    Oil in turbo - problem or stop worrying?

    You're better off replacing it with a cast iron manifold

    Has anyone tried an aftermarket DPF?

    or you could try cleaning the DPF once you have removed it?

    Intermittent Active steering fault

    I had a similar issue one cold morning. I stopped the car and then did the full lock to lock trick a couple of times and this seemed to reset the angle sensor
  10. I purchased a spare 2nd hand one of these and it's now sitting in my box of unused parts, if anybody is interested...

    eBay Turbo Core / Cartridge - 525d

    Hello!! I had the core replaced on my E61 by a chap in Southampton - Not sure where he got the parts from, but it certainly did the job.
  13. Might be worth finding a BMW retrofit specialist near you for advice, or pay them to complete the job - they will know what cables, modules and coding needs to be done to achieve what you want.
