    Starting problem

    I had my inlet manifold cleaned when the decoke was carried out. Once the carbon is removed it frees everything up nicely... I’m surprised it needs replacing?! My 2011 525 has done 87k miles so very similar to yours

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

    Me and a good friend got hold of one together. It was much cheaper to do it ourselves. It’s a very interesting process and we quite enjoyed doing it.

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

    Yesterday did some suspension work and cleaned out the inlet manifold, got the walnut shell blaster out for a de-come. Car is much improved with better economy and power.

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

    I went with the wife there to test drive an X3 for her... I couldn't get away quickly enough! Jump starting cars in the showroom and reving the nuts off them. The car we went to see had horrendous smart repairs, coffee spilt in the carpet and smelt really bad.

    New car

    Have you coloured the grills on the X5? You must spend a small fortune on your cars! How many times have you changed in the last 3 years?

    F10-upgrading subwoofers

    i started out with the base system, I added tweeters in the BMW oem sails, upgraded the mids and subs with the MB quart items. Once these were all upgraded I added an slimline amp behind the dash - the difference is amazing. Don't bother upgrading the subs alone as you won't really notice a difference. The mids and subs are on the same channel anyway - if you want to make a difference with minimal outlay I would just add tweeters then add bass blockers to the mids.

    Awful car!

    I’d much rather have a focus or Mazda 3 than a new 1 series. The usp is gone with the loss of 6 cylinder and rwd.... If I absolutely had to have a new hatch back

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Very true, my plan is to run my 2011 F11 for as long as I can - I have had it nearly 4 years but I still really enjoy it. I am not quite sold on the G31 either so have a lot of thinking to do before I choose it's replacement

    M54B30 engine pinking/pinging/knocking/detonating

    I had this problem with my e39 m54b30 back in 2009 when purchased and only really solved it within the last year or so. The car is now coded to run cooler as when cruising the temp is allowed to increase raising the temp in the head causing pre detonation. Now The car does not pink under load when being driving carefully or hard
