    you can retrofit a CIC, but it's expensive. I'd just grab a Tom Tom and Brodit Mount

    Please don't tell me it's the left passenger side wheel arch you need - I threw one away two weeks again, as I no longer have the car and there was no interest in it elsewhere...

    530d M Transmission Shifting after Oil Change ?

    as the transmission ages and things wear, the mechatronics automatically (!) adjust settings like pressure etc. Normally when work is carried out on a 'box, these adaptations are reset, and then the 'box re-learns the optimal settings. Perfectly normal behaviour. The changes might be very noticable if the oil levels were previously low for example. How much oil did they use in the 'box during the service?

    Possibly the gearbox adaptations?

    Coding, switch panel on console, seat modules may need changing and possibly cabling...

    Just died on me. Got some codes - any clues please?

    Battery/Alternator is my guess. Check the regulator on the back of the alternator.

    Alternative e61 compressor feed pipe.

    just dip the end of the pipe into some hot water to help it stretch

    Alternative e61 compressor feed pipe.

    Have to laugh though, Aerosus want £35 for that filter, eBay £5!

    when handling your balls, a good penetration fluid is a must...at least that's what she said...
