  1. just worked it out that is has standard tyres and has puncture repair kit in the boot
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. i have the oil service and vehicle inspection service messages displaying on idrive. i have done the major service which included oil,oil filter,pollen filter ,air filter and fuel filter change which of these 2 service messages do i reset first using the odometer button on the dash?

    E81 BMW 118d stalled!!

    so far the car has not stalled again,so it appears the dodgy breather hose was the culprit and replacing it has sorted the problem out

    E81 BMW 118d stalled!!

    i replaced the crankcase breather hose which was leaking and hopefully this will stop the stalling. time will tell
  8. the plastic breather hose is leaking so how does one get the bottom end of the breather hose off.? I tried to pull it up with pliers and pressing the tabs but will not come out. i could not find any info on the internet. Could someone help?

  10. thank you. so what kind of software will come with the cable? is it a one click install ? i suppose i will be able to do diagnostics /erase codes only?

    Good Oil Offer on

    ok that's a good price then
  15. some of the newer bmws require adblue. can one use adblue from any source such as supermarket fuel station forecourts or costco or does one have buy from the dealership?
