    It's shit but ....... I sold my 520d in 25 minutes. Can't beat it for coverage
  2. Haha, yeah, I'd had enough. After spending £2500 on engine repairs in the last 2 years enough was enough. I'm now BMW less for the first time since 2008 I have leased a new Golf 8 1.5 Life...£250 a month, £250 down. No repair bills! The ICE is amazing - it's the same on the whole range from the Life to the R. Impressed but hankering after a 5 to tinker with.

    Piper's E61 520d Touring

    Car sold to an awesome mechanic. Goodbye 520d. You looked great but cost me a fortune. I am now BMW less for the first time since 2008.
  4. A mechanic bought the car, great guy. To get it running he cleared the DPF by doing something down the right hand side of the engine with a big screwdriver. Still leaking injector but the car was able to drive and he drove it home.
  5. Thanks. That would cause the loss of power?

    I have no idea how my old 540i made it to 206k on the original chain guides. Pure luck.
  7. Lovely n47 has another problem. Under acceleration, particularly when going up hill, there is no power. Took off engine cover, the injector closest to the front of the engine has oil coming through, bubbling at the base Easy fix of new injector or deeper problems? What ya reckon.
  8. It's good, no doubt. The screen definition is loads better and all the old functions and CCC screens are still there, but now in wide-screen.
  9. It was great, no hassle, no fees.
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114832587836 That is just the starting price, willing to strike a deal for my BMW5 buddies. Had a respray only a month ago, it's complete and comes with arch liners, 1 aero tray and wing mounts for anyone wanting to upgrade from an SE. Forget what you may read on certain websites, SE liners etc do not fit a Sport bumper, they can't be just 'trimmed'.

    After selling a few things recently, there is no difference in the fees between the new payment method and the previous with PayPal...so, still a rip off. Also, as Andy says, the fact the buyer receives the item before the seller gets paid is shocking. Paypal gave the seller another layer of protection, whenever I had an issue I found they always ruled in my favour...as for eBay, it's been 50/50 even when it's obvious I'm in the right and should be reimbursed.
  12. An excellent Andream E60 unit, one month old, perfect condition. £190 posted. All leads included.

  14. My 520d has died today (POS) so my Andream is up for sale, literally hardly used, as new. Bought and fitted around a month ago. £190 posted. Edit - SOLD
