    Anti corrosion warrenty

    Sorry to drag an old thread up but do you have any pictures? I've just noticed a series of small bubbles in the paint on my rear drivers door just under the window trim - never seen it before. Car is a 2013 LCI M5 Many thanks

    Cat efficiency below threshold

    Here’s the code from ista, no further tests were calculated apart from visual check

    Cat efficiency below threshold

    Hi That was read with ista+. Couldn’t go through tests as car was too warm, will try in the morning
  4. Hi all get code 180001 on my f10 m5 which says it’s cat convertor below limit value. I have no idea which bank it is. The fault doesn’t come up on the idrive just get the eml light on. Took to mot station yesterday and emissions were too high, something like 0.75 any ideas? thanks in advance

    Removing plenum e39 M5

    Exactly, no space in the garage either now to put the car back in. F10 M5 is a great all rounder, regretted selling my previous one but needed to as I was moving house and wasn’t getting used much as it was easier to jump in the x5. Got brakes all round, plugs and oil to do on the f10 as well, parts here just no time or the weather is bad on the days I do have. I would definitely recommend a f10 but not as fun to drive as the e39. My e39 sounds better but just has this misfire / exhaust popping which is annoying me. Think clutch needs doing soon as well, may just sell it or leave it parked up as don’t have the time. Need to find an estate car as well - it’s never ending

    I really need to get this sorted, just haven't had the time to get around to taking the vanos boards out to test solenoids and change out seals

    Idle doesn’t seem bad and I get the problem when hot or cold. It feels like it’s restricted low down, get past 3-3.5k and it seems better. It’s like it will stall if not too careful. Would of been good if someone was local who could compare to theirs. ran a vanos test with my launch scan tool and it fails on both banks saying it’s out of range and to check timing potentially.

    Worst thing is there is still a misfire and no fault codes I picked up on my launch scan tool. I only cleaned bank 1 vanos, thinking of doing the other as well and changing seals - never ending. It still goes like stink but low down there seems to be some hesitation Starting to get annoyed with the car, my jobs are building up. Got front discs to do on the e90 and discs all round on the F10 m5 - expenses galore

    Removing plenum e39 M5

    Thanks Yes tricky, but easier with plenum off. Previous owner had changed thermostat. I’ve reset the adaptations and going to use and see how it goes. Fuel filter changed as well. Need to fix/replace rpa module, get a connector for angel eye, rear parking sensors and change diff oil Hoping to get time tomorrow to stick it in ista and check for any fault codes.

    Update for those following Window regulator done, just waiting for it to stop raining so I can put door card back on.......all going well but now I have another problem, the starter doesn’t want to engage. Can hear it spin but seems like a stuck solenoid as I’ve managed to bump start it. Any suggestions?
