  1. Has anyone come across an online guide for removing the EGR valve on a F10/F11 (N47n engined) 520d? All the guides I've found (use a completely different layout and unit). Mine is the BMW Part No. 11717810871 (made by Wahler). There's a load of gubbins that would have to be removed to reach the EGR and I'd rather not be a pioneer when surely another DIYer must have done this job before.
  2. Dear all, I seen a message pop up recently claiming my key remote battery is low. I am sure this is a DIY job and not an extortionately priced dealer job Does anyone know if doing so risks the key losing its synch with the car? Are there any gotchas basically. Does anyone know exactly what battery I should buy? Is this it --> https://www.amazon.co.uk/Duracell-CR2450-Lithium-Battery-Blister/dp/B0042KL882/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522325477&sr=8-1&keywords=duracell+2450 While I am at it am tempted to change the other case also, the BMW logo button is completely knackered by other keys and it just a silvery mess now. Am sure there must be some OEM cases on ebay! Thanks again!

    M Sport suspension

    Hi all, this should be a fairly straight forward one to answer (most likely Mr Ashton) but can anyone tell me do cars with M-sport suspension fitted have airbags at the rear??? I suspect not but i`m almost certain that when i got in the car this morning to move it I felt the rear rise up, and my daughter has commented before whilst standing outside the car that the rear looked low.... I cannot see anything obvious when I look into the wheel arch just the usual strut but no obvious spring either.. It was dark this morning so figured guys in the know on here could tell me (or girls to be politically correct) I`m sure they don`t have airbags just on the rear but you never know with the way BMW spec individual cars.. Thanks in advance
  4. Hi guys, just wanted to share my recent audio upgrade completed today. I bought an F10, 520D recently and as we all know the OEM speakers are not the best. I start searching for compatible speakers and found the usual suspects, Focal IFBMW, MTX, Bavsound stage one, Match, ESX, Harman Kardon etc. I am very price conscious and usually search for days until I am settling for something and in this case, I focused my attention towards the Focal range as I like the brand and had 135VR's and 165VR's in one of my previous BMW E46 coupe. It was out of discussion paying £5 - 600 for the IFBMW and as I wanted to have high-quality sound for the best price I started to look for 4" Focal speakers. I found quite a few and the interesting thing is they are not advertised as compatible with BMW, I am sure they will put the price up if they will.... I bought a pair of these for the back https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-AUDITOR-R-100C-4-10cm-2-Way-Car-Coaxial-Van-Door-Dash-Speakers-240W/262351114177?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 And a pair of these for the front https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-Integration-ISC100-4-10cm-2-Way-Coaxial-Car-Speakers-200W-Total-Power/401093581124?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well 2 pairs of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10cm-4-Front-Rear-Door-Speaker-Adaptor-For-BMW-X3-2007-Onwards/351735857820?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well you will need 4 x 61138373583 and 8 x 61130006664 from BMW for a neat setup. The result is, to say the least, impressive with very clear midrange and crystal clear highs. The Integration speakers in the front have a rotary tweeter which you can adjust to face the driver and raise the soundstage and you really have the impression that the sound is coming from the pillars. All in all, for £160 all in I find it very hard to believe that there is a better solution to upgrade your sound system to match this setup and wanted to share with you all, and believe me you will not regret it!
  5. Hi Guys Haven't been on for a while but thought I should share this. Very good friend of mine has (had) a Lovely F10 M5 and last night on his drive it got broken in too and had almost all the electronics stolen from it along with interior items It wasn't a have a go hero, it was clearly organised and according to the police they hit 3 F10s last night in his area (Kent) but its a widening issue. First, they covered the movement sensor on the floodlights, then the CCTV camera! Cut a hole in the front bumper and filled the alarm siren with expanding foam, along with cutting the wires to it. They also filled a compartment behind the rear wheel with expanding foam, then drilled into the driver's door and gained access. Once inside they stole all the electronics, screens and M Interior bits. This was done on his driveway, in a built-up neighborhood Forensics where on site within 20 mins as they were taking samples from another car locally.

  7. I have here 4 x BMW Style 328 wheels for sale. I used these as my winter set on my 5 series which I no longer have. The wheels have Nokian W3s on them: 245/45 R18 100V XL. They have about 6-7mm tread left on them all round. They are non-run flats and really made the car drive smoothly and quietly. I would like to point out that one of the alloys has a small crack in it. This developed in the 1st year I had them and resulted in some air loss at the time. I had it welded (see photo) and there have been no further issues subsequently eg air leaking. I am aware that some people prefer not to run a welded alloy, but I just want to be as open about this as possible. There are also some minimal scuffs on one of the wheels and the BMW hub caps have some signs of weathering. I actually didn't use those ones, opting to use the ones that were on my lease car instead as they were brand new. I am based near Uxbridge, London. I don't really want to get involved with getting such large items couriered so these are for collection only please I am looking for £750.00 £700.00 £575.00 ono NOW £500.00 Any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks, Kamal

    Immobiliser Problem

    Hi everyone, hope someone can help with advice. I have recently bought a BMW 525D F10 2010 reg. it came with a key fob (see photos) recently, I have been having issues with the car starting up. You press the start/stop button and nothing happens with the engine and only turns the electrics on or off. Sometimes even the alarm goes off. Inside the cubby box under the steering wheel(see photos) is some light with a button on it. I think the key fob with the button on it is for this. Whenever I have this problem the light flashes. Not sure if this is a 2nd immobiliser? Has anyone come across this before? Is this a after marker immobiliser? Can I remove it? Can I disable the alarm? I spend about 5/10 minutes pressing the button on the key fob, eventually the red light stops flashing and allows me to start my car. On the display is says ‘ignition on’ sometimes when this problem occurs. No faults on the car showing. any advice would be greatly welcomed and thanks for reading my post, Owain
  9. Hi Guys, Have a 2011 BMW 525D SE with Bluetooth but unable to stream music which is what I would like to do with Spotify. Any recommendations in regards to what to use?
  10. I have a set of wheels with winter tyres that I have used for two winters for a couple of months each time. They have a set of 245/45 R18 Pirreli Sottozero. They have depths of around 2* 5mm and 2 * 4mm approximately. There are no scuff marks on the wheels. There are however slight signs of wear that can be seen in the pictures. I have had a repair done to 2 wheels that were on the near side, this was due to pot hole damage, this work was completed by Prestine wheels, Woburn Sands, these are the authorised BMW wheel repair centre. I have the invoice available. This did not involve any welding. I do not want to get involved in posting such a large item so ideally collection only, I am based near Milton Keynes. Any questions please ask. £600.00 the set.
  11. Hi guys, Hope your all enjoying the snow lately here in the U.k.. I drove over a pot hole not too long ago, which had cut my front passenger RFT tyre and left a slight buckle to my alloy which wasn't visible juntil the tyre was fitted. Anyway I had the tyre replaced and new genuine alloy fitted but noticed that my car had lost the tight steering feeling it had prior to this, and the car seems to wander alot as well as require some over steer when turning around roundabout etc. I had a 4 wheel alignment done to the car by BMW on KDS but this didnt solve the problem and i have just hated driving my car for a few months on long and short journeys, however I have only just realised that one of the features in my car is "Integral Active steering" which i understand is what provide precise turns and less steering input which I used to have before the damage to my tyre and alloy. I have checked through my wheel alignment sheet provided by BMW and noticed that under vehicle spec is states: BMW 5 series F10 2010 - Rear wheel Drive model: without AFS (Active Front Steering) Sport suspension with lower height ride. I cannot understand why the technician has stated without Active Front Steering and there is no mention about Integral Active Steering? I have done some research on Active Front steering and Integral Active Steering which seem to be very similar and the characteristics are exactly what I had with my car where I had full control of my car on fast and low speeds, didn't turn the steering much when doing turns etc. I have now noticed that my rear tyres have wear on the inside and besides the car wandering and pulling left, my steering has to be kept towards the right to keep the car straight yet i find my self constantly having to correct the car when driving straight. Did the technician carry out a wrong wheel alignment on my car at the time and missed out anything such as active steering calibration which other forums have stated? Many thanks for your help in advance.
  12. OK, this may seem like a fairly sraightforward question but one ive yet to find a very clear answer, My 5 series has the following 2 options (522 and 524) Xenon lights and adaptive headlights, but I cant find exactly what Bulb I need to replace the slightly pink and bound to fail soon one I have in the drivers side lamp. I keep seeing that it is DS1 Xenon, but are they all the same as far as wattage etc is concerned?? and should I chose to go for a different kelvin rating does this cause any issues?? im thinking 6000K?? Also can someone explain to me how to tell if i just have Xenon or Bi-Xenon?? I have noticed that my cornering lights in one of the lamps is halogen and looks very orange compared to the other bulb so assume i just have Xenon? Thanks in advance. Mr Ashton im sure you have this covered off somewhere in that knowledge base of yours
  13. So its nearly time to say goodbye to my car which has been amazing for the last 2 1/2 years. Has anybody got an idea of what is a reasonable price for this type of car now?

    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

    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
  18. 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

    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

    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
  21. 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.

    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
  23. 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
  24. Nice? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/332012557161?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  25. 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.
