    BMW F10 M5. 2012. FBMWSH.

    Haha I initially thought the same too. It's how its placed as the bottom of the tailgate has a slight taper and gives that illusion. Ive googled other images and the same. I was still tempted to replace though

    E61 won,t unlock

    Id replace the battery then try again Failing that then take a look at the thread relating to the antenna/wiring on the e61 that fails and presents the problems you mention

    New MOT rules woes

    I was talking to an MOT tester yesterday whom I know really well and I asked him about these changes and particularly the gutted DPF. He said the visual inspection would be the same - open to interpretation as to whether it's been tampered with. He said a neat weld on the upper side would be less obviously and more likely to not be picked up. Anything that was missing or cut/welded from underside would fair straight away. The big killer would be for smoke. A car that should have a DPF will be checked for visible smoke from the tailpipes and if there is any whatsoever it will fail. He said it will open to interpretation and the view of the tester will be inconsistent, but the general rule was any smoke at all - fail.

    Manifold leak

    It's very easy to put the manifold back and #6 not to be seated correctly.

    Glow plug controller removal

    Some people claim to be able to remove it with the manifold insitu! Must have xray vision and hands like elfs

    Thump on take off ......

    Could be worn propshaft/guibo or worn half shafts - these would be commensurate with a thump on pulling away Worth checking tightness of wheel bolts, and the bolts of all of the above. Guibo is favourite

    LSD options for a 535D?

    I had the birds LSD on the 535d I've just sold. It was fitted in 2015 iirc and it was about £2k fitted.
  12. If you have lost coolant then it's likely you have a small pinprick in the rad

    Problems with first start in morning

    The issue with the BMW controller is that it's mounted directly below the inlet manifold and the swirl flaps with age leak oil onto it.

    Problems with first start in morning

    Changing the controller is a pig of a job. Unless you have hands like a pygmy fiddler then its a manifold off job - even then its a shitter. That said I've got hands like a bunch of bananas
