    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

    2015 F31 330D MSPORT TOURING

    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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.

    2001 E39 M5 - SOLD

    Nah, better than that! Mapped 330d I was looking for a 335i before I bought mine but the more I read about the turbo issues they all suffer from the more I got cold feet so reluctantly I went to see mine because the spec was right. As soon as I felt the torque all my doubts went away. Easily 40+ mpg is also a bonus.

    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!
  16. 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!

    Mercedes E63s

    I enjoyed my brief spell in the supercharged E55. Like all the big AMG engines the sounds were amazing. The downsides,apart from 15mpg, were the open diff which was ridiculous and the only way to fully turn off the traction control was go into a hidden menu and then rolling road mode. All well and good but it did something to the brakes and made them really crap!
  19. I want to get my sons 18th birthday pressie from there but it's a bit over my budget so was wondering before I get something cheaper whether anybody knows of a discount code, if indeed they even do such a thing. P.M me if you need to keep it secret. Cheers.

    Halfords discount????

    I think I will go take another look in machine mart because the Clarke chests did look decent.

    WOW! What the hell happened to that tyre? Looks like somebody’s driven 10 miles on it flat.

    Halfords discount????

    I used to use draper stuff but find the halfords proffesional stuff better and as already said the guarantee is priceless. The socket sets with all the other stuff that comes with it when on half price sale (more often than not) is a complete bargain imo.

    Halfords discount????

    Yep, thats how I see it. My son has broken a torx bit also, we popped into Halfords expecting a long question and answer session, what were you doing at the time blah blah blah. Not a single question!!!! Just went off out the back and came back with a replacement. Didn't even ask for the receipt.
