  1. Alright, fellas. Need to change a passenger side pretensioner and I'm just wondering is it possible to do without removing the seat? Or are the front seats hard to remove in an E60, i.e a two man job? Cheers.

    Seatbelt pretensioner change.

    It's blown. Have the full replacement unit.

    Seatbelt pretensioner change.

    Yeah, they're electric. I'll raise them up as high as they go and keep them in the middle of the slide rail and hope for the best! Haha, thanks again.

    Seatbelt pretensioner change.

    Yeah, battery disconnect was my first port of call! Cheers, I'll give it a go tomorrow.

    Wheel spacers

    Haha, yeah I get ya. The supplied bolts are spot on anyway so you'll be grand.

    Wheel spacers

    Just the bolts supplied. I'm planning a stud conversion at a later date, but the car is handling fine with the supplied longer bolts.

    Wheel spacers

    I've literally just fitted precision spacers on my 520 M Sport. 20mm rear and 10mm front on standard M suspension. Makes a big difference to the overall stance of the car. Delighted with the results.

    PDC problem.

    Hey guys, Good friend of mine bought an 09 M Sport last week. The PDC doesn't work front or back on it. It was missing a rear sensor when he got it and he bought a replacement and fitted it during the week thinking that was the problem, however nothing has changed. The iDrive screen just white all around the car when in reverse, and when it was plugged into an OBD reader, the reader couldn't even contact the PDC module so there is no error codes given. Any ideas? Replace the PDC module in the spare wheel well maybe?

    Cheers. I'll pass on the info. On a side note, does anyone know if broken PDC is an MOT fail?

    BST cable help

    Hey, Got the notorious BST errors on the dash. (93A9, 93AA and 93B2). Am I correct in thinking I need to replace a cable? Can anyone tell me from this picture which cable I need to replace? Cheers.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    I also need to do this. Can it be done for HIDs too? As I installed some last week and am starting to get bulb out errors on start up. Did you use Carly?

    BST cable help

    We tried to clear them after they were scanned and it wouldn't let them be cleared! I'm half thinking of buying Bimmergeeks ProTool and seeing is it possible to code the checks out.

    BST cable help

    Just doing some more research this morning and it seems my fault codes 93a9 and 93aa aren't related to the BST issue like I had originally thought (just the 93b2 code). When I got the car scanned the 93a9 93aa codes said "squib circuit, belt tensioner driver side and passanger side". Has anyone any idea where I go from here? Is it a case of replacing the belt tensioner in the seats or? Cheers.

    Would also like to know this.

    BST cable help

    I'm not sure to be honest, just got the warning on the screen and a scan gave those codes. I'm not sure I bought the car 9 months ago and this is the first time I've had to remove the battery cover so they've been there from the previous owner!

    Is that the black plug in my picture?

    HIDs and the MOT

    Hey guys, I recently picked up a 5000k HID kit to fit into my LCI halogen e60. My MOT is up at the end of February and I'm just wondering if I should wait until after to fit them? What are peoples experiences with HIDs fitted to projector halogens for the MOT? Straight up fail or luck of the draw? Cheers.
  18. Hey I've an lci E60 in carbon black. The previous owner loved drive thru washes by the looks of it as it looks like it's never had a detail in its life. It's covered in swirls and has pretty bad oxidation on the bonnet. After some research I've just bought my first ever machine polisher along with some meguiars ultimate compound and ultimate polish to tackle the oxidation/swirls. As I've always just hand polished my cars in the past, I've no idea what pads I need to buy for the DA polisher. Can anyone recommend some pads for cutting through the oxidation and finishing with the polish? Thanks.

    HIDs and the MOT

    Because I'm an impulsive idiot, haha. I suppose it's not much hassle to refit the halogens for the MOT anyway.

    HIDs and the MOT

    I'm living/working in Belfast now, Keliuss. I think I'll chance my arm with them fitted and see how I get on. Thanks, lads.
  21. Sorry to bring up an oldish thread. But I've recently installed white LED bulbs for the halos on my LCI E60 and want HIDs/LED headlight bulbs to match. Just wondering if anyone has fitted the above LED kit into an LCI headlight with projectors and if it's an easy a job as it is in the pre-LCI E60? Cheers.
  22. Hey lads, Last week I noticed that on the passenger side of my car (e60 LCI with halogens) one of the angle eye rings was a lot dimmer than the other one. It didn't bother me too much as I had an LED upgrade kit ordered and figured that the stock halogen bulb was just on the way out. However, I fitted the new LED kit today and the same ring is still a lot duller than the one beside it. Any ideas? Cheers.
  23. Sure. No luck yet though!

    E60 LCI LED side light bulbs

    Looks great. Which kit did you use?
