    SOS call system failure.

    And you reboot everything at the same time... hopefully.

    Code it out and move on with your life.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Tried alternative Led W5W wedge bulbs for my peasant spec halos. No difference.

    Spyders being awesome is fact, not opinion.

    It's not a test that day, You have to be on your way to it. You should be driving from your home to the test station, without passing Go and without collecting £200 It isn't just about the police, but your insurance too.

    We've all gone days/weeks or even months before realising the mot is out and ANPR didn't pick up on it. A bit googling suggests there isn't a rule about how far you travel, but if you pop to the shops on the way, they'll argue you're driving without a valid mot. Driving two hours instead of getting an mot locally isn't going to cut it either. You must have a prebooked appointment and be able to prove it. You don't have to be taxed but do have to be insured. If you aren't driving a fairly direct route you're leaving yourself more open to get pulled and a ticket.

    It's directly to the test station iirc.

    I had those and they didn't work, probably because I didn't know everything needed rebooting together.

    SOS call system failure.

    Possibly. It might be worth speaking to your indie first for his opinion. You might need to replace that module anyway, although if things are working and you're just getting the SOS error, you can almost certainly install the android unit and code the SOS out.

    Android head unit = no need to use cd changer. I connected it all back together to make the loop and the android unit replaced most of the original functions anyway.

    I didn't know they had to be rebooted together. Now I know why it didn't work when I thought I'd completed the loop bypassing the CD changer with a fibre optic lead. Doesn't matter now. Android sorted that

    Yeah, the stupid thing is part of the audio loop fibre optics or something. Break that loop and that nag pops up. Don't press the SOS button, it could still work.

    You have to code that error out which was a ballache when I looked for what needed doing. Let sleeping dogs lie.

    Reasons to de-badge

    I don't like the one on your kidney grills, but I have black and white BMW roundels all over and that black M Sport badge would tie in nicely which makes it even worse. I'll stick with my "chav stripes" on my grill.
