    Here’s a question. Will I be able to use my car if I take it out whilst trying to fix it? or will it cause all sorts of electronic gremlins to emerge?

    To be fair I’m not finding anything less than £200 at the minute so for the sake of an extra £250 that’s not as bad as you think. I just don’t like spending that amount of money on something that’s probably only £30 really

    Pretty sure it was car shades. https://www.carshades.co.uk/shades-series-2003-c-2729_2784_2795_4814.html looked at getting windows tinted this summer but it didn’t happen. Had shades up 3 years and only take them down to clean the glass ;)

    hi all thanks jason H for taking the time to make the .pdf very helpful. my dvd gave up in the hot weather a couple of months ago. I've been waiting for it to fix itself but no luck also im toying with the idea of adding an Msport body kit to my 2005 e61. can anybody advise if theres any problems fitting rear bumper with my removable tow bar? many thanks in advance

    Should I change both stats now?

    Ooh there's nothing like the first time you apply the brakes after changing ALL discs and pads... you go faster

    Should I change both stats now?

    Change them both. Less than £100 from sytner BMW Leicester. I couldn't tell if there was anything wrong with the main stat. (Not a mechanic) but the EGR stat was stuck open as I could blow through it. there are walk through videos on YouTube makes it very simple. no special tools needed a good set of hex keys would be more useful than the fisher price set that I have temps straight up to 92" within three miles

    Thank you for all the advice

    Morning all, I've joined to say thank you for all the advice and experiences you have shared on the forum. I've had my 2005 525d se e61 for four years and still love it as much as when I first bought it. Over the years I've asked google "how to" and usually end up here! two nights ago I replaced both thermostats and got my over cooling engine up to a whopping 92" Needless to say I will be trolling the forum for other things I can do to my car. Not only to save some money but I got an enormous sense of pride from doing the job myself. (& knowing the jobs been done) im an airbrush artist from the midlands, I dabble in a bit of vinyl graphics on the side. have a look see what you think http://www.envycustompaint.com putting my winter wheels on this week. But am going to give them a quick colour change before I do, probably graphite grey (my car is mystic blue) just for a change Next jobs id like to address and a few questions DPF, to replace or remove? I'm a keep it stock kinda guy but BMW wanted over £1000 for one last year, scary when you see similar things for £250 on the interweb! EGR should I take it off and clean it? or if it ain't broke don't fix it. the level control failure occasionally pops up, wheres the first place I should start looking? software / diagnostics do they do this program for Mac OS? so I can buy a cable from the firm mentioned on the forum? toying with the idea of adding M sport body kit, (just a thought though) My pride and joy is a 2005 BMW 525d se with 130,000 miles on the clock ive changed the thermostats, restored the headlights, LED angle eyes, summer wheels & winter wheels, tailgate window switch replaced and broke again (so I left that) & repaired the tailgate wiring, Thats about all I can think of sorry for waffling thanks for all the help and advice
