  1. Thanks for the kind offer but I'm too far away from your gorgeous part of the world. What I could do with is an idiot's guide to installing ISTA/D on a Windows 10 laptop....
  2. Thanks GoNz0 but I'd have to disagree as the fault hasn't cleared after several weeks and even my local garage has been unable to clear it using thier Snap On diagnostic tool, the fault code is - Fault Code: 2AB900 Fault Explanation: Glow plug, Diagnoserueckmeldung: mixing obstruction different Gluehstifttypen detected BMW TIS reference using the service mode to reset the control unit once you replace the glow plugs. Engine is N47 184bhp.
  3. I've just changed the glowplugs on my 2010 520D N47 engine. Due to top end knock and rough running when cold. The problem is slightly better but still not entirely gone. One thing I'm yet to do is code the control unit to tell it that it has new plugs. I have both Carly and Bimmercode but neither seem to offer this service function. Can you recommend a system that will code this unit? So I can finish the job and rectify this annoying fault.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Replaced the blown fuse that protects the cigarette lighter.

    Sat nav maps

    I updated my motion maps earlier in the year using a download and a lifetime FSC code form this site. It's still working, but that is just my experience I don't know if others forum users have had problems.

    Jaguar space saver spare....

    No, lots of swearing replacing the disc's on the back of the BMW. The Jag space saver should fit over 530D brakes. It fits over massive Brembo brakes on the Jag.

    A Jag in the snow. I only just made it off the drive.

    Rough cold start and fault codes

    I'm half expecting mine to be glow plug related too. I'll change them at the next service (which I'm about to do). As it's only going to get colder.

    Rough cold start and fault codes

    I had a similar fault with my car, but it's a 520d. The problem for me was a partially blocked fuel injector. I checked by using some Redex fuel system cleaner which got rid of the problem over the course of half a tank of fuel. However it came back. I then tried a terraclean at my local garage in May which seems to have cured it for now....
  12. When servicing my rear brakes on Monday I tried the 5x120 space saver spare from my Jaguar XKR on the BMW 520D. It fits with no need for a spigot ring and it clears the brakes too. Just so you know....

    F10 Front Wheel Bearing...

    I ordered a Febi-Bilstein bearing as it was cheaper than the FAG one by the amount of cost of the postage to the UK. https://www.autodoc.co.uk/febi-bilstein/7107522 The only problem with ordering from AutoDoc is that it takes about a week to get here from Germany. I have a M12 spline in my toolkit so thanks for that bit of advice.

    F10 Front Wheel Bearing...

    Thanks for the replies and all the advice. I've ordered a bearing from AutoDoc which will take a little time to get here. I'll copy out TIS and report back on how the job goes. FE.

    AutoDoc for a Febi/Bilstein £93 delivered. The Fag bearing was a similar price. How can Eurocar Parts be asking so much?
