    530D SE
  1. Hi guys I have had an accident in my 530D which turns out is a total loss and Im trying to find proof of what my car is worth. Can anyone tell me what the comfort seat package cost when it was bought with a new e60 se back in 2004? Regards Jim

    Exhaust gas smell

    Hi guys, after a bit of advice please. Sometimes when running the car, normally whilst idling. I get the smell of exhaust gasses coming into the car. The exhaust doesnt seem to be blowing from anywhere so does anyone have an idea of what this could be? Regards Jim Sent from my GT-N8010 using Tapatalk 2

    Interior wrap - help needed

    New clips arent really an issue if you are careful. There are a few guides on here if you search. Yes you have to take the door trim off to get the handles off.

    I have the same issue. I replaced my glow plugs as one was dead. Problem still persists and the glow plugs have error codes. Where abouts is the controller located and how do i know if its ready for the bin. Also wheres the best place to buy a replacement? Cotswold bmw? Cheers, Jim Sent from my GT-N8010 using Tapatalk 2

    Electrical fault

    Back on this guys, it hasnt happened since but iv noticed that my battery voltage while driving is low. What is the voltagr the car should run at and shouldnit be stable. Currently im running at 14v but it will rise above and drop below this by as much as 0.2 volts. Also it take a long time to climb to 14v when first started in the morning.

    Electrical fault

    Hi guys I need some advice please. The problem I'm going to explain has happened twice in a month. The car is an 04 plate 530d On my drive home from work yesterday, car not upto full temperature. The idrive screen started flickering off and on until it finally went off, then my abs, traction control and brake warning lights came on followed by a transmission warning light. The car lost power but didn't cut out lights etc were still working so I pulled into a mates house and turned the car off. When trying to restart it was like the battery was low. I left the car for 2 hours then came back and it fired straight up with no faults. On the drive home I had the batt voltage displayed and it was a solid 14 volts. It's confused the hell out of me. Both times it has happened it has been the exact same. Anyone experienced this? Regards Jim Sent from my HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio using Tapatalk 2
