    Help required (diesel in sump oil)

    My car was recently serviced and had more than the stated amount of oil in the sump. There was also a smell of carbon in the oil pointing the finger towards Diesel passing into the sump.. I have been told it could be Injectors staying open or it could be high pressure fuel pump Has anybody else had this issue that could shed some light on this issue.... Also does anyone know of a reputable BMW diesel repair specialist in Norfolk are ? Mike

    Thought it was about time I got some pics up.. I do have some "before Pics" as well which shows the heavy swirls and minor scratches in paint which have all come out

    We were expecting our first child and although it was classed as a family car.! it wasn't that comfy and the noise from the exhausted resonating through your body and head..! Great fun but not for babies.. Also the service intervals at every 2000 miles gets a bit much when the weekly commute was 250 miles

    I have a couple of the E60 but as I said it's being detailed next Tuesday "all day" will get some decent pics up before it gets full of salt/dirt etc The evo5 was my pride, proper jap rag machine, also the 5 & 6 was the most aggressive out of the lot IMO
