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

    It was a garage in Dumfries close to where I live but probably miles away from you I can't see your location in your profile but if your close enough to S.W. Scotland let me know and I'll did out the phone number for you.

    Broken headlamp adjustors

    It’s amazing what a killer job this is for 95% of us, I did 2 sets one after the other and the harder to reach adjuster was a challenge every time. I found removing the round cap on top of the lens made it easier for me but on one I had a small bit of old adjuster stuck on the thread which I only realised after what seemed like hours of trying to screw it in (a small angled mirror showed it up).

    Hard to start in cold after around 15 hours

    Yes I was going to suggest that, did you know that when it's below 3 degrees you're supposed to turn the ignition on and wait for the glow plug coil symbol to turn off before starting the car?

    How cold is cold ? Does the glow plug/preheating symbol appear in the instrument cluster ?

    Loose Wire in Engine Bay

    Could be one of the factory plugged connectors for options this vehicle does not have (same wiring loom on all versions). One of these on that location is secondary air vacuum solenoid.

    M Sport anti roll bar sizes

    Powerflex list 24.6 25 25.6 28 29 is your car an early se? , based on what's listed I'd say your measuring it correctly but for peace of mind ask your chosen bush supplier.

    Tried about 43 times now, just given up. I have access to a snap on scan tool, so should be able to get live data up and see from there.

    I'd speak to the bush supplier with regards to measuring the anti-roll bar. Either call them or message them, they should be only to happy to help.

    Have you watched any of the YouTube videos? There's a nack to it that you get used to. Ignition on, but don't start the engine, Wait for the normal display to come up, Press & hold the trip button untill the secret menu appears, Add up last five digits of vin (in my case 20), Press & hold trip button to exit channel 01, Press button until you get to channel 19, (19._ _) it'll say lock on underneath, Press the trip button the same number of times as your vin code (mine is 20), Release the button on the number of your vin, It's now unlocked & you can navigate to the hidden temp or just go through the features no 7 is the hidden temp, press the trip button until no 7, then start the car. Your hidden temp should be showing & working, next time you stop it'll return to normal functions. So you need to do this every time you wish to use it, but you can get quite quick at it. If you mess up, take the key out of the ignition, leave for a minute & start again. Hope this helps, it can be tricky to get it but when you do

    Major Service query

    Exactly, a Google search and then validating with more than one reference to Shell. As has been said before, getting specifications or manufacturers of oil from the Internet or any other source is nigh on impossible to get a verified statement. Even BMW’s own brand stuff there is speculation rather than validated fact as to who makes it. So, you have to make a best educated guess which is why whether the car is 3 years or 15 years I’ll be using the ‘best’ oils according to my personal research and opinion.

    Torque Specs Wanted for Strut Brace Screws/Bolts

    The screws are stretch bolts so should be replaced each time they are removed. For the screw circled connecting the front-end strut to the suspension turret - 56Nm plus 90 degrees For the screw at the front of the front-end strut connecting to the cross connection over the radiator it is 28Nm plus 90 degrees. However, you should be able to remove the air box cover without removing the strut.

    Interesting. I think I'll check Bimmertool out as I can't get my INPA to work for love or money!

    I would normally agree but this year I noticed him under the bonnet which I thought was unusual enough but he had a long hard look at the egr. At the time it was present but blanked. Now it's off completely I need to go to my 'friendly' MoT guy...
