    window not responding to key

    was told maybe this is to do with the diversity antenna.....could also be because the windows are tinted..

    Passenger seat bypass

    I've contacted a (UK) seller on ebay regarding this...still awaiting a response. Just thought someone on the forum may have experienced this already.

    Front fan not spinning

    thanks. took back to Highams Park in the end....'shaking' appeared to be engine misfire and needed a replacement engine coil..Hose to radiator had a leak also... If the temp gets too hot will there be some sort of warning on the dash anyway?

  5. HI, noticed this morning my radiator (FRONT) fan is not spinning. havent driven it since. recently got it serviced at Highams Park and since then I've had to top-up the engine coolant/antifreeze (with BMW Brand). could this have any link to this issue? also noticed the car 'shakes' more in the low revs than usual.. any sugestions?

    Engine Coolant 2005 523i e60?

    shakey in the lower revs....can't accidentally pull off in 2nd gear without the whole car jerking about. here's what i did what i did to put the coolant in... 0.75l of BMW additive, 2l of water. turned engine on for a minute or too (as advised to enter the coolant with the engine an ambient temp) then turned off poured in additive 1st, then water turned on engine and heater of full (still had the coolant cap off...seen it done like that on a youtube vid ) turned engine off closed cap (didnt have to fiddle about with any valves,etc) -coolant warning now gone -car seems more shakey................did i do something wrong?!!

    Passenger seat bypass

    what confused me is that if if bypasses the error, that's all well and good, BUT ive seen some that have the seat occupancy on OCCUPIED or NOT OCCUPIED.(some of these bypass devices come with a seatbelt simulator, i believe...?)....therefore if it is occupied the system would start pinging (alerting) you that the passenger does not have their seat belt even if there is noone physically sitting in the seat,......would i need to fasten the seatbelt everytime, or is this not the case
  8. Hi all, after just over a year ive decided to finally sort out the passenger seat airbag error. Since taking it the BMW and being taken back by a ridiculous quote (~£700, but not guarentee to fix ) i thought id finally look into fitting one of these in. Questions, Ive seen a few around on fleabay, prices range from £5-£50...what exactly should i be looking for? is it easy to fit (will defo need an idiot's guide)? any suggestions?

    Engine Coolant 2005 523i e60?

    all done.....car seems happy now. can blast full heat no problem... ..noticed it seems abit more shaky now when the engines running. and when pulling off it sounds different...kinda like a 6litre v8 (best description)...like its constantly tugging....any ideas?

    Engine Coolant 2005 523i e60?

    coolant change? is that difficult to do?
  13. Hi all, I just got my car back from the garage and on the way home i noticed the 'coolant below minimum' warning came up. question is, the only coolant i have at home is some i had for my R50 MINI COOPER that i got 5 years ago....it's blue like the BMW ones... could i use this?

    E60 - M5 Boot spoiler

    OK....Update...gonna take my car to my local (for something else - to look at the suspension) and thought i might as well let him do it aswell.....so, it's 3m tape or use tiger seal...any specific instructions on how to apply it....(I'm talking 'idiots guide'...as i dont want it to go wrong!)

    E60 - M5 Boot spoiler

    it says 33-9603. Guessing it didn't come factory built as the OEM part number is 5162 7 897 678, right?? oh well.. could that be why it doesn't fit "properly"? I haven't had time to get it fitted again. was hoping to as it's just sitting in the corner of my room gathering dust..so is this more or less a DIY job?
