileage.

    CIC front plate

    It's an audio upgrade so it is covered.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Before and after, I got PP welding rods as I had to make up one tab as I lost the bit that snapped. Also that pesky drain under the brake servo that blocks up, this is why it blocks as it has a 90 degree turn. I forgot to take a pic after welding the final tab back on.

    Repaired the damaged tabs on the bumper after trying to rip it off a couple of weeks ago reversing off a kerb, also pushed the bent wing tab back into place. What a twat I was doing that

    Bmw, specialists, diy

    My last car sold on the MOT record and file of receipts for work I had done myself. 1st person to view bought it for full asking price without even driving it. Dealer history often means the cars in far worse shape than someone taking it on themselves

    CIC front plate

    Just goes to show the majority of BMW staff are cockwombles. It is available but you won't have much change out of £150, worth asking Cotswold as ebay threw up 1 but it may be the wrong part when searching for 65839206067

    Plastic welding

    Well I managed to fip half the front bumper off yesterday reversing out a parking spot, the bumper had caught and the Mrs thought it was coming off ok until the inevitable crack and the RHS of the bumper decided to stay on the kerb. I have broken most of the clips along the wheel arch and where it clips into the wing. The wing has bent down a little and split the back of the mounting hole but that can be bent back as it hasn't damaged the visible part once I get home and take the bumper off. Having seen the price of a replacement genuine bumper and the other option of my insurance jumping up if I claim I thought I would have a go at plastic welding. Is the genuine bumper ABS? and has anyone got any good tips/links for fixing broken tabs so they won't snap again in a few days or during assembly. Thanks.

    Plastic welding

    Yeah I broke 2 of those tabs and probably pulled through the screw hole. Also one tab in the arch liners diagonally snapped. I was given a link to a database of bumpers and it is PP so rods and gauze on it's way. Who knows if I damaged anything else until it is all off.

  25. Hi, anyone know what the genuine E60 front bumpers are made from? Thanks.
