    33mpg in a 525d might be right with a heavy right foot, for mixed driving my 530d averages 29 when really pedalling but will sit at 39-40 when Miss Daisy is driving.

    Black shadowline trim stained

    Agressive detergents seem to be the issue here, possibly like what the local hand car wash guys use. I did a test ages ago, I seem to remember that G3 worked well, which is a mild cutting agent. I wouldn't want to use it too often, but that and a proper cleaning regime should suffice. I need to do mine when I get time.

    E61 buyers guide??

    If you have to have an auto (most cars probably are) the SAT auto/manual is a decent halfway house.

    Yes, maybe that was why I never got it done!

    E39 M5 various - parts for sale

    I can't remember to be honest mate! I did buy a spare bumper when I bought the car and did use spares from that over the course of time, it was probably left over. If you put your ear to the sensors you'll hear them clicking, if you can't the sensor is dead.

    Staggered Style 66 Alloys

    Sorry, now sold.
  9. Pair of aftermarket (Depo) headlamps for sale. Excellent condition, working perfectly when removed from my M5 to fit xenon headlamps. One or two LED bulbs on the halo of one have failed, as far as I know these are easy to replace. Come complete with Hella mounting brackets as can be seen on photo's, note that one lug on one mounting bracket is broken so these are just a bonus with the sale - you'll probably use your own anyway. It held the light fine for me for 4 years. £100 collected, add £20 for postage.

    New Sat Nav disc not working

    Does anyone fancy helping out? A working eBay special is what I'm after, possibly one that's sitting in a drawer that someone's swapped for a newer version? Obvs I'll cover postage and return the disc etc. The seller is thinks that the DVD drive is probably aging and weak but as my old Navteq disc works fine I'm not so sure. His service has been great so far and he has offered to refund the cost but I want to know that if I buy another disc elsewhere it stands a good chance to work....
  11. Hi all, I just bought an updated disc which won't work in my drive. The car is a 2008 530d with Pro Nav. I wonder if anyone can advise whether it's likely to be a read issue with the laser? It's a genuine disc says the eBay seller (!) and to be fair he has 100% positive feedback over 3000 reviews - for £10 I'm a bit dubious! When I swapped the old disc (2008) for the new one I did get a message onscreen to switch the system off and leave for 5 mins but then I get an 'insert disc' message. The seller said that old drives sometimes struggle with the bigger amount of (compressed?) data on updated maps but did send me a second disc. Unfortunately I get the same result as the first. Does his response re: old drives ring true? And I wonder if anyone might lend me a newer disc than my working 2008 version to try out?
  12. I never got around to buying my nav disc and edd-jedi's eBay link is now dead. Any tips on sellers for these please? E61 CCC Professional DVD based nav by the way....

    Front suspension wear

    The E6* M Sport ride as standard is shocking, BMW clearly engineered a hard ride for the masses who think hard = sporty. Do you have runflats fitted?
