  4. Adding Nav?

    I would have expected this to have been covered, but I can't seem to find anything. I have the chance of a well-priced 520d (Sept 2010) SE, but without Nav. Is it an easy retrofit? I believe the previous model was a change of screen and adding a module in the boot? TIA
  5. 6WB retrofit to F10

    HI all, has anyone attempted to do the following?? http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=700327 I really like the idea of this and by all accounts can be done, my car is a 2011 F10 (unsure if this makes mine LCI or pre LCI????) and what exactly does LCI mean?? Thanks in advance
  6. Hi guys, I am new to this forum so thought I should join and get some advice from you all. Not too long ago I drove over a unavoidable pot hole on a countryside road which had national speed limit that had instantly cut my passenger left tyre and buckled the same alloy which wasnt visible only when put on the balancing machine when the tyre was replaced. I have replaced my tyre to the same spec as before 19 inch runflats, the car then had a wheel alignment from Bmw and I have now also replaced the damaged alloy to OEM from BMW. The problem I am having with my car which did not exist prior to the pot hole damage is when driving especially on the motorway the car seems to pull to the left, when I hold the steering straight it seems as though the wheels are not tight and have a mind of their own and so i am constantly slightly moving my steering to keep the car straight, also when turning the car i have noticed i am having to turn alot more then usual as though the car Understeers and I can feel more body roll. I guess the main concern for me is why the car doesnt seem to stay straight and the feeling of the wheels not being tight when driving straight or following the lane. I have checked the tyre pressures and I know the new alloy was balanced. Not sure if any bushings, ball joints have also been affected. Any further advice or suggestions would be grateful. Thanks you all
  7. As the title. Should i reset my oil service on idrive when I change my oil as I plan to change it at around 8-10k miles not the 18k miles the computer seems to think is ok. I know the car records how many oil changes, is there any downsides to reseting the oil service when I do these interim oil changes? I'll be using Carly. Any advise appreciated? Thanks
  8. F10/F11 OBC?

    Good Morning, I am thinking returning to the 5 Series world, and buying a 2012 F11. Whilst I am familiar with the older BM terminology, I am not with the new stuff.. Particularly the stuff relating to the OBC's. Apparently, its not a MID I want any more! If you lot could guide me through whats what, you'd receive much thanks from my, and maybe a biscuit come brew time... AP
  9. Simple guide please

    Hi all, Would really appreciate a little help. I now have the connector dongle to Ethernet for my car BMW F10 2012. I have an old Dell laptop, with Windows 7 32bit installed ready for the task. I would like to setup the software on my laptop, I have googled and tried various downloads and 'instructions' but none mirror what I see on my laptop. can someone please guide me to the correct downloads and some simple installation instructions. thanks in advance. rrm
  10. Hi all I have a 2010 530d with 120k on the clock. The car has been sitting for about 2 weeks and I have recently discovered that the engine shakes heavily for the first 30-40 seconds after cold startup. The issue has gone on for some time now but it used to be a subtle vibration and would smoothen out after about 15 seconds. However it has become increasingly apparent especially in the colder weather. In warmer weather the engine will start up smoothly with no apparent vibrations. I can only think that a belt may be loose and adjusts itself over time as it warms up? Or could it be that the glow plugs are failing? I will take it on a motorway run to rule out any DPF issues and to burn off any spot accumulation due to previous urban driving. Edit - also showed a message on the idrive which read something like 'preheating please wait' so assuming glow plugs required more time to heat up. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  11. F10 Lowering Springs

    Hi all New to this forum. I joined as I'm having trouble finding Eibach springs that will fit my car and lower the height by more than 25 or 30mm. I'm looking a drop of about 40-45mm. I've seen people with these installed on their car but i can't seem to find anything online. If you could point me in the right direction or offer some advice on other good springs too that would be nice Thanks Chris
  12. Life's been very busy these last two or three years and I've had precious little time to do anything remotely resembling hobby stuff - particularly on cars and so on. The best I've managed is to buy me an SLK a year ago and I've managed to run around large parts of the UK with the top down and the sun shining. I even got the SLK into a classic car magazine as part of a buyers' guide over the summer. My BMW has been great - reliable, quiet, comfortable and still great to travel in but now I have the SLK I've effectively halved the already small mileage I was doing per year - and it shows. As she is an old-school diesel, she doesn't like short journeys and needs to do lots more miles than she does. Also, as she needs four new tyres, a Inspection 1 service and a new windscreen I felt it was time to put the old girl out to pasture. Therefore, I've been looking around for a petrol replacement. I'd been thinking a 3-series or maybe a C class possibly - even a Jaguar - but looking around it seems that petrol versions of these cars are like hens teeth to find - there are so few! So off we went to a car supermarket to kick some tyres and... my choices were all deemed 'too small' by SWMBO. Apparently none of them had enough room in the back (guess who'd asked our six foot son to come along???) Anyway, instead, we ended up looking at E classes, 5 series, an A6, the Jaguar again, a Passat, a Mazda 6 and others. Just sitting in the cars quickly got us down to three possibilities - the E class, the 5 series and the A6, So I then started looking for real-life petrol contenders to drive. The nearest of seven petrol E classes for sale in the UK was 60 miles away; the nearest of three petrol A6's was over a hundred miles away and the nearest of twenty BMWs was 12 miles away. We tried the E class first and we didn't like it. The ride was too soft and the car wallowed a lot. Oddly, the car (an E350 CGI) also seemed slow to react to steering and acceleration (even in S-mode). Then we looked round for 5 series examples and found a 528i SE fairly close, five years old, 44K on the clock, the right colours and the right major toys (but no sat nav or xenons - both of which will keep me busy as Projects!) and drove it on Sunday. We both felt right at home. Ride, response, the feeling inside, road noise, seat comfort all good. The car has a single tiny stone chip on the bonnet, unmarked alloys, good tyres and was 'reduced - this weekend only'. So we bought it and we pick it up tomorrow. As the garage only offered me a low part exchange for my old girl I've stripped out the stereo and popped the original radio cassette back in. The removed kit (a sub, an amplifier, head unit and cables) I'll sell to help fund my new 5-Series projects.. So it looks like I'm back to stay - and, with the new 5-series arriving, I'll hope to become a more active member once again. So ... Hello again. Savcom
  13. Nice? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/332012557161?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  14. Hi guys, as they say in Game of Thrones, Winter is coming. I posted in the general section without much luck so hopefully I can get more advice here? Can anyone recommend a good tailored outdoor car cover for a 2016 F10. I want It to protect from ice and snow in winter on my drive and be breathable in case I have to put in when car is slightly damp for overnight. I would like a proper fitted one rather than generic size. Thanks so much.
  15. F10 Outdoor Car Cover

    Can anyone recommend a good tailored outdoor car cover for a 2016 F10. I want It to protect from ice and snow in winter on my drive and be breathable in case I have to put in when car is damp. I would like a proper fitted one rather than generic size. Thanks so much.
  16. I only received one key for the 2010 530d, BMW F10 that i recently purchased. Can you please tell me how much it would be to provide a programmed key would cost? Thanks!
  17. 520d 2011 plate engine cut off suddenly on dual carriageway as accelerated after a roundabout. Brought car to stop never started again. Error message said fuel supply/ max peformance not avail drive at mod speed - couldnt for invious reason. had to call recovery who could not fix it and towed to dealer dealer now repaired - swapped ekta control unit as faulty and battery. however car has now lost that quick injection of turbo when i used to slighlty tap the accelerator. It'd stopped doing it and takes that second more to shoot off if you mnow what i mean it's like that pull you feel from the front of the car well that has gone and it just feels weaker when pressing the gas. Is this normal? Any ideas? Will it resolve in time - only repaired yesterday. Please help. ps not under warranty many thanks
  18. Hi guys, i have a 2010 f10 520d and upgraded the satnav from the 2010 maps to 2015 maps last summer. Everything has been great and being able to use the postcode was a huge bonus. For or some reason this has now stopped working. I can input a 7 character postcode and it brings up the road name, but when I select the road name it only guides me towards the centre of the town the road is in. No good in a town or city. Has as anyone else had this issue and how did you remedy it?
  19. Please quote me how much it cost for BMW F10 5 series Coolant& AntiFreezer, will I able to buy this from your Hereford dealer as well?? Model: 520D Auto thanks
  20. Hi All I'm going to Silverstone in the morning for the F1. However, I've realised that I won't be able to power my 12v coolbox off my car as the 12v sockets in my car do not remain powered once the car has been locked. My car is a 2012 F10 BMW 520d Efficiency Dynamics model. I have 4 x 12v power sockets in my car to the best of my knowledge: - Under passenger glove box - Front cigarette tray - Center console - Boot Does anyone know if there is a way to get a permanent 12v supply to any of these power sockets in this car? Thanks in advance. Neil
  21. My 535d

    Here's a couple of my car with my new wheels fitted today.
  22. Just picked this little beauty up last night from Arden BMW in Kent! The difference between my 2007 E60 and this is phenomenal! The F10 feels so much more modern inside!
  23. This was in Dublin, Ireland recently. F10 MSport stolen without key - CCTV footage Scumbags
  24. I've been looking into 18x8" wheels for summer tyres, to replace the 17" with winter tyres still on my F11. I thought others might find the information I've dragged up useful, so I thought I would post it all in one place. Wheel/Tyre weights Size Style Weight, kg Weight with 14kg RFT (225/50R17 or 245/45R18), kg Delta to 236, kg 17x8 236 9.93 23.9 0.0 17x8 327 11.88 25.9 2.0 18x8 350 11.40 25.4 1.5 18x8 281 11.90 25.9 2.0 18x8 365 12.13 26.1 2.2 18x8 237 12.48 26.5 2.6 18x8 330 12.60 26.6 2.7 18x8 328 12.77 26.8 2.8 18x8 234 11.10 25.1 1.2 F07 wheel 18x8 234 11.10 22.2 -1.7 F07 wheel with Michelin PSS Sources: http://www.bmwstylewheels.com http://tiredb.com http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/ The take aways from this for me are: 1.There's little difference in weight between 225/55R17 and 245/45R18 tyres - RFT's come in at around 14kg, non-RFT around 2kg lighter (although there seems to be more variation in the weight of non-RFTs). 2.There's quite a range of weights for the OEM wheels. 3.The F07 234 wheel is significantly lighter than the second lightest, the 350M, and is cheaper (AFAIK there shouldn't be a problem fitting an F07 wheel, other than the fact that F07 and F10/11 use different profile tyres, but waiting for supplier to confirm). 4.The humble 17" 236 is actually quite a light wheel. RFTs can be deleted in other markets? Ummm.... sort of. In the test I did on the French BMW site, you can indeed delete RFT's from a new car configuration, unlike the UK site where you can't. However, it appears you can only do this for 17" wheels, as, as soon as you up the size, the delete option is no longer enabled. Type-approved non-OEM wheels X10 seems to be the most prevalent, but there are a couple of variants. Wolfrace X10 is not RFT compatible but Uniwheel X10 18" is RFT compatible (also sold under Rial brand I believe). Still trying to confirm weight of Uniwheel X10 18", but the 17x8" version apparently comes in at 10.8kg, based on a post on another board. If that's true then it compares well with the OEM wheels in that regard. So..... still undecided (except I want to keep RFT's).... but if the 18" X10 comes in at 12kg or less then I am not sure I can justify spending £1300 on BMW wheels rather than £500 on X10s!
  25. So i popped into Arden BMW in Kent today, after popping into another dealer down here yesterday, to have a chat about options of changing my 2007 E60 530D for something a bit newer, and 2 hours later I have an order for a nice new F10 sorted! and hopefully will be with me within the week!
