    F10 520d oil breather pipe

    blocked valve? Which would have led to over pressure and the original pipe tearing. Check the full breather system and look for blockages. Suspect it's gunged up elsewhere within the system and the pipe was the weakest point.

    Quick question

    spotted this by accident - wrong forum section dude. F10 would be more relevant

    F10 iDrive service history update

    As sjak92 days. Failing that, keep the receipt and that'll act as service history. You can buy a blank book also and use it in the traditional method.
  4. Enterprise didn't have any when they called me Friday to check all was well. Still in a 330d and no news on when I'm getting my 7 back yet. Actually filled it up yesterday as I've given up doing a couple of days at a time. Enterprise gave it empty so needs to go back empty but without knowing how long I've got it, difficult to know how much fuel to put in!
  5. I read something similar when researching the EGR recall. It maybe a loose boost hose or something. I would get BMW assist out if under warranty or get it back in to the dealers. 1.5 weeks does seem very quick for a replacement though, extremely lucky to have your car back so soon!
  6. Mines 2 weeks in now and still no visibility on parts available. Had a chat with BMW UK and they offered me alternative hire cars from enterprise such as a Mokka! Will stick with the 330d for now but missing the 7's comfort and features. Always thought putting the miles on someone else's car would be fun but nothing beats being in your own car.

    Snow foam recommendations

    BH Autofoam is my go to. Decent cleaning power, not part of a 2/3 part system either. I also keep a stock of Magifoam as it gives better effect but the cleaning power isn't as good as the thinner BH AF

    Anyone in/near Solihull?

    If it's Sytner, can they not send you a video? I won't be passing there until Saturday (which is a maybe) otherwise I'm passing on Wednesday.

    Anyone in/near Solihull?

    I often pass it, work just past it and live south of it by about 20 miles although not really planning to be in the office now till next week. Description of the favour and I'm sure one of us will try and help.
  12. Mine's in at the dealer and quarantined. I asked them how much it maybe worth towards another or for a sale and even they won't give me a price as they've no indication as to how long it'll be awaiting the part and therefore depreciating sat in the yard. Enterprise car's been authorised for 3 months!!

    Approved Used Prices

    Lots of factors such as how long they've had it, market price and interest can influence they're appetite to reduce the price. How does it compare to the market asking prices? You can check how long they've had it from the URL on Autotrader for example as it usually gives the date the advert was first placed - always a good conversation point. Also relationship with the dealer. "My" dealer knows what I'm like so will show me what they've usually purchased the car in for as PX and we then work the price up from that adding AUC check, any work required, any extras I want etc...
  14. Well My F01 is now quarantined. Had a 420d coupe thing for the weekend (awfully under-powered and overly thirsty) and returned that today to be swapped in to an Enterprise special. A 6 month old 330d with a full array of hire car features such as kerbed alloys, scratches all over and the faint smell of fags being masked by overly powerful air freshener. No indicative timescale from BMW on the availability of parts so time to get comfy in the 3er

    White dots on map?

    I think the white dots are roads that are closed.
