  1. only? I would hate to think what you think is excessive then? Lol I suppose at that mileage you would expect a few bigger things needing doing. Having as big a car as the F10/11 that can go round the bends as well as it does means suspension will take a punishing with track rod ends and arms taking a pounding especially on UK roads. I’m at 54k other than routine servicing it’s had two new rear springs, rear pads and front pads and discs.

    brake fault codes f10 530

    Did he switch of the parking brake first? Handbrake needs to be off to allow pad wear sensor reset.
  4. Lol we posted at the same time and both said it’s a Friday pm car.
  5. A 530d. Perhaps yours was a Friday afternoon car.

    Flat tyre monitor

    No effect on tyre pressure monitoring regardless if it’s warning or monitoring systems. Just reset it when new tyres are on. I ran mine for a couple of years with rft up front and non rft in the rear. No ill effects from that. I ran the non rfts on the same pressures as the drivers door sill sticker. Double check with your insurance company if they want to know about changing the BMW spec (rfts) to non BMW spec tyres. I didn’t but that doesn’t mean it’s ok. Just keep your self right is all I’m saying.

    Auto gearbox service in Manchester area?

    Yes that's the critical bit. Make sure they are ideally a ZF agent.

    No, only because it has a decent engine in it.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    No the ones on my saloon are black but they are smooth rather than the ridged type which as said earlier are usually to be found with cables inside them. Perhaps thats the issue, non water hoses are being used? I wonder if the previous owner did a bodge repair with the wrong sort of tubing. The ridge profile allows that sort of pipe to flex but its shape when bent repeatedly lends its self to the plastic failing at the bottom of each ridge. A small hole on an electrical duct, no problem but when water is inside it... Any other Touring owners confirm what pipe is in theirs? Although looking at the pics again that tubing looks too well integrated into the loom for it to be bodge repair, it looks like it was meat to be there.

    RDC Failure

    Points to wiring or module issue then.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    Penny dropped moment, yours is a Touring so has a hose going to the rear. ...... I could not think for the life life of me why there would be screenwash hoses in the drivers footwell as there isn't on mine! D'oh

    F10 wheel bolt parts.

    Hi I have locking wheel bolt set part number 36 13 6 776 076 as per link below. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=FR72-EUR-01-2013-F10-BMW-535i&diagId=36_1777 I cannot find a part number for locking wheel bolt 38 or the adapter with code 38. The link above does not list code 38. Can you help me with obtaining a new locking wheel bolt and adapter key with code 38 please? Thanks Andrew

    What did you do to your F07/F10/F11 today?

    Obviously saloons are far better than any wagon! The rear suspension is far more reliable on the saloon.

    Even higher. My 18" winters are 2.3 bar front and 2.5bar rear as per door sticker. The 19" are 2.2 and 2.3 bar from memory

    My 18” are also rft. What pressure are you running yours at @nick_mcuk? The car still handles faultlessly on the twisty bits. I was on a twisty road on Tuesday night coming home in the pitch black and with the adaptive headlights with the high beam assist made for a really nice drive.

    Snap! How do you find running these on 18”? My rear tyre pressure on the 18” is higher than on the 19” summers and the ride is a bit harsher I feel with the higher pressure’s.

    Yes, its just press and hold to reset after making sure you have selected the correct service item to reset. The service item needs to be ready to reset, i.e. at least in the yellow warning. You cannot reset a service item if its still green. I didn't reset my oil service after the interim as it still says today 14,000 miles to go from when the dealer reset it in Oct 18 so its still very much in the green.

    Mine is old skool so I just reset the service in the dash using the buttons I haven't yet done it on the F10, but on my E60 I wrote in the service book myself and referenced the Harry Fairbairn (BMW) invoice number as cross reference to the parts I used. There might be something on youtube that shows you how to digitally record the DIY service on the cars brain.

    Not fancy doing it yourself? I believe someone wrote up a diy guide recently for an N55. Although by the time you pay for the oil and the filter, the £129 is quite attractive. At least you won’t suffer the indignity of having your sump drain pan come over all weak and make a mess on your driveway.
