    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!
  3. 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..
  4. 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
  5. 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)

    e32 750iL Calypso Red

    The F01 was very good, really enjoyed it. Comfy and balance of speed and economy. The 740D my freind had and it was similiar to the 730D but slightly quicker. I would go 730d over 740d to be fair

    RTI GAP insurance

    I always stick to ALA. Hoping to never need to use it (and hope you guys never do either!)

    I had an F01 before the G11 and they've certainly continued to evolve generation to generation yet retain their familiar driving style and switch layout

    e32 750iL Calypso Red

    Thanks Steve. it is quite impressive from what I remember, haven't driven her for 6 weeks due a broken ankle and won't be for a while yet either! San Marino Blue with alot of extras and features. Would love to see the G11 parked up against the E32 or even E38!

    Stunning motor. I've got a G11 750 but the E32 is just something else.

    Active Steering Module is 'FUBAR'

    I I think they can be. There's a guy on facebook "Samy PC" who does coding and would be the one person I would ask as he does alot of repaits/coding/retrofit.

    Stupid, stupid!

    I only use the app, not used the website to control the car to be fair. Even then, anyone could download the app quickly and log in for you. If you were at work for example then perhaps a colleague. Can always change the password if it's someone you don't trust once your home - in such an event, get in the car and turn off GPS tracking so they don't know where you live via iDrive

    Back in a BMW!

    lovely. Welcome back! F31's are a great place to be and alot of info about retrofits/coding to truly make it your own

    peeling leather

    Also depends on the warranty and if it's the manufacture backed first 3 year or the subsequent insurance backed AUC or extended warranty I think. BMW may track manufacture claims to trend any common issues but insurance backed may just go to underwriters and not actually cross the desk of BMW themselves?

    Try a different dealer. Service varies not only by dealer brand but also location
