  1. did you fit this part yourself or did a garage do it for you?

    Oil level too high.

    only had the problem once with both cars the 530d has a faulty glow plug control module which on reading the forum could cause the issue on that car. The glow plug fault was diagnosed by doing a scan with the CARLY scan tool . never really figured out what caused the same issue on the bmw 320d -possibly too many short journeys and hence regeneration of the DPF never completed properly.

    5w30 or 5w40 n47

  5. the car is a 2014 bmw 320d -f30 series car. the car recently had an oil service done when i filled it up with 5 litres of shell helix ultra ect 5w-30 oil . (5 litres is what is the maximum capacity at oil service recommended by bmw) the oil level check on i-drive says oil level ok yet when i check it on the oil dipstick -the oil level is well above the maximum mark. i also checked the oil level with the warmed up engine running on level ground via the i-drive system and it also shows the oil level is at the maximum mark should i drain off half a litre as the manual oil level check on the dipstick shows it to above the max mark or should i go by the i-drive level which says oil level are ok?

    having looked at that oil -it says it meets bmw LLO4 specs and 0W 40 viscosity is also ok as well but it is the brand i have an issue with- ,i would rather go for the shell one-that is just my opinion

  12. just worked it out that is has standard tyres and has puncture repair kit in the boot
  13. the car is a2015 F20 Bmw 118d . having recently bought the car,the seller had fitted 4 new tyres which the Antares Inges A1 XL tyres. should this car be fitted with runflat or standard tyres ? There is a bmw factory spec tyre sealant and compressor kit in the boot of the car which makes me think that the car came with standard tyres as opposed to runflats. can anyone help if they know the answer?
  14. the car is 2011 e81 118d 2 litre diesel i have been getting an amber battery warning and a yellow car on the ramp warning on the check control when i switch on the car and when switching it off.(my car does not have i-drive) i did charge the battery with a ctek charger but the problem persists. the battery in the car is 9 yrs old and i think needs replacing so i bought a Varta one of the same spec-(80AH 800CCA AGM battery) so does anyone know if the c-teck charger can be left connected to the car while doing the battery change to avoid losing time ,date,elecredic window and radio settings? i am hoping to register the battery using a carly for bmw which has a battery registration app tool.Has any one successfully used the carly app tool to register the battery? your comments would be helpful
  15. thanks ,I reset oil service first and then i-drive was telling me that vehicle check was 90 miles overdue, and I successfully reset this as well
