    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    I quite often play them at there own game, I'll buy whatever I need from my local euro car parts branch, get the job done then order the cheaper part from car parts for less and return it to euro car parts under the year long no quibble returns policy. Most people probably plan their work with sufficient notice to order the cheap part online in the first place but I have a seemingly never ending stream of people who knock on the door asking if I can have a quick look at something or other and I like to get the job done and our the way.

    Zf5hp24 fluid

    Hi all, I have a zf5hp24 transmission in a 2002 x5 4.4i, i believe the same gearbox is used in the 540. I need to replace the transmission fluid, I've had the engine out the car so torque convertor and cooler are both empty meaning I need about 10 litres of fluid. The zf spec fluid is lifeguard 5 at around £22 a litre, Mobil LT71141 is also suggested at £11 a litre and finally there seems to be a febi oil that says its oem spec at £60 for 5l what are people using that they've had success with, £220 on the zf fluid is alot to stomach with the filters on top Thanks Chris

    "Diamond" key - new battery or replace?

    If you've got an electric toothbrush put it on the charging base for that saves aimlessly driving the car

    Is my dpf regenning properly?

    Ignore this, after telling it to regen a few more times the status changed to active and temps hit 600ish degrees
  5. Hi all, I've been trying to force my 525d to regen and I'm not sure if it's completing properly. With car warmed up at idle I have exhaust temp before cat of 170ish degrees Exhaust back pressure of 6.88 mbar and temp before dpf of 140ish. If I set enable regen and request regen in ista, drive at 70ish in 5th the temp before cat hits 300ish the pressure increases to 90ish mbar the car will then judder a bit and the temp before cat will hit 400ish and the temp before dpf spikes to around 350ish the back pressure drops to about 60mbar. The juddering then stops and the temp before dpf drops off to 200ish. At no point does the dpf regen status show anything but not active, it doesn't show a regen has been completed at all, how can I tell this? Thanks Chris

    making cover

    I'd leave it alone, I've ran blanked off egr and no cooler for the last 2 years and no mot tester has commented on it, they don't spend much time under the bonnet during an mot

    I do that every time it gives the flat tyre alert and a couple of weeks later it does it again somethings evidently upsetting it and it's jot the tyre pressures so I'd rather just disable it

    No I don't reset it everytime I check the tyres I shouldn't have to given I use the same pressures from the door plate each time.

    Rear spring options

    Evening, Noticed today whilst doing some work on the car both rear springs have snapped at the bottom, typical when I've just arranged to sell it to a mate. Whsts the best option for replacement it's a 2005 525d with the msport suspension Thanks Chris

    Noticed earlier my rpa screen now has the initialise option greyed out and below it says system error which should stop the flat tyre notifications , I need to work out how to remove it from the vehicle settings screen completely to satisfy my ocd
