    Not quite a 5er owner yet...

    Welcome to the forum. In the meantime, loiter around the F11 tech section here, plenty of good info and advice to be had there.

    Main Dealer Service During Lockdown

    Or.... find a decent BMW indie who will most likely charge a whole lot less than the main dealer. No need to worry about warranty validity either.

    Looks like a free extension, make the most of it!

    Rear Suspension - Extremely stiff

    No idea about the suspension but it sure looks good!

    interior mirror mount oem number

    You could try the 3 Series sub section here, failing that a 3 Series forum.

    Style 66 Staggered 17" Alloy Wheels SOLD

    They look great, but style 66s don't come in 18" diameter- (your description of wheel one and two).

    Bmw e60 530d

    Welcome to the forum Ben. You will be best off posting this query in the E60/61 Technical section further down the home page. You will reach a specific audience of owners there who may be able to help.

    Alloy Corrosion - Warranty?

    That does sound reasonable - not a lot different to regular alloys.

    DAB Radio - Should This Work In My E39??

    Do you think that's a one off job, or every time you change from one DAB frequency to another?
  11. My eldest daughter bought this for me last Christmas and I've finally got around to trying to install it. I had my doubts about it when I opened it, but kept them to myself as she was so excited, bless her, that I could have DAB and phone connectivity in my "old banger BMW"!! I can pair it to my phone and the unit does what it says it does, but nowhere in the instructions does it talk about how to actually channel either the DAB function or phone through the car's radio and speakers. It just says it will play wirelessly through the car, like magic I suppose. Anyone had a similar gadget that can give me some pointers? Thanks

    Alloy Corrosion - Warranty?

    Completely agree. I'd actually avoid buying a car with diamond cut/lacquered wheels for this exact reason. Hugely expensive to refurb as well, they're really not practical on real world vehicles.

    Silverstone Auction

    Saw this last week. Really enjoy Harry's videos, completely unpretentious and watchable bloke. I always learn plenty from him. If you've not seen it, the Arctic Rolls is particularly well worth watching.
