  1. Here we have for sale my immaculate 2007 BMW 535d M Sport LCi Twin Turbo. I am selling due to being my 2nd car which was initially only bought as I started doing long motorway journeys to work. Since then I have changed jobs and no longer require it for that, so it has just been used every other weekend or so. I searched long and hard for a car with this spec and drove quite a few hundred miles around the country to turn down many “great” examples. I wanted one with decent mileage but most importantly great service history, LCI update, Paddle Shift Gearbox, huge options list, a nice colour and a light interior. I was lucky enough to find this one rather close by and have become good friends with its previous keeper. It has been an absolutely joy to drive, turbos pull and sound well, it is comfortable and luxurious inside, I haven’t spared a single penny on maintenance as you will see below and it needs nothing doing to it. First some key details: MOT March 2018 with 1 advisory which has been fixed (Check MOT History Online) 99650 miles (this won’t raise much as it’s a garage queen) Full BMW Service History bar the last stamp, last major service was 2000 miles ago 2 Remote Key Fobs Plus 2 Plastic Master Keys Full BMW Service Pack V5 Present & In My Name 3 Former Keepers No accidents, No Finance & HPI Clear Options List: BMW Metallic Grey Paint in very good condition Full BMW Nappa Cream Leather with Fully Electric Front Seats with 2 Position Memory (Height, Length, Bolster, Lumbar, Upper Back, Legs) Light Wood Interior Trim Adaptive Steering, (Lighter at lower speeds, heavier when faster) Cream Carpets and Over Mats 3 Way Heated Seats which can be adjusted through iDrive Sports Gearbox with Sports Button/LCi Paddle Shift Lane Departure Assist Hill Start Assist Cruise Control BMW Professional Navigation with Bluetooth BMW Premium Sound System with underseat speakers Bluetooth Hands-free Phone Kit Adaptive Cruise Control with Braking Function Multi-Function Steering Wheel On Board Computer Electric Glass Sunroof Dual Zone Climate Control Ice Cold Air Conditioning BMW Adaptive Xenon headlights Auto Headlights Electric and Heated Mirrors with Memory One Touch Folding Mirrors BMW Interior Lights Package BMW SOS Automatic Interior Lights Automatic Windscreen Wipers 6 CD in Glovebox Changer, 1 CD in Dash Front/Rear Parking Sensors with Display Front/Rear Fogs BMW Plastic Boot liner ABS/PAS 4 X Electric Windows More Airbags than you can shake a stick at Recent Maintenance Work & Upgrades: Full Service carried out 2000 miles ago (oil filter, air filter, pollen filter, fuel filter, engine oil, new coolant) using OEM parts (Castrol Edge Titanium Engine Oil) Full Aircon re-gas (it’s ice cold now!) Genuine BMW EGR Thermostat Genuine BMW Engine Thermostat Genuine BMW Alternator Drive Belt Genuine BMW Tensioner & Idler Pulleys Genuine BMW Front & Rear anti-roll bar drop-links Refurbished all 4 Calipers HEL Braided brake lines all around OEM Front Brake Discs Genuine BMW Rear Brake Discs EBC Red Stuff pads all around Genuine BMW Brake Shoes Pentosin Super Dot 4 Plus brake fluid OEM Beru Glow Plug Controller 6x OEM Bosch Glow plugs RamAir Silicone Vacuum Lines X8R Swirl Flap Delete Kit Bimmertune EGR Delete Kit (not fitted, but will come with sale) Brand new DPF Filter! (The old one can come with sale too) LED Number Plate Lights Full headlight restoration Genuine 19-inch Spider alloys powder coated in Light Black Chrome by BJV Engineering (these look bloody amazing, they are so hard to capture on camera as the colour changes depending on light and angle!) 4x Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (only done 2000 miles since new!) Genuine BMW M wheel badges Genuine BMW Hub Caps 15mm BIMMEC Black wheel spacers New Black bolts and Locking wheel nuts Gloss Black Kidney Grills Genuine BMW Side repeaters (old ones were too cloudy) Genuine BMW Roundels (front and back) Genuine BMW Prop-shaft Guibo Bosch Aero Wipers New Number Plates BMW Software ECU Update (Done @ Sytner BMW) BMW Software iDrive Update (Done @ Sytner BMW) Carly Coding to enable features such as Digital Speedo, extra controls on iDrive system for heated seats, brighter angel eyes and more The car has also recently had a Gtechniq Windscreen Treatment and 2 Coats of R222 Wax. The previous keeper is actually a detailer, and I am just as OCD about keeping it clean! It is garaged pretty much all week as I have a daily beater for grinding the city miles. The above has cost me north of £4500 in parts and labour and there are probably a few things that I have missed but that is the majority of the maintenance work. As you can see, this car has been cared for EXTREMELY well! Pictures do not do it justice, really needs to be seen to be appreciated. Bad Points: The only thing that I would mark as a “bad point” on here, would be the stone chips on the front bumper and a few on the front side of the bonnet. Unfortunately, no matter how careful I am, those are unavoidable, especially on motorway journeys. The car even had a resprayed front bumper last year by the previous owner and it didn’t take long for them to appear again. Car has also well known on this forum and people will vouch for its condition. No part exchange please, I am not desperate to sell. Don't let the mileage put you off, this is truly an amazing example, that really has to be seen to be appreciated. I turned down a lot of 40-50k mile cars for this. Please only contact me if you are genuinely interested and have the money to buy this car. If you would like a test drive please bring proof that you are fully insured on this vehicle, otherwise I will drive. It’s lovely and deserves the respect and a good home. Any questions, don’t hesitate to give me a call on 07491 874682 or drop me a PM. I am a true car enthusiast and don't mind having a long chat about the car. Price: £11,495 Alternative Price: £10,495 if you bring your own set of wheels. Thanks, Sid
  2. Hi, I recently purchased a bmw 525i M Sport LCI 57 plate(Automatic transmission). Im wondering if ianyone can help me out. So in short my car is making a noise from the engine maybe a motor/pump? Something that rotates? (see attached video). The noise is not present on cold But Gets louder when the car warms up. When i give a little gas the noise goes faster (noise disappears above 1500RPM+). I have changed the spark plugs, filters ect.. no difference. Doing an oil change soon. Now one mechanic said it maybe the timing chain, VANOS or hydrolic lifters? Which i doubt because (using a stethoscope) the noise is different to the timing chain noise. Now i have narrowed the noise down to a specific part it is loudest just behind the pulley's after some research i found out it is the vacuum pump related to the breaking system. Could this pump cause such a loud noise like this? I don't want to risk buying a new pump for around 350GBP and it does not sort the problem out. Any recommendations? Any ideas what it could be? If video doesn't work here is the youtube link: IMG_8021.MOV
  3. H3NAL E60 Build Log

    After driving a BMW 1 Series E87, which i very much enjoyed the nippiness of it. for roughly 2 years of owning the car i thought to my self i need a bigger car, and before i knew it, an opportunity came for buying a BMW E60 LCI in Dark Blue after driving it for many months i really liked the feel of how it handles its massive space. and for some reason i got bored with its looks and it felt that I'm driving an older man's car, which people would think its my fathers car or something, i found my self looking at M5 bumpers, since it had more of an aggressive look compared to the LCI SE bumpers. also i kind of didn't like the original colour of the car since it was not blue and not black so the dark blue had to go. so with the help of friends i wrapped my car in Matte Royal Blue slowly this have been turning from a simple E60 SE to some thing that puts a smile every time i look at it, (thinking how it will look ) Next M5 bumper installation !! After waiting for my bumper to arrive and my car looking half wrapped and half original just looked odd. And it arrived in a bumper box that I have never seen before , well packed. So so installation process began After many attempts to align the bumper and get the spacing correct it was on had to transfer all the parking sensors brackets and cabling to the new bumper even had to drill the holes for the sensors since it doesn't come with hols due to the different parking sensors in the LCI not a problem an pilot hole is marked to correct positioning. The chrome had to go and give it that meaner look. Getting somewhere wrap about 80% complete at this stage A nice mean shot of the front in dark. Number plate on and picture of it in the day light boot was open since I was fitting the rear number plate. Many of you lot won't notice but my headlights inners have been removed. This is because something dark and deep is happening to them. Will post more about this in couple of days. Just to keep you on your toes !!! time to heat them up and open them New rings RGB with the ability to change the colour on your phone ! sorry old rings you got to go where you belong in the bin. quick picture of the demon eyes when its on already liking the outcome. all boring silver sprayed in a nice deep blue with extra clear coat for that deep gloss look. that's enough for now. What do you lot think ?
