  2. At 70-80mph my F11 touring has quite a bit of road noise. Until they wear out I'm still using run flats, so a bit of road noise is to be expected Going around a long right hander the noise reduces; going around a lefthander and the noise increases. . . and the difference between a right and left hand bend is very noticeable. The noise is definitely coming from the nearside, and I think is from the front, but difficult to be 100% sure. Below 70-80 the differences are less noticeable, but there none the less. I've had a reputable tyre company check out the tyres, then swap them round, with no change. When the wheels were off they checked the hub for any sign of slack, but reported none. Could it be a wheel bearing? Or could there be another cause? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  3. Help! I'm getting a little judder / kick around 12 - 1500rpm and quite a lot of black dust when under load, so much so that there's a constant black mark around my rear bumper / exhaust area Now then when I turn the engine off there's a brief clicking noise from around the egr / vacum pressure valve, now putting two and two together I disconnected the valve (part number 7.02318.00) unbelievable no judder and no smoke under load! Would it be possible for somebody to confirm if 1) it's ok to drive with this plug disconnected? (It's drove so smooth and without any obvious issues for the last 10miles) 2) which part could be faulty? I'm getting married on the 1st July and really can't afford any £1000 garage bills at the moment. Somebody suggested spraying a tin of egr cleaner through it which I did, but with no effect. The only thing that cures it is disconnecting the plug to what I believe is the vacum pressure valve? Many thanks in advance for taking the time to read this post
  4. 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
  5. F11 520D

    Afternoon, I am contemplating buying an 2012 F11 (78k on the clock). I currently drive an E91 2.0L (petrol) - which I hate (previous to this was an e46 320Cd - BEST. CAR. EVER..) The E91 was bought as a short term stop-gap, as I have what the medical world officially call "super swimmers".. Yep, I messed up and got the Mrs pregnant.. Anyway, its time for the E91 to go. I have seen a 520D (cannot emphasise enough the love for my last derv). I am very much aware of the issues with the N47 engine and this is concerning me a bit. As much as I'd love to go down the 530D route, there isnt many (read "I havnt seen") 530D manuals out there let alone many in my price range.. so i guess I'm open to thoughts here. Are the later N47's better? I have read the tensioners are much better and incorporate a ratchet mechanism in there as well as being oil (pressure) driven - Do these seem to be holding out? As well as the above, I've spent most of my time looking at the (obvious) engine issues, but is there anything else obvious I should be mindful of?.. NBT over CIC? what's the real difference?.. TVM, AP
  6. 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
  7. F11 Music

    Hi all, First post here, first fool questions... We've just collected our 64-plate F11 520d SE Luxury, Professional Nav and the following (standard) setup: 6AC Intelligent Emergency Call Intelligenter Notruf 6AE Teleservices Teleservices 6AK Connecteddrive Services Connecteddrive Services 6AM Real Time Traffic Information Real Time Traffic Information 6NS Enhanced Telephony With Extended Sm Komforttelefonie Mit Erw. Smartphon 6WA Instrument Cluster W. Extended Cont Instrumentenkombi. M. Erw. Umf. 609 Navigation System Professional Navigationssystem Professional 654 Dab Tuner Dab Tuner 698 Area-code 2 Area-code 2 The previous owner has left some music on the HDD, and I can rip from CDs in-car, but everything I've tried comes up as 'Unknown Artist/Album/Track etc': I presume this is to do with the Gracenote DB being out of date - can anyone point me to the most straightforward way to update it? Or am I wrong - it does seem like a bit of a weakness on BMW's part. I'm also struggling with getting music onto a USB stick and then into the car: I think this could be because I'm tripping over Apple Music DRM? An idiot's guide to how to do this either via Apple Music/iTunes or Windows Media would be really useful. Cheers!
  8. I've just installed the CTEK charging panel in the boot of my F11. I didn't want to cut the side panel so I just wired it up and left the connector panel in place just under the "tool kit" so to access it I just pop the access panel off and make the connection. The positive wire is connected directly to the +ve accessory terminal on the battery and the negative to the same chassis bolt as the main negative cable from the battery. This way I am still upstream of the IBS sensor which is connected directly to the negative battery terminal. I've circled my connection points in Green in the pictures. You can see I then connect the CTEK 2.5m extension lead and run that out of the rear passenger window that I will leave open just a smidge and connect the charger to the end of that cable.
  9. Just wonering what alloy wheels and tyres you guys use on your F11 or F10. Mainly interested in aestheticall look and of course comfort and etc. If possibly you can post some pictures that will be nice. Thinking about getting dark grey or black wheels instead, any suggestions, thanks
  10. Newbie and BMW Convert

    Note to say Hi. Long time Jag XF driver, recently converted to my first BMW (2016 F11 535d) and loving it, though I do have a few newbie questions that I will throw to you experts at some time. Look forward to contributing, perhaps my first will be a critique of the Jag XFS and the F11 535d?? Who knows C00lhand
  11. Hi all, I am Ian, from Bournemouth. Just got myself a F11, M Sport touring sport auto in Carbon Grey (not sure of the name of the colour) No pics at the moment as i am away in a hotel but will be sure to post some! 2011 - 60 plate, with 100k on the clock. Really chuffed with the car, and can't wait to go over it with my machine polisher!! A few questions.... My lights (xenons) are all white, apart from two (i think they only come on when cornering?) does anyone know if i can replace with white and if so would you be so kind as to give me the bulb type/link etc. Interior lights - thinking of changing to white LEDs, i've seen on here a thread about doing this and ordering them all individually, does anyone no of a link to a full set, and is it hard to do? Also, is it worth it? I did it on my wife's car and it made a huge difference, but that was only a crappy peugeot! My auto lights seem stupidly sensitive, the dipped headlights are on ALOT, much more than my F30 3 series did, is this a sensor issue? should i clean it, is it on the of the rear view mirror. If i had to fault the car, it would be on its lack of interior storage, the door card pockets are stupidly small, and there isn't enough space to dump stuff in the centre console, but on the whole I love it. I am using it for work and doing 30k a year! It's got good service history but i think i am going to get a full (non dealer) service done soon, what else is worth changing? whats the interval on the timing chain and gear box oil (sorry if they've been covered before, they just popped into my head!) Cheers, Ian

  13. 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!
  14. Morning one n all! Need some help. Fitted a power lead for a traffic camera to a 2014 F11 2.0d for my bil. I used the power adapter in NSF footwell and ran cable up a pillar and along headlining....... Camera works and shuts off when ECU closes down......... The problem is, now, for some strange reason, the SRS warning light is staying on, the map lights aren't working and neither is the auto headlamp facility......... I have managed to read SRS fault code (930AB2: INTERMITTENT), but can't clearvitvwith the scanner I have. I have rechecked everything I have done and other than NS airbag switch on NS panel, I have been near nothing that SHOULD result in these issues........ I have spent 30yrscin the motor trade and am competent at most vehicle based repairs, but have not come across these specific issues anywhere before..... Please, please, please does anyone out there have an idea ? The vehicle is still under warranty, but I would like to know for my own piece of mind... Thanks for looking and for any help or advice offered. Mike
