    Moving on...

    Well the insignia didn't last long. Most boring un-inspiring car I have ever owned. I did how ever enjoy not having the error bong going off every time I started the car. Someone elses nightmare now though. Brought a better spec'd boring car though in the case of a Mundeo Titanium X and a E46 convertible for the nicer days. So technically back in a BMW but probably only manage 500 miles a year in it.

    Moving on...

    I have lets say stepped down in class and sheer looks but I have always had a passion for the lesser German marque. What i have lost in looks I have gained in toys/gadgets and age/mileage. Already had a good offer on the E60 and umpteen amount of people asking about the bootlid. VX-Line Insignia. I know not to everyone's taste, but I simply could not afford the BMW I wanted.

    Moving on...

    The E60 went up for sale today, A deposit has been put down on a new steed. Not another BMW as this one has left such a bitter taste in my mouth. So I bid you farewell, this forum has been invaluable to me for help in diagnosing the many many many.... faults I had. All fixed but it's got to go. I have met some good people on here and will continue to drop in from time to time. I'm selling it as is as I can't be bothered to put it back to standard, unless I get ridiculous low offers, then I will take the 20's and the boot lid off.

    Retrofits and Coding

    Grooved caliper slide pin

    Same but these guys are talking about the 535d/540i brakes which are much larger.

    Is the IBS causing this?

    Here's what I have found These 2 errors stored in the SFZ And this in the SBSL After clearing them and restarting the car, only this. Also the dis shows this for the Battery terminal. I've tried a number of different resistors now.

    Is the IBS causing this?

    Changed the central airbag module at the weekend, cleared the errors, Came back as resistance high at 3.8 I think and it's threshold is 3.3 Took the resistor off and checked it, open circuit. Put a 2.2 on and re-run the test, Came back at 1.8 so below the threshold now. I'm going to take the car in to see if the replacement module needs coding to the car and also fit some new resistors.

    Glow Plug Module + Plugs

    It wouldn't surprise me if they were made more to a budget for the aftermarket version. But that interesting about the wire. Never read that before.

    Glow Plug Module + Plugs

    Only way to be sure is to remove one end and have a look. If it's mapped then chances are the DPF has been gutted as well.
