  1. boll*x, messed it up with F10 sorry my bad
  2. weird...mines in 2010 E60 was on for a few minutes after car was locked
  3. not so difficult, mate I've had it done in my E60, all what you need to do is take dash trim out, unclip radio / ac panel, remove ashtray with lighter, tap hardwire cable on the back of lighter socket, guide cable behind glove box, tuck into pillar and under headliner (no need to dismantle anything just use plastic pry tool) and voila ... it took me roughly 30 minutes to do it and guess its the best solution as cig lighters socket remains powered for approx 10 minutes
  4. yup, tin foil should work, ferrite magnet not so sure as its used mostly to prevent any interference's between power supply and powered device itself

    Android phone connection to iDrive via USB

    ...well, try different cable then I've went through a few of different data cables (not Samsung ones) to find one which works alrite, with data and music of course (2014 NBT retrofitted). When I select external source on iDrive, it turns Spotify on my phone on

    hi, there might be issue with HUs software not being up to date. try https://www.bmw.com/content/bmw/marketBMWCOM/bmw_com/en_CC/footer/software-updates.html for recent update, it should help (I've had the same issue with NBT not recognizing my Samsung Note
  7. I'd wrap it in tin foil (converter itself), it should help if doesn't, wrap bare wire around tin foil and tap it onto ground, this should eliminate any radio interference

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    thanks mate, indeed, 6wa is a hybrid cluster when 6wb is a full lcd panel. tbh was thinking about getting 6wb but couldn't justify throwing out 600+ euros for a cluster for that money would probably upgrade my nbt to evo

    found small wet oily patch on the left side and it looked like breather pipe is leaking a bit. tried to check that it seats properly in and...it disintegrated like egg shell. holy Molly, almost took a stroke thankfully my local BMW stealer had it in stock (BMW part number 12 71 7 810 772) for 15 euros so fixed it on the spot
  14. got my car booked in for 15th of April due to parts shortage and was told that it will take a day to get it sorted. no spare car for mean time, offered rentals for cheap on that day
  15. Hi guys, got everything what needed to do it just got a problem with the wires connecting heating button with the rest, some d1ckhead chopped the plug off, any idea where to get it or what part number it is? Also, does it need to be plugged in into steering wheel module or somewhere else? Thanks in advance, Kris
