    Brake prices - why so varied?

    Textar discs and pads for me, car does not like any other brands

    ZF 6hp26 oil change

    Sorry to hijack this thread but does anybody know of a tried and trusted place to get my Autobox serviced in Coventry? Had it done the first time by Auto Transmissions in Preston which tied in nicely with going to Old Trafford for the match. Unfortunately going to Old Trafford is currently not an option due to work commitments so can't get up there too often if at all. Not sure if that's a bad thing at the moment
  8. Are the codes you're getting obtained using DIS as I'm sure there is a smooth running test that can be done. Not sure if it would get to the point of starting but it may give you pointers as to where to start looking fwiw
  9. Then the next 2 cheapest parts to replace would be as what Stew99 has suggested imo.
  10. Car will start if glow plug controller is dead. As it gets colder then it may struggle a bit but it would not be the source of the overall problem. It's certainly a weird one given that you had it running for 10 mins before and then it died. Sounds like a fueling problem but I'm no expert I'm afraid. As an idea...Can you hear it running with just the ignition on, if so how long for?
  11. Cranks sensor is a good shout but £800 for a glow plug controller change...I would expect them to stick each one up their arse for £800!!!
  12. Clear all the codes and a different/similar/new battery and then see how she behaves...It might also be worth disconnecting your IBS lead as mine blew whilst changing the battery and the car would not start with the new battery fitted.

    Make sure to check the inside of the alloy and to give it a clean regardless, same goes for the hub mounting face.

    Shuddering on exeleration

    Best of luck mate, in my opinion I think my car was just telling me that there was just too much power and something (don't know what) was starting to struggle to cope. Hopefully you'll get to the bottom of it.

    How long has the remap been on? I only ask as I had what seems to be a similar issue and in all honesty I never got to the bottom of it but what I can tell you is, is that I changed pretty much changed every fucking thing I could have...In the end I got the remap, redone with reduced power and the car (is still in the family) is running fine with no more rumble. See below, for back in the day when I had the issue with my E60 530D Manual:
