    SuperDave RIP

    Hi everyone, Pete here - Dave's younger brother. Very sadly Dave passed away in the early hours of Monday morning. He had deteriorated very suddenly after battling against cancer for a few years. Literally the last thing he did online was post on this forum - it just shows what high regard he held you lot in. With that in mind, and knowing his lifelong passion for 5 series, we were wondering if there is any chance of having some kind of driveby at his funeral/wake. It will be held in the Chester area in a few weeks time on a weekday at lunchtime. At the moment this is just the bones of an idea - we have no idea if this is even something that could happen / be organised. What do you think? Thanks on behalf of SuperDave's long suffering wife, and family. Cheers Pete

    Engine Rough Running- off she goes on a recovery truck

    Fingers crossed its a decent repair then and the drop off is without any more issues.

    I don't think they like being pinned down on warranty stuff with proper paperwork by giving it out. Less flexibility when it comes to the bmw claim side - although I thought everything was recorded to the T in order to ensure traceability.

    Comfort access - boot closing automatically

    Imagine it's a codeable setting within the car, although I don't have comfort access on my G31 - and it's never closed on me yet.

    First Service

    If we're talking 530d's then many older ones seem to need the high level oil fix at some point which is a software update, makes sense to combine with a service from a customer service perspective and savings against a call out/recovery cost.

    Similar message to what I got from Enterprise, they would only give me a leggy 320d after chasing round local branches and initially I got a mini - said bmw were their best customer due to the recall backlog. My high level fault was sorted with a reprogram after a couple of days with Halliwell Jones chester (who impressed, somewhat unusually!). Usually I'd have said Williams would be a better bet so it's unfortunate theyre quoting weeks - remote app was handy to see when the work really started though. Lean on your potential fleet supplier at BMW, worked well for me a few years ago.

    Central Heating Boiler question !

    Been lucky, our Vaillant hasn't skipped a beat since install ten years ago. Had it serviced a couple of times for original warranty continuity but otherwise just check the inhibitor and empty the magnetic trap periodically - so far, so good.

    Yep, think dealers/bmw probably embarassed by how limited non-EBT functionality is and don't want to mention limitations. But very easy to code in and resolve. A ten minute job with e-sys and an E-net cable.

    They're pretty poor in the rain and dark. Not a patch on the previous f10 xenons I'm afraid - half the light output which is why they don't need headlight washers as std.

    It's here!

    I approve.

    Tyres prevent wheel scuffing

    I've still scuffed one of mine very slightly , the 19s are bloody lovely on the G30/31 and a very easy clean too!

    This couldn't actually happen, could it?

    Ffs. Can you turn him off please. Its like a reading a badly crafted version of Catch-22.

    Talk about unnecessary additional costs...
