    Farewell F11 Hello G32 6 Series

    Lovely motor you have there Matthew. Is it petrol or diesel and how many cylinders does it boast?
  2. Noticed the tyres are wearing a bit thin so thought what better time to look into non-rfts. Looking forward to seeing how they compare.
  3. Own a 2010 530d N57 - its 8th birthday is next week and has done 132k. It's mechanically sound and has required nothing but routine servicing and a set of 6 glow plugs since I gained ownership of it 3 years back. I reckon as long as these cars are taken care of they'll take care of you. DPF/Turbo is all original so hope to see many more trouble-free miles with this car. *touches wood*

    'Replace Battery' warning

    Finally (over a year later!) got round to giving the battery a good charge/recondition with the CTEK MXS charger. Despite this the car is still adamant that I should replace the battery. Apparently the only way to remove this message is to register the battery with software, however this should only be done on a brand new battery. Looks like I'll keep on ignoring this error message for the duration of F10 ownership.
  5. Invested in a CTEK MXS battery charger in the hope of clearing the "Replace battery" warning I've been seeing over the past year.

    Picked up my 520d Luxury

    Welcome along! It has to be said that is one very highly specced F10, must be an absolute pleasure to drive. The forum is a great place for answering any queries, lots of helpful chaps on hand. Hope the car serves you well for many miles to come.

    BMW EGR "Technical Campaign"

    Does anyone know if the 245PS N57 is affected by the EGR cooler failures? I can't say I've noticed any symptoms in the 3 years I've owned my 2010 model.

    Self ignition

    Glad to hear no one was hurt, however the owner must be pretty shaken up. Very disconcerting.

    Thoughts on the F01 7'er

    AFAIK the N57 (as found in the F01) doesn't appear to face the same swirl flaps troubles as the M57 following a new design, but intake manifolds are prone to excessive carbon build up - more of an issue on vehicles that have endured multiple short journeys. Other than that these motors are generally quite robust.

    DPF Regen every 300 miles

    A high mileage DPF will likely be filled with ash so the real capacity falls - could be the cause for more frequent regens.

    First world F10-series problems

    Its thirst for washer fluid - the headlight washers do not help in this regard!

    First world F10-series problems

    Lack of folding rear seats as standard No lumbar support as standard
  13. Agreed, just enquired on the cost of new plugs and it came in to ~£300 so not the end of the world. The F10 has been faultless otherwise in the time I've owned it. The G30's seem to be carrying quite a premium over F10's atm which is a shame as would love to properly experience a petrol BMW before they're legalised off the roads. Perhaps its time to jump in to an F10 M5!
  14. Oh I wish! Recently had the house renovated otherwise an M5 would already be sitting in the driveway! Wouldn't want one without a warraty mind, but they are tempting at £29k for 40k miles on AUC. Not sure the other half would approve however.
