    I had the air filter and plugs changed on mine, didn't cure it. Nothing comes up on the diagnostics tool.

    Auto Gearbox Advice

    I have the same problem as the one the OP described. At the time when the car developed the problem the gearbox was leaking so it left a huge stain on the drive. Didn't drive it anymore, put it up on a recovery truck and sent it away for oil change, sleeve and sump pan . Since then, the gearbox is behaving pretty much the same as what the OP said and it's really frustrating to be honest as the car has only 65k.
  3. 19" 172 on mine, although it's only an SE, I think they look great.

    Buzzing noise from DISA valve

    It does stop eventually. I said the DISA valve because when I put my hand on it I can feel it vibrating, and after it stops I can see something retracting. Plunger like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Buzzing noise from DISA valve

    Is it normal for the DISA valve to make a buzzing noise after I switch off the engine or open one of the doors with the engine off? The car is a '04 520i.
  6. I've been wanting to upgrade from M-ASK to CCC for a while now but wasn't sure if it's worth spending the money on a unit and on coding. Apart from having a bigger screen, is it wort upgrading? I mean, can you use the navigation on it without any sort of problems and does it have any new features from the M-ASK?

    Very Bad Squeaking

    I have the same squeak coming from the rear seats/parcel shelf on my E60. Took the back seats out, thinking the back of the seat rubs against the rubbery insulation that is just under the parcel shelf, covered the whole of that area with cloths, went away for a long drive, didn't hear anything anymore. Next day, squeak is back again. All of the cloths are still in place so that's not the source. I asked my girlfriend to sit in the back and lightly push and hold down the parcel shelf whilst driving, squeak went away. If I get the chance, this saturday will take the thing apart again and see if I have any luck.

    E60 iPhone 4S how to play music.

    Can you really display your phone's screen on your iDrive using just Dension units? This would be ideal for me as I have a M-ASK without nav and having google maps displayed on the screen would be heaven. I presume this would involve coding after fitting? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    iDrive CIC retrofit in 2004 E60

    Hey thanks for the info. I found some of these links myself and read them over and over again trying to understand everything that's involved in the upgrading process. Be sure I will post everything on here when I decide to do it, no doubt in that. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

    So true, much much smoother... too bad you have to make a compromise when you change the wheels... Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk
