    HELP - 2012 F11 520D total electrical failure

    I had the same issue on my e91, turned put the negative cable to the battery wasnt as yoght as it shouk have been. Green flag tightened it up and hey presto. No new battery needed or anything. Surely these power tailgates will open manually in the event of power failure?? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Lets see your BMWs that you have owned

    First was the 325d SE Auto. Great car, lovely emgine and gearbox. Second was the 520d SE Manual. A step up in comfort, ride, space and refinement, except then engine and gearbox of course... [emoji853] Still miss the 6cyl engine of the 325. Third and current car is the 520d MSport+ Auto. Would still have liked a 6cyl engine, but too pricey. 2.0d mated to the 8 speed auto is much better than the manual. Love the space and looks. Always wanted an MSport [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. Check in the I Drive settings under 'Lights', there should an option to select 'DRLs'. Does this help? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Steering Wheel

    Hi, the steering wheel on my 2013 F11 Lci creates a rubbing noise when the wheel is turned through more than half a turn. It almost sounds like there's a pea rolling around beneath the airbag cover! My steering wheel is the latter M Sport wheel (small round air bag) with paddles . Does anyone know how to remove the cover just in case it is just a bit of grit rolling about. It could of course be something rubbing on the steering rack. Thanks Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    New F11 520d Msport

    I had a 520d F10 SE before and like you regretted not getting the m sport then. One of my main criteria was to get a euro 6 car. I live in North Surrey and can see the value of pre euro 6 cars taking a big hit over the next couple of years. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Lost BMW Connected Services

    Just a quick follow up... I deleted my car from my connected drive account, then re added it. As soon as I re-registered the car and retreived the code from the car the full menus reappeared as before My only theory being that the addition of the private plate somehow confused the online account. Either way, it's all fixed thankfully. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Yes, the car does appear and the details are all there, although on the app it shows as not connected. I might try deleting the car from my account and re-adding it. Failingbthat ill try phoning the connected drive people tomorrow. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Lost BMW Connected Services

    I've only had the car for a couple of weeks. The connected drive services were already subscribed to so I guess I am fortunate to carry those forward as the new owner? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Within my vehicle under the Connected Drive screen, I am only offered the following categories : BMW Services Mobile Care Hotline Your Service BMW Apps Connection Wizard According to my account my services are active until March 2022. All previous Connected Services menu options have disappeared. When I enter the Connection Wizard above, 'Update Sevices' is offered as an option, which when selected says Transferring data...' with the option to sleect OK. If I select OK, nothing seems to happen. If its of relevance registration number has recently been added to the vehicle, approx 2 weeks ago. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Engine camshaft sensor

    As a mildly concerned 520d manual owner whose car is of a similar age, is the 'rattle' clearly noticable above the normal diesel clatter? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
