    Dpf regen help?

    His has glow plug codes as well as the module. My 330d doesn’t have any fault codes for them but still didn’t like starting when it was VERY cold last winter. Like roofer says, it’s not easy to get them to regen, everything has to be spot on which is a bit silly really, no wonder so many people have problems with them.

    Dpf regen help?

    My mate was having problems with bad running and a weird delayed throttle response on his E60 530d. I showed him how to get the coolant temp up on the hidden menu. It showed it was only running at about 70 degrees so I suggested the dpf regen wasn’t working as the engine has to be up to full operating temperature. I did his thermostats then tried to use Carly to force a regen. Sadly it wouldn’t work as the dpf was completely blocked so he’s had it gutted. Its now running a hell of a lot better but is still smoking quite a lot which brings on the EML. It does keep going off on its own so I’ve suggested it’ll just have a build up of soot in the exhaust which will take a while to clear by driving the car hard. Even driving it hard the MPG has gone up by 5 already. Get it removed.

    Burt Reynolds has died ...a legend I think!!

    I feel it's only right to watch smokey and the bandit tonight at 17.05 on ITV4 with a beer or few as a tribute to the legend

    Very nice. I don't usually like white but it somehow looks great on the 3 series especially with red seats. The guy I bought the wheels for my E92 had a white m sport E92 with red leathers and it looked beautiful, much nicer than my Monaco blue anyway. Do BMW still offer the wonderful 3.0 straight six diesel anymore? I know yours had the later version than mine but it's been a brilliant power plant since it came out in the 90's so would be a shame if not.
  8. Also had 2x 2.8's as well! An X reg and a C reg special so you could say I'm a bit of a capri fan
  9. My nan bought this very early (1968) mk1 1300 gt when it was only 6 months old so before I was born (1971). It was garaged all its life which didn’t stop it rotting out! She finally replaced it in 1989 with only about 60,000 miles on the clock with a bright orange 1500 dolomite so I took it on and did some filler work as well as some welding to get it through it’s MOT, just! It was originally a pale blue but I had it respayed this dark metallic blue for some reason, I was young and daft! After a year the MOT came round again and yet again it failed on structural rot so I sold it for peanuts probably! How I wish now that I’d stored the car I grew up with for the first 20 years of my life! That’s a lot younger me circa ‘89 or ‘90 lol anonymous photo sharing

    Any BMW Club GB Members Here?

    I very nearly took the plunge a couple of months ago but had a proper good look at their site and forum. I too couldn’t see the value in it for £45 so didn’t bother.

    Rother Valley meet 2018

    I should be there even though Ray has dis'd my old E46 in the picture above by putting a big Red Cross through it!
  14. I didn’t get my BMW love from my dad, he always loved rovers and nowadays range rovers. The only BMW’s I can remember him having were a 1602 back in the 70’s and an E34 525d touring in the 90’s. The 525 had been lightly rolled but apart from dents in all the panels, roof included it drove perfectly. He has been in the car salvage business all his working life so never had a car without ‘issues’ i discovered my BMW love in the early noughties when I bought an E36 325tds for a few hundred quid and loved it. Had 7 now!
