    Castrol Edge 5w30 4L £26 delivered

    I saw that, why do some Castrol oils say Bmw approved and others don’t? the 0w30 does but the 5w30 doesn’t

    Manifold leak

    I’ve got an oil leak coming from the intake manifold, changed all 13 gaskets, put it back together and still leaking. Any ideas? its had swirl flaps blanked with metal Pmw blanks Mate from bmw is suggesting replacing the manifold itself but that’s big bucks

    Cleaning an oil leak

    I’ve had an oil leak that’s soaked under the egr and intake manifold. How’s best to clean it? I can’t get my sausage fingers down far enough to clean it all

    Cleaning an oil leak

    I was gonna spray engine degreaser and agitate and then rinse off but wary of water in the engine bay

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Had gearbox serviced followed by a quick wash
  11. You keep your spare in it as well I assume?
  12. Any recommendations as I’m going to get my gearbox serviced. No issues with it, just preventative maintenance. North west based.

    Got gearbox serviced this morning. Service was excellent. Their workshop is massive and full of cars, which is a good sign. Will be using them again going forward

    Mobile wheel refurb

    Has anybody any experience with these mobile wheel refurbish outfits? wheels have some kerb marks sorting, rest of the wheel face is fine, and it’d be a lot more convenient to have them done on my drive but I’m not sure on the quality of finish compared to having them fully refurbed.

    It’s the convenience rather than the cost I’m more concerned, providing the quality is up to scratch

    Check your scuttle drains!

    Just done mine on driver side. There was about 2 inches of murky water sitting. I couldn’t even see the grommet it was that murky. Felt about and pushed through followed by a gush of water from underneath the car. Thanks for the heads up

    DPF removed and new MOT checks May 2018

    Let me guess, the news article will originated from garagewire? Every year they do this. I wonder if they have a vested interest in dpf cleaning or products related to it??????

    How would you react............

    They did a cracking job, the faces on the people who watched it go buy. Lol

    Carbon Fibre My 535 M sport Parts

    Looks well done. Quite like the idea of interior trim done instead of that 3m carbon fibre that looks cheap imo. Expensive?
