    Sorry only just seen this, not sure if it gives a warning or not, haven't actually driven past a speed camera with it yet. They do show clearly on the map though, I had a scan into Leicester. I live in the sticks and also have a snooper and a tr30 in my car, so didn't really need the speed camera part of it. I just wanted more up to date maps. Will try and remember to get some pics tomorrow. Jim.

    You can have the view showing the sky/clouds while navigating is the main difference I noticed. Can take some pics of what mine looks like if it helps, but presume you want to see a genuine version?

    Yes just a copy. Mine was on 2009 genuine. Nothing updated software wise, just newer maps.

    EGR blanking but not removal

    Any reputable tuner will be able to turn off the engine light for you. When you blank off you will get the fault code for insufficient flow from egr. The tuner will just adjust the settings on the ecu to say that egr is always closed and therefore it is not looking for any flow and no fault code will show. Any tuner that tells you that you require a map at the same time is full of shit. Ring around your local places and ask for a price. I deleted egr and egr cooler. I was charged £50 for permanent removal of engine light (just as a guide to price). Jim.

    i bought an ebay special...2016 pro with speed cameras. £9.99 posted. winner.
  9. well after 13 years of vw's (still own one, but let the rest go) I took the plunge and decided to go for a BMW. Originally i was after an E92 3 series, but the bloke selling the one i wanted was a douche to put it politely, so after much hunting i settled on a 5 series. must haves were m57 engine, manual box, and m sport kit. after a few weeks searching i found what i was after; the more observant of you may recognise this car, it was gtsteves, but sadly i paid a middle man inbetween him owning it. but never the less steve has been an absolute gentleman in providing information and history on the car. hats off to you sir he is also the reason i am joining this forum, he highly reccomends it! loving the car and enjoy the fact that it sounds nothing like a diesel, sounds pretty evil with the quad exhaust. turns heads everywhere it goes and puts a smile on my face every morning on the way to work. the stereo build by absolute audio is phenominal too. also the snooper and tr30 come in mighty handy so far i have just been fixing bits and bobs on it, like the floppy boot that kept twatting me in the head when it was open. a bit of maintenance under the bonnet. took it for a dyno run too as it didnt feel anywhere near as powerful as the dyno that came with the car said it was (290 bhp and 556 torque) it turns out its actually making 223 bhp at the wheels, 247 bhp and 447 torque at the flywheel. after this i deleted the egr and coded out, would have liked to put back on the dyno to see if it makes any difference or not! feels like it spools quicker but nothing worth writing to your grandma about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTNiC1Ac6P0 so whats next......well as for the power, i've booked in at sp tuning at the end of may for live mapping. I have the annoying blinking/flickering on drivers side headlight when on dipped beam (driving me nuts) so need to do a bit of investigating on that. And need to get the electric wing mirrors wired in, just because things not working get on my tits, will get round to it at some point. and the passenger headlight being a bit cloudy is on the list of things to do, need to invest in a resto kit. Im also hoping to swap the wheels for some borbet style 95's from a 7 series, if anybody has any for sale or would be intersted. hint hint! so far no regrets and pleased with the move to a beemer. Jim.
