    F11 Speaker Upgrade

    To add some speakers to the topic for future reference. I have used the company Jehnert before for a previous vehicle. I was really happy with the result as my car at the time (Mercedes SL) would only accept slim line speakers. They do need an amp to power them however so not really suitable just to plug and play if you are on the basic hifi system.

    Towbar issues

    I think I agreed with sshooie from the beginning, you have to follow the process however and until that process reaches its conclusion its best to not say one way or the other. At this stage I was hoping to get some info on what would be the cause of the issue to arm myself with some knowledge should everything go down the unsavory route. I thank you all for your replies.

    I believe the Focal units are plug and play and a decent upgrade to the standard units.

    Towbar issues

    I was watching him fit for the most part, the fitter definitely tried to install into the canbus in the rear of the vehicle. He was talking about a high level brake line. Like I described in the OP, this threw out loads of module failures like pdc failure, body stability failure to name just a few. After this, the fitter then disconnected cables and routed to the front in the drivers footwell. At this stage I am allowing pf jones to come back and try and rectify the issue. I am however going to now need to get into the system and have a look and see what codes are being stored etc and to have them all cleaned out.

    The fitter is trying to explain to me that it is because the battery is holding 13v thus the relay is not switching off. The relay switches off at 12.5. Once the battery reaches 12.5v the "battery drain while stationary" message will cease.

    That sounds about right chris. Its not enough (if any) draw to drain the battery but the car has picked up that there is a live still active an thrown the warning. Well, so says my man logic

    Did you take your live feed direct off the battery? Does this then go into a module to regulate or allow the vehicle to sleep?

    The PDC does recognise that a trailer is connected when hooked up. So I would assume the other modes would also be activated?

    No coding no. I did see a little module that was installed but other then that. Pf jones which does come recommended are the company that fitted.
  10. 80g weight for wheel balancing is a lot of weight. I would suggest that by this point your tyre would have gone out of shape and no amount of rebalancing was going to make it round again, thus your vibrations still being present until said tyre was replaced. Glad you got it sorted and thanks for the update.
  11. My only gripe is when other cars pass me on the Autobahn. But I have to admit, this is quite rare.

    Towbar issues

    Hi, I have recently have had fitted a westfalia towbar with dedicated 13 pin electrics fitted to my lci 14 plate 535d f11. The fitter firstly tried to install wiring to rear of vehicle but this threw up lots of module failure warnings. So the fitter then fitted wiring to the front of the vehicle. All seemed well. but now everytime I get in the vehicle, I receive a battery discharge while stationary warning. Can anyone shed any light on this issue. Thanks

    rtti = real time traffic information for your nav. you can look at all the options for your car online with the bmw connected drive portal.

    I also find the rtti useful. BMW also do lots of promotions to try things out for a month for a £1. I tried deezer for a month and while I find it good, I do not think its worth the £160 for the year.
