    My F01 - software updates

    Yes he offers remotly. I've seen his facebook pages suggesting he travels around aswell. There's also a chap called Sam Miah of GA coding on Facebook. On the transmission front, if I was having mine done then "BMW Connected" based out of Essex area would be my choice at present.

    My F01 - software updates

    Some independant coding people like Adam at DDCoding can do the iLevel updates. I think I paid £50 on my old 2013 F01 730d a few years ago so maybe allow £70?

    E60 M5 finally bought

    Great to see an update. I would say throw some money at it and then even if you decide to sell it, you can price it upper end knowing it's well sorted.

    BMW Stopping Wheel Storage

    Maybe it relates to inflated tyre, deflated maybe acceptable?

    BMW Stopping Wheel Storage

    Is renting some space at one of these storage places an option? You can get ventilated storage with insurance for not alot. Plus you'll be able to access whenever required and use any additional space to stash other car parts you may want to hide from the mrs!
  6. have you tried turning the recirculation on? Could be wind speed coming through the vents when they're open and not on recirc?

    Any other jubilee silver cars about?

    there's some lovely colours about but hard to find. I got extremely lucky to get a San Marino Blue G11 - never seen another on the road!

    Price of replacement brakes (540i)

    try the bmw-service website, i've found it alot cheaper than "in-store" prices. For comparison, my 750i brakes (front pads and discs) are about £750 on the website but well over £1k in-store. The online price is actually cheaper than buying the parts alone! (when I need them though, they'll probably have gone up)
  9. Have you tried vcheck? Even buying from main dealer, I always use vcheck as it shows up stuff HPI doesnt The date on the bonnet could be anything, maybe it was taken off to be repainted under paint warranty or to fix chips etc..also the struts - aren't they on a life expiry thing when you have to replace them after every so many years? Not that most people do so it would be strange considering it hasn't been in the dealers. Could be anything, if it looks presentable and IF it's been repaired then provided it's to a high standard then it's ok? Scrap yards tend to write as someone else has said but they tend to put the model number and chassis code, the date seems strange. Someones made the effort to put it away from the main panel but easy to find. Maybe the bonnet was taken off for something and the 9 denotes it's part number 9 which they removed from this car so they could sequence putting it back. Some smaller garages number parts to remember the order in which removed.

    Any plumbers/diy people on here?

    Unscrew the on to the right, screw it in to the one on the left, use and then replace later?

    Mortgage / House Move Advice.

    When we last moved, I used Liam from LT Mortgages (username Sarnie on Pistonheads - that's how I got to know him). Great advice and free until you actually apply. Try giving him a shout

    What goes here - see picture

    agree with Sir Anthony, jack pad. plenty on eBay and quite cheap. Curious why he removed it though!
  13. I did a vcheck and it gave the full VIN (i always do both vcheck and HPI). vcheck also checks if cars ever been a taxi or unrecorded write off etc..
  14. A cheap HPI check on the reg should give you the VIN. If it's "the" car then maybe worth spending the £5 but auction prices are being reported to be wild at the moment with many reaching over-book. Worth checking recent sold prices
  15. Rediagnose. If you can hea the fuel pump on ignotion then it could be something else. Is the car still original or have you coded new keys or remap etc...which could have upset the DME? Is there any other errors? Try unplugging the DME and re-plugging it ensuring a good connection. Also check the earth point. It sounds moe CANBUs disabled than a physical fault and could be anything from a fuse or lose wire to a failed module or water ingress. Also just to check - the cam chain hasn't snapped has it? (everytime I see/hear 20d engine, it's first thing goes through my mind)
