    Brake disc temp

    remember as well if you do start stop driving with the auto hold function this will increase heat towards the rear discs
  2. Hi guys, ok so my F11 is starting to show the rear LED strips starting to flash/fail which means my LED driver boards are starting to fail. I would rather repair mine if I could: 1. Because the units are good and the LED units are good. 2. it would be a waste to bin. Is there anywhere in the UK that sells the LED driver boards as they just pop out, I know this is quite a common repair for USA but struggling to find a UK seller? Ryan.

    New alloy wheels Bmw F11

    yep I had to go though all of this crap lol, it was a lot of money to blow on some alloys and was unsure if they would fit but I can confirm the 351m staggered alloys fit perfect, my f11 is a 2011

    New alloy wheels Bmw F11

    no they were same size all round on the 18 but if you get 18" with the wider tyre on the rear as a 9j alloy then I really can't see you having any issues at all. just to add as well even with the wider 9j on the rear and the spacer I had an air bag fail few months left and had to drive home with the rear of the car on the bump stops lol and still no issues at all.

    New alloy wheels Bmw F11

    hi, I had 18 on min 350m but changed to the 351m which are 19 inch pal. I uses them stock with no issues and then I put some spacers on the rear 15mm again no issue with a very good stance.

    Bmw f10/11 audio options.

    no one done any f10/11 audio upgrades?
  8. Hi gents, hope your all ok? Ok to cut to the Chase, I am really missing the Individual audio system from my m5. MY f11 535d M sport has a very good spec but only the base audio setup (x4 mids x2 subs), it's not a bad system but missing the extra kick. I am thinking about adding tweeters, changing the mids in the front doors and rear head Liner, change the floor subs from 6 to 8 inch. I think the floor in all of this is the head unit or amp so I take it it would all have to run though a new amp? I have taken a pic (rear left in boot) and not sure if that's the audio amp? I am not looking to rattle my next door windows but just upgraded to the sound I use to have in my m5. if there any guides to this along with wiring a amp on the f11? any help welcome.

    Glow plug broken in engine!!

    That's one of the great things about forums like this, if a thread can help a fellow member then that's all good. You have to remember I do this sort of thing day in and day out and even with the right tools it still happend, to me so it's just a case of pot luck lol with glow plugs lol. One thing I will say is purchase a set of glow plug removal sockets as they allow a 360 o movement to help stop the most common of glow plug breakage which is an un even pressure causing the plug to snap. I will say once you have done the work you have done is go back in to your software and delete all your DTC codes as if it still sees the inactive codes it can stop a regen. THEN Go back in to your software a call up the force regen as if your DPF is to blocked (bank sensor 2 picking up high back pressure) then that will also stop a regen. Do them things and report back, if you need any help let me know.

    Glow plug broken in engine!!

    Hi guys, sorry for the late update but just have had so much on its hard to find the time. Any way as an update to the above, I had ordered the correct vac line and replaced all and they are in a 16mm sleeve for heat protection. Car starts fantastic so it was time for a test drive, first thing was delete all the DTC codes on the car and go on a trip to see what happens. Car runs fantastic however I notice a big drop in performance, the car felt like a 530d so still moved but not a monster diesel the 535d is! Once back at my workshop I plugged in to the laptop to find error codes with my turbo units and vac units, after a look around the engine bay I was thinking it must be something silly as the turbo units are fine, any way after some testing and stuff I found the vac lines I replaced I had connected the red line and the white line to the wrong connectors. So swap them around and remove all DTC and take for a test drive and WOW the thing is alive!!!!!! I have been running the car for a few weeks and it is fantastic and the engine is so smooth. And no DTC codes. This was the first time I really drove it after the remap and now I can feel all 360+bhp and shit loads of torque, I also managed to time a 0-60 (on private road) of 5.3sec as well so thumbs up, not a million miles of my late m5 (e61) but not quite the match of a f10 m5 lol It's going back to the rooling road next Saturday for a check up on figurars to which I will report. Ryan.

    Winter tyres worth it?

    Only my 2 cent worth but few years ago I bought a 2008 ford focus for this reason. For the price of winter wheels and or tyres I could buy a whole car Few years on still have it, I had changed my m5 for the f11 535d and it sits in a warm garage in the winter time

    Ok guys so no work to the car again for a week or so as house work calls lol. I did start her this morning in the workshop as started on the button and sounds sweet Only thing I not happy about is the 3 vac lines that run over the turbo, the vac pipe I got is a bit to tight and around 8.5mm think so a bit bulky. I have ordered some 3.5mm with only 7mm O\D. Once here I will re do with a little how to guide as it's a comment issue.

    Your guess is as good as mine lol lol. I think it lost its code as it has had the battery disconnect for a few months
