    DPF/CAT Delete - Is it one unit?

    It is one unit with the CAT situated at the front closed to the turbo but, it can be left in with the just the DPF being chiseled out.

    Who were they mate, looking to get mine done soon....Had the first one done by Auto Trans up in Preston who were great but a bit to far to travel from Coventry at this point in my life
  6. Oil filter housing gasket could be the source, not sure how easy a job it is to do though as I got my indy to do mine back in the day when i had my E39.

    ELV fault

    Have you tried a different battery, might be worth a go

    This is a long shot, but try disconnecting your IBS sensor and giving it a whirl.

    Rear Spring Snapped

    Not doing the work myself so don't know how hard they are to replace and will find out tomorrow if its a back seats out job etc...Also, the spring ends fit into a unit on the shock which is part of dynamic drive/stability thingy I guess. Not pleased that aftermarket ones were not readily available but at £130 each from a dealer, I took the hit.

    Rear Spring Snapped

    Apologies for posting in the 5 section but its because there's always a good response Basically on my 7 the right rear spring has snapped and from looking at realoem it appears that there is no separate spring part listed: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=KM82-EUR-07-2011-F01-BMW-740d&diagId=33_1458#37126796928 From looking around, there is a Eibach Pro Kit available: https://www.autodoc.co.uk/eibach/7518566 But i'm not sure if these are lower than OEM. My car is a 740d M sport 2011 I reckon they'll be okay but would welcome any suggestions/alternatives if found?

    OEM Makers

    Hi all, I will be purchasing a new MAP sensor (part 13627804742) in the near future as have been getting intermittent errors every few months or so which causes the car to loose turbo power until i restart but on having a look around on the web there are quite a few manufacturers of the MAP sensor ranging from and NGK one at circa £25 to a Vemo one at circa £75. Would anyone be able to confirm if the cheaper ones are as good as?? TIA
