  1. after a while it notices the car's been still for too long and cancels the regen until it can next reinitiate, so better to keep driving Around town at constant 30mph mine finishes in about 4 miles, mway 60mph it takes around 8-10 miles Also I've noticed the exhaust gets hottest with low revs, anything over 2.5k and it starts cooling down...

    Talk to me about F10s Please

    Bxx has only recently come out, within the last 12 monthsish (?). If you run a vin check it'll tell you the engine type... Might want to check thermostats (operating temp) again if buying a higher mile car, especially after having to replace them twice on one of your E60s!

    Talk to me about F10s Please

    Oh and Chaz, the new Bxx engines seem to be getting very poor mpg, worse so than their previous Nxx counterparts (especially since BMW claimed these new Bxx engines are a lot more efficient that the predecessor). Definitely lots of reports about this for the 2.0 engine, I suspect the same would go for the others too. Maybe the testing procedure has changed or something. I don't know if the new Euro 6 emission specifications are playing a part in the underwhelming mpg figures...

    Knackered ECU

    Might be worth giving Enda a shout, I'm sure he said he can clone damaged ECUs (user name The End on here)...

    AMP failure

    I remember seeing a video on youtube that suggesting just a few caps needed replacing. Seemed very simple to me!

    It happened ! Morimotos are in !

    I've done side by side comparisons between morimottos and eBay, there's no difference If the morrimotos started up like OEM xenons it'd be worth it but they don't even do that... :/

    DPF blocked on e60 520d

    what's your location Nawaz? You're certainly doing the right thing clearing the codes, it should regen if all the conditions regen are being met...

    idrive display comes and goes

    That'll be idrive head unit is restarting, likely it's failed. I'm sure Tuvoc will bring you up to speed As a last resort it might help to disconnect the bluetooth module if you have it, it might be making the drive restart. If that doesn't help and you're keeping your car for a while consider upgrading to the CIC/NBT iDrive head units

    Ignition code dropped!

    sounds like the CAS and DME have gotten out of sync, should be a quick fix with a laptop or diagnotics
