  1. Hi everyone. My front tyres have excessively worn on the outer edges after having the tracking and alignment done a few months back. can you please tell me the optimum toe / camber setting for maintaining a good balance of grip and even wearing? When my tracking was last done the rears had excessively worn on the inner edges so I requested that they were stood up as close to vertical as was reasonable.. but now my fronts outer edges have gone!! It is a 2008 530d e60 running on spyder style 172 alloys. The front tyres are 245/35/19. I like a bit of spirited driving on occasions (it's a bmw afterall).
  2. Thanks geoff..sorry for the delayed response. My neighbour who sold his 1 series has given me his old h8 angel eye bulbs to try.. I'll update you when i find the time to try themSent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    Oh and a custom splash screen to replace the brown lines with the bmw would be pretty cool..maybe a photo of my own car or something.

    Ok thanks.. googling as we speak. One thing I'd love is to add a video in socket to use either with reversing cam or just with a miracast video feed from my phone.. but I'm guessing thats both over ambitious and expensive.

    Sorry if this is a silly question. .. what is "follow me home from keyfob'? Also.. is it possible to code auto full closure of windows on locking without having to hold down the button on the fob? Do you know if there is a list of things that can be coded? Thanks

    Black grilles on a blue e61?

    Many thanks for digging those out.. my 530d has the chrome fins as per your last photo.. I guess i may as well just leave well alone. I'm probably better off sorting my stone chips

    Brilliant thread!! My 530d has stone chips that need sorting before a full detail.. can anyone recommend a body shop or paint guy near Southampton??

    I read it on the forums somewhere.. I'll try to find it. I had it done at Partridge BMW in chandlers ford near Southampton but you should have success with any main dealer.

    Surely the answer is to protect! I snow foam, 2 bucket wash, clay bar, wash again and gently dry, add sealants or wax or both... then for a few months do just a quick snow foam, 2 bucket wash every couple of weeks and reapply wax every 4 to 8 weeks. The wax will keep it cleaner for longer.

    READ THIS!! it may be useful for you to know that there is a recall campaign on faulty wiring looms. I had mine changed because several bulbs stopped working and mine is a privately bought 57 plate e60 with no warranties. Just phone your local bmw branch and ask them to check for current recall campaigns and it they are valid for your model it will cost nothing.
