    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    How my youngest Daughter sees the F10

    Thanks, she charges about £55 a picture on A4 paper.. She spends hours doing them so in my mind she should charge more. It was just a thing she did between jobs

    How my youngest Daughter sees the F10

    That looks amazing, how does she think of doing that.. I certainly have zero artistic talent.. Must be a youngest daughter thing. Mine does portrait pencil drawings of peoples dogs, here's one of our GSD.

    Angel Eyes Melted

    He probably works for the BMW spares department and is trying to boost the sales of headlight units

    phone craddle

    There is a thread in here telling you how to remove it, from what i remember it's not that easy unless you go full butcher mode with a saw
  10. I would be reluctant to get another 535d knowing what i know from this forum. So many people have had major problems with their e60/61's in here and I have possibly one in 9 years of ownership, I say one and that's my Autobox which is having a 2nd to 3rd issue now and then. My remap and DPF removal was back in 2012 and still running sweet.

    Reasons to de-badge

    My e61 was de-badged to have some body work done on the back, I didn't want them back on. I like to keep em guessing although the low speed speed turbo whistle gives it away to those who know. 520d owners needn't bother the oval pipe and 4 pot sounding engine gives it away

    Strange items that puncture your tyres

    Watling tyres in Catford, London had someone with a spark plug go into a tyre

    E60 Air Con leak help

    Look for oil stains to the condenser (First radiator) The chances are though this is where the leak is. You can get sealers you add to the system bit like rad-weld.
  14. I took my motorbike up to London to have a get together with old work friends. Riding through Essex the next day going through a width restriction I heard a loud bang, immediately the back end of the bike got a bit 'Jiggy with it' and my rear tyre pressure sensor flagged up with zero PSI, I knew it would be unrepairable so I managed to ride it slowly to a friends house about a 1/4 mile away. I won't bore you with the shit service the RAC gave me, over 3 hours and a few phone calls to tell them there's no point in sending a normal van I'm going to need recovery because it cannot be repaired, but heres a couple of pictures of the hole (it's a 190mm tyre) and what my local tyre guy found inside the wheel. The bike is a BMW K1300R if you are a biker and hoping to work it out it's a bloody big hammer on the steel rim wheel weight.. What are the chances of that happening Oh and I wouldn't purposely use the RAC but it's part of my bank account add-ons i get. I would normally use Green Flag given the choice.

    Air Con - Quality Enhancement

    They'll probably recover the refrigerant check for leaks the recharge it, change the pollen filters and dump some de-odouriser in the air intake. All i would do is change the pollen filters as long as it's blowing nice and cold.
