  1. Could I ask please what sort of price I'd be looking at fitted for a 520D or if the improvement is only more noticeable on the bigger engined cars Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

  6. The metallic BMW lettering on my driver's door sill cover popped up today and unfortunately my foot caught it putting a crease in it. Before I glue it back down does anyone know please if it's possible to get the metallic lettering only. The parts listing suggests it's a whole new unit at probably ridiculous cost but just wondering if there are any alternatives It's no 5 on here https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=XB52-EUR-02-2013-F11-BMW-530d&diagId=51_7854

  8. I've stupidly marked mine with tar and glue remover and wondered if they are a cheap and easy replacement please. Are there any alternatives that won't cost an arm and a leg such as having them wrapped ? Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

  14. Wondered if anyone had personal recommendations please. Looking for unit based rather than mobile preferably Norwich as it makes it easier to get home but can work with Suffolk. Standard alloys on a 63 F10 520D SE. No scuffs, cracks etc but I do have corrosion from the centre

    peeling leather

    It might be worth getting in touch with LTT Leather Care to see what they think may have caused the issue https://www.lttleathercare.com/contact-us/ I understand they can be very helpful

    peeling leather

    Is it a new car or pre owned. If pre owned just wondering if it's a previous repair coming off Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Dash finish and leather cleaner

    For the leather either Dr Leather cleaner or LTT. You are correct if your leather is coated it won't need conditioner. For the dash I'm currently using Sonax Xtreme cockpit cleaner which leaves a very Matt finish Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk
  19. I upgraded the map via USB from the connected drive site but lots of my map has disappeared e.g roads totally missing. Dark areas for towns but no roads at all. I rang BMW who advised to update Connected Drive in the car and wait for 24 hrs. If this doesn't solve the issue I will need to take the car in. Just wondered if anyone else had this issue as I can see I'll end up paying the dealer to fix and then arguing with BMW UK to try and get my money back Car is a 63 reg 520d SE Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    Stained leather

    Any specific leather cleaner should work. I like Dr Leather. It sounds like you haven't rinsed off the old cleaner. Id take a damp not saturated clean microfibre and wipe over an affected area to see if that helps Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Stained leather

    What did you use. I had a similar issue with Dr Leather. I contacted them and they said it may have reacted with a previous product that contained beeswax. Their advice was to clean again. I did this and all was good. Might be worth cleaning a small area again or alternatively contact the supplier of your product for advice. The other possibility is was the leather hot when you cleaned it ? Possibly your cleaner dried before you were able to remove it ? Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Juddering wipers/g30

    If as suggested you've removed the coating there might be the possibility that one of the wiper arms is twisted see this thread here https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?s=0744338cb9c0df0affb73faa281cdef2&t=1123024 Those with more experience might be able to suggest how you could tell Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk

    Any 530e owners out there

    I'm currently running an F10 520D but with impending retirement believe a PHEV will suit my needs. For those owners could you please be kind enough to share your experience of living with the car good, bad or ugly. It would also be helpful if you could advise what your previous vehicle was and a comparison. Finally (I'm not asking much !!) did you test out any other models before choosing the BMW. I'm toying with the idea I may not need the size of the 5 series so considering a 330e or ....... whisper this a Volvo S60 T8 Sent from my SM-T800 using Tapatalk

    Any 530e owners out there

    Thanks for your helpful comments. I didn't realise the earlier version did such low electric mileage. Around 30 miles electric would work for me as it would cover pootling around generally. Full electric doesn't quite work yet with the lack of a standardised charging structure for the times when doing short but longer distance breaks - nearly said weekend but realised soon that won't apply to me [emoji3] Sent from my moto g(7) plus using Tapatalk
