    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.

    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
  12. 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.

    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.

    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.

    This has got to stop!

    Followed a 118d the other day with a big ///M badge on it.. What a knob

    What are you doing now?

    Just got up after being out to 3:30am on a call out. Most teenagers would call that a bad night out after coming home so early Today will be spent relaxing in the garden, although If i do get some energy back I might go for a blast on the motorbike

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Took the ol' girl and the wife, not the same thing to Hereford this weekend to visit some family. Just under half a tank for about 340 miles, kept it in the speed limit most of the time, bloody cameras everywhere, except for a mini blatt up a steep dual carriageway hill near Birdlip on the way back, i had to get in front of the tractor-trailer which i could see up ahead as it went back to single carriageway.. That's about it for another year

    Tailgate plastic trim removal

    I just removed the switch cut the wires and shorted them together to open the glass part after my switch gave up

    Mot time( no dpf)

    A gutted DPF is very different from no DPF and replacement pipe visually

    EGR delete/remap

    From what I've read with the EGR blanked a 530d will have better of the line acceleration as there is pure air going in without being mixed with exhaust gasses. Also If the EGR opens during acceleration then you'll lose your charged air through it resulting in loss of power which would be your initial issue. There's no reason you cannot have any combination of EGR delete whilst keeping regen for the DPF if they know how to code

    <£50 DAB/USB/AUX Solution

    I am not a big fan of DAB in a vehicle.. I drive around East Sussex in my work, my van has DAB and it's always losing signal.. Sure the quality when its working is great but give me FM anytime. FYI so far the only DAB station that works practically everywhere is Magic and that can get very depressing at times. It's not the van either, I have had hire vans from Transits to Vivaro's and all of them are the same

    OK there's a new breed of annoying car drivers I came across this weekend. They are Jaguar and large Peugeot owners.. I have never been more pissed of with any other car then them.. Even Audi drivers are better. I set of just before 7am and before i got a mile down the road I had a iPace driver overtake me and then proceed to slow down for every bend or car coming the other way, yes i was doing the speed limit too, so i then followed him with main beams on until he finally turned off. The Peugeot drivers, it wasn't just one of them cut in front of me without indicating on an A road because they were in the wrong lane for a roundabout, I did in one occasion overtake him and cut back in front before the roundabout.. I think it's jealousy
