  1. Hi guys, advice is needed once again I have condensation in my offside head light inside the eyebrow (Orange upper part) of my E60 with Xenons. How can I remove this as it looks ugly and I'm sure its not that safe to water creeping around my electrics... I will upload some pics of it tomorrow to show you guys...
  2. Mate mine is the same, It wont read the disc at all and if I leave the disc in the car when i get in it takes around 2-3 mins for the iDrive to boot up. It's sooo annoying!! I have tried a DVD lens cleaner but the was a waste of time as it has done bugger all! I need to get it sorted and need to get the iDrive updated some how as that is really slow also...
  3. Hi guys, I have the 2005 E60 model and I was wondering if it is possible to update the iDrive software as it dose hang at times and takes some time to boot up. I called BMW today and they said they will update the software in the car for me for a couple of hundred pounds which sounded strange as they cant give me an actual price, also I can see that price shooting up once its booked in... Is there a way of doing it yourself??? Also: My Sat-Nav refuses to read my disc, I have looked at the disc and it look fine without any scratches. Should I try a lens cleaner? or is this not advisable to do? Please advise me as all of this is bloody annoying... Thanks
  4. Hello mate, What is the range usually so I know how far to test it from? Thanks
  5. Thanks for the heads up! I know what you mean about the E60, lots of people have asked me why you want a E61 but I think they are awesome. Thanks again
  6. Hi there, I am new to the forum and very new to BMW's. I have always had VW's/Audi's and thought its about time to check out what all the fuss is about on the BMW side. I am currently looking to buying a E61 535d. I know the general in's and out's of what to look for when buying a car but I wanted to check if there are any common faults to look out for around the car? Any common sensors that go? knocks around the car? faults? what miles these engine are good up to? Some stuff like that would be helpful. Please help as soon as anyone can as I am looking to buy one very soon. Thanks
