    2 door E28

    Yes, I prefer the old days, nothing about being an old fart, everything seemed so much easier then. People actually talked to each other. My twin 18 year old boys have not known life without WIFI, social media etc and when I try to explain to them how it was they look at me as though I am off another planet.

    Car valeted, ABS light now on

    I'm being a bit cheeky here, but I don't suppose that you could post a how to link when you have changed your hubs as I have a brand new complete pair of hubs to fit to mine as the ABS light comes on at 30 mph and I have been putting this off As I have not summoned up the courage to do it yet even though I am a confident home mechanic and the tools to do it. Would be good to know what and if there are many pitfalls with this job.

    Auto gearbox Select Array Switch

    Hi Dan, first thing, I'm not sure about manual versions of our cars but the gearboxes in the autos do give off quite a bit of heat and this is usual even though they have oil coolers fitted so I wouldn't let this worry you. The issue with non start after stopping when hot sounds very familiar as this is a similar problem that I have experienced before and could almost point to either the speed sensor or reference sensor on the gear box. Both sensors are the same part number and should read 900 ohms when working but you will need to read the resistance next time it won't start but don't take my word for this, best also read Duncan's non start sticky. One other thing, when it won't start, if you select the gears up and down the box a couple of times then it starts this could point to the inhibitor switch. With the hunting issue, have you tried cleaning the AFM thouragly with cleaner as it sounds that your tick over revs are slow if it stalls when you select reverse. Hope some of this helps, let us know.

    Hi Jam, thank you, but I know what you mean. These wheels for me only suit certain colour cars and I'm really liking them back on mine, it's a shame that their bloody metrics though. Mind you they are far better than some of the old cars I owned when I first started driving 39 years ago with crossply tyres, now they were really frightening

    Ah, that looks like the switch that only allows you to start in P OR N and not in gear Like a inhibitor switch. I'm a bit puzzle why the specialist would need to ask you for this if they erer ever a real respected auto service. All you want is to drop off your pride joy and get then to do the preasure checks and other checks with their equipment. what are you're issues.?

    Hi Dan, what is exactly the symptoms with you're gearbox. Is you're car equipped with the switchable sports option?From memory there is no switches from the actual selector as it is cable operated and the electronics are within the gearbox.
  10. Hi Mick, makers name is Fuyao.
  11. Hi all, new screen fitted today via my windscreen policy on my classic insurance. £70 excess. My question is even though the main dealer no longer lists these, are they really in short supply ?

    Now Autumn is closing in the M535i will see even less road use until spring so as my BBS alloys are needing a referb I decided to put my original metrics back on so I can do the work In my man cave over the winter. I know metrics are hated by most for handling and tyre cost issues but at my age they suit my sedate driving requirements and I'm quite liking my car back to its original look. this is what I done today.
