    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Same on my Macan, the steering wheel cancels the SS, so does Sport and Sport Plus modes
  2. E39touring

    New alloy wheels Bmw F11

    I thought they were a ratio larger on the sidewall but I may be assuming that as most are on 20 inch wheels

    But the tyres are different on the 6 series, they are taller.

    F07 535d 2015 for sale, best spec

    Following a visit to the local Porsche dealer yesterday my 5GT is now up for sale. It was registered on 28th July 2015 and the BMW warranty runs out on its 4th birthday, so still 8 weeks left. This can obviously be extended by the next owner. It has BMW full S/H, and I have always serviced it before it’s been due. I bought the car on 12th Oct 2016 when it was just over a year old and I extended the warranty for one year on its third birthday as I had no plans to get rid. It has a couple of mods, 21 inch style 128, 10J rear and 9J fronts, I bought these new from Cotswold BMW for my previous GT in June 2016 and they were refurbished in Feb this year. The wheels are shod with fairly new Michelin Supersports 245/35/21 front and 285/30/21 rear. The second mod is a full Gladen HiFi install with 6 channel amp driving component speakers in the front and rear doors with 8 inch subs under the seats. This was installed by me and I have a full album of pictures from the install, all cables have been felt taped and proper connectors used. At the same time 12 sheets of Dynamat was installed to the insides of the doors and boot - this car is whisper quiet at speed. I also had the front bumper resprayed and properly baked when I bought the car as it was peppered with stone chips even after it’s relatively few 14k miles. The car has zero stone chips to speak of now and the paint is much better than the original. I even have a rear bumper protector to stop scratches from things going in and out of the boot, this can be removed if not wanted. The car has a set of roof bars and four cycle carriers that can be purchased for extra. The spec is: 535d GT M Sport in Sophistico Grey with ivory white leather 36500 miles but still being used daily 21 inch style 128 wheels with Michelin Supersport tyres and 10mm spacers all round Gladen stereo upgrade, 10 speakers and 6 channel amp head up display 16 way comfort seats with lumbar and active bolsters heated seats panoramic glass opening roof with electric blind 4 zone climate serviced by BMW last year enhanced Bluetooth and iPhone 7 snap in cradle in armrest. reverse camera speed limit display xenon headlights sun protect rear glass Pro nav with 2018-2 maps installed electric hatch electric steering column power folding and auto dimming rear view mirrors cruise and speed limiter There is probably more I’ve forgotten. This car is immaculate and needs nothing for a long time. I have new Brembo brake pads that will be part of the sale, but I haven’t needed to fit them yet as front and rear have plenty of meat left. The car also has a connected drive and RTTi subscription until October. I’m looking for £22250 ovno Thanks for reading.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Of course they will be dated on a 2014 car. The latest I drive is much improved.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Agreed too. At least a 550i could be believable, but not 550d

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    But its easy to upgrade the HiFi, I did it on mine.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    These springs are almost as unreliable as the air springs of the F11 and F07!

    F11 Speaker and Amp Upgrade

    I did this job on my F07 using a Mosconi 6 channel amp and Gladen components. Will you be coding HiFi sound?

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Very nice, any other mods done/planned?
  14. E39touring

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Same here. My F07 has HUD and comfort seats which I love.

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Nope, mine is July 15 reg and the reverse camera was an option. I do have the reverse camera but do not have the surround view.
